My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful evening meal during a visit to Albuquerque. We enjoyed the $50 special of two salads, two entres, a dessert and bottle of wine. Fabulous!

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.
