Absolutely lovely! Scuzzi's proved to be the perfect place for dinner with a business colleague. The staff was attentive yet respectful for our need for conversation. The food was amazing; and our meeting a success.

Service was a little slow, took some time to get salads, then entrees. They totally forgot our appetizer, good thing didn’t charge us for it.

When it all finally arrived, the food was good.

Dined here on Mother’s Day. Kitchen was backed up. Could here lots of complaining from other guests. Wasn’t to comfortable hearing all this. Food was a bit longer than usual. But delicious. Small portion for the price. Too far to give it another try. I’m sure it was the Mother’s Day business that was unexpected.

Our waiter started out ok but quickly spiraled to making us angry by stating he doesn't make the food when our 6 meals hadn't come after an hour but the party of 12 behind us received half of their meals. We were offered no drink refills the whole time. I had a sangria that was mostly ice and only had a cherry in it versus the fruit the menu stated. Also the menu is a lot smaller than the menu on the restaurant's website. While the manager was very nice and accommodating. I can't say I'd go back. It was not a good Mother's Day dinner experience.

The food was great, as always. Our service was unsatisfactory. Our server forgot to enter our order for salads, so when we received our food I advised him that we no longer wanted the salads. When the bill came, we were still charged even after he told us he would remove the salads from the bill. This in addition to slow, sloppy service was very disappointing.

The decor in this restaurant was great, they even had a patio to dine in. I would like to try that next visit. The spinach salad was delicious and the salmon piccata was amazing. I would definitely return to try other dishes.

We had a 7:00 reservation and were not seated until 8:00. I was NOT happy about this. It was prom night which played a part in things but the front desk person did not do a very good job communicating with guests about this. She should have been honest about what was going on up front instead of saying “it will just be a few minutes while they get your table ready” for over an hour. I know it was a tough situation, but they should’ve be more forthcoming and handled it better on the front end. That being said, once we were seated the service was impeccable. They went out of their way to make up for the trouble with free appetizers and comping my husband’s wine.

My husband and I went to the restaurant for the first time on Valentine’s Day. The only reason I have a 3 star in the value is because the flavor of the food and presentation was great, but the portions were way too small for the price. I had the surf and turf. My plate came with 2 small scallops, 2 small shrimp and with a less than a 4oz filet minion. The value was not there. I’m not sure if I will go back. I don’t mind paying a high price but the portions should be bigger than was served. After the experience, I question if even more expensive dishes such as the four course dinner offered on that day were the same on the portions. I’m not sure if it was because the restaurant was very busy, it affected the portions too.

It is a wonderful place for a night out with that special someone. The food was incredibly delicious, the servers were courteous, and there were many happy people dining at Scuzzi’s.

To note, it is very casual which is excellent for families but may not be the exact amount of formality some may expect at a seemingly traditional Italian restaurant.

I will definitely go back.

Fixed menu for Valentine’s Day—not a big selection of choices—low quality chicken & fish selections—lack of flavor masked by too much salt—nice waiter but he was unsophisticated & lacked culinary knowledge—thinking they hired fill in waitstaff on the fly to handle the V-day crowd—bad lighting & noisy atmosphere for an intimate dinner.

This was our fifth or sixth time in Scuzzi's and it has been extremely enjoyable each time. I can honestly say you get what you pay for. The food was excellent as well as the service. If you like or should I say love Italian, Scuzzi's is the place to go.

There was a very strong air freshener smell that was emitted periodically while dining. The air freshener belonged in the bathroom not the main dining area. It was very unappetizing. Upon visiting the bathroom it was apparent the restaurant has some sewer issues which was perhaps the reason for the air fresher in the dining area. Would not dine there again by choice.

This was for New Year's Eve dinner with friends. We were placed in a rectangular shaped table(s) in the back corner of the second room. Not great! I prefer 4 so you can visit easily. And the noise level Monday night was such that I would have had to YELL to diagonally across table friend to talk! So I talked very little, really. The food and service were great as usual. My husband and I come to Scuzzi's for special occasions for dinner. I've been coming here for 7 years now for lunch with organizations and friend groups. So it has been one of our faves for many years now. Thank you for the continued consistently great food. YUM! I am a walking advertisement for your shop. Keep up the good work, please. Not that many "nice" restaurants that have great food and service.

Bad odor in women's bath room that caused two of the people to become nauseated and had to take meal home with them. The manager said it was from the spices they use and the cleaning products. The odor could be smelled at out table and the manager then spayed some air freshener to mask the smell. As we were leaving, another employee told us it was from the business that shares the building with them pouring beer in the drain. There was water on the floor in the men's room, brought to staff attention. An hour later, the water was still there. Two of the meals had to be sent back as the food was cold

We have been driving by for years and finally decided to stop in. The service is very attentive and our meal flowed smoothly from drinks and apps all the way through to dessert. The food was excellent. Our table ordered a variety from the linguine with clam sauce to the ribeye. All well prepared and very flavorful. The restaurant itself is a comfortable little spot. Not overly fancy but still inviting.
We will definitely return.

To be honest, I was very disappointed at the noise level being so loud. We were celebrating two of my daughters’ college graduation and I wanted a venue to be able to make a toast and still be heard by my guests. For whatever reason, the restaurant didn’t place us in their private dining room. Luckily, we made a later reservation and some of the other restaurant guests started leaving causing the ambient noise to drop considerably.
Now that the negative comments are out of the way, I would like to say the service provided by our server (Farver?) was outstanding. He was so very attentive to our large table and we were never lacking in anything. He was spot on with serving our drinks and our sparkling wine for the toast. The food was very good and was served hot and fresh. I will confidently say the server and the chefs, of course, saved the evening!

It was a business dinner, that I had to arrange for a few hours. When I arrived the waitress accommodate me with a Table for 4. I question the waiter about our arrangements and they were not aware of what was going on, I mentioned quietly I had RSVP and was supposed to have a prepared 4 course menu based on my price point per guest. Of course they look at me like I was crazy. But when the owner came to check on me he explained I was at the wrong location. Lol. However I went to the wrong one, and yet they quickly accommodated me and my 2 other guest. I will definitely recommend both locations because they go beyond and above for each guest. I love the Shrimp Scuzzis. It’s absolutely my favorite dish on the menu and they have a excellent selection of fine dining. Love it

Went for birthday dinner, reviews were great and several friends loved it. Party of 8, friday night, not very busy. Our waiter really set the tone, not very friendly, seemed irritated with us, impatient(this was the 1st time to visit for all of us). Plus he seemed to rush us through our meal. The food was good. We all had different meals. I'd say 80% really liked the food, the other 20% said it was ok-remarks varied from too saucy, way too much salad dressing on the salad(it was overwhelming), nothing special. I personally had the special-a seabass piccata. For $45 I wanted to be wowed and I was not. The sauce was ok, I didn't really care for the pasta, but the vegetables didn't compliment it at all. Not sure if I'd try it again and at this point none of us would recommend it to friends

Dinner with my mom and it could not have been more perfect. Our server Ricardo was attentive, cheerful, and had perfect timing. It had been a while since we have been to Scuzzi’s due to noise level, so I was surprised to see the remodel and thankful that it reallly seemed to helped with the noise. Thank you, Ricardo and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.
