We were very excited to have a meal at Scarpetta, and it was fabulous up until the entrees. The breads were great, the Apps were great. But the entrees were disappointing. Too many great places in NYC to have mediocre entrees

This restaurant requires credit card guarantee when booking 6 people or more. Food is quite good. For that type of restaurant I expected it could be even better. Most wines are in 3 digits range.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

The bar is perfect for solo diners. It is small and cozy. If you want to enjoy a table, do it. Their service will be top notch no matter the number of guests!

After 10 great years in Meapacking, we're moving Scarpetta Restaurant to the NoMad District. Our final night of service in current location is January 20th, and we will be opening our new location on February 7th. We look forward to serving you at our new location, 88 Madison Avenue (corner of 29th Street and Madison at The James New York - NoMad). The Italian expression, "fare la scarpetta," describes the gesture of taking the little boot-shaped piece of bread to soak up the remaining sauce left in the pot of one's home kitchen. In 2008, Scarpetta received a James Beard nomination for 'Best New Restaurant in America' as well as a coveted three-star review from the New York Times.
