Had a simple dinner here... the food were good, prices moderate, however, the presentation of desserts could have been better for the Bavarian cream and cherries. Overall an enjoyable experience.

I do not like writing poor reviews but Scacco Matto deserves it. Simply put, this place is over rated, over cooked and over priced . Who on earth labels a starter as vegetarian that has not 1, but 4 slices of what I can only...More
