This is a very pleasant and cozy little restaurant and the service was very good. We went quite late after an evening at the BAM and enjoyed the special of the night together with an excellent Pino Grigio.

I'm a regular at Scopello and always enjoy the food, service and drinks. It's a great local Front Greene BK spot to hang with friends. The drinks are great with affordable Happy Hour prices and the grilled calamari salad is my favorite.
