We went here on a Tuesday and had their $8 12" Margarita Pizza. It was fresh and tasty and reasonably priced. Service was friendly and good!

Pizza and service always good at Scopa. Had a good selection of their pizzas today - all very tasty. Recommend the prosciutto, mushroom and rocket pizza with a cold Peroni!

Years ago, when we lived in Wellington, my family and I often visited Il Casino, the first Italian restaurant in the Kiwi capital, owned and run by a "genuine" Italian (there weren't many then). Fast forward thirty years and his son is managing Scopa, a nice and modern looking restaurant, in the heart of the capital, one of now many... More

We brought our friend from overseas here as we were so impressed the other time we ate at Scopa. We ordered the Oxtail Ravioli which was TINY. My partner was still hungry so dug into my pizza which was delicious. Our friend ordered the spaghetti and said although it was tasty, it was quite watery. Maybe an off night? We'll... More

On a rainy day, I had my lunch here. I ordered Minstroni soup and a pizza and they were both great. They were very tasty and the price was good too.

Brunch! Ordered a mimosa - barely felt/tasted the alcohol. The caprese was fantastic. Mozzarella was fresh, the tomatoes just right, and the spices/oil was delish. Service was good

We stopped in here for a coffee and something light to eat and there were some good options on the menu. Their coffee is excellent and instead of fries or wedges we had a bowl of roast potatoes which were very tasty indeed! Friendly staff, nice open friendly atmosphere and one more great place on Cuba Street in Wellington.

Excellent pizza with many variations - Peroni on tap is reason enough to go! (Such a huge plus!) Sit at the semi-circular bar for even speedier food service. Reasonable prices, central location, and a fun, vibrant atmosphere. Well done!

We're visiting Wellington and was perusing Cuba street. Looking for a place to eat at that was catching our eye as far as cuisine and prices. Italian sounded good even though the prices in most restaurants were quite high. This one was the least expensive but not by much. The food turned out really good. She had a pizza and... More
