After the demise of La Lanterna due to the owner's retirement, a diner who is seeking a special culinary experience is hard pressed to find an upscale restaurant in Wuppertal. But Scarpati is still there after all these years.The beautiful late 19th-century villa and adjacent pavilion make for a lovely ambiente. The cuisine is haute Italian. The chef is very creative but not too ornate or over-the-top playful. The flavors are delicious and well balanced, the ingredients fresh and tasty.
We had the duck and Argentinian steak, both cooked to perfection although my fellow diner complained that her duck was not as tender as she had hoped. It looked perfect, but sometimes the meat isn't as tender as it looks--not the chef's fault. I had the degustation menu. Each course was a pleasant surprise for the taste buds. As can be expected, the service was excellent. The waiters follow the silent code of service and are friendly to boot, not self-important. Tuesdays as well as on weekends, the restaurant has specials both for dining and for accommodations.
