The service was attentive, staff was knowledgeable , ambiance was nice enough. The food was lacking. The amuse bouche was a mushroom ravioli with truffle cream sauce (foamed?) it needed salt or a nice shaving of pecorino Romano. An amuse bouche is supposed to enhance or open your taste buds to the forthcoming food, but alas fell flat. As each course progressed most members of the party shared that the food was underwhelming - mostly in the seasoning and even the temperature of the food/plates was off as if the food was sitting on a under heated pass before being served. The star of the meal was dessert with some inventive creations and incorporations of gelato (nicely done l) with some of the desserts. All in all there are lots of good places to eat so you can skip this one.

Outstanding meal and service at this charming restaurant.
We loved our dinner experience here.
The price fixe meal is one if the best dinners I've had in NYC.
The ravioli starter gas divine followed the the Artic Char that was delicate and flavorful.
If your looking a quiet evening out with great food...this is the place.
I'll be coming back!

I went on the computer to find a romantic Italian restaurant for a romantic evening out. My wife is of Italian decent. My computer research led me to Scalini Fedeli. We showed up and had the most perfect experience. The service, the food, the ambience , the detail to the little things, everything was fantastic, as I wanted it to be for this evening. We will gon back

A superb experience from the minute we walked in! The staff were very attentive but not so they were intrusive. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and advised us well, the wine was pricey but excellent. It was a very nice touch to bring us complimentary tasters in between courses, all were delicious. I had scallops for main which were Devine and my husbands duck was even better! The deserts were amazing too, chocolate cake and cherries, can it get any better? It was a really lovely touch that the chef wrote Happy Anniversary on our plates and even gave us a complimentary glass of desert wine. Perfect evening!

Service, atmosphere and food were all phenomenal. Will definitely return for a special occasion. Only odd thing was we were charged as if we cancelled the reservation within 48 hours of the reservation, which we realized after we had gone to the restaurant. I’m sure once we speak with them they’ll be more than accommodating as they were during dinner and assist us. Definitely recommend. Especially a round table by the windows.

I was very impressed from the moment our group walked in. Greeted by a friendly maitre’d who seated us quickly. Staff were friendly and very attentive. The food was excellent. From the antipasto to the dessert. Choices were plenty and each dish was better than the other.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely return when visiting New York.

Okay, it's a prix fixe menu. But for $70, you not only get 3 generously sized courses, you get multiple (I counted at least 4) complimentary items. These included desserts, truffle ravioli, and a dessert wine, completely complimentary! Think about the other prix fixe places that charge upwards of $150 per person.

The service is so attentive and friendly that it's almost unbelievable. You can ask anything of any staff and they will jump to your need. We didn't finish our dessert because we were full and the server was extremely concerned. We assured him it was okay, but you can tell they take your happiness seriously.

As for the food, simply magnificent. You almost have to re-calibrate your idea of what a good tasting meal is because this is far beyond the standard you've come to know.

This place = the best.

Food was yummy and we truly enjoyed the attention given by the helpful and hard working staff. A step back in time in the best way. Highly recommend for a night out that leaves you feeling great.

This place was fantastic all around. Food was superb. We went with all the waiter's recommendations on food selections. He was right on all accounts. This is not the newest or hottest place around. I would call it a sure bet for a great dining experience. This place has been around for more than 15 years and from the looks of it .... it is not going anywhere too soon. One of NYC's gems.
