Bland food, terrible owner

This wasn't the fist time we noticed that the food was bland. We ate here a few times in the past, and remarked about how tasteless the pizza was. On the occasion, we were out with another couple, and we ordered two pizzas for our table. After about a 50 minute wait, our pizza came, only to find... read more

Food average . Not much room. No atmosphere. We would not go back. It was a cold day and they sat us by exit door.

I first ate at Scamotz 2 years ago and was excited to have my wife enjoy this restaurant with me last week. We were both quite disappointed. The pizza (Margarita), had very little flavor. While the fresh tomatoes were still quite good, the overall flavor was bland, not at all as I remember from 2 years ago. Interestingly, good friends... More

It's small, but quaint, the owner seems grumpy but he's a teddy bear. The food is superb! The best pizza I have had in a long time. Six white cheese pizza and the Eternal Summer salad are my favorites. So don't miss Scamotz before you go to the Theater. They open at 5:00 but Bill will let you in to... More

Best summer salad. Best home made pizza pie. Bill and Emma know how to make your food experience special.

Went here for the first time last Sunday and loved it. The little pizza bites/dip that they bring out before your meal are phenomenal! The dip is like a sweet, herbed butter...I could have eaten a whole tub of that stuff!! My husband and I shared one of their large salads and 12" pizza. Both were very good. We do... More

Scamotz is across from the Venice (Little) Theater. It is tiny , but has a few outside tables in a garden like setting - very nice. We eat here a lot - small pizza to share and two salads. The pizza is gourmet, European style, and great! The salads are the best in town. The Wine selection is the only... More

Went on a Wednesday, hoping to have a pasta dish. It was all veggie parmesan. No problem, plenty of choices. Split a small salad (big enough for two) small pizza with olives, pepperoni and mushrooms. I had an appetizer of meatballs and side of garlic bread. Both were enough for a meal. The meatballs were rich with onions and peppers... More

Stopped in on New Years day to try the pie. Seated inside as garden was full. Not as quaint as outside but still nice and cozy. Ordered bottle of wine and four pizzas right away. Liked that we could all order our own individual pizzas. They filled quite quickly. Watched the manager interacting with guests and noticed an odd air... More

6th or 7th time eating at this restaurant and it just keeps getting better! The first thing is that the service is always exceptional. I have ever been here and had service that was less than excellent. And then there are those darned "knots". Delicious little rolls served with your drinks. They come with this delicious butter that has veggies,... More
