Expected more atmosphere. The place was far too bright for evening dining. The food was good but I expected more from this place, and my husband was not impressed with the panna cotta at all. The local wine we had would have been okay, but...More

Very disappointing. No atmosphere, food was not good and my wife had the local and recommended fish that was tasteless. My escalope was over sauced probably to mask its poor quality.

The Hotel Riposo receptionist helpfully located this restaurant, which graciously acceded to our request for saltimbocca, even though it was not officially on the day's menu.

We have visted the San Pietro for many years now. The staff have remained the same and they have the quality service fully mastered. There are good varied choices for all courses and the wine list is amazing. My all time favourites is the homemade...More

The meal and the service were excellent tonight! We shared the rocket and mozzarella salad and I had the folded pasta with porcini filling and cream sauce. The highlight was the shaved truffles! It was delicious and I had to mop up the cream with...More
