Scampo at The Liberty Hotel
Conveniently located to MGH, TD Garden, The Liberty Hotel, Historic Beacon Hill and The North End and The West End of Boston. Lydia Shire, the James Beard award-winning chef and pioneer of Boston’s culinary scene is the Scampo Chef along with Executive Chef Simon Restrepo. She had opened her own restaurants, from the departed Biba, Pignoli, and Excelsior Chef Shire later took over the historic Locke-Ober, where once women weren’t allowed to eat in the downstairs dining room to Scampo, which debuted more than a decade ago in the Liberty Hotel.
A culinary destination created by legendary chef Lydia Shire and the Lyons Group. In Scampo, Shire’s reputation for defying tradition translates into Italian-inspired cuisine unrestrained by borders, drawing on flavors from the Mediterranean and Middle East.
Scampo translates to “escape” in Italian.

The service was good but the food was terrible the calamari was soggy and the salmon was tasteless
Servers need to be better trained. As a business person running multiple restaurants I would let my staff act and talk like that. They all have attitude issues.
The food and service were amazing.
Good and service were impeccable. We had cold pea soup, garlic bread, sea bass and salmon. Didn’t have room for dessert.
The food was not bad but a bit overpriced. The service was excellent, but the noise level was bad considering that our reservation was at 5:30. I have been there many times as it is in my neighborhood, but it was below the usual standards.
We stayed at the Liberty Hotel and were beyond please with every element of our experience there. Our meal was wonderful. We had a lovely table outdoors.
Asked and ordered specifically gluten free. Delivered non gluten free so ate with out the rest of my table later. Celebrating 21st Birthday where they knew her name and year but delivered the wrong cake- again not gluten free. Told me to complain to cake delivered when it was actually scampo. Scampo called me 30 minutes post our departure to tell me they had the cake.
Server and service was top-notch/amazing. Bolognese was extremely chunky and taste was not great. Sausage and Potato pizza was delicious. We did not get the table we reserved - a hightop.
Had a wonderful meal and Brian, our server, was fantastic!
Scampo always provides amazing food, service and atmosphere. Great for a special occasion or any night out of the house.
Excellent experience as always at Scampo! Fantastic waiter and incredible pasta. We’ll be back..
First time sitting at a bar since Feb 2020! It was so fun, great service and friendly staff and the food was delicious
Excellent food but very loud. Left with a headache from having to talk over the noise.
Waiter Brian was fantastic- food was delicious & atmosphere (we ate outside) was lovely.
Our waiter was excellent. The food was really not what we expected. My sea bass was cold in the middle and the pasta was just ok. The best part was the garlic naan.
Brian, the waiter, was the best ever! Food was delicious!
The food was not hot or warm as expected neither tasty as I remembered!
The outdoor dining is not fancy as indoor and the noise was high moreover from the adjacent outdoor dining area...overall was not satisfied as in the past !
Food was mediocre at best but service was good.
Cool spot, great service, fun vibe...the food poor, unfortunately. It used to be a great spot but something has shifted and the food just isn’t interesting or well crafted...maybe it was an off night. Just disappointing.
There for an anniversary- good experience overall
Came here for a romantic dinner date and was very impressed. The food was tasty and the service was fantastic. Our server was conversational and made great recommendations for drink and food pairings. Cocktails matched the food menu very well. The ambiance and decor really add to the sense of a special evening. Will definitely add this to the list for special occasions in the future.
Great food and great wait staff!
Everything was wonderful! Food is amazing
My favorite Restaraunt
We went for a special birthday. Food was terrific. Service top notch. Sat outside - it was comfortable and quiet.
This place is perfect. The staff is knowledgeable and attentive. The food is delicious. It was a pleasure to dine there.
Amazing service and the food was succulent and full of flavor. They didn't have the wine we requested and the manager assisted our server of finding a great replacement. Really enjoyed it
Great waiter. Food good. Took awhile for food but was very hot and tasty
Fantastic food. Worth the price. Great service. Perfect for a special occasion celebration.
Excellent meal and service. Great restaurant for sure!
Scampo is one of the top restaurants in Boston. This is a go-to for my partner and I to celebrate birthdays and special occasions. The food is always tremendous and their wine list is superb. Always have a great time with the ambiance and food.
An enjoyable evening despite a noisy event at the The Liberty next door. Our waiter couldn’t have been nicer and the food was good although wouldn’t recommend the cheese risotto as a bit too wet.
When we arrived, and before our companions, I sat at the bar and was ready to order some wine, as our friends dos not drink. The bartender was so engrossed in discussion with the other couple at the bar, he ignored me totally, and when finished with the other couple, took receipts and went to the other end. Our friends arrived and we were seated outside.
Service at the table was excellent. The brick chicken, which I had, was quite dry and unappealing, but my husband’s duck was delicious, as were the scallops and the pasta dish which were also served. Too bad that it wasn’t 4 out of 4!
had a lovely dinner on the patio last evening. Our server Brian was terrific and made the night so pleasant. We look forward to being back soon.
Great restaurant and staff. The brick chicken was fantastic as was The Bolognese.
We couldnt be happier, they made us feel special, service was quick & wonderful! Had super friendly and attentive staff & food was delicious!!!
Food was outstanding. Delicious and fresh! Wait staff lovely and attentive. Outside patio was perfection.
Scampo has always been one of our favorite restaurants. We truly missed dining here and as soon as it opened we came back..and as usual everything was perfect!
The hostesses - who had to change the reservation because we were stuck in traffic from an accident- outstanding as always! Everyone works together.. our incredible waiter and sommelier and others who helped during the even.. all flawless execution and incredible dining experience. Food of course wonderful.
Covid social distance was incredible but we felt “ normal “because it was done so well.
Thank you to everyone.
