Scarpetta has just began our Sunday brunch service! The restaurant is currently open for outdoor dining in our festive, winter-fortified Scarpetta Chalet, as well as indoor dining based on NYC legal capacity.

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.

The service was excellent and ambience was very nice, however I felt the food lacked a bit of flavor, particularly the Nero lobster dish which looked amazing but didn't have much flavor for some reason.

I made a reservation for two friends for their birthday for Saturday at 1:30pm, confirmed the night before via telephone, received a contact tracing text from them the morning of and they didn’t open until 5pm.

Very disappointed with Scarpetta after seeing the incredibly high ratings. We went for my daughter's grad and had admittedly high expectations given the reviews and prices. The bread was excellent. The razor clams were a classic example of form over function. Tiny portion with minimal flavor -- one open clam shell laying on a big disc of kosher salt. The Duck Confit & fois gras ravioli had very little flavor (how is that possible with duck and fois gras?) and was markedly over salted. The Cacio e Pepi ravioli was even more over salted, lacking flavor, and some were partially filled with water. The portions were very small.

The service and ambience were great.

So, if you want good service and ambience and don't mind poor quality food priced at levels that would demand excellence, go for it!

Since the pandemic, we have all tried to help the restaurants. The food was amazing. The bartenders and servers were professional and fantastic but I cannot believe we still have hostesses refusing to sit a patron for a 6:30pm reservation until the full party arrives. I understand you are trying to maximize your seating but it took no time to get back to this type of seating policy. It’s uncomfortable and with the bar packed, there is no where to comfortably sit to wait for your guests.

Too expensive for the food. Nothing very special at all. Outside seating is great but even with a reservation we weren’t seated until the third person arrived. This from a restaurant that cost $500 for dinner for three! So hung out on the corner. Management was very nice but noting makes up for not being seated.

Wonderful dinner at Scarpetta! They have lovely outdoor seating. My beet salad, striped bass and chocolate cake were all so delicious. My server Alec was awesome and made certain that all was perfect. It’s a little pricey, but definitely worth every penny for the fine quality and service.

Incredibly wonderful food, cocktails, wines and ambiance...for sure! While we felt a bit rushed, we realized our party of 4 was not moving along as expected in this era of social distancing... Incredible appetizers and even greater entrees. The branzino -superb; the lobster negronini - exquisite... Burrata, octopus, short ribs - all fabulous. My dirty martini was beyond perfect. The wine suggested by the sommelier was also a hit. Our server was in good spirits and made excellent suggestions... Oh, and the desserts are a must! Do it. Totally worth it. Thanks for a loverly evening, with my sisters whom I hugged for the first time since the pandemic began! A very special evening...

It was one of those weekend NYC nights where everyone was out and about. I happened to be late for the reservation but they were very accommodating and seated us right away...The food was great and the ambience even better! Would definitely recommend it for date night or for a friends get together

The vibe was chill and the setting was perfect for catching up without being too loud. The waiter was attentive and had no complaints except for the portions. I had the mozzarella appetizer and the ravioli for my main both of which were extremely small portions.

The concierge and hosts were rather rude and that tends to set the scene. Happy to be eating out and spending money in NY. The food and service were great once we sat down. Don’t know that I’ll be back because of the initial presentation.
