The brunch menu is scrumptious and unexpected. The brisket hash was so flavorful.

Limited menu I thought…but the service was not up to
Par. Out waiter was a nice guy but not very professional. I was disappointed with our dinner experience. Not sure we will be back to Scalo for a while and we used to love it.

Great atmosphere. Considering Covid, The menu was fine. Fantastic wine and liquor list. Food was very good and well plated. Serving size and food quality was worth the price. Service was great. Ask for Chuck. He will take care of you.

The food is always very good here - I am a regular. The service can vary, they have some new younger servers that do not match that provided by servers who have been there awhile (Alyssa, Chuck). Last night I was there and sat in the upper portion near Central. It was freezing cold, I know because the thermostat was right there showing the temp at 61. Two different folks tried to get the heat to work but did not succeed. Now a manager took care of me by offering a discount, but still, how do you not know a section of your restaurant is currently at 61 degrees - this was at 5:30. Might want to check that out before you open for business!

Service was mediocre, as was the meal. My pasta contained hard clumps of noodles (must have been reheated???) and my wife's salmon was cold/cool when the plate arrived at our table.

On a bright note, my antipasto salad was excellent.

To say the least, we were very disappointed.

Eh, just okay. Kind of boring. The bar is cool. It’s a very different vibe from the old scalp. Not Italian although trying to keep the Italian menu, etc. Food was just basic. My salmon was served with skin up which was a bad presentation.

We ate in the outside patio, which was warm enough even in the cold. Food was delicious. Drinks were great. Ambiance was nice enough. Our server was very nice and enthusiastic but the organization is clearly short staffed. We are empathetic and tipped 25% accordingly. Overall, id be happy to come back.

Everything went well EXCEPT the noise level. The noise level was not "energetic" (the word used on your one-to-five category), it was just loud and persistent.

Too bad. Food and service were superb. Tim Kraft

Loooovvveeee this place! The food is exceptional every time I’ve gone and you can’t beat half price bottles of wine on Wednesday. Definitely worth the money if you enjoy fine dining! Also, the Sunday brunch is always nice and delicious.

The service was very subpar. From the host to our waitress, very minimal effort was conveyed. The food was okay, and the prices were fairly reasonable. Would not recommend if you’re looking for a decent italian experience.

We lucked into having a reservation on the night if The Twinkle Lights parade. The parade was wonderful & was easily viewable from our table. BUT - the meal was equally delightful as was the service. We'll be back.

I'm a regular diner there almost every week. While the food & atmosphere is always great, the service can vary. Wed night I had a server B____ she was not good. I ordered bread, she never brought it, had to flag down a young man to bring it. After taking my order I never saw her again until I was done. No asking how the food was if i needed anything etc. What a difference from the great service provided by Allyssa who is always great and the two male servers i sometimes have (don't know their names - one is a black gentleman) they are great, make suggestions, bring the bread, ask how the food is right after bringing it etc. Another minor nit, I always make reservations, but about half the time on arriving there seems to be some confusion at the front desk. Wed night I told the hostess I had a reservation - she then took me to a large table meant for 4 and put out 4 menus. Not sure why.

The wine-pairing dinner provided excellent food and even better wines. The service was excellent as well. I especially enjoyed the unique selections of meat and the (to me) unusual preparations. My wife enjoyed it as well, though she thought the prawns were only OK.

Only issue: noise level, but I did get used to it.

All the food was excellent at the wine tasting. Old favorites were presented in new ways. I'm not a big rose' person so didn't really wants a second pour of the first wine. The second wine was OK. It was the third wine that was superior and I really enjoyed.

Every time at Scalo is amazing. The staff is always friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. I was very much hoping to try the boar, but it was sold out. The gnocchi is my go to and this seasons rendition was truly out of this world! I can’t wait to return.
