San Pietro Ristorante Restaurant Review

: Indoors and out, San Pietro resonates with the sunny ambience and flavors of the Amalfi Coast. The four Bruno brothers add to that by showering guests with a warm welcome. San Pietro is pricey, but the flair and finesse of the kitchen keep it busy. Executive chef Antonio Bruno imports some 85 percent of his ingredients from bella Italia, and while the menu is subject to seasonal changes, favorite items include appetizers like veal and beef meatballs in white wine; tender pan-fried calamari and artichokes; and baby octopus and mashed Roman-style cauliflower. Entrées that shine include ravioli filled with buffalo mozzarella and porcini mushrooms; or the baked rack of lamb with broccoli rabe and whipped robiola cheese. Desserts change nightly and may include caramelized berries and crème fraîche, dark chocolate tiramisu or crème brûlée.
