Excellent food and service. Was late for reservation due to flight delay but very accommodating. Great location by Times Square and Broadway. Nice dinning experience which I will return to.

Food was very good. The skirt steak could have been a bigger portion. Great value offered on the prefix menu. Wine was priced well. Staff was great from time we walked in to time we left. We were going to a show and took our time and never felt rushed.

scarlatto was very satisfying. we were seated in a corner as requested and were able to have a conversation in normal tones.
our waiter was not to be seen but we managed. we shared a caesar salad - way enough for two and had our own entrees of linguine with white clams. very tasty and linguini was cooked perfectly.

Haven't found too many theatre district restaurants that are more than mediocre but our whole party of four was pleasantly surprised with Scarlatto. All four mains were very good as was the dessert. Only miss was the scallop appetizer which was a special - scallops weren't sweet at all. And the prices were very reasonable. Good pre-theatre choice.

Scarlotto's is always a sumptuous treat. Cozy, authentic Italian restaurant in the heart of the Times Square Theatre District, it offers outstanding cuisine, charming ambiance and decor and unparalleled service. Good for everyday dining or special occasion.

We were an hour late for our reservation due to a horrible traffic jam. Scarlatto seated us anyway and with very efficient service got us fed and out in time for the theater! Cocktails were perfect, prix fixe menu had great choices, the pumpkin ravioli was delicious, as was the veal scalapini. Would definitely return. Would have preferred to sit downstairs in the main dining room but we were late so just glad we got a table!

There were four of us that went to dinner here before going to Hamilton and it was fabulous! The gnocchi, tagliatelle and pumpkin ravioli with sage (2 orders of that) were off the charts delicious and the portions were so generous! We came back the next night for a late night dessert at the bar and omg the New York cheese cake and tiramisu were both to die for!

We been to this restaurant many times and generally love it but our last experience was not very good. The eggplant parmigiana was so full of basil it actually looked like it was stuffed with it. The sauce for the chicken parmigiana also had a very prominent basil flavor. I believe basil is an herb that should be used to enhance flavor, not dominate it (unless one is having pesto). Previous experiences have all been great so I hope this is an anomaly.

My husband and I both went with the prix fix menu. He chose mussels, veal scaloppine and panacota. I had the soup, veal and panacota. We both loved our appetizers and dessert. But the veal was dry and lacked flavor.

We went to Scarlatto before we went to see a show and they were more than accommodating. Quick and excellent service good food and good cocktail choices. The only negative thing I would say is the noise level was very high and we had trouble conversing at the table. Overall a very good experience.

This was our first time dining at Scarlatto. We went there before going to see Sunset Blvd on a Wednesday before the matinee. The restaurant decor is very nice, very Italian, warm. The bar tender had our table and she did a nice job of helping us. The food ....we both had pasta dishes and they were excellent large portions. The causes were good not the best but very good. I would recommend Scarlatto. Great location to theaters, beautiful decor and very nice food and service.

Scarlatto has been my go-to pre-theater restaurant for years. It was not up to standards this past Sunday. Becasuse it was lunch perhaps. The waiter was adorable but quite untrained. He was told one of us is a vegan who is allergic to garlic. Her order was delivered incorrectly. The wrong salad, covered with bacon. She then asked if the sorbet had milk in it. He said no. When I suggested he ask, he came back chagrined to say, it was dairy free. While the meal was still pleasant, it was not up to your usual.

Post-matinee theater dinner with a large group, so had few choices at 7pm on a Saturday. So glad we found this on Open Table. We all arrived and were seated promptly, even a bit early. With nine of us, we got to try a large variety of the menu. The bread was okay--maybe a bit too chewy--but the sauce they brought with it, which oddly seemed to me to be almost like pureed tabbouleh was fabulous. The special asparagus soup was lovely and not at all heavy. The Kobe beef meatball was enjoyed by all, especially the ricotta. The antipasto appetizer was quite large but not sure of the price. For meals, I ordered the pumpkin ravioli, which was excellent. The gnocchi, veal, truffle pasta, skirt steak and lamb all received high marks. The black sea bass was just so-so. The wine selection was nice with decent wines at all price levels. Service was impeccable and very quick. Maybe a bit too quick if you want to really visit. But we didn't feel rushed either.

The main dining room of this restaurant was beautiful and had we sat in that room it would have improved the rating, however despite our request to be in the main eatery which was made at the time of booking the reservation, we were seated in a very narrow dining room above the restaurant. It felt like we were shoved in the corner in a closet somewhere with no decor value and crooked floors. We payed the same cost, and didn't even get to experience the ambience of the main restaurant (which is really what you pay for).

As always, Scarlatto didn't disappoint. Great food, great service and moderately priced. The bread was served with a green dipping sauce that was simply amazing.

We were seated promptly and our server, Eduardo, was courteous and friendly. We highly recommend Scarlatto

We had a wonderful experience with a pre-theater dinner. We were supposed to be 8 and ended up being 11, and they could not have been more accommodating. The service was wonderful and even with the extra diners, we were out in time to get to our show. Food is very flavorful. Enjoyed the meatballs and the fried calamari and zucchini. Everyone had only good things to say about their main course. Great pre-theater option.

I've been to Scarlatto many times and this is the first time I was disappointed in my meal. We were there early before a 7:00 pm show and ordered from the prix-fix dinner menu. The price is right at $29.99 for three courses. However, the food was lacking. Asparagus soup was ok, but veal scallopini was bland and panna cotta dessert had a plastic after-taste. I will go back but order from the menu and pay extra for a more enjoyable meal. Service was fine as always.
