We ate here as a group on a tour so I cant tell you what the price was. The food service and atmosphere was great.

We dined here last Saturday after a matinee performance. We were part of a bus tour, so to be honest, I thought we'd just go to an ordinary place that caters to day-tripping groups-you know what I mean. I was SO wrong! From the minute we walked in, it was so impressive. The owner/manage(?) greeted us and he was ever-present... More

I go here often and the food is always good. Whatever I order I'm glad I ordered it rather than wishing for something else. I especially like their Straciatella soup which is not always on the menu but they always seem to have it if you ask. I have had fish, veal, pasta dishes, all have been satisfying. The waiters...

Just returned from a wonderful visit to NYC, and Scaletta's was one of our better meals while there. We were on our way to a play and stopped in here because it was next door to the theater. We did not have reservations and they only had one table left, so we took what they had. Thank goodness we did.... More

The owner saw me and my wife through the door and opened the restaurant for us before opening hours. Thank you so much! We were hungry, after a day in the Museum. The appetizers, the wine, the veal, everything was very nice! And the service was very friendly!

As a part of the Collette tour we had dinner at Scaletta Ristorante at 50 West 77th Street, New York, New York. Service was excellent as was the meal. Even with a large group we were quickly served by friendly wait staff. The fish was served with excellent presentation and was outstanding. The ambiance was enhanced with friendly staff.

Scaletta is a long time favorite of ours and many others here on the Upper West Side. The food is Northern Italian, always well prepared and delicious. The pastries are wonderful. The staff are helpful, courteous and attentive and the management always greets you warmly. We've often taken out of guests there and everyone has always been happy with their... More

Had a wonderful dinner tonight at Scaletta's!! Service was wonderful and attentive without being annoying. Food was delicious. Went for restaurant week and to celebrate my birthday. After the delicious dinner and dessert, the waiter came over to say " not everyday is your birthday" and offered us a complimentary after dinner drink! Then came back again and sang happy... More

We've had multiple dining experiences at this friendly Upper West Side restaurant opposite the Museum of Natural History. The food is fresh, nicely prepared, mostly in a Northern Italian style, and well served on crisp linen. Omer, the chef proprietor, is a gem. This is a family owned and operated establishment that places great emphasis on pleasing its customers in... More

Food wasn't too bad, but combination of service and atmosphere took any joy out of this place. Service first: three starters arrived with an empty plate for our fourth guest to use as a sharing plate - evidently his order forgotten, and turned up fifteen minutes later after a reminder. Mains were nice but they'd managed to mix up the... More
