A word from Scarpetta - Fontainebleau Miami Beach
Scott Conant, formerly of L’Impero and Alto, is at the helm of Scarpetta™, Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s Italian restaurant and an outpost of his recently opened restaurant of the same name in New York City. The restaurant features ocean and poolside views, a wraparound veranda as well as casual dining areas and a cocktail lounge.

Scarpetta regional menu comprises clean, crisp flavors prepared in layers to reflect the quality of locally sourced ingredients. Known for coaxing the most sublime flavors out of the simplest ingredients, Conant relies on Florida’s bounty of farm-fresh and organic produce to craft menus of surprising complexity.

To complement our wine list, there is a $30 corkage fee (per 750 ML) for two bottles and $70 for any additional bottle (per 750 ML).

    If you want to create a memorial experience it all starts at the fountainebleau miami beach. When I was a teenager I took my sweetheart on our first date to dinner. This mothers day I took her and my children to brunch. The food was amazing the atmosphere was luxurious and the service impecable. Wonderful job on the entire remodel this landmark stands number one in my heart.

    Scarpetta was outstanding! Went on a Saturday night at 9:30 pm. We had reservations and were seated at the time of our reservation. We were early and enjoyed a drink in the bar while we waited. The food was outstanding! We had the braised short ribs, and the polenta for appetizers. Both were great, I could eat a meal of the short ribs. Main course was the ribeye and the pasta with lobster and clams. Both were outstanding! My wife stated the ribeye was the best steak she had ever eaten. Dessert was the chocolate zeppoli, very good as well. We had been wanting try Scarpetta for a while now and it did not disappoint. If you're in Miami and want a fine dinning experience Scarpetta should be at the top of your list!

    While this is an expensive restaurant, the food was delicious and very well presented. The portions are quite adequate and everything seemed really fresh. The chocolate dessert we shared was decadent and scrumptious! The wait staff were friendly and efficient but even though I had a reservation, and I saw many empty tables, for some reason we were kept waiting to be seated. We were not seated in the main dining room but in an enclosed patio area, which was less intimate. I would definitely request the main dining area next time, especially for dinner.

    I would go back to this restaurant in a heartbeat! The duck and fois gras ravioli was to die for. My waiter was so friendly and even gave extra eggplant spread because he knew I love it. Everyone from the bar on was genuinely friendly and seemed happy to serve. My husband and I both agreed that it was the best dining experience ever and we have dined all over the world. The waiter was even going to ask Scott to come say " Hi", but he had already left. That would have been some birthday present!

    Barulhento, menu extremamente restrito, carta de vinho longa porém com preços muito caros ( um vinho de US $ 10 sai por US$ 70), comida razoável. Resumindo, custo benefício baixíssimo. Não vale a pena, a menos que queira ir num lugar badalado, somente para ir e falar que foi!

    Scarpetta is a great restaurant in the trendy hotel Fontainebleu. Service was excellent and the views of the ocean were awesome. Get there at sunset, even though the sun sets West. Apps were tasty. We had the whole Mediterranean fish and it was fabulous; reminded me of Spain. Deserts were awesome - don't pass them up!

    this is one of my go to spot each time I am a guest at Fountaine Bleau. For my bachelorette I made a reservation with excitement to share my past great experiences with friends. To cut to the chase, I will never be returning. Aside from the utterly slow service (we had a 9pm reservation and didn't get served food until 11pm) they were BLASTING the AC - it was an arctic tundra right in Miami. We asked twice for the temp to be adjusted (even the manager came over) and they said they did. One hour in, they had brought us pashminas to wear... when we should have just been moved to a different table. We finally moved ourselves. Food was decent but slow service and overall disregard for customers' experience def didn't outweigh the food.

    The carving station lamb was OK, but the highlights were the foie gras ravioli and the truffle polenta. Disappointed that the deviled eggs and duck prosciutto was not available. Deserts should have included one of a chocolate mousse, cake or cheesecake. Chocolate is a must on Easter.

    Paul
    Dined on 4/20/2014
    We found the wait times standing in line, specifically for the Omelets, to be quite excessive, despite the Chef working as fast and hard as humanely possible! In addition, the selection of food was very limiting, the worst ever of all my previous Brunch experiences, especially, considering the cost per person! Finally, the Service, Waiter Staff, WAS OUTSTANDING!! Couldn't have been better in that specific regard! However, based on my overall experience, I would never return here for Brunch! Sincerely, Paul

    I had an absolutely amazing time dining at Scarpetta. As a huge Chopped fan, I was a little star-struck to be dining at Chef Conant's restaurant. This was my third time dining at Scarpetta, and my third time ordering their delicious signature spaghetti. That spaghetti is easily the best thing I've ever eaten. If you're a big foodie like I am, or can just appreciate good food in a great location, then you should definitely try Scarpetta! From the bread to appetizers (I recommend the polenta!) to main courses and sides to desserts (coconut panna cotta was awesome), you will have quite a memorable and delightful dining experience. :) :) :) Two thumbs up for this great restaurant!

The food was excellent and the service attentive. We've eaten at our FB restaurants, but this was our first time @ Scarpetta, but it won't be the last

    Chose this place for my 50th birthday and boy was it a bad choice. It was like a nightclub the music was so loud. The food was ok, nothing memorable but I've never wished for a tasting menu to end as much as this one. Could have left after the first course but it wasn't cheap so we stuck it out. More of an endurance than a culinary experience.

    I was in Miami with gal pals for our annual girls weekend in Florida and to celebrate a 50th birthday we decided to go to South Beach. While googling "best places to dine" Scarpetta kept coming up as one of those places. It did not disappoint. Others in the party had been to the one in New York, but Scarpetta at the Fontainebleau in Miami was charming. The wine, the food, the service, the vibe was pure Miami. I had the black cod, which simply melted in my mouth. The sommelier helped us choose a wine that paired splendidly with the variety of dishes at the table. Others at the table enjoyed the handmade pasta and roast chicken. We left joyful and pleased that Scarpette Miami lived up to our expectations (other restaurants that week did not)

    My wife and I went to Miami Beach for my birthday and decided to go to Scarpetta on my birthday night. Though it was a little spendy, it was well worth it. We opted to get 4 apps and 2 main courses - rather than do the chef's prefix, because we wanted to pick everything ourselves. Each app was amazing, and we couldn't pick our favorite. We had the stuffed zuccini blossoms, grilled octopus, beef carpaccio and tuna tartar - each one was among the best that we have had. Since my wife asked our server if Nina from Top Chef was working - he said yes, and asked if we wanted to meet her. After our meal was complete - he took us into the kitchen, and we had a moment to talk with her. It was all a great experience and would do it again.

    My sister and I celebrated our birthday by dining at Scarpetta. We were welcomed upon arrival with a happy birthday greeting and that they had been waiting for us! Carlos and his team treated us like queen's and helped with making our selection for dinner so easy. Everything was outstanding!!! Carlos visited our table throughout the evening to ensure everything was going well. The dinner was simply out of this world. We selected the four course menu which was delicious and were also surprised with a birthday dessert. This is a five star restaurant in our opinion and I know the Fountainbleau is proud to have them there. The whole experience was one we will never forget and I suggest make this your first stop in Miami!!!
