We recently went to Scalini Fedeli for my husbands birthday and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service good. All courses were delicious and they had a really good selection of apps and entrees to choose from with some really nice specials. The only comment would be on decor it is a little tired but the ceiling was beautiful and made you forget about the tired furnishings. We would come back again and again for sure.

Delicious food and nice atmosphere
Delicious food and nice atmosphere for my daughter's high school graduation luncheon. The staff could not have been more attentive. It's a hassle to park at some of the area restaurants; not so here. They have their own parking lot adjacent to the restaurant.

Short and sweet: the ambiance and service were superb. The prix fixe menu had abundant and attractive choices. The food was uniformly delicious and beautifully presented. Amuse bouche was perfect. Overall: SUPERB

Our waiter was the only negative. He was not very attentive. The bus boy would have done a better job. The food is outstanding and the wine list very affordable.

Best Upscale Restaurant in Area
If you want great food, terrific ambiance and attentive service, there is no better restaurant than Scalini Fedeli. And the price fixed menu of $54 is a great bargain when you consider that an appetizer, main course and dessert in a fine NYC restaurant can easily
be twice that much. And, except for Saturday nights, you can bring your own wine without paying a corkage fee. We have been going there for many years and it has continued to maintain its high standards.

Beautiful room & outstanding food
The dining room is spectacular, romantic, perfect for a very special occasion. The service was impeccable, friendly and informative. The food was perfect from start to finish. The textures, flavors, presentation on each of the courses were of the highest caliber. I plan on taking special friends and family back to this restaurant for future celebrations. They will be thrilled and so will I!

Wonderful restaurant. I recommend it highly. The food is superb. The only problem is that they give you too much.

From beginning to end this was a great evening. Valet, hostess, wine steward, waiter; all were terrific. The food is prepared and plated with great care, and you savor every bite. Very highly recommended, especially for an occasion or special dinner date.

Highlights and Lowlights
Food is very good, but, on a Tuesday evening our waiter seemed overwhelmed. We waited about an hour for our dinners to arrive. And, even when we recieved our food, my husband got the wrong dish, but, he couldn't even inform the waiter of this because he never came back to see how everything was or to get my husband the 2nd glass of wine he wanted. Fortunately, the wrong dish was also delicious. They need to fix the valet situation. If you leave to get your car when others do you can end up standing outside waiting for 15-20 minutes.

The restaurant was terrific. The cost was a little extreme but we still enjoyed it completely. The people were friendly and the food was excellent. I recommend it for a special occasion and not a weekly eat out situation.

My fiancee's birthday dinner
I have been to this restaurant several times. The food is always wonderful. I have to say this time, I was a little disappointed in the service. I felt I needed to chase my waiter down to order another drink. I had told the Hostess that it was my fiancees birthday so that when dessert came we could sing happy birthday. They forgot. I then had to tell the waiter and he then did bring something, but the timing was totally off and disappointing, especially since I had said something before sitting down.
Usually they give you a small plate of chocolates at the end of the dinner. They did not do that this time, when I had seen other tables get it.
I will still go back, but needed to mention the service.

Loved The Food - WHAT????
We went with another couple on 8/10/13 and the food was outstanding and VERY plentiful! The restaurant is very pretty and the service was good. Our waiter came to the table and asked me if I wanted to order a drink. When I replied no thank you he left even though the other 3 in our party wanted drinks. We had to flag him down to come back. Then we ordered dinner and 2 of our party ordered one of the specials and he came back to the table to tell them they were out of it. At 7:30 on a Saturday night they should not run out of the specials. My other criticism was the LOUDNESS!!! Terrible acoustics made it very difficult to have a conversation at the table.
Overall, the restaurant was terrific and I will definitely return.

I have been to Scalini Fedeli a number of times over the years. I have taken different small groups to celebrate special occasions. Every time the food has been exceptional, the staff helpful with suggestions and my guests left the restuarant with a feeling of having experienced something wonderful.

A perfect anniversary dinner
My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and had not eaten at this restaurant before. The five course meal was outstanding and the fixed price was very reasonable. The dinning room is very charming and the noise level was quiet. I highly recommend Scalini-Fideli.

Great Special Occasion Restaurant
We chose Scalini Fedeli as the restaurant to celebrate our 25th anniversary and were very pleased. The servers were very attentive. The food was extraordinary. The atmosphere is elegant. The menu is is prix fixe, which means you pay one price for all of your courses. This includes pre-appetizer,appetizer, entree, sorbet, and dessert. You chose appetizer, entree, and dessert. You will want to make reservations at least two weeks in advance. We will return to Scalini Fedeli for other special occasions.

Everything that we expected
An amazing meal and great wine list. Everything we ordered was as good as expected. Somewhat of a stuffy/snooty crowd, but that was expected as well. Service was consistant and reliable, somewhat stiff and old fashioned (not ours but the older man that was constantly hanging over our shoulder), but again- we expected it. Never made you feel rushed even though we were an early reservation. Look forward to landing a reservation again soon, so many other menu items we want to try!

This restaurant is consistently fabulous. The food was absolutely delicious and the service, as always, outstanding, while not overpowering. My favorite restaurant by far.

Being that it was our first time, I expected more explanation of the menu and about Scalini Fedeli's dining experience. However, the food was fantastic and It was a perfect place to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. I was shocked at how reasonable the prices were, as I always had a preconception that Scalini Fedeli would be way too pricy. I was shocked at how many people were there for a mid week dinner.
The food came out extremely fast. We would just be putting our forks down and the next plate would be set down. I usually would never make an observation about food coming out TOO fast, but it was unusually quick.
I will definitely be back, many more times

Great place for a special occasion
We went here for a celebration. It was pricey, but the food was well done and the service was very good. I would recommend this restaurant for a special night out.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
We've been wanting to try Scalini Fedeli for a long time and we're thrilled that we finally made it there. Pretty dining room, great selection of appetizers and entrees to choose from. The additional small courses they throw in are a great touch! The quality of the food was really top notch. The butternut ravioli appetizer was excellent, as well as the filet mignon and veal chop. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and this was a perfect choice. Portion sizes were perfect, and I actually barely made a dent in my dessert. You get alot of food for the price, which I must say was inexpensive given all the food we had. Can't wait to go back!

Best of the Best
Well worth the hour + ride it takes me to get there! Would drive even further to eat here! This gem has become our favorite restaurant as well as anyone we bring with us! If we lived closer we would be there every night!!
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food, service and atmosphere were excellent. The Price Fixe menu was extensive and well described. Very relaxed, non-rushed atmosphere and service, even though we closed the place. Even chairs were very comfortable throughout for large guy who has to get up usually to stretch his back/legs during dinner. Nice touches on all courses. Very pleased.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
With beautiful decor, a caring staff, outstanding food, and a moderate noise level, this is a high end restaurant worth the price.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We don't make it to Scalini Fedeli often, so it is such a treat each time we do. The service was fantastic, and the food was perfection. I will have dreams about the soft egg yolk ravioli in truffle butter!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
And service and ambiance....and good portions. We will invite many others to go.

Great Weekday Retreat
Have been to Scalini Fedeli many times and most recently week and one half prior to this visit. This was a Tuesday night....one of our favorite evenings out. Compared to the packed and much more noisy Saturday Night, Tuesday was fantastic. The menu is quite extensive and there are numerous specials. The portions are quite large and the flavor always outstanding. The seafood risotto was especially noteworthy as an appetizer. The paperdelle with ragout was very tasty. This is a can't miss restaurant and needs to be on everyone's list of outstanding restaurants with outstanding value. The prix fixe menu is tremendous.

Superb Dining Experience
From the exterior, this restaurant is not very inspiring. You may even miss it if you are not looking. Inside it is a very cozy dining area. Nicely decorated. Very good service/attention. The best part of the experience is the food itself. Perfect. We tried several different types of dishes, all perfectly prepared and unforgettable. A dining gem in Chatham, NJ.
