Italian
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.

We had a great time at scarpetta. The place is a bit noisy so not great if you wanna chat and have a relaxed meal as you will be talking loud to b heard.

We reached 6pm for our dinner but the third person was running late due to accident on highway. The hostess were very rude and gave our table away despite reservations. The manager saved the day for us and our friend who drove 2 hours from NJ for the dinner.

At 7:30 restaurant was out of cod but we weren't told that when menus were presented. Only when we ordered. Wine was served too warm. Very loud.

The food was excellent. We had to sit at bar because we were early for our seating. I was charged for a cup of hot water ( if I knew I might have skipped it). Not very friendly staff.

Very busy Saturday night! Got there at 9:30 for a 10 pm reso, so We tried to grab a drink at the bar in the meantime. There were two bartenders on and it may have been helpful to have a had a third. The hostesses were very sweet, and doing their best given the busy night and people asking for tables. Sitting at the bar area so it was kind of loud and it seemed our server had too many tables.
Anyways! Food was good, loved the spaghetti, wish the portion was bigger!

The food was great, it was quite noisy so it was a bit of a challenge to hold a conversation and the servers where always occupied so getting their attention was also a challenge. My only advice if you chose to dine here, try not to sit on the couches because they are a few inches too low for the tables and can cause some back pains while dining.

Went here on a first date and had a lovely time. Our server was very helpful and took special care of my date who was a vegan. The food came out quickly, the cocktails were sized appropriately for their price, and everything had a great taste. You can here each other talk, the lighting is good; just a nice experience. Will return.

Food is delicious - the famous spaghetti and tomato sauce is aa good as you might have heard. Table waiter was charming and provided excellent service. However, when you have a reservation and don’t get seated for 30 minutes after the reservation I expect at the very least a verbal apology and restaurants who care about hospitality would provide a free drink or dessert as an apology. The front desk staff did neither and wasn’t especially friendly or hospitable.

This use to be our favorite date night place before it moved to the new location. Unclear if staff/kitchen are just settling into their new digs or if they have just settled for mediocrity. Service was very very poor - the server never had time to bring us our second cocktail (keep in mind we sat at 6:30pm and left the table at 8:30pm). The staples like the yellowtail crudo and pastas were delicious but as we ventured into some of the new entrees it was nothing to write home about. I hope this was an “off” night and experience and not the new standard.

Food was suboptimal: the famous spaghetti were grossly overcooked and tasted like coming out of a can (!). Service was very slow and they forgot about our desserts.
This is also very overpriced for this quality.

Was my son’s bday. Food, wine and service were excellent. The polenta with mushrooms app was awesome as was the spaghetti that we split as a pasta course. Both are iconic staples and must haves. Main we had wagyu steak that was perfect complemented with halibut. Only criticism was they charged us for the bday dessert for a $300 dinner. Was a little tacky, but didn’t ruin the overall experience.

We went to Scarpetta for a special celebration of our 25th anniversary, and they did not disappoint. The atmosphere is excellent, with soft lighting and a noise level inside that made for easy conversation. Beginning with the bread they provided, all the food was excellent. The veal tenderloin was delicious, with my only complaint being that receiving more than a single gnocchi alla Romana would have been nice. My wife ordered the branzino and raved about it. The lemon cake for dessert was outstanding, and the biscotti provided in honor of our anniversary was a much appreciated surprise. The staff was attentive without being overbearing. I would highly recommend it for any special occasion or just for a great fine dining experience.

Had a reservation for 8:30 on a Tuesday night - we were not seated until 9:15. The server comped one dish per course for us, but never told us what he’d do other than he’d “take care of us” so we ended up over-ordering and not finishing much of the food. The food itself was not as good as I remembered it to be - the pastas were past al dente and the flavors were unique but not delicious.
