Famous for its rich, Italian style hot chocolate thick enough to eat with a spoon; Scopa is a well-known spot for Wellington locals and visitors alike. Situated in the heart of Cuba Street, and hailed as the original pizzeria, 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 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.  Staying true to their italian roots, Scopa Pizzeria is grounded in classic italian style pizza but is certainly not defined by it. 

Scopa caters to a diverse range of patrons. Priding itself on its friendly, efficient and energetic service; this is the perfect place to bring the family, to catch up with friends, cosy up to a partner, or to people watch and soak in the hustle and bustle of the most diverse street in Wellington.

If there is a short wait for a table, they encourage you to settle down at the bar and watch in marvel as the pizzas fly. As they say themselves "we’re a place for the people and the people want pizza." Can't argue with that.

The service at Hawthorn Lounge is impeccable, in the sense that they're attentive without being overbearing. It's novel enough to make you realise that most places have forgotten the hospitable out of hospitality.
