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 food was very good as were the cocktails and wine selection. I had the pappardelle w/ tender lamb meatballs which was delicious,all the ingredients were incredibly fresh. The service was...

We ate here after the marathon and it was so good we went back again 2 days later. The scallops and tomahawk pork chop were delicious and there is a good choice on the menu. Quite expensive but worth it.

Loved the food here - great atmosphere and good service, but it is the food that I would return for. Great Italian with some modern variations. Plenty pf plates to share or order individually.

We were in Boston for 6 days and had booked Scampo for our 2nd evening there. The setting, the food and the staff are absolutely fantastic, so much so we went back again on our last night.

Great Restaurant - new style Italian - Buzzy location with a fantastic bar in the Hotel as well as in the Restaurant. Food was outstanding - beautifully presented and was delicious. Great atmosphere and service. Try the specialty Breads - especially the 'Elephants Ear' . Scampo's is not cheap but worth every dollar. My family and I had a fantastic... More

I can't speak an awful lot to our encounter, it was a stop after the Boston Marathon and we were tired and hungry and Scampo was killer. The ladies got wonderfully fresh raspberry cocktails and they had one of my favorite wines on by the glass (Honig Sauvignon Blanc) - the beer selection was a bit underwhelming, however. Being there... More

I stayed at The Liberty Hotel, and I never have huge expectations for the restaurants in the hotel, but I was with Scampo. It was delicious and the service was fantastic. The mozzarella...yum!! Happy I was able to eat there before I left.

Scampo is one of my favorite places to eat. I love the variety of bread and we tried the Ciccio bread this time which was delicious. I am a vegetarian and usually get the pizza with truffle and chanterelles and it is amazing. I don't like when mushrooms are big and chunky and they aren't on this pizza. The restaurant... 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.
