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. Staff are very attentive and quite attractive (just saying - you are beautiful, but that could be the hot... More

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.

Went here for dinner one night and we were seated quickly,with our option to sit in any of the free tables available. It has a nice atmosphere, relaxed with great staff. The food was good,especially the pizza which is big enough to share. A nice place to have a quiet dinner.

We had to wait for 20 minutes at the bar for a table, as it was rammed on a Monday night, but it was well worth the wait. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, and really knew their stuff when it came to both the food and drink. I had octopus spaghetti, which was really tasty, and my husband... More

went for a pre show dinner with my teenage daughter. Restaurant was almost full but we were quickly seated and given water. We shared pizza and sides and finished up with a hot chocolate each. The food is simply devine, the service prompt and friendly and the atmosphere relaxed but professional.

I am Italian and I was enjoying my holidays in New Zealand with my dad. As we entered Scopa we were thinking: "ok, let's eat another of these boring New Zealander pizzas". But it was love at first bite! We had two pizzas with prosciutto crudo and we were just excited because they are far better than many pizzerias here... More

We were looking for somewhere to have lunch on a busy Saturday and chanced upon this restaurant. From the minute we walked in the door the staff were friendly, efficient and attentive. They really know their stuff! I ordered the baked eggs and was warned by the waitress that because this is cooked in the oven to order would take... More

We are probably biased because we eat there at least once a week and have done so for a number of years. Why? Putting it simply it is because we can't find a restaurant in Wellington that delivers service, ambience, good food on such a consistent basis as this restaurant does. We keep coming back and we will keep coming... More

Scopa is a lively place with friendly and efficient service. Their pizza is very good and true to Italian pizza (as opposed to the over laden New Zealand style pizza). Their Gusto hot chocolate is divine. Scopa offers delightful fare in a bustling atmosphere.
