What a surprise find - should have tried years ago

My wife and I were planning on another restaurant, but my friend has told me many times how good Scamotz is. As we were driving by, did a quick loop around the block and parked right out front. Very small, family feeling restaurant. It feels comfortable. Sever was very pleasant and friendly. I... read more

I was in the mood for a white pizza , so since I work with the public I asked several people who they thought made the best white pizza & they ALL said Scamotz! On the island of Venice . That being said I invited 2 of my best friends to go there for dinner . Great atmosphere! Sat out... More

Mediocre salads with tasteless "home-made" dressings. Maybe the place is more about the pizza but the salads sounded great but did not produce. My husband wanted a different dressing then what normally comes with the spinach salad and was told that anything but what goes with the salad would not be good. So two different salads and neither was enjoyed.

When I first heard the restaurant was in a "strip mall", I was not inclined to be impressed but the owners have created a wonderful, secluded venue for outside dining, The salads were huge, fresh, and delicious. The pizza was fresh and flavorful, cooked to perfection - not too heavy. The service was knowledgeable and sincere, it is clear they... More

I'll skip all the other comments and get to the reason for being here. The food is made with love. Every bite is an exercise in enjoying romance between the chef and his food. To experience this is a profound moment. The salads are exceptional and much more than a single person can eat. The slightly higher cost (geez people... More

In a word: outstanding. Robert greeted us courteously and immediately seated my wife and I at the "romantic" table. The salad was a revelation, with their house dressing that perfectly complimented the greens. Garlic knots were fresh and hot and the olive oil provided for dipping was replete with fresh herbs and just the right amount and types of spices.... More

July 5, I had some family over and we to order a large meatball and sausage pizza from Scamotz's in Venice Florida. When we got the pizza home it looked disappointing. There was very little topping, which Scamotz's charged $4.00 for the meatball and $4.00 for the sausage on a base price of $17.50 for the pizza. When we tasted... More

Great, gourmet, european-style pizza. Eat outside in the grape arbor side yard. Salads are also very good. Split a salad and a pizza with a bottle of wine. What's not to like? It is small, but that make it charming and intimate. We go here one a month or more.

Menu says fresh basil and patio is lined up with many basil plants. No shortage of basil. Pizza still had very little basil..no more than previous time. When check... More

We visited Scamotz one evening after it was recommended to us by a friend. We were very happy with the pizza & garlic knots. It was a comfortable environment & we will definitely return. It doesn't seem to be easy to find thin crusted pizza in Florida but their pizza is good.
