Had dinner here when visiting friends. Wonderful menu selection. We all enjoyed our meals (the portions were very generous) and the warm rolls were delicious! Staff was friendly and the place was quiet so allowed for good conversation. Enjoyed our specialty martinis as well!

Meeting friends and looking for somewhere new to go. Remembered Scapa which was convenient for all of us. "Private" room was perfect to catch up. Excellent service. Lots of choices. Everyone really enjoyed dinner with great leftovers. Not too crowded on a Thursday night - have to remember it's there and get the word out. Good choice!

I bought a groupon for this restaurant and went with my husband for dinner. We ordered the grilled calamari for appetizer. The portion is big but it is a little too salty for my taste. I imagine that it will go well with beer. For the main dishes, my husband ordered the skirt steak which is cooked perfectly, surprisingly tender.... More

We found Scapa thru a groupon coupon. Our group of 4 were impressed with Scapa nestled in a quaint town. Personable staff & great menu selections. The Risotto was outstanding. Would definately recommend this restaurant and go back again.

After reading many positive reviews about this restaurant, me and my husband went there for dinner.. We had no reservation, so we got seats next to the bar. The restaurant looks classy and have nice decor with full bar. Many options in menu and we opted for Vodka chicken thin crust pizza as the name sounds unique. For drinks they... More

Second time we went and it was just as average as it was the first time. Happened into the night of half price appetizers so we decided to graze. The squash risotto was decent (it came out as a mistake but we were given it to try). The scallop risotto was so salty it was not edible. The shrimp with... More

If you unfortunately ever have need to organize a meal for family and friends after a funeral service Scapa will provide a very professional lunch for you. The restaurant opened for our group at lunchtime, even though they do not open for the public. The staff was exceptional as was the food. I will return for dinner on better circumstances.

Scapa is a delightful Italian restaurant conveniently located in downtown Clarendon Hills. During our two visits street parking seems to be readily available. Staff is friendly and helpful and honored our request for one of their "cabins" which are tables for four that are semi enclosed on all four sides by floor to ceiling draperies. The drapes provide significant insulation... More
