Usually go for dinner, but this time hosted a business lunch. Superb as always.
We were celebrating our anniversary and special birthday and the restaurant couldn’t have been more accommodating. The food was delicious the service excellent and they made the evening very special.
The food is scrumptious and expertly planned and prepared. Every appetizer, main dish, and dessert choice is fun to read over and imagine ordering. We were 4 sisters for lunch, and everyone ordered something different for each course, and no one was disappointed. All of us are picky home cooks, so we wanted to explore a new restaurant for us that would be a treat. Scalini Fedeli met and exceeded our expectations.
In my case I had the Goat Cheese and Beet Salad, Veal Scallopini, and Chocolate Truffle cake with Cherries...all superb!
The server couldn't have been nicer. And the atmosphere is lovely.
Great service n food. Just not a fan of the decor.
The restaurant was busy. The food and decor was a little dated.
Wonderful food. Great ambiance. The knowledgeable and attentive waiter was outstanding. We will be coming back more frequently.
One of the top 10 meals I’ve ever had, including 2 weeks spent in Italy. Attentive service & impeccable attention to detail. Highly recommended! We will be back.
Wonderful from start to finish
Still one of the best restaurants in Northern NJ. Consistently outstanding food and service. Alex our server was excellent. Engaged, attentive, professional and friendly. If you are looking for a fantastic high quality meal for a special occasion, you can’t go wrong here.
The food was outstanding. The table location was quiet and conversation was easily heard across the table. The portions were larger than I have previously experienced at fine dining restaurants. The service was very good in the beginning but as the evening passed there were long periods of time when a waiter was not available and/or did not check-in to make sure there was nothing we needed. I still highly recommend this restaurant although the service could have been a bit better.
Every course was delicious! Will be returning in the not too distant future.
Food was amazing! Service was great, too, and the ambiance lovely. So delicious, innovative and very ample portions. Love that you can bring your own wine on weekdays even though they have a liquor license. A splurge that's well worth it!
We come to Scalini Fedeli on almost all of our special occasions (and more), and have done this for the past 20 years. The other night was our 35th wedding anniversary, so very special. The food was spectacular, as always (tagliatelle and banana tart were the outstanding ones this meal). We are very Covid-careful, and booked a table on the porch. Wow, what great ambiance! And our server, Makis (?), was so wonderful…he wore a mask, even though it was outside and not required, and wore a little vaccination pin to assure us, which we both really appreciated. Besides that, he was also friendly, gracious and personally engaging. It really made our special day even more so. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
Great service excellent food
My favorite restaurant - service, ambiance and food is consistently amazing. We have been coming here for 12 years and Scalini time and time again has been a wonderful experiences. Highly recommend - easily the best restaurant in NJ and comparable to the best in NYC!
This is one of my favorite restaurants and when I want to treat friends to a special dinner I bring them here. And the Martinis are the best.
Portions are small, so you may want to order a few different entrees,
well crafted cocktails, many wines by the glass and 1/2 btl, perfectly balanced sauces and generous portions. Desserts were a disappointment, service was a bit rushed and the atmosphere needs a little customer-focus. The bar knows what they are doing with the cocktails and the kitchen knows how to prepare a multi-layered taste-bud pleasing meal. And, since this is a 5 course prix fix, having a fairly extensive list of both wines by the glass and 1/2 btl is appreciated. However, the beverage manager needs to spend some time educating the staff so they can guide you better. & a few rare gems (something not too pricey but off the beaten path) would be appreciated. Also, when a guest is pairing (as we did) cocktails, 2 bottles of wine, plus a glass of wine, with their courses, you need to slow down and let them finish before you rush them into the next course. We sat outside on a fairly warm august evening. They do not have any umbrellas so the sun beats down on you. They should invest in an umbrella. They also don't have any fans, there is electric outside, so a $15 investment would help to keep the air moving when the breeze dies. They also seem to have a mosquito issue which likely the fan would help (but someone should look into). I'm not sure why they have valet parking, I couldn't find the person when we went to leave and finally just had to just find the keys myself - not a big deal, but they may want to look into this.
Excellent pre fixe choices. All selections were thoroughly enjoyed by my wife and me. We did not have any identical orders.
Poor service from waiter. Very inattentive.Barley saw him.
Overall very nice evening. A dear friend was moving out of NJ and we met for a celebratory dinner at his favorite restaurant. I found my server a bit condescending when I asked about wine recommendations. He also rushed our ordering selections. We hadn’t seen each other in-person in over a year so eating dinner was important but not urgent.
Beautiful dining room. Perfect for a special occasion.
Overall outstanding. The food was first class and the service was attentive. They try hard to make your experience pleasant.
Date night 23yr old, great food, very unique
Everything was excellent
Outstanding in every way. $64 prix fixe is a steal. Wine list intelligently chosen and reasonably priced. Service knowledgeable and attentive. And the food is just great.
Delicious food with an artistic flair. Prompt, professional service. Great experience!
One of the best in NJ for many years.
As usual it was a pleasure to dine with you
Great food and service. Could use some updating and a change in background music. The food is incredible!
As someone's that's a "regular" I was very disappointed last night..The service was not good..Our waiter seemed to have forgotten we were there once dinner was over..Never came over to ask if we wanted coffee..Our desserts were pre-ordered so they came out, and were finished before I was able to get his attention and order coffee..
I ordered the snapper..It was cold, and dry..
I'm hoping this is a one off..This is my fav restaurant..
As usual we had an excellent meal at Scalini Fedeli, however, we were very surprised by the service which was extremely rushed and rude. After asking our waiter to open a bottle of wine we brought, he abruptly started pouring it without asking who in our party wanted red. Two of us don't drink red but it was too late to ask as he poured the almost the entire bottle. When the plates and flatware were replaced after each course, the waitstaff practically threw the clean plates, forks and knives down to the point that we all started laughing. In all the years enjoying Scalini Fedeli, I've never seen service like this. I hope someone from the restaurant reads this as the situation should be addressed.
Delicious Food, Great Service and the Manager, Isabella, is wonderful, hard working and extremely accommodating! This is one of our favorite restaurants for over 24 years and even dealing with the Pandemic their standards remain exceptional!
Notified restaurant of birthday in reservation notes. However, no acknowledgement was made.
Always an incredible meal every time we go to Scalini Fedeli. Started with the Ecuadorian shrimp with honeydew melon, prosciutto and mozzarella and then shared entree with my friend - the duck (always out of this world) and the shrimp in a Sherry wine and garlic sauce. My husband and friend started with the soft egg yolk raviolo. Nothing beats the banana tarte for dessert, in my opinion. A great meal and a great night with friends.
Scalini still has the prix fixe menu with most of the old favorites. Outside dining is also an option. Service was very good and we were not disappointed.
