San Pietro Ristorante Italiano
Small out of the way restaurant - fabulous food with authentic Italian flair
We had a wonderful lunch. Everything fresh and perfectly cooked. A real Italian pleasure.
Food here is brilliant, staff very friendly and a good wine list. In the mid range for price but also nice location.
We discovered San Pietro by accident. We were hungry , it was just around the corner from our AirBnB. We received a warm and friendly reception (always a good start). The premises is nice and we were expecting a "nice but unremarkable " meal.
What we got was so much better.
We each (Three of us) had different starters , we all disagreed as to which was better , but all thought that the quality of ingredients and cooking was excellent.
Then came the Main Courses. Even now I am salivating thinking of them. We enjoyed them so much.
The next time that I am in London I will stay near San Pietro , just so that I can eat there.
We ate there Friday 06/09/2019 and again Sunday 08/09/2019
I have no hesitation in recommending San Pietro to you
Excellent local Italian restaurant that provides simply good cooking in a lovely atmosphere. We found this via the Good Food Guide and it definitely deserves it's entry! The food was delicious with a wide range of choices, the wine list reasonably priced and the service attentive but not intrusive. The ambience and decor was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We will certainly be back when we are next in South Kensington.
A particularly nice evening at San Pietro - both order Pasta mains one special veal ragout and sea food pasta both dishes exceeded expectations
Excellent restaurant italien. Cuisine raffiné. Personnel avenant. Une très bonne table à londres.
One of my favourite restaurants. The menu has changed a bit which was exciting and the food was amazing- really impressed. The raw fish starter was delicious and the grilled tuna had a lovely Smokey flavour. Everyone at my table thoroughly enjoyed their food too. Definitely recommend. Thanks so much!
We have dined at San Pietro previously and loved it, so booked again online. When we arrived at 7pm we were disappointed with our table - in a corner, right by the door and beneath very cold air conditioning, and very close to another occupied table. There were plenty of unoccupied tables. When we asked to be moved we were told all tables were booked. Most tables remained empty all evening right up to us leaving at 9.30pm!!
Love it! Delicious
A wonderful local dining experience. We would hope to get a less cramped table next time.
Lively Italian restaurant. Excellent fish. We both had the Linguine ai frutti di mare. Highly recommended!
Wonderful experience as always. One of the best Italian / Fish Restaurants in London by a mile !
Surprisingly good. Having lived in Italy for quite a few years, the pasta was excellent and so was the fish. we will be coming back!
Food was excellent and authentic, though fish for a couple of us was a little overdone. Great wine list, with some top notch (and inexpensive) options, patience with our brood of children.
First time but won't be my last...... Fabulous restaurant and in my hood so even better! Only complaint was the couple across from me should have got a room! PDA is not appealing any where but while you are eating, even less so! They were both actually groping each other and at one point, I thought he was going to start removing clothes.........
The best, most welcoming, high standard, Italian family restaurant for a superb selection of fresh fish, yet to try other dishes, they looked amazing too!
Not enough waitstaff. We arrived at 8.45pm but were not able to order for nearly an hour. Table next to us got very impatient when food arrived on sideboard but was not served - left to cool while waitstaff attended to another table, where there were equally impatient guests. We were offered free drinks while we waited but we would rather have eaten! Fish when it arrived was overcooked - perhaps the cooks were overstretched as well. Rest of food good. Nice ambience. Waitstaff, despite the pressures, did their best. This place has potential, but they need more people.
The staff was so lovely to us from the moment we arrived a little early for our reservation. The food was delicious. The restaurant is beautiful. It was a perfectly romantic spot, seated by the upstairs window, that we toasted 26 years of marriage. I’d recommend this little gem.
Delightful restaurant, tucked away in a quiet street of Kensington. First Class cuisine, bright, clean comfortable ambiance, with jolly good service. Innovative daily offerings on the menu. Best risotto I've ever tasted. My third visit to this restaurant, and I will keep going back.
My best neighbourhood place ! Enjoy !!!
I was hungry. The food was good and homely. The mussels were fresh and yummy. Well done !
We found this Italian restaurant delicious! We had fresh fish which was amazing! The plus/ the limoncello after the dessert, offered from the tenant as always is in Italy.
The food is good and the fish is really excellent. Unfortunately the service not always very slow.
Pretty disorganised and late in delivery of the food. Octopus too salty. Waited for 30 mins for the wine
Obviously, the seafood is the main attraction here. The scallops with butternut squash mousse were delightful, as was the linguine with mixed seafood. The mains were also very tasty, and portion sizes are good.
Just off the main Windermere Road,so very convenient if staying locally.We did book in advance,though it was quiet when we arrived and despite telling the staff we had booked,were shown to a table ( The restaurant said later we were a no show!1) - however our pizzas were delicious,and we would go there again.The staff seemed keen to close ( Sunday) so I guess they rushed us in and didn’t bother checking our reservation.Another couple were hurried in -so memo to restaurant,check your reservations and if you say you open till 9-30pm,expect customers up till that time and treat courteously......
Excellent food and excellent service. Highly recommended.
The place is perfect for a bite of italian taste, in the middle of London. Advice: pick a table on the first floor
Ho prenotato con open table in questo ristorante e ho mangiato molto bene , abbiamo anche condiviso una eccellente Margherita in due per assaggiare la loro pizza e devo dire che era favolosa
Il locale è piccolo , ma molto carino , non lo consiglio con passeggini
Loro sono napoletani, e come loro tradizione molto accoglienti
Great simple Italian food
Remains one of the best fish restaurants in London .... the raw fish options are special with italian flavours that enhance the natural taste of the freshest of fishes .... the main courses are all very innovative / 'different' in terms of fish / condiment combinations ..... the side dishes have some great surprises (ie puntarelle ; scalogne) .... wine options are very solid ..... highly recommended
This restaurant was so superb that all of us decided to visit here again in the near future.
Wine and food was excellent and we enjoyed the bright atmosphere.
We entered around 7:30pm, however, almost the tables were occupied and we realised how popular the restaurant was.
Finally, we were surprised to see the total price was much cheaper than we'd expected.
We really recommend this restaurant!
We are very fond of San Pietro as our neighbourhood Italian. The food is consistently good, and the service excellent. And chatting with the chef and sampling his culinary expertise with the anchovies a special delight.....
Very friendly service, nice food and relaxing atmosphere
Just passing through London for the weekend and stopped in for a quick dinner at the bar. Had an exceptional experience with great recommendations from the staff. Any of the pastas will satisfy you immensely. I had the special and the swordfish pasta. Pretty amazing place! Would be great for any occasion if you like Italian.
Really Nice Place. Very good food and super waitress. We’ll be back! 🥰
Our favourite local by a country mile! Wonderfully sourced ingredients and lovely staff....
