The food was spectacular - we started with beef carpaccio (nicely presented, with delicious mushrooms and cheese) had then had cheese ravioli and the chicken/sausage dish, both of which were balanced and healthy in proportion. Desert was tiramisu and some kind of banana chocolate cake. Perhaps the best part of dinner was the wine - a red for $35-40 which was spicy and pleasant on the palate.

The average age of the clientelle was 50+, which was a pleasant surprise! We were looking for a normal quiet dinner at 10pm (made an open table resi at 9) with good food, so this worked out well - not a loud environment, and we could actually have a decent conversation. The service was very attentive, they filled the water very quickly (a problem at many NYC restaurants) and dinner for 2 ran us a reasonable $120 including 3 courses and a bottle of wine.

Really liked Scaletta. From our salads to our pasta dishes to the homemade desserts, Scaletta was spot on throughout. We liked the wine selections as well and the waitstaff was very helpful and attentive.

We should leave after we looked at the menu- it is full of misspellings !
But unfortunately we didn't ...
Bad food, bad service, bad prices -very expensive.
It was a Friday raining evening and the restaurant was almost empty, not a good sign. But since we had a reservation, we tried to use our sense of humor and we did need a lot .

Don't go, better to eat a slice of pizza somewhere else.

i went here to celebrate my birthday with my sister in law and loved the place as soon as we walked through the door, a lovely smell of oranges and cinnamon hits you, a great detail. we were seated immediately and had plate after plate of amazing food brought to us over the space of an hour and a half. we didn't feel rushed or intimidated by the staff and they were pleased to answer all our questions about each dish. not much room for personal space would be my only problem, us brits are used to a lot of space in our restaurants so it was strange bumping arms with the man next to me who didn't seem to impressed! great value overall just 60 pounds for a five course meal with a small box of chocolates given as we left which was a great touch

You must know fine dining if you know what canned food tastes like. UWSdiner has no clue. I have been a customer of this restaurant for years and I only have good things to say about it. The food is amazing, perhaps the best Italian in NY and the people there are what make the experience even better. The owners and waitstaff are courteous each time I go. Don't take my word for it, I've seen Donald Trump, Barbara Streisand, Michael Douglas, and a bunch of other people munching there. Anyone, who knows good food is, not what canned food is, should come. You will have an awesome experience.

Our first clue that the food would be terrible should have been that the restaurant was practically empty. Though, the waiter who seated us was very quick to criticize us for not having a reservation, something we found rather amusing.
The menu looked very appetizing, as did the specials. 20 minutes after trying to order some the specials we were informed that they were actually not available. So, looking at the menu again, we ordered. The lasagna was clearly reheated (though not thoroughly) and tasted like something out of a chef Boyardee can. The pan seared beef tenderloins were flavorless and came with a side of a reheated potato croquette.
What added insult to injury were the ridiculous prices. Had the food been even half way decent, then, perhaps, the prices could have been justified. But that was simply not the case.
If you enjoy food, go somewhere else.

My fiance and I ate here for dinner on a weeknight. Our main dishes were a bit pricey, both chicken, but above average in taste. My first impression of this place when I walked in was that it looked like the dining hall at work or a dining area in a nursing home. There is an overwhelming amount of older people here and the decor is outdated, too simple and spread out, plus no music (even low jazz, classical, italian...)to help the feel of this place. The service is ultra slow, but I think the clientelle enjoy sitting and chatting for hours. The staff was friendly and knowledgable on the food. Overall, I would not go back...If I'm going to get slow service with just above average food I need a little more eye candy in the decor or costumers to get me to sit for that long!

If you are looking for a "great" neighborhood place this is it. The staff makes you feel comfortable as soon as you desend the stairs and walk through the door. They are gracious and polite.
As for the food, this place has the "best" veal chop parm! The fried calamari is light and fresh. The pasta and tomato basil is better than homemade.
Dessert is all made fresh daily in the kitchen. Outragous puddings and tarts highlight the menu.
Taramisu is outstanding.
Prices are the most reasonable that I've seen in a long time for dining in the City.
