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.

Everything was amazing including their recommendations for wine and entrees. Each dish got better and better as the night progressed and the amuse Bouches were a delightful surprise.

Cozy, delightful restaurant in TriBeCa. The food is delicious. Can get louder as the evening unfolds and wine flows. Is there any restaurant in NYC that understands/adjusts size of individual portions based on number of courses delivered? Less is always better - as long as it is enough. No great restaurant should ever serve more than enough as determined by the amount of food delivered to each diner over the course of the meal.

This restaurant is a "shadow" of it's former self. The "death rattle" of the place is palpable. While the service was very good, the food was terrible. The duck leg was "mush" with sauce sloshed over it to cover the taste. The duck breast was gristle. The lamb was OK, sauce mundane. Worse of all, the experience was extremely expensive. The wine was excellent, but for the price, that was the expectation. Sorry to have to write this, but our visit was extremely disappointing. We wish this restaurant well, but we will not return.

Every time I eat here, I encounter dishes that are simply memorable. The amuse bouche of a mushroom filled ravioli with a light cream sauce starts your dining adventure off right! The NY strip competed with all the great steak house choices in the city, perfectly prepared and seasoned. It doesn't matter whether you go fish, meat or pasta, your senses of taste and smell will be satiated beyond measure. The service is wonderful, with a clear ethos within the organization to smile and treat people with warmth and care. I am grateful for this fine restaurant!

Had the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairing. Was good but no dishes blew us away and a couple were mediocre at best. Wines were good but overpriced. Nice room but overall disappointing as a premier experience.

Restaurant was still decorated for Valentines Day so it made the setting extra romantic. The service was very professional and attentive and the waiter had good knowledge of the menu and took time to nicely explain his favorites which we followed and every dish was superior quality and exceeded our expectations. We have dined around at the best and Scalini Fedeli did not disappoint.

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.

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!!!!!
