We only had a short time in Wellington and were exploring Cuba Street when we came upon this place. It had tables in the window available and we wanted to people watch so decided to give it a try. The service was very friendly and efficient. This was our first meal in New Zealand, so we were surprised by how... More

We came to Scopa first for lunch. It had been recommended to us by friends who had loved it when they visited. For lunch we shared a pizza and a rocket salad, and each had a glass of wine. The food was really great, fresh and tasty. The service was prompt and friendly. When we were there for lunch it... More

This is my favourite Italian restaurant anywhere - run by second-generation Wellingtonian Italian restaurateurs so all the authenticity you could wish for in terms of its culinary roots and deep Wellington experience. Location is on a busy Cuba St corner (best part of town) but never feels too noisy or "street-ish". Great, genuine, helpful service too - and always quicker... More

Service was good, food was very tasty, and wine was also good here. Atmosphere was also good and not too noisy. Prices were reasonable. This restaurant is in the Cuba street district, which is my favorite in Wellington. The restaurant is Italian and does both wood fired pizzas as well as pasta, risotto and other dishes. I had the risotto,... More

A friend of mine recommended this to us and we were very happy with our visit. Myself and two friends turned up around 8:45pm. After initially being informed the wait might be about 20 minutes we were seated almost immediately. We were starving so we ordered a starter to share while we perused the menu. One of our party had... More

Ate here as one of few places open on Waitangi Day and no regrets. Despite being really busy, staff were friendly and interested in us. Both special pizza and Quattro fromaggio pizzas were excellent as was the salad

Stopped here for a late lunch and to take a break from walking around. Scopa was perfect, as they offered a relaxing environment and quality food. The pizza was cooked to perfection: thin and crispy with slight chewiness of the crust. The vegetables on top (spinach, onions, peppers) all tasted very fresh too. Coffee was also delicious.
