~ Creative Traditional Italian & Fresh Seafood Daily ~ Upscale, Lively Atmosphere ~ Extensive Menu & Wine List ~

For over 20 years, Scusa has remained the perennial favorite of locals and tourists alike. Featuring traditional and creative pasta dishes, from simple Cappellini with fresh Basil and Tomato to Seafood Fettuccine Scusa in a light tomato-red wine sauce. Scusa is rumored to serve the best Linguine & Clams you'll ever have. Let's not forget the variety of Veal and Chicken dishes, and the Scusa Bread is a must! With appetizers from crispy Calamari to the House Specialty Lobster Raviolis in light Basil-Tomato Cream any choice is a good one. If you only have room to split a desert try the Amaretto Bread Pudding or the delicious Cannolis.

Scusa has one of the most romantic outdoor patios in Lake Tahoe, complete with fountain & garden. If you're looking for great food, with warm atmosphere and service, you are sure to enjoy!

Excellent ambiance with soft lighting and a real Italian feel. The meal was delicious, especially the lobster ravioli appetizer. Most notable was the quality service we received from Zack T, who was attentive without hovering, friendly without being too involved, and intuitively helpful with suggestions for wine and dessert. Understated and respectful, yet friendly and smiling enough to help us connect with him. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Lake Tahoe.

Excellent Italian fine-dining at a reasonable price. The wine list has very fine wines and Italian specialties like Amarone. Very knowledgeable waiters who are familiar with the different recipes and preparation as well as well versed on the wine list.

Our waiter was very animated, loud, and appeared to be reciting the menu to us. Nothing soft about him for a fine Italian restaurant.
