The pizza was burnt, lacked flavor and had a very small amount of cheese. Worst pizza I've had in years. Salads are a better option here. Service was quick, so good if you're short on time. Would NOT recommend Scarpas to friends or family.

Scraped had been one of my favorite restaurants over the years. That is why after having moved out of state that when I came back to visit Albuquerque so had to stop there. For whatever reason, the service needed up bringing all of the meals to the table and said the final dinner order would follow soon. Well after 10... More

This restaurant serves some exceptional pizzas as well as great salads. It's hard to make up you mind when looking at the menu because it all looks great and it is. I have had several different pizzas there and they are all great and it's nice to get a personal size to try out. The salads are great and they... More

The salad and pizza's are very tasty. Very close Italian traditional like. Not a bad choice in Albuquerque.

Great for Ladies who Lunch. The selection of salads on the lunch menu boggles the mind. No matter which you select, it arrives as more than on can eat! A large arrangement of tastes and textures! Each of us thought we ordered the best one. The service was fast and friendly. Pizzas were served to many tables around us and... More

Ask for Beth! Great personality and fast! We love the Margaritas pizza magnifecent. The house salad is delicious and perfect ice tea. Save your appetite for their special torte. Nothing like it!

A favorite with locals for brick-oven pizza, they have a decent selection of pizzas. The salad portions are enormous; one could easily split a half-order with another person. Service is usually fast and courteous. Ambience is ok, but it's a little loud during dinner most evenings.

Recommended this to a friend who hadn't been here so we went. I enjoyed my food, although my pizza wasn't as hot as it should have been, My friend didn't enjoy her margarita pizza-said it was average. What bothered us most was the lack of service. It was before 9 when we left and we were the only ones remaining(after... More

We ate at Scarpas for the first time last night and were not disappointed. There are many different types of wood fired pizza and we tried the primavera. It was good but lacking the grilled onions. It was served with a thick slice of raw tomato on each piece which we removed as it detracted from the pizza itself. The... More
