The owner of the restaurant was meeting most people at the restaurant which I feel is not super common in Manhattan. He was very welcoming and the waitstaff was also great! Food was really good. Great drinks

Scarlatto's is my favorite place to go in NYC. I have brought several friends and family members and all have been very happy.
This last visit one of the waiters had called in sick at the last minute and Fernando was waiting tables alone. He did a fantastic job. There were several tables and he was still able to provide great service in a friendly professional manner. He stayed calm and took care of everyone.
The food as always was wonderful. Beautiful presentation of everything, especially the salmon.

We met friends for lunch before the girls and guys headed off in two different directions for the theater. Our lunch was really enjoyable. The service is great. You can tell the Wait staff you have theater tickets and they will get you out in time, WITHOUT making you feel rushed. Very pleasant atmosphere all around.

Good if you are in a rush before theater. Food was uneven--fantastic jumbo shrimp and beans appetizer (large enough for a meal), very ordinary linguine with clams. OK burger, dryish main fish dish. Servers too quite to remove plates while some guests are still dining. Very noisy pre-theater, probably a lot quieter during theater hours.

We had very nice meal. It was a warm day and the staff finally understood we were serious about turning on the AC. Our table was ready and our pre-theater meal was nicely paced. all the food arrived hot. The lasagne was a great portion and nicely seasoned. A veal dish was tender and a spicy seafood and pasta dish was nicely prepared. The rissoto special could have used more crab.
I would return to this restaurant. It is a good value for the theater district, and the service was terrific-from ordering to the food all arriving at once, to nicely made cocktails.

What a great surprise! We had low expectations for a restaurant in the middle of the theater district and we were so pleasantly proven wrong. The food was really excellent. Delicate homemade fettuccine with very well-balanced, light mushroom sauce was the standout. We had an excellent Sardinian wine. It took a while for the waiter to come to our table when we got there (we had to ask the hostess to get him), but once he came he was very nice and reasonably attentive.

Very odd experience. The waiter was very nice took our order and got our drinks to us quickly. I had the pear and Gorgonzola salad which was just okay, I’ve had better, but I was still excited for the main course to come out. Around the time you’d expect our meals to be ready the waiter came over to say the kitchen was having difficulty with the stoves gas, and was unable to cook. They didn’t charge us but we did waste 45 minutes when we had a show to go to. Left us scrambling to find something in time.

Food was delicious. Obviously a pre-theater crowd so very attentive service to get your order in and then a little lax after we ate. All together a very nice spot with good food. It got a little loud but I imaging it would be less hectic after 8:00 when the shows kick in. I would go back.

We started with a Buratta appetizer which was unbelievably delicious. My companions had never had it before and were very enthusiastic. I had the swordfish with asparagus and roasted potatoes and it was cooked to perfection. One friend had linguini and clams and another had lobster ravioli and all plates were clean. We especially commented on their home made parsley spread that they serve with their delicious bread. I would certainly come back again.

Great authentic experience. My one and only issue was ordering for my picky toddlers. I asked for plain spaghetti, without sauce. They brought spaghetti in a white garlic sauce with basil. It was tasty to me, but they wouldn’t eat it. They told me to tell them plain next time instead of offering new. I’m sure that’s exactly what I had done. They ate some bread and were ok. Otherwise, everything was more than great.

We celebrated a friend’s retirement lunch and had the whole restaurant to ourselves for the most part. The waiter was attentive, patient and polite. The food was fine - salmon a bit over cooked but the carmelized onion topping was tasty. It was perfect for what we wanted but I wouldn’t go back.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. It gets quite crowded but our waiter made certain to check in on us at all times. the wine was great and apps were fantastic as was the dessert. My only small issue was that I have allergies (onion, garlic) and while they were very understanding of my situation, the food that came was cooked rather blandly. I'll never understand why chefs cannot substitute certain sauces instead of simply leaving them off.

Food was outstanding. Possibly the best salmon (prepared with carmelized onions) I ever had. Service, once it started, was very good. But we had to wait 40 minutes for someone to take out order - and only because we ended up flagging another waiter down. When your patrons have show tickets (and even when they don't) that's just not right.
