We expected this place to be a busy and bustling place because of the great reviews but it was a more tranquil dinning experience, food was great, get the raviolo!!

This chef must believe that more ingredients create a successful dish. Every single item was covered with a gloppy sauce of some sort, and the only common theme was heavy, heavy butter usage. By the third course we were literally unable to finish the prix fixe meal, and we asked for a check. The only positive result was that it gave us more laughs than we've ever had in a supposedly fine restaurant. We simply could not believe the hideous quality of the food.

We have frequented Scalini many times with complete satsifaction, until last Saturday! We waited almost forty minutes to be seated for our 8PM reservation that was confirmed twice.No drink was offered as in the past. After we were seated, it was quite a long time before we were greeted by the waitor;fortunately, we had drinks from the bar. The prefix is now $70.00 with a long list of specials - all with add ons. The veal chop has a $20.00 add on, even some appetizers have add on. I ordered the scallops. In the past, there were six scallops; now there are only four. The portions are smaller and the price is higher. I notified Scalini that it was my wife's birhtday in advance. They brought a tacky candle on top of her desert and left promptly. In the past, they offered chocalate covered strawberrie and biscotti with the coffee serving, not tonight! I have always raved about the service, the food, the value,and the attention to details. But, this past experienced was vastly different and most disappointing. The star is tarnished for me.

I've been to Scalini Fedeli three times, most recently last Monday with a group of seven fussy friends. I picked the place because I like it so much but was nervous about my friends' reactions. They all loved it! Even the fussiest -- a woman who hates to go too far from the Upper East Side, said after dinner: "I don't mind coming to Tribeca for a meal this good." The food is excellent and creative. There are alot of extras -- at the beginning, and before dessert. The $65 prix fixe is an incredible value. The service at Scalini Fedeli is excellent and the setting/atmosphere couldn't be more civilized and relaxing. I look forward to going back soon.

What a great find in the downtown area. The food was spectacular. My only complaint was there was not enough time during each course. Food was expensive, but portions were adequate.

The ambiance, service and food were excellent.Not the typical Italian-American menu, unusual combination of ingredients which produced mouth watering flavors, particularly my starter of risotto with mushrooms,petit peas and crispy zucchni. Great restaurant to be able to actually converse with fellow diners and not be overwhelmed by music and loud chatter! We were a party of 3 on Jan 5 2011 and will definitely return.

I went here for my 30th birthday dinner and had an exceptional meal. My family and I were not rushed, the service was excellent, the food was excellent, and I would highly recommend this restaurant. Get the egg yolk ravioli appetizer and the Warm Doughnut dessert and you will not be disappointed. I will certainly be coming back here for a special occasion!!
