Scarlatto Ratings and Reviews
The experience at Scarletto began well enough with a very accommodating hostess who was pleasant and helpful. However, the service (specifically our waiter who seemed arrogant and unfriendly) was unfortunate. This waiter had an attitude from the beginning until the end when he opened the check portfolio, looked at his tip and then made a rude remark in broken English (we tipped 20% on the food and beverage by the way). The food was decent but uninspired. It was ok for a pre-theater meal but we won't be back - mainly because of the waiter.
I usually avoid mid-town, theater district places in the city because they are over-priced or tourist traps, but this one was wonderful. Very clean, FANTASTIC and attentive service, the food food was excellent and fresh. Perfect location for a pre-show dinner, too. All in all an excellent choice, and we have found our new go-to spot for dinner when we got to see a Broadway show.
Excellent food an ample portions. We informed our server that we were not in a hurry. Despite that, we were very rushed as our main dishes were presented as our appetizer plates were removed. We ordered drinks first and did not order off the prix fix menu. The noise level was absolutely Intolerable which made conversation a shouting match. I would go back but request a table in the bar. Seemed quieter there.
We booked Scarlatto because we were going to the theatre, it was right down the street, and online reviews were positive. It was fine, but nothing special. The complimentary bread with pesto was nice. The spinach salad had a very nice dressing but the piece of goat cheese on top of it was almost frozen, and the parmesan slices were gummy. The minestrone soup was extremely thick and not the typical tomato base; it seemed to be made with chicken broth (warning for vegetarians to check before ordering). The ravioli with vodka sauce was very tasty except that the peas were tough. The pasta con funghi with truffle oil was good but very heavy. So, overall, good, but not great. And the noise level was deafening. I would go elsewhere next time.
Outstanding on every conceivable level -- staff is incredibly friendly and efficient. Excellent service and food. Not a single complaint about anything from me or my guests. Scrumptious palpetta appetizier and chicken parmagiana. Wonderful cocktails and reasonable wine prices.
I will being going back to this place on a regular basis. Wonderful!
We dined here n a Friday night before theater. We had a 5:30 reservation. By 5:45 it was full so make a reservation!
We were pleasantly escorted to our table and promptly greeted by our server. He gave us ample time to choose our dinners, making sure to answer any questions about the menu. While we did not select a pre-dinner menu, one is available and at a very reasonable price for three courses.
Lovely warm bread was served with a pesto cream spread. Not wanting to fill up on the bread I had only a slice but would have happily eaten the whole basket of bread. The Cesar salad was good with a generous amount of thinly sliced parmigiana dressing the top. I had taglialoni with lamb ragout. The pasta was fresh, tender and perfectly cooked. The lamb ragout was slow cooked to a wonderful richness. My husband had the chicken parm and was very happy with the dish. It was certainly generous in portion. It was tender and flavorful .
We had leftovers which we ate for lunch the next day. And again we were both smiling when eating!
Neighbor Gem- They have specials every night plus a pre theatre price fix They made home made pasta which is excellent. The price fix menu offers a variety of choices. The mussel appetizer appetizer was excellent. As was the veal dish.
The wines by the glass also represent a good selection. The service is good and efficient. The upstairs room is a bit quieter than downstairs.
I feel you get excellent value for your money.
Went for a pre theater meal. Service was excellent. Quality of food was awful. Mussels were shriveled and rest of food tasted like it had been sitting prepared and played earlier in the day. Two of us go sick that night. Would def NOT recommend
Pre theater dinner. Reservations was at 5 show at 7 had more than enough time. I had a special, shirt ribs and risotto she had pumpkin ravioli. Both excellent. Great location in theater district. Last took my parents pre show and was also excellent.
Service was impeccable. We were an hour late and because I called they held the table for 8. The maître d & waiter were superb in getting our order in quickly so that we could make it to the theater on time. We did not even have to ask. They were amazing. Food was DELISH. We loved the lighting and actually commented to each other about quiet the restaurant was, even though the room was completely full with lots of patrons still coming in. Really a great experience. These Dutchess County girls will definitely be back.
