$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.

This is a beautiful restaurant with old world charm. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The lunch menu is restricted due to the pandemic but more than adequate. There is outside seating on the front porch ( a little noisy with traffic) but, lovely.

What a fantastic Valentines Day 5 fix prix dinner..... All the food complimented one another.... The Chef is the owner and puts much love into the preparation of the food. Rory, our head lead attendant was incredibly attentive and superb manners. Overall experience was above excellent.... Will certainly make Scalini Fedeli one of our GO-TO eating establishments.

Food and service was excellent! Minor adjustment: single large ice cube instead of smaller cubes would make my whiskey drink even more enjoyable.
Also, $45 cork fee is a little steep, but all in all a terrific experience.
Love Scalini Fedeli and look forward to my next meal there!
