We are regular guests and go for the food, but also like the setting.

Very good ambience. Food is not highly spiced and taste is natural.
The noise level is excellent for having friendly conversation and the prices for food are good.
drinks may be a little overpriced.

For a supposedly upscale restaurant, the service was terrible. We were ignored for a long while and then after finally ordering, we were asked several times (once by our own waiter) to order. Even then after several requests to hurry things up, it took about an hour(!!!) for the food to come out. Others around us got served before we did even though they came after us, but were served by another waiter for the most part.
Also, entrance steps are treacherous for anyone with any disability.
Dinner and dessert tasted OK at least.
The restaurant needs a lot of management attention to fix up. The cooking, at least, is OK.

Food was decent - not bad but not great. Restaurant is very spacious and comfortable - they don't cram a bunch of tables in there so you feel like you are in top of your neighbor. For that reason the acoustics are quite good and very quiet & spacious compared to most nyc restaurants. The service was extremely slow, we had to keep flagging down our server to get him to do anything. Nice and polite, just not attentive at all. They are definitely pricier than they can get away with. $28 for spaghetti bolognese made of boxed pasta - not even fresh pasta - give me a break! I will say the lasagna was excellent.

A wonderful restaurant, quiet with attentive service and a very comfortable space for conversation. Food was excellent. On the expensive side but worth it.

Food and service were both uninspired. Ordered shrimp scampi which is a very basic Italian dish. I did not recognize what I was given as it did not resemble or taste like shrimp scampi except that it had shrimp. Starter salad was completely boring - literally lettuce on a plate with some dressing drizzled on it. Waiters seemed annoyed.

As usual, Scaletta was wonderful!
I love their Funghi e cariofi appetizer and Lasagna.
Highly recommended!
