A favorite with locals for brick-oven pizza, they have a decent selection of pizzas. The salad portions are enormous; one could easily split a half-order with another person. Service is usually fast and courteous. Ambience is ok, but it's a little loud during dinner most evenings.

I enjoyed my food, although my pizza wasn't as hot as it should have been, My friend didn't enjoy her margarita pizza-said it was average. What bothered us most was the lack of service. It was before 9 when we left and we were the only ones remaining(after... More

Scarpas always has great service and food. A couple of healthy options which is great when I am counting carbs. Overall, very happy :)

We ate at Scarpas for the first time last night and were not disappointed. There are many different types of wood fired pizza and we tried the primavera. It was good but lacking the grilled onions. It was served with a thick slice of raw tomato on each piece which we removed as it detracted from the pizza itself. The... More

I picked up a wild mushroom pizza on my way home from work. By the time I got there (5 min drive), the pizza was cold. The crust was light and tastey, but the toppings of cheese and mushrooms was just ok. Because the pizza crust is so thin, I suspect it didn't hold the heat. I think if I... More

The asparagus soup is awesome, and the salads are large and packed with fresh and flavorful ingredients. Garlic bread is served with salads and soup, and pizzas are tasty as well, though we didn't partake on this visit.

We go to Scarpa's probably twice per month. The service is usually good. Had a bad server in January, but the Mgr made it right and comp'd the meal. Pizzas are creative and really good. Salad's are huge and quite tasty. My favorite is almost always spot on - Viccinicci with Sausage and Green Chile. Wife loves the Shrimp Scampi.... More

Had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. I actually ate here twice with the last time being the day before new year's eve. The service was awesome and food was on point. I'm personally not a big fan of the brick oven pizza but theirs is done just right. I had the wild mushroom pizza with a salad and was... More
