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

excellent to very good rating if not for our recent takeout experience. We have been regulars at the Academy location for over 10 years - always excellent, great service. It is our go-to for birthdays and Friday nights. This past Sunday (10/6) we called to order takeout for the football games on TV and ordered our favorite Roma salads (no... 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.

I recently went to Scarpas with a group of friends. There were nine of us. We ordered several pizzas and salads. After dinner, a few of my friends ordered dessert. Parking was tough. The parking lot must be shared with another business because once I walked into the restaurant, I could easily see that there were more cars in the... More

I've had the pizza and the pasta, but the The Torta di Mele is the reason to come. The Chicken Carbonera was good - a very large helping. The pizzas are too large for one person, but not quite enough for 2 hungry folk. But the Torta di Mele is something I've never had, nor can adeuqately describe. It involves... More
