    I have been going to this restaurant for about 25 years. It never disappoints. We had the eggplant stock appetizer.. wonderful. Kale salad. Good. Not great. But we split one salad. They split it for us. The portion was like a regular salad even though we split it. They also gave us great home baked bread and olive oil and vinegar… yum We next split their seafood linguine… muscles, lots of clams, shrimp and salmon… we asked for a spicy red sauce with extra garlic. It was wonderful…. And the portion was more than enough and they split it for us. Great meal. Then we had their bread pudding and vanilla ice cream. Just ok. But solid. We will be back.

    The food is usually delicious. This specific night was a little less than up to par. No one in our party of six finished their dinner. They need to cut back a bit on the butter!

    Scusa is a reliable good meal at a reasonable price. The wine list is basic, with only a few varietals
