“Great experience”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

We had a delightful evening at Scopa, including the food, wine, servers and the ambiance. The food was flavorful, with good portion sizes. The chicken is a must try. Wine was very reasonably priced. We had a really nice bottle that carried only a few dollar mark-up. Our server was happy, helpful and a delight to interact with. And despite the fact that the restaurant space is small, it was well designed to make it feel large and comfortable. I'll return to Scopa next time i'm in the area.

“A big win in Healdsburg!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Wonderful authentic Italian food - served in a bustling small restaurant. Loved it! We shared a number of appetizers - we had the "special" wild boar soprezata (sp?) - which was incredible (house made). We also had the most wonderful Arancini's .... We had too many appetizers so ended up sharing the chicken and polenta dish - WOW - it was fabulous... served in a pot - incredible. We have eaten at a number of restaurants in Healdsburg, this is one of our new favorites! I also should mention how good the service was - the server and "back up" servers work as a team - all were pleasant, helpful and very timely. If you're going to be in the area, CALL AHEAD for reservations - the place is always packed!

“Great Solid Italian Meal”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Our first visit to Scopa was over two years ago based on a reccomendation and it is now part of every visit to Healdsburg. Everything we ever ordered was simple and delicious. This recent trip we shared the Steak for Two served which was served with a simple arugula salad and roasted potatoes. Perfect! The Burrata cheese appetizer is heaven as well. Although I didn't have it, the chicken entree (I believe Nonna's Chicken) was ordered by the table next to us. The gentleman who ordered it announced it was the best meal he ever had. Reserve early (up to one month in advance) or go early and eat at the bar. Enjoy!

“Do not miss for great Italian food”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

This is the 3rd time we have dined here and it just seems to get better. Roasted vegetables, off the menu, polpette, those delicious meatballs, spaghettini with sugo- all just wonderful. Yes, a tiny place and you do need to reserve way in advance. But so worth it.

“WONDERFUL AUTHENTIC ITALIAN”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We had the meatballs as appetizer and a pair of pasta dishes
which were fantastic. Very authentic and flavorful - reminded
us of Rome and better than most Italian that we've had here
in USA - especially at the price. Service was also very good
although space is tight and noise level high. Will definitely
be back to Scopa when visiting Healdsburg next time. Do
make reservations in advance if you want to get in.
