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.

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!

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...

“Lively Italian”
Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

Good prix fixed menu. Food was excellent. Pasta was fresh and well prepared and presented. Sea scallops, duck and veal were all a hit. Watch out for the noise level, highly energetic which some will like but tough for those who are hearing challenged. Fairly eclectic crowd from business suits to serious celebrations.

“Excellent food in TriBeca - worth looking for”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Scalini Fedeli occupies the old premises of Bouley, and is beautifully appointed. It is a large open room, but the noise level was not high. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and overall service was excellent. We had pasta dishes, fish, and lamb, and all were prepared with excellence. Taste was superb, and plating was what would be expected for this type of fare. The pappardelle with spicy veal shank and the veal medallions were particularly good. I highly recommend eating here.
