Still great!

I last dined at (and thoroughly enjoyed) Scalini Fedeli several times after it first opened in the mid- to late 1990's. I recently returned for the first time in at least 15 years, and I'm glad I did. The quality of the food and service remain top notch, and the wine list has enough variety to... read more

Food is good - if somewhat over rated. The place is crowded, tables are close together - like being in a restaurant in Manhattan. Which is understandable in Manhattan, not in Chatham. And while the place looks charming from the outside, its nothing special inside. Maybe it is an issue of too high expectations - but this restaurant gets rated... More

For $59 on a Saturday night, you get a 5 course meal, with 2 courses you don't get to choose(A piece of shrimp and a Sorbet). There are a few upcharges depending on what you get. The food was outstanding. Every dish was great and the variety of the menu was extensive. Glasses of wine were a reasonable 10 bucks.... More

This is a very expensive restaurant in a beautiful old house. The room was lovely but noisy. The menu is a price fixed one at $59. The choices of appetizers, entrees and desserts was extensive tho. The wine steward came over immediately but we weren't ready. Then it took another 20 minutes for him to return. Flagging him down for... More

Always on the prowl for a new restaurant, while surfing the internet I came across Scalini Fedeli. The renovated farmhouse setting sounded as if it would be a nice touch to the evening, but once inside I didn't feel the farmhouse, high vaulted arch ceilings???? Tuscany style????? Really in a farmhouse??? Who's farmhouse was it Liberace's??? I'm not implying that... More

We were repeat customers here for dinner. Great friendly service with authentic Italian with matching selection of wines is hallmark for this place. I had ordered Burata cheese for apetizer followed by lobster in a white sauce for main course. This time I found the lobsters were a bit chewy and were not fresh.

Great, very attentive service. And what is even better is the great, authentic food. We had scaloppini caspaccio, chicken liver as starters and both was great and well seasoned. Main courses equally good with perfect veal chops and branzini filet. Desert was a tiramisu like in Rome. I rarely had a restaurant were all dishes were equally great. And looking... More

We have been going here for years but have not been in a while because we felt that it was too stuffy on our last visit. I am so glad that we went back this week for a special occasion. The food here is superb (just reading the menu is an culinary treat) and the service was impeccable-attentive but not... More

This place was fantastic. Saturday night was price fix at 60 pp and worth every cent. Attentive service and flavorful food with every bite. The decor is a bit wethered but I really didn't care. Don't miss this gem avoid the mall restaurants for a authentic Italian meal. Side note the Rissoto was outstanding!

We were visiting in New Jersey and some friends took us here for dinner. At first, I was disappointed that we were not going into NYC for dinner but now I know why they selected this restaurant. Some of the best Italian food that I have ever eaten.
