Scalini Fedeli - Chatham

4.8
1912 Reviews
$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.

think they shouldn’t call the chicken scapriello as it is not spicy but it is delicious nonetheless

Great ambiance, wonderful waiter and overall experience.
Food was served very fresh, nicely portioned and presented.
Would definitely come back.
For the spectacular experience some ‘umf’ was missing in the kitchen department.

Second time here. Not up to first experience. First was great. Very good food and attentive service. Last night was mediocre. Felt very rushed. Had to ask to have a decent bottle of Barolo decanted. Wine was put in a carafe not a proper decanter. The door to the outside seating area was left open for long periods allowing major street noise to enter. If we wanted to sit outside we would have asked for outside seating. Overall just ok.

Great service, food and atmosphere. Prix fixe menu is extensive. wines are excellent by the glass but a good wine list is available. Very friendly and not at all pretentious
for this very up-scalled dining experience.

I have eaten at this restaurant 5 times now. Each time is has been a prefix menu. I have yet to have an "off" dish. This place never disappoints. The food and the service is outstanding and does not miss a beat. You can't go wrong with choosing to dine here. Expensive, yes. But you get what you pay for at this joint.

I had the egg ravioli which was very good. Once you split the ravioli in half, the egg yolk pours out. It was a surprise and very tasty. I'm allergic to shrimps so they substituted the shrimp with a nice salad with bread and butter. I had the duck with mash potatoes for dinner...another delicious meal...the meat was tender. I had the donut which I could not eat but one because I was so full. My hubby finished it even though he was not hungry. My hubby had the shrimp, veal, and cheese cake and he was delighted with it all. The portion are not big but I and my hubby were full by the time we had our dessert and wine. The service was perfect too.

There was a screaming baby in the corner most of the night. Other than that it was pretty good. They have a pre-fixe menu for $64pp so the price was pretty fantastic for all you get.

We were a group of eight out to celebrate a birthday. The food was exquisite! We all ordered different thing and found ourselves passing plates around so we could all try everything. The timing and attention to detail by the staff was impeccable. The ambiance is cozy, warm and inviting. This was out first time but we are planning another visit soon. A true hidden jem.
