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.

Being Italian, and having traveled the world, my wife and I have eaten in so many Italian restaurants, but our experience last night at Scalini Fedeli really blew us away. The one word that kept coming up when we first tasted each plate that was presented to us was "indescribable". Not only was the food exceptional, the service was very personal. Everyone made us feel like we were at home. I cannot end my review without mentioning the wonderful subdued ambiance of this great restaurant. It will definitely be one of the places we'll have dinner every time we return to Manhattan for a visit.

Gracious service, old-school feel, clearly lots of loyal downtown locals in the clientele. Menu is pre fixe, 3 courses and reasonable. I had a nice bucatini Amatriciana—saucier than I’m used to seeing but delicious. My sole entree was fresh and tasty. Nice wines by the glass. Experience was upscale but still very down to earth. Nice.

Scalini Fedeli is a must stop for any foodie searching for culinary greatness in NYC. Even if you are staying in midtown, the subway will get you to this Tribeca gem with little difficulty. Arrive hungry and enjoy the many courses as part of their prix fixe menu. The porcini mushroom ravioli appetizer was a huge hit at our table. The salmon and duck dishes for mains were also very delectable. And no need to go on about chocolate crème brûlée. A real treat.

Food delicious and the food value was great but they get you on wine and cocktails
Also was disappointed that they served the 2nd course while I was in the restroom For such an upscale restaurant they should have waited for my return so my food would be hotter

A very nice restaurant with delicious food. The set of dishes has the good characters of Italian food. The qualities of dishes are better than those in some Michelin recommended restaurants in NYC. The table is easy to book too.

We have been here several times and love the food, service and ambiance. Only reason for not getting five stars was because we were looking at the wine list when the waiter recommended the house red. He gave us a taste and it was great. Seeing the prices in the wine list, we thought we would try the house red to save some money. Got the bill. It was a $130 for the bottle. Not happy that we weren’t told and who charged $130 for a house wine? Looked it up afterwards. Retails for $30. That some pretty steep markup and a bit deceiving. All else was great.

If I could give Scalini Fedeli 10 stars, I would. It was an unparalleled dining experience. The staff are attentive but unobtrusive, making sure you are 100% satisfied with every aspect of your meal. You won’t feel rushed, as if they’re trying to turn tables over quickly. The food was beyond fantastic, I could go on and on. If Italian is what you’re in the mood for, as well as a simply wonderful evening out, you can’t go wrong here.

The food and service were both excellent. We did the tasting menu with the wine pairing, which I highly recommend. For dessert, we got the donuts, chocolate souffle, and a peanut brittle type desser. I would recommend the souffle of the three.
