Scarpetta is now reopen, offering a new outdoor dining Garden Cafe. Join us for Aperitivo from 4:00pm - 5:30pm nightly for cocktails and Cicchetti bites, as well as for nightly dinner service beginning at 4:00pm.

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.

Lovely time but only gave the ambience 2 stars because we were so cold outside and there were no heat lamps nor covid-friendly blankets! I really hope they get this done soon as I would love to go back.

Other than that food was excellent and I appreciate all their effort in making this work.

I would advise the restaurant to look and see how restaurants/cafes do it in Stockholm, Sweden in the colder months as they make it warm, comfortable and stylish! :o)

It was really good! We were celebrating my birthday. The waiter knew everything about the menu and his recommendations were so good. With COVID we had to be seated on the side walk, but they had music playing inside and you could hear it from your seat. We were able to hear each other talk. The food was amazing and was just the right portion. I know they’re known for their regular spaghetti, but as someone who is a fan of spaghetti.. the lobster with black pasta was better than the regular.

Food was just ok. Didn’t like that we ‘had to’ order our drinks and all food at same time. My Negroni then came out after our appetizers?! Tuna crudo lacked taste and creativity. Octopus was delicious as well as pasta. Service was fair given the high standard and price of it all. Definitely wouldn’t run back.

It's an IT place i guess so it's overly hyped with no reason. Bread basket is the only thing worth going for honestly.

The food and drinks at Scarpetta were excellent! However, there is definitely a learning curve as it pertains to the outdoor seating. While the service was great, there was trouble with the ticket system in the kitchen, causing our food to be incredibly delayed—it was nearly an hour before we received our appetizer. Our drinks were great in the interim, but I wish the bar was just a bit faster—the restaurant was very crowded, so I understood the delay. I also felt very safe dining there, as it was clear the restaurant was following every precaution they could.

So much attention to detail here at Scarpetta. The food was fantastic and the service was great as well. They (thankfully) have plenty of gluten free options which is always a win in my book!
Can’t wait to come again soon.

Disappointing. Nice venue and service is good, but food does not live up to what you would expect for a restaurant at this price point. Was not horrible by any means - it was fine - it’s just that in NYC, you can just get much better food for similar money.

We had a reservation at 9 pm and waited 45 mn before someone was able to sit a party of 4 !
Hostesses were not very charming and seemed very annoyed when we checked a couple of time at their desk
We were waiting in the hotel lobby but no one came to bring us to our table
Music was not so great and way too loud ; service was fine and food delicious

We had an 8:30 reservation and didn’t get seated until 9:30. There were several other tables that stormed out before us for the same issue. The manager’s nonchalant attitude didn’t help diffuse the situation either. If you’re looking for the best Italian in the city where they also appreciate your business, check out L’Artusi or Bar Pitti. Scarpetta is NOT worth the wait.

Everything was good but this is the first time a waiter disclosed about the birthday at the beginning rather than just bringing the birthday dessert quietly so it would be a surprise.
