About Scopa Neighbourhood Italian
Scopa is a lively Italian-inspired neighbourhood restaurant located in the heart of the Tuxedo Park Community in Calgary. Community is at our core and we work hard to create an atmosphere where our guests are received as if going somewhere familiar, just as you would find in small town eateries all over Italy.
Chef Chris Prinz seeks out seasonally fresh, local ingredients and allows them to shine in boldly-flavored contemporary Italian preparations with an emphasis on simplicity. We match our culinary offerings with a hand-selected wine list, served by knowledgeable, friendly, and genuine food and wine enthusiasts.
Really, we just love to eat and drink fine things and share them with our friends.

We found it super loud and really hard to have a conversation due to the noise level. Three of us had veal which was ok, not overly flavorful. The pasta was great and the service was good. One bottle of wine and dinner for 4 was $200 not overly good value

We enjoyed our "find" for good Italian food at a reasonable price. We seem to always look for Italian restaurants with outdoor eating options for our birthdays which are during the summer so we were delighted to eat at Sopa for the first time. And it was nice to enjoy good food at a reasonable price.

We were treated so well at Scopa! We had a glass break on our table (our fault) and the staff could not have been more helpful and kind to us. The food is always great - Spaghetti alla Carbonara is a personal favourite - and the atmosphere is a perfect balance between cozy and funky :) Thanks Scopa!

I met two friends for dinner at Scopa, and we had a great evening. We had exceptional service by our waitress, Sam, and the food was wonderful. It's a great place for sharing pizzas, and salads, and the like, and, of course, wine!
The outdoor patio is beautiful, and on a nice afternoon, or evening, it would be very pleasant.
I have been several times for lunch in the past, and I will most definitely keep going back for more.

Scopa is hands down our favorite Italian restaurant in Calgary. As always this visit was tasty, with wonderful service! If you are a group of four or more and the restaurant is able to accommodate, we highly recommend the Chef's tasting. We do this whenever the restaurant can accommodate and it is delightful!

Went here on a weekday night for dinner on a sunny day. Sat outside; the place had a open wooden cover and umbrellas, but there was still a lot of opportunity for direct sun in your eye. This was a problem for me and many of the other customers. Food was food; my husband had veal and I had an entrée salad. We had desert and the cannoli's were acceptable. Service was good. Overall a pleasant experience.

Overall very expensive for a small steak & salad with no hot vegetable or potato. The wine was also expensive for a 5 oz glass - Yes we noticed the smaller 5oz compared to the standard smaller glass of 6 oz served at other restaurants. $3.50 for a cup of coffee is outrageous! The cheesecake was delicious , but again$10.00 for a very small portion. When I compare to other similar quality restaurants your prices are very unreasonable for such small servings. The best part of the evening was our friendly waiter Chris.

We have eaten at Scopa previously & really enjoyed everything, this time around the food & service was average at best. They have done a nice job on the outdoor patio and the current menu does not have any real pizzaz. Will come back again in hopes of a better all round experience.

Loved it!!! Food was really great...giving it 4 stars....ONLY because we didn't really like the calamari with the odd sort of flour used. Would really give it 4.8 stars out of 5. Can't beat the service here. Amazing!!!

Fabulous food, friendly staff and great atmosphere! For appies we had the Polpette (meatballs) and Carpaccio. Both were exactly as they should be. The meatballs were huge and slightly spicy with a super flavorful tomato sauce (great to dip bread in!). The Carpaccio was so yummy! For mains we had the Carbonara, Lasagna, Gnocchi and our 8 year old had the kids spaghetti with tomato sauce. They were all great hits! The servings are a very comfortable size (we each took 1/2 our entree home, after having had the appies). For dessert we tried the cheesecake, tiramisu and our son had the kids brownie. All were perfect. We've been here several times already and it's quickly becoming a favorite for our family.

First time at Scopa's the food was incredible and the service was great also. We were very impressed by the quality and quantity of food. My wife has put Scopa at the top of our list of restaurant to go to in Calgary. Will definitely go back again.

Scopa continues to be a favourite of ours. The food has always been good - well prepared and tasty. The pizza is also good. On Tuesday they have a ½ price special on selected bottles of wine. That makes for good value.
