Ordered a salad- at $18, I expected it to large enough for a main course (and as the only vegan non-pizza option, I had no choice) - it was tiny! It arrived in a very small bowl, and was of a few spoonfuls of quinoa with some leaves scattered on top. Gone in 5 minutes, and I was very hungry. A waste of money, and I left feeling robbed!

We were really excited to eat here but we felt underwhelmed. We had a group of 5 and they insisted we sit at a 4 seater despite us asking to sit somewhere else or that we were happy to wait. When we tried get another chair they told us just to squish in more. It was not comfortable and it was just rude. They did eventually tell us that we could add a table from next to us when the group was done, but it felt a little late at that point.

The food was good enough but nothing special. Dessert was the best course - the tiramisu, gelato and hot chocolate were so good! The mains let us down, they were small and not that yummy (especially the pumpkin pasta, too sweet!).

The bill was very high, the food was not good, and we began feeling mistreated by the staff. We won't be coming back when there are so many better restaurants.

Came back here a week after being impressed by brunch for a light dinner. Walked in and was served immediately. We were lucky enough to get a seat right away.
The service was lovely and the decor is nice.
We ordered olives to start and a Rustica Pizza. Both were beautiful and we'll definitely return. Impressed at the great selection of beers too.

This was my first visit to Scopa (after years of recommendations from family and friends) and I will definitely return. We stopped in for one of their famous Italian hot chocolates, and a pizza. The staff were accommodating and provided professional table service. The pizza was delicious. The hot chocolate was definitely unique: think scorching hot chocolate custard. The cafe itself was warm and upmarket in its style, though our meal came in at under $20. Well deserving of its good reputation.

Was lucky enough to have brunch here on a busy Queen's Birthday Monday. Food and service were both excellent. Will definitely be back for lunch and/or next time we are in Wellington.
