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.

“A must for dinner in NYC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2010

It doesn't get any better than Scalini Fedeli. Food, atmosphere & service were exceptional
I was concerned when I saw the menu was prix fixed, but it was a non issue. There were plenty of choices & it was worth every penny. Especially since our waiter continued to bring complimentary items throughout the meal. We will make sure to visit Scalini Fedeli when we visit NYC again

“Unbelievable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2010

My wife and I visited this restaurant during a long weekend in NYC. What a meal! The entire experience was fantastic! The atmosphere was very romantic. Our waiter was very attentive. The food was unbelievable! It was probably one of my top "food" experiences ever. Also, it was my wife's birthday. I mentioned it on opentable when I made the reservation. The waiter presented us with our desert plate with writing "Happy 30th Birthday Molly". Well done! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anybody!

“Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2010

My husband and I went to this restaurant with my in laws and found it excellent. Despite the arrogant and cold waiter - which we decided to ignore and just focus on the positive aspects that the establishment has to offer-.
The food was amazing from begining to end and we can't wait to go back.
The dining area is beautiful, with high scalloped ceilings.
What a Gem!

“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2010

We ate here twice on a recent trip to new york. The food is excellant, it's worth going to just for the desserts!! The staff is very friendly. On our second trip we got a complementary pre-starter, glass of desert wine and starwberries with cream. There is a lovely romantic atmosphere in the restaurant. Would recommend it for couples.

“A little romance in the heart of Tribeca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2010

We booked a table at Scalini Fedeli for our last night in New York and to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary and we certainly picked the perfect place. We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we stepped through the door. It is the most romantic restaurant we've visited, the decor and ambience made it so, with low lighting, candles and beautifully presented tables. The service was impeccable, and they were very helpful when asked about the vegetarian options, of which there were quite a few, it was so difficult choosing what to have! The food itself was heavenly and very imaginitive and the little in-between extra courses (courtesy of the chef) were a lovely touch. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to lovers of fine food and wine and to those who want a litttle romance in heart of Tribeca.
