A busy establishment that doesn't take reservations after 6pm apparently. However the staff were most helpful in suggesting a time frame for us to return (40 minutes later). This was the first of many things that the staff were friendly and helpful over. Monday night...More

Two of us each ordered a pizza. When our pizza came, they all looked huge, at least 12 inches in diameter. But NZ pizza uses very thin crest and uses little cheese and tiny amount of tomato sauce. We actually ate the whole pizza without...More

An enjoyable supper at Scopa. This busy little restaraunt offers a lovely selection of foods along with coffee and a special hot chocolate. Its well worth a visit and will be going back again when next in Wellington

How do you decide where to eat in Wellington? I was drawn into Scopa by the menu board advertising the $12 pasta of the day AND the delicious aroma wafting out into Cuba Mall. The pasta was delicious and there's a great selection of wines.
