Small, family-run wine bar that is so welcoming! You feel happy as soon as you enter! Mama Skappo mingles with the patrons, sharing endearing stories about their family. It's like eating in someone's home! You don't feel 'rushed' to eat and leave. Meatballs are excellent,...More

A difficult restaurant to gauge. I came here with my family to celebrate my graduation from college. So I'm not sure if the food being served that night was representative of the standard fare at Skappo. But the experience was underwhelming and the price for...More

We came into the train station from NYC and were looking for a place to grab a late-ish dinner (8:30 pm). Skappo seemed like an easy place to get to from Union Station, so we called to make a last minute reservation for 6 people....More

We visited Skappo for dinner during the week for a family dinner. It is small but comfortable. The owner was our server, we paid strict attention to her suggestions, she was correct on all off her choices. Unpretentious atmosphere, very good food and service, we...More

We had dinner here, hoping to have something slightly different as it advertised itself as providing Northern Italian food, unfortunately we were somewhat disappointed. We had cheese and salami to start, which was fine, but a long way from the best we'd had this holiday....More

This little restaurant was walkable from New Haven Hotel where I stayed, a real gem on a street that almost seemed to be at the edge of the area people feel comfortable walking to. I have not had such an authentic home style menu even...More

Great food, not your typical Italian, though I'm not sure I'd call it a wine bar. The food is well done, flavorful with friendly but not overbearing service. The space is small but not claustrophobic. I haven't disliked a meal there.

Amazing and unusual food that isn't your typical generic Italian restaurant. We were kindly greeted by the mother and our waitress is her daughter (and also makes all the deserts!) Try the stuffed fig appetizer, we loved it so much we ordered two. Can't go...More
