    It is convenient, being right in the theater district. Across the street is an icon garage for which you can get a $25 coupon. The food is Italian, and there are several dishes which do not have an Italian influence. All-in-all, Scarlatto is a great place even if you're not going to the theater. You can see that they are aware of where they're located. They make sure you are served promptly.

    When I checked in (early), the restaurant was not crowded yet, but the Maitre d' sat me at a table right by the kitchen. My husband came shortly after me and was seated at a different table. Apparently he was confused by 2 parties with similar last names, but we kept saying we booked on Open Table and can show you the reservation. Didn't make much sense. Service was good, but I was seated by myself for about 20 minutes and never served anything but water. Can't you give a person bread? They were also in a big hurry to clear the table- i was putting on my coat and my purse was on the table, and the busboy was shooing me away. He couldn't wait 2 minutes for us to leave? The table next to ours was cleared and a new party was seated, while the original party wasn't finished and just got up to go to the ladies room- her coat was still there. Food was good and i like the menu. I may recommend to a friend.

    I started with the pumpkin ravioli which was tasty. The crispy sage in with the butter sauce was prepared well. My chicken parm was one thick piece of chicken with sauce and cheese on top. It should have been pounded thin before frying. The marinara sauce on my pasta was just cubed tomatoes. .It had no taste.The chef (I use the term chef loosely) more of a cook and needs to step up his game or be replaced.

    Had never been to Scarlatto and we arrived early and were immediately seated. They had a delicious Tuscan wine for $12 per glass which was lovely. The prix fix at $29.95 offered a nice selection and both my friend and I had the branzino over broccoli rabe, with fingerling potatoes. The butternut squash soup to start was delightful and quite a large serving. The branzino was mild and the broccoli rabe delightfully seasoned with garlic and oil. A very enjoyable evening.

    food was excellent. wine delightful. but service was mediocre. we felt rushed by the water to take our orders, even though we informed him that we were not rushed for time for curtain call. he kept making these exasperated looks with his eyes if we asked for something like olive oil on the table. but - don't let our bad experience deter you from enjoying the wonderful food and ambience.

    Dined on 11/2/2014
    Well apparently you can. I had one of their specials Chicken/Artichokes (canned type)/and underdone risotto. While the Ambiance is adequate we had just returned from a Broadway show, cold and hungry. The (3) of us were hoping for what was reviewed as a 4**** on Open Table, to sit and enjoy a well cooked Italian meal. Sorry to say it was anything but that. One of us had "homemade Raviolli" half were missing the filling, one of us had Bolognese Sauce which was nothing to write home about. Overall would not recommend. Oh the bread...NYC the best place in the east to get crusty Italian bread.....not here...go elsewhere.

    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.

    Hostess first tried to seat us at a table which was under an eave. When I refused, she took me upstairs. Hostess had a bit of an attitude. Upstairs was Quieter but not terribly attractive. Service was very good. Food was okay.

    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.

    The calamari and fried zuchini app was big! A lot for 2 people but was amazing! Great to get your money's worth! Then, I had the fettuccine and bolognese! It was amazing and you could tell the pasta was homemade because it was so thin! My partner had the brisket burger! Fabulous! Excellent food and the service was great!

    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.

    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.

    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.
