Yummy

This is one great place. A little pricey but oh so yummy. Wait staff is super sweet. I come every time I'm here. Only complaint are the wine and drink prices. Food is excellently prepared and thought out. They make it super easy for kids.

We had lunch here. Me, my sister and my son shared a pizza and pasta dish. We weren't that hungry so it was enough for us. I absolutely loved the pasta. It was seafood spaghetti with garlic and butter. It was sooo good. The pizza was good too but this pasta was just amazing and I would go back for... More

We had in mind sharing a nice bottle of red over a bowl of pasta and this cafe truly delivered! Friendly service and delicious food - what more do you expect? Well, when I queried whether there were actually any pine nuts in my pasta (as I couldn't see any whole ones) I was provided with a complimentary side dish... More

This place does the best hot chocolate in Wellington, if not the world . I've been several times now with my children and have found good service and consistently delicious hot chocolate . We now bring friends and family who come to stay with us to Scopa just for a hot chocolate!

The pizza was a little disappointing, covered in far to much rocket. Also the pizza oven is gas fired not wood fired, so lacks the smokey flavour like other local pizzerias. It's good but not great.

Service was also pretty good even though they were mighty busy. Very tasty pizza with nice thin base. We did as a takeaway but restaurant looks really nice too

So I heard of someone who lived in Wellington if you love chocolate or hot chocolates you must visit scopa. We went $4 for the dreamiest cup of liquid chocolate my goodness what I would do for another cup right now. It's small but it's enough. Really amazing treat.

I was told by many to try the hot chocolates, hearing many title them as the "best hot chocolate" they have ever had. I was not disappointed, so good. Service was great, we arrived and were given glasses of water that were topped up a few times by staff! Only complaint is that my flat white was a bit lukewarm.
