    Scossa is our go-to restaurant when we want a special meal for two and when we have out of town foodies visiting. Scossa never disappoints. Our server, Richard, really understands the menu and offers excellent advice on wine pairings. The kitchen will accommodate diner preferences. If you do not like the kale that comes with the dish, they will substitute spinach or broccolini. Our guests asked for their veal chop rare and it came to their exact specification. Scossa is consistently excellent.

    In an area with many fine restaurants , Scossa's stands out. This is where the locals go when they want excellent food and great service. Of course in Easton the 'locals' include international businessmen, World Bank executives and former Senators. Scossa's is expensive, but it is worth it.

    Lovely place for a nice dinner (excellent service and food, white linen table cloths, relatively small, comfortable chairs, and so forth) but also nice for a more causal dinner. We often order a salad, pasta, and have a glass of the house Chianti -- not too expensive and not too filling. Good cocktails too. Nice place for a group dinner also. For a dinner for 10 we preordered appetizers and dessert to speed up the ordering process -- reasonably priced and very helpful about what to order.

    This is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. Always consistent and while somewhat expensive, you receive value for your money. We especially enjoy our server, Richard, for his dry sense of humor and willingness to engage. Service, food and ambience are all great. Brought my foodie Manhattanite brother and sister-in-law and they both thought the Scossa experience was outstanding. This past Sunday evening, we dined with friends from Philadelphia and they too loved Scossa. Our friends enjoyed the scallop and the calamari appetizers. My friend doesn't like kale, so the chef substituted spinach. Entrees were also wonderful, two of us had lamb shank, one pasta with lobster and the fourth Rockfish. All were delicious.

They surprised us with an anniversary dessert, chocolate soufflé, which was fabulous! Our server, April, did a great job. She made good suggestions and was a very personable young lady.

    My wife and I visited Scossa not knowing what to expect. We were amazed to find delicious, authentic Italian fare. After living in Italy for a year and discovering true Italian cuisine, we found that very few restaurants in the U.S. offer true Italian cuisine. Scossa is one of those few and rare finds where service, ambiance and food meet to create a wonderful experience.

    A wonderful dining establishment. Meant to be enjoyed - do go with the expectation of a caring wait staff, a menu offering something for everyone's' taste with daily specials of local ingredients, careful preparation of your meal, relaxing with your table mates (whether it be over cocktails, wine, water, and/or after dinner drinks) without being rushed to vacate the table. Offers outside dining, weather permitting. Bartender is regular with many years experience serving standby drinks and the latest fads.

    Ate there by myself around 5 on a Monday night. Few people at the bar and I had the restaurant part pretty much to myself! I don't eat pasta or wheat and drooled over the pasta selections - sigh! The bread basket they brought to the table looked really good but asked them to take it away- another sigh! I am not a Scallop lover but trying to eat more fish and they had a Scallop appetizer w/ mushrooms which was really good! I also chose to have another appetizer which was the Asparagus and beets. It was good - not my favorite - but it was good. The waitress was very good - I enjoyed talking with her.

    The location of this restaurant is very nice as well as the décor. But the service is awful. Twice in the last 2 months I have dined here and the waiters are just the worst I have ever encountered. The food is marginal at best and for the quality it is extremely overpriced. The chef clearly has a problem with sauces. The sauces on apps and entrees are just brown, lifeless and poorly constructed. Diner beware.

    My husband and I were in Easton for one night and had heard good things about Scossa. Our dinner was very delicious. The only off note was the vegetable medley. It looked delicious, but the brussels sprouts were rather overcooked and mushy. Both of our veal dishes were delicious and perfectly prepared. I loved the assortment of biscotti for dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    I was there during Restaurant Week and the chef did not stint on providing a gourmet meal at lunch for the special budget price. The risotto with porcini mushrooms and scallops was scrumptious. And ending the meal with a decadent tiramisu was a mid-day treat. I will be back even when it's not Restaurant Week.
