I stopped by Scarpas for lunch today, as I had not been there in a couple of years. To start with, the host seating me was very friendly and welcoming (good traits for a person in that position!). Observing the diners seated nearby I thought everything they were eating looked delicious and well, huge. I thought of ordering a half-order... More

We loved our recent dinner at the Academy Road Scarpas. The service could not have been more attentive, helpful and responsive. I had the shrimp pasta and it was fresh and delicious. You don't want to miss the torte dessert! Laurie & Del from Fort Collins, CO

Scarpas has become a favorite spot for my wife and I. Recently we had the opportunity to go to dinner with our daughter and her 2 girls as well. All were well pleased with their choices, including a nice selection of "kids" meals. I repeated an order of green chile chicken alfredo, which was marvelous as always. My wife selected... More

While returning home from our vacation in the Denver/Boulder area, we spent the night in Albuquerque and decided to go to Scarpa's Pizza -- which we've enjoyed in the past, but had not eaten at in more than three years. We found that the menu had changed and now had many pizza offerings we were not familiar with. So we... More

We go to Scarpas on Academy since it is so close to home. We have several favorites including the insalata pollo, arancia salad, wild mushroom pizza. They offer Cline Zin by the glass, is a very good value and has the best dessert I have ever had.

Scarpas is a long time favorite in Albuquerque. The food is excellent and we've never had a disappointing meal. Service at the Montgomery location is excellent, even when we have a large party with little kids. Scarpas has two locations - the Academy location and Montgomery - both are the same company. I want to emphasize the quality of service... More

I always order the same thing but when you find a good thing you just have to do it. Love the Southwest Chicken Salad. They truly know how to make a salad a main course. Their salads are huge! The pizza is perfect - generous portions. Service always good.

I had a veggie pizza here, and I thought it was wonderful. There were many different types of vegetables on the pizza, and it was delicious. I really think it's one of the best pizzas I've had. Looking forward to going back to ABQ to visit Scarpas again!

I had a great salad here as did my friends. We each had different salads, each was praised for the flavor. The portions were quite large, so you won't go hungry eating a salad here. Service was pretty quick considering that the place was very full. (We had lunch there.) All at pretty reasonable price.
