We had to wait about 15 minutes for a table but that was OK. They were pretty busy! We had the calamari starter, a marguerita pizza and a side of roast potatoes - all very tasty and good value I felt. I would definitely go back (maybe on a less busy night, if there is such a thing!).

Great authentic pizza, some local twists to it, but one of the better pizza crusts to be had in Wellington. Not take-away cardboard or American-style overloaded with ingredient pizza. No, simple, delicious, the way pizza is meant to be. Good coffee, good ambience, and the quirkiest male urinals i have ever seen in a restaurant in Wellington.

Every winter I go looking for the best hot chocolate drink in Wellington - it's something to get through the cold winter months, when it rains sideways. This winter was no exception and now that spring is here, I'm happy to say that Scopa has won my very unscientific survey. The hot chocolate there is divine! It's creamy and rich... More

We have lived in the city for over 8 years and tried many places to eat brunch/lunch at the weekend. Today we decided to try Scopa as we had not visited before. This was a mistake unfortunately. Things started out well - we ordered coffee and 2 hot meals and the waitress was pleasant. The coffees arrived and a short... More

Thank you for your feedback. Firstly, we would like to apologise that your experience at Scopa was less than positive.

Although not quite typical Italian fare it is very good! Worth a try and a good location on Cuba St. Friendly staff.

I just LOVE the margarita pizza here. I'm not usually one for such simple flavoured pizza however the bases on the pizzas are just amazing mmm mmm. Chewy yet doughy yet crunchy!!? at $15 is a great steal however Scopa offer a discount for takeaways so its $13.50 to take away and on Tuesdays the marg is only $8!!! brill

Went here for a family dinner, 10 in total including 4 children. While no children's menu they happily offered smaller portions & non menu items which was extremely accomodating & appreciated! The tasty menu makes it difficult to choose, ended up ordering the calamari & burnt butter ravioli & both were delicious! Everything about this restaurant is great, food, service... More

We stopped in for breakfast on Saturday morning right after Scopa opened (9am) so had our choice of tables. The server dropped menus and water off right away, and took our order just a couple of minutes afterwards. I had the fagioli (tomatoes, beans and cheese, topped with an egg and served on wholegrain bread) and one of the cafe's... More

Shame that there were not very generous with there toppings - I ordered a prawn pizza and I expected a bit more than a prawn per... More
