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.

Everything was absolutely amazing. It is our go to spot in NYC when visiting. Can’t wait to come back. You absolutely must try the yellowtail appetizer it’s the best we’ve ever had. And my wife loved the house spaghetti
Made reservation for outside and only offered inside.
Delicious food & cocktails and attentive service....definitely going back!
Great food! Did have to wait 15 min and small portions but overall a great date. Will go back.
I haven’t stopped talking about the food! My boyfriend and I got an appetizer and three entrees to share, it was the perfect amount of food and we enjoyed every single bite! I love that we were able to try various dishes on the menu and cannot wait to go back for more!
Great food. Nice outdoor dining. Staff very attentive
Always love my experience at Scarpetta. Food, service, ambiance are always fabulous.
Best spaghetti I ever had.
Very accommodating and felt very safe during COVID. Outdoor dining area was very cute and cozy. Waiter was excellent.
We loved everything. The only thing we weren’t crazy about was the crudo.
Great Service. Our waiter was amazing!
Always a terrific experience at Scarpetta, and they continue to ensure it is so with their safety precautions and outdoor dining setup.
came here for a birthday. we were seated down in the basement around the corner from the bathrooms inside what looked like a conference room turned into dining room with 4 other parties. it took about 20minutes after being seated to put down our drink order. we finally received our drinks at the 30min of being seated and then was able to order meals. 20minutes later after sipping our drinks and receiving a bread basket, a staff member informed us that a guest from the night before contracted Covid and they were closing down the kitchen and restaurant since a staff member might have also been affected. understand we are living in a pandemic but the overall experience was awful.
Food was not exciting and I’ve been everywhere
Long drink list but minimal food menu
At 8 pm there was a ridiculous scenario. Lights were turned on, they were asking people to leave and I asked the manager what was happening he just looked at me and walked away. Extremely bizarre situation.
Overhyped and not worth it at all.
Food was great. Server was on point.
Excellent. Great date night spot! The food is exquisite!
Beautiful venue with excellent food and service.
It had great music and food.
The team was so great - gave us honest recommendations, brought out food quickly and thoughtfully decorated our dessert to help us celebrate our one month wedding anniversary! They also gave us complimentary limoncello - what a surprisingg treat!
Fantastic job reopening with the social distancing and outdoor heated seating combined with limited indoor dining. Service was phenomenal per usual and the food saves your soul during these times. Fritto Misto is one of my go to's alongside their fantastic vino selection. A true neighborhood gem - I will be back!
We were forced to wait standing in the rain 45 minutes past our reservation time. It was miserable and I would not return. The staff was rude and snobby. No thanks!
The beet salad and halibut were excellent!
Food was outstanding. Service was speedy but the waiter was surprisingly inattentive - never asked once how we were doing once our food arrived / never asked if we needed another drink. He only was focused on us when it was time for him to give us the bill; at that point he was all over us. That was a big turnoff for what was otherwise a fantastic meal.
Great food. Pretty outdoor setup. Our server’s name was Nestor— he was the best- made our dining experience that much better!
Great service. Love the complimentary bread! So delicious and fresh!!
Excellent waiter .. very accommodating..
Great place but the food quality and menu options are not that great.
Everything was great! The outdoor decor is gorgeous!
Great outdoor area and superb service. Mushroom polenta was out of this world.
It was great, the team was accommodating and the service was outstanding.
Definitely rushed us. I understand there is limited time due to Covid -but we were there much less than an hour. Waitress was pretty inattentive. Host/ hostess rather rude. Scarpetta was a fave spot. Seems to have gone downhill.
Delish food; just overpriced for such small portions. Carbone even has bigger...
Amazing place for date night and delicious food. Highly recommend.
It was ok. I waited forever to get a reservation here. I wasn’t blown away like I had hoped to be. It was just ok.
Definitely get the spaghetti entree! It is amazing.
We are native New Yorkers, so finding new restaurants, especially ones with an amazing Italian cuisine is major for us! This place was amazing! From the many different and well put together dishes, to the staff and ambience, we will be back! 10/10! This restaurant was amazing and I have already recommended it to all of my friends!
Indoor dining first experience! Tables were spaced out, food and wine were just as I remembered it. Still one of my favourite restaurants in NYC. Looking forward to returning again and again.
The atmosphere is really nice! The female host that greeted me and showed me to my table was super sweet. Our server, German, was very helpful and attentive. It’s probably the best service I’ve experienced at any restaurant. The food is ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, portions are kind of smaller but it’s really well prepared food. If you’re dining outside on a particularly windy day be careful of fallout from the patio decor (such as the hanging flowers). But they do have above-head heaters in case you do want to dine outside, but you’re worried about being cold.
The music was too loud
