Aren't we supposed to be supporting this site so that we can merge with the Guitar site in the future instead of referring there ? Questions from that site should fit here with a "guitars" tag.

comment How can I improve my piano sight reading?
That's what I mean. "Satisfying" level depends on the person. For most people it is enough to be able to read enough to play music that is up to their level and maybe a little beyond. That should certainly be the minimum.

It depends on what a "satisfying" level is. Sight reading is not just about identifying pitches (A, B, C...). It is also about rhythm and other composer specifications about volume, speed, etc. In the ideal case you would take lessons just for that. It took me about a month because I started forcing myself to sightread as soon as I started learning to play and the pieces had a very simple rhrythm using only a few notes. As you progress with your technique the music notation will become more complex and your sightreading will have to adjust to that, so your progress will be constant.
