everything about this meal was amazing. first of all, the number of choices on a prix fixe menu suprised me. probably the most I've seen. and even the things I don't like looked good the way they were put together. everything we ordered was beyond excellent. get the venison chop. seriously. we were also given a full extra first course (which the chef came out to explain), a tasting plate of a ravioli, and two extra dessert dishes. I don't know if that's because it was my girlfriend's birthday or just for the sake of it, but either way, it was very much appreciated (and good). her dessert came with a candle and a "happy birthday" message on the plate. the staff was all extremely friendly...not only to us, but to the tables around us. this is truly one of the best dining experiences I've had. I can't recommend the restaurant enough.

This is one of the best restaurants in NYC. For some reason there is no "hype" surrounding this place but there should be. Traditionally one does not think of Italian food in this way but this rmenu can easily stand up to Bouley, Danielle, Danube and the rest. The food was exquisite and the service was impeccable. Our waiter Tim's punctuated and precise description of every ingredient in the specials made each dish come alive and made it difficult to select just one! The service overall was flawless, informative and made this truly a perfect meal. We were not disappointed with a single dish. Our only complaint is that it is a fixed price menu and so we could not taste more dishes! Next time we will do the regional tasting menu just to try as many as these amazing items as we can. Thanks for a great dinner!

I've only eaten here once, but had a wonderful experience. Ordered the Foie Gras and Pork Chop, which both deserved a 5/5. And while it's tough to call any restaurant with a $65 dollar price fix a "good deal," I think that, for what it's worth (and my opinion is worth A LOT), Scalini Fedeli is a better value than most nyc restaurants of a similar ilk. I think the fact that this restaurant HAS NOT been ripped by any menu pages reviewers is, in and of itself, very telling. I've found that most "high end" restaurants on this cite get stuck with at least a reviewer or two that went there for a "special occasion" and found the experience to be "not worth it." To these naysayers I offer the following advice: an expensive meal in NYC is probably never "worth it" if you're struggling to get your kids through college. Wait it out for restaurant week, and stop posting uninformed reviews.

It'll cost you, but it's worth it. Great service, old school, and excellent food. You don't feel rushed, you're treated well, and you come out glad you went in.

It is the best place to have a nice italian! oh, other than the waiter speaking Italian to us, it is the best place to go out.

Wow...what a fantastic Restaurant experience. We looked up Italian Restaurants in Zagat. It was highly rated and we were more than impressed. From start to finish, the meal was outstanding, with the proper Service level. There are enough daily specials to make you forget the fantastic menu. Do a couple of trips to this Restaurant in order to have a taste of their many options. I've been to many Italian Restaurants all over the world and this one is definately one of the Best.

Scalini Fedeli was a delicious treat. At a moderate 60 dollars per person, everyone at the table can have the most amazzing meal of their lives. This place makes you think you are back in a fancy, old restaurant that has witheld tradition- a nice change from most of the top NYC restaurants these days. The service was amazing, with the waiters anticipating (accurately) every need of everyone at my table. The wine selection is extensive, but slightly high in price. The food is its own section: The food here was amazing. The chef pairs unique ingrediants together, inspiring me to try food i might have never eaten anywhere else, and all of what i tried was a pleasent suprise. The nice added touch of having a small taste of one dish on the house was a classy suprise, as was the palette cleanser. Besides the amazing food, the desserts were to die for. As i said, this place has elegance, and class. They treat all the customers as though they are celebrities (who also dine there), and dinner for two for under $150 is really a steal!
