Positive feedback for everything. We had a quick pizza margherita for lunch, which was very good, and for just 8$ thanks to the special deal on tuesday. Just in the middle of the city, the restaurant is small but modern. Friendly staff...what else?

The food is very good the pizza and spagetti with meatballs were excellent. Went about 6:00 and a little wait to be seated. Good and attentive service.

I visited this cafe after my morning run. I ordered scramble eggs on toast and hot chocolate. The hot chocolate was different from other cafe. It was thick and not too sweet. Was I a weirdo? I dipped my bread in the hot chocolate. They matched perfectly.

There was nothing specifically wrong with this cafe, it was just sort of plain and average. Coffee was fine and all the food was ok, but with great options all around on Cuba St, I wouldn't go back here specifically.

Busy evening and they do not do reservations hence risk there is some waiting. Had antipasto as starter with some fried veggies, unusual but ok. As it was Valentine lots of takeaways hence we needed to wait very long for pizzas. Overall ok but did not blow my mind

I think the best thing about this place is the speciality hot chocolate fantastic liquid chocolate. The brunch menus are a bit plain and it takes a while to decide. Atmosphere is nice, about $65 for brunch and coffees for two people making it a bit pricey.

We ate at Scopa Caffe while on a NZ Xmas cruise - we had two of their gourmet pizzas and they were outstanding. Very fresh ingredients and unlike many Italian restaurants, came to our table looking (and tasting) like a culinary masterpiece. VERY small place, so you may have to wait at the bar or come back after some shopping... More

I've been coming here for mid week dinners and special occasions alike since Scopa opened many years ago, and it is always fantastic. The service, the food, the tiramisu and the wine list - all thumbs up. Do bear in mind you can't book unless you're a group bigger than 5+, and it's busy, all the time! Totally pleasant to... More
