With three private dining rooms, and one gala space onsite, Scarpetta is the ideal culinary destination for private events. 

The original Scarpetta opened in New York City’s Meatpacking District in 2008 to a critically acclaimed 3-star review from the NY Times. The restaurant’s name is derived from the Italian expression, “fare la Scarpetta,” which means to savor a meal to the last bite.

The philosophy of Scarpetta’s kitchen is to create bold flavors by amplifying the essence of seasonal ingredients. The signature pastas are made in-house daily and are paired with the highest quality, locally-sourced ingredients. Scarpetta’s famous Spaghetti Tomato & Basil is nothing short of classic simplicity in both taste and preparation.

Scarpetta has always been at once informal, comfortable and elegant, grounded with a passion for old world hospitality. Guests can enjoy ordering several dishes to share for the table, with a menu built for sharing and conviviality to inspire the essence of a stylish and carefree dinner party.
