We ate at Scopa Caffe while on a NZ Xmas cruise - we had two of their gourmet pizzas and they were outstanding. Very fresh ingredients and unlike many Italian restaurants, came to our table looking (and tasting) like a culinary masterpiece. VERY small place, so you may have to wait at the bar or come back after some shopping... More

I've been coming here for mid week dinners and special occasions alike since Scopa opened many years ago, and it is always fantastic. The service, the food, the tiramisu and the wine list - all thumbs up. Do bear in mind you can't book unless you're a group bigger than 5+, and it's busy, all the time! Totally pleasant to... More

With so many options on Cuba Street, this is a nice little Italian which serves tasty pizza and pasta and has excellent service where the staff pay wonderful attention to detail to you as a customer - I will definitely be going back soon. Something to note, there is no WiFi, however, make sure you get a table by the... More

We stumbled upon this place and were only stopping for a drink but on seeing the menu and food we couldn't resist! The bruschetta was incredibly tasty and so well seasoned and the pizzas were delicious with great thin bases. Service was really good- very friendly without being over the top. Would definitely recommend :)

Went with the kids. The place was very busy. Staff were most accommodating and friendly. The pizza is made freshly in front of you. The quality was excellent. Would highly recommend. Very good value.

I usually get my hot chocolate from this place. Nothing beats Scopa hot chocolate. They have great pizzas too.

We arrived at about 7:30 on a busy New Year's Eve. We were greeted by a very welcoming and competent maitre d. Despite the fact it was a busy night the service was very good and our pizzas were tasty and fresh. Although this is not the first time I have dined at Scopa, after our fantastic experience last night... More

Great place to have dinner in Cuba St... The pizzas are authentic, the wine's great, the ravioli with burnt butter was delicious and the service is nice. The atmosphere is lively - including watching the pizza chef toss each dough base up in the air to enlarge it. Nice place for italian casual dining !!
