Ate here before the Hamilton show. Arrived early just after 5pm when they had just opened so the place was almost empty. It soon began to fill up with lots of other theatre patrons and the servers were very accommodating to hold our entrees and we did not feel at all rushed to turn over the table. The quality of the food was excellent and we would definitely return. Atmosphere is cozy downstairs, there is also an upper level we didn't see.

Overall experience is satisfactory given that it was a pre-show dinner. Food is ok. Prices are Manhattan-theater-district high prices. Calamari is not crispy and it's a bit chewy. Apple tart dessert (which comes with vanilla ice cream) was too soft and too moist. It should have a crispy crust. Halibut special was fine though not very flavorful. Wine took too long to arrive.
We won't be returning any time soon despite its convenient location. For us, it wasn't worth the cost.

Not a great experience. Loud and cramped. Server was not friendly and hardly spoke to us. Didn't even check on us after the dinner arrived. Would not go here again. Thought the food was just ok. I was disappointed.

Four of us had price fixe dinner, all had salmon, good tho mine ordered medium was rare, which I actually prefer to well done by far. Tiramisu semi- freddo was excellent. Main level is deafening but my request for upstairs was granted and the upstairs space despite its low ceiling was much quieter. A good choice for pre-theater in this area.

The place was packed & so noisy...we ordered & asked if we could move to the bar, which was much quieter...after much discussion with the manager, we were told we couldn't since we already ordered. I had pasta arrabiata, which was just awful...drowning in sweet red sauce & tasted burnt.

Had a nice Dinner. We each had the fixed price dinner. Too many mushrooms (over kill) in my meal. A little noisy but no big deal. Espresso not the greatest - my home machine is better. The panda cotta was great.

Typical Pre-theatre fare
Positives: Fun, if a bit loud, atmosphere with excited pre-theatre crowd. Wonderful, energetic waiter who made sure to get our food to the table on time. Very attentive staff. Pre-theatre is what this restaurant does, and it does it well. You WILL make it to your show on time. Great location.
Negatives: The food. Do not expect more than a mediocre meal, so don't go crazy and order the seafood ravioli special (like my wife did--salmon in the ravioli is just too hard to do well for some chefs). Stick to the basics, lower your expectations and you'll be fine.
Buffa Mozzarella with Ripened Tomatoes was great btw, as was the bread. House cab, a bit warm, but ok.

The perfect Italian restaurant. To start with, I always judge a restaurant by the bread and coffee. Check and check. The selections were impressive and everything was delicious. I highly recommend the Portabello appetizer Halibut entree. The service was excellent, not rushed but also not inattentive. The wines we fairly priced and a good selection. A table side chiller was appreciated. The cappuccino cake and profiteroles for dessert were amazing. This is now my preferred theater district place to go.

Went to dinner before a Broadway show with my friend and our nieces. The service was good. The people were nice. The food was good. Nothing to spectacular but I've been to a few places in the theater district and the food is usually mediocre, and Scarletto was above average.

We went to Scarlatto for dinner prior to theater. The service was superb and the waiters suggestions were right on. Very attentive staff, always there when you needed something. Food was excellent with great presentation. I had the Branzino, per the waiters suggestion, and it was excellant. There was also a three course prix fixe menu for theater goers($19.95). Menu is varied with most entrees in the $20 range. Have added this restaurants to our must visit again list.

I ordered gnocchi, which are supposed to be light and pillowy. They were very large, dense and gummy. The marinara sauce was very thin and sweet, not what you expect from a "spaghetti sauce". My husband ordered the salmon. It came on a small bed of spinach. He was wondering where the rest of his food was.

I never write reviews, but this restaurant was so disappointing. The waiter was rude once we didn't order alcohol and the food was disgusting. I've had better frozen meals. I don't know how people gave it good reviews on opentable. The waiter didn't even ask us if our meals were bad, even though we left full plates of food. Skip this place.

Food and service were top notch. A little noisy for a fancy restaurant and other guests attire (shorts, flip flops, tank tops) made the overall experience feel less than noteworthy. Perhaps instituting a dress code would allow for a more pleasing atmosphere. Wine selection and dessert were top of the line!

 (Pittsburgh)·Dined on 22 July 2017

We were recommended to go to Scarlatto by an acquaintance as a good pre- show location. Everything was fanstastic - ambience, service, food,... We shared a meatball appetizer- very very good. My wife had chicken parmesan, I had bolognese. Both were outstanding. One small issue was the lack of space ( guess one should expect this in NYC) The table next to us was seated with 6 people who's seats were (no exaggeration) 6 inches from our table. The wait staff did a great job navigating this, however.

We went here for a pre play dinner. The location is excellent in regards to proximity to theatres. We sat upstairs and I would highly recommend this. It was much quieter than downstairs.. The service was excellent and prompt. We had a dinner for 6 and were able to easily converse, did not feel rushed and were done in plenty of time for the show. The food was good quality, tasty, well prepared and worth the price. Not the best Italian I have had but was just what we were looking for in terms of a pre show dinner.
