The menu was amazing and our table host Adrianna described each dish with so much care and passion we wanted to try everything! Each of the dishes was value for money using the finest ingredients....

We attended this restaurant twice, and were very impressed. The diverse menu catered for a variety of tastes, and the wine list was impressive at a reasonable price..

Can never get over this place. Amazing fusion food to an enormous wine list makes it my favorite. Pizzas are must try.

I was in Boston for a couple of meetings and was staying at the hotel that Scampo shares a building with. I got in pretty late on a Wednesday because of delayed flights and such. I didnt want to go too far afield so I decided to try Scampo on a whim, it's proximity being the only deciding factor. Boy... More

Great food, atmosphere and service. Short stay in Boston, ate there twice. Still dreaming about their Tiramisu, Sangria, etc. First time we were seated near the open kitchen which is in the middle of the restaurant- you can watch chefs at work. And it's not chef Ramsey's kitchen- everything happens quietly and efficiently. Second time at a table- noticed the... More

I have always been a fan of Lydia Shire and have been going to restaurants for more than 20 years. Once again I had a fabulous dining experience. It started with our server, she was excellent and helped us navigate the menu and had several suggestions for dishes she recommended. Her choices were spot on, having experienced server is so...

Artistic culinary talent at its finest! This is undoubtably in the top 10 in Boston. Best seat is at the chefs table where you can view masters working their magic. Thank you to Lydia for setting the bar high and keeping it there.

Description
The stunning first floor restaurant in Boston’s Liberty Hotel, Scampo, is a culinary destination created by legendary chef Lydia Shire and The Lyons Group in April of 2008. In Scampo, Shire’s reputation for defying tradition translates into Italian-inspired cuisine unrestrained by borders, drawing on flavors from the Mediterranean and Middle East. Scampo is a reflection of Chef Shire: bold, red and full of energy. The contemporary space features shiny copper lanterns, a glowing orange bar and seating overlooking the mozzarella bar.
