~ 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!

Food was incredible! We just got awkwardly sat into a booth next to a wedding party. So we got to hear every toast... which was weird. However food and service was exceptional! Will definitely be coming back!

Delicious food! Only complaint is it is served WAY too fast. My party of 4 ordered a bottle of wine, appetizers, entrees and dessert and they had the food out so fast, we were finished in under 45 minutes.

Service and ambiance was great, I found the food to be overly salty for my taste (both dishes) but overall great experience and will return again when we visit Tahoe again.

We love that they have Frank Family Chardonnay. The food is great and the service is very prompt. It's a wonderful restaurant on South Shore.
