My waiter, Sal, spoke to me about preferred dishes and preferred wines. He convinced me to try the Kampachi, and his wine recommendation was great. (I should have listed to him the first time). I had a view of the Christmas lights in Rittenhouse square, and I was at a window seat. I plan to return to visit the bar for a happy hour soon. Great if you have a relative with walking difficulties, ramp and elevator access. Close to: all Rittenhouse Square attractions, churches, shopping, The Curtis Center for Music, Sansom Street theaters and comedy shows, 1812 Productions, The Mutter Museum, 1st City troop (Armory), Day spas and the Park itself.

The food was good. Very small portions. We ordered the “tasting for two” priced at $55.00. This “tasting” as it was called would only feed one person. Very overpriced for the amount of food. Tasting plate for 2 is pictured below. Will not be back.

There was a lack of vegetarian options across the board.
The menu seemed a bit fussy and overly complicated. So the food seemed overwhelmed by the variety, seasonings.
The booth was super fun and cozy and elegant.
Our server was attentive and friendly to the perfect degree.

A really extraordinary meal. An excellent Old Fashioned. Polenta with mushrooms that was so very good. Duck and foie gras ravioli I couldn’t stop eating. Only the gelato was merely very good. What a find!

One word. Fantastic. This a great high - end restaurant across from Rittenhouse Square. We had a table near the window so looked out on a beautiful Saturday night.
The service was great. The food was out of this world. We have three different pasta dishes - each extremely unique with homemade pasta. Certainly a special occasion kind of place.

The food was incredible but the service was disappointing. We showed up and was told they didn’t have a reservation for us. We spelled the name and they were adamant we had no reservations until I pointed at my name on the list. We didn’t get drinks until well over 30 minutes of sitting. Our drinks were incorrect. We asked for more bread to hold us over until the food came, bread never came. It was disappointing trying to show our friend the Philly restaurant scene and we have to explain that this isn’t normal. I hope things turn around, but we will not be returning.

Class defined. Old world hand crafted cocktails and good bartenders to make them, wine list is a bit shorter than you’d think it would be … House made / homemade pasta dishes should not be missed, even if you order as a side or an appetizer. Too good not to sample. Window tables for two are romantic …

Disappointed in unusually poor service. Poor timing, "lost wine", inattentive service. I have had many wonderful meals at Scarpetta- this time I was embarrassed to bring guests there.

Terrible service and food was not of equivalent standards of other locations. Do not recommend. We waited 30-minutes to be served, there was no communication amongst the staff. Not once were we checked on throughout the meal. Food was over dressed and under seasoned.

Food was amazing!!! Waiter was awful. Spoke to Manager about it. Never came to table after order was placed. Took 20 minutes after we were done for him to come back to table. Never ordered dessert since it took so long which we were looking forward to. Do not not how they are though.

The quality of food was definitely not what it used to be. The bread served was cold in the middle like it had been frozen and the rest of the food didn’t seem very fresh or of good quality. The cocktails were very good though. Maybe just enjoy a drink at the bar and skip the food.
