Staff all nice, menu reads well. Food was just OK and missed the mark a few times. Good wine by the glass selection. Super late on seating our reso though they did try to make up for it.

What an amazing dinner, "I can't believe we haven't been here before" is what we were all saying. My wife and I stayed at the Liberty hotel for one night while visiting family and without even knowing Scampo was right downstairs we booked our family's Saturday night dinner there. Needless to say we were quite surprised when we didn't even... More

We were staying at the Liberty Hotel and found the restaurant to be the perfect spot on a cold night! The food was very good and the atmosphere was nice! We had a great table with a nice view of the restaurant. We got the mozzarella tasting and split a pasta dish. I wasn't thrilled that they charged us for... More

Food was very good. Price is of a luxury hotel but overall nicely appointed and the service also very good. Worth the try - For the owners. If a client wants to seat on a table even if is alone, please dont push for the bar...

Comfortable wide seats. Nice service. Pleasant server. Warm rolls. Water glass kept full. Great chocolate mousse and peanut butter ice cream dessert. Bathroom is miles away from restaurant and faucets are tricky - hardly any water flows. Patio area needs a bit of attention - could be more attractive in off season.

We dined at Scampo for the second time and found the food to be well prepared and the selection was excellent. The first time went about a year ago was for a prix fix all inclusive dinner. We enjoyed the experience both times and the food was tasteful and well prepared.

Not my first time to Scampo but needs a review. A rare date night out. LIvely, good vibe to this place. The food is always solid. Started with appetizers of beet salad and scallion pancake to mix it up a bit. REALLY good. We both ordered pasta dishes and they were excellent. Shared a dessert, four glasses of wine, coffee....

the restaurant is lively, loud and good. It is great to go an sit at the bar, or go for a drink or a sit down dinner. I do find the food a tad more expensive than I feel it is "worth", however you can always get pizza and a salad and the chef is rather well known, to say... More

Description
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.
