One of my favorites in Manhattan! Being from Denver, CO...we always stop in for dinner whenever we are in NYC...never have been disappointed!
I had an amazing dining experience while I was there. Josè suggested a fantastic wine, and it was truly superior service. It’s always a treat going to Scarpetta and the new location is even greater than the 8th ave location!
Outstanding from beginning to end. The polenta was creamy and full of flavor. Our fresh pasta dishes were cooked to perfection. The service was 5 star from sommelier to waiter. It was a true dining experience that one would come to expect of a NYC celebrity chef. Great job!!!!
They did a beautiful job of renovating which was once a very odd restaurant space when it was first “Country” , then Millesime. Both restaurants failed miserably due mostly I concluded from my experiences back then to poor management. Scarpetta is known to have top management and stays ahead of the game. Menu has good selections and wine list and wine temperature control appears improved from my last visit when it was in the Meatpacking District. The spaghetti which was recommended was bland and lifeless but the fish dishes my host and I had were very good. The food overall needs to be a little more creative and unique to survive in that specific part of Madison Ave . I have witnessed many restaurants that had even more creative food like Scopa, Devon, Country and Pranna leave the neighborhood. But overall I give Scarpetta 5 stars because the service was excellent, the space was beautiful and the menu has great potential with a little help from a consultant.
best italian place
They were very accommodating for my birthday party. More people arrived than I anticipated and they kindly made room for us. We also were brought downstairs for the fun cocktail lounge! Delicious food and very friendly staff! I also had a party at the old meatpacking location and this NoMad James Hotel space is better. I can’t wait to go back!
Food was very good but service was offputting due to a few reasons. First we sat against the wall in between two other parties of two. Someone who appeared to be the manager was greeting the parties around us even after a turnover but never spoke to us. We believe it might have been because we are people of color while the parties that were greeted were white. Even if it was for another reason, that conduct created an exclusionary and unsettling atmosphere. In addition, when we arrived even though we had a reservation, we were taken to a table by the door when there were plenty of open tables inside in the nicer room. When we asked if we could have a different table, the restaurant indeed accommodated us with a decent table in that room. However it puzzled us why they didn’t offer that table to us initially. We had come from work and were wearing nice clothing so it would not be due to appearance. Lastly near the end of dinner we ordered a glass of wine which the waiter forgot. He quickly brought it to us when we reminded him though.
Good food, good service, cool new spot as well
Heavenly. Manager checked on us three times everything was very well done
Very disappointing. After eating at the 14th St location many times, we were excited to see the new digs. First, we were seated in the noisy bar area, without asking whether it would be OK and without apology. Our table had a banquette, with a crack between cushions in the middle of where one person needed to sit. We asked to be moved to the dining room, which looks much nicer, and we were told “Everyone there is on their entrees, so it will be quite a while.” We located a different banquette ourselves (no help from the staff) and were moved there, still in the bar. Service was very slow, we waited a long time to order drinks and a bottle of wine. The waiter brought the wine eventually, and said “I’ll be right back to explain the menu.” Quite a while later, he returned (when we waved to him) and said “Ready to order?” We insisted on getting the explanation first, and were told that the pastas were “great for sharing.” Not so. One couple ordered a pasta to share and asked whether it could be split in the kitchen. They were told “No but we’ll make it easy for you.” So when the pasta arrived, there was no serving utensil for them to use to serve the food onto the plates they were given. We had to ask for that and wait for it to arrive. Although the food was excellent, the overall experience is nothing like what we have gotten used to, and we are not sure whether we will go back. In the old location, this was one of our favorite places, but it is simply not the same.
Service was great
The food was outstanding, from the creamy polenta to the spaghetti with tomato and basil to my main course which was the halibut. Everything was flawless and the waiter was great and very knowledgeable in all the dishes on the menu. I highly recommend Scarpetta!!!
Food was great. However we had a 9:00 pm reservation on a weeknight. We were on time. We waited over 35 minutes to be seated and then they begrudgingly lowed is to sit at a communal bar table in the bar area. Our table in the restaurant never materialized. No apology, not even a complementary drink.
As a lover of the old Scarpetta, I was super excited to try the new Scarpetta. Additionally, I quite often stay at the James Nomad, the hotel of the new location. This review comes after my fourth visit to the new location.
Service: Front of house service was disorganized, seemingly inexperienced, and borderline rude with the exception of one gentleman. Bar and actual wait staff was excellent.
Food: Stellar. Impressively they have maintained the quality of their signature dishes.
Value: Everything feels about 20% more expensive than you expect, even at a fine dining establishment. Cocktails are in the $18 range, some pastas north of $30.
Overall: Worth trying, food solid, but not worth having as one's go-to.
It was very very disappointing !
The portions are really small and it's not worth the price. You basically pay to people watch, not for the food.
Great food and fantastic service!
Great food but for the price I was expecting better. Service is impeccable and the decor is beautiful. It is a great restaurant and great food so you will not be disappointed but I’ve had better food for cheaper and so it only got the four stars.
Nonetheless, a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Compared to the previous location, there is more space available. Anyway it is still one of the best restaurant in town.
Food is awesome, and the service as well.
We were there for my daughter’s birthday and everything was excellent. The new location is beautiful and food and service perfect.
Loved the new location. Same great experience in a beautiful setting. I especially liked that the dining room is brighter here than in the previous location. Definitely recommend and will return again and again! Gent was great as our server, we appreciated his knowledge and expertise.
I have been to Scarpetta three times now I believe and they recently moved the restaurant to a seemingly smaller place. Food is still very good and the service is good. I would say the only complaint is the tables (like some restaurants tend to be in NYC) are on top of each other if you are a table of 2. I felt like I was having dinner with the dude and his date next to me.
Food was great, atmosphere was great. Portions tiny, 2 appetizers, 1 pasta and 1 fish fish was not enough to be filling for 2 people. Server forgot one of our dishes as well
Excellent, food service and wine list. Wine is very expensive is which was the only negative
The food and service was very good. Will definitely go back to try something else.
Wonderful restaurant. Our favorite Italian restaurant in NY. Great food. Plenty of options for meat eaters and vegetarians. Wonderful service too.
Great food, but very limited vegetarian options.
Food good portions very small. Loud.
The new location is very nice, the food was good but not great and the portions were much smaller, we asked for more bread and they never brought it, salad 1 side and 2 short rib tortalini dinners 1 dessert, 3 drinks total and with tip over 215 and was still hungry.
This places deserves 1 star but I may round up to 2 stars because my server seemed nice but was definitely overworked as he was the only one in the entire front section, ridiculous imo
The maitre d was not the same but I did see him later, the guy with the glasses was terrible & didn't understand a simple request of giving a table in the main dining room even though I requested one after having been placed in a table with a draft of air coming on to me. Odd music and loud ambience of the front room were a big turn off
No vegetarian focacio? All three breads were equally bad 0/5
The prices are higher and the quality is not as good as it used to be
My creamy polenta was not hot but I was too irritated to send it back, I guy asked me two times if I was done? I guess they don't understand silverware etiquette 1/5
the time between when they cleared my first course and the arrival of the second course was long (20 minutes minimum)
The spagetti tasted great and was the best part of the meal 3/5
20 minutes after waiting for desert the waiter comes with the check? Wfh
I said I'm take a chocolate cake to go and booom the check came without a cake or on an apology, it was a waste of time and the irritation was priceless
People were randomly bring seated, getting up and leaving or moving around and there were too many hotel staff loitering around without paying attention to patrons
New York has plenty of great restaurants so I don't need to visit this hotmess & maybe that's why Scott Conant the founder is no longer affiliated with this place!!!
Very underwhelming. I made the reservation at the old location and was never told (even in the two texts and voicemail confirmation that I got) that the location had changed. Fortunately, a friend mentioned an email she got about the move, and I CALLED Scarpetta to confirm the move just a day ahead of my reservation date. Glad I didn’t show up to the wrong location. I used to love Scarpetta for their spaghetti, impeccable service and restaurant week menu and would consider myself a regular. I’ve celebrated birthdays and special occasions there and often recommended the restaurant to others. Not anymore. This time, we had to wait 20 minutes (in an awkward front dining area with no real place to stand without being in someone’s way) more than 20 minutes for a 6:30 reservation. Really? At 6:30? Once finally seated I asked to see the restaurant week menu. Turns out, although Scarpetta WAS on the restaurant week list when I made the reservation, apparently they’d pulled out and weren’t serving restaurant week anymore. The manager offered free dessert as a consolation. It might have worked, except service was awful. At one point our server offered to refill our bread basket and we obliged. 15 minutes and a first course later, still no bread. When he finally came back around, we reminded him - and 15 minutes after that, we got the bread. Also, glad you’re making gluten-free focaccia now, but I want the old bread back. It was much better with gluten. I realize the restaurant is likely going through some moving pains and I sympathize with that. But for now.. I’ll probably choose another restaurant to celebrate, enjoy and recommend. Scarpetta just isn’t it anymore. It’s a bummer, because it was once at the very top of my list.
Waited 25 minutes to be seated for an 8:30pm reservation. There is no real waiting area, so there was a growing crowd at the door. Reception staff not updating us on timing, but selectively chatting and saying hi to friends and ignoring everyone else put a damper on the entire meal for our group. Water glasses remained empty on two occasions for nearly 30 minutes each — absolutely inexcusable. With the exception of the sommelier, the general vibe of the staff, from reception to server to busboy, was that they're doing you a favor. Very annoying, and what a huge shame for a place that I've always loved. When you're charging nearly $30 for basic spaghetti with marinara (which was slightly overcooked), you shouldn't be making such avoidable mistakes.
Spaghetti is as good as it ever was. Budino and octopus is great.
My date and I where there for opening night at the new location in NoMad. We did get seated about 25 mins past our reservation time (we showed up 10 minutes prior to our reservation time) but I attributed the delay to the new location opening. Even though it wasn't a part of restaurant week, the food and drinks were spectacular. Pretty obvious, but highly recommend the famous spaghetti; a simple yet delicious. Also highly recommend the chocolate dessert cake. Overall, great venue for a date.
We have been to this location and the Las Vegas Location before and it is always a fabulous experience. We especially love the mushroom polenta appetizer. This time I had the best mezzaluna, which was fantastic- a completed unique dish! We eat at the restaurant whenever we visit New York.
Delicious homemade pasta and relaxing, chic atmosphere.
The food was very good, but the service was odd. Too attentive at times and forgetful at other times.
The menu was explained in an exhaustive way that felt patronizing. But then, our wine was slow to arrive.
And, were definitely rushed to place our orders and to finish promptly.
Second time in a month. Once before the holidays, once after. Enzo is the best. The three of us shared appetizers and a double pasta second course. Awesome!
Each had a different entree and no complaints. Fish entrees were creative as was a perfectly cooked lamb dish.
Enzo adds a bit of “old school” ( which is great ) to a great vibe!
Only downside ( if you call it one ) is that the music was way loud adding to a noisy room. Turning it dow just a bit won’t hurt the energy of the place!!!
Amazing food; plates are somewhat small so I recommend an appetizer and or dessert. The chocolate cake is one of the best I’ve ever had. They’re known for their spaghetti (it’s incredible) and we also had the short ribs pasta, which I was very impressed by. Will absolutely go again. Service was attentive and very kind.
Food was outstanding. Service was impeccable - better than anywhere else since Le Bernardin. One minor objection is the power wine list. Not enough middling priced bottles.
