    Last weekend, my wife and I took my mom for lunch at Muscato and we all had a wonderful time. Our appetizers and entrees (starters included a pizza of the day and rolled eggplant with ricotta; entrees bronzino and a veal dish) were beautifully presented and delicious. And the desserts (tiramisu and Italian cheesecake) were incredible with generous portions (and although we do not typically eat dessert, each of enjoyed every last bite). Although it was our first experience at Muscato, it quickly ranks as one of our favorite Italian restaurants in the county. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

    My husband and I very much enjoyed food, dry red wine, and service at Moscato. We liked the arugula salad with watermelon and pecorino cheese and the appetizer Margharita pizza. The pasta with cheese and black pepper captured the Roman style and flavor that we like. The featured halibut was very good, too. Coffee was hot and strong, as we prefer. Service was pleasant and attentive but not obtrusive. We will return.

    We took the train up from Manhattan to meet friends for dinner in Scarsdale. As jaded New Yorkers we did not expect much, What we found was excellent food and extraordinarily professional and courteous service in a quiet atmosphere. A five minute walk from the train station, Moscato proved well worth the trip.

    Went on a Friday evening and every table was filled and the noise level made it virtually impossible to converse. Too many tables close together. A shame because the food and service were very good.

    This is exactly the type of restaurant where I feel welcomed and well served where my money is worth spending. It is a small restaurant but the tables are not cramped together like the last review mentioned. It is an elegant ambiance. We came in for dinner so probably it was more quiet. I say kid friendly because we came with our kids for my daughter's 14th birthday and they really were attentive to them and sang HB to her! All the pasta plates we tried were very good but for desert you must have the Tiramisu, the best we ever had, and we dine out alot!

    Excellent service and the food was very good. The tables, however, are packed together to the point where you feel you are engaged in communal dining. The noise level is unbearable to the point where we were at a table of four and despite the fact that the table was extremely small you could not have a conversation with the person across the table. Maybe I am getting old and do not appreciate that it is chic to dine in a restaurant where you have to scream at your dining companons.

    Moscato is an excellent restaurant with excellent food. The service was very attentive, and the manager was generally concerned with the dining experience. The only negative I would point out is that it is quite a noisy place.

    We very much enjoyed our dinner with fine service at Moscato. The arugula salad with feta cheese and watermelon had good contrasts in flavor and texture. Margharita pizza had very thin, tasty crust and the right balance of good sauce and cheese. We liked the long pasta tubes Roman style, with cheese and black pepper. Grilled dorada was excellent and came with grilled zucchini and eggplant, and some chopped fresh tomato. We also enjoyed our Sonoma zinfandel and the restaurant's hot, strong coffee.

    I went to this restaurant with two friends who had a lot of catching up to do, and they did not rush us out. We ordered three different dishes---all were filled with layers of flavor. The chicken scarpiellio was especially tasty and was the groups' favorite. The wine was good but a little pricey at $15 a glass.

    Our dining experience at Moscato last Saturday night was lovely. Our dinner was molto delizioso. The sea bass was cooked to perfection and the garganelli with lobster was very good, although it could have contained a bit more lobster and sauce. Our chocolate mousse cake special was beyond delicious. Loved it! The staff was very efficient and accommodating. We will be back!

    Service, food, and wine at Moscato were very good. When we asked two days in advance to add a third person to our party, the maitre d' was very accommodating. We enjoyed the red wine we had selected, the pizza appetizer, salad, the dorado entree, and pasta with funghi. Water and bread were readily replenished. The olive oil was good. Other diners included people of different ages. Although the restaurant is small, management uses space well, so diners do not feel crowded. I definitely recommend Moscato.

    This was our first time dining at Moscato and am glad to say we were not disappointed! We had made a reservation to be on the safe side and thank goodness we did as it was packed! We were seated right away and despite how crowded the restaurant was the service was great. We will certainly be back to dine in the future. Moscato is definitely the best fine dining restaurant Scarsdale village has to offer.

    The food itself tastes good and is well prepared, but it really is middle of the road and uncreative--if it ever went away, we would never miss it. We pop in on an average of once or twice a year and have been since they opened. In all those visits, regardless of the season, the side vegetable is ALWAYS green beans for every dish. Servers are friendly but harried and frantic and become more so as the evening progresses--it goes from receiving good service to feeling a sense of pity and frustration for the waiter. Management, however, is always attentive, responsive, and works hard to smooth feathers and win loyalty; other than the restaurant's convenient location, it's the most important reason we ever return.

    Moscato is a top notch Italian restaurant that has it all. I am very picky about Italian food since I am of Italian heritage, but I feel I have discovered a real gem in Moscato. The price fix of $24.50 for lunch is fantastic and you have wonderful choices in three categories. You cannot beat it. Service is impeccable. My son had his baby's baptism there and everyone loved it. Staff could not have been nicer. If you like risotto, you won't be disappointed. Imagine making that dish for a big crowd. I like the fact that there was valet parking (no tipping) in the back of the restaurant, so that during the day I did not have to feed the meters in Scarsdale. Love, love this place.
