Authentic Italian that specialises in fish. All the dishes, whether seafood based or not were excellent, service was fantastic and will happily go again

Simply put the food was awful, tasted like the actual chefs are still away and freezer is being emptied, bland saltimbocca and double portions, too much.
We’ve eaten here several times and always good. But, last night food was not good. Both sick all evening. Bye

Wonderful and attentive staff. Food was excellent with generous portions. Well thought through CV19 procedures. A bit expensive but worth it for the food and surroundings.

Good but not as good as previous times. Maybe they have to get back to the old routine in the kitchen.

Very nice evening. Food and service excellent. Starter of octopus was fantastic! Would have been fabulous at half the size 😂.
We really enjoyed our night.

Everything was great! Friendly service. Maybe a tad on the expensive side for the wine, but we were happy with it.

I enjoyed my meal here with the carpaccio of sea bream and snapper as a main course. A small restaurant which packs a bang.

We had a nice evening with ups and downs as there’s is always something to blame for however we focused on the nice atmosphere. We had a good laugh and made fun on the things that went wrong. Well done to the team members for creating a pleasant ambience.

This was not a very lucky visit for us. Probably it was a bad day for the restaurant but we won't rush to come back. There was a big party downstairs and may be that was the reason for a lack of service but the food was not that great either, the starter with octopus was just bad, the main course was OK but for that price it should be great not just OK... We were so looking forward to try this restaurant as it's our nearest local place and it would be great to come for dinner every now and then but no, no wish to come back soon.

Our first experience was fantastic but not unfortunately on this occasion. Friendly and attentive service but our bread was straight out of a fridge and frosty cold, our dishes were delayed as the order was lost (must mention we were offered money off which was the right thing to do) and our dishes were plied heavily with salt. Seafood generally very fresh and well portioned but my sea bream was completely overwhelmed by large quantities of salt thrown on to the plate. Ambience good but the little touches were lacking. Warm bread, good olive oil... The aubergine parmigiana was fantastic.

We were treated as inferior customers due to being younger than the other people dining, the waiters ignored us mostly and were rude, the food was fairly bland as well as taking a long time to arrive.

One of our favourites. Unfortunately on this occasion they didn’t have the wine we selected from the menu and we weren’t served bread. However the restaurant remains excellent and the fish is simply superb.

We have been disappointed by the lack of consistency in the quality of food : sea bass was delicious but the sea bream was overcooked as well as the kale swimming in butter, the semi fresco was tasty but the Eton mess a disappointment, 4 little pieces of strawberries among a white mass . The ambiance is good but the tables are too close to each other .

Just average. We had the octopus with potatoes as a starter and it was pretty bland (plus it literally had 4 tiny pieces of octopus). The mains were better.
Service needs improving. Not sure if it is a language barrier, but the waitress came across as disinterested/borderline rude. The worst thing in my view was the fact that we ordered two glasses of a specific wine on the list, they took the empty glasses away from the table to the kitchen and filled them in. I personally prefer when they do so at the table, showing the bottle and allowing to try. It’s just a bit touch that makes a difference in my view.
Prices are ok. I would not return

Food was perfect. Especially the Catch of the day. Fish was fresh and nice display. Atmosphere is good, fit out cost. Will be the place I will come again. Tiramisu taste nice. Order too much food for more dessert. Try best time!

Made the booking haven’t eaten many times before. The food is very good & normally service/staff are friendly. However this time we were told at 9:30pm that they needed our table back at 10pm. We were not told that when we booked. We were then told the same thing another two times before 10pm. They wanted us to love to the bar to finish our pudding - instead we left our pudding unfinished and left.
So annoying. Ruined a good dinner. Doubt I go back.

San Pietro remains one of the best Italian restaurants in London ..... fish is exceptional (the Crudo selections are top notch), pasta perfectly cooked (though slightly low on salt) and very friendly staff and owners ..... major kudos to the management for doing something that is not so much common practice here in London .... one of our dishes was misplaced and had to be reordered with a long delay and it was offered to us at no cost ...... small things that make a difference

1. I booked two weeks in advance. Was informed upon arrival that we had to vacate the table within two hours. This is unacceptable.
2. Our guests and ourselves were harassed towards the end of the meal to vacate our table within ten minutes.
3. In addition, despite booking early we were seated right next to serving area with one underssized bunk to seat two people.
4. Three of us had fish as a main course. All servings were overcooked - mortal sin for fish.
5. The manager on duty had a breath from hell - reeking of stale tobacco.
6. We have dined here frequently and only ever had excellent food and service. This occasion was a disgrace. New manager?

Very welcoming Italian eatery that offers good value for money. But it is not for non seafood diners as most of the recommended dishes are fish related. Excellent vegetable dishes include cauliflower and white asparagus, peas and other greens. Dessert selection looked tempting although we ddin’t try all.
