First meal out when we arrived in Wellington. We ordered the gnocchi which was simply divine. The flavours worked perfectly,I've never enjoyed a plate of food so much! It's been a while since we ate there and to this day I still remember how great that gnocchi was. I would happily travel another 7 hours to get a mouthful of... More

We've tried different hot chocolates in Wellington, chocolate factory cafe included. The creamy and thick scopa's hot chocolate is the best one so far though! The staff is cheerful and is a cosy and comfortable place to go. 5/5

We were looking for somewhere warm with good staff and a good breakfast not not too over the top on price, in Scopa we got exactly what we were looking for great coffee, good selection of different food and warm and friendly staff.

I loved then fact that the dishes we got were made with simple ingredients but the combination of flavours were perfect. Good simple ingredients mixed skilfully to create a dish that was perfect. We had the squid-ink gnocchi with chilli, brussel sprouts and pancetta lardons, and although that sounds a bit strange it was magic. The contrast in textures and... More

After wandering up and down Cuba Street we were attracted to Scopa as they were advertising a 2 for 1 Spaghetti and Meatball dinner. In addition it looked like a nice cozy, busy restaurant full of happy people. It was a very good choice. The spaghetti and meatballs was very good along with some good red wine. The 2 for... More

True Italian in style the menu is full of pizza and pasta, salads and deserts. It's a dark interior with the sound of music and chatty people. The place is always buzzing. Great wine list too with a mix of local and Italian wines.

Had the pizza last time I was there and was yum! Coffee always good and atmosphere and surrounds are lovely and right in the heart of the city. Food is yummy and nice place to get away from it all. You might not always get a table as they get busy but worth a try. Recommend this café as consistently... More
