“Excellent service”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We ate here twice in a row and it was busy and lively each evening. This place has a good buzz. The food is good, the wine well chosen but what makes it really work is that the service is notable. Staff were consistently attentive and exceptionally good spirited. My youngest daughter was given iced water as a courtesy even though she didn't order anything whilst waiting at the bar for our table. There seems to be some secret signal going on as to when people need attention and I had the impression that, either by luck or design, everyone seemed to know what was going on and what needed to be done. Menu options are good. The vegetarian gnocchi was excellent. Everyone else loved their pizzas and as for the hot chocolate. Oh em gee. It is a food group all of its own. Try one. Even if you feel too full for pudding, just squeeze it in, one delicious secret recipe spoon full at a time. All in all a nice family restaurant.

“Awesome pizza's!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

My friend and I both had pizza for tea - both were delicious. Nice thin base, yum toppings, not too gluggy..... very good pizza. Wines we had were also very nice, and the service was good.

“Excellent Coffee & Pizza”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Scopa is a good place to have coffee, brunch or lunch. It is a regular haunt of ours. The pizza is superb, as are the salads and other dishes on the menu. Service is always friendly and efficient. Also a good place to chill over a coffee and watch the world go by.

“Always great pizza - ask for the chilli oil”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Pizza here is authentic Italian and always good. Have had to take out more as the place is always super busy. Brunch is always really good too. Central location and friendly atmosphere. Good for family or small groups.

“Slow service but great food”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Good value daily specials, different special each day of the week but can be a bit pricey for lunch if not ordering the $10 special. Service can be on the slow side at times so also not good if you are in a hurry.
