Mediterranean Social Meets Newport Boating Culture; Scarpetta at Gurney’s Newport Resort and Marina Now Opened! Fresh pastas and locally sourced seafood served in the expansive indoor/outdoor dining room, designed and inspired by the Riva Yacht in honor of Carlo Riva.
Opened in September 2016, Scarpetta's newest location is a bi-level space overlooking Rittenhouse Square. Both the dinner and bar menu are made specifically to highlight Philadelphia's unique local ingredients, with a lunch menu to come later in the fall of 2017. “We’re honored to be joining Philadelphia’s incredible dining scene,” says LDV Hospitality’s President/Founder John Meadow. “There is so much talent and energy in this city, and we look forward to being among some of the best chefs and restaurateurs in the country.”
LDV Hospitality’s iconic Scarpetta made its way out east with Scarpetta Beach, the beachfront version of its original Meatpacking District location. The soulful Italian hotspot delivers the same signature classics on the menu, in addition to more seasonally influenced dishes and local produce and seafood selections paired perfectly with a robust Italian wine list. Inspired by Gurney’s sprawling 1,000 ft private beach, Scarpetta Beach boasts an airy, mid-century modern aesthetic infused with the Indigo and seaside hues of the Resort’s surroundings. The 110-seat interior dining room and private dining space is lined with French doors leading out to the restaurant’s outdoor terrace, which seats an additional 100, and provides spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean.
The philosophy of Scarpetta’s kitchen is one of creating bold flavors by amplifying the essence of seasonal ingredients. The signature pastas are made in-house daily and are paired with the highest quality, locally sourced ingredients. Scarpetta’s famous Spaghetti Tomato & Basil is nothing short of classic simplicity in both taste and preparation. The understated, yet elegant approach to design creates an environment that is simultaneously chic, welcoming, and inspiring.
