Description: 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, sauteed spinach and roasted Mission figs. The 350-bottle wine list encompasses all regions of Italy but also does justice to the best American wineries.

“Excellent food, good service, nice decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Although the dishes are traditional, execution is flawless and the wine that was proposed to accompany our meal couldn't have been a better choice for us. A memorable evening.

“One of the best places to eat in NYC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

I rarely will rate a restaurant so high, but this place has earned after every visit. The large ravioli appetizer is a must! The food, atmosphere and service are top notch. It is expensive but worth it!

“45th Anniversary Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Gracious, old Italian service with incredibly wonderful food. We did not feel rushed even though they served several house intermezzos w/o charge. The pasta is delicate, flavorful, and light. I'm glad we celebrated at Scalini and will certainly dine there again when in NY!

“Nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Very nice! Old school charm and yummy Italian cuisine... Nice to see that some old places like Scalini Fedeli still manage to hold their own, even with new and younger blood pushing the envelope with modern interpretations of food preparation. Will return for sure...
