My friends and I were looking for a new brunch spot to round out the weekend. Loved it. There was a live band, unlimited bellini's, yummy healthy portions of food, quick service and good fun - all for under $20. We stayed for the whole brunch span loading up on bellini's and chatting away with our neighboring tables. Everyone seemed to know each other and that gave it a good feel. I've been there twice since then and plan to go again this weekend. See you there!

Pros: Delicious fine Italian food, lively bar, knowledgeable friendly waiters

Cons: not enough waiters on busy nights

.

I was at Scopello a few days ago for a dinner party and what a gorgeous place! The food was spectacular! We had grilled calamari, octopus with vegetables, and some short fresh pasta with mushrooms and sausage that was truly divine! The ravioli was some of the best I have ever tasted and after trying the organic lamb and the fish that were served, I knew I had found a new favorite. You are a treasure! I will be back.

Pros: Great food, decor, music and service

.

I wanted to experience this restaurant because of the positive reviews I saw on the internet, however, I was quite disappointed after eating there. For starters many dishes are not authentic Sicilian (as I am from Palermo) many of them come with the italian name and with a mixture of Italian ingridients, however, added by the owner's own imaginative touches which some may argue are bizarre. The basic bread is tasteless and the olive oil used of cheap quality. Again, if you think this is proper Sicilian cousine then you have all a lot too learn...I did not get a feeling of experiencing Scopello as the music theme was ''loungy'' and wanna-be trendy so it absorbed some of the decor more ''paesano'' feel...For all of you out there, here this is NYC you can do much better!

Pros: Smily staff

Cons: Overall high prices for average food quality nicely dressed

.

I've eaten at Scopello quite a few times now, and I have to say that they're probably the best Italian restaurant I've been to. It's interesting to see the changing specials-- to get a little taste of Sicily in many new dishes. The food is incredibly flavorful, and there is such a large variety, that everyone can find something they will love. They are vegetarian friendly as well, which is wonderful.The owner and manager are both friendly, and very charming with their Sicilian accents. One thing that strikes me is that there are so many regular customers-- the crew at Scopello know them by name, know what they drink, and know what they order. What's even better, though, is that those who are not yet regulars get treated as though they are or soon will be. The whole atmosphere of the place makes it seem like a close-knit family, and it's just an overall great experience to dine there.

Pros: Service, ambience, food

.

the drink specials at the bar are all fabulous, try the guidaloca, which is alot like a caipirinha but with white wine. the daily specials are delicious and fairly priced. some other favorites include the breaded chicken breast, the pesto gnocchi and the beef carpaccio. the desserts are good and the espresso is the way it should be, which is unusual in a city where they can't seem to make the espresso properly. one of the best restuarants in fort greene by far.

Pros: wine, dessert, mojitos

Cons: the food's a little bit too salty sometimes

.

If you haven't been to Scopello yet, do yourself a favor and try it soon. Don't save it for a special occasion: everything is right, including the prices, to have a truly enjoyable experience now and then, or more. I've been eating regularly at Scopello since it opened some four years ago. This is Italian food with a twist or two which really works. And I should know, being Italian myself. The place has great and relaxed atmosphere whereby you feel right at home. To begin, have one of the great carpaccios on the summer menu - - beef, octopus or tuna, they're all good, and so is the deliciously cytrusy arugula / artichoke / parmigiano salad. Follow with any of the day's special raviolis or other home made pasta dishes, and you won't be disappointed. Oh and the pesto gnocchi, please! If you are like me, though, you should not order the spaghetti without asking that they be truly "al dente", and mind you, the Carbonara sauce's a bit too salty. Entrees I really like include the lamb, tuna and chicken dishes, but everything else on the menu is deliciously prepared and attractively presented. Pair the food with one of the wines on the list and your experience will be complete. And don't forget to take time before or after dinner to enjoy the great atmoshere and lovely cocktails at this very popular bar.

Pros: Food and wine selections

Cons: can't think of one

Pros: food, service, value

Cons: bam days its too busy

.

I've been coming to Scopello for about two years. The food is always the best quality and their eggplant rolls and their filet mignon carpaccio are among my favorite antipasti in the whole of New York. Their pasta is consistently good and they have a wine list to satisfy even the pickiest connoisseurs palate. Another good thing is they give you a meal for your money. I'm a big guy so I like my plate full and at Scopello that is what you get. The hype about the celebrities is true too. I was at BAM for Sundance a couple of weeks ago and sat close to Steve Buscemi who was enjoying dinner there with a group of friends. If you are looking for one of the best places to eat in Brooklyn, Scopello is it.

My daughter and son-in-law took me for Mother's day. I do low carbs so no pasta but my meal turned out to be delicious anyway. My main course was marinated steak and steamed greens and it was excellent. The chicken my daughter ordered was also very good. Our server was nice and the restaurant was stylish and welcoming. I'll definitely be back.

Below average food from the tasteless bread to the average salad and average pasta. There must be a thousand italian restaurants better than this one.

I have to agree with the best that I?ve heard and read about Scopello. My friends and I have been eating here for the past 3 years and have always enjoyed it. I like the way the menu changes seasonally, keeping it fresh and surprising. The homemade pastas are the best! The black ravioli with crabmeat is so deliciously decadent and the eggplant ravioli or butternut squash ravioli suit my veggie cravings just fine. You can really taste the Sicilian olives in the extra virgin olive oil they serve with the warm homemade bread that greets you at your table. I even like to watch the crowd change, from the really busy nights when you could rub elbows with someone like Cate Blanchett at the bar as Rosie O?Donnell and her galpals are saying good night in the dining room, to the warm slower nights when you don?t have to wait for a table and can kick back with your drink and your friends. It?s all good at Scopello. Highly recommended.

delicious and inviting. food is always fresh and spices blend well in the pasta and fish dishes i usually order. good selection of regional wines too, and none too pricey. staff knows their food and everyone is pleasant, even funny. always fairly crowded when i've been. beautiful, easygoing spot. Recommended!

Overall, I found this delightful restaurant to be the perfect place for a romantic prelude, dinner after watching a movie at BAM, or causal meal and drinks with friends. One might describe the style of service as ?authentic European village' where the food and wine selections are pleasing and tasteful and the atmosphere is eclectic, lively, and warm.

After reading some of the positive reviews I'm wondering if I went to the same resturant as some of these other posters?
Have lived a block away for several years and decided to give scopello a try based on the positive reviews. I definately had a completely opposite experience then some of the other posters. There were probably, five other tables that nite and the service was still really bad. We waited quite a long time for every part of the meal, from placing our drink orders, to getting bread to getting our plates cleared. I wouldn't say anyone was rude but they certainly weren't friendly either. The food was just ok, total typical italian, I couldn't find anything special about it. Everything seemed to be lacking in flavor in a big way. Even though it's very convenient I can't think of any reason I'd go back to this place. I could make my own italian dinner at home and be more satisfied with the end product. Oh and by the way the decor is the same decor thats been in the place for the past four years when it was a prior eating establishment, also italian, nothing seems to go together and theres a very oddly placed tiffany lamp in one corner, with vines and stuff. i just don't get it..

My husband and I went to Scopello for the first time tonight with another couple to celebrate their engagement. The service was a disaster from beginning to end. First, they refused to give us a table against the wall even though many were available "in case they got a large party and had to push the tables together". When we asked to discuss it with the owner, they relented. We then spent the whole evening flagging people down for basic items, i.e., water, pepper, wine. Craziest of all, they felt compelled to tell us that if we wished to order the chocolate souffle, it would take 8 minutes (as though that were long). We did order it and it took nearly 20 minutes to come to us. The only thing we didn't have to ask and wait for was the bill. Having said all that about the service, the food was quite good especially for the modest prices. Unfortunately, the horrible service overshadowed the positive qualities of the restaurant. There are too many places in the Ft. Greene/Boerum Hill area to waste one's time here. Very disappointing.

Scopello is a wonderful neighborhood favorite. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the ambiance is warm and inviting. Most importantly, the food is great! They make delicious homemade pastas, fresh salads, seasonal specials, and a good Italian wine list.

Definitely recommended.

I dine at Scopello pretty offen, the food is good, guys are nice and the atmosfere is relaxed.
I like the warm colours, comfortable seats and the music.
a good portion of home made delicious pasta cost $ 12.00 the caserecci is my favorite,
get a nice glass of barbera with it and you are just fine.

If its good enough for Meryl Streep, its goodenough for me!
My black ravioli was superb and my glass of white Colosi I had with it
then 2 tables down I saw Ms. Streep eating with somebody.
That was the topper! When the food is good and the waiters and bartenders are nice
and you see someone so famous right near you it lets you know where you're eating is someplace special.

Pros: Celebrity watching, fresh authentic italian food

Cool spot...the food was pretty unusual for italian: sardines with pinenuts, but delicious. Modern but warm decor and equally good looking staff - the real Italian kind, black wavy hair, green eyes, blue eyes. Service was fair - could have been more attentive, but they were pretty crowded with people waiting, so that could be it. At least they were friendly, busy but with a smile and they didn't rush us from our table (I hate that!)...My friend and I shared a pasta that was melt in your mouth fresh and I had a special fish. Overall I'd say everything was tasty and creative. Not cheap, but less than I'd pay in Manhattan. Good looking crowd too. A keeper...

Could be a really nice restaurant if they sent the staff to charm school. Why be in business with the public if you don't like people? As a former waitress, I go out of my way to be polite to staff and never ask for special requests. I was treated like a criminal for not having a reservation, was told to sit in the bar, even though the dining room was empty, and then told maybe they could seat me in the dining room - to which I replied that my party had to make a train, and therefore would not be lingering. I thought that would be helpful information, but seemed to infuriate the manager? owner? jerk in charge? so we sat in the bar. Ate our food quickly - though freshly prepared, it was entirely uninspired - and left. The dining room was still empty. Thanks for nothing.

My friend and I went since Scopella was highly recommended by her friends.

Scopella was great.

I had the mushroom ravioli...fabulous. Our host... an ubberly cute, salt and pepper hair, aqua-eyed Italian named Fabrizzio (I apologize it that is misspelled)...met us at the door upon arrival and walked us out at the end of the night. Fab knew exactly what we wanted before we even asked. He recommended the dark chocalate moouse for dessert--it was great--and brought the perfect nightcap at the end of the meal. Will be back, often.

Sunday May 29 - I was in Fort Greene for Dance Africa festival and i went to Scopello
for a drink, attracted by the crowd that loocked like a group of friends, at the and of my first drink i was already part of it, with everybody talking with me like i was a regular.
I also order a delicius tuna carpaccio.
I only went for a drink but had such a good time, i ended up staying 4 hours!

Waiting for the day that the Downtown BK/Fort Greene dining scene is as good as Smith Street's, I was hopeful upon walking into the welcoming, colorful dining room but I wondered why there were only 3 tables seated in the entire restaurant. By the end of dinner, I realized why. The food was very good for Brooklyn but by the end of a 3 course dinner, my boyfriend and I were both sort of hungry. We would have liked to share a third entree, but then dinner would have been much too expensive, and probably better spent on a cab ride to a better restaurant. Note to the management - reduce your prices by 25%-30% and you can probably expect the place to fill up nightly.

My best friend and I lived in southern italy for 18 months and loved everything about it - the landscape, its warm, funny people, and incredibly delicious food. So when she started raving about this Italian place, Scopello, that had just opened up in her neighborhood, I knew I had to go. Scopello lives up to the hype. Gorgeous decor! The food was amazing, with all the distinct flavors, and spice combinations of the south. The service was careful and the owner is friendly and so funny. We had a great time. I've been several times since and often recommend it to friends.

My friends and i had diner at scopello,
after the theater.
We wanted to try this new joint in Fort Greene
that everybody is talking about.
Well, i was positively surprised, it's such a good looking place and the people were friendly with
no attitude at all. We had couple of bottles of wine
to complement a fantastic meal. Even my wife who is SO picky enjoyed herself.
We'll definitely go back. Viva Brooklyn!
