The meatball appetizer was amazing! My fiancé got chicken parm which was delicious but my meal, the pumpkin ravioli was very disappointing. It was in a butter sage sauce but it came out just in a bowl of what tasted like pure melted butter and was extremely oily.

Scarlattos is extremely convenient to most of the theater district. It is for that reason (and the delicious food of course) that it will continue to be our go-to pre-theater restaurant!!

Fun Place

The restaurant serves generous portions of tasty food. Service is very good.
If they could only put some fabric in the walls, it might not be as noisy. The restaurant was half full but very noisy. I can only imagine how noisy it eould be if it were full.

We love to visit this restaurant when we have a play to see that is close by. The servers are great and they make sure to get you out in time to make your curtain. The food is delicious and there are always great choices available. This time I had the striped bass special that came with jumbo shrimp on a bed of broccoli rabe. My appetizer was the beet salad with goat cheese which is one of my favorites. For dessert my husband and I shared the cappuccino semi freddo which was the perfect ending to a delicious meal. We will definitely go back.

Food was good, excellent service and reasonable cost. Vibrant atmosphere and perfect spot for pre theatre dinner. Our reservation was at 6. Seated right away, service efficient but not rushed and made our show in plenty of time.

Although the food was good, the service was far from acceptable. The waiter was inattentive and we had to ask for some bread several times.

I asked for my leftover food to be taken home. the waiter threw it out. However, the management did make a new platter for me to take home, and this was very appreciated.

I was most disappointed, since I had been going to Scarlattos before it moved to the new location. I much preferred everything about the old location.

This is a very nice and charming restaurant in the heart of the Theater District. Walk down a couple of steps in a townhouse on 46th Street and you enter the restaurant. The room is charming and the waitstaff is friendly and professional. If you are there for pre-Theater, the staff will be sure to get you out on time.

For starters we split the Portobello alla Griglia, Grilled Portobello mushrooms, ripened tomato and melted sheep cheese. It was excellent and enough to share. Our main courses were Pappardelle alla Bolognese, Homemade pappardelle with Bolognese sauce and Chicken alla Griglia, Rosemary grilled chicken paillard, potato and mixed greens. We both enjoyed our meals very much. We will definitely return.

We were looking for a typical NYC Italian eatery for a girls' night and Scarlatto delivered. We had a cozy table with attentive servers. The food was delicious and portioned perfectly - we had ravioli and chicken picatta. Dessert was yummy although the servings were too small to share.

We had a lovely pre-theatre meal at Scarlatto. We chose this restaurant because we wanted Italian food in that specific area. The three of us really enjoyed our meals, but the only thing that was missing was more interaction with the staff. The service was good, but our servers seemed a bit timid. Was looking for a real Italian New York experience.

The restaurant was very crowded (pre-theater) and extremely noisy. Unfortunately, the waitress forgot to bring the bottle of wine we ordered. We were finished with the salad by the time she finally delivered it (after we reminded her), but the pappardelle bolognese was delicious! Even though we'd said it was our anniversary when we made the reservation, no mention was made of it by the staff. Overall, good for pre-theater since it was within walking distance and service was fast enough to make the show without rushing.

Food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. The service needs some training in how to conduct the time in between meals. There were only five people in the restaurant when we arrived and they seemed to be in a rush right from the moment we sat down. Very uncomfortable when they want to take the dishes when there is food still in them and obviously we were still eating. If they can fix that, its a great place to eat and the quality of the food has nothing to do with the service. Fix customer care and everything will take care of it self. Yes I would recommend this place to a friend, but I would let them know to tell the staff to take it easy.

The food was good. Customer relations could be better. I had reserved a table and indicated we were celebrating a birthday. I also told the maitre d as soon as we checked in and also the server about the birthday celebration. Nothing was done. In the end, I had to ask if they had a small dessert made with a candle so we could sing to my son. I also paid for the cake, which at other places the restaurant would have given it without asking and without charging for it.
