I had fond memories of a visit several years ago and looked forward to a "date" with my husband. Sadly, our meal fell far short of expectations. We ordered the sirloin and sides to share. The sides were tasty while the beef was mediocre. If we return we will order something else.
The service was very professional and amicable. The room is beautiful. It all started well, with the great service, good wine and the grissini and pesto brought quickly to the table. It tasted great and we were excited! We started analyzing the menu and it felt a bit confusing but we made our choices. We started sharing a pizza which was good. Than, main courses came. Not good at all. Too many ingredients and ideas on the plate and nothing really tasting good. Quite frustrating.
Friends who had lived in Boston told us this was their favorite restaurant. We were in Boston to visit colleges with our granddaughter. Service and food were outstanding! Wonderful atmosphere and lighting. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Waiter was attentive and charming. All around a great experience!
The food was very good but not outstanding, service was attentive but not overbearing. We would return.
My husband and I ate at Scampo on Valentine's Day. It was a very disappointing dining experience. Our table was situated such that the lights of the out going valet cars were in his eyes. We ordered a bread that was described as having cheese, tomatoes and basil on top. The cheese was partially melted pizza cheese, the "tomatoes" consisted of the pizza sauce and the basil was a ball of green. It was basically a cold flatbread. The beet salad consisted of cone shaped beet triangles with frisee on a creamy cheese- lackluster. My husband enjoyed his duck very much. I returned my salmon to the kitchen as it was too undercooked for my liking- the waitress did not ask, not did I specify how to cook the fish. Our desert was a very tasty chocolate cake with strawberry sauce that was so thick and sweet it seemed best used in a frozen daiquiri. Our waitress was lovely and attentive to our table but that isn't enough to overcome the dinner. I am shocked and surprised that Lydia Shire is associated with this quality of food.
I usually like Scampo but this meal was all around trash. The menu was boring, the food even more so. Totally bland and a complete waste of a night. Very disappointed from start to finish.
Nice place - great food, friendly service. I would recommend to friends that visit Boston.
Great food and experience. Lobster pizza fantastic
everything was perfect, will definitely be back real soon. it’s located inside the liberty hotel, a renovated modern scenic hotspot that was once the old suffolk county jail.
