$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.

    We hadn’t been to Scalini Fedeli in a long time and decided to book for our anniversary. The food was terrific and service was top notch. We both started with a porcini ravioli with black truffle special which was sinfully good. I had the beef short ribs and hubby had the red snapper. Portions were large and we took dessert home. Loved that they allowed corkage too. We’ll be back soon and we can’t wait.

    A great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. We went there to celebrate my son's graduation. We had done the same with my other son. On that occasion I gave 5 stars for all 5 categories. However, I am giving 3 stars for service as we felt extremely rushed. The appetizers and desserts were really tasty and of a high standard. The entrees were alright but not exceptional, hence the 4 stars for value for money aspect.

    The food was delicious. We were seated at a very, very small table that seemed to be an afterthought. Very concerned about how close the tables were. We have dined there many times before the pandemic and never saw as many tables. We had a server who poured our water and brought us our table wear who splashed the water and just placed the flatware haphazardly. He also squeezed between our table and the next which pushed my husband forward in his seat. No apology.

    Excellent app course, si so main, excellent dessert. Service was attentive. Biggest negative was that the restaurant was incredibly noisy. Noisy enough to make conversation difficult. Thus the low ambiance rating. Tough to recommend.

    The restaurant inside was nice and had a good ambiance. The food and service were good as well. But the parking lot has deep pot holes. It is in a terrible shape and unsafe as well. The owners should fix the property as it is unsafe both for cars and people. On a rainy day it is difficult to find a parking spot that will allow you to step out of your car without landing in a puddle.
