One of the highlights of our ArtExpo business trip is being able to eat at Scalinatella. Cozy, noisy, bustling, food is great, it is as alive as the city it is in. Don't miss it!

I when to Scalinatella because we were invited out and someone else picked the place. The food is really an insult to good Italian food, at least up to this century, it was greasy, mediocre. I had ossobuco alla milanese...it should be served with risotto alla milanese, instead was a preboiled rice, the ossobuco sauce was a red sauce...It's crowded and uncomfotable, and the prices are out of this world.

I agree with several of the reviews for Scalinatella. I live very nearby, and had always walked by the restaurant without ever stepping foot inside. I thoroughly enjoyed my first meal there. The food was exceptional and the service was top notch. I eat frequently on the Upper East Side, and I have to admit that this place tops the charts. I have been back since and will continue to so. Yeah, it's a little pricey, but as always you get what you pay for.

Reading the other reviews, I cannot believe anyone would write one bad thing about this place. The service is superb, so is the food and the atmosphere. There are plenty of other restaurants in this town that "cram you in" for less appealing food and service. The prices are a little high but if you're complaining about that, you shouldn't be there in the first place. This place stars above Babbo and the famed Il Mulino, where pretension oozes from their walls. Go, enjoy and relax - it's worth it.

Fantastic food; what ever you want, they will make. Great atmosphere for a crowd or a couple. They cater to your every desire...don't miss dessert........and if you have to ask how much, you can't afford it.

way way way way way too much money for nothing that great. The red snapper almondine was extremely over cooked and was $31. The 1/2 order of ravioli (4 raviolis - small ones at that) was $16. Give me a break. I could have made better at home with pre-made ravioli from food emporium. I wish I had checked this site first.
