Great Location, Food and Service

I was introduced to lunchtime at Scopa, on my birthday a couple of years ago, by a Wellington hospitality veteran who loves the place. I quizzed, "Scopa?", he answered, "You'll see".

I like the friendly vibe of this place - always made to feel welcome - drink at the bar if full as table turn quickly. Food is all around the $30 per person - we normally have a margherita pizza to start and then a pasta or risottos as a main They have a good selection of wine - the... More

We wanted an Italian meal to finish off our fantastic 5 day holiday in Wellington and Scopa came up on the google seach engine. The place was bustling busy, always a good sign of a popular restaurant, the staff were friendly on arrival, found us a table tucked away for the two of us. We had our water topped up... More

Best pizza I'd had in a long time. Authentic. Fab service with attention to detail including recommendations on wine and desserts. The amazing hot chocolate rounded off an excellent evening. What a shame I live out of town!

We had dinner at Scopa, the pizza is among the best I've eaten and the staff were extremely attentive and friendly. It's reasonably priced and has a great vibe.

The place was hip and alive with great food and a wait of 15 minutes to get it. Empty places with no wait usually suck.

I go to Scopa all the time, and it's hard to pass it by when planning a meal out. I love the Rosa Maria pizza and tiramisu.

I love Scopa! I have never been disappointed yet, their pizzas are amazing, the best in town. But no meal is complete without a Italian Hot Chocolate, these are absolutely devine! Scopa has a great atmosphere and is always busy. I would recommend it to everyone! Best service, best food!

Recomended a perfect glass of wine, was attentitive to all customers on a very busy night, but took time... More
