we stumbled across Scaletta by accident to escape a snow storm! But the food was exquisite and the service was incredible!

This place is convenient to the Museum of Natural History and offers very good Italian food served by unobtrosive waiters. Well worth a trip

I went there for dinner with an old friend and we really wanted to have a nice dinner and a nice long talk. Unfortunately we had to scream in order to be heard. My dinner was OK. My Caesar salad did not taste like a Caesar salad and a good Italian restaurant. The dressing was blah, the lettuce was white.

We had a pleasant dinner at Scaletta this past week. The staff, service and food all very good - as expected. But, to be fair while consistently good nothing reached to exceptional or inspired. We would certainly come back again but more of a plan B.

We had my wife's 50th Birthday dinner with about 25 guests in the private room at Scaletta and could not have been more pleased. We did a lot of research on event space and private rooms all over Manhattan and we found Freddie and his team to be the most accommodating, friendly and flexible. They presented many options and layouts... More

We arrived 5:30 as we had tickets for a play later that evening. The meal was quite good although the tomatoes in the salad were not as flavorful as they should have been in September. The staff was attentive but not overbearing, the restaurant was quiet (though it had filled by the time we left), and the main courses were... More

My wife and I had been planning to eat here for quite some time and finally had the chance tonight. Ambiance is clean and quiet. Service is attentive and there when needed. Food is very good. Wide variety of specials. Nice dessert table. A little pricey but worth the money.

You have friends you would like to catch up with and at the same time you are looking for a great meal. Look no further than Scaletta's. The moment you walk in the door, they make you feel like family. Instead of listening to a conversation at the next table or the roar of many restaurants, you can have an... More

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.
