Great neighborhood privately owned authentic italian restaraunt. At a time of covid and all the craziness Scalzotto has managed to put in place all the required health and safety measures without negatively affecting the dining experience. The quality of food and value is fantastic. I highly recommend if you want an all around nice experience with authentic chef prepared italian cuisine at a fair price.

Service was great. Most of the food was wonderful. The lasagna was not up to the usual standard. The flavor was good but it was dried out.

A bit pricey, sides are all extra charge. Side salad was pricey for the amount of lettuce on the plate.

The lasanga was made with alot of pasta and not alot of meat. The mushroom ravioli was a better choice. We sat outside and it was comfortable. We did have to ask to have our water glasses filled 3 times

This was an amazing experience from start to finish. I have been on the hunt for an authentic Italian pasta restaurant that had a fine dine flare. There are plenty of "Italian" restaurants out there but not many handcraft their dishes like Scalzotto. In all honesty, I should have stopped with the outstanding Fettuccine Alfredo with Mushrooms but couldn't resist getting the Four Cheese Gnocchi and Mushroom Ravioli as "side dishes" so that I could try it all. My friend got the Pear Ravioli and I know what you're thinking- "pear in a pasta dish?" But no, it was EXCEPTIONAL. I couldn't get over the balance of the sweet but savory texture and taste that occured with each bite. So, the only solution was simply to have another bite.
Our waiter was phenomenal. I wish I could remember his name but he was from Italy and he was so kind, helpful, and fun. Service is half the experience and he exceeded his end of the deal. I honestly can't wait to go back.
Simply put, we need more restaurants like Scalzotto that take the time and effort to hand make their dishes, like the pastas they serve.

I love this authentic, little Italian place! Many choices and great prices! The owners are working there and sometimes he pulls out his accordion to song Italian songs. Definitely should make reservations because this place can fill up. They have nice outdoor seating. Not a quick bite but a great atmosphere and culinary experience!

Loved eating outside. Just wish the one loud car would have stopped “drag racing” up and down 1st ave! Food was delicious as always and it was nice to get out of the house! Felt very safe with the tables situated as they were

Everything was fresh and delicious. We had an appetizer of caprese w/burrata followed by two pasta dishes. The pasta was light and had great texture - not at all thick and pasty. The sauces on both were excellent. Portions are generous and I had every intention of taking some of mine home. But it was so good I couldn’t stop eating! Can’t wait to go back. Nice ambiance and great service. Dinner for two (appetizer, wine, entrees and cappuccino/espresso) was less than $100 including tax and tip. Next time I plan to save room for dessert!

We had reservations and were told they weren’t showing which was fine we were seated anyway outside although we requested inside on reservation. Upon arriving to the table the glasses were flipped up therefore allowing debris into the glass that they proceeded to pour the water into. We ordered wine and still the glasses turned right side up were used (very unprofessional to me). Additionally we ordered a sparkling water and never received it. When we ordered dessert and the waiter brought the spoon to us she placed it just on the table instead of handing it to us or having it wrapped. The food was good however we weren’t told about any of the specials, we happened to over hear them being told by a separate waiter. I would go again but with hopes of a different waiter.

We dine here often, but on Father's Day the food wasn't quite up to their usual quality. It was still good, not fabulous like it usually is.

This restaurant was a nicer find. Bread is awesome-thought if biscotti when it came to the table as the crust was so crispy. Sat outside and it was quiet although all the tables were occupied. I had the Bolognese and after my husband tasted it he informed me he was eating my leftovers. He had spaghetti and Italian sausage and really liked it. Prices are very fair. I will be going here again for sure!!
