A word from SCOOZI
Scoozi began solely as a pizzeria and soon expanded our menu to include italian-american dishes. With this expansion, Scoozi took off and gained a strong following quickly. Since then, Scoozi has had a reputation for our fresh food and delicious Sangria. Scoozi is known for their delicious Sangria(6 Flavors), fresh salads, panini, pizzas, and of course home made Bourbon marinated Steak Tips, all deserts are made in house, Scoozi has over 130 seats, 6 TV's, a granite bar with 16 beers on tap( mostly local & Craft ), a large lounge perfect for gathering with friends or reading a book in the mornings, also perfect for Birthday party's or lunch meetings and of course the 50 seat outdoor patio. Come check us out!

    There were 5 of us in the party. We requested a high chair and it was available for us. The only issue I had was that we were placed at the table right at the door and it was very chilly there. Luckily everyone came about the same time and settled in so the door didn't open much. We all liked our meals and the service was great. We would go again but request a table away from the door on a cold night in Boston!

    Enjoyed drinks and dinner at this spot that is convenient to BU. The food was prepared just as we asked. Our server Olivia was the best part of the experience so will keep us coming back!

    I eat here once a week for lunch or dinner since I work across the street. The food is fresh and delicious and a step above most informal italian/bistro style restaurants. The prices are reasonable and the wine list adequate. The pizza of the day is always imaginative and you can buy it by the slice which I appreciate. The pasta is made fresh locally, something fairly recent. Nice ambiance. A lounge area, outside patio, bar and dining area. The servers are very friendly and cheerful though not always as attentive as I would like. It never disappoints and you can always get a table.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    We had the spinach and artichoke dip, lemon chicken and a chicken and vegetables dish with wine sauce. Food was fresh, especially the pasta. Outdoor seating was great. Will never eat at a Fenway bar again before a game or event. Absolutely coming back here! Two blocks from the park.

    Everything was wonderful as always. Love the location, food, etc. My only issue is I feel for $8 the Sangria's are very small. Either the glasses should be bigger or the cost cheaper. They are good, but $8 for a small glass is pricey.

    I recently had a business meeting that coincided with a Red Sox game. I chose Scoozi as the venue. The services was very friendly and non-rushed. The food was mixed. The appetizers were ok. As for the main meals, Scoozi was advertised as a "homemade" pasta place, but the pasta did not taste very home made. Not only did the pasta disappoint, but the portions were a bit small. Surprising, several guests ordered the antipasto salad as main meals. They came away much happier. My conclusion--if you are on an expense account, the place is acceptable. Otherwise, I would skip it.

    It's hard to put my finger on exactly where Scoozi fits on the restaurant scale. It serves a variety of pizzas, salads, Panini and pastas in a comfortable, casual atmosphere, but it's not a pizzeria. It serves beer and wine and has a clean, trendy vibe, but I wouldn't call it a full out Italian restaurant. What I can tell you is that we had a great dinner -- pasta with garlic, EVOO and parsley, salad, shrimp -- all fresh and tasty, and it hit the spot perfectly. I don't know if we'll be making reservations to take friends across town to eat there, but the next time I'm in the Kenmore Square area for lunch or dinner, Scoozi will at the top of my list.

    What a disappointment. Serve was terrible, we where seated and it took her 10 min to finally show up. Ordered the Caesar salad. Hardly any dressing and the Romano that they use might as well be mozzarella it had no flavor at all. We also got the 3 mushroom pizza. If you like a goat cheese pizza than this is for you that's all you could taste.

    We arrived for our reservation and we were told that Open Table overbooked the restaurant. We had to sit outside with limited table service. It was a cold night and not comfortable for dinning. The pizza was average. Nothing special. Very disappointed.

    We liked the restaurant. The food is primarily Italian, the Fresh pasta and Sangria (6 varieties) were very good. Perfect for a nice Summer dinner out. Down side was the service. It was very rushed. as soon as we walked in, it seemed like our waitress was trying to get us out. This is how the entire hour went. Asked 3X for our dinned order in 5 minutes, salads and dinner arrived at the same time. trying to take plates before we had even finished, etc.. When I made a comment about it, the table next to us said they felt the same way. In conclusion, we really liked the food, wine, desert and the ambiance (contemporary inside, umbrella tables on a brick courtyard outside). We will probably not return due to the way we felt about the service.

  • Inedible steak tip sandwich

    Dined on 6/20/2014
    The steak tips in the steak tip sandwich were so tough that it was impossible to bite into the sandwich. The meat *could* be cut with a sharp knife, but was still impossible to chew. Can't remember getting anything like this in a restaurant -- ever.
