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

I'm more coffee lover than hot chocolate but when others recommend Scopas hot chocolate then you've just got to take the plunge, so, I did and it was great - we were not disappointed! Two of us for hot chocolate on a cold weekend afternoon seemed the ticket. The service was good even though we caught them at a busy... More

Very nice restaurant with food very good but ordering the beef ravioli it was very small and not a lot. The people next to us obviously new as they ordered pasta each and then two pizzas between four. Great food just not enough on the plate for the price.

Had a lovely lunch here today, sharing a tasty pizza. Pity the wine glass was removed with the used plates before the wine was finished.

Stopped in for a brunch as menu looked promising. Had the Scope Carne. The eggs were well poached but otherwise pub breakfast. Grilled bread (not toast) was flaccid, mushrooms though well cooked lacked love no butter thyme or garlic for example. No caramelization on the bacon and the sausage was heavy handed on the fennel. OK but not work a... More

We stopped in for a "snack" and a glass of wine. We split the delicious risotto (which they served in two separate bowls for us) and had a 1/2 carafe of the house pinot gris. Service was great, and it is a nice place for people watching on Cuba St. We had planned on dinner a few hours later, and... More

We stumbled on Scopa Caffe after a longer-than-expected walk down Cuba St - we learnt not to trust New Zealander's directions! The service was very friendly and knowledgeable, bot regarding the food and the drinks. We were greeted warmly, and had the specials explained thoroughly. I enjoyed the pizza, while my wife enjoyed the pasta special. I also enjoyed yet... More
