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.

Unfotunately, every dish was extremely salty. We had this experience last time we were there, and we thought maybe it was a one-off... nope... different dishes, same thing. Nice ambience and service, but the food is very disappointing. We won't be back.

We went to Scopa for my birthday. No one had never been before, and we were all very impressed with the quality of the food, the service and the ambience at Scopa. The meatball appetizers, Risotto balls and Veal entrees were delicious! Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Food was outstanding as always. Matt, our server was very attentive and when he was not needed you could still see him out in his section looking at all of his Guests watching for Service ques. Music could be a bit louder so it can be heard.

The food was sub part at best. We went for new years. My husband pizza was bland and average. I had the veal saltinbocca and it was bland and overcooked. The pasta was swimming in
oil and there was more kale on the plate than anything else. That was also covered in oil. The best part of the meal was the wine. We won't return.

Food was all well presented for the price and ambiance of this place.
We had two young children with our party and it was still quite enjoyable for everyone.
They had colouring to keep them busy from the start offered by the restaurant.

Second visit to Scopa and we weren't disappointed! Service and food excellent and I'd be happy to recommend Scopa to anyone looking for tasty Italian fare at a decent price. Keep up the good work, Scopa - we'll be back again!

Hmmm....10th or 15th time coming to Scopa and as usual, did not disappoint!! Remains consistent with great food, service, & ambiance. Great spot for business lunches, team dinners, or for birthdays/anniversaries. Keep up the great work Scopa! Kev

I ordered the bruschetta, and for its price it was horrible. The crostini was not even homemade bread. It was definitely store bought. In Italian there called fette biscotto. I can even buy them at Linas. Secondly the tiramisu was awful. It was to creamy and had chunks of ricotta in between. Not very good.
Definitely a disgrace to Italian cuisine. Trust me I know I lived there for 20 years.

Remain consistent week after week, month after month. Great service, management and of course food! Suitable for a date with your honey, get together with friends or a business luncheon/dinner. Will keep coming back! Good work Scopa!

Service was attentive, however we had to let the server know right away that we were not in a hurry, as diners around us were being served very quickly, then left. Scopa does not appear to be the kind of restaurant where one should be hurried through their appetizer, main course etc. , however on this particular evening the Servers were talking, and serving extremely quickly, like they needed to get onto the next table. This was a turn off, as the food was flavorful and prepared well; thus, needed to be savored, not gobbled down like fast food!!! A second server appeared once we announced that we were not in a hurry, and this slowed things down somewhat, to a reasonable comfort level, to relax and enjoy our dining experience. We walked to Scopa, as we live nearby; this was our first time there for dinner, and we were surprised at the amount of people at the restaurant!!! Perhaps the servers did not expect such a crowd on this particular evening! We felt rushed, like we needed to eat and run.
Anyway, the food was great, but just slow your servers down somewhat in order for patrons to enjoy each course, with time in between to digest!! They are an energetic group, but must also realize that there is a wide range of demographics that will expect a different type of service, instead of the frenetic fast pace, that perhaps a 'younger crowd' might opt into!

We have been to Scopas 5 times in the past 6 months, we live near by which i believe is what Scopas focuses on. The kids love it as do we. Menu is good, pizza is very good, as is pasta and short ribs, usually one feature fish the halibut was very good. We will be going back for sure

It's been about a year since I have been there and the menu has significantly changed. It's not as good as it used to be. Very little pasta options now. They used to have a pesto pasta which was amazing and it's unfortunate it's not on the menu. My friend ordered cannelloni and it was cold so it had to be sent back. The service was great but we were not impressed with the food.

We try to frequent this restaurant as much as we can, really enjoy the atmosphere service is great! Food is good as well. Brought our friends here for the first time, they absolutely enjoyed it! Will definitely return!

The service was fast and professional. Despite the place being busy on a Saturday, everything arrived quickly, and the staff was able to accommodate substitutions without a fuss.
Expensive for the portion sizes, but undeniably very tasty. Not a place I'll go regularly, but I enjoyed the visit.

The service is hit and miss. I think the hostess hates children, because she is always giving our son the evil eye. The food is great, pasta sauce is always fresh. Our last visit we made the economical choice, a first for us, to order salad and pizza and fed our family of three no problem.
