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.

The overall expectation was exceeded by far. Attention to detail from the Maitre D', waiters to coat check girl was impeccable. Food was a culinary journey from start to finish. The complimentary accompaniments were a pleasant surprise and well received. Worth every penny and some.

Scalini Fedeli was amazing! Take the recommendations of the sommelier and servers. They are spot on with their recommendations. We were greeted the moment we walked in and the high level service continued throughout the entire evening.

An Enchanting Evening!
It was a special anniversary for us ,we have been here several times before and as always the waiters were superb, the food excellent, and the ambience just beautiful.
We love the pastas as well as the fish and chicken, the chocolate tort dessert was divine.
A classy New York restaurant, too few are left.

A wonderful dining experience. The wait staff, food and food presentations were first-class. The tasting menu was enhanced by the wine pairings done by sommelier Pierro. We highly recommend Scalini Fedeli.

Spectacular dining experience. I went with grandma who is very ‘picky’, but the service staff and kitchen were very accommodating. The host gave us a quiet table and they acknowledged her 90th birthday...they were so sweet. The busboy, kept bringing bread and coffee to her. The food, especially my snapper Livornese and mushroom napoleon were exquisite. We will be back!

Food is excellent. Service feels rushed but they give you several complimentary food items....so they are on top of moving things along to coordinate the timing of everything. Not inexpensive but worth it compared to other options.

From the minute we walked in, we were impressed. The decor is lovely. The prix fixed menu offered so many choices. The arugula salad was fresh and just the right temperature. The pastas were outstanding as were the truffle crusted Arctic char and the crusted snapper. There were several amuses bouches, also tasty. Scaling Fidelity is an adult restaurant in every way!
