What's the big deal here? – My girlfriend took me here for my bday last Friday night and after reading some of the previous posts, I don't understand the big deal about this place? Sure, the food was very good and presented well, but those prices!! For two people to be $250 is a lot when we didn't even have a bottle of wine.. you think they could atleast take the shell off the shrimp at a place that charges this much! There is also no ambience. Place was very brightly lit. There are plenty of places in NYC that offer the same thing at lower$$$.
This Restaurant is a Phenomenon! – The food is simply remarkable as is the fiery female master sommelier! Half the menu is comprised of original creations while the other half consists of unique slants on orthodox cuisine such as the single super-sized gnocchi with cinammon . . . yumm! The servers at this elegent establishment were knowledgable but not stiff. My party was seated promptly which was essential considering the miniscule "mini bar" at the front. The location leaves a little to be desired as it is 1 block south of Canal St., but the quality and passion that went into the menu and atmosphere make the trip well worth it.
Best Italian in NYC – Highest reccomondation all around for this Italian standout. It is only a matter of time before this secret gem is discoverd by the NYC "A List". We had the 6 course tasting menu - absolutely divine. The artichoke, risotto, and black bass were out of this world. The room is beautiful and the service is stellar. Mimmo is an absolute doll!
One Of The Best Restaurants In NYC – I ate at Lo Scalco two weeks ago and the food was out of this world. From the black truffled risotto (The best I have ever had) to the beautiful and delicious desserts, this restaurant won across the boards. The decor is elegent, the service superb and the food the best in the city. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone. The food was so good that I am going back tonight.
Casual 5-star dining – Eating at this restaurant is really an experience. The moment you walk in the door the decor wows you. The swooping circular beams, dark stained floor and candlelit room make a very welcoming entrance. And the service is just as impressive. The waiters are very knowledgable about the dishes and the history of the restaurant. The master sommelier, one of seven women in the world, was also extremely helpful when choosing a wine. The 5 course meal was INcredible. Beginning with the artichoke appetizer all the way to the outrageous peach sorbet, owner and chef Mauro Mafrici has outdone himself with this great asset to Tribeca. Great for dates, business, or friends!
This is a close to religion food will get – This restaurant is truly one of the best meals in New York City and we have eaten at a great number of restaurants. Without a doubt it is a serious challenger to the top Italian restaurants in New York City. Each dish is carefully prepared and is a tribute to the ingredients being served. The chef is passionate about food. EAT HERE. This is the meal you think about when picturing travelling in Italy.
DEELICIOUS! – What a treat! My friend has been raving about this new restaurant for months. I absolutely loved everything about it. The food is exceptional. The service is outstanding. I highly recommend the tasting menu. It's like a special surprise for each course. Lo Scalco is one of those places that you enjoy so much, you can't wait to tell others...But then you think, "do I really want to share such a find?" but I can't keep a secret, so enjoy!
Adventurous gourmands enjoy an inventive approach to Italian cuisine, served with style in a landmarked Tribeca building. – The Scene
Just south of Canal Street, chef and owner Mauro Mafrici and his architect wife, Kimberly, have transformed a cast-iron building into a thoroughly modern dining destination. After passing a small bar area, diners enter a stark white dining room with arching beams, imposing chandeliers and a subtly opulent air. Efficient servers help diners navigate the menu's many intricacies, and an effusive sommelier is quick with suggestions from the lengthy, all-Italian wine list.
Mafrici's approach to modern Italian fare may seem gimmicky: The menu lists eight seasonal ingredients, each prepared as an appetizer, pasta and entree. But the high quality and artful presentation of delicate homemade tagliolini, tossed with duck ragu, quail eggs and foie gras, and a savory rabbit-eggplant polpettine help erase any skepticism. Rustic desserts like rice pudding and chocolate-hazelnut cake provide a hearty finish.
nice! – Living in downtown NYC, our exceptional choices are limited. So I am happy to see a really good restuarant open! They call it italian, but it definitely is a "artsy" italian (No chicken parmigiana here!) Gnocchi (that are more like chinese dumplings) filled w/ veal over cabbage Were insanly good. Dover sole filled ravioli, filet mignon w/ sausage and roasted tomatoes,lamb chop with parmesean crust. Service was very attentive, wine master to help you choose as well! Decor was comforting and different. GO!!!
Happy New Year's eve – Went to this restaurant on New Year's eve, and we have a very fab dinner. Very flavorful, nice texture dishes. We like their food very much. The restaurant unfortunately gave us a wrong price infomation when we made reservations, but they admitted their mistake and corrected it as soon as we pointed out. The way they handled this was very professional & smooth, and actually was very impressive. As the result, our new year's eve became very unforgettable one. We would definately go back to this restaurant to enjoy the regular menu, which looked very nice, too.
