We live just around the corner from Scopa and have been meaning to try it forever. Well, finally we did and we can honestly say, we have found our neighborhood favorite! Everything from the welcome, to the service,
to the food was five stars in my book! The wine by the glass selection is great with many choices to fit any taste and price point. The full bar makes one awesome margarita as well! We started with the lightly fried squash blossoms stuffed with ricotta. Heaven
in every bite! Order two or you'll be craving more all night! The rice ball stuffed with peas and meat, served with a lovely tomato sauce and grilled bread was one of my favorite dishes! If you love crunchy and soft all at the same time, this will be
your favorite dish too. The linguini and clams in the light garlic sauce is rich and flavorful. The star of the night was the meatball hero. Piled with meat and cheese, it was filling and delicious. For dessert we enjoyed the hot, fresh, homemade donuts with
powdered sugar. Needless to say, we can't wait to go back!
