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.

    Celebrated our Mother’s birthday. Great food with excellent service. EVERYONE loved their primi (and we all ordered something different for sampling as well). Secondis were very good. I’d consider requesting a second primi instead, though. And desserts were fantastic. Overall a great night.

    Having eaten at some of Mr. Cetrulo's other restaurants, I knew the quality of food and service was going to be superb. Even still, I was blown away by the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff and left speechless after each bite of food. The egg yolk raviolo and porcini ravioli held up to their hype and were divine. The lamb chops were the best I've ever had and could be eaten as is but come with a sauce that make the dish even more special. And I cannot forget the desserts and drinks. The bananas over phyllo were out of this world. Yes I ate soo much but every bit was worth it.

    This restaurant is outstanding!! Superb service, very attractive waiters even the bus boys are very friendly and thoughtful. I've been here twice, and the food and service gets better and better. They even gave us a glass of champagne and toasted with us while we were waiting to be seated. The food was delicious and well portioned. Will definitely be going back!!

    Fantastic food, great service and very good value. We tried four different pasta dishes and they were all amazing. Fish and chicken entrees were excellent and so were the sorbets and chocolate dessert. Only point for improvement would be better selection of wines by the glass.

    Food, ambiance, service and overall experience was outstanding. Drinks were ridiculously overpriced and were not amazing. For $25 a drink, it should have been mixology standards. That was disappointing. However, outside of that, I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant.

    We dined, my wife and I, at Scalini Fedeli on my birthday weekend. We stayed at the Smyth Tribeca and took a short walk to the restaurant. What a pleasant surprise. I never go to a restaurant without researching it but this experience exceeded my expectations. From the moment you walk through the door you are treated like royalty. The staff could not do enough. The food was unbelievable for The appetizers and all of the side tasting dishes they keep bringing out to the main course and dessert were all delicious. It was my birthday and unlike other restaurants the wait staff quietly came to the table with a candle and wished me a happy birthday. You don’t need a special occasion to dine at Scalini Fedeli. You won’t be disappointed.

    As always, dining at Scalini Fideli was a pleasure and a treat. For more than 30 years Scalini dining has been a pleasure on all fronts. If there is a another major upscale restaurant in NY about which you can safely say that, I don’t know it.

    Scalini Fedeli was a wonderful experience. Being NYC and discovering excellent Italian cuisine was not at all a given. Excellent food, almost perfect wine list (essential but really representative of the excellent Italian production and with fair prices) and really good service. Definitely recommended place!!!
