We went to Scopa with four adults, a three year old and five year old. Scopa staff were welcoming, friendly and very nice and helpful will the children, providing pastels and drawing paper. Our meals were delicious and drinks were great. One of the adults in our group had very specific dietary needs (no soy, diary or gluten). Scopa went... More

Wonderful service, reasonable prices, and friendly patrons. I was very happy with our meal but their real claim to fame is their "drinking chocolate". I got mine to-go, and walked around the chilly city with a wonderful cup of chocolate AWESOME. Try it, you'll love. Its rich though, so a small may be plenty if you're anything like me.

The great thing about Visa Wellington-on-a-plate, is that you try places you've never been to before. Three generations, all with high expectations including one vegetarian teenager. And we were in a hurry. Efficient friendly wait staff found us a table in double quick time and the place was humming. Anchovies were divine as was the pumpkin risotto. Teenager smiled big... More

It is Wellington on a Plate month in Wellington and Scopa is participating. This restaurant is always a good choice and the set menu they have created for the event is a good one. They are offering 3 courses including a glass of Wairarapa (Paddy Borthwick's) pinot gris for $35 - you simply cannot beat that price. We dined on... More

I'm back and yet again it was freaking fantastic...Just wish I had two stomachs so I could fully enjoy the full range of the menu...pizza tick, gnocchi tick tick, hot chocolate ...just died and swam in a pool of melted chocolate. Staff are very attentive and quite attractive (just saying - you are beautiful, but that could be the hot... More

I love this place! They have great pizzas and amazing hot chocolates. I would say sometimes the service can be a little bit slow, the last time we ate here I ended up giving up on being offered a second drink. But other than that, this place is spot on. Highly recommend.

Went here for dinner one night and we were seated quickly,with our option to sit in any of the free tables available. It has a nice atmosphere, relaxed with great staff. The food was good,especially the pizza which is big enough to share. A nice place to have a quiet dinner.

We had to wait for 20 minutes at the bar for a table, as it was rammed on a Monday night, but it was well worth the wait. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, and really knew their stuff when it came to both the food and drink. I had octopus spaghetti, which was really tasty, and my husband... More

went for a pre show dinner with my teenage daughter. Restaurant was almost full but we were quickly seated and given water. We shared pizza and sides and finished up with a hot chocolate each. The food is simply devine, the service prompt and friendly and the atmosphere relaxed but professional.

I am Italian and I was enjoying my holidays in New Zealand with my dad. As we entered Scopa we were thinking: "ok, let's eat another of these boring New Zealander pizzas". But it was love at first bite! We had two pizzas with prosciutto crudo and we were just excited because they are far better than many pizzerias here... More
