Scalini Fedeli - Chatham

4.8

1990 Reviews
$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.

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.

While the appetizers and desserts were excellent, the main courses were only fair- not very flavorful and not even served warm in a couple of cases. For a restaurant of this reputation and cost, it was a disappointment. It was also extremely noisy. I doubt we will be back.

Though our table wasn't ready on arrival, we were offered a drink while we waited. Once seated in the old world style dining room, we were pleasantly greeted by our waiter, who explained how the fining experience worked. Each course was delicious with a good amount of time to digest in between. From cocktails to dessert a really great dining experience

We sent one appetizer back and it came out again lukewarm. This is not what one would expect early in the evening since we had a 5:30 reservation. The ambiance is lovely and the quality of the food is good but we hope the staff will pay more attention to these details in the future.
