What I liked about this place is it's open kitchen,the server and the taste of the pizzas. Hands down the veggie pizza we ordered was delicious and so was the margarita pizza. It has pretty decor though the dining room is small. What confused me a little about the place was the choice of appetizers even though the call themselves a fast food place. I wish they had something more mainstream like cheese sticks or fries. Also, the drinks felt a bit expensive.
Arrived to no one there. Location open and saw oven on but not a single worker. Walked in, moved a cart blocking doorway and said hello several times to no acknowledgement or anything. Very disappointing that we booked a reservation and yet couldn’t even enjoy and had to scramble to find another restaurant open who could accommodate us. Why would you allow reservations if you are not fully open or even going to have staff keep an eye on their walk ins/reservations as they do their assigned work?
It's a nice little spot. They had been closed since December but recently reopened. I asked the server if it was COVID that caused the closure and it was. The place only probably has 25 indoor seating spots (more outside for summer dining) and with former COVID capacity restrictions they closed waiting for those to be lifted, which they now are. I guess it was tough during the winter when you could only have 10 people at a time. Anyways, glad they're reopened on to my visit. Right now they only have pizza and appetizers but will be adding back entrees in the next few weeks. It being lunch I had the arancini and meatballs appetizers which were both really really delicious. I saw other parties with pizza and that looked great too. This place will be terrific once they're back up to full speed and I will return to try the entrees!
Came around 12 to get lunch. The service was great and the establishment was clean! My table each got our own pizza and each was so SO delicious! I personally loved the Artichoke and Mortadella pizza!
One of the best pizza in Boston. If you want something less usual, try their prosciutto and fig pizza, you won’t be disappointed.
Found this little gem while exploring the North End. Food, Wine, and atmosphere was amazing. Can't wait to go back to Boston just to have another meal here.
My review is not on Scopa, but on OpenTable. The restaurant is CLOSED.
Scopa is an intimate, handsome Italian restaurant serving up some decadent meals. Not a lot of seating, but we didn't have trouble getting in on a Sunday evening.Our waitress was very pleasant and prompt. She was very apologetic after spilling a little water on my menu and plate.We had the arancini, carbonara, and short ribs. The arancini was the weak link. It was almost overwhelmed by an almond extract type flavoring. Not sure where that came from - maybe the breading? - but they were just alright.The short ribs were incredibly tender. My boyfriend loved them. He thought the truffle gnocchi was, well, too truffle-y, but he wasn't expecting much else (he loves short ribs, but not truffles, so).The carbonara was the best part - some of the best carbonara I've had since visiting Europe. The egg was placed on top so you got to burst the yolk and mix it up with the noodles. Fun and absolutely delicious. Like all carbonara, it was VERY rich and as such it was hard to finish all of it.I guess the restaurant was a little more expensive than we were expecting (although we could have gotten pizzas - those were practically steals). Still, Scopa was a great way to finish off a great vacation to Boston!
We sat outside which was a nice atmosphere on Hanover Street. Food portions were very small for price. A glass of wine was listed at $8 on the menu and waiter tried to charged us $13 per glass. We made him get us a menu and he asked me to do the math on my phone and ended up charging us correct price. Very strange situation all together.
Terrible portion sizes for the price. Cheese plate was $14 and were sample sizes (photo included). We ordered eggplant parm appetizer that never came and when we asked where it was he said we had never ordered it. We also ordered the Sauvignon Blanc that was listed at $8 and were charged $13. When asked to fix the bill he asked us to "do the math" and calculate the total ourselves. We ended up leaving and not eating dinner there because it was just terrible service.
Excellent chef with super choice of wines, aperitifs, pizza, pasta, chicken, no desserts menu
Not bad food, portions were not as big as some of the other restaurants in the north end. Especially being the same price, I expected more. I ordered the pollo al limone and it was pretty good, but it could've been a bit more flavourful. Not many options for white wines. I probably wouldn't go back here. Good service though!
My friend and I sat by the window and had the best time! The service was incredible and our waiter Roberto was so thoughtful. The food was DELISH. I would HIGHLY recommend.
Great food and service. Super friendly staff.
Little restaurant in the North End. This whole area has a great atmosphere. The food here was delicious. Prices were average or maybe a little higher I think for the area. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal.
