Another nice restaurant in the neighborhood.

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 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

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

I'm at a loss. When Scusi first opened my wife and I gave it a try. I don't recollect what we ate. I do remember being bored. We both commented..."Boring." We never went back. Until days ago. Friends wanted to try it. We agreed. I have great memories of Italian food while growing up in NY. The Carolina's veil parmesan... More

The food is good, the ambiance is "busy" and noisy (but o.k.) and the staff is helpful but seem a bit overwhelmed. The homemade gnocchi is delicious and unique. It's very light and not chewy/gummy. The pizza is delicious with a fabulous crust. A fun place for big groups. Nice outdoor seating on the sidewalk, too. A great neighborhood place.

Sorry, but this is just o.k. - not bad if you want to try something new, but don't expect a lot. This is owned by the Blue Plate Restaurant Company, the same company that runs the popular Groveland Tap, Highland Grill, Longfellow Grill, etc. Popular but not impressive.
