    We were 3 couples getting together for our twice yearly reunion. We have known each other close to 60 years and have shared many happy occasions. The fellas were ushers at each others weddings. The food was good, the service was the right tempo for people who wanted to "catch up" and no one rushed us out after nearly 3 hours.

    Located close to Broadway theaters, Scarlatto is ideal for the theatergoer. Food is very good, especially the funghi pasta and salmon eggs benedict. Service is prompt, efficient and professional. At busy times, vibrant and noisy, but not disturbing. Prices moderate considering location. Good wine list. Reservations recommended.

    Scarlotto is extremely convenient for a pre-theatre dinner. The service is efficient and the room is very nice. There is a reasonably priced pre-fixe menu. The food is OK but nothing to write home about. Reservations are definitely needed.

    Arrived at 6:15. In and out in 30 minutes. Didn't do pre-theater menu - ordered just pastas off of the main menu. Our pastas were brought to our table 2 minutes after ordering. I jokingly said "Wow, cooked to order". The response was that people wanted to get out to the theater (even though we were out by 6:45 and weren't going to see a play). They are just interested in turning the tables. Fettuccine Bolognese was fair. Tagliolini ai Funghi was OK. The Tagliolini pasta itself was good, but too many mushrooms (more mushrooms than pasta) and a little dry. Most of the food must be already prepared and pastas put into hot water to heat with the pre-made sauces scooped on. Perhaps the pre-theater menu would have been a better choice.

    My favorite part of the prix fixe was the dessert!! I am disappointed that they no longer have the white asparagus and parmesan cheese Appetizer. Ceasar salad was only fair and his time the veal was not as tender spinach great - carpaccio - fabulous

    Tried Scarlatto before seeing Motown the other night and both were great ! The food and service. The salad was huge and my dinner of eggplant parm was yummy. My friend asked for sauce on the side and they brought him a more than ample portion we have already recommended Scalattp to friends

    Reserved Scarlattos because it was close to our 2 pm Sunday broadway show. It was quiet at noon and the food was delicious, especially liked the ceasar salad. Had mozzarella raviolis with asparagus and cream sauce. I didnt find much mozzarella, but the dish was still delicious. Really wanted to try the pumpkin spice raviolis. Was not hurried out. Servers were pleasant and checked on us at appropriate times. All in all, great place for a nice lunch.

    This was the perfect start to a lovely evening at the theater. The service was excellent, attentive and yet not intrusive. We were served promptly but never felt rushed. The food was excellent and the portions were just right. I love Italian food and was not disappointed. It was one block up from our theater and was worth the brief walk!

    table for 2 against a pillar in the middle of the restaurant was unacceptable so we ended up near the kitchen door where we heard the door open and closing for an hour and waiters banged into our chair at least 4 times. Waiters were pleasant and tried to be accommodating Food was not good at all

    We went to Scarlatto pre-theatre and had plenty of time. WE WANTED TO ORDER AN APPETIZER (COLD), AND THE WAITER WAS CONVINCING US WE DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH TIME FOR APPETIZERS. I told him to put in the orders for the entrees and whenever they came out would be fine, but to please bring the appetizer we requested. He relented and we got our appetizer, entrees, and even had time for my daughter-in-law to order ADDITIONAL entree, with time remaining for dessert, if we had wanted it. (Ironically, the waiter did ask us if we wanted dessert and coffee)I attend the theatre a lot,and always leave enough time if I schedule dinner. I appreciate what he was trying to do, but he shouldn't discourage a customer.

    Times Square sure doesn't have a shortage of Italian Restaurants. Olive Garden has even thrown itself into the mix. Scarlatto had a lot of reviews on OpenTable and Yelp which made it an easy choice, especially after it's neighbor (with more reviews) didn't have much wiggle room in their reservations. Back to Scarlatto, great atmosphere, definitely a great place to hit up before or after a show. It's alcohol menu was much more extensive than it's food selection. Sometimes it's nice to have a limited menu (less decision making), but it still had many great options.

    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.

    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.
