Was a privilege being able to come into the James No-Mad and to sit down at the table in Scarpetta. When you first walk in the atmosphere is almost as if it’s a secret garden with ivy hanging from the ceiling when you first walk...More

The quality of food and service was great, but it was a little bit pricey. The table we were given wasn’t great, as we were very close to other tables.

Came here with some friends and had a great time. Food was phenomenal, people were beautiful, and the night life was on point. Downstairs is a pretty cool bar with live music. Make reservations ahead of time, reservations fill quickly here. Pasta was outstanding!

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!

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.
