We chose Scampo to celebrate our 33rd anniversary. After having read all the good reviews we anticipated a wonderful evening. Loved the decor and the high energy level of the room. Hostess was friendly and gracious. When ordering our pre dinner cocktails, the waiter was not very knowledgeable regarding ingredient questions. We had one of the Mozzarella appetizers which was delicious. However the appetizer was presented to us, before the waiter provided plates and silverware, so we used our bread plates. He seemed a bit annoyed, but what else were we to do? I had the ravioli which was divine. My husband had the special which was lamb. The lamb portion was quite large, but most of it aside from the chop, was too chewy to enjoy. Both the dining room manager and Lydia were walking the room, but neither stopped by to check on our meals. We did go ahead and order dessert which was out of this world. A dense chocolate cake with a malted ice cream! Overall, the service was spotty. Our waiter had a very large table to deal with, and I'm not sure how many other tables he had. We waited a long time for our check and then a long time for it to be processed. Again, I mention that "managers" were on the floor, but no one came by our table to help out. I really don't know if we will return. We've been to Bergamot several times, (owned and run by Lydia's former protege), and he does it right! Most of all, I contacted the restaurant to mention the problems we experienced and no one has responded!

Food was tasty. We sat outside in the patio which was nice. When we sat down there was no wind but later on, it became very breezy. We ordered the pasta pomodoro and pasta with clams. We felt the pasta with clams at $28 and the martini at $14.50 was expensive.

We went to Scampo to celebrate Mother's Day. The service I found lacking with the servers showing no enthusiasm or personality. At the beginning of meal they bring bread sticks, which were delicious. We ended up waiting a while for the main course to be served. While waiting, we asked for some more to be brought. The small portion that was brought looked like left over pieces, broken, with some of them being burnt. The rabbit ordered was absolutely tasteless and portion of risotto which helped to add some flavor to the dish was so small that could only compliment a child, not an adult. Salmon that was ordered was tasteless as well. Prior to our dinner I was reading reviews about this place and the first one was about these bread sticks, so I was wondering if the restaurant management actually reads customer's review and makes some changes. I guess not and nobody cares about you. I wouldn't recommend this place. You can find plenty of French restaurants in Boston where the food and service is much better. I would visit Mistral any time and not waste time coming here.

delicious and creative in a very good way -- food is consistently inventive and excellent. park in the mgh garage next door and walk over -- much cheaper than the hotel rates.
