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.

One of the better restaurants in Manhattan. They never disappoint! The food is delicious, the staff friendly and attentive. I am very glad that they are open again, it was a long wait. They are not as expensive when compared to other restaurants with the same qualities.

From the level of service the the quality and quantity of food, this place is a solid home run. Everyone is is extremely helpful and accommodating. The Menu has great options for everyone, and the portion are quite filling. The taste and presentation of each dish exceeds any expectation i have. Cant wait to go back.

The food was fantastic and the service was top notch. I have read other reviews and they were spot on when the talked about the extra dishes from the chef (his specialties). It is true to say don't fill up on the bread or eat before because you will miss out on the all the food you get.

Service was very good. Food portion size was adequate would be better if you were able to choose your own accompaniments. Rest rooms in basement where you have to go down a very narrow long flight of stairs and then walk across the length of the restaurant to reach it.

Everything was fine, the only “complaint” I have is that it was a little too quiet. Less than half the tables were filled on a Sunday so it was a little too quiet. Suggest bumping the lovely music up a notch to compensate for that. Overall, a great romantic experience.

Outstanding in Every Way!

We went to Scalini to celebrate Valentine's day and we were treated like royalty. We have been to the restaurant before and loved the food, but their Valentine's' menu was exceptional. The service is the best you can find in New York City and the food a step above of most two star Michelin restaurants. We will definitely be back.
