We visited this restaurant on our first day in Wellington, whilst the restaurant is very small get here early to get a table. The menu whilst not particular extensive is enough to choose from and there are options available if you are a vegetarian, however we ordered a side order of vegetables which were not very nice and cooked in...

Service was good, friendly and prompt. We had the Monday special which was tasty and included a glass on red. The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere and was very welcoming. I'd visit again.

Had breakfast here for our anniversary last weekend. The atmosphere was great as usual, such a pleasant experience. Wait staff were friendly and helpful and polite. The big breakfast (carne) was delicious and I got mine with hollandaise sauce as an extra which was absolutely divine. Thank you, scopa!

BEST hot chocolate I ever had. I'd really like hot-choco, but Scopa's is really delicious because taste so smooth, rich & delicious. I really recommend you to take their up-size glass of hot-chocolate even it's your first time visit to try. 100% delicious in taste & really worth about the price. i <3 Scoopa (^_^)

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.

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.
