A quick dinner before a show

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.

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

After a long and very cold day of open top bus tours it was a real treat to stumble across Scopello on our way home. We were warmly welcomed by friendly and attentive but unintrusive staff and tucked into a cosy table by the Christmas tree. Our delicious meals (the fish special and short ribs) arrived quickly and were perfectly... More

The food here was really good, authentic Italian, with a good wine list; the mushroom risotto was very flavorful; their selection of bitter greens as sides was really good as well. Excellent artichoke/barley soup! Friendly courteous efficient service. Only negative is the bread, that had no character; though the olive oil/tomato dip was excellent and deserves better company!

Had a fine meal with a good recommended Sicilian wine...Risotto was uncommonly good for a local restaurant...Service friendly...Only negative was the bread that had no character; would expect a hearty rustic Sicilian loaf with this fine quality of food...

Popped in here for dinner prior to an event at BAM and were pleasantly surprised by how decent this place was. Though it was busy on an early Wednesday evening, we were seated and had some nice glasses of chianti with spaghetti carbonara and there is a "to share"pizza appetizer that we just loved. In and out on time for... More

They also have outdoor dining in the front.The food was just OK and very reasonably priced. Waited forty minutes for the food and had... More

Holding four tickets for the BAM on a Saturday night. Followed the recommendations of the TripAdvisor foodies in the prior reviews and made a 6:00 reservation at Scopello. Could not have been a better choice. Tremendous Grilled Calamari Salad, tasty Caesar salad, delicious homemade Pasta entrees (I enjoyed the .Linguine Alle Vongole). Reasonably priced entrees. Perfect menu for theatre goers... More
