    This was our second time there and will certainly go again when I am in the city. Bar was pleasant and helpful. Food was great and service was superb. Very pleasant experience all around. Also we were going to see a play and they got us out in plenty of time without feeling rushed.

    We picked this restaurant because it was right next to the theatre we were going to. We were very pleasantly surprised. The price fixe was very good and ample and reasonable at $30 for 3 courses. The waitstaff was nice and accommodating. We had too much time before the play started and they asked if we'd like them to hold off bringing dessert for a while. I had the Bronzino and Caesar salad and they were very good.

    We were very late for our reservation and the restaurant held our table for an hour after we called because we were stuck in traffic. Our server knowing we had theater tickets made sure that our dinner arrived in a timely fashion. I think this an example of how they treat their patrons

    Disappointed that the menu did not include a pre-theater option as was advertised. Also did not seem to offer a separate lunch menu from dinner so lunch was a bit more expensive than anticipated. My entree, although tasted good, was not served hot enough.

    We used to eat at Scarlatto a lot, so when our theateer tickets were nearby, we went again. What a disappointment. The menu has changed, the faces have changed--and the food is down a notch or two. Are they under new management? I think so--and not to the better.

    Waiter had an attitude and was not willing to accommodate some very simple changes. Too many other places nearby to try in the area with much more pleasant wait staff. Said there was a new chef and he didn't want to "bother" with anything different on the menu. FYI- I asked for romaine lettuce tomato and onion salad-difficult right? 2nd request was to have a separate liquor bill since only a fee of us in our party if 6 drank and they would not do it. Another very difficult request!!

    We went into the city to see an Wednesday matinee. I had read many restaurant reviews of the Theater area for lunch before the show. Scarlatto's kept coming up with great reviews. We were not disappointed. The service was attentive and friendly. I told the waiter we had a show to get to so the meal came out timely without a rushed feeling. The food was delicious and the dessert a real treat. Definitely will recommend as well as return the next time we're in the city.

    My date and I were here for dinner before seeing a show on a Saturday night. The service was cheerful, prompt and attentive, and the food was well prepared with generous portions. It was a good value relative to the location. If my date could have taken her leftovers to the theater, we might both have continued our enjoyment of the food during intermission! If you are staying in or near Times Square or seeing a Broadway show, this restaurant is situated within a reasonable walking distance of both. It's quite close to the theaters. We would certainly return here and recommend it to others.

    Scarlatto has been a family favorite for years. We would celebrate birthdays with a show and a pre-theater dinner at Scarlatto. However, last week's meal experience was very disappointing. The food was unremarkable and the servers was rude and unrefined. The bus boys rammed into our seats multiple times, turned to flash us dirty looks, and insulted us "under their breath", however audible enough to us. We were automatically charged 18%gratuity, and when we did not add any additional tip, the waiter and servers were upset and brusk. This is sad as we have been loyal fans for many years, having a special feeling for this place, and we will no longer return.

    We went to Scarlatto's, a restaurant we have been to many times before, expecting to have their wonderful brunch menu, but alas, on Sundays, when you would expect the brunch menu to be in effect, it was not. Thus the restaurant was empty. We were only one of two tables that were used for the 1 1/2 hours (12-1:30) that we were there. I think it would be wise for the management to include their brunch menu on Sundays. I know I would not go back on a Sunday again there for brunch.

    I booked a reservation here to eat dinner before our broadway show last Saturday. They had a lot of good options om the menu for food choices. We ordered crab cakes as- an appetizer and they were very good. The minestrone soup was wonderful with a lemony hint in the broth. It was delicious. The entrees were a good variety from seafood, poultry, beef, and pork along with many pasta choices. The wines are all Italian and the waiter helped us select one for dinner. Our only concern was our tight schedule to get to the show but we made it on time. Reservations should be made if you intend to eat dinner here beforehand because it was crowded. Our theater was close by so it worked out perfectly!

    I had the pumpkin and ricotta ravioli and it was absolutely amazing. I also had the chance to try some of my friend's chicken parm since it was easily enough to feed 2 people. It was delicious, but pricey and really too much food. While the food was great the service was disappointing. We went at 8 and the restaurant only had about 7 other tables and 4 waiters and yet it seemed to take forever to get our waters refilled, and we sat for almost 15 minutes with the check clearly ready as waiters walked by and didn't even glance at us until I finally flagged one down. I defintely recommend it for the food, but if you're in a rush or want a lively server this is not the right place.

    This was our 4th time there and 1st time we were disappointed with service. Food was great as usual. But we had a female waitress with dark hair, who spoke too softly to be heard and was not friendly. We took business clients there and even they commented how disinterested she seemed. We had to seek her out when we needed something and she seemed annoyed when we asked her. Never offered to bring refresher of drinks. Will be back but will ask not to have her again as our waitress, especially if we are there with clients.

    The restaurant doorway is not becoming but the restaurant inside is so graciously done in vibrant colors and nice pictures on the wall. However both the food and the service outdid this. The Prix-fix menu was good and I will try the rgular menu next time. A must for theater goers or those who want good service and food.
