Our waiter, Mark, was excellent. We had eggplant Parmesan and scallops. Excellent! Started off with scusa’s garlic bread—topped w tomatoes and basil—cheesy and wonderful! Highly recommend this restaurant!

My husband & I had a lovely dinner here. Great atmosphere. Excellent service. Excellent food. One thing to note is the portions are generous. We wish we had split an entree. I had the garlic soup and it was fabulous.
