The Prix Fixe Menu $40 listed online, we were told by our waiter only at lunch, though it is listed on the website dinner menu.
I posted on Open Table a request for a certain table. No mention of it when we checked. They could have said that it was previously reserved.

Otherwise dinner was fine. The avocado endive salad was delicious. We ordered the liver which was tasty, but a little over cooked. This was after we broached the cooking temp subject with our waiter.

We generally like Scossa, we are locals, just a few glitches this time.

New Year, new flavors. The octopus carpaccio with salmon tartare was outstanding as was the veal and mushroom ragu. Cannot wait to return, special occasion not required.

We loved this restaurant. From the service, to the cocktails, to the food. We will be back. All was fantastic. We started with the cheese plate, Caesar salad and the spinach and pear salad. All were wonderful. We then had salmon, veal, risotto (lobster and duck ones) and lobster with whole wheat pasta. All were delicious and everyone was satisfied. For dessert we had tiramisu, peach sorbet and apple strudel. Awesome.

The wait staff treated us very well and we felt welcomed. My husband and I are in our 20's and often the youngest couple at fancy restaurants. We are often get judged by the staff. Our waiter was great and made us feel welcome and as if we belonged.

Scossa was an excellent restaurant for our group of 6! Three generations age 20, 50 and 80, some meat eaters, some not — we all were pleased with our meal choices. The timing of the service was perfect - no long waits, but also no feeling of being rushed. We stayed for dessert and coffee (unusual for us), and again, all dessert choices were excellent. We would definitely return in the future.

We enjoyed our meal here very much. Three of us ordered pasta dishes and the 4th ordered a fish dish.
All were delicious. Wine is reasonably priced. Nice cocktails too although we skipped those this time. Excellent service. We often see the same staff people -- I think low staff turnover is one of the reasons the service is so good. Its a very pretty place -- nice for a relaxing meal.

We've been here twice before and have had great experiences, so we were looking forward to a nice lunch. The food was excellent as usual but the service was among the worst we've ever had anywhere. It was like the waiter was intentionally snubbing us. Once he took our order he never stopped by the table again except to pick up the check (which someone else delivered). He was extremely talkative to table next to us (maybe he knew them ?) but ignored many other tables. What made it really strange is that our table was near the wait station so he had to repeatedly walk right by us. It was like he was purposely trying to avoid eye contact with us. I suspect he was just a bad waiter so we're inclined to try them again but it will be awhile. There are a lot of other excellent options in the Easton/St. Michaels/Cambridge area.

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.
