$50 and over
Italian
Scalini Fedeli was opened by chef-owner Michael Cetrulo in 1995 and very quickly became New Jersey's highest rated Italian restaurant. Rated excellent by the New York Times in 1996 and New Jersey's favorite restaurant in Zagat's Survey in 2001 and New Jersey Monthly's best Italian and top 25 overall in 2007. Highlights from the menu include soft egg yolk raviolo with black truffle butter, pignoli crusted salmon with artichoke and mint agnolotti in a light tomato and basil broth and braised short ribs of beef with a cherry pepper and port glaze. Set in an historic building built in 1740, the atmosphere is slightly formal with Tuscan style vaulted ceilings finished with Venetian plaster. Tapestry and antique mirrors adorn the walls.

    I took my wife here for Valentine’s day and we had a wonderful time. We had the 5 course pre fix menu. Not too much food, not too little food, perfect amount. Service was very warm and professional. I had the red snapper as an entree and it was cooked very nicely. I would recommend anyone to go and spend an evening here and try the red snapper or salmon. Great place.

    We consistently have a wonderful dining experience at Scalini Fedeli that begins with a warm greeting by Isabella who also makes sure everything runs smoothly in the dining room. Our server Dan was knowledgeable about the menu and explained the prix fixe before we ordered. The prix fixe is well priced for several courses. Dan was also very attentive throughout our meal. The food is excellent- we highly recommend the porcini mushroom ravioli if it is on the specials. The wine list is extensive with a good variety of well priced wines by the glass and half bottles if you prefer over a full bottle of wine. The cocktails are well crafted and interesting. We have enjoyed many dinners over the years at Scalini Fedeli and will continue to do so as long as we live in the area.

    Food and atmosphere were perfect for a date night. Excellent menu and quality. Waiter was on top of us to order making it feel very rushed. Once order was placed then it was hard to get someone to even fill water glass.

    Service was great. Everything needed salt and a lot of things on the menu they did not have in stock. We have dined here many times in the past and the food has tremendously went downhill. I'm not sure if there is a new chef because my prior experiences were great.

    been there 6 times in the past year -- three great meals and three great meals minus the entrees of very over cooked pork chop, veal and salmon - not to mention the toffee served at the end of the meal was burnt for this visit ... I do not expect perfection but I do expect my entree to be edible.

    A five course menu that hit a homerun. Service that matched the food and the evening was so enjoyable. So many food groups, Seafood, Pasta, Chicken, Sausage, all cooked to perfection. A palate cleanser and a fantastic dessert plate. We were in food heaven. Our table was a little delayed when we arrived so we were offered a glass of prosecco but opted for a Super Tuscan. I ordered a second glass during dinner.A great dining experience!
