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, ambience, and drinks were great. Will definitely come back!
Terrible service and the food was cold. Would never go back or recommend.
Host was rude and non welcoming that specific night. Food overall was super good!
Great food.. must try the fried chicken only offered between 4 to 5:30 pm... and the stromboli bread was amazing
Another amazing meal at Scarpetta! I had a really great time with my family and our server was outstanding!
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)
Was really good, waiter was quick and very attentive! I’d go back and will recommend!
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.
Fantastic food (albeit small portions). The staff was friendly and attentive. We asked for a reasonably priced wine recommendation and had a fantastic white !
Birthday dinner for our friend. One
Great like always!
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.
Just meh. Overpriced, mixed up orders, brought someone else’s drinks, rushed.
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.
It was really nice. What a nice job with the outside dining. The staff was super attentive. The fettuccine with crab was fantastic. Loved the drink and the Whispering Angel collaboration was lovely.
Reception is incredibly rude
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.
The food was amazing !! And amazing service
everything about this place was amazing!!
Outdoor dining ... nice break
The place was beautifu, fantastic food..great service
Lovely new outdoor set up! Same gorgeous menu. Go support this restaurant, and its warm and hospitable staff.
I really think you guys have the most fantastic waiters and staff. Everyone was so helpful and lovely which is always my experience here. Thank you and I can’t wait to come back soon!
Delicious food and excellent service.
It was closed! We didn’t get to experience it. You need to stop accepting reservations for places that are not open!!!
What an incredible space and experience! The hospitality and customer service was superb! The food was outrageous and gorgeous! An important NYC institution!
Please make every effort to get here this summer. The “garden” created was magnificent! Thank you Scarpetta for making my 55th Birthday an unforgettable celebration!
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.
Fresh quality lunch.
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
This place is a gem. One of my favorite restaurants in NYC. It has it all, ambiance, great food, classy, a great vibe of its own creation, & not to mention top notch service.
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.
They reached out to be sure we knew that the menu was breakfast not brunch at the time of our reservation. Lovely, quiet atmosphere. Good food. Rest rooms are far away and not handicapped accessible.
Loved every second of our dinner this evening.
Great time, even better food. Smaller sized tables, was my only issue lol
It was very nice, the portions were small considering the price. After our Show we ended up getting Pizza because we were hungry again.
Love Scarpetta, been here many times will be back many more!
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.
Difficult to have a business conversation music was very load. Talked to manager an he stayed he couldn’t do anything about it as it was programmed. The later it gets the louder it will be turned up.
Great food along with exceptional service.
