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).

    This restaurant may have a good atmosphere but only for club settings. Although we were on time (even 15mins early) for my wife's birthday dinner reservation they were still 15mins late in seating us .The music was so loud we could hardly hear our server throughout the entire night but she did a great job. Seating was very tight, with insufficient lighting...definitely not the best for a romantic celebration dinner.

    Scarpetta was a great date night! We were seated right between a few big parties, so our server got pretty busy and we had to wait a little longer than we like, but we weren't in a hurry, so it was ok. Other than the wait, service was great! I had heard rave reviews of the spaghetti, so I ordered it. It was good, but not as good as the reviews. Probably won't order that again. My boyfriend got the steak on the Spice Menu and it was perfect! Polenta was phenomenal! Beautiful ambiance, but the music was way too loud. We could barely hear the waiter or each other speaking across the table. Be prepared to spend some money! Overall, great experience though and we will be back.

    We went out with friends on a Friday night and were disappointed. The food was good, but nothing outstanding, except , maybe, for the Panna cotta desert. The portions are small and the service not too good. Not worth the money. I had to apologize to our friends for picking this place.

    Early dinner 6:00 pm Thursday so it was pretty quiet. Food was delicious but rich. Short rib appetizer, fried mozzarella balls, spaghetti, chicken entree. We've had the spaghetti at the Vegas Scarpetta location, and it was very similar. I wouldn't return again unless I was in the mood for rich food. Service was simply outstanding. Other reviews stated that you're well taken care of, and we concur whole-heartedly! We don't drink alcohol, so the tab wasn't bad at all.

    The polenta, the service, and the ambiance were the best aspects about the restaurant. The service was top notch. Our waiter was great. He knew about everything on the menu...how they cook it, how they prepare it...everything. Always asked if we were good with everything. The polenta was amazing. The main course was a bit disappointing. I ordered the baked chicken ($28), nothing to die for. My wife ordered the snapper. It was nothing to write home about either. Definitely not worth the $33. I ended up spending $150 in total, without dessert and the %18 tip included. The worst part of the night was that we waited 45 minutes for valet to bring our car. It pretty much ruined a very nice time. We wont be returning any time soon.

    I was interested in trying out Scarpettas but waited until Miami Spice to manage the risk of another overpriced, barely adequate Miami restaurant. I failed. Three people, all on Spice menus got ambushed with extras. 3 times $39.99 should not have added up to almost $450! I was shocked. There are many, many better restaurants the cost less. Examples: $15 Mohitos; $12 for a "side" or mouthful of pedestrian spagetti, $8 for a cappuccino and $85 for a bottle of OK prosecco. Everyone was very nice, but it was load and unreasonably pricey.

    Food was great but service was annoying. Too many waiters that paid way too much attention to you but were woefully unaware of what was going on. I was asked too many times if I was finished - the answer is always no I am still working. That happened 8 times. Wouldn't come back for that reason.

    Everything was exceptionally delicious; the mozzarella en carozza was wonderful but the pasta was the best I've ever eaten. Not only was the tomato basil sauce perfect (I make my own and hate to admit that Conant's is better!) but the flavor and the texture of the pasta was fantastic. Their wine list offers a broad selection of wines and prices. All told Scarpetta is a delight. We will return often. For those that choose to, the Miami Spice menu is a very nice one and probably an excellent introduction to Scarpetta at an affordable price.

    I had heard about Scarpetta for a long time before actually dining there. I had never seem pictures of the restaurants or food. My friend and I decided to go there during Miami spice. This means we can eat a three course meal without overspending. First the place is beautiful, and the view from the restaurant is water and the resort. Our meal was incredible . We had the polenta with fresh bread and tuna. We also shared had the snapper and butternut ravioli . All these dishes were melting in my mouth. Dessert was nothing special. I did enjoy the wine flight which went well with meal. Here is my disappointment. We had barely finished our course and the waiter wanted to clear the table. The waiter tried to sell us more than we ordered.

    I made a reservation for a nice/romantic dinner with my boyfriend, but it was completely the oposite. Food was good up to the appetizer, but the rest of the foods tasted like........ The Restaurant decor was very nice and enjoyable. It was the worst expensive restaurant I've ever been to and I will make sure that I never step foot in there again and I would not let people I know go waste their money in that restaurant.

We had the Waygu, which was the most enjoyable piece of beef I've ever had, the Orata, which was cooked perfectly, and the as an appetizer we had the Polenta and Short Ribs. I could not believe how creamy and light the Polenta was!

    I don't typically write much, but the food was delish...service was lacking on a couple points but they get bonus points when I showed up quite late to meet friends. They ordered & I arrived 15-20 min after they ordered. I ordered and all of our food was out at the same time within 5 min. In fact my food came before my drink, which normally would upset me but I was hungry! Thanks for feeding me that yummy ravioli!!

    I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. I never miss a chance to come here when I am in Miami Beach. I can honestly say that I have had the best meal in my lifetime at this restaurant. The flavor of the food is incredible. What amazes me is the fact that when I return it seems that the food is even better than I remember it. Scarpetta is not the lowest priced restaurant in town, but in my opinion it is the best.

    Went to Scarpetta while vacationing in Miami Beach celebrating our wedding anniversary. Service was outstanding. Attentive but not intrusive. Octopus appetizer was amazing. A robust wine list with some very reasonable selections to a outrageous vintages. They did a nice little dessert platter with an anniversary message for us. I recommend the pistachio soufflé for dessert. Be warned, Scarpetta is pricey, but it is definitely worth it if you are looking for a four star dining experience.

Waited 15 min to our server, and then another 10 min to our new server; took order like I was in fast food place; drinks came after food (he didn't even apologies for this or at least make a joke about it...just dropped it and left); no questions "how is everything?" during our meal; forgetting picked up appetizers silverware before and not when I'm having second course; after all I spent with my friend 150$ (it supposed to be 180$ but the manager removed our second drinks) and the funny thing our server become more polite after manager talked to him...

    Celebrated our anniversary here and had a wonderful time. My favorite dish was the duck ravioli, a perfect blend of sweet and savory for any pasta lover. The Scallops were our least favorite, just not memorable. They made an effort to congratulate us on our anniversary and even wrote happy anniversary on our dessert dish. This place is great for foodies!! Would definitely go again to taste the rest of the menu!

    We vacation at the Fontainebleau every August and always save Scarpetta for our final dinner on the evening prior to our departure. When I made the reservation I inquired if our regular server, Luis Molina, was available and requested to be seated in his station. I was assured that this would be possible. Prior to our meal, I stopped by the restaurant to confirm that Luis would, indeed, be our server. I was again assured that my request would be honored. Not only was Mr. Molina not working, but the server in his stead seemed nervous and unsure of himself.
