Good Food

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!

Super attentive and always with a smile. We ordered entrée and mains. The Antipasto platter for two was great. A selection of... More

Good points: staff unfailingly pleasant and attentive, good deal with cheaper coffee at certain times of the day. Been here several times, and the coffee is always not hot enough. Everyone loves the hot chocolate though. Not a special place to eat as a vegan.

After the night before, I was badly in need of some animal fat, salt and coffee, and Scopa came through. Good food and service with generous portions. Slightly annoying 15% surcharge for a public holiday.
