Food was good. Bread basket would benefit from variety of bread instead of the ordinary Italian bread.
Great pre-theatre dinner - really enjoyed it!
Nice lunch before our show. Waiters and busboy were very nice. Served a basket of crunchy crust bread w butter. Oil on table. Varied menu. My DH had a hamburger which he liked. He thought FF weren’t crispy enough. I had chicken with salad and potatoes. Huge portions for me for lunch. I noticed most people had pasta dishes. I e been to this restaurant at a previous location.
Pleasant lunch and more than enough time to be at show on time
This is the best theater area restaurant. Great chefs, staff, everything!
Good. Efficient. Great service.
Enjoyed our visit. Not crowded at all. Had some difficulty finding the location as the had moved and addresses pulled up incorrectly. Had a pasta dish that was excellent. The only reason for the 4 stars is my sister dish was it as expected .
Mediocre food. Too much butter on my ravioli and they were kinda stuck together like they had been sitting for awhile. My husband's gnocchi were mediocre too. Tender but sauce was to thick. Great respectful service. But in all fairness, it was very busy in there so the cooks probably couldn't take time with every order. They were careful to get you out in time for your show.
I thought the service was poor and the food was just okay. Would not go back. There are so many other choices in NYC
Very quick service almost too quick. New restaurant was very nice tho noisy. Lunch was fair to good
We were big fans of the former location. New location is smaller and more cramped, even by NYC standards. Food was still very good but hard to carry on a conversation due to noise level and proximity of tables.
The food was great. The place was quiet because it was a Monday night. Ricardo was our waiter /bartender. He was very personable and a very hard worker. We loved the Buratta appetizer and the rigatoni carbonara.
Absolutely fabulous!!!!! My husband and I went after seeing A Bronx Tale for my birthday celebration. They made me an awesome strawberry Martini and decorated a plate with homemade tarimasu cake. It was delicious as well as the homemade pasta and gnocchi. The food was out of this world! I will definitely go again and recommend this restaurant highly.
Excellent as always!
Scarlatto has recently move do this new location. We find them to be one of the better all around values in the NYC Theatre district, especially on restaurant row. This time we had our 6 yr old granddaughter with us, and although they do not have a specific kids menu, they were able to accommodate her with a plate of simple pasta marinara, and the waiter went out of his way to make a special chocolate milk, complete with whipped cream, cherries and a decorative flower. The service here is always, prompt, impeccable and excellent!
Loved this restaurant ! Food was delicious and everyone had a good time. Dessert of profiteroles was super delicious and my pasta dish which had asparagus and peas in a yummy tomato sauce was one of my favorite pasta meals ever !
Delicious food and very attentive service makes this restaurant a great place for pre-post theater. The grilled branzino is a must and we will definitely be back for more!
Great move to Restaurant Row.
Salmon topped with Carmelized Onions was REALLY good and portion too much to finish. $25. Spinach it came with was flavorless but still edible. Will get again.
Server didn't believe we were told when made reservation and again day before when hostess called to confirm, that I was told we could get 5 separate checks but I guess he checked and was told that, as at end of meal he brought them.
Mediocre northern Italian. Mussels were far from fresh and broth was boring. Main course decent but unremarkable. Server was excellent, however, and prices were very reasonable by NYC standards.
The hostess sat us promptly even with the restaurant being crowded. One of the members of the party asked for a dish not on the menu and the waiter was able to honor this request. Due to the special request the meal took longer than expected to arrive, we asked the waiter to bring the check at that time - he nodded but did not bring the check. Several more times we asked for the check but did not get it, we even asked the hostess to intervene (and observed her speaking wit( our waiter) still no check. It wasn’t until we stood and put our coats on that the waiter approached us and asked if we were ready for our check! Another wait period and with only 10 minutes until curtain call he finally brought the check. Nice restaurant, good food, but not worth the service and attitude.
Excellent Food and Service. Had the fettuccine with mussels ,shrimps and clams .out of this world
The restaurant is very cramped. I could hardly get into my seat without bumping the glasses on the table next to us. The tables were so close you felt like you couldn’t have a conversation. Our salad was good, bread delicious. My gnocchi was not cooked enough. Many were extremely doughy. This was my second time dining here. The first time was fantastic and I was extremely disappointed overall this time around.
All four meals at our table were excellent.
Food was very mediocre, and priced too high for the quality of the food. Service was lovely. Was the least of the three restaurants we tried for pre-theater dining.
My boyfriend and I were so happy with our choice. The food was amazing. It took a little while for them to take our order, but once they did the food came fast and hot. It was a great place for pre-theatre dinner. We had a reservation at 5:30, and had more than enough time for dinner and dessert before an 8:00 curtain.
Great service, wonderful food! Love it here!
We were very disappointed. We had loved Scarlatto in the old location, but this seems much smaller and the tables closer together. The food is still good, but the noise level was awful, and we were rushed through the meal by a waiter who seemed to be sprinting the whole time we were there. Not a pleasant experience at all. We probably would not go back.
Great location in the theater district. Food was terrific, service was speedy. I wish they had a prix fix dinner option.
We had a reservation and were seated immediately. I was able to order a pasta and they were very accommodating and added shrimp at no extra charge. Portion size is perfect some might say large. We shared the Mushroom Truffle pasta and Balsamic glazed Salmon. Both were cooked perfectly and were delicious. Would definitely recommend before or after a show. Was a little disappointed they did to have a price fixx. Prices were fine but like to have that option before a show. Will be going back soon.
A beautiful little authentic spot in Manhattan. Food was amazing!! Still thinking about the pumpkin ravioli in brown butter sage sauce. Delicious!
We went here before we went to a show on Broadway. When we came in it was not crowded but by the time we left it was packed. Though the restaurant was crowded we were still able to have a conversation. We had the gnochi, lasagna, and pumpkin ravioli. They were all very well prepared and delicious. For dessert we had tiramisu and that was excellent.
The food and the service was excellent. We arrived at the restaurant a half hour earlier and they were able to accommodate us. Would highly recommend this for a pre-theatre spot.
Good food, great service.
Wonderful food. Huge portions. Reasonably priced for nyc. Went for pretheater dinner and worked out fine.
Great for pre/post theatre dining. Service was fine. Nothing outstanding on menu!
My family went here for dinner for my birthday after seeing Phantom. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day.
The staff was wonderful and the food was amazing.
Authentic Italian. Dinner was delicious and the homemade tiramisu was to die for.
I can’t wait to come back here again.
Spinach salad was excellent. Pasta w/lamb ragu was very tasty, but lamb was fatty. Striped bass w/black olives (expecting livornese) had only a tsp of minced olives. Food was rushed--taking my last bite of salad as the entree was slipped in front of me. Tables for 2 are very close, so you get to clearly hear your neighbors' conversation.
I have been going to Scarlatto for many years, and I had marked it as one of my "favorites" with Open Table. In December they sent e-mail announcing that they were moving to a wonderful new location and offering me 15% off at my next visit. I made that visit on March 24th. I was looking forward to it, but that was a mistake. First of all, as far as I could see, the location is not better, but smaller and more cramped than the original location. When my friend and I were seated, it felt as if we were joining a couple who was already in the middle of their meal. The tables are entirely too close to one another, even for a small, NYC restaurant. Second, we ordered a bottle of wine that was listed as costing something around $38 (I don't remember exactly). The waiter soon arrived with a $44 bottle of wine, explaining that they were out of what we ordered. He did not mention the difference in price. (My friend later saw the identical bottle of wine on sale at Wegman's for $9.99.) We witnessed the same thing happen to another couple who was seated next to us later in the meal. Third, the food was okay, but not as phenomenally good as I had come to expect at Scarlatto's. Fourth and worst, when I showed the waiter my e-mail offering me the discount, he told me his boss said he could not accept the offer. I asked to see the manager, who I later learned is also the owner. He explained that he had to have a printed copy of the offer, even though the necessity to print out and present the coupon was not stated anywhere on the offer. I pointed that fact out to the owner/manager Tom, to no avail. He later came back with a printed copy of the offer stapled to someone else's bill to show me what one would look like. I assured him I know what a print-out looks like, but that one had not been called for. He told me to return with my receipt and a print-out for a 15% refund. I will return for my refund, but I do not expect to dine at Scarlatto again.
We had great hopes for this restaurant after reading other reviews. Salad appetizer portion was ridiculously small. They should have been embarrassed to charge $10 for a side salad that was literally 12 pieces of lettuce. Chicken parmigiana was not good. Salmon was pretty good and pasta was good. Would not rush back, too many other good restaurants in the area.
