Scalini Fedeli ranked among New York's finest restaurants since its opening in early 2004, taking Italian cuisine to new heights. Rewarded with the highest overall ratings in the Zagat Survey, Scalini Fedeli has been granted one star by the Michelin guide in it's inaugural 2006 issue. The inviting decor features vaulted ceilings and European antiques and provides the perfect setting for chef Michael Cetrulo's delightful cuisine which offers the finest ingredients coupled with a confidence and grace that ensures your meal will be a memorable one. Menu highlights include soft egg yolk raviolo with ricotta and truffle butter and New York's finest venison chop in a port wine and balsamic vinegar sauce with toasted hazelnuts, sautéed spinach and roasted Mission figs. The 350-bottle wine list encompasses all regions of Italy but also does justice to the best American wineries.

The food was wonderful! I would recommend coming hungry. The chef provided additional treats with the fixed price menu that were delicious! My husband did that option and I just ordered an entree. The food was plentiful.

Best Italian restaurant in Manhattan hands-down when you go you expect a three-course meal prefix but they sent out so many little extras it’s almost like a tasting menu , A+ across-the-board , Look forward to returning soon

Whenever we have visitors from out of town - we make a reservation here for dinner. The service is outstanding and the food is consistently good. The menu always has a big variety to choose from so there’s something for everyone- and the price is phenomenal. We’ve never had a disappointing meal here- and offering to pick up the check for your whole party is painless.

Superb! The food and service are always the best. This is consistently one of the best restaurants in NYC. The maitre d Nick makes everyone feel welcome and knows how to pair the best wine with your meal.

Absolutely spectacular! I can't say enough good things about Scalini Fedeli. Every aspect of the experience was perfect, from Michael Cetrulo's delectable dishes (and numerous complimentary treats) , to the elegant candle-lit surroundings, to the impeccable, accommodating service. Quite simply, Scalini Fedeli belongs in the pantheon of the very best restaurants in NYC.

I chose this restaurant to celebrate a milestone birthday for a friend. I wanted good food, service and a place that our table of 6 would be able to hear each other speak without shouting. I have been coming here for many years and have always had great experiences. I took my boyfriend here for his last two birthdays. My friend who was celebrating her birthday really had a great experience as this was her first time at Scalini Fideli. The chef sent out about 4 amuse bouche. They were all delicious. They even sent our a mushroom risotto for the table to share. There was also an extra dessert course. The service was excellent. The dinner is a 3 course prix fixe and everyone loved what they ordered. Considering the food it is really very reasonably priced.

Scalini is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. It's my go to for special occasions, The service is always impeccable the atmosphere is elegant and the food is divine. I am never disappointed. And all things considered, their prix fixe is very reasonable. You get a lot of bang for you buck. Go and enjoy this special place.

We fully enjoyed our dinning. Arrived early - no problem. The restaurant has a Italian style decor that we liked. Some nice dishes on the menu - the ravioli was superb.
We took wine on glass - Dolcetto - that was a good match paired with the food.
Also the sweet - desert - at the was great - and we do have experts in the family. Some music int the background could be the only thing to avoid but it is nothing compared with the bad acoustics and music in most lunch and dining places in New York. Becoming a no go for people with hearing issues.

The food was amazing, the staff was totally accommodating and respectful. The cuisine was out of the ordinary and presented artistically. The veal chop was probably the best deal I’ve ever eaten.

One of our favorite “special occasion” places. Fabulous food; beautiful space; tables nicely separated; not rushed. The price fixed menu is good for the quality of the food, but the wine list could use some more reasonably priced options.

Awesome!

This genuine Tribeca gem continues to amaze! I was there with my girlfriend and we had a memorable night. They gave us the choice to pick a table. The service was impeccable and the recommendations about the food and wine spot on. The wild mushroom ravioli was out of this world and the steak with gorgonzola sauce delectable. The carbonara with truffles was one of the best dishes I ever had. We finished with the dark chocolate soufflé, which is the best in New York City. The Maitre'd sent us a moscato to finish our dining experience.
