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.

    This was a great restaurant experience. I’ve been to the one in Vegas but this was more memorable. Service was nice, attentive, and not pretentious. Excellent handmade pastas. The tagliatelle was a standout. I had the zucchini ravioli with anchovy - which was good - but I kept going back to my sister’s tagliatelle 😋. Even the chicken was good. Highly recommend if you are looking for upscale Italian.

    Save your money and go elsewhere! My husband and I dined on a Sunday night. We ordered the cavatelli with oxtail, chicory salad, branzino and veal. We got through all of the courses only to be told at the end that they were out of the veal. It never came out. There we were waiting and then we were handed dessert menus. When we informed the waitress that our veal never came out she quipped, we’re out of it. (Would have been nice to know so that we could order something else instead). Management offered no comp glass of wine, no discount off the bill, no other entre in its place, nothing... nada. Spent way too much for ok quality and poor service. Small portions too. We won’t be heading back anytime soon!

    Food is excellent, but everything else not so much. We were seated 20 minutes after our reservation and quickly put in drinks and food since it was after 9pm. They did not bring enough bread for 3 people, only 2. The waiter noticed and offered to bring more, but forgot 4 times. It was 45 min between appetizer and entrees. Between entrees and dessert, they finally came with 2 bread baskets. The pasta was the wrong order. The waiter was very nice and apologetic about the mixup and long wait for bread, so he kindly brought an extra dessert and a top off of wine. As we were eating dessert, they kept trying to take away the bread baskets we received minutes earlier and asked 3 times if we wanted to box it up. It felt like we were being rushed out of there when we had waited so long for our food. The service was especially bad because they were clearly overwhelmed for Restaurant Week and prioritized larger tables.

    The restaurant is beautiful and has a cozy feel. Prices were reasonable for a high end restaurant in NYC from an acclaimed Chef. The service at the table and in the restaurant in general was wonderful. The layout to use facilities is complicated but everyone was helpful. I would absolutely go back on a heartbeat.

    If this restaurant could only figure out how to have more welcoming hostesses, it would be a top notch place. Every time I have been, whomever is at the host stand (and it is not only one person), acts as if they are entirely annoyed by the fact that someone came to the restaurant and that waking us to the table is some kind of massive inconvenience. It’s really not a good vibe. Once at the table, everything is fine. But horribly chilly and unkind front of house.

    We went the day after Christmas for lunch.. we reserved a table but decided to sit at bar instead.. ordered a delicious bottle of wine- we shared their salad - sooo good. my husband ordered the yellowtail and wanted to order a second! I had the short rib agnolotti… same ; ) Lovely day! Met a cool couple who shared their bottle of wine (so I could taste a Sicilian wine and yes - our bottle got finished)

    This might have been the best meal ever. They served 3 types of bread all fresh . We order a couple cocktails that were very good. We both had the homemade pasta which was the perfect portion and delicious. Then we had a orange moose dessert. Everything was exquisitely presented and had its own twist. So worth it!

    The food was outstanding. My only complaint was that we felt a little rushed. Bus boy wanted to take the food we were still working on, and the waitress was advancing the courses quickly and didn't ask if I wanted more wine, which I did. Slow it down a bit, and everything will be fine. Still highly recommended.

    Had an 8:30 reservation didn’t get seated until 9 & this was the case for every other party as well so a the people waiting to get seated have to awkwardly stand around right next to people dining. Also after waiting 30 min for our table we never got a water & had to flag down a man who appeared to be the manager who took our order himself.

    Food was delicious. Octopus and yellow tail appetizers, lobster pasta and oxtail pasta and halibut dishes were all tasty. And the service was very attentive and top notch. Seats are a little close together and no offer to check our coats but fortunately there was just enough room on the bench to pile them up at the dinner table.

    Let me start by saying I LOVE Scarpetta. I have been many times and I am usually not disappointed. However, this last visit left me underwhelmed. It started when I arrived and had only 3 of my party of 4 and was refused seating. I would understand if I had a table for 8 and had half the party. But I was missing one person who was running late in midtown traffic. Once seated I tried to order a very nice bottle of wine. The so called sommelier shows up and tells me the wine I want is not available. So I order another, that one isn’t available. This goes on for 3 more times! Why even have a printed wine list?? I finally jumped up another 100 per bottle and ended up drinking 2. But really? Food was amazing as always. Don’t ever leave here without the spaghetti. Even if you just get it to share. The steak was perfection. Lastly….and this is a drum roll moment. I got the bill. I place my credit card in the slot and waited for the server to return. She returned with 2 credit cards and a split bill. I am perplexed. Is this a magic trick? I looked at the other card and it didn’t belong to anyone in our party. I tell the server and she tells me there were 2 cards in their when she picked it up. I explain it’s not mine. She comes back with 2 checks I have to sign to make up for their mistake. Now… what if I was a bad person? I could Have accepted the split bill and walked out with someone leaves credit card to go shopping. Of course I am not, but there are bad actors out there. All in all the service was not anywhere near my expectations as a prior guest. Scarpetta is better than this. I am only leaving feedback to hopefully allow them to get it right. I did ask to speak to a manager and a very nice young lady apologized and said they would make it up to me next time I am in town. Not sure how that will work out.. but she was nice and bought me a drink at the bar.
