We went in for appetizers and drinks. After sitting for 30 minutes while the bartender ignored us and stocked her bar, we walked out. We later called management to let them know our experience with their business. The owner was not interested in hearing our story and told us to "F... off"! He also said we could go to hell! After telling our story to many friends, we were told that the food was generally horrible and they didn't eat there anymore. We will never go back and we hope this post helps others not waste their time and money!

This is the first time I am writing a review for this wonderful restaurant that I frequently have been to. The food is great. I must say the ravioli remind me of my grandmother's homemade ravioli. The service is warm and friendly. We usually go for special occasions and large celebrations.

Living in Boulder Creek, I've had several opportunities to give Scopazzi's a fair shot. The first time, I took a visiting relative there. The food tasted mediocre and was overpriced, but the clincher was the awful digestive reaction I had for the remainder of the evening. I decided that Scopazzi's wasn't worth the visit. The second time, I was invited to a close friend's engagement party. I couldn't decline on account of the location, so I went and ate solidly mediocre fare. Again, I wound up on the toilet for the rest of the night. The third time, my son was invited to a neighbor's child's birthday party, and was obligated to go on account of the closeness of our children. This time, the food actually tasted pretty good, however it turned out that the entire party wound up with horrible food poisoning. I didn't wind up in the bathroom, that night... both I and my son wound up in the hospital hooked up to an IV due to the dehydration. So... eat here at your own risk.

Scopazzi's is a charming historic restaurant with great food and service. The Caesar salad prepared at your table is a must. We usually order a veal dish and also love the seafood and pasta. Don't worry about dessert--the portions are so large you won't be able to eat dessert! The warm redwood interior and stained glass bring back memories of a simpler era. You can dress up if you like, but you'll be treated well no matter what your attire.

Amazing restaurant! It is stylish with high quality and very delicious food. Not cheap, but it's worth it!

Have gone to Scopazzi's a quite a few times since moving to the area two months ago. Last week we suggested they put a dark chocolate cherry cake on their menu... and to our surprise, they had made one special for us when we went back there tonight! All the meals have been excellent and the service superb.

I had some good times and good food at Scopazzi’s, but last Sunday was very disappointing. The Spinach Salad for two is only good if you get one of the original waiters, anyone else ruins it and then we had a long wait to receive cold food. I was there Friday before and had no issues. Maybe Sunday is a bad day to go.

My family has been going to Scopazzi's for 20 years. We live in Boulder Creek and with the exception of La Bruschetta in Felton, there isn't a finer restaurant in the San Lorenzo Valley. We enjoy the ambiance and the friendliness of the service staff. The food is usually very well prepared though, as is the case with most restaurants, we have had a few clunkers over the years. But we have never, not once, had any family member nor guest experience any stomach discomfort nor food-related illness as a reuslt of dining at Scopazzi's. I would advise trying to get a table by the fire place on cold evenings as the building is old and large and can be chilly on cold nights.. The decor is sort of outdated but there is a comfort knowing that the restaurant has been in continuous business (see their 1957 menu displayed in the entrance, the prices will floor you) for so many years. For starters I highly recommend the Caesar Salad which is prepared table side. Simply one of the best Caesars one will get anywhere. The soups are average though the everyday Minestrone is pretty good. The rest of the menu is somewhat unimaginative - New York Steak, Veal Parm, etc - but most dishes are competently prepared with large enough portions to satisfy most appetites. The specials can be hit or miss with seasoning being the main culprit when the dish goes awry. But, all it all, I tend to go with them as I've eaten most every regular menu item. Desserts are above average and I would recommend the Cherries Jubilee which, like the Caesar, is prepared at the table. Scopazzis doesn't pretend to be a destination restaurant. The food is above average but not anything that is going to win any culinary awards. The prices are perhaps a dollar or two high per dish but there is no other upscale restaurant within 10 miles and so it's hugely convenient for those of us who live in SLV. I would recommend w/o reservation (pun intended) and have repeated numerous times.
