Unexpectedly high quality of food and pleasant, efficient service in a relaxed, contemporary environment. Table and bar seating options (best table for four is in the corner at far end next to bar area). Some parking available in forecourt. People in my group raved about...More

Great food in an out-of-the-way neighborhood location. In recent months they've been running a 3-course special for ~$25 on Mon-Thur which is good. Excellent cocktails. Note that you'll get very personal service early in the week when it's quiet, but Friday and Saturday night can...More

We visited Scutra again last week and everything was delicious, as usual. The staff was wonderful and really elevated Scutra above the other great food places around. Three of us ate two courses each and 7 drinks were consumed for $150. We thought it was...More

I have been an Arlington resident for many years but never been to Scutra until now. I had probably the best veal marsala ever. All dishes were tasty, creative and prepared with care. Staff is attentive. Definitely coming back.

On entering we were hit with a strange musty smell. The waiter was attentive, but seemed to be cosplaying "being a waiter". Salads were poorly dressed, main courses were very underwhelming. They seem to have some regulars who know what to order - the table...More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We believe the "musty smell" may have been the new paint that we did in the entrance over the weekend. Maybe mixed with the week of rain; the humidity made it more fragrant. Not sure,...More

Scutra is a jewel of a restaurant in our town. We don't here that often, but 3 or so times a year for special dinners. Given the high Level of service and delecatable cuisine it's a fair value as well. Plus the restaurant is fully...More

We went to Scutra for the first time. It was excellent! The restaurant is very nicely decorated and comfortable. The service is friendly, professional and attentive, without being invasive. All our appetizers and entrees were delicious. I would definitely recommend Scutra.

We've never had a bad meal at Scutra whether it's just the two or us or a group of eight. The menu changes frequently so get on their email list. It's a wonderful small spot with good service and great food. There is parking since...More
