We had a very great dinner!! The food was fantastic the service was very nice, and the ambiance was lovely. When the food came, and there was one pizza missing, the manager came and said that the pizza had stuck to the oven. 5 minutes later, he came back with the pizza, apologized for the delay, and even took it...

We went to try this place out as it came recommended to us on our travels. We were in no hurry and were enjoying ourselves. We ordered our mains (pizza) at 7PM and watched all others around us be served (even those who arrived after us). We did not get our food until 8:20PM! The food was good and once... More

Wow, what an awesome place in Wellington. The food was incredible (calamari -- the sauce was so good!-- seafood pasta, spinach/pumpkin/feta pasta and lemoncello for desert), the wine was great, the atmosphere was ideal (good people watching but also classy), and the service was excellent. Everyone was professional but also really friendly and helpful (in recommending wines and whatnot). I... More

Wow! The most amazing pasta, flavours popping in my mouth; hand made pasta, walnut pesto, tomato and olives.

If you want dessert and you can't possibly finish anything to big, you seriously need to go to Scopa and have some of the best hot chocolate you've ever had in your life!

I was meeting friends for dinner at waited at the bar with a Peroni. The atmosphere was jovial and relaxed from both staff and diners. The waiter and I had a jolly good laugh when I realised he had seen me 'miss' the opening in my face instead pouring water down the front of my shirt. He had the good... More

I had the seafood pasta which was completely insane! (I have brought ingredients to try and re-capture this meal!) the food in effect was SO simple, refined and just brilliant food it sang! You struggle to work through choices on the menu because of the distraction from the view which entices all of the tables. If your a new visitor... More

We arrived in Wellington later than the average dinner time. Thankfully Scopa was not far from our hotel and their food was good. I was a bit disappointed that they didn't serve the staple Italian dishes like spaghetti bolognaise or a meatball dish, but their risotto is highly recommended. You are able to make your own pizzas and they cater... More

We actually came here because it was cold and drizzling outside and were looking for a place to eat. But we found this place had a very welcoming and calm atmosphere and liked what the menu had to offer. The waiters were extremely kind and service was excellent! Also, the food was delicious :) So if you happen to be... More

We came here for snacks, as we had eaten lots in the day- we ended up sharing a starter and main meal between three of us, followed by hot chocolate and everything tastes really good. We will definitely come back next time we are in Wellington. Great location and service too.
