An Italian expression that means “little shoe” – or the shape bread takes when used to soak up a dish — Scarpetta represents the pure pleasure of savoring a meal down to its very last taste. Amongst many accolades, Scarpetta NYC received a three-star review from The New York Times and a nomination for Best New Restaurant in the country from the James Beard Foundation in 2009.

Great restaurant but we arrived early and instead of seating us in the dining room where there were empty tables they put us in the noisy bar area.

This was the loudest restaurant I have been to in years — and that includes Chuckie Cheese. The food was amazing but that was completely offset by the cramped tables and the noise. Service was so-so.

The host was fantastic and got us right in. He was friendly and accommodating. Food was absolutely amazing as per usual. Got the seared scallops app, and the pappardelle with crab. Both delicious. Food came out quickly but the service was slow. There were about 10 different staff members serving us so we never knew who to order drinks from. It was confusing. Maybe they were just having an off night.

Everything about our dinner was fantastic. We booked an early dinner as we had or 3 & 6 year old grandchildren with us. The wait staff was nothing short of excellent in accommodating them. We had allergies to manage and they did so gracefully. Our food was excellent as was the wine. We will definitely be back.

As always, our experience at Scarpetta was just wonderful. I can’t speak highly enough of the service, they treat us like family every time we visit. And our dinner was amazing, just outstanding and beautiful. We have a special place in our hearts for the Scarpetta family, I can’t count all the wonderful memories they have provided us, we will always go back, hopefully throughout our long lives.

The food was amazing and we love the wine menu which includes great wines by the glass. My only “complaint” is that they do not have daily specials. We have been to the restaurant many times so the menu gets a little stale for us. We’d like to see some variety.

We tried this new location for the first time. It’s great food and the ambiance is better:. It’s more private and much quieter. Don’t miss the spaghetti or the duck/foo gras ravioli.

Staff was very accommodating and available. Ambiance lovely and perfect for both a business meeting at lunch or date or social event in the evening. Food delicious, though just a bit sparse. Drinks reasonably generous and well done. Wine list impressive.

Overall, I had a great experience at Scarpetta. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. My only complaint would be that the service was almost TOO good. I barely had time to finish swallowing my food before my plate was cleared. It made me feel a little rushed.

I've eaten at the Las Vegas Scarpetta's twice and now this one here in NY once. This is definitely the best meal I've had at Scarpetta's and definitely up there as one of my favorite meals ever. The food was over the top delicious. I love the clubby feel of the restaurant. The service was over the top wonderful.

We had a reservation for 9:00PM for five people on a Thursday. Arrived early around 8:30PM and were told we would be likely seated closer to reservation time. Did not get seated until 9:20PM because the party before us had been hogging the table for four hours. The staff finally got them to get up and leave. We were given a free appetizer and free dessert for the delay in seating which was very nice. Food portions were small/pricey but good. Desserts were amazing. Atmosphere was very noisy, very crowded, and clientele were of the stuffy type. Service was good.

We have wanted to go to Scarpetta for a while and finally made it happen on this trip to New York. It was a nice evening with very good service -- when we ordered wine the server suggested we might like something that he felt was a little better and brought us a taste of both and he was right. But the food just did not stand out -- including the spaghetti and tomato basil sauce -- they way we thought it would. It was all good but it was not special. There are so many excellent places at this price point that we ended up being disappointed that it was not one of them.
