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.

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......

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
Lo consiglio

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.....

イタリアの方はフランクで楽しい。予約時間より早く伺ったがニコニコ対応でたのしく過ごせました。パスタは秀逸で素材の味が生きています。ワインも豊富な在庫。比較的若いクラシッコ系は素晴らしい味で堪能出来ました。週末はかなり混み合っています。予約必須です。

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.

It is a lovely place with a cosy atmosphere. The food is good, I especially loved the fish. The waitress was nice and friendly. However, communication between the kitchen and the waiting staff was a bit disappointing as they didn’t communicate me that they finished caramelised onions (which were in the dish on the menu), until I received my plate. I had to specifically question them. Received a slight excuse with no discount or either complementary dessert. Overall it’s ok.

Found this after a web search for a good Italian seafood restaurant in Kensington. Did not know of San Pietro before but it turned out to be an excellent evening. Interesting menu with dishes served in an appetising way. Wine list comprehensive and very good. Service was great and the ambiance was genuinely Italian. For such a high standard restaurant the cost was very reasonable. Highly recommended

Smarmy, bearded waiter who relentlessly tried to upsell us.
Food , poor. Burned/overcooked,dry baby chicken -left most of it. Deep fried baby octopus like trying to eat rubber, covered in hideous mayo and clump of brillo-pad like salad.Left most of. Each time we told the waiter that the dish was not acceptable, his response he would tell the chef. Don't know if he did, but this is not an adequate response. No offer to replace;no offer to change; no taking the items off the bill.
As my friend , an American, was using a US credit card which are not chip and pin, the waiter then made a big fuss, demanding proof of signature from another document, stating loudly that the credit card could have been stolen. Never had this experience anywhere else in our London trip where we spent far more money in shops, proper restaurants etc.
So, avoid this place as the food is poor, the service is poor, and , especially if you are from the US and using a typical US credit card.

San Pietro is elegant yet casual. The lighting is bright yet not graring. The service is highly attentive yet not overbearing and the food is superb, featuring fresh fish imaginatively but not ostentatiously prepared.
