Across from the Museum of Natural History for an Italian bite

Food is good as is the service but a bit pricey. Great location on the UWS. Local patrons generally eat here.

We were there to celebrate the graduation of our son. It is a large restaurant with very elegant and spacious sitting. The service is from very well groomed waiters and the food quality was good. The dessert is all placed on a trolley and you can actually visualize the dessert and order what you want - very tempting and delicious.

A staple in the upper west side, near both the Historical Society and the Museum of Natl History . As many reviews have mentioned this is a good place for conversation, and it is. Tables are well spaced. We were there early over a weekend and it got both older and younger patrons. ( be aware there are a number... More

My fiancé and I attended a wedding reception at Scaletta yesterday afternoon and the food and service made the affair something to remember. From the very first step into Scaletta, the wait and other staff could not be more attentive. The appetizer consisted of a combo of 3 types of pasta and all were delicious. I had a veal dish...

Food was excellent and reasonably priced. They worked with us ever step of the way and the service was beyond outstanding. The room they supplied was nicely decorated and the atmosphere was fantastic. They did an outstanding job.

First, let me say that we like this restaurant because it's not loud and you can have a conversation. The food quality is mixed. Osso bucco was just ok. Pasta special was fabulous. Asparagus appetizer was great. They forgot to bring sauce for the calamari. Service was not good. We waited repeatedly too get a waiter"s attention. The ladies' room... More

As we were seated our waiter asked us what we would like to drink. No menu, no description of offerings. We said water, and were never asked again. The specials numbered over 10, but were verbal and so hard to hear. The food was fine, but as I wriye this a few days later, have to be reminded about what... More

We went there with our son and granddaughter . Our granddaughter is only 4 and they treated her like royalty. The 3 adults ordered 3 different veal dishes and all of them were tender and delicious. It is an absolute gem.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
