Our family of 5 were celebrating birthday and each ordered a different meal. Each one was absolutely fantastic!
All of our desserts and 2 different appetizers were amazing as well.
The sommelier also gave us a great little history behind the wine we chose.
I can't say enough about the delicious meal and ambiance of the restaurant.

We will definitely be going back!

We thought the ambience was nice. The price to valet the car for an hour to eat was a bit expensive. The food was ok.

Well this evening was triple-10 in every phase. Brian was a server and might be one of the most attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and joyful waiter we have ever encountered! He provide some recommendations which we both accepted and we were not disappointed. The food is outstanding here. I can see why this is such a destination for non-hotel guests in the region. An absolute must when you come to Boston.

The food was absolutely terrible. Poor mix of flavors, cold when it arrived and squishy consistency. The presentation left much to be desired. The waitstaff was rude. The silverware and dishes were both dirty and had to be replaced. In addition, the cocktails were weak. Very disappointing, expensive night out.

Scampo is an absolute must! The food is absolutely incredible, the service is fantastic, and the atmosphere is great! My Fiancé and I sat at the mozzarella bar, it was such a fun experience because we got to watch some of the food being cooked and the deserts being made. We will definitely be coming back here!!

The waiter was great, the food was great, though expensive, but the drunk girls at the bar were REALLY loud. It made it hard to have a conversation. The level of noise besides the girls was pretty high also.

My granddaughter and her friend had dinner and we all enjoyed it. Food was good and well prepared. Excellent service. Only small complaint was the menu was somewhat limited. I expected to see a few traditional Italian dishes, but there were few of those, otherwise, great night.

the food was a mess on the plate. Runny Risotto with muscles on top of it and swordfish sitting on top of that. Poor preparation. The beet pasta sounded interesting but was way too rich and again runny poorly plated. The sliced duck was pretty good. The service was fine. I have dined there many times and will give it a break for a while.

Haven’t been there for quite a few years so was looking forward to it. It didn’t disappoint. It is a nicely decorated white tablecloth place but with very comfortable seating. There is ample room between tables and music but it was still relatively quiet though busy.

We had a wonderful server who made th experience even better. My companion is an adventuresome water and had the pork special. I had the plain spaghetti with pomadoro . I’m a vegetarian. We had a bread appetizer that was like an inside out garlic bread . It was delicious. The pork was excellent per report and had ample accompaniments. It provided another meal. The spaghetti was good but not outstanding this visit. I remembered it from a previous visit as so simple but delicious. I couldn’t describe it that way but it was good and quite ample.

Cocktails were great and the wine recommended was superb. All in all a five star experience. There server added enormously to our total enjoyment.

This experience doesn’t come cheap. The prices are high and our dinner with top was just under 200 dollars ( 1 special entree, 1 cocktail 2 beers 2 glasses of wine. Bread app, 1 pasta main) that said, it’s quite suitable for a special occasion.

Scampo is always a pleasure to visit. This was the sixth year for a group of colleagues to hold an annual celebration lunch. Service is great. Food, including specials, always a treat. Terrific wine list. We always start with the lobster pizza as an appetizer - fantastic.

Go. Enjoy.

I booked this restaurant to celebrate my wife's 30th birthday whilst we were visiting Boston. I actually cancelled another booking once I read the online menu for Scampo and we were certainly not disappointed. The service was impeccable and the food was to die for. We had starters from the mozzarella bar and the double chop and duck risotto for mains. All was well presented, delicious and plentiful. The only thing i can find to complain about is that the restaurant is on the other side of the Atlantic ocean to me.

Dinner was excellent. Food imaginative and delicious. Service was okay, we mentioned we had somewhere to be at 7 and were there when the restaurant opened at 5:30. Our server was pleasant and assured us it wouldn’t be an issue, then promptly disappeared. The next person brought our drinks then disappeared. There was a 3rd person who took our order, we all ordered the dinner special & shared 2 salads. After our dinner arrived, wait staff #1 appeared to see how it was. We were confused as to who was actually waiting on us. Finally got the check around 7:30.... Luckily we enjoyed our time with our friends so much that it wasn’t too inconvenient that we were late to the basketball game.

The special bread was too garlicky and way too expensive. Our meals were ok. The Chianti Classico by the glass was excellent. The wait staff was excellent in catching that my friend said he was allergic to clams and then ordered a clam dish. He thought she had said lamb. She helped him with a new order. It was very, very noisy. We will enjoy Clink the next time we stay at the Liberty.

My reviews will now be based on our age group. Over 65 yrs old. Scampo has been good experience for many visits. This time it was grossly overpriced valet parking, mediocre service and just so so food. Parking $28.00! Hostess refused to take our drinks from the bar to table. Portions are good for our age group.

We had a reservation for 8.30 at Scampo on a Saturday evening. When the hostess came to get us for the table we reserved she told us they were overbooked and we would have to wait another 45 minutes to an hour for a table or sit at the mozzarella bar. Huh?? When I asked if anything could be done she was very unapologetic and matter of fact. Those were our options - very much a take it or leave it attitude. I would not be writing this if she had been more accommodating or helpful. The food and the service was good once we were seated but the hostess certainty put a damper on the evening. I would think the management of the restaurant would want to train their staff to handle these situations with a little better tact and diplomacy. That would have made all the difference in the evening.

It’s always a pressure to dine at Scampo. We’ve used it for family get togethers, special occasions and just because we love the imaginative, diverse menu. One of my Boston favorites.
