My husband and I were visiting NYC and came to this restaurant at the suggestion of a friend. Somehow we were lucky enough to get a reservation on a Saturday night with just a few days notice. The restaurant was easy to find and the hostesses were very friendly. We were seated pretty quickly even though the restaurant was packed.... More

I dream about their dishes here. Every time I come, I only order 3 things, and a glass of amazing cabernet. I get their Spaghetti and their Short Rib & Bone Marrow Agnolotti and their Duck & Foie Gras Ravioli. This would be my choice for my last meal on Earth! I'm so in love with it and I can... More

This was an excellent meal. Menu is relatively small but there were several things I wanted to order. I ended up with the braised short rib and bone marrow agnolotti. It was amazing. Best thing I ate on this NYC trip. Excellent wine selection and good service.

My husband and I were at Chelsea Market which was a mad house so I looked on my phone for a nearby restaurant. Scarpetta came up and we walked down to find it. And we walked in circles, how can we not find it? There's not much space between Hudson and 14th and we couldn't find it. We gave up... More

Food was good, and the waiters very profesional, however we reseved a table for 3, weekday dinner. I run late, and made my wife and her friend wait. The restaurant would not let them get a table until I arrived. NY policy? This is the only reason I would not come back.

Nice food, wine expensive but very good, for the price I would have expected a lot more but location obviously helps justify the price.

Fairly pricey and portions are modest in size, but oh, so good. Their home made pastas are divine, but nothing disappoints. Be forewarned that the mixed drinks are pretty expensive and so is the wine list, so heavy drinkers will be saddled with a hefty bill. But if you are looking for some great Italian - you have found it.

We dined here along with 3 couples to celebrate a birthday. The location is great - but that is the only positive thing I can say (and this is not coming from a high maintenance foodie). The table was so tight we could barely flex - but hey, that's Manhattan! Beyond the aesthetics, be prepared to hit the halal or... More

Wonderful restaurant, dread service, good wine list. Food perfectly prepared. I just wanted more. Small portions are my only complaint. Would definitely return and recommend.

Scarpetta is LDV Hospitality's signature restaurant concept that first launched in New York's Meatpacking District. 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.
