Only bad thing about Scarpetta is having to deal with parking at the Fountainbleau. It's awful. Prepare to wait 30+ minutes to get your car. Uber or taxi there is a much better choice.

The service is amazing. John the DM was a sweetheart and I loved the overall experience. I love to cook and consider myself a foodie. The food was good but not memorable. My bronzino was ok. The skin was crispy and it was cooked properly however it lacked flavor. The sauce and garnish was bland. My favorite was definitely the tiramisu

Our party of 10 came to enjoy the 10 Year Anniversary menu: $55 for a 4 coarse meal of the best dishes. We loved the choices. The polenta appetizer was delicious. The next choice was either duck or mushroom truffle pasta. Both were outrageously good. I almost didn't have room for the main coarse (branzino) and the dessert of the most wonderful tiramisu or pistachio icecream with donut balls. There was a great value to all these foods. All my friend lets very happy. I was sufficiently spoiled. I will try to go back again soon.

PS: We were in a well lit comfortable room with room to move around and speak with one another.

We were seated in the terrace area. Not a nice ambiance compared to the main hall. The couch was uncomfortable as it didn’t provide back support. But the main problem was the noise. It was so loud that I could barely talk with my girlfriend. The food and service were average. Not worth the prices in my opinion.

This was our first time at Scarpetta, and we had a great time, although it was very crowded and noisy, the food was excellent, the duck ravioli was out of this world, really it was heavenly! The staff very attentive and friendly, would definitely recommend and will certainly visit again next time we are in Miami.

OMG!!! What an incredible dining experience from the moment my wife and I sat down. I want to make sure that I mention all of the staff who created this unforgettable night. Gian-Carlo, our waiter was friendly and spot on. Allison, our sommelier made a great upgraded selection for us, which paired perfectly with all of our dishes. Which brings me to the food and can simply be stated as perfecto. The carne cruda, polenta, mediterranean octopus, agnolotti dal plin and finally the spaghetti. We have dined at Chef Scott Conant's restaurants multiple times and it has always been a tremendous experience, but this was above and beyond. For that, I would also like to thank John Thai and Manuel Rosal for "THE BEST" dining event. Incredible, bon appetito and 4 thumbs up my wife and I.

My husband ordered the spaghetti which everyone raived about in reviews. It was very good and perfectly al Dante, but nothing over the top for the price. Our appetizer, the tuna tartar, was so salty I could feel the salt granules in my mouth. I mentioned it to the waiter who did and said nothing. He then came out with our dessert menu...dude, we haven’t even ordered our entrees yet? We had to ask a random waiter to please refill our waters since our waiter was MIA. he then resurfaces to take our order. I order the filet and my husband ordered the BranZino. Take one guess...my filet was so salty I couldn’t taste the meat! I mention it to my waiter who again doesn’t know what to do or say. He doesn’t even offer me a replacement dish. My husband barely takes 3 bites of his branzino which was prepared flattened and looked seared on the outside. He didn’t care for it. Again, a good waiter sees almost an entire dish in the plate and doesn’t say a word? After an unsatisfactory experience I will not be recommending this restaurant to anyone I know.

I took a client to Scarpettas and it was a great experience. The service was outstanding, reminding me of how dining experiences are in Italy. The food was absolutely delicious and the wine choices fantastic. It was so good that I took my team to dinner there the next night. I enjoyed the short ribs and the scallops. Everyone at the table both evenings enjoyed their meals. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Restaurant was very loud. Literally had to almost yell across the table to be heard. Absolutely no intimate or romantic ambience.

Spaghetti was bland at best. Chicken undercooked. Creamy polenta and mushrooms tho were delicious.

Had to ask for the Miami spice menu four times of different staff.

Should have went back to StripSteak for a second night. Far superior.

We decided to give the Miami Spice menu a try and were excited to visit Scarpetta based on the reviews. The appetizer was outstanding, burata salad as well as the polenta and truffle mushroom. The dinner options were also delicious. The desert was good but a bit underwhelming. Given the overall value of Miami Spice it was fine. Our server, however, left a bit to be desired. I think the moment he knew we were there for the Miami Spice menu at not the regular dinner menu, he decided we were no longer a priority, even though we did order drinks. In fact we had not received our dinner entrees yet and he came over and asked us if he could bring one each of the dessert options. (Seriously?! Are you that much in a rush to get us out of there, given that we weren't even there an hour at that point.) That was the only negative but an important one if I'm the manager of that restaurant. The rest of the staff bringing out the entrees and clearing, etc. were on point. Thank you Miami Spice!
