I have wanted to try Scampo for a few years now and glad we did. The atmosphere is fun and vibrant, the bar is busy...we arrived 15 minutes early for our 9pm reservation to have a drink at the bar first, it was very busy and not easy to get the bartenders attention which was disappointing, seemed to be a lot of people dining at the bar that took up a lot of her time. I find this in a lot of city bars now... would be nice to have a bartender available for quick drink orders.
By 9pm the restaurant had cleared out some and we had a choice of tables , the hostess was lovely and very accommodating, we chose a high top over from the bar.
Our appetizer was a meatball dish that they had forgotten the polenta it was suppose to be served on that the waiter realized and brought it in the side, was interesting but very small portion. We then had a Caesar salad that was good with a great dressing although the croutons were store bought looking and too many. I had the black pasta with lobster which was really good and different and my husband had the NY sirloin that was just ok. It was fanned out on the plate with not a lot of flavor , very little searing of the meat Morelos fashioned London broil in appearance, served with sweet potato purée and a fried potato cake . I Would rather have had a fresh green vegetable maybe with an interesting Chimmichuirri sauce for the meat. The Barbara red wine we had was great they have an extensive wine list. All in all it was a memorable night, the food was not as good as I had anticipated but the dining experience was special and the people watching at the end of the night was so fun. Clink in the main lobby of the Liberty hotel gets very lively, a great end of the evening to walk up stairs and get a drink although be prepared for a younger city nightclub vibe.... which we enjoyed.

This was our wedding anniversary dinner on May 27 and it was a disaster.
A 30 minute wait between each course was nothing compared to the awfulness of my main course, rabbit and pasta, which was completely inedible (as well as looking disgusting)
When I complained the restaurants duty manager refunded the cost of our meal but the evening was already ruined.

Have dined at Scampo a dozen times because of the consistent excellent quality of the food. Unfortunately, the service is predictably confused with multiple servers duplicating or forgetting service requests. Ambiance is great, especially the absence of loud music, allowing for the pleasant sound of diners conversing at a pitch that doesn’t have to exceed the music. The pork chop, scallops and cheese and pear ravioli were hits this evening. A bit disappointed by the limited wines by the glass selection but overall would definitely recommend Scampo.

I eat at Scampos quite a bit. And the food is usually terrific. But this time I ordered the veal Marsala and it was a big disappointment. The veal was thick and chewy. And nit very tasty. It’s really the first bad dish I have had at one of my favorite places to dine. Wine choice was fine and the service was excellent. I will return but I will not be ordering that dish again.

Has been wanting to visit Scampo for a while. While the ambiance of the room and the service was attentive without being obtrusive, the food lacked flavor. We shared the fried calamari which was well prepared - but coated in a bland breading the subtracted from the flavor of the squid. My fiance had the pizza which was good. I had veal scallopini whch was also sorta bland. The pasta served on the side was good. Desert was solid. However for $200 (with the tip +$30 to park) the meal was not worth it. You can spend half the amount we paid and have a better meal.

We had a lovely Mother’s Day dinner at Scampo. The service was excellent , really friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. We had the garlic bread basket , split the tomato mozzarella appetizer, and had the steak, the spaghetti marinara and the spaghetti carbonara . All great. Shared the cookie platter for dessert, which was lovely ( more chocolate would be good!) it is a little loud in the restaurant but that is my only complaint.

Scampo has been our go to place for all big occasions for many years, however they really let us down on mother’s day
Food was like warm obviously pre- made and sitting under lights. Such disappointment
Service with Holly is always great. She is just the best! Lesson learned - avoid holidays at Scampo

It has lost its luster. Sorry to say but it has. Service was horrible, under trained, over worked servers. Food quality down and has become very greasy. Even the look of food is down. Sad, this was always a go to, will need to find another.
