Scalinatella is one of the many overpriced Italian restaurants that populates the Upper East Side. The food isn’t going to blow your mind, but it’s a good spot if you’re looking for an old-school Italian experience. It’s also fairly likely you’ll run into Ruth Bader Ginsburg or Rudy Giuliani while you’re there. You can decide how you feel about that.
