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.

A total gem. Outstanding food, really. Every dish was perfection. Additionally we received multiple small plates compliments of the chef. The atmosphere was comforting, not stuffy. I have dined all over NYC, I can’t believe I didn’t plan to come here sooner. Will make this my go-to for special occasions. Thank you for the experience!

We had heard many great things about Scalini Fedeli -- and they turned out to be more than true! The occasion was a birthday celebration and the staff did everything they could to make the evening special over and above their delicious food, attentiveness to our needs, and pleasantly quiet environment. We plan to return soon and often!

Extraordinary elegant dining room, quiet, perfect for any occasion. Several free goodies bring an element of surprise to the dining experience. Generous portions, maybe a bit too big as prix fix only menu forces the choice. Price a bit up there, but in line with the setting.

Some food outstanding, some just OK. Menu quite extensive. Service excellent, but otherwise much too fast for a quality restaurant. Lovely ambiance, but a bit noisy on Saturdays. Less so other days. Great value.

Delightful Italian restaurant in the heart of Tribeca - we walked from the ROXY Hotel! Old style, with beautiful interiors harking back to a by gone age! Excellent food - delicious pasta and we had duck and char topped salmon on crab meat! Absolutely nothing to fault - a memorable dinner!

Drinks and WAY OVERPRICED . 17 to 19 dollars a drink and I was not feeling even a little tipsy. Prifix menu is all they offer . Kinda ok not my favorite kind of dining . My husband and friend ordered the shrimp dinner it was literally 4 medium shrimp in the dish . No side, nothing . That’s not considered a dinner... Ambiance is nice , kind of old, service was good waiter was attentive , the bathroom is downstairs down 15 or more steps and then down the hall . . This place is over priced $750 including tip for dinner and drinks is way to much and when you leave you aren’t stuffed , many more places in NYC to choose from. You would not be missing out if you never dined here ... sorry but it’s the truth

You will not be disappointed. The food is fantastic. We were 5 people and we shared so I sampled several dishes and they were really really good (appetizers to dessert). It's quiet and feels intimate. It's not cheap but worth the money spent. Enjoy!!!

Upon entering we immediately knew we were in for a wonderful meal. The ambiance was very romantic with candle lit tables, soft lighting and sculptured arched ceilings. The outstanding service delivered creative and tasteful foods. The chef sent over a mushroom Ravioi topped with black truffle which was delicious . My first course was an outstanding Fusilli pasta and my main course was a double thick cut veal chop which was also delicious.
I finished with a caramelized banana desert with Vanilla Gelato. finishing off a wonderful evening.

Scalini Fedeli is a treat, particularly for a special occasion. Despite the fixed price, the "3-course" dinner is enhanced with so many "amuse bouche" that it really isn't so expensive.
We are always delighted with the service and our experience that, in this elegant and formal-seeming setting, the service is always fun and easy, while providing everything one could possible think of, resulting in a truly satisfying overall experience.

I liked the ambiance. There are not many restaurants in New York where you can have a quiet conversation. Nice atmosphere and great service. Unfortunately, I can't say the same about food. It's very unimaginative. I have a feeling it was prepared earlier and just heated when you order it. $75 prix fixe menu is definitely overpriced. Even with intermediate "complements of the chief" it's not good quality. Also, the wine list is extensive, but you can hardly find any red wines for less than $150. Wines are also somewhat overpriced.
