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 Justin Lall 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.

Scopa Neighbourhood Italian Ratings and Reviews
Pizza is $10 after 8 pm in the week...what a deal!! Three of us had a later dinner out at Scopa and we each ordered a different pizza. What were we thinking? Each pie will feed 2 people, so not an individual serving...unless you are really, really hungry!! Had enough pizza leftover for another lunch and dinner. Good deal, along with the 1/2 litres of wine for 1/2 price on Thursdays.
Great way to have a really nice less expensive evening out with good food and an enjoyable atmosphere!! Highly recommend!!
Excellent service, excellent food.
Outside of our own experience, I was impressed by how many families with small children were accommodated. It was obvious that the tiny kids loved the place! Parents were relaxed, kidlets were stuffing their little faces with pasta, and our date night was not impacted whatsoever by the wee ones. Everyone was happy! We had theatre tickets and our server was fantastic in making sure we had plenty of time to enjoy our meal and make our show.
Thanks for a great night out! We'll be back with our own kids soon! :)
This was my first time at Scopa. The food and atmosphere were great. Serving staff were professional and courteous. There was a minor mixup with our order, but the error was corrected right away with no questions. Overall, a very nice dining experience. We will be back!
The Pain au Chocolat and coffee were amazing... and no lineups for Saturday brunch how awesome!
But the brunch menu needs some work.
Potatoe pancakes were too different (who wants salad for breakfast).
And worse the lemon pancakes were not eatable. Way too strong on the lemon, and worse they were burnt on the outside and undercooked on the inside. An order of side sausage was dry and over cooked also uneatable. No excuses it was fully unexceptable!
Service was great. Food was delicious. My brother in law and myself had the duck on special and were amazed at the portion sizes and the flavour of the duck. The veggies on the side were undercooked but the duck made up for this. My sister in law had the linguine vongole which was very good and of a good portion size. My girlfriend had the ravioli which was good; however, the portion was very small, roughly a dozen of the smaller sized ravioli. For dessert we had the tiramisu and the cannoli both of which were very good.
This is probably the 5th time we have taken out of town friends to Scopa and our group has enjoyed each experience. Relaxed, friendly and good food to enjoy. The half price half liter of wine was a nice surprise. The arancini was great as usual and the minnistrone soup was first rate. Half orders of pasta would be nice but overall a favorite restaurant of ours and we will be back.
We tried Scopa as the neighbour Italian. Everyone was helpful and friendly and the atmosphere is nice. I ordered a pizza without mushrooms and my girlfriend chose the Cannelloni. Well, my pizza came with mushrooms, but we got both meals made fresh, since the Cannelloni wouldn’t have kept waiting for a fresh pizza, which seemed very promising.
Unfortunately the freshly re-made food didn’t convince, especially not as Italian. The pizza was quite Americanized over loaded with toppings and pizza 73 style cheese. The Cannelloni were rather bland. The atmosphere and the bill that we generated certainly promised an authentic Italian neighbourhood experience but the food itself just couldn’t live up to it.
I have had dining experiences here a few times, but this last visit did not turn out so well. Three of us ordered the veal scallopini and in each of the three dishes there was at least one of the pieces of veal that was off in taste and smell. The Manager was very attentive to our concern and quickly replaced our meals with something else on the menu. As I have not had any other issues before, I will probably come again. Another dining companion ordered the lasagne and it looked amazing. Maybe, I'll try that next time.
Went to Scopa for dinner to celebrate a birthday. Food was wonderful. Two of us had the seafood pasta special, which was delicious...Scallops were done perfectly!! Appetizers and dessert were a great start and finish.
Only disappointing thing was although we specified in the online reservation that we were coming in to celebrate a birthday, nothing was mentioned by the hostess or the waitress. Why ask if you don't care. Otherwise, food and evening was very enjoyable...we will be back. Cheers!!
Amazing food, best Italian I’ve had for a while. Everything we ate was great. My only negative would be the seating, the tables could be bigger and the chairs a bit more comfortable. This is a minor thing, only if I’m being picky. We would definitely go back!
Only concern, it was a bit slow at lunch, the staff were challenged by the volume of customers. Maybe they were not expecting so many as most of us were from a conference group.
Excellent food, we went both days it was so nice. Coffee was amazing, which counts big point with me. Great atmosphere, friendly and conscientious staff.
It was National Pasta Day and Scopa was offering their pasta dishes for $10! It was a great value. My friend and I started with the Caesar Salad - we thoroughly enjoyed it - crispy romaine, with pancetta, croutons and a nice dressing. Our selected entrees were Spaghetti Carbonara and Tagliatelle with veal meatballs. Both entrees were tasty as usual.
