The restauarnt looked beautiful and had a good vibe. Some in our group requested minor variations to their entrees which was met with complete acceptance by our server. Menu was very inetersting and 1/2 pasta portions were available which allowed some to try multiple pasta selections. Food was delicious.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMScoozi'sScoozi's has been a sure thing for over 25 years. Everytime I dine at this restaurant I leave with a smile on my face.

We were seated, ordered, served and done in under an hour. It was a Friday night and it would have been nice to have a little time to enjoy a glass of wine before having our courses brought out lightening quick and the experience over in such a short time.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service, and atmosphereGreat food, service, and atmosphere!

Food excellent.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a reservation at 7:15We had a reservation at 7:15 on a Friday and were seated on time. The restraurant is very large but the sound level was not bad. We asked our waitress for some food recommendations and she was very helpful. In particular she recommended the Kale Salad. I couldn't believe it but my sister-in-law who ate it thought it was excellent. I hadn't been to Scoozi for many years but I found the food and service to be very good. Additionally, we had the restaurant park our car and found that on Friday nights if you spend at least $25 in the restaurant and show the valet your receipt, the parking is free.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOur apartment is right downOur apartment is right down the street and we love coming to Scoozi!

Both were delicious! The veal meatballs were a little overcooked but still very tasty. They came with a chunky marinara sauce that had a little spice to it which I liked. The kale salad surprised me, it was excellent! The honey ricotta cheese really made it though. Yummy!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good. WeThe food was very good. We all enjoyed it. Ambiance was great as the building is old and was preserved. My only complaint was the cocktails. I tried 2 types before switching to wine - that is something I never do. I just didn't like either cocktail. However the wine was really good!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood great , service ???Have gone here before. Service always has been very good, except this past Saturday, April 4th. Waitress was indifferent at best. Had to ask several times for her to take our order and replenish bread tray. She seemed to not be interested in being a waitress, more like a chore.....4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a great experience atI had a great experience at scoozi. Good food and atmosphere.

Highly recommend to everyone. Our server was very informative and always available. The manager John was very friendly and made you feel at home. Our dinner was wonderful but the chocolate cake "to die for" YUM!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIt has been quite a whileIt has been quite a while since I've been to Scoozi! and I now don't know why its taken me so long to come back, as we had a simply outstanding meal and a fantastic time! The room is lovely, love the openness and the energy....yet still very cozy. Everything we ordered was impeccable! We loved our appetizers. The beets were SO yummy, grilled calamari perhaps the best I have ever had!, the lobster pizza was out of this world! Chopped chicken salad was superb! But oh my...the braised short rib was exceptional! I have a few favorite restaurants that serve braised short rib, and thought I had already found the best...until I ate at Scoozi! Their braised short rib is now my official favorite and #1 in my book! LOVE Scoozi!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMScoozi has transformed fromScoozi has transformed from the must-be place of the 90s to an established, fun restaurant where you can always count on good food and fun atmosphere.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time here and we willFirst time here and we will definitely return. The name Scoozi, is a little corny so we had avoided it expecting a touristy Epcot Italian experience. What we found instead was a unique and beautiful interior with great food and excellent service. Our waiter, Patrick, was the best.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always end up at Scoozi.We always end up at Scoozi. Their bread is the best, ever. We could eat an entire loaf. Maybe we did. Got there an hour early and asked to be seated when possible. We had already opted for the pub tables near the bar when our name was called at 6:58. I thought that was a bit weak, but we got the best waiter in the place. This guy juggled a bunch of tables but he was on. Shrimp/scallop risotto was spot-on and the arrabiata good as ever (do yourself a favor and go mozzarella instead of the goat cheese). Plus I could see the NCAA tournament on the bar TV!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place was awesome. ThisThis place was awesome. This is the most upscale kid-friendly place in the area that we have found. We love that our 3-year-old daughter was able to make her own pizza (for free). It was a very enjoyable experience and certainly one we'll repeat!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMScoozis continues to be aScoozis continues to be a favorite stop for great food and great ambience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMScooziWe went for a family birthday party and first time visit. We were delighted with the experience. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. The food was wonderful and was served to us timely. The decor and atmosphere were perfect.....very relaxing. We will recommend Scoozi and definitely dine there again!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMYou MUST eat here!I consider this one of my best finds during my trip. With the first bite of food, my boyfriend and I fell in love with the place. The food was full of flavor and fantastic. The restaurant has a large, open design and is very nice. I was surprised to find it was moderatly priced. It's great for a couple on a special night out, large groups, families, or casual dining. The waitstaff was attentive but but not overly bothersome. The only negative I found was that the place was rather loud. I highly recommend this place and I will definitely be going back when I return to Chicago.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful place with a greatWonderful place with a great atmosphere and very welcoming employees. I brought my mum here for her birthday and had a great time. The prices here were better than I would expect something in this area to be and the food was fantastic.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter all these years ScooziAfter all these years Scoozi is still as good as it gets !3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMscoozi is a wonderful italianscoozi is a wonderful italian restaurant.

We love the appetizers and Pizza and always save room for dessert.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMgluten free friendlyLoved this tucked away restaurant. I picked it because they accommodate gluten free customers and my husband can still order a regular pizza. I was impressed that they gave me a full GF menu before even sitting down. Food was great and service was knowledgable and friendly. Can't wait to go back.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA Chicago favorite; we goA Chicago favorite; we go here every time we are in town! The butternut squash ravioli is my favorite dish!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night out!The overall experience was great! The service was completely satisfactory.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome for Restaurant Week!Came here for Restaurant Week and this place definitely had one of the better deals. First course was a choice of appetizer, not just soup or salad but appetizer which was great (yummy calamari). The bread was awesome too. There was also a good selection of main courses. I thought the pasta seemed kind of hard, but not terrible. There were a handful of choices for dessert - loved the tiramisu. And finally it came with a glass of wine INCLUDED! Unfortunately the place was crawling with teenagers, notably 2 tables of 10 each next to us. But service was still great. I might come back during the week when there probably aren't as many teenagers...2/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
