This is our favorite restaurant! This time we celebrated our anniversary and Scossa made it a special evening. April was a wonderful server. We love Scossa as well, for lunch or dinner, anytime we are in the area.

Food was excellent, but service
Food was excellent, but service was rushed. Plates and drinks were removed from table without asking first. No need for this since restaurant was not filled and we were the last sitting. My wife's wine glass still had wine in it.
Vegetables that went with our meals were simple but a perfect complement. Fish and steak were cooked perfectly.
Would definitely go back, but next time will warn server to slow down.

This is absolutely my favorite
This is absolutely my favorite restaurant. No matter where I go I compare the food and service to Scossa. Have found equals around the country, but none better.

Food was fantastic. Service was suburb. Ambience was beautiful with muted color scheme, great lighting, all contribute to a enchanting evening. We ordered the fixed 3-course dinner and were very happy with choices. Veal scallopini was delicious as was the soup starter....I had the minestrone, but heard mention that the fish soup was exceptionally good (not one of the choices). Tiramisu was spectacular as was the cappuccino. After our main course, our server encouraged us to linger over our Pinot noir before dessert was served and we did. No rushing. The server, Olga , was exceptional and they had a full compliment of wait staff that never let our water glasses go dry. Wonderful restaurant. We'll be back!

This is among the many times I have dined at Scossa with my husband and friends. We have never been disappointed. Everyone raved about the food and the ambience and service all added up to a perfect evening. We will continue to come here!

Impeccable Service & Lovely Meal
It is rare to find a restaurant with old-fashioned elegant and non-intrusive service. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. My dining partner had the sauteed scallops and mushrooms appetizer which was excellent. I had the fish soup which is made with whatever fish is fresh and tastes fresh as a result. The initial mix up with my soup, was corrected quietly and graciously. We split a half order of eggplant parmesan next. This was freshly made with thick slices of eggplant. My dining partner had veal parmesan which was very good. I tried that day's special which was a lamb shank. I have to say it was among the best I've ever had. A dish to savor. Desserts were beautiful, including a peach sorbet served in a frozen peach.

I wished there would have been more of a selection. What I had was very good, but would have like more options.

Great Milestone Birthday Place
Very happy with Scossa! We sat at a round table in the back and had no problem hearing anyone in our large party of seven. The food and service were great. You can actually create your own pasta dish -- we loved that. Highly recommended for visitors to St. Michaels/Easton area.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
we really enjoyed our lunch............i'm sure that a dinner would have been great !
5/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were celebrating our anniversary. They were opened on a Monday night, which is rare on the Eastern Shore. The food was good especially the smoked salmon. Veal, salmon entree, and Caesar salad were tasty. The bread was great, we had two baskets. assistant servers were attentive. A Cosmo was great- good bartender. We left with a bad taste in our mouth, so to speak though, because our waitress got busy with a larger table and we sat there for 10-15 minutes after we finished and when she finally came to us, she left the bill and never asked us if we wanted dessert. We were dumbfounded, paid the bill and left. I would think that a restaurant like this would be more courteous.

Lovely dinner with friends
We had a wonderful meal, friendly, attentive waiter, Jeremy, in a delightful outdoor atmosphere. Food was delicious, superbly prepared and served.

Great food, atmosphere andservice~
Will definitely return, looking forward to trying different dishes . Service was exceptional.
Atmosphere was even better than expected.Hoping to try to eat outdoors on terrace next time.

I brought my oldest and best friend of 55 years to celebrate his retirement at Scossa and although the food was very good the service was lacking, the waiter was extremely inattentive and the we waited almost an hour for our food to be brought to the table. I generally have an excellent experience at this restaurant and often bring out of town guests here to dine. I hope this was just an off night and not a permanent condition.

We celebrated a special anniversary at this restaurant and enjoyed it immensely. Great service with excellent food and while modest in size; a great wine list. All of our courses were great including an octopus carpaccio, salads (avocado and endive as well as a Caesar with white anchovies), rockfish, and crispy sweetbreads. It was a great night.

Wonderful Italian gem in quaint
Wonderful Italian gem in quaint MD neighborhood. Delicious, homemade ingredients, excellent service, romantic ambiance.

Arrived at 6:00 for a Sunday evening dinner with friends. The atmosphere is very charming. Within 30 minutes the place started to fill up. While the server was very knowledgeable and helpful we started to feel rushed and asked to slow the meal down. Presentation was beautiful and the food was very good. The veal was a little tough. I would not hesitate to go back or recommend this restaurant.

Great Italian food in Easton, MD
Best service I had in quite a while...know what they are doing.
Someone had told me the portions were small...NOT the case. Perfect size...I even took home a doggy bag.

Scoosa is a top flight restaurant
Scoosa is a top flight restaurant that would thrive in New York, Washington or any large city, but happens to be in Easton, MD. The food and service level were at a very high level and our dinner was completely delightful.

Great food, service lacking
Always go to Scossa on my birthday. The food was excellent, the service however,was lacking.

Worth the Drive
We were a party of eight and we made a late reservation for a Saturday night. We were seated in a private room in the back. It was obvious from the appetizers through desserts that things are prepared by a master chef, with fresh, quality ingredients. Everyone in the party loved everything that was presented.
The server was professional and accommodated any requests made, including a special pasta dish requested. I wish them all the best, so that they will still be there upon our next return trip.
Scossa has to be the best Italian restaurant in the Chesapeake area, get in your car and drive, you won't be disappointed.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Scossa is the rare combination of the elegant and the accommodating. The food is excellent and very well thought out, but staff also invite diners to make requests. I have rarely encountered a restaurant so open to this, and never one with such superb food. The waiter was older and experienced though I was disturbed to see him rolling his eyes at the requests and orders of other diners, and I overheard remarks that were a bit sarcastic.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am a regular diner at this restaurant because it is so wonderful! Beautiful interior, great staff and excellent food!! It is ALWAYS top notch. You cannot go wrong with Scossa!!

Dined here on a Friday evening
Dined here on a Friday evening to celebrate two family birthdays. Despite previous reviewers comments, service was exceptional. Very accommodating for even our twelve year old. They will allow half portions and also allow an entree to be comprised of half portions-- great for the adults who couldn't make up their minds. My husband's veal was excellent as was my eggplant parmigiana.

Bar Menu is Good
If you don't feel like a full meal, check on the bar menu, including half portions of various pastas. Very taste.

great food for a special occasion
Went to eat here with my fiancée and it was everything we had hoped. Servers were great and attentive. The food was amazing, we would come back in an instant.

Farwell Dinner w/Friends
We dined with two couples who are moving away from the area shortly and wanted a memorable evening. We were not disappointed. Scossa has been our favorite restaurant in Easton since we moved here 6 years ago. The food as always was prepared perfectly and the service and ambience were impeccable. We started off with an appetizer of pureed corn soup which did not disappoint. Three members of our party had the Veal Ossobuco and they all said it was the best they ever had. Two of us had the Seafood Risotto w/lobster, shrimp, and calamari and it was prepared perfectly as was the Veal Parmigiana that my wife had which is consistently one of the best versions I have ever had the pleasure.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Comfortable and pleasant.
We have been to Scossa many times, and will continue to go back. Basically, we find the restaurant relaxing: the modern decor is nice, the benches are comfortable, the food and wine are comforting, the service is pleasant, and carpeting softens the usual restaurant noise.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Scossa. The decor was tasteful, but not overdone. The guests included couples as well as groups of adults and families with kids, yet we were able to carry on a conversation without having to speak up or have difficulty hearing across a table. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. Our server was wonderful - very friendly and offering helpful suggestions as we evaluated the menu and appearing during the meal at just the right times. The food was all very good. The risotto was some of the best we've eaten and the gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce was very good. Overall, very positive experience. We would recommend it and visit again ourselves.

A gem in Easton
This is our second time dining at Scossa. Last year we were graciously greeted by the owner and his wife. Our group of 4 found the menu choices to be creative,delicious and offering sufficient options. Our eating preferences ranged from omnivore,vegetarian,to only eats fish or chicken.We were allllll happy.
This year our group increased to 6 and each one of us shared and delighted in our dining options. The one exception were the scallops, which were a little too salty. We saw the owner's wife, who remembered us from last year and welcomed us warmly.
Scossa will be one of those places we look forward to enjoying when we visit Easton for the Jazz Festival!!

Delightful scene for a quiet Sunday repast after worship services. Wait staff very pleasant and thorough in their duties. Offerings are varied and pleasing for all tastes.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for any occasion
Having dined repeatedly at Scossa, this was my first lunch event. Was greeted by a varied and appealing menu --- always a good sign when it's difficult to make up one's mind. Service is always attentive, though not over-bearing.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hadn't eaten there for a long time
Really glad we went back. The caesar salad and the risotto were just fabulous and the limoncello dessert cake was also good. We were with another couple and were seated at one of those round banquettes in the corner. It was great -- almost felt like a private room. Lighting level was very good -- low enough to be warm and intimate, but not so low you had to strain to read your menu and see your food.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Attracts local clientele and wait staff knows returnees and their preferences. Wait staff is knowledgeable and can describe specials completely. Slight changes to menu selections accepted without extra charge. Friendly atmosphere.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service a little slow
Been here several times service was the slowest we've ever experienced still love the place!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
High quality food! Loved the veal cannelloni and veal chop! Chop was like butter ...... Need better booze though, some bourbon selections would be nice!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always delicious, well prepared dishes. Creative menu and service that makes you feel like a regular even if you're not.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great evening, happy I tried it.
My wife and I decided to try a local place for a date night. Service, wine list, food was all very good. It has more of an energetic than romantic ambience to it. But that's to be expected on a Saturday evening. I would recommend it to someone seeking Italian cuisine. I don't know that I call it a destination restaurant.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Above and beyond service
While there was a glitch with our reservation, the staff went above and beyond excellent service to make sure we had a wonderful evening. The hostess was very friendly, and helpful. Our server was outstanding: knowledgeable and flexible. We were in no way rushed. Even the chef stopped by to ask about our satisfaction with the food. After a rocky start, it turned into a perfect evening for both our guests and us.

Steal this chef!
Surprisingly delightful menu featuring fresh fish and vegetable choices cooked to perfection.

Thoroughly enjoyed lunch
We had lunch at Scossa on Sunday, Nov 10, 2013. The selection was good. One of us opted for the special menu and had sauteed chicken with capers and lemon sauce, and the other had grilled vegetables. Vegetables on both plates were fresh, cooked to perfection with a bit of crunch. Chicken was well cooked, and the service was impeccable: prompt without a hovering waiter.

Women Who Sail
The service was wonderful and very patient while 6 women chatted and decided what to order. We exchanged presents and left a mess of glitter - for which we are very sorry. We did not feel rushed and had time to catch up on a year of activities. The food was excellent and the portions were just right.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great northern Italian - sweetbreads, liver, carpaccio, calamari. Good wine list, nice atmosphere, wonderful wait staff.
