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.

Small portions, good but nothing memorable about the food, way overpriced...even for Manhattan.

If there’s ever a place in NYC that lives up to the stereotype of having snooty and clueless front of the house staff, non-knowledgeable bartenders and mediocre food, Scarpetta is it. The concierge got my reservation incorrectly, the bartenders couldn’t tell me what on their wine list would taste like a Reisling, they seated us at the bar entrance (crazy noise level), and when moved to the dinning room, the BAD-ATTITUDE maitre’d actually said to me: “if you don’t like where we seat you, there are options you can take”- basically telling me I should go somewhere else! I’ve been to numerous Michelin restaurants in the world, and never have I encountered a more hostile, rude and just overall poor dining experience. Will NEVER recommend this restaurant to anyone in my network. So sad because i was hoping that my overseas friends who were visiting would have a good NYC dining experience. They were aghast at the service level and crap attitude from the senior wait staff.

The room is lovely and the booth and seating very comfortable. I quickly noticed that the music didn’t seem to match the room. It was an upscale dining room and yet the music was club like. The bread (sourdough) tasted like day old bread. My guests at dinner felt the spaghetti sauce was too oily and both of us who had fish (branzino and halibut) agreed there was too much salt in our dishes. The dessert with the espresso in the glass and the hazel nut ice cream was perfection. We also did get help finding wines by the glass we liked.

We have been to this location before and have also been to the Miami and Hamptons locations. We took my son there tonight to celebrate his 21st Birthday - big occasion and we were quite disappointed., when we arrived we were seated in a table we were not comfortable with asked nicely to move ( there were 20 other empty tables) we were told we could not move - no tables. This is very unusual- we were really surprised that they did not even try to help. Next came the waiter who was not great - did not make us feel welcome-made us feel like we did not order enough- we had a bottle of wine - 2 appetizers- 4 entrees and 3 desserts-never asked us if we wanted cheese, very poor service not attentive- did not make the occasion special and it should have been - not going back -like the food - very unhappy with service.

My friend and I had an amazing brunch experience here. The Good-Life-Brunch is totally worth the money. The service was excellent. The bread was amazing and their classic spaghetti was as perfect as usual. Can’t wait to go back!

Three business friends met for a lovely lunch during restaurant week. Scarpetta did not disappoint. The ambiance was relaxing, the service friendly and efficient. Our food was beautifully presented and delicious. It made for a pleasant and memorable experience.

We tried the restaurant week menu. Did not find the apps and mains that interesting for the price but the dessert, especially the coconut pannacotta was mind blowing. It made up for the no so great mains and entrees. I would go back just for that dessert. It has a fresh tender coconut ice cream, a crispy tuile,the pannacotta and a gauva syrupy base which was so refreshing.

Had a fantastic dinner at Scarpetta. After a little hiccup with an uncomfortable table for our party of three, we were happily moved to a more suitable one. Craig provided excellent, attentive service and we thoroughly enjoyed the delicious agnolotti, bass and perfectly cooked wagyu. The desserts of budino and lemon cake were also lovely.

Very disappointed that the chef would not make a simple substitution. The spaghetti lived up to my expectations and the lamb was a huge success. Noise is a problem for a table of 6. Overall an enjoyable evening.

We tried the restaurant week menu. The polenta made me speechless! Every course was precisely executed — great flavor and great texture. Brad, our server was friendly, attentive and took what was already a good experience and made it great. Scarpetta will be my first choice for any celebration in the future.

The bread service was unimpressive. The truffled polenta was drippy and watered down in flavor. The rest of our meal was good but nothing extraordinary. As for the service, it was inattentive. Conclusion: Scarpetta rests on its laurels from a 10 year old review when it opened and appears to achieve seatings from an old buzz, trendy NoMad location and pretense of fine dining.

Scarpetta, as usual, was fantastic. The food, wine, and service was fantastic. Only thing that was kind of strange was that I was charged for a dish we didn't order, but was brought out "on the house". I felt cheap asking for it to be taken off the bill, so I didn't, which I probably should've. We did eat and enjoy it, so I didn't bother. Nitpicking though - it was an excellent time.

We were early for our reservation...and the host with the phony Italian accent - wouldn’t allow us to take the our table.. which was sitting empty because of some ridiculous made up reason. He finally let us sit. But later the same person wheeled a food cart into my chair and made it seem as if it was my fault.. and did not apologize. Very disappointing. Will not return.
