Our party of five requested eating outside and could not have had a better table or waitstaff. We all had different dishes from the seafood to fettucine to eggplant and so on. Appetizer, salad, entrees - all perfectly cooked and presented. We were pampered - even our "picky" eater was pleased.

Our waiter, Mark, was excellent. We had eggplant Parmesan and scallops. Excellent! Started off with scusa’s garlic bread—topped w tomatoes and basil—cheesy and wonderful! Highly recommend this restaurant!

Although a little spendy, the food and the service were worth every cent. Our servers were attentive, made sure our water glasses were full, as well as our wine glasses.

Wine selection was good and decently priced. Definitely a do again.

Food was very good and even though we were a party of 11 the service was great. Nobody had any complaints about any of the dishes we were served. Lobster ravioli appetizer was a hit. Price was not unreasonable for a resort town and portion sizes were large.

We sat outside on a lovely evening. The service we had was impeccable and the food was so good. Our server was so polite and described the specials in great depth. We enjoyed the evening thoroughly and highly recommend it for great quality Italian cuisine with all the great service you’d expect.
