One of my favorite restaurants in New York. For this style of New York Italian restaurant, I'd say it's the best. Romantic, great food, an army of servers, prices that will make you gasp, outstanding wines. And the atmosphere? Like

Expect to pay a minimum $ 250. per person. It is a loud tight place where there is barely enough room for the help to serve the tables, you will feel like a can of anchovies never mind sardines. They have no idea about table service or

My wife and her four friends went here this week. The food was good. However the majority of the dishes avaiiable are NOT on the menu. They ordered without asking for the price of each item. What a mistake. Veal Marsalla, a standard in all Italian restaurants was not on the menu. IThe price was $54. The waiter did not offer any prices for the "specials". Beware. Ask for prices. I believe this is a deliberate attempt to deceive their customers.

I agree with all the negative reviews (see Zagat reviews). Restaurant was tight. Waiters were hurried and rude. Hostess actually asked us to move tables after 2nd course was served. Food was way overpriced and mediocre at best. I am happy to pay top dollar for a good meal, wine and service, but we experienced none of these at Scalinatella. There are so many other amazing Italian restaurants in this city, DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER GOING TO THIS RESTAURANT!!!

Barely glimpsed from the street, Scalinatella serves cuisine from many regions of Italy in a contemporary and soothing setting. The many regular customers come for the attentive service and above-standard Italian fare. The smallish menu…
