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.

I have lived in NYC most of my life. My wife and I eat out often. We have been to all the great restaurants. This restaurant is good. The waiters are obnoxious however. I was asked if I would like some prosciutto (sp). Sure, I said. I'll have some, why not. This was prior to our ordering. Later that evening, when the check came, there was a charge for $70 for prosciutto! There were 6 in our party. Six slices of prosciutto that I naively believed were on the house were $70! Average dishes are $40. Appetizers are high teens to over $20. A good dinner should be $100-$150 in my opinion., This was over $200 per couple with drinks. Not worth it.

For all the hype, great reveiws, this place was terrible. Not only do they cram you in, they turn up the heat, and the food is completely overpriced for what it is. What a dissapointing joint, and the customers are all cheesy snobs. What a waste.....
