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.

Reservation was not ready and we had to wait about 15 minutes for our 8 PM table. Food was very good--everything. The service was slow (took 2 1/2 hours from start to finish) and one dessert was completely forgotten (served ten minutes later than the others in our party, and only then after a reminder). Still, I'd go back any day. Spaghetti was great, but so was everything else.

The ambience is spot on. The food is ok to good depending on what you order. But I think the value for money is absolutely disappointing. I honestly feel everything is overpriced and we overpaid for a dinner. We asked for hot water and we were charged for it. We weren’t even told about it when we asked for it. Our waitress was good enough to take it off from our bill though. Overall - disappointed. Not returning or recomending to others. Way too expensive for the portion size.

Scarpetta is amazing! My wife and I watch a lot of Food Network so we are familiar with the chef/owner Scott Conant. Earlier that day we saw "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" on Food Network and they showed a dish from Scarpetta, so we immediately cancelled our reservation to another restaurant and made one for Scarpetta.

First off, the service was amazing, waiter was informative and conversational. All the wait staff worked together flawlessly in order to provide a superior dining experience.

Secondly, the pasta is the best Ive ever eaten, and we usually try an Italian place every time we visit a different city. From the bread and olive oil to the pasta and sauce, it was incredible. We will definitely go there again anytime we are in NYC.

If you are on the fence about this place, go and try it. I highly doubt you will be dissappointed!

Amazing food and service. We sat in the bar area and everything was clean and bright. The server made the meal even better with his friendly attitude and descriptions of the menu items. The food itself - especially the Polenta and the Spaghetti - was top-notch.

Great Jazz music and good vibes. Good lamb chops, cauliflower and surprising average ravioli (not expected from Chef Conan). Tummy Boudin.

We had a 9:30 reservation and we were not seated until 10:15. We were told this would be made up to us with something being sent to the table, nothing was ever sent. Food was very good the service was not.

If you like a lot of food this is not for you. Even my French wife who is used to French sized portions said “whoa this is an entree??”. Tiny tiny portions. Come on it’s pasta (albeit excellent pasta), make the size a little bigger.

Food was good, wagyu steak was suprising to have some chewy inedible parts to the steak unfortunately .....burrata was nice

Our server was a little bit off and I’m appeared to have a language barrier or just wasn’t having a good day

It is hard to find good, authentic Italian food, in my opinion. Scarpetta delivered. I had the lobster with spinach pasta. The dish was full of chunks of lobster and the pasta was clearly made fresh and tasted wonderful. The restaurant was a bit loud, because it was very busy. The decor is well done, and if you happen to have a seat that faces the wall, at least they have huge mirrors, so you can still see the entire dining room. One thing that is a negative is that if you are only a party of two it seems you always get sat at a tiny table that shares a bench seat with other parties. It is not pleasant to feel like you are crammed in with strangers and its also very hard to have a conversation or a romantic dinner when you are basically sitting with strangers. I guess this is just the way it is when you are trying to get as many tables as possible in a restaurant but it feels like parties of two get punished. Anyway, aside from that the food was great as was the service.

The food was excellent, as was the wine. Once at the table, the service was good, if slightly intrusive —too many different people checking in a little too often. The check-in process, though, was chaotic, and the front desk staff were both officious and disorganized. The bar area in which we were made to wait was very noisy and crowded, both with patrons and with staff rushing to and from the dining room.

I’ve been a regular at Scarpetta at Meatpacking. This was my time at the new Madison location. I went for lunch to celebrate my birthday with co-workers. I was thrilled to see that neither the food quality nor the service had changed or suffered. I love Scarpetta. I love it’s balance between beautiful, clean presentation and modern approach while preserving some classic tones and flavors. It is a meal that is satisfying to all senses. Everything tastes flawless and looks beautiful. The bread basket is out of this world. Every piece is fresh and delightful. The eggplant tapenade that comes with the bread basket is wonderful. I had the tuna-sushi appetizer. Absolutely beautiful, delicate dish. Melt in your mouth tuna with carrots and micro greens. Then I had to go with one of the best dishes that Scarpetta has and will ever offer: the spaghetti with basil & tomato. That chewy toothsome consistency makes that simple dish exquisite.
The chocolate cake we shared was clearly fresh and had not spent days in the fridge (which unfortunately is often the case with little chocolate cakes in many restaurants.)
It had perfect flavor, perfect sugar content, perfect consistency. The caramel ice cream that it came with was divine.
Everyone else loved their dishes. Our server was wonderful. Scarpetta is fantastic and I would always go back and bring family and friends.

Scarpetta is one of those restaurants that you always look forward to dining at. We first discovered Scarpetta during our honeymoon in Montauk. Scarpetta Beach was part of the Gurney Resort. The service, ambiance and food was beyond expectation. At this point, we have tried almost everything on the menu and we couldn't find a dish that we didn't like. Every dish was thought out and carefully prepared. Even the bread basket is something to write home about.

Since our honeymoon experience at Scarpetta Beach in the Montauk, we have been going to Scarpetta in the city for our anniversary. Have NEVER been disappointed. By far, one of our favorite restaurants in the country.

First time I have been to this location. Glad that the food is still so good! The restaurant is beautiful, service was good but we felt a bit rushed because they were clearing the plates a bit fast. Happy to see that they still have the Stromboli in the bread basket! Started with the beet salad and the mixed green salad. Shared 2 pastas (Spaghetti and Cavatelli). Both were outstanding! Highly recommend everything on this menu! I will be back!!

My entree was room temperature. When they brought it back it was on an extremely hot plate but again it was room temperature. Disappointing. Ambiance was very pretty. Service was attentive yet fish not cooked through as chefs like to serve it at room temperature leaves a lot to be desired.

Literally my favorite restaurant in New York. Have been coming here for about eight years and the new location in nomad is actually an even better experience then 14th St.If you have a chance to visit Scarpetta in Miami or LA I highly recommend it as well. Service is impeccable and the food in comparable.

We had a reservation for 9:30 pm and were not seated till 10:40pm, party of 2. Nothing was done to rectify or smooth over the situation. The appetizers ( tuna crude and octopus ) were excellent. The tomato and basil pasta was phenomenal. The main dishes were just average ( black cod and branzino ). The desert ( lemon cake ) was also nothing special. The service was good however the completely forgot my coffee. I guess they were tired as we ended up eating dinner at midnight.

I was a big fan of the West village location. However, they relocated onto Madison Avenue and the service is ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. Made a reservation at 8:30 and did not get seated until 9:15. Our server was rude, blatantly ignored us, and did not give us bread for 20 minutes. The food was great as always, but I would not recommend this place for a visit.
