Scaletta is a type of restaurant that is sadly becoming a rarity in NYC. It combines good food with a quiet, comfortable ambiance where you can actually converse with your dinner guests. The food is well prepared but don't expect cutting edge innovation. The service is the weakest point. While friendly and well-meaning, it seems overly chaotic with seemingly every server having a hand in serving every table. All in all though, they get the job done and we regularly dine here. Note: no grade inflation here, 5 stars are few and far between from me.

We have been here several times. The food is great. In fact, we enjoyed leftovers the following day wishing we saved more from the night before. The service this time was lacking. Waited for our entres and then nearly had to tackle someone to get the bill. We were not given attention.

That will not dissuade me from coming again. Also, they discontinue the cream cones. I was looking forward to that all day! Better luck next time.

Not enough waiters for all of the reservations. Our waiter too old to keep up with the crowd and not understandable. Food neither hot nor tasty.

Still amazing after all these years! Fine food and wine, professional service, and that rarest of NY commodities: a restaurant quiet enough to make conversation not just possible but a pleasure!

We were welcomed with the message that the kitchen was closed despite the fact that they have recieved notice of and were aware of that we had reserved a table at 8.00 pm. In line with that and due to no excuse other that the guy in charge had forgotten to take any action we have difficult to recommend this place to anyone.

Despite having a reservation and coming 10 minutes early, it took 45 minutes to be seated. Then the service was so bad, the poor hostess had to hustle around to cover for the waiter.

This is a traditional Italian restaurant with real table clothes and napkins and little bread plates. It has a retro feeling along with very good food. Try it!

Friendly service, good food and tables far enough apart so that diners can hear each other talk.

This is an old-timers neighborhood restaurant outstanding for its genteel ambiance and low noise level. These make up for the somewhat clumsy and not exactly gracious wait staff. The food while uninspired is good in a down to earth way. It's a great place to go for a hearty meal and for being able to carry on a conversation without having to raise your voice.
