Enjoyed a great dining experience here. Top class pizza and anti pasto. Servers knew their stuff and the ambiance was spot on. Excellent location on Cuba St.

Delicious authentic tasting Italian food, I highly recommend the lasagna. Good portions, reasonable pricing. The service is great, staff are friendly, enthusiastic and helpful. The waiting time is short for meals, despite being a very popular restaurant. The hot chocolate is to die for! "The best hot chocolate in Wellington" is not an exaggeration. It's like drinking a mixture of... More

I had the special. It was spaghetti with ham , peas, and chilli. It was magnificent. A really delicious creamy sauce, not to heavy, just perfect. You should probably consider the special also.

Went in search of a meal on the Monday Anzac day was observed so there was not a lot open but glad we chose Scopa. They still offered their Monday deal and a great selection on both the food and drinks menus

Always enjoy eating here, the pizza and pasta dishes are great, always a good atmosphere and buzz in the restaurant. Staff are really pleasant and friendly which is great. Decent choice of beers on tap, nice to see Peroni on tap (haven't come across too many places in NZ that serve it). The Monday $15 meatball deal is great value.... More

The layout and staff of this cafe leave much to be desired. The coffee is average as well. The pizzas are great however, and on Mondays the margarita pizzas are only $8. I just feel like the cafe is very dated and needs a revamp of the whole environment.

I'd been recommended to go to Scopa and try out their hot chocolate, so I did! Not your typical hot chocolate drink at all! Perfect balance of sweetness and it also had actual thick and creamy chocolate in it. Absolutely loved it. Staff were attentive and very friendly, even refilling our water cups spontaneously, without us having to ask, which... More

We had been in Scopa before but just for a quick drink, on a sunny day they doors open onto the street and it has a good location on the corner of Cuba and Ghuznee so you can people watch. Friendly and attentive staff which is what brought us back. Today was to read paper and have a coffee which... More

Having been disappointed at another restaurant in Wellington with the long wait for a table, we were really pleasantly surprised at finding Scopa. The service was excellent and after a very short wait we were seated. The menu was very good and when my pizza arrived it was one of the best I have ever had with a tasty topping... More
