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.

Best service I’ve ever received. Truly want to make sure their customers happy. Had a minor mistake and they went above and beyond to make us forgot that happened. Look forward to returning and recommend highly.

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 took friends from out of town here for dinner. We all had a great time and the food was great, as expected. This was the first time I visited the new location and it was great. I would highly recommend.

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.

One of the most tastiest meals! Great service! Had the yellowtail for appetizer was so good. Had the short rib agnolotti, I forced myself to eat slowly so each taste was savored. Cant wait to go back!!

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.

A table next to the entrance of the toilets, poor service and moderate food quality. Not worth going back.

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.

This was a perfect experience in every way. From the bartender who served us first (we arrived just as the restaurant was opening) to recommendations by our server to the AMAZING food itself, we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. My only wish is that I lived closer so my husband and I could go more often. Thank you Scarpwtta for a wonderful time!
