Modern Italian

  • 89

Located downtown at the edge of the meatpacking district, Scarpetta is celebrated for refined, soulful Italian fare. Handmade pastas shine — like spaghetti with tomato and basil and foie gras ravioli — alongside a deep Italianate wine list in this elegant and casual setting. Scarpetta means “little shoe” (or the shape bread takes when used to sop up the remains of a delicious dish) and represents the pleasure of savoring a meal down to its very last taste.
