Scarlatto Ratings and Reviews
My family and I had an 8 p.m. theater start and we were concerned that when we were seated our waitperson was taking a little too long to take our order. As soon as we told him, everything flowed perfectly. Two of us had a very reasonable $29 prix fixe menu. It had lots of choices- I had mussels, salmon and an excellent cappucino cake- and it was delicious. I would definitely go here again before a show.
We were looking for a restaurant that was close to theatre and this was perfect. They seated us promptly & the food was good. The portions are large & so we ate family style & they were really nice about giving us extra plates & things. I would definitely go back & recommend this place
Pre theatre dinner. We went with no information other than what was on OpenTable, but what a great find! Right across the street from the Barrymore Theatre and the food was fabulous!! I had a lamb ragu that was loaded with lamb for only $20...sooo good! Nice staff, reasonably priced.
This was a perfect spot for pre-theater (our theater was across the street). The food is ample and good value for a pleasant meal. For $29.95---I had mussels in broth, grilled chicken with huge salad on top and cappuccino ice cream cake. The service was so nice that it made the meal. And while the ambience is every bit tourist Italian, it was fun and relaxing.
This restaurant is sublime. My 15-year old daughter and her friend and I found it last year based upon the direction from the concierge at the NY Marriott Marquis. The food is absolutely WONDERFUL...the service is OLD style" waiters in aprons and attending to your every need.
Food is prepared to exact specifications---I cannot find a place that prepares salmon perfectly--- this place does.
Waiters are attentive and charming.
I arrived at 5:05 for our 5:15 reservation. Despite the restaurant being 90% empty (as it was early), the hostess would not seat me until one more (of our party of 3) arrived. I stood, foolishly waiting, for someone to arrive. At 5:15, 2 of us were seated. When our 3rd arrived, we were presented with stained menus. The food was ok, certainly not special.
Having dined there several months ago, I was VERY disappointed at the ridiculous policy of refusing to seat me, the dirty menus and pedestrian food.
This was my second visit to Scarlatto in two weeks. My previous visit had been for dinner with some coworkers and I very much enjoyed it, so I decided to return for a business lunch. The restaurant was not crowded at lunch time and my dining companion and I were attentively taken care of. I had the Pollo alla Griglia, which was very light and fresh. My dining companion had the Raviolo di Zucca and he enjoyed the dish. By the end of the meal we were the only ones in the restaurant and left to our own. I think I would prefer to return next time for dinner as the restaurant is more lively during the pre-theater rush. The Gnocchi Sorrentina that I had at dinner melted in my mouth and is the dish I would recommend most.
D- for hospitality. We waited 20 minutes to be seated for our 6:30 pre-theater dinner reservation. The hostess had no accessible tables on the main floor. I walk with a cane & cannot climb stairs. I was not offered a chair & there was no place for me to sit. There were 3 tables for four open; in fact a party of 3 without a reservation were seated immediately. We were finally seated in the back just outside the kitchen. Once seated, service was efficient. Caesar salad was a bit dry, it needed more dressing. Pasta with mushrooms & truffle oil was good. Bread was dried out on surface. All in all, an unpleasant experience. We will not return.
The food is EXCELLENT! We arrived about an 90 minutes before our show and they got us in and out and we didn't feel rushed at all.
We felt like we are in Italy! The restaurant reminded us so much of the cozy places near the Trevi fountain in Rome.
We would come back again!
We went here after a show. The service is first rate. Although late, our waiter went out of his way to make us feel we had all the time in the world to relax and enjoy the food and conversation. Because it was after 10, we opted for the meat and cheese board, wine, and dessert with a cappuccino. The food was excellent as always this is our 4th visit. We've been here every time we've come to NYC and will continue to visit this fine restaurant.
I got to the restaurant about 10 mins before my husband and the hostess and "manager" wouldn't seat me because "it was a very busy night- 2/14." (at least 5-12 tables were vacant the entire time we were dining). so i had to wait at the crowded bar which was uncomfortable and unwelcoming. There was no reason not to seat me- i would have ordered a drink. Food was ok- busboy should know that you don't clear one diner's plate when the others are still eating. will probably not return.
We used to go to Scarlatto's sister restaurant, Puttanesca, which closed several years ago. Now Scarlatto's is our go-to place in the Theatre District, primarily because the food is reasonably priced for that part of town. It's a perfectly nice restaurant, just not a stand out.
I picked this restaurant due to the location, as we had tickets to show that night.
The food was delicious and I highly recommend the pumpkin ravioli. We had a nice glass of wine and an enjoyable dinner experience.
The staff and hostess were very courteous and professional.
Our second time to Scarlattos and it was every bit as wonderful as the first. We went on a Saturday evening pre-theatre. All four of us chose the veal Limone from the prix fixe menu (3-course). It was served over steamed spinach. All right sized so that we left pleasantly full. The Caesar salad was fresh and delicious. Dessert we chose the cappuccino ice cream cake which was refreshing with our coffee. Cocktails were made perfectly and there was good choice for wine with dinner. Service was perfect. We introduced our guests to Scarlattos and we all agreed that we will go back again. Give it a try!
The appetizers and main dinners were tasty and presented nicely. The stuffed portobello mushroom app. was delicious. My wife enjoyed her baked salmon, and my boneless short ribs and risotto special was tender and flavorful. Unfortunately, the dessert was disappointing (Italian cheese cake). Service was very good despite the busy room.
We ate here before a Broadway show. They have a fixed price menu which may be a little cheaper if you usually order 3 courses. I got the fixed price and my husband didn't. It was cold and the cauliflower soup was perfect, we also got the caprese salad. As an entrée I had veal over spinach which was good, but I have had better it needed more flavor which I added from a 1/2 lemon from my husbands plate. He had a chicken dish that he loved from the regular menu, thin slices of chicken with a green salad with lemon. We shared my dessert, a cappuccino ice cream slice which was small but very good.
We went here before a show, and it was perfect! The food was great, and we sat upstairs where it was quiet. The service was also great, and they were very aware of and attentive to the fact that we had a show to make on time. Would definitely recommend for a pre-show meal!
This is the second time I have dined at Scarlotto before theater. It's location is perfect. The ambience is very nice and lends itself to cozy dining. I had the spinach omelette with feta cheese and a salad. It was delicious. My friend had the panini with bacon and onion and peppers. He thought the peppers were too acidic for the sandwich. Otherwise, it was very enjoyable. My other friend had eggs benedict and said it was delicious. Will definitely return.
