MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Situated just a short walk from the Scarsdale Metro-North Station, Café Alaia doesn't boast much of an exterior, tucked amidst a row of unremarkable stores. However, thanks to its cozy décor, soaring ceilings and welcoming owner (Vincenzo Alaia), the dining room is all buzz. Thoughtfully arranged tables, framed by rustic wooden chairs, typically bear elevated versions of regional Italian dishes. Pastas are a highlight and fittingly so, like tender spinach- and ricotta-filled ravioli bathed in a melted sage-infused butter. Squid stuffed with crab, spinach and breadcrumbs is augmented by perfectly poached cherry tomatoes, not unlike the fresh figs set atop a crostata di pere.A tiny service bar in the back is ideal for solo diners who want to linger.
