Scalini Fedeli ranked among New York's finest restaurants since its opening in early 2004, taking Italian cuisine to new heights. Rewarded with the highest overall ratings in the Zagat Survey, Scalini Fedeli has been granted one star by the Michelin guide in it's inaugural 2006 issue. The inviting decor features vaulted ceilings and European antiques and provides the perfect setting for chef Michael Cetrulo's delightful cuisine which offers the finest ingredients coupled with a confidence and grace that ensures your meal will be a memorable one. Menu highlights include soft egg yolk raviolo with ricotta and truffle butter and New York's finest venison chop in a port wine and balsamic vinegar sauce with toasted hazelnuts, sautéed spinach and roasted Mission figs. The 350-bottle wine list encompasses all regions of Italy but also does justice to the best American wineries.

    We celebrated my husbands Birthday and the. Experience was spectacular. The restaurant is charming and comfortable and I love that it is spacious. The menu offers so much variety and each dish is unique and delicious. I especially loved the veal chop but we were all sharing and found every dish to be spectacular. The sauces used compliment the dish to perfection .The service was friendly and professional. We enjoyed the complimentary chefs choices that were served by surprise numerous times through the meal. And the price is extremely reasonable for the quality and dining experience. I am a New Yorker and I’m so happy to have found a new restaurant to looks forward to.

    We had another fabulous dining experience at Scalini Fedeli. Food and service was outstanding. It was a bit noisy which unfortunately comes with most dining experiences in Manhattan. My one issue was the price of the single glass red wines . The cheapest was $28 and the other choices were $34 /35 dollars which astounded me so we went with white wine which were more reasonable. I hope the restaurant decides to put a more moderate priced red wine by the glass as a choice.

    This was our first time at Scalini Fedeli, and it won’t be our last. One of the best dinner experiences, if not the best. From the moment we walked in to the time we left, total attention to me and my husband. All of the food from the prefixed menu was delicious. We left wanting more. Definitely worth the money.

    The best experience ever. You get 3 apps to start and then choose a primi, piatti, and dessert for only 79 a person. Everything is homemade and absolutely delicious. Highly rexokmend the special vodka sauce or the arrabiata! New favorite place and service was outstanding!

    The meal was outstanding and the kitchen kept sending tasty surprises to the table. Food preparation was delicious and the desserts were wonderful. I enjoyed a nice glass of Primitivo Reserva. My wife had vodka, which we thought overpriced at $25 per glass. The ambiance was perfect, exactly what we were looking for. We would definitely come back again and recommend the restaurant to friends.

I really don’t know how this place is not rated 5.0! The restaurant has a great ambiance and the service is unmatched! I didn’t try ever dish but everything we had was superb.

    The menu was prix fixed which I don't like since I am celiac and husband vegetarian. That is my fault. I did not pay enough attention to online menu. The service and wait staff were outstanding and they did all they could to cater to our dietary needs. Beautiful space. The food we had was delicious. I just wish menu was Ala carte. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
