RUN to New Haven for SKAPPO!- Great food, matching wine, and a unique Italian menu in rustic decor. But the warmth of the owner family and the deeper connection to Italian culture make this a unique experience. Il Mondo Vecchio! Eat slowly!.

A delicious dinner event at Skappo Wine bar. This was a fixed menu/fixed price event that was absolutely fantastic. Delicious meal and wines plus background jazz during dinner (live trio) and rock n roll after! It was like a New Year’s Eve celebration in February.

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
