“Especially fine” pastas including that “simple but perfect” signature spaghetti headline the “impressive” menu at this Chelsea Italian, where a “well-trained” team delivers the “first-rate” fare; “energy” runs “high” in the “sleek, modern” space, as do the “special-occasion” bills.

I decided on having a birthday dinner here because of the nicer ambience and the good reviews. I was expecting a lot, and it didn't measure up. The pastas were okay, but nothing memorable. My party noticed a huge, dead cockroach next to our table, and quickly noticed our waiter. I was pretty disgusted at that point, but the waiter tried to save the day by giving us a free dessert. At least they get a bump up for service.

I had pretty high expectations coming to Scarpetta but it failed to impress. We were seated to the right of the entrance which doesn't feel like a nice restaurant, it lacks atmosphere and style. The food was okay, nothing amazing. We had the short ribs appetizer, the cod which was highly recommended by the waiter but was very average and the short rib ravioli which were good. Overall experience, good but not great.

From the quaint and comfortable atmosphere to impeccable service to the most amazing menu selections and superb taste....this restaurant hits every point at a 5-star and has made my all time must go back. We enjoyed our evening so much we visited Scott's Las Vegas venue while there too.
