Neighborhood Italian

Great getaway on a cold winter evening. The bar is a taste of New. York in Saint Paul. Good pizza, great service. Food quality seems to have suffered recently. Great cozy atmosphere.

We had a deal offer for Scusi and went for our anniversary. They have wonderful food and service. We ordered the cheese board and the calamari as appetizers. The calamari are not breaded and have the tentacles so my husband passed. I thought they were very good. The cheese board was accompanied by nuts and jam with a good selection.... More

Scusi is a cozy family friendly restaurant with decent Italian food. My husband and I enjoy coming here for a quiet, latter evening meal. Most appetizers, pizza and entrees can be shared. The wine and beer selections are pretty good. We also enjoy dining outside at one of the sidewalk tables during cooler summer / early fall days.

We met for a business dinner. It is not a large place but it worked for our purposes. Everyone enjoyed their food. Would go back again. Street Parking

A friend who lives in the area suggested that we meet at Scusi for dinner on a Friday evening. Work schedules led us to plan an early meal, and I made a reservation on-line for 5:45 pm. I feared that the time would leave us sitting by ourselves in the restaurant, but when I arrived there already was a lively... More

Scusi has a varied menu. Pasta, chicken, fish, sandwiches, pizza. Prices are reasonable. Service was good. If you come on a nice day you can sit outside.

We came here with our daughter and her boyfriend for dinner and it was great. First tip, get a reservation as other people were being told it was a 40 minute wait at 6:00! Second tip, order the Italian chips, which were out of this world. Other than that you can't go wrong as all of our meals were delicious.... More

Terrible Cesar salad! The pizza was okay, but not the best. Blue Plate should stick to what they do best, which is NOT Italian.

Our waiter Seth was phenomenal. He provided excellent recommendations and gave us free cheesecake as a gesture of hospitality for our traveling friend. The homemade gnocchi was exceptional and the pesto pasta is not to be missed. I would suggest enjoying the stuffed artichokes as well for an appetizer. The outdoor seating is quite lovely as well.

The most meaningful part about Scusi is the casual, comfortable atmosphere. The service on both occasions I have been to Scusi have been knolwedgeable, polite and very welcoming, from the host to the wait staff to the kitchen! The menu is not overly complex and has something most guests are sure to like. On my first occassion I came for... More
