Italian Restaurant, Scarlatto, Now Open

  Last modified on December 7th, 2021

Scarlatto Opens

An Italian restaurant called Scarlatto is now open in the former home of Mana, at 646 Amsterdam Avenue between 91st and 92nd Streets. Mana closed in 2019, after serving organic and vegan plates for over thirty years.

Scarlatto’s owner is Thomas Bifulco, and there’s another location on restaurant row, at 317 West 46th Street. He was originally aiming to open the Upper West Side restaurant in April of this year, but that didn’t happen for obvious reasons.

Scarlatto’s cuisine is Italian with “Roman influences.” The food and drink menus are both pretty extensive.


Here are some teasers …
