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.

Food was very good..
Service was very disappointing..😡
They could have cared less that our party was there to join them for dinner. As a regular at the location on 14th St. This restaurant now seems to have the hotel/ tourist vibe.
Won’t be running back..

Our first visit to this new location in Manhattan. We have enjoyed Scarpetta many times in Montauk. A close friend presented us with a gift for our wedding, but after unsuccessful attempt to use in Montauk we decided to try Manhattan location.
The menu in both locations reads exactly the same, but the preparations were not exactly the same. Although very good, and our group enjoyed, my preference is for the Montauk location. Could be the ocean air that makes everything taste better!
When we arrived the hostess wanted to seat us in the bar area for which my husband was not happy and asked to be located in the main dining room. We may have appeared to be not part of the " IT" crowd but if she were a seasoned hostess she might have realized we were not a " bar crowd" group this evening, attired in suits and ties on a Sunday. It was a grey, rainy evening and the main dining room was quite cool, uncomfortably so. The maitre'D offered to check my coat and umbrellas, which the hostesses did not. Inexperience...?
Nonetheless, everyone enjoyed their meal and a lovely evening. Wait staff was terrific and accommodating .

Our server was wonderful, had a good sense of humor and and gave great recommendations of what to order. It was my birthday so he also comped my and my guests after dinner drinks. The tagliolini and agnolotti were delicious and the espresso budino for dessert was to die for! Overall had a great time and we will be back.

My daughter and I had dinner here on a recent Friday night. We had 5:30 reservations and were seated on time. The bar area was already filling up with the after-work crowd. Everyone was very pleasant, from our server to our bussers, and everyone in between. Pasta is delicious! Looking forward to going back soon.

They must have lost their recipe box when they moved. I previously visited the 14th street location many times and had very good experiences. I would dream of their spaghetti at the 14th street location. This was my first time at the new Madison Ave. location and I was very disappointed. I might as well have been eating at an entirely different restaurant. Same menu, different tasting food. The bread basket was my favorite part of the meal. The Creamy Polenta tasted very different from how it used to taste, and had no taste of truffles at all. The spaghetti was a huge disappointment. This was not the spaghetti that I had eaten so many times at their 14th street location. This spaghetti was overcooked, the sauce texture was watery and the taste was very bland. Very sad, because this used to be one of my favorite restaurants.

1st visit to this Scarpetta, the new midtown location is amazing. The food as every other time we have dined at a Scarpetta was impeccable. Wait staff were top notch. The interior was a tremendous upgrade from the previous location in Manhattan.
didnt spend any time in the bar but seemed happening on a Tuesday night.
Will be back in a few months for some amazing Italian.

We had friends in from Singapore. One of which was visiting NYC for the first time. The atmosphere and food were both great. The Maitre D went out of his way to make us feel special including personally walking us downstairs after dinner to Sevilla lounge. I live close by and will be back. I also write a restaurant review part time and will give very strong marks for Scarpetta.

Simply put: if you must go, go for the scene, not the food. There are plenty of far better italian options in the city, both pretentious and nonpretentious.

The meal kicked off to a great start as soon as the bread was brought out to the table. They have a wonderful selection of foccacia rolls and bread stuffed with ham/cheese. For pasta we had the classic spaghetti and black tagliolini. They were to die for! The pasta was perfectly al dente, yet still melted in your mouth. The sauces were flavorful. Absolutely delicious. We also had brasied short ribs and octopus dishes as appetizers. They were really good, but not amazing. For our main course, we had the veal tenderloin, cooked medium +. The meat was exquisitely presented and the flavor were paired to perfection. I definitely recommend this dish. The service was superb. Our waiter was excellent and attended to our needs. I definitely recommend Scarpetta!

It started off on a bad food - we had a table at 7PM and we got there at 6.50PM and, as expected, the table was not ready yet. But a wait of over 30 minutes when we had a reservation was crazy - we didn’t get seated until past 7.20! The food was very good and it was great to receive a basket of delicious bread shortly after we placed our order. The breads they brought were all very tasty: Stromboli bread stuffed with cheese and salame (amazing!), focaccia (both regular and gluten free), and ciabatta. After going through 3 baskets of bread due to extremely long wait (about 30 minutes) we received our appetizer - the polenta with mushrooms - which was okay. Then another hour (!!) went by before we got our entrees. Yes, they tasted good but I was about to leave due to the long wait. We asked for the check right away and waited over 15 minutes for it because the waiter wanted to surprise us with a free dessert (which btw he ended up including in our check - I thought this was a joke)! Don’t mind me, the espresso pudding was delicious, but really? Bring me a dessert I didn’t order and ask me to pay for it?! All in all I would go back but voice my concerns about the long wait time and poor service ahead of time!

We had a wonderful time at Scarpetta today. Everything from the initial greeting and seating​ to the food, to the friendliness and professionalism of the team,​ was fantastic.

We opted for the prix fixe lunch menu, I had the Creamy Polenta followed by the Branzino, while my husband had the Raw Yellowtail followed by the Cavatelli. All the dishes were excellent, very high quality, and cooked (or not cooked in the case of the yellowtail) to perfection - I would single out the Creamy Polenta as outstanding and would come back for that dish alone!

What a wonderful dining​g experience with a great team, we will be back again soon.

The new location is beautiful. The food was delicious and service was on point. The spaghetti which I remember years ago being on of the best I'd ever tasted was what I was looking forward to. This time, however, although the dish tasted fresh, there was a lack of flavor I wasn't anticipating. I was blown away the first time I had it. Great experience overall.

What a tremendous disappointment! I have been to Scarpetta in Philly and had a wonderful experience! I booked today for my sons graduation celebration and couldn’t be more disappointed!!! We ordered a very nice magnum of prosecco which was not cold and couldn’t be served til 40 mins later. Menu was very limited... ex two salads to choose from and they were out of one!! The food from appetizers to main courses were cold and ok at best! The waiter was kind and apologetic, but truly not his fault. He did apologize for the warm prosecco since it was in the wine refrigerator.... wth smh $650 later it was a lesson learned not to come back again! Oh well... not the last supper!!! Save your money and flip past SCARPETTA NYC 👎👎👎
