We enjoyed our dinner very much. However, my request for a certain table was not honored. Disappointing, since we were bringing friends who hadn’t dined there.

Went to Scossa to celebrate our anniversary on the Saturday night of Waterfowl Festival. Despite the crush of people there during the day and evening, dinner was memorable, service was warm, friendly and helpful. We simply cannot wait to return, albeit on a quieter night!

Scossa was a great find in small town Easton. The food was delicious and the ambiance was very friendly and warm. I talked to several shop owners around town who all raved about Scossa, saying it was one of the best meals around. They weren’t wrong!

The eggplant parmesan and ravioli with spinach and sage butter were delightful. I’d highly recommend Scossa to anyone visiting the area. Make a reservation!

One of our favorite restaurants in the Easton area. Friendly staff; polite and professional. Very clean and inviting atmosphere. Comfortable seating and very nice ambiance. Have dined here on numerous occasions and always look forward to returning. Our meals have always been prepared to our liking. Would highly recommend this establishment if you are new to the Downtown Easton area. You won't regret the choice.

The service was amazing and the ambiance was there but it was quite expensive for the small meal sizes. Your paying for the experience and it was quite nice, not too loud, but felt like we had to talk quietly. I will say that when I got a side of asparagus, it was barely any asparagus, cost extra, and just tasted like it was plainly cooked. I marked that I wouldn't recommend to a friend, but that is because all my friends are in school and we all don't have too much money to spend. However, for a very special occasion, it could be worth the splurge.

We were in town on family business, and it was my husband's birthday. We had been told by a local resident how wonderful it is, and now we understand why it's her favorite restaurant in Easton. We certainly agree. We split the calamari and loved the spicy sauce. My husband had a Caesar salad without the white anchovies. I got the beef short ribs with Parmesan risotto; this was a special and to die for. Loved our dining experience.

great food, lovely furnishings. The pace of our meal was a little off: salad arrived just a few minutes after our cocktails, and lots of attention from the waiter during the first half of the meal, but then it took about 20 or more minutes after finishing the main meal to get our dessert menus, and have our ordered coffee served.

We went to Scossa for their risotto. The night we were there they had shrimp risotto and it was excellent. The server had waited on us before and provided excellent service. We had asked for a quiet booth and there was a fairly loud group in the main dining area, so the hostess suggested a table in the bar. This was the first time we dined in the bar area and it was quiet and great. We will definitely return.

Scossa is still our favorite restaurant in Easton. Has been for years. And if you do know Richard, the waiter, you’re missing out. He’s our fave and we ask for him every time. The grilled octopus and salmon tartar were to die for and my husband raved about the veal Parmesan!

We dined outside for a lovely brunch/lunch and the service, drinks, food and ambiance could not have been better. The only drawback was the pesky flies that seemed determined to invade once food was placed on the table. Our waiter was attentive without being obtrusive, the salads, including a special crab salad were positively outstanding.
Would highly recommend and will be back this fall!

Understated elegance is how I would describe Scossa. We were seated promptly and the food was excellent. I made a notation on our Open Table reservation about bringing a piece of cake out for my fiancee's birthday and they not only complied with my request, they took the cake off the total of our bill! We would definitely come back.
