The place has a great vibe with a warm atmosphere, great lighting and a nice buzz. The prices at Scarpetta still keep it in the range of what most would consider a fancy dinner, but the atmosphere is less stuffy and many of the dishes are straightforward. The pasta portion is hearty and generous. Some of the dishes are truly outstanding, while others are just good but not stellar.
