One of the restaurants at the liberty hotel in Boston. Italian food in an American environment. Spacious has outdoor seating. Food is very good and nicely presented. Good choice of wine . Three covers including deserts and Italian wine 430USD. Restaurant also serves pizza and has a bar. Reservations recommended. Was busy even on a weekday .

We ate lunch here and had a salad and lobster pizza. The pizza was out of this world delicious. The restaurant is located in the Liberty Hotel and we were told the name means "escape" which goes along with the jail motif of the hotel. Nice atmosphere and I highly recommend the food.

The dining room and bar area is a gorgeous, modern space, full of happy young people. It is great if you are looking for upbeat and vibrant, but be aware it can be very noisy. There is a much quieter outdoor patio if you want a more relaxed atmosphere. Scampo bills itself as Italian and it does have some traditional... More

Staying at the Liberty Hotel and thought i would give Scampo a try for Sunday Brunch .A colleague back in Belfast recomended the Lobster Pizza ...Im not a big pizza fan ..but the lobster Pizza is The Best Ever . The lightness and flavour of the base defy definition .The flavours and texture of the topping are simply heavenly .... More

Scampo is a really fun restaurant with great service, fun cocktails, and a great menu. We started out at the bar for a drink. The bar is a good size and the overall feel of the restaurant is fun. For dinner, I had the salmon which literally melted in my mouth with a side of spinach. The salmon was probably... More

Food excellent, service acceptable but not as good as the food. What no review had prepared us for was the noise level. Are we showing our age? Having to shout to be heard over the overall level of background noise detracted from the enjoyment of the excellent food.

We went to Scampo to celebrate Mother's Day. The service I found lacking with the servers showing no enthusiasm or personality. At the beginning of meal they bring bread sticks, which were delicious. We ended up waiting a while for the main course to be served. While waiting, we asked for some more to be brought. The small portion that... More

The stunning first floor restaurant in Boston’s Liberty Hotel, Scampo, is a culinary destination created by legendary chef Lydia Shire and The Lyons Group in April of 2008. In Scampo, Shire’s reputation for defying tradition translates into Italian-inspired cuisine unrestrained by borders, drawing on flavors from the Mediterranean and Middle East. Scampo is a reflection of Chef Shire: bold, red and full of energy. The contemporary space features shiny copper lanterns, a glowing orange bar and seating overlooking the mozzarella bar.
