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.

Continues to be an excellent restaurant. Service was a bit slower than usual. Main dishes (fish) were terrific, but the appetizers were not superlative. Overall was a very enjoyable evening but the restaurant wasn't the "wow" we have experienced in the past.

Lovely atmosphere with space between tables. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. I knew there was a pre-fixe menu, but not that there were appetizer, dessert, sorbet, and coffee/cookie courses in addition to the first and second plates on the website. No corkage fee Mon-Fri was also a pleasant surprise. Best restaurant we've been to since moving to the area and perfect for a special occasion. We will definitely be back.

We came to celebrate a special birthday. The food and service was quite good. Since we were a table for four it wasn’t expected to have to raise our voices to be heard. Tables were too close together. A more intimate setting would have been nicer.

Place has a nice old school feel. It's also dressed up like you are walking into a restaurant in Tuscany. Service was great. The meal was unbelievable. I shared the mushroom ravioli appetizer with my wife as well as a light mozzarella salad. For dinner I had the 18 oz. Pork chop. Hands down best pork chop I've ever had in my life. So good I left bone on the plate with nothing else attached. Bottom line I had a great time, the staff was great, and the food was amazing.

The service, as always, is wonderful. The menu is slightly changed but not in any substantial way, which is one of the reasons we don't go as often as we used to. For those new to it, it will be excellent.

Heard rave reviews but I think people are living in the past when they talk about scalini. It was just ok the raviolo app was good my wife's pasta was very undercooked very hard, main courses were s big disappointment I order lamb and the description had no signs of balsamic vinegar but the sauce was loaded with it, my wife's veal chop ordered medium came rare and also very difficult to eat it's s tbone veal chop which Took over the entire plate, believe in a restaurant like this should come pre sliced we couldn't even cut it without making a mess. Just not up to par with what you hear about it, I really don't think we will be back just not a good first impression especially the fact there was only 3 tables in the restaurant. I hate to leave a negative review but I think the owner needs to know what is going on. Such a landmark for many years would hate to see it go down hill for minor mistakes that can be fixed.

Sorry, but not that impressed, food was mediocre (duck was chewy and the pork chop was flavorless), felt rushed, and over priced by about $100. We really wanted to make a memory but couldn't really enjoy the time we had there for what was supposed to be a romantic dinner.

For a pre-fix menu where the restaurant knew exactly what was to be served, the service was miserably slow. Almost had to ask for wine list after being seated and every course was slow. When the food came it was great but the extremely slow service and lack of attention made the Valentines experience quite diminished. Would have to think twice about visiting again.

Excellent food. Would love to know the recipes. The only issue encountered: my husband ordered Hennessy XO, but was served VSOP.
