Great food but even better is the exceptional service. Waitresses were super friendly and helpful with a full understanding of the menu . Highly recommend the ginger sorbet that is served with the doughnuts. Reasonably priced.

Ate at scopa on the 2nd January, there wasn't many restaurants open but I'm glad this one was. It was very busy and we hadn't booked so had to wait for a little bit. They had a small bar area so enjoyed a drink as...More
