We were a group of 10 old friends and really liked this restaurant's relaxed ambiance and not being rushed. The salads were very tasty and there were a wide variety of lunch choices. Unfortunately, the food came out over a 20 minute period so that some people were on their main course while others had just gotten their salads. And three people ordered the same fish dish, which was overcooked and chewy. They would have said something to our server if we could have gotten his attention. The staff was very friendly, I just think they could use a bit more training. I would give Scopa another chance because it's hard to find a place big enough to fit a large group without being rushed.

Arrived an hour early after theater ended st 4:30pm last Saturday for our cousin’s birthday. The place was empty and we sat at the bar since it was too early for dinner. Enjoyed a few drinks and at 5:30 asked the hostess to seat us. For an annoying reason she took us to a table right by the serving station (sub-par table) even though the restaurant was pretty empty. We asked for another table and she was quick to oblige us. I don’t understand why she did that- offer the worst table first even though we had a reservation and the place was empty... well the food was AWESOME and service was pretty good (they didn’t bring us bread and the entree came out too quickly.. The waiter could’ve been more attentive- He ignored my request for water and was a bit derogatory 😕 but he did decorate the dessert dish with Happy Birthday and a candle). His assistant was great! Attentive, quick and very hard working. Regardless of the minor negatives, we had a great time!! The restaurant was packed by 7pm and they did not pressure us to leave. Hugs plus. Overall a lovely experience.

So I tried Scopa and it was a complete disappointment. To start the drinks in special were not all available (no Sangria or Bellini). Admittedly, the wait staff did run out to buy ingredients to no avail. The wait staff were very pleasant and put in a bad position to deliver bad news. The venue was fine. For my food, the asparagus was over cooked ( bitter and crunchy). The prosciutto was far to salty. My guests enjoyed their meals. The dessert was forget On the plus side, the poached eggs were well cooked (runny). Will I go again? No.

My family enjoyed dinner at Scopa and it was some of the best Italian food we’ve ever had. The gnocchi was spectacular and our daughter ordered a simple rigatoni with a creamy white wine sauce that wasn’t even on the menu and they brought her out what may have been the best tasting pasta dish any of us had ever had. We were able to personally commend the chef, and would highly recommend Scopa. Truly fantastic.

My husband and I had Thanksgiving dinner (just the two of us) at Scopa. It was our first time at the restaurant. The menu appealed to us, and we liked that the tables were spaced out nicely. There was music playing a bit too loudly for our taste. The noise level was already high, and had the music played in the background, that would have worked. So we requested that they turn down the music, which they did, and that was better.

The Thanksgiving meal was a pre fix. We both had the Caesar salad, which was very good. Then the main course of turkey came out, and after a moment, I realized that the stuffing was missing. The recipe for the stuffing had looked wonderful, so I was chagrined that there was none— only turkey and mashed potatoes. I inquired about this to two different waiters who did not seem to know anything about it, but eventually, they sent the manager over, who went into the kitchen, inquired, and returned, saying that I was correct, and brought out the stuffing.

The service was very friendly, but did not seem knowledgeable about the meal they were serving.

I think this restaurant caters to families since I did not see many tables for two. . It seems like a nice restaurant to go to for a casual meal, but does not strike me as very special in any way.

I was told that the cauliflower soup was only pureed cauliflower and nothing else! It sounded wrong to me but was assured. After eating it and thinking it tasted like potato, I called the mgr over to ask again. He went to the kitch and told me it was Cauliflower and potatoes!! I do not eat potato! Also I ordered a pork chop and got this big hunk of meat on a strange bone instead of the traditional pork chop i wanted. The mgr did take off the chop but said he was going to give us all desserts. We got one and paid for coffee. I wont be back

My husband and I just had dinner at Scopa for the first time. The food was quite good. We had the Papardelle with Meat Sauce and the Lamb Shank. The service was a bit of a mixed bag even though it was a slow night. We really liked the ambiance. A good addition to the neighborhood. We will be back.

I reserved a table for 6 & 2 friends came earlier than me & they were seated behind the curtains. It was good at 1st because the crowd that night was loud & we were isolated so we were able to chat, but it was so hot back there. Then, our waiter never came back after getting our orders. He apologized towards the end, before we paid. We were near the kitchen so we saw a lot of waiters but it was so hard to get their attention. The food is good but I won’t be back because of the service.

The restaurant was clearly understaffed. It took forever to order wine and appetizers, and we were only successful when we hailed one of the busboys to go find our waiter. Then, our main courses were delivered while we were still eating our appetizers. No apologies were given, the food was just dumped on our table. No Parmesan was offered for the pasta dishes. We did speak to a manager at this point, but the lack of attention continued. We finally received desert menus after another long wait, but gave up at that point and just asked for our bill. No concession was offered for the poor service. We will not be back.

Service was terrible. The busses provided better care to our table then our server. He never asked how any of our courses were and the busier halfway through our main course asked if we wanted Parmesan. Food was average and poor service made it even worse.

We were a party of 9 for Sunday brunch. There was only three other tables at that time. Our waiter did not put in one of our pasta orders. So that person had to wait another 15 minutes for their dish while everyone was finishing theirs. When it came time for dessert, one of us ordered cheesecake. After everyone else got their desserts and coffee, the waiter told us there was no more cheesecake. All in all the food itself was good. But the service was not.

The food here is really good. The staff is friendly and welcoming. It feels like being invited to someone's home for a meal and that's a great thing. The shrimp scampi meal was awesome, and their appetizer selections are great as well. For dessert, try the cheesecake, it's worth every penny.

Needed a restaurant within a certain location for 8+ people. This place was available, menu looked good & fair prices. We added more people at the last minute & they had no issues. Nice decor except low lighting. Food very good. They brought everything out in a timely fashion without rushing us out, as we were there late. You did not feel overcrowded with too many tables. Pleasant staff. Will go back again!
