Decent food.

Visiting Albuquerque for business and my wife and I were in the mood for pizza but didn't want chain pizza. Looked on TA for pizza places in Albuquerque and it seemed like a lot of the recommended ones were down by the University but we didn't want to travel down there and fight for limited... read more

I loved the food at 'Scarpas' and the service was nice too. Went there for lunch and dinner. Their prices are quite affordable.

I was planning to take half of my pizza to go in order to eat later; however, the Pizza Primavera that I ordered during my sit down lunch was so delicious, I devoured it all during lunch. The pizza is thin with a nice crispy crust; toppings are fresh and delicious. An absolute winner. The other meals, including salads, that... More

I used to always be sure the pasta would be hot and fresh and the salads cold and crisp. Alas, it is getting a little sloppy. The restaurant needs to light some fires under the staff!

Stopped here on a whim and were pleasantly surprised. We ordered viccinicci pasta with chicken, cheesy bacon pizza and margharita pizza. All were delicious, full of flavor and hot! This is the closest pizza crust I've found in Albuquerque that reminds me of Neapolitan pizza in Naples, Italy. I would even consider driving on family pizza night to get this... More

We recently visited Scarpas for lunch as we were on the east side of Albuquerque for other business and we use to frequently visit that restaurant when we lived on that side of town as we really liked the food. This time though, I have to say it was just okay... We got there for lunch around 1:30 and the... More

Scarpa's is either an upscale pizza parlor or a low-end Italian restaurant. But they're not schizophrenic about their pricing; it's way too high for what is offered.

We visited Scarpas for dinner on a weeknight. We were seated and the first thing we noticed was that the chair seat cushions were so worn that we sank almost all of the way through (and we are not over-weight). We then looked over the menu and noticed that lasgna was not included which is unusual for an Italian restaurant.... More

We were 3 people who wanted pizza. Scarpas was close to our hotel so we stopped in. We ordered a full size salad and it was huge and very good. We also ordered our pizza to share and it was a 10 inch pizza ( I didn't realize how small 10 inches were), but the pizza had a really good... More

This is my second visit and again I was pleased with food and surroundings. Generous salads and pizza to share. Entrees plentiful also. Fair selection of beers. Casual atmosphere, don't need to dress up. Available easy parking and because they weren't super crowded, we sat and weren't rushed to leave.
