The pizza was bland and too oily as well as the pastas. The restaurant seemed filled with little fruit flies so we constantly had to fight them away from our table. The servers weren't the friendliest and seemed more interested in talking to themselves than taking our order.

We popped into Scopa for brunch on Sunday and once again it was reliably enjoyable - good service, great food and a nice atmosphere. All four of us had something different to eat and none of us were disappointed - the pancakes were delicious. We also had hot chocolates (how can you resist) to finish off our meal. Totally recommend... More

Am impressed with the waitress.. Memorising your order, makes it feel more like home :). The pizzas looked great, I had eggs with extras perfect. And grandson had the hot chocolate which is decadent treat! ( not if you're thirsty though...)

Scopa is excellent at any time of the day from a hearty brunch to pizza, Chianti and people watching in the evening. Always very busy so you might have to wait for a table but the small bar area is nice and it's fun to watch the pizza's being prepared. Staff are very helpful too.

I nipped in with my granddaughter for a quick lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff who went out of their way to attend to a 5 year old without being asked . They brought out colouring pens and things to colour in. She had a dairy free berry smoothie and chunky potatoes and loved them both. I... More

Yummy food, and the staff were lovely. Had the barley risotto and a pizza and both had wonderful earthy flavors. Had to wait a little while for a table, but you can watch the chef making pizzas from the bar which was interesting.

Ordered Cacio de pepe fettuccini and Pearl barley risotto, are served hot and smell so good. Flavouring a bit strong but still taste great. Both served with housemade bread which is a thick toast that tastes special
