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.

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.

One of the best meals we ever had. Food was out of this world. It was pricey, but I don't mind paying up for quality. Delicious!!!

Food is always excellent and service was exceptional. Would be nice if they could figure out how to create some bar seating to make use of when you are waiting.
