All diners were quite satisfied. The calamari was crispy, not greasy like in a lot of places. Gnocchi was light and delicious. Both people who had rack of lamb loved it. Saltimbocca was on a generous bed of fresh spinach. Red snapper also not a skimpy portion. Desserts were good. . Even had fun waiting outside for our table to be ready. [There was a medical incident which delayed our seating just a bit]. But the hostess couldn't have been more pleasant and the service was good - attentive, but not overly so. Over all very pleased to get this meal in a touristy area.

Very good typical northern Italian fare cooked well and served expertly. We had a noisy obnoxious table next to ours which was annoying but not the restaurants fault.

We loved our dinner at Scarlatto’s! The only small problem was the noise level was very loud but that is not the restaurant’s fault. Just very loud and happy customers. Not great for trying to have conversation.

If you're looking for an Italian restaurant in the Theater District, this is it. On the other side of 8th Avenue from Times Square, its got a great location, and a very nice menu. Our 5:15 reservation was ready when we arrived, and we found the ambiance to be what you'd expect. The food was good and hot, the wine list was varied, and the price was reasonable. My only comment would pertain to the service, and I suppose its the nature of the beast when dining before an 8pm curtain. I made the reservation for 5:15 so that in case our table wasn't ready, or in case the service was slow, we'd still have time to get to the theater. But in cases like ours, where our table WAS ready at 5:15m and the service was NOT slow, I got the feeling they were trying to turn the table one more time before curtain, so we felt rushed. Mains arrived while appetizers were still on the table, fork was barely down from the main, and the dessert menu was in front of us. Waiter was rushed to the point where he forgot to bring the tea my wife ordered with dessert. I'd certainly go back to Scarllatto for lunch, or later in the evening, after the nearby curtains had already gone up.

We went for Valentine’s Day and were able to make a last minute reservation and were greeted promptly & politely upon arrival. Food and service was average and there was a good amount of options on the menu. We enjoyed the ambiance and comfort of the restaurant — a cute place to dine.

Valentine's dinner. From the moment we arrived, the hostess was very warm and welcoming. She sat us earlier than expected and our waiter arrived within 2 minutes. Service was attentive and professional the whole evening. Wine selections and drink options are typical for this type of restaurant. Food was the standout. Crab cake appetizer was the best I have ever had (recommend by the waiter). The dinner specials for V Day were excellent. Spinach and ricotta stuffed tortelini with prosciutto and cream sauce had amazing flavor. Dessert selections were quite good, we shared a tiramisu that was also probably the best I have ever had. Overall, it was a very nice experience and worth going again.

We really enjoyed our pre-theatre dinner at Scarlatto. Service was friendly and spot-on. Everything was served piping hot from the kitchen. Food was delicious with great menu items and specials to choose from. Decent choice of wines by the glass. We would definitely recommend and return.

It was Valentine’s Day, which can be a nightmare in a restaurant, instead we had a lovely table, a delicious dinner, and got out right on time to catch our 7:00PM curtain time. Kudos.

We were in NY for our Westminster show and came to enjoy our dogs win here. It was an amazing find and we loved everything about it. Each item on menu we had was par excellent. Our only regret is that we wish this restaurant was close to us in Philadelphia.

This was my first visit to Scarlatto’s since they moved to this location. The venue is inviting and pleasing to the eye. The service was excellent and we neither felt rushed nor forgotten, as we enjoyed our pre-theater lunch. I wish their menu offered some more WW friendly option, but the extra points in the veal saltanbocca were worth the splurge. Wish they offered price-fixe options at lunch, as in their previous location, but, the quality and authenticity of the Italian dishes we ordered were perfect. We will definitely return.

A perfect spot for pre-theatre dinner . All the dishes were delicious and the pasta was very fresh. The only downside was there is no bar to wait for others to arrive. I highly recommend.

Everyone was very nice and service, once it began, was good. The problem was that we waited 45 minutes past our reservation time to be seated and then another 15 to see our waiter. My husband had to go ask the hostess for our waiter to come over because we had a show to attend. We had made our reservation for 2 1/2 hours before showtime and ended up just making it. Food once we got it was good.

Good value for the money. Service was good and we were not rushed. Portion sizes were very good. The prices for many of the dishes need to be revised on the menus that are on Open Table and the Scarlatto website. The menu prices were considerably higher for most dishes, especially the entrees. The prices for the on-line menus need to be updated as they are inaccurate and somewhat misleading. There shouldn't be surprises about this.

Fantastic spot for a pre- or post-theatre meal! The food and service were both excellent. Tables are packed pretty tight and the noise level is pretty high when the place is busy. While I wouldn't recommend for an intimate or quiet date - it's perfect for a night out with friends. Will definitely go again when next in New York!

We have eaten many time here. Our past visit was not as usual. One of ordered the Stripe Steak. Sauce & steak had no taste, steak was dry while it medium as ordered. At $30 it was a big disappointment. Also ordered the Caesar Salad. Lettuce was brown & dressing poor.

I’d give them a try again, but buyer beware - if your food is not right send it back, which we didn’t do. Didn’t want to be confronted by waiter saying “what do you mean something is wrong”

Our service was good, I'm glad we had a reservation and got there on time because the place filled up quickly. My husbands branzino was delicious and my pesto pasta with shrimp was fair. The pesto was kind of bland. I had an old fashioned which was very nice. We would return next time we're in the area.
