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.

First time for dinner at the new location. The bar area is a bit larger as well as the dining area. The staff was very attentive and didn’t rush us. The spaghetti was to die for as usual.

I frequent Scarpetta and this experience was awful. Very poor service from the wait staff to the management. I was told I could not change my order after they had informed me what I had originally ordered was not available. The noise level was a 10 and when my party politely asked to move rooms, we were met with resistant and eye rolling.

Service was good, almost too attentive - to the point of all the support staff disturbing us every 10 mins.

My fish was undercooked and disgusting and slimy - I was too embarrassed to make a scene and send it back. Should never have come out like that.

First and last time at Scarpetta. More of a tourist place than a real NYC dining experience.

My friends and I went for Restaurant Week and fell head over heels for the risotto. Everything was lovely and delicious and the service is stellar. After dinner we sat around for a few hours with a couple drinks and not once did we feel we were being rushed out. Fantastic time!!!

Been wanting to go here for quite some time. The food was delicious and our server Craig was great. It was restaurant week, but we got food off the reg menu. My BF had the short rib app and I had the creamy polenta they were both delicious. Definitely will be going back. Great cocktails too

It was just Okay. We went there for NYC Restaurant Week so I understand that the menu was pre fixed, but we were not served anything in substitution of biscotti that was on the menu, because one person in our group was allergic to nuts. They didn’t explain that they are not going to be able to serve us anything for substitution (I could be happier if they explained it to us). Also they didn’t give me a spoon for Greek yogurt. Lol... Those are small things that should be better if this restaurant is a “good” restaurant in my opinion.

We go here often and the food is consistently great. Especially love the signature spaghetti, delectable polenta, tasty very fresh halibut, varieties of breads, cauliflower, the luscious chocolate dessert , not to mention their excellent selections of wines.
The service is very attentive and Jose Luis is the most hospitable of managers, always making his guests feel really welcomed and appreciated.

Very happy with our first visit to this neighborhood spot. The Waygu beef and black cod were incredible. Only downside was the yellowtail was sliced very thin and not enough for the price. Service was excellent. And so was dessert. 👍🏻👍🏻

We needed to track down our server to order glasses of wine, and it was far too noisy for a table of five to converse together.

Have been coming to Scarpetta for years. This was my first time at the new location which was beautiful! However food and service is not what it once was. They forgot to deliver bread so we had to ask after receiving our appetizer which seemed to stir confusion. The spaghetti which was always a favorite dish of mine, was lacking in its fragrant flavor and the spaghetti was beyond overcooked. Both the polenta and chocolate cake were still delicious. The real ice breaker was upon leaving the restaurant, my boyfriend checked his bag. They brought out 3 bags before finally delivering the correct one. We were given a specific bag check ticket which was clearly not used. He responds “that’s the one” and she replies “no problem”! Shocked by the lack of apology and awareness.

Great food and value for restaurant week. We all tried the flourless chocolate cake and was phenomenal! All our single glass wines were delicious! The bread basket was so fresh we asked for a second one. Bronzino cooked to perfection. The service was top notch!!

Went to Scarpetta for Restaurant week. My dinner companion & I had the cauliflower romanesco & creamy polenta to start, and the spaghetti & Branzino for our entree, all was exceptional! Very flavorful and prepared well. Would recommend all since my friend and I basically shared everything. Desert was excellent as well. We had the chocolate cake & coconut panna cotta, again delish! Would absolutely go back even without the help of RW prices! Well done!!!

Food was pretty good, however you can taste the sodium in the dishes. Service was okay, you can tell they were well trained and polite. However, it took us a while to flag down someone when we needed help, and they were constantly checking up on us (which is normally a good thing), which made it a little overbearing and interrupted our conversation a few times.

Great food, and great service! Everything from the starting bread basket (which was delicious and included a cheese and salami melt) to the branzino was delicious, and our server was attentive but not over bearing, and provided great wine pairings.

We needed a quick meal before NYC theatre and decided Scarpetta would fit the bill as it is in The James Nee York hotel. Usually not a big fan of hotel restaurants. What a very nice surprise. First, the interior is nothing like the normal interior of a hotel restaurant. This place is first rate in the interior. Second, the service was top notch as the staff has been trained to help each other in the service of tables. The water was never too empty, yet they were also not intrusive if you are having a conversation. Chicken dish and spaghetti were ordered and both were served hot and on time. The spaghetti was served in a way I have only seen in Italy, sort of wrapped in a mound. It reserves the heat.

For dessert it was the olive oil cake and coffee. Both excellent.

Recommend it as we value great food and great service. Thanks for the nice surprise.
