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.
Everything was great; food, staff and ambiance!
Perfect spot, with great service.
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.
Food was amazing!!! One of the best dinners I have had in some time. Our waiter was not very friendly not very helpful..... disappointing since this was not a cheap night out. Did not feel welcome.... not sure I will return.
This is the first time I'm giving 5`s across the board ! What an amazing dining experience. The food is uniquely outstanding with a lot of complexity. Can't wait to return!
Had an exceptional meal in tranquil surroundings. Great place to enjoy fine dining and also conversation with friends.
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.
Small portion on fish entree for the prices charged.
Excellent, from start to finish.
Celebrated our anniversary. Everything was perfect; food, service, ambience. Perfect.
Spectacular in every respect. Exceptional food, romantic ambience, and extremely pleasant and accommodative wait staff. Scalini Fedeli never lets us down. Can’t wait to be back!
Excellent. Lived up to the hype
The food was fantastic and the service was great. I would recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
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.
Wonderful and romantic! Great food and service!
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.
An excellent upscale Italian restuarant with lots of charm, warm ambience and excellent food. It was a great romantic place for my birthday and Valentine's Day. Also the chocolate dessert menu was to die for.....just awesome!!!!!
Thank you for a wonderful dining experience. Warren our waiter was wonderful and attentive and we even got him to smile a little bit! The food was exceptional I thoroughly enjoyed the porcini mushroom raviolis we did upgrade a few of our items well worth it. the food and the service or impeccable I would definitely return
Scalini Fedeli is a long-time favorite! Had lunch here to celebrate an anniversary. Service was excellent! Our waiter was attentive, and paced our meal perfectly for a leisurely lunch. He even lit a candle in our dessert, much to our surprise. One comment: I have had the mushroom ravioli previously as an appetizer and enjoyed it. Today I ordered it as a main course. It is better as an appetizer, too much, too rich as a main course (my opinion, obviously).
This is the best restaurant I’ve been to in New Jersey !! Food and whole experience is just fantastic !!
Excellent service. Food proportions were just right. Great experience for a special occasion.
What a wonderful restaurant! We enjoyed everything and are planning our next visit back already. 💯👌🏻
The meal was good...the service was indifferent at best. This is considered one of the better restaurants in its area and the food was quite good and the wine list had a solid range of good options. But when you go to a high end restaurant and an arrogant waiter treats you like an afterthought...it's better to try a different option next time. Within a mile of Scalini Fedeli there are at least two other solid options that have the hospitality thing down a whole lot better: Serenade and D'Oro (a BYO).
Have eaten here a number of times and they NEVER disappoint.....
Food is beyond amazing. A ladies night out catching up with friends in a wonderful ambience, great wine and desserts. Will be coming back with the hubby for a date night.
Swoon food. Even old standards like veal chop Milanese are more succulent and tender here. Original preparations are also plentiful. Snapper with beets and a red wine reduction was outstanding. Portions are generous with several intermezzos offered. Service was attentive but unobtrusive. Price fixe dinner of $59 was very reasonable compared to other local restaurants and considering the quantity and quality of the food. Can't wait to go back.
Many dishes simply have too many ingredients. Where six would have sufficed, there are 12, so tastes and flavors are often hidden. Restaurant is pretty, but with arched ceilings of the original Bouley, it can be loud, even very loud, when it's full and you're sitting at the wrong table.
We were there on New Years’ Eve, when we booked the reservation the website didn’t say it was going to be $100.00 a person not included tax and gratuity. Website said $60 a person. Then when u open the menu it says coffee and tea included and so your telling me for 100.00 a person plus tax and gratuity they won’t even include soda, this place is a rip off. Also the food isn’t bad but the portions are small as can be, I left there hungry and get a load of this u can bring you’re own wine but to uncork the bottle it’s a 40.00 fee. Not one Tv for New Year’s Eve and they completely raised the prices so bad it’s unreal. Place is a 1 across the board
The best restaurant in nj. The most incredible sauces on their pastas and entrees. Mushroom ravioli, veal zingers, pork cutlet, banana tart, tiramisu are not to be missed
Hadn't been for a couple years, still the best food in NJ. Big, interesting menu, pasta and
sauces are high end. Pretty room, good service. You pay it, but it's worth it.
Great wine. Great food.
Celebrating our 35th anniversary, we were treated like special guests by staff. The setting resembles a Tuscan villa and the food could not be better. My husband’s Tuscan Bean Soup and my mixed greens with mushroom Napoleon were outstanding. His short ribs and my pignoli- crusted salmon were top notch. Dessert menu (half was chocolate delicacies) had many amazing choices. His banana tart with wafer-thin crust and my bittersweet chocolate truffle with pistachio gelato are memorable. Scalini Fedeli made our night magical.
