Our experience was unfortunate. We waited 30 minutes for our “reserved” table, then when we were seated it was at a little table at the very entrance of the dining room. Our waiter was pushy and inattentive, It definitely was not the service we expected given the reviews . I cannot lie and say the food was bad, the food was okay, but not worth a 400$ meal. This was a very special occasion; not just Valentine’s Day but the first birthday my husband and I celebrate as a married couple. We will not be going back.

This was an amazing experience as was the previous time we dined there. A romantic setting and even wrote on our plates for our anniversary. Such warm and inviting staff and can’t forget about the food; delicious!

We really enjoyed some very creative and authentic tasting Italian dishes. There quite a variety so it’s not the same old Italian menu you usually see. On the expensive side, especially the wine bottles, but worth it. My only knock would be inflexibility. Our waiter wasn’t receptive to even the slightest change in the dish as presented in the menu.

Scalini to Heaven!
My colleagues and I were impressed by this Tribeca gem. My colleagues were late to our meeting, but the Maitre'D was a great host and entertained me at the bar, walking me through the "wine-map" of Italy...what a wine tasting! The food was a step above what you would find at other Italian restaurants in NYC; starting with the complimentary first course, wild mushroom ravioli, and finishing with the dessert (very creative!). Piero and Julius helped my guests with all their questions and their recommendations were spot-on. We will be back!

We are usually blown away by the butternut squash agnolotti. It seems the recipe may have changed and there was a side salad served on the plate that had onions and was awful for the dish. Go back to the original please!!!!!

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!
