Never disappoints with the quality and flavors of food. One of the best wine list in South Florida and a sommelier that knows his way around it.

Scarpetta is an energetic, highly stylized environment enhanced by a top notch staff of service professionals. Of course, it’s location in the Fontainebleau Hotel sets it apart from any other Miami Beach Italian restaurant. Cocktails are made and served with diligence. Our food consisted of a Frito Misto that was one of the best I’ve ever had outside Italy. Chunks of fish, calamari and zucchini lightly fried and served hot with a delicate sauce. Perfect! For main courses, we had pasta dishes, a special oxtail ragu, and the other a lobster with saffron from the menu. The tagliatelle pasta was cooked perfectly, but we assessed the overall quality, main components of the dishes, flavor, etc. to be unremarkable more consistent with what one would expect in a trattoria. The main ingredient in each pasta dish was stingy. It was good, just not notable. For dessert we shared a lemon tart that had a brûlée topping that really set it apart; it was delicious. We would go back again for the fun time we had, probably opting to share a pasta dish as a first or second course, followed by other main courses such as fish or chicken. Kudos to the staff for their kind attention.

Great food, cool vibe, and creative cocktail menu. Our server was excellent and patient with us as we navigated the menu. Loved the Sinatra connection and history of the venue. Started with the "Sorrento" cocktail and enjoyed a scallop dish and tender ravioli as appetizers. Fresh pasta and nice presentation!

Food is great. I really don’t understand if 4 our 5 people are there why won’t they seat you. They do the same thing in NYC, makes no sense and it delays the whole dinner.
Other than that, can’t go wrong with Scarpetta. The polenta and the pasta is mind blowing.

There isn’t a gluten free menu, but they have gluten free dinner rolls and one homemade gluten free pasta each day. The server was very knowledgeable about how to adapt the menu for a person who is gluten free.

The food was very good and the prices were less than expected. Wine list seemed expensive but they recommended a very good moderately priced wine for dinner.

I waited a while for everything . After finally getting my pasta dishes, I waited 15 minutes for the waiter to come over . He asked "how was everything" I replied " we are not done eating, didn't even start, waiting for the Parmesan cheese" I just wasnt happy with the service , the drink and the food.

I have been here before and when I ended up in Miami on my birthday, decided this is where I wanted to celebrate. Unbelievable food! My husband and I split the black truffle pasta with butter and Parmesan cheese, topped with fresh shaved truffles and and creamy truffle sauce. Definitely one of the best and might I add most expensive things I have ever eaten. We decided instead of entrees to order several appetizers. The creamy polenta was amazing, Mediterranean octopus cooked perfectly with olives and potatoes that added a nice salty punch. The tuna crudo was good but not my favorite and the burrata was delicious. Service was great and they quietly (no singing) brought my dessert out with a candle and happy birthday written on the plate. Definitely a must go to restaurant. Pricey, but worth it!

Was so disappointed in Scarpetta. The food was really not edible. We all ordered the tuna tartare, it literally was just tuna, no spice or flavor to it. Then the meals... pumpkin ravioli, completely over cooked, very mushy and a very bad taste, octopus, couldn’t chew it, braised short rib over noodles, was fair but pasta was over cooked. Service was poor, we were in the back and there was only 1 waiter. Interesting group of people at Scarpetta, mostly couples, fun to see what people were wearing. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Fantastic meal with great service, even during the winter holiday crowds. The menu specials were our favorite courses, in particular the black truffle pasta. Very generous blanket of actual truffles rather than truffle oil on this course.

Simply outstanding from beginning to end. From the professional waitstaff to the presentation of the meal, this is hands down one of the finest Italian restaurants I have eaten at in America. The plating is creative and the taste combinations dance across your tastebuds. The chef’s tasting menu gives a range of his talents and they are quite impressive.
The staff was more than accommodating and everything is made to order. Well worth the experience if you are in the Miami Beach area.

We booked a table for 930pm and arrived at 920 .To be asked to wait at the doorway until our table was ready .We did so for twenty minutes with quite a lot of other disruntled clients who stood up too.We decided to walk into the the bar area and waited until 10pm to be seated .We received no apology or explanation as to why we were seated so late on having booked beforehand .This was our first night at the Fontainebleau and it was a theme that continued throughout our stay .The service seemed substandard for what is classed as a highly rated hotel .Chaos is probably the correct words to choose sadly .

Scarpetta is one of our fav’s! Whether in NYC or Vegas too. Would have given 5 stars but the bar AC was blowing right on most seats. We ate at the bar but were frozen. Even those just there for drinks were uncomfortable. Just needs some adjusting!

Atmosphere was nice but the food was overrated. It's not as great as it's hyped up to be. I had yellowtail crudo, spaghetti, branzino and although it was good, it wasn't what I was expecting from this renowned restaurant.

Go for the food. First the bad: we wanted to sit outside and called ahead to inquire and were seated on the terrace...which is fully enclosed (it appears that large windows can be opened but they were not on this occasion). The regular dining room was richly appointed ; the terrace reminded me of eating at an Appleby's or some other inelegant establishment: bright lights, LOT's of kids and babies, etc (and admittedly we were there at 6:30 as nothing else was available). I wish the lights were dimmed and windows opened (the weather was fine).
The wait staff was rushed and uninspired; nothing bad but nothing notable.
The food is consistently good and is THE reason to go.
Recommended dishes include the polenta with mushrooms; short rib ravioli; and spaghetti with tomato-basil sauce. Consider getting it "to go."
Sommelier was great, btw.

We went there for Christmass eve and everything was perfect! We ate the burrata for starter, then the foi grass ravioli and pici pasta and all the dishes were excellent. The service is amazing. We ordered a wine that was out of stock and so they offered a new and better one for the same price. Even though the restaurant closes at 11, they let us stay until 12:30. Everyone was really friendly and polite. I will definitely return!
