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.

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
They are doing an amazing job w COVID protocol and food is delicious as ever!
We love this restaurant - they’ve made pandemic outdoor dining feel like the upscale meals we are missing so much. Can’t thank our server, staff and chef enough for this amazing experience!!
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.
