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.

Great food and wine. We are outside in the courtyard which was very comfortable
No chicken was really looking forward to it, we asked for a well done steak but it was more rare , our waiter was nice
Food, service, atmosphere and drinks were excellent
Great food and great atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Thank you for making my 60th birthday so special! Our server was great! Loved the cake that had been ordered by someone else and cancelled- Delish!
It was great to be back at Scampo...food was delicious! And Holly is the best!!
Service was impeccable. Detailed but unobtrusive. Food was wonderful.
Lasagna was cold. Soft shell crab meh. Drinks were fine. Naan was decent. Disappointed
Absolutely the best scallops ever!! The burratta and spaghetti bolegnese was wonderful too! Service fabulous!
A must go to!!
Portions seemed quite small considering the prices charged. Otherwise, very nice.
Went for a special occasion family dinner, didn’t disappoint.
Food presentation and taste awful, disappointed after reading such rave reviews
The staff at this restaurant are professional, welcoming and go above and beyond for their customers. The food is cooked with so much heart and is served fresh! The overall experience at this restaurant was romantic, elegant, and safe (regarding our current pandemic). I would recommend this restaurant to many of my friends and family due to the hospitality and the rich food and DELICIOUS desserts.
Thank you Scampo Staff for making this a wonderful experience.
Delicious dinner and wonderful service. Will return!
Very relaxing atmosphere with heat lamps outside. The best brick chicken I've ever had with a wonderful truffle souffle.
Brian was an outstanding server. Couldn't have been more attentive and helpful...
We love it at Scampo's.
Service was slow. It took 30 minutes to get drinks and we weren't served until one hour. This was not necessarily the fault of the waiter. He had to make one of the drinks, himself, because "the bartender was busy." Food was OK, but nothing special. I wouldn't return.
Spent day in Boston and went on open table and was able to get a reservation for that night
We got bar seats at a high top
It was fabulous
Both of our dinners were amazing
The Chilean sea bass was outstanding
And the appetizer of pea soup was unbelievable
Had reservations at 4:30pm and was seated promptly, our server was Leni, service and recommendations was over the top , spot on with beer choice and highly recommended the Duck, both , was outstanding as was the salmon my wife enjoyed, would definitely be going back soon.
Very slow service- took almost two hours for food to arrive
Amazing customer service! Food is so fresh and so creative. We where a party of 4 and each of of literally licked our plates clean, that’s how good the food was!
From our first step into Scampo. We knew it would be a wonderful evening with a complete dining extravaganza. The aroma from the open kitchen greeted us as we were escorted to our seats. The incredible menu coerced us into ordering and sharing multiple starters and entrees. The food was cooked to perfection. The wine selection is immense and we found our perfect bottle of red! Despite the large amount of food we consumed, Holly, our kind server, paced us so that there was room for dessert. Again, a couple of shared sweet plates to end a perfect evening. We cannot wait to come back!
salad was good. garlic bread was not good at all. my pasta was good but my wifes pasta was uneatable.
The food was okay but not worth the prices we were paying. Our appetizer was run-of-the-mill calamari. They did not have the skirt steak that I was really looking forward to. The scallops were okay, but I've had better. The risotto was way too creamy. My wife had the carbonara and it was really lacking in flavor. This was our first time out in over a year and we left disappointed.
Anniversary dinner. Brian was our server. Excellent all around!
We were so happy to have a restaurant in our hotel that was open and taking precautions. The food was delicious and everything on the menu sounded so good that we had a hard time making a choice. We had great service and overall had a good experience.
My daughter and I had a lovely early dinner at Scampo . The staff was friendly and professional , the room was lovely, and the food was carefully prepared and delicious .
I was especially happy to find a Sicilian wine on the wine list that I had been dying to try, and it did not disappoint , a lovely choice. Our only regret is that we did not leave room for dessert. Next time!
Great food and menu. Enjoyed the Scallops and Risotto dish and the lobster pizza too.
The food was amazing and the waiter was super nice.
We always seem to go to Scampo for our important celebrations and have never been disappointed. The service is wonderful the food is excellent and the restaurant very elegant.
Had an awesome experience at Scampo. Service was amazing and we sat at a high top at the end of the bar - best seat in the house! Highly recommended the cacio e Pepe. One of my new favorites can’t wait to go back!
Having been there several times, Scampo always delivers. The food is creative, delicious, and well prepared. Portions are good. menu is exciting. Service is excellent, with friendly, knowledgeable and attentive staff. An elegant restaurant with a pleasant casual vibe.
Wonderful meals based on waiter's recommendations. Always a pleasant experience!
My husband and I celebrated my birthday. The food was very good including dessert. We sat inside. It was nice out so the doors were open which led to a comfortable breeze entering the restaurant. The staff were kind and prompt.
The food was excellent. The 4 of us had different main dishes and all were good. The Salmon was better last time i ordered it on March 26th.
The service was impeccable Gina was a treasure!!
We dined outside. The night was chilly, the heaters helped a bit.
we shall return.
Excellent service and food
Absolutely amazing food! Each course was wonderful and tasted amazing! Can’t wait to go back
All exquisite as usual!
Was a Great Easter Lunch!!!
