Scapa is a fantastic restaurant. The pasta is out of this world. I was served by server Brooke and she did a great job. I love Scapa and would rather go there than go to Msggiano's. Enjoy your meal.

Good variety of reasonably priced Italian dishes. Fresher tasting and more unique preparations than what is offered in the over abundance of italian restaurants in the west suburbs. Service could be more attentive and welcoming. We would go back and have recommended.

Outstanding Thursday Evening Dining
I love this place! Excellent food! Very comfortable. On this occasion we brought 3 people who have traveled the world & they were very pleased with the food and overall experience. We really enjoyed our evening! I had the blackened sea bass. It was probably one of the best meals I have ever had in my life!

Another Awesome Dinner at Scapa's
We had another awesome dinner at Scapa's. The service is outstanding. Our food was fantastic. They have a great wine list too. I love the fact that you can count on their consistency. It's always a home run. Scapa's is by far the best Italian restaurant in the Western Suburbs. Keep up the awesome work!!!

First time there, definitely not the last! Loved the food, loved the service, and loved the 'cabin' they put us in! Romantic and felt like we were totally alone! And the hostess was so nice to come over and talk to us for a few minutes after our meal. She was very sweet and we loved the personal treatment! Can't wait to go back!

Food was spot-on Italian, and a very good value. We had a group ranging in age from 60 to 3 years old, and they handled our table without a problem. Everyone enjoyed their dishes, from appetizers to entrees.

Great Italian Cuisine
I had Scapa's baked cavatelli and it was awesome!!! Love the updated menu and wine list. The staff is always friendly and prompt. You can really tell that the new owners take pride in their restaurant. They've done an amazing job taking Scapa's to the next level. I wish that I could give Scapa's six stars!!!

great anniversary celebration!
We celebrated a wedding anniversary at Scapa, and it did feel special! I had alerted them to the fact that it was a special occasion, and we were seated at one of their "private" tables that have curtains on all sides! That was a lot of fun in itself. The food was excellent, except for some seriously undercooked asparagus that I ended up taking home to finish the cooking. My husband had a baked pasta dish that was plentiful and delicious. My salmon was finished with lemon, artichoke hearts and capers, and cooked perfectly. The service was excellent despite it being a Saturday night. They surprised us with a beautiful and very tasty tiramisu for dessert, compliments of the house. A truly enjoyable experience!

Great service, salads, and most food offerings. Unfortunately, the fish tasted old and over cooked on several occasions. However, we have heard there is a new chef. We will go back because it is a fun place with great service.

Great food, service, decor
Really enjoyed this place. Wonderful menu, great service, and a beautiful building.

A wonderful dining experience
The food was terrific, we got one of those private seating areas, the service was wonderful, and overall it was a spectacular evening.
We even had our 8 year old with us and the kids menu was fine.

Very Nice Time - Will Go Back Again
The service was fantastic, the bread and calamari delicious. Took home the lemon chicken to eat again the next night and enjoyed again. We'll definitely go back.

Great romantic place!
I took my husband to this resturant for our anniversary. We planned an hour for drinks, then dinner. The bartender and waiter were attentative without being annoying.
6/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Frends took us to Scapa's and we enjoyed it so much that we returned with other friends. We were in a small room and were able to visit with our friends easily. Their selection of food was perfect, something for everyone and their garlic rolls were to die for. We will certainly return again.

Our Best Visit Yet
We have enjoyed Scapa many times over the past year, but found this visit to be the very best yet. When we asked what was different about the food, the server told us that they have a wonderful new chef and Sous Chef that have taken the already good food and made it even better. Everything was more flavorful, fresher and more appealing to the eye. Make sure to try the Scallop appetizer with mushroom risotto, it was amazing! The server also said that there was going to be new items added to the menu in the next few weeks. We can't wait. Thanks Scapa for always raising the bar. We are lucky to have you in our community.

A Great Suburban Find!
I was looking for something last minute during the week and came across Scapa. Everything was great! I'll definitely go again. I just wish I could have tried out more of the dishes, like maybe if they did an italian tapas style option but I guess I'll just have to go again to try out some more. We had the zuccinni fritte, talapia francese, chicken picante (YUM), salad, broccoli cheese soup, tiramisu and a few glasses of wine. All excellent.

The food was excellent and
The food was excellent and the service could not be better, however, my husband & I enjoy a "call" cocktail and was shocked to see the price ($10.00 a drink).
We have been charged $7.50 or $8.00 in other restaurants but never as high as Scapa 's . This will certainly determine how often we visit this restaurant.

Better Than Ever!
Last Saturday evening we visited Scapa and really enjoyed our dinner. Calamari appetizer was tender and yummy. Both my husband and I had different tilapia dishes. Fish was cooked perfectly--very moist and seasoned well. In the past I had noticed that the fish entrees seemed a tiny bit overcooked, but not this time! We've enjoyed Scapa many times and definitely will return.

Very Good Meal
The food was very good and the waiter was very attentive to splitting entrees and other special requests.

Wonderful staff very attentive. Family owned. Food was great with generous portions. Loved NaNa's eggplant. They treated us like "family". We will go back soon.

Fantastic Dinner w/ Great Service!
Scapa is the best Italian restaurant in the Western Suburbs...I would put it up with the best in the city. Their Baked Cavatelli is amazing!!! The salads are always the freshest. Also...Scapa has the best servers around. Always prompt but never rushed, happy to answer questions and very attentive. The new owners have really turned the restaurant around. If you haven't had a dinner at Scapa's recently, I would highly recommend that you give them a try. You will love it!!!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great in every way.
The Whitefish Vesuvio was cooked perfectly. My wife had the Scallop and Risotto Entrée and said that it too was fantastic. The staff were all very friendly and eager to take care of us in any way they could.

We arrived early enough so
We arrived early enough so that we were able to pick our own table. We chose a window table. The waiter was friendly, helpful, and attentive, but not over-bearing. We appreciated that soup/salad were included with our entree. The pasta was cooked just right (I'm Italian and that is important for me!) We all enjoyed the hot rolls and olive oil and cheese. We did not feel rushed and were able to sit and chat. I have been there several times and will continue to go there and have recommended it to others.

We have been to Scapa many times and the experience gets better with each visit. I had the filet and It was tender and flavorful. My friend had the macadamia halibut and said it was superb.

Scapa has the best Italian food around! The baked cacvatelli is off the charts. Our table also ordered the Filet. It was an amazing cut, which was cooked perfectly. (The side mash potatoes are fantastic!!!) The staff at Scapa is great. You can tell that they really take pride in their work. I love the consistance that Scapa delivers everytime we dine there. The new owner have done an amazing job taking Scapa up to the next level and above. Cheers! (Almost forgot to mention their Creme Brulee...you can tell they prepare it to order...the carmelized sugar top is served crispy hot. One of my all-time favorites!)

Fabulous service and great food. Our first time and we will certainly be back.

After a far too long an absence 9darn life getting in the way!) we made it back to Scapa's to enjoy their fine food, drink and hospitality. As we have experienced before, they offer a marvelous selection of menu items, and seem to do every one perfectly. Service was friendly and attentive, and our overall experience was everything a nice eveining out should be. Recommend highly for good food and good times.

Great food, awesome menu options, best Italian in the western suburbs!

Chose this based on other review and glad we did. Everything was great and will definitely go back. Owner stopped by to make sure everything was good and you could tell she wanted it to be perfect. Loved this two mini desserts -- ordered one of each for the four of us to share and it was a perfect end to the meal.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Scapa Italian Kitchen is a charming restaurant! The service (in both the bar and dining room) was attentive and personable. Our waitress easily described the specials and answered our questions about the menu. We loved our dining experience and will definitely be back!

Great Italian Food
Went here for the first time last week to celebrate our anniversary and loved it!! Our meals were delicious from the soup at the beginning of the meal to the amazing desserts at the end, will definitely be going back!!

The food is great every time I've gone to Scapa. I've ordered something different each time and it's always great. Server and other staff are always very nice as well.

A great night out!
I've been here several times, but this was our best experience. We had let the restaurant know that it was our son's 9th birthday (and that Grandma was also along celebrating her birthday). Our waiter (Mark) made the night really fun and special for all of us -- all 7! Service was great, food delicious, ambience terrific. They gave us a great table over by the bar, that felt like a separate room. A good time for all!
