Everyone of us was quite happy with our meal. We were four people. One ordered lamb, one had beef, one the haddock, I had the fish menu - rice balls for first course was excellent with a very tasty tomato sauce. My fish, filled trout was somewhat overcooked. The desserts were creative and very good. We liked the nice atmosphere... More

We went to Scutra for the first time. It was excellent! The restaurant is very nicely decorated and comfortable. The service is friendly, professional and attentive, without being invasive. All our appetizers and entrees were delicious. I would definitely recommend Scutra.

We've never had a bad meal at Scutra whether it's just the two or us or a group of eight. The menu changes frequently so get on their email list. It's a wonderful small spot with good service and great food. There is parking since it's not on Mass Ave.

Last weekend my finance and I went to Scutra for dinner. Its a bit confusing from the street because its in the same parking lot as an insurance company but don't let that fool you. There was plenty of parking and once inside the restaurant has a quaint but modern feel. We were seated at a well lit booth and... More

Saturday evening, all tables filled, folks waiting for bar seating. Our first visit to Scutra, my husband and I were smart to make a reservation. What a wonderful meal: a shared warm spinach salad, crusted salmon, a tower of lightly breaded cod resting on butternut squash risotto and a zucchini fritter, followed by an amazing lemon cheese cinnamon tortilla doused...

We really enjoy Scutra, it's our favorite restaurant in the area. It's simply has great food, great beer and great people. We’ve tried a number of dishes and find myself defaulting to the arancinis and the parmesan crusted chicken. But have also really enjoyed pork belly meatloaf, and short rib ravioli. I also really appreciate their selection of Belgian beers.... More

Our experience could not have been better. The décor is pleasantly modern, with a few traditional touches. We were treated like welcome guests, samples of wine were offered, and the menu was discussed intelligently. My husband and I split one appetizer and one main course, which is sometimes restaurants frown upon--not here! We had a lobster ravioli with a creamy... More

Elegant food, great after dinner coffee. My only complaint is that the restaurant is a little noisy for my taste since they put in the bar. Still, a lovely restaurant where I would take guests without hesitation.

I like to see neighborhood restaurants flourish, especially if they are working hard in the right ways. So I am sorry I cannot be more enthusiastic in this review. However, based on our experience last night, Scutra has improved much since we were there over ten years ago. The ambiance of the restaurant is quite lovely - not quiet cozy,... More
