Italian

An Italian expression that means “little shoe” – or the shape bread takes when used to soak up a dish — Scarpetta represents the pure pleasure of savoring a meal down to its very last taste. Amongst many accolades, Scarpetta NYC received a three-star review from The New York Times and a nomination for Best New Restaurant in the country from the James Beard Foundation in 2009.

    for an upscale restaurant , I felt the value wasnt there- food was warm and not hot, nothing of the food jumped out to be fantastic. tables are very close together - when there was other options to sit people during the time we were there- but sat people NEXT to us anyway- which felt as if we were out to dinner with the couple next to us

    Booked Scarpetta for a dinner with family, read the reviews prior and felt it was the perfect place for an elevated Italian dinner. Arrived early and initially they tried seating us outside the dining room and I refused to sit at the high top bar table for a family dinner. We waited a little longer and had wonderful drinks at the bar, the ambience was classy, dark and vibrant. It was pretty packed for a Monday night, impressive given the Pandemic and a week day. Food wasn’t phenomenal but definitely flavorful, fresh and unique to most Italian restaurants in NYC, I genuinely enjoyed the ambience and energy. The service most definitely needs more professionalism, they cut off my father as he was trying to order desert and they brought the check a little too early. I recommend the razor clams, pastas and wagyu beef! Definitely recommend for a date night, girls night and dinner with the family!

    I’ve been there multiple times and tonight was a disappointing experience. The waitress was so inattentive and didn’t know what she was doing. We asked for bread and water refills multiple times that never came. When our second course came, we had leftover dirty plates from the appetizers and she asked us if we wanted to swap our plates, as all of the waiters stood there with pasta. We then ordered two espresso martinis. 15 minutes later we ordered a decaf for someone with a heart problem. Bartender then tried to serve it and confirmed it was not decaf. She then tried to convince me that someone else drank the decaf instead of her making a mistake. Terrible service but the food was still consistent.

    We went to Scarpetta for a friend's birthday, with six of us in the party. The food was outstanding, if somewhat expensive. The service was attentive, and they remembered to serve the dessert with a candle, after I noted it on the Open Table reservation. Very nice. Like most popular New York restaurants, it was very loud and hard to hear one another, which wasn't helped by the fairly loud music on top of the crowd. Overall, though, a great experience.

    The service staff on reservation line and at reservation desk is extremely difficult to deal with, lacks professionalism and zero empathy towards customers. I asked for 15 mins extension and was told NO. I asked if they will let my family seated as I had a 4 year old and old grandma so I could join them later and I was told NO. They kept my 4 year old and old grandma waiting until I called and yelled at the reservation. This place offers good food but overall customer experience is pathetic.

    They have a soft cocktail section which is great for those that aren't drinking. The food is amazing, the service superb, but I'm more than delighted that their alcohol free drinks are treated with the same care as their craft cocktails. Strong recommendation!

    Love dinner at Scarpetta. Brunch, however, is a waste of time and money. My girlfriend and I agree on this and we eat out 10 meals a week. I assume their chef is off on Sundays. The nice yellowtail crudo was fresh and nicely portioned but way oversalted. Why even add any salt to freah sushi grade fish? Likewise the ravioli also had way too much salt. The caponata was delicious and plentiful. At $28 the Pasta Pomodoro ( literally an appetizer portion) was tasteless and ridiculously priced. Probably this dish cost less than $5 including labor and the one leaf of basil. The menu was hardly Italian. For both food diversity, quality and value you would do better at ANY of 100 other UES or UWS brunch places PLUS a Broadway show for less cash. Again dinner at Scarpetta is wonderful. But brunch is a tasteless if not an over salted waste of money and time. Shame on the owners! If you don’t want to pay a chef for Sundays then stay closed!

    I thought that the restaurant would offer the restaurant week menu. The waiter said it expired. I ordered the pasta with basil and tomato sauce which was delicious and the cauliflower for an appetizer which also was very good. My husband ordered the short rib agnolotti. He was not impressed. The small portion did not warrant the $33 price of this dish. The service and ambience was great. In so many restaurants they blast the music. The music was pleasantly in the background.

    After we were seated the experience was fantastic, the food and wine was exceptional and our waitress was first class. The negative was we had a booking for 8:30 and we were not seated until 9:10. This is unacceptable. I get that it’s hard to move people along especially if they’re spending money and we’re just emerging from a Pandemic but if we were 15 mins late we risk losing our reservation. To make us wait 40mins while the front desk staff keep giving generic answers and not really liaising with the GM or other staff was disappointing. We were comped a dessert which was nice given the wait.

    Decor was nice. Food was good but overpriced and portions were ridiculously small. Waitress was nice but hostesses very impersonal and not accommodating. Also, they don’t believe in social distancing. The tables next to us were less than 3 feet away. I do not think we will be back, there are many restaurants in the city much better than this one.
