Folks,I have to believe this is the best food in town.
The Osso Bucco is delicious as are the martinis.
Love the energy of the place and the food is most always delicious. You can eat reasonably or spend a lot. I also like to go there on Saturdays for a leisurely lunch and glass of wine.
LUNCH saves $$ - if you're retired or on a tight budget, but love good food, try Scalo for lunch. The chef's daily specials are supurb and often quite inventive. Lower prices at lunch don't mean stingy portions, by the way.
The tables are linen covered, but then covered with butcher paper giving less than the ambiance of Carabas. The wine list is impressive, but they have none in stock. The bread was stale as we found that they do not bake it there. It is delivered weekly and heated there to make us think they baked it (nice). My in-laws recently visited us and my wife and I wanted to take them for a nice dinner. They saw a nice review of Scalo in the airline magazine, so off we went. What a mistake.. We arrive for our reservation to have the manager sit us at the front of the restaurant for over 30 minutes while being ignored and watching people who arrived after us without reservations seated prior to us. When I said something to the manager, she said `let me get you a glass of wine`. I don't know where she obtained this wine, but it certainly was not from a bottle. Finally we are seated and when our food arrives after a short eternity, we faced further disappointment. The food (as they call it) was luke warm and substandard. The pastas were undercooked (not aldente, undercooked) and the meats were tough and tasteless, as if they had been frozen and refrozen. My mother-in-law could not even palate her $29 ribeye steak. When we requested assistance from our waiter, he went to the manager, and older woman whom we heard across the restaurant raised her voice to the waiter saying `I don't have time for their sh*t!!` never came to assist. Strangely, she was doing nothing but talking to the cook while having what appeared to be a cocktail. The waiter then went to another manager who was a very young looking woman who said, `I will be right there.` She quickly disappeared into the bar where I later saw her sitting, never to return to our table. We were more than outraged and embarrassed. Finally, we chose to pay for our disappointing dinner and leave. The only person who even attempted to give us a good dinner was our waiter who I feel very sorry for. At least he cared enough to try......
I have worked for Scalo and Steve Paternoster for years. If you had seen the way your food was prepared and what it went through before it got to you, you would not review so high. You would probably be sick. That's not even considering the conditions that your food was stored in... Temperature, roaches, etc... You would be sick... I won't eat there. We also did have lasagna on the menu not long ago. That stuff sat for weeks and we still sold it. The daily specials by the way are made from scrud
The previous review I wrote about Scalo was accurate as for their offerings, however the ratings that appeared were too low....So consider this review an amended review and that I rank Scalo very high on the list of Italian Restaurants, but do not confuse it with your run of the mill family type restaurant...it is NOT!In fact it is NORTHERN ITALIAN type fare, so you will not find lasagna or spaghetti w/meatballs there. What you will find is specialty pasta dishes, excellent salads, sandwiches, oven fired pizzas & uncommon offerings that are absolutely fabulous and freshly prepared.
Scalo is among the finest restaurants in NM and rates very highly with me. The pastas are excellent & they have an excellent variety of Paninni type sandwiches & salads. The dishes are individually prepared & the desserts are outstandingly original & luscious. An honest effort is made here at being the best. I highly recommend Scalo...Top of my list!!!
Not much to eat if you're vegan... Salad.
