Situated in the heart of Cuba Street, whether you’re in need of comfort food or a spot to impress your date, here you can satisfy your cravings and crushes alike.

Scopa is a Bresolin brothers’ local eatery, serving freshly made pasta and hand pushed pizza that has a softly lit, intimate atmosphere that’s also fun and lively. It offers both large tables for groups and smaller ones for those in need of a good catch up. A great option for both contemporary and classic Italian fare, or a late-night chocolate hit, this little landmark has you covered.
