Elegant Italian Fare
Welcome to Scarpetta
"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.
