Great local hang

I'm a regular at Scopello and always enjoy the food, service and drinks. It's a great local Front Greene BK spot to hang with friends. The drinks are great with affordable Happy Hour prices and the grilled calamari salad is my favorite.

Wonderful dining experience!! We live in Italy and were visiting friends in Brooklyn and decided to try an "Italian restaurant". The food was wonderful and followed the important principals of the Italian cuisine. Appreciated also the originality put in some of the dishes. Strongly suggest polpette della mamma i.e. meatballs and the spaghetti alla puttanesca. Fabulous waiters and a great... More

I was looking for somewhere nice near BAM where our family of 9 could eat dinner prior to a performance; and really wanted to love Scopello after reading so many positive reviews. I made the reservation for 5:00 pm about one week in advance. About 30 minutes before we were scheduled to arrive, the restaurant called to confirm, but they... More

The restaurant overall is nice, small and romantic. A great place to be with your S.O. on a nice night. They serve mostly Sicilian food and you will not get regular Italian food as much which I didn't know there was a difference but I was told there was lol. The food was good, The drinks were good. I had... More

My wife and I stopped by because it is very close to BAM. We were seated right away and at first our service was slow but pick right up once our drinks arrived. It was a Wednesday night and a decent crowd in the bar area. Not a very intimate setting. It looked like they had some water problems in... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat about 11pm and there was not much choice so it seems wrong to be too harsh on this restaurant but the food was distinctly average. We both has pasta dishes but they were so non de-script I cannot recall what we ordered. Beer was good and the staff were friendly.

Three of us drove from New Jersey to see a Ballet at BAM and wanted to try brunch somewhere. While walking around, we ran across this gem of an eatery. The atmosphere was casual hip. The service was great and the food was really top notch for Sunday Brunch. We had frittatas...mine was a mushroom-dominant frittata...perfectly made, nice size portion... More

I wish we had not been in such a rush, because this restaurant was worth a more leisurely pace. We both had seafood dishes and they were very tasty. The calamari appetizer was amazing. Service was very quick and the staff were friendly. Very, very good prices.
