Nice decor, decent food, nice wine, great terrace in suitable weather. But the best thing are the customers at terrace and bar, great mix, nice atmosphere. The back room is pretty and QUIET! You can have a discussion at dinner!! Might be the only quiet restaurant room in New York.

This is a very pleasant and cozy little restaurant and the service was very good. We went quite late after an evening at the BAM and enjoyed the special of the night together with an excellent Pino Grigio.

I am on a mission to try different restaurants so last night my daughter and I chose Scopello. We ordered their salad special. It was a salad with blue cheese, apples and walnuts-simple- I had this kind of salad before but this was... perfection!...Oh so good:) It had to be the best salad that I have ever had- beautiful. I... More

A group of four of us, having just seen a performance at the BAM, were looking for an early dinner on Sunday evening and, among the many places in the area, chose Scopello. From the moment we walked in to a particularly indifferent (actually, downright icy) reception from the greeter, I had some misgivings. We waited for a while, despite... More

This restaurant was close to Theatre for a New Audience so we reserved dinner for 5 after attending a matinee. We were a bit early for our 5:30 reservations but they took us with no problem. The bar had a crowd but the dining area was still wide open. Service was good. The rolls were hot, soft, and delicious! Everyone... More

Wonderful dining experience!! We live in Italy and were visiting friends in Brooklyn and decided to try an "Italian restaurant". The food was wonderful and followed the important principals of the Italian cuisine. Appreciated also the originality put in some of the dishes. Strongly suggest polpette della mamma i.e. meatballs and the spaghetti alla puttanesca. Fabulous waiters and a great... More

I was looking for somewhere nice near BAM where our family of 9 could eat dinner prior to a performance; and really wanted to love Scopello after reading so many positive reviews. I made the reservation for 5:00 pm about one week in advance. About 30 minutes before we were scheduled to arrive, the restaurant called to confirm, but they... More

The restaurant overall is nice, small and romantic. A great place to be with your S.O. on a nice night. They serve mostly Sicilian food and you will not get regular Italian food as much which I didn't know there was a difference but I was told there was lol. The food was good, The drinks were good. I had... More

My wife and I stopped by because it is very close to BAM. We were seated right away and at first our service was slow but pick right up once our drinks arrived. It was a Wednesday night and a decent crowd in the bar area. Not a very intimate setting. It looked like they had some water problems in... More

I'm a regular at Scopello and always enjoy the food, service and drinks. It's a great local Front Greene BK spot to hang with friends. The drinks are great with affordable Happy Hour prices and the grilled calamari salad is my favorite.
