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.

From the moment you enter the restaurant, you are treated as a special person. The service is impeccable and every morsel of food is divine. The flavors of the sausage and herbs in the pasta bolognaise explode in your mouth: we have never tasted better in any restaurant. The chef adds free unique treats throughout the meal that equal the quality of the rest of the meal. We are surprised that this restaurant lost its Michelin rating a decade ago and never regained it.

Had one of the best meals I’ve had in quite a long time. This restaurant offers the full experience from beginning to end - something long forgotten. Service was impeccable incredibly attentive, and knowledgeable. Atmosphere was warm, intimate, inviting and tasteful. Food was superb and the chef’s amuse bouche offerings were as delectable as the entrees. It earns its Michelin rating and then some!

From the moment we walked into the restaurant until we left the food and service was perfect.
This was the best Italian meal I have eaten.
We just came back recently from Rome and Southern Italy where we ate in many restaurants. This restaurant surpassed them all!

I’ve traveled the world and this is hands down the best Italian cuisine I’ve had to date. My wife and I booked a reservation on a recent trip to NYC to celebrate her birthday. We found this place and decided to give it a try. From the moment you walk in the door you feel at home with their genuine hospitality and eagerness to delight their guests. The staff was amazing! Piero took care of our every need and provided incredible service. He is a true gentleman with a great personality. Everything from the atmosphere, ambience, service, and food were a perfect 10 out of 10 and we tasted flavors I haven’t experienced in a very long time, if ever. The restaurant is under the care and guidance of Chef Michael Cetrulo and he was in the kitchen this particular night working up these magical dishes with exquisite flavors. The kitchen brought out so many different treats compliments of the chef, all perfect in their own unique way. So much flavor! For an incredible dinner experience, you must go here while in the city. Scalini Fedeli, thank you for a wonderful night!

We took some friends to dinner here last night and from beginning to end, the evening was perfect. Well, perhaps not from “beginning”because we were stuck in NY traffic for a shocking time and so arrived very late for our reservation. I was dreading the reaction of the restaurant but they welcomed us warmly without a hint of reproach. The table was lovely. The waiters were charming. And the food was really to die for. There were so many fabulous choices on the prix fix menu, our vegetarian friend was completely happy, as was my carnivore husband. Several preparations of scampi drew raves. The veal chop drew purring. And not one but many amuse bouchées from the chef throughout the meal. Excellent Italian wine list — though quite expensive I would say. But we loved the Sicilian White the waiter helped us select. And the desert! Don’t miss these delicious sweets at the end of the meal, even if you are full. Such a perfect choice for a lingering meal with friends.
