    We had dinner before a show here. I generally have low expectations of restaurants in Times Square/theater district but we were pleasantly surprised. Very attentive service and I thought our food was excellent! The pasta portions were generous and could probably be shared along with an app or salad. We also had dessert and those portions were giant. Definitely a shareable size. For the price I thought the quality, service and portion sizes were worth it considering most restaurants nearby are overpriced for mediocre food. Will definitely return next time I'm in NYC.

    had pumpkin ravioli and coconut cream pie which were both outstanding. However had meatball for appetizer which was billed as "kobe beef" and it was awful! sauce was bad and meat was not tasty. service was bad - they brought over our check without even asking if we wanted dessert or coffee. there are tons of great restaurants in the area - find another. also luckily we were upstairs because downstairs is too crowded and noisy.

    Upon our arrival we were greeted by a friendly hostess who immediately seated us. Our waitress brought or menu's and took or drink order. When she returned with our drinks she asked if we were ready to order...probably 3 minutes had passed...we said we needed more time...a few minutes she returned again asking if we were ready to order..again we said we needed more time.....she did the exact same thing to the couple seated right next to us....when we did order the food was promptly served with little time between courses. The food was outstanding....the service was rushed...probably a nightly occurance for the dinner crown before the 8:00 pm shows on Broadway.

    The food was good-and three of the patrons enjoyed the egg plant parmesian. The butternut squash soup was the minestrone was quite good .However, the service was uneven. Not all of the food cam at the same time. Although I must admit that matre de was most accommodating. We have been to Scarlatto in the past, and will come back again.

    although my entrée was quite good, the bread was very stale. When I asked for fresh bread, was told that it could be warmed up in the oven. I asked for it to be replaced, and received another basket of stale bread.

    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.

    My wife and I have eaten at Scarlotto many times over the past few years. I have felt, over the past few visits, that the food is not as good as it used to be. There are many other places close to Scarlotto that are at least as good if not better, in the same price range.

    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.

    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.
