Scalini Fedeli - Chatham
Everything was excellent, service was great as always, we have never had a bad experience here
Love this place
I was a little concerned with a Prix Fixe menu, however there were a wide assortment of choices and more the enough food. The flavors were second to none. Deserts were outstanding. Service was extremely professional.
I wanted the night to be special and it was. The ambiance wasn’t what I hoped, but the food was amazing!
Delightful. We go out to dinner usually twice every week. Casual fare one night and fine dining the second. This was our fine dining date night for the week. The food was magnificent. Every course perfect. There was nothing that could have been better. On our way out I made a reservation to bring the whole family.
Very nice experience. Service and food were excellent.
As expected it can get pricey adding in drinks etc. But overall its a fantastic place. Not a bad comment to make
We were celebrating an anniversary. We were congratulated upon being seated. The server gave us each a glass of champagne and the evening was perfect except for some of the piped-in music. It would have been better without it. Our table was a little too close to the table next to us. They were not loud, but we could hear everything that they said.
Dined here for our anniversary (we do every year) which landed on a Monday. It was very quiet, but was perfect for what we wanted. Service was okay, but the food was outstanding. I had the Bibb salad and veal chop. My husband had the carbonara and veal Milanese. All were delicious. The banana tart and fresh berries were great to end the meal. The wine list is excellent.
Perfect experience all around and all the food was all beyond incredible. We really enjoyed ourselves, thank you Scalini Fedeli for an amazing evening!
What a great experience! The food was outstanding, service even better. Perfect place for special event! We celebrated my birthday and it couldn’t have been better.
Loved the 5 course dinner. Favorites were the veal shank with pasta, veal Milanese, and chocolate philo dessert
Scalini Fedeli is my go to for business dinners in the Chatham area.
We were seated right on time. The food was exquisite and the service was outstanding . We will be back!
Great menu as always.
Best in class service. Outstanding service from Andres, top professional!
A place always to go back and back.
Food was amazing! Charged us a corking fee, was kind of lame, but overall, everything was good. We will be back and celebrate another special occasion.
Too much food and expensive
We wound up taking the entire main course home. I don’t like that
This is our favorite restaurant. When I booked it for Valentines Day there was no mention of a price increase. (To be fair I booked it through Open Table). When I got there and noticed an almost 70% increase in their normal price I assumed there would be something special included. However, unfortunately, there wasn’t. The meal was as delicious as always (although a little heavy on the salt), but there wasn’t anything above and beyond offered for the increased price. In fact, the menu was more limited than normal. They could’ve at least included a glass of wine. I guess we were paying extra for the occasion.
That being said, I will continue to dine here as it’s the best restaurant I know. I’ll just stay away on special occasions.
Went to Scalini Fedeli om Valentine's day after many strong recommendations from friends and family. It was a 5 course pre fixe menu, $100pp.
Beautiful restaurant inside, clearly repurposed from an old house. However we immediately noticed that the lights flickered in the whole restaurant THE ENTIRE TIME. It was inconsistent. Sometimes they would blink 5x in a minute then they'd go a few minutes without blinking at all.
The service was "cold". The gentleman taking our order was very blah. No excitement, nothing. Very flat. He also let like 15 mins go between our 4th course and bringing dessert. Just never came back to us. I had to flag him down and ask how long we migjht have to wait for our dessert because we were kind of restricted in our time together home to our children, and he said, "Oh I didn't know you were ready for dessert." Strange remark!
The food we ordered was delicious. However my second course (not chosen by me, automatically given by the restaurant) was shrimp and my shrimp were cold/inconsistently warmed. They must have been pre-made and just reheated which was upsetting.
It's like to go back when it is not a holiday or pre fixe menu to try it again, because I suspect my dissatiafaction may be largely attributed to that.
I was disappointed. The goat cheese and beet salad had hardly any goat cheese and fewer beets. I asked and the server brought our a plate of beets but since I did not mention the lack of goat cheese that was ignored. Baby arugula was just too tiny and stringy. Angel hair was more spaghettini and the delicate tomato sauce was anything but.
Considering the prices, everything should be flawless.
5 course prefix is definitely worth the price (it's more like a 6 course. Everything was tasty and the menu is quite large and varied. Not your typical Italian menu.
We celebrated my husband’s birthday here as we have in the past. Never disappoints!
"Scalini Fedeli" it was my first time at this eating establishment. They do have "prix fixe" established in relation to your total experience. Every portion from appetizers all the way through dessert was fabulous. Our waiter was more than competent; very well mannered and professional. Food was some of the best in New Jersey.... We will certainly be back.... A great experience and I highly recommend the restaurant if you have never been to Scalini Fedeli; your missing something special.
Decor is a bit outdated, but this place has it where it counts- the delicious food is so very thoughtfully prepared, and service attentive and quick. We had such a great meal. Will definitely return.
Pricy, but for a special occasion there are few places better.
Food is seasoned and sauced amazingly.
You definitely don't leave hungry.
Wonderful food and service.
Always fantastic! The only drawback is the noise level which makes it difficult to have a conversation across the table.
Everything wonderful as usual! Never disappoints.
Was so excited for my husband's birthday dinner and was very disappointed by just about everything! We were seated at a tiny table next to a column in the middle of the floor that could barely hold our plates. The waiter was pleasant but did nothing other than take our order. Plates were delivered by servers from the kitchen and they merely dropped plates on the table with no explanation of what was on the plate - very unusual for a 5 course prix fixe menu with courses before and between those diners order. We both had a veal dish (only one veal dish on the menu). The veal was far from tender and flavor was bland at best. It is a month since we had this meal - very unmemorable and very disappointing. Prior visits had been terrific but clearly things have gone down hill. We will not return.
If you want a memorable dining experience, Scalini Fedeli should be your choice. The interesting descriptions
of the choices on the menu don't match their wonderful flavors. The extras included in their price fix meal are unique delicacies. You too will leave praising this restaurant.
It doesn't get any better than this. Scalini has become our go-to spot for birthdays and anniversaries. However, as elegant as it is, it remains a relative bargain. The price fixed dinner will leave you full for several days and basking in the afterglow. During the week, you can BYO with no corkage charge. We are very lucky to have this place in Chatham.
Very well done
Thank atmosphere and service were excellent. I noticed only one table vacant yet they treated us like the only table there. My 1st course of risotto with mushrooms was just wonderful as my second course of veal Milanese was so soft you didn’t even need a knife to cut it. My only complaint was the Creme Brûlée and upon mentioning it to my server I had someone come from the kitchen in less than 2 minutes with coffees and another dessert on the house! Totally not necessary but so smart on their part. An acknowledgment with an apology would have been ok with me them bringing another dessert and coffees sealed the deal that we would return and tell others how please we were. Matter of fact I work in the hotel industry and think they would be the idea place to refer my client/customers to as I would feel totally secure that they too would have a wonderful experience. Many thanks to the staff and chefs at Scalini Fedeli you made our night!
Amazing food and service ! Our favorite date night place for years
Great New Years' dinner, the wait staff was very attentive. Food was delicious from start to finish
My food was perfect as always. Love The wait staff and Andes is an absolute gem. Love him. Scalini Fedeli is the best restaurant in the Essex, Somerset and Morris county area. Great food, great atmosphere and great customer service.
Every time I come here I have a great meal and service. This time I had the pork chop... Best I ever had.... You will not be disappointed.
From start to finish our meal and service was superb! The meal is 5 courses and every course was flavorful and had you wanting more. We cannot wait to go back.
