San Pietro Restaurant crowned Restaurant of the Year at Lincolnshire Food and Farming Awards

San Pietro Restaurant, a culinary gem in the heart of Scunthorpe, has been honoured with the prestigious Restaurant of the Year title at the Lincolnshire Food and Farming Awards. This recognition is a celebration of their two decades of delivering exceptional fine dining experiences, rooted in rich Sicilian heritage.

San Pietro stands out for its commitment to high standards across all aspects of its operation. The restaurant is lauded for its professional, yet personal service, and its outstanding food that consistently goes above and beyond customer expectations. This dedication to excellence is reflected in the numerous glowing reviews and the loyalty of their customers, who consider themselves part of the 'San Pietro Family'.

The kitchen's reliance on local suppliers for the freshest ingredients is a testament to their commitment to quality. Fresh daily fruits and vegetables, premium meats from a Yorkshire butcher, and hand-picked fish from Grimsby form the foundation of their varied and creative menus.

San Pietro's cosy and intimate setting is ideal for all types of diners, from couples to families and larger groups. Their diverse menu options, including the popular Menu del Giorno, the full A La Carte menu, and the 'Taste of Sicily' eight-course tasting menu, offer a culinary journey inspired by Chef Director Pietro Catalano’s Sicilian roots.

Unique to San Pietro is the integration of their own Sicilian products, such as olive oil from Pietro's family farm and tomato sauce from his cousin’s harvest, into their dishes. The restaurant also features a shop selling Sicilian products, showcasing their deep connection to Sicilian culture and cuisine.

Winning the Restaurant of the Year award is a testament to San Pietro Restaurant's uniqueness as a true Sicilian dining experience, bursting with heritage and culinary excellence.

The Lincolnshire Food and Farming Awards are organised by Stonebow Media, publishers of The Lincolnite, and MyLocal Lincolnshire. The event was generously sponsored by Barclays Eagle Labs, Duncan & Toplis, Visual Print & Design, Masons Rural, Fizzco and Sills & Betteridge.
