~ 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 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.

We held our small wedding reception here 6 years ago. I guess I was too excited at the time to relish the delicious food here. I surprised my husband this past weekend and took him to Sousa's to celebrate our anniversary. We couldn't have had a better dinner anywhere else in South Tahoe!!

The food appeared to be previously made and reheated. The presentation was pretty but the freshness wasn’t there.

The food was very good, the service timely and attentive, and the setting was quiet enough that we could have a good conversation. Portions are large.

Hands down the most amazing restaurant we’ve been to. Did research on several restaurants in the area and I’m so glad we chose this one. Can’t wait to go back! Must try the escargot and the lobster ravioli. I’m going to dream about this place tonight.
