One of the finest restaurants I've had the pleasure of visiting. The food is absolutely superb, the setting beautiful and service fantastic. They type of restaurant that makes you wish you could give 6 stars. At $80, the fixed price menu is quite literally unbelievable value. They bill it as a 3 course menu, but in reality it's closer to 7 courses. Start off with excellent breads, followed by a selection of small plates, then starters (which are enormous), followed my main courses (also enormous) and then a dessert (but not before the pre-dessert palate cleaner. Every course, without exception, was excellent. Unfortunately this style of restaurant seems to be going out of fashion, which is a shame, as this is the type of place you'll be treated wonderfully all night in a spacious and calm ambience. The presentation and setting is old-fashioned, as opposed to outdated. Would come again without doubt. Come very, very hungry. And get the veal chop.

Stepping into the restaurant, I felt like I was transported to old Italy - groin vaulted ceilings, opera music in the background, Italian-speaking (and singing) staff. USD79 for a 3-course prix fixe menu was pretty good value for money, considering the standard of food, size of servings and the inclusion of amuse bouche and palate clesnser. I would describe everything that was served as "good old Italian fare". For example, if you ordered the pappardelle bolognese (primi), you would get fresh and unadulterated pasta that represent traditional excellence. The highlight for me though, must have been the veal chop (piatti principale), which was most flavourful.

This is not the first time I've been to this restaurant but it is always special. I am still a little anxious going into indoor restaurants due to COVID and the Maitre-D was especially accommodating and put us at a table where we were not too close to others. And he checked on us to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying our evening! The restaurant is very elegant, the service is great as is the food. I have had truffle appetizers repeatedly when I've dined here and they never disappoint. We will definitely return soon.

Amazing Italian food and superb service. Tonight was a price fix menu which is fine. they first brought three two-bite very flavorful appetizers: salmon crostini, shrimp in mustard sauce, zucchini in a tomato sauce all of which were incredibly tasty. The ravioli appetizer was, hands down, the best ravioli I've ever had, and the salmon in mushroom sauce was world class. Really enjoyed Scalini Fedini and will most definitely return on my next trip to New York

Scalini Fedeli was one of the best dining experiences I’ve had in ages. The service is outstanding & welcoming. The food is also fantastic. It is a great value for a pre-fixed menu and you will leave very full and happy. Great for special events or romantic date nights. We spent several hours there and did not feel rushed through the dining experience at all. I highly recommend the egg soft yolk raviolo with truffle and the lamp chops. They were extremely accommodating, proactive with service and included complimentary wine to celebrate the special occasion

First, the restaurant is beautiful with all of the candles. Dinner was amazing with so many interesting choices for both the first and second courses. My wife had the Agnolotti (so good) following by the pork chop with arugula and beet salad on top (also very good). I eat out often and have never seen pasta with octopus and anchovy sauce. I asked the waiter if it was strong and he assured me it wasn't. Good call, one of the best and most unique pasta dishes I've had. It was followed with the veal chop which is incredible. The meal was followed by sorbet and dessert. Both included. In summary the restaurant is fine dining at its best, but the price wasn't that bad and for the amount and quality of the food, a great value. We'll definitely be back.

Service was incredible from start to finish. From the greeting coming in to the gathering of coats. It is only a price fixed menu so make sure you realize that is your only option when having dinner. The dishes are all very rich but the flavors are all balanced. I had the pappardelle and it was beyond delicious. I also had the veal scallopini. It was a heavier sauce but I also enjoyed it. The flourless chocolate cake dessert was incredible. The others had the Bolognese followed by the pork chop dinner. They all loved it. The prices are high but totally worth it.

My husband and I have been here twice - first for our second wedding anniversary in 2021 and again last night for my birthday. Both times we had a wonderful experience! The service is impeccable and the food is wonderful. I wish they had more vegetation options for their opening dishes, and for their entrees beyond just larger portions of their appetizer options, but it’s still a wonderful experience. The ambiance is wonderful with real candles on every table, and everyone from the host to the busboys make you feel special. They even gave us a special moscato toast at the end for my birthday. Wonderful experience every time!

I don’t know how many times I have been here. 20? 25? I’ve been going 1-2 times a year for 12-15 years. The food is excellent; great wine list, and lovely decor. The service is really excellent, and they remember you if you are a repeat customer. I’ll be honest, there are a lot of excellent Italian restaurants in NYC with great food, decor, and service, but what makes Scalini Fedeli unique is the atmosphere. You can actually hear the people you are dining with and have a conversation without raising your voice or leaning toward someone. SF achieves this by not overpacking the restaurant like pretty much every other NYC restaurant. Meals are so much more enjoyable when you don’t have to listen to every detail of a neighboring table’s conversation.

I had high expectations based on the reviews, but was disappointed. While the service was excellent, the food was mediocre at best. We arrived towards the end of the evening and it was clear some of our first bites had been sitting for some time. The guancale in my amitriciana was tough. My duck was fine, but not very inspiring. Overall, the food quality was on par w a cruise ship or an all inclusive resort - nothing horrible, but not the sort of Italian we were hoping for.

Having researched a vast number of restaurants in New York to celebrate a wedding anniversary we finally decided on this gem. Some of the menus were over fussy and inaccessible - this restaurant offered an excellent menu with clear descriptions. From the greeting on arrival to our departure the warmth of the experience could not have been better. What a great fixed price menus! The appetisers were fresh and very tasty. At all points of our dinner the staff were polite, friendly, professional and not over bearing. The quality of the food and 5he presentation were exceptional with hidden taste surprises gently coming through. This is certainly a restaurant where the food matches the menu to perfection. We only have one regret and that is that we only ate there once - when next in New York we will return. We cannot recommend Scalini Fedeli highly enough. A true taste of Italy in NYC.

We’re so late submitting this review but we were determined to get it done given the fantastic experience we had on our wedding day last November. We booked the restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and we could not have had a better experience. We were made to feel so welcome and every effort was made by all the staff to make it a really special experience. Every dish we were served was perfect - delicious and beautifully presented. We were so happy with the evening and can’t wait to return to New York and definitely to Scalini Fedeli for our first anniversary in November!!!

Last time I ate here thirty years ago I was impressed. And 30 years later even more so. Gorgeous setting, incredibly what I thought had disappeared old-style service still exists. Very good food, lots of it, very different, awesome selection of wines, totally professional maitre'd of the type that are fading away. Can't wait to go again.

Our experience here was exceptional in every way. Every dish was a masterpiece, and service was impeccable. The dining room here is a work of art, intimate in a way that you feel part of the buzz without being on top of your neighbors. Highly recommend!

WOW, what an incredible meal......every morsel was superb! We were fortunate enough to dine here last night before the second COVID shutdown. It makes me so sad that places like this are being closed when they are working so hard to play by the rules! Our table was 10-12’ away from the other tables. Mike, we can’t wait to return when our Governor and Mayor reopen the restaurants. If they had any sense they would go after the congregations and wedding venues not the restaurants! Thank you for a fabulous evening!
