 (Philadelphia)·Dined 3 days ago

2nd time at Scalini Fedeli on a date with my wife. We had the 3-course prix fixe, which was greatly enhanced by several small bites, compliments of the chef and served throughout the meal. My braised short ribs were as good as any I’ve had, and my wife loved her halibut with an orange sauce. Service was excellent and our primary server was funny and delightful. Glad we returned to this lovely restaurant.

Everything about this restaurant was lovely and relaxed in an unstuffy way. Loved the ambiance, the food and the service. Everyone was happy with what they ordered and we had more food than we could eat. The menu is 3 courses prix fixe and with many good options for each course. We could hear each other and the the tables were nicely spaced. We will definitely return!

 (Vancouver)·Dined on December 17, 2017

Had read wonderful reviews, so went here for my birthday. The bar area is exceedingly small and uncomfortable, but luckily our table was ready less then 10 minutes past our reservation (8:30), so we didn't have to wait long. The main dining room is lively, and a little loud, but it won't impact your ability to converse comfortably with your table mates. The service is friendly and authentic, with a few wonderful surprises thrown in. Food is terrific, and the pasta is fresh and tasty. Overall, a fine place that I would recommend for its great food and NY ambience.

Overall the Italian food and service were quite good. But one guest out of 4 was disappointed with his steak which the waiter exchanged for the halibut entrée which pleased him. Also the waiter was very generous with after dinner drinks on the house. For me the butternut agnolotti pasta dish with sage butter and the sliced veal chop were excellent. My wife enjoyed her composite salad of 3 varieties and her halibut entrée. Also high marks for the desserts especially the mascarpone and ricotta cheesecake. Our bottle of Montepulciano wine from Abruzze for $70 lacked body and was sl acidic.

The food, service and ambience were fantastic. The wine list was amazing but VERY expensive.
The cocktail was extremely mediocre for $17 but other wise we enjoyed our evening a lot.
I would have a cocktail elsewhere next time.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on November 30, 2017

The service was attentive, staff was knowledgeable , ambiance was nice enough. The food was lacking. The amuse bouche was a mushroom ravioli with truffle cream sauce (foamed?) it needed salt or a nice shaving of pecorino Romano. An amuse bouche is supposed to enhance or open your taste buds to the forthcoming food, but alas fell flat. As each course progressed most members of the party shared that the food was underwhelming - mostly in the seasoning and even the temperature of the food/plates was off as if the food was sitting on a under heated pass before being served. The star of the meal was dessert with some inventive creations and incorporations of gelato (nicely done l) with some of the desserts. All in all there are lots of good places to eat so you can skip this one.

Outstanding meal and service at this charming restaurant.
We loved our dinner experience here.
The price fixe meal is one if the best dinners I've had in NYC.
The ravioli starter gas divine followed the the Artic Char that was delicate and flavorful.
If your looking a quiet evening out with great food...this is the place.
I'll be coming back!
