Elegant Italian Fare
Welcome to Scarpetta
Scarpetta Rittenhouse has temporarily suspended operations in accordance with mandates from the City of Philadelphia and to prioritize the health and safety of our guests, team, and community. We are evaluating the situation daily and will continue to provide updates on our reopening later this summer.
"Fare la scarpetta" is an Italian expression describing the gesture of using a boot-shaped piece of bread to scrape and soak up any remaining sauce left in the pot. From that familial gesture, representative of taking pleasure in and savoring a meal to the very last bite, comes the name of the best new Italian restaurant in Philadelphia, Scarpetta.
The latest addition to The Rittenhouse, Scarpetta serves casually elegant Italian fare. From dishes like fluke crudo, creamy polenta and braised short ribs, to spaghetti, foie gras ravioli, cavatelli, branzino, veal tenderloin and much more, Scarpetta proudly showcases the best of local producers through thoughtful Italian fare.
Scarpetta Rittenhouse will be reopening for brunch and dinner, serving in our new outdoor dining café beginning Friday, September 4th. We are now accepting reservations.
Current Hours of Operation
Dinner: Tuesday - Saturday from 5:30pm to 9pm
