I’m a tough critic but hard to find any negatives and the packed dining room before 7pm is proof they do it right.

A lovely place in downtown Easton. Our forth visit, we go there every time we are in the area. Upscale Italian, we ate early, 6 pm, weeknight, it was uncrowded, severive was excellent and the meal wonderful. The meal was not inexpensive but it was a good value.

great food, lovely furnishings. The pace of our meal was a little off: salad arrived just a few minutes after our cocktails, and lots of attention from the waiter during the first half of the meal, but then it took about 20 or more minutes after finishing the main meal to get our dessert menus, and have our ordered coffee served.

We went to Scossa for their risotto. The night we were there they had shrimp risotto and it was excellent. The server had waited on us before and provided excellent service. We had asked for a quiet booth and there was a fairly loud group in the main dining area, so the hostess suggested a table in the bar. This was the first time we dined in the bar area and it was quiet and great. We will definitely return.

Scossa is still our favorite restaurant in Easton. Has been for years. And if you do know Richard, the waiter, you’re missing out. He’s our fave and we ask for him every time. The grilled octopus and salmon tartar were to die for and my husband raved about the veal Parmesan!

We dined outside for a lovely brunch/lunch and the service, drinks, food and ambiance could not have been better. The only drawback was the pesky flies that seemed determined to invade once food was placed on the table. Our waiter was attentive without being obtrusive, the salads, including a special crab salad were positively outstanding.
Would highly recommend and will be back this fall!

Understated elegance is how I would describe Scossa. We were seated promptly and the food was excellent. I made a notation on our Open Table reservation about bringing a piece of cake out for my fiancee's birthday and they not only complied with my request, they took the cake off the total of our bill! We would definitely come back.

We had a lovely anniversary dinner at Scossa. The server was congenial and offered helpful guidance. She was attentive without being “too present”. The octopus appetizer was spectacular, as was the calamari. The eggplant Parmesan was outstanding. We decided to visit again during our short vacation! Scossa is a
MUST when in Easton. Bravissimo!

My husband and I were visiting from PA & chose this restaurant because I saw a saffron risotto w/chicken liver on the menu in the window the day before. Sadly, on the day we visited, that was not on the menu BUT recommended by our waiter, Richard, I had the most exquisite baby beef liver with onions!!! I guess he thought "well, here's someonewho likes liver." The tender liver was sliced into smallish strips & sautéed to perfection. Onions enhanced the dish but did not overwhelm it. Yes, you have to like liver, but I was in heaven. Simple steamed asparagus to accompany. I also had the cold pea soup appetizer - excellent (peas, potato celery - that's it!) The hubs was swooning over his sauteed scallops & mushrooms w/balsamic reduction. 4 large sweet scallops beautifully done. Dessert was peach sorbet served in a large frozen peach. Yes, we ate the peach too! Serving sizes were perfect. Dishes were simply prepared with minimal ingredients but, wow, it was great.
Our waiter Richard was delightful - ask to sit in his section. Tall handsome guy and he'll offer an opinion on a dish if you ask. He was great! After we finished the sorbet, he even sliced up my thawed peach so we could enjoy it. When we complimented the meal and thanked him for his suggestions, he deferred and said, "Well, it's the guy in the kitchen that makes it easy for me to make a recommendation ..."
The booths have high backs so you don't have to watch all the other diners. There were 2 groups of about 10 each seated near us so the noise level was a little higher that it probably would be, but it certainly did not bother us. We'll be back, I'm sure.

This is not only a restaurant for special occasions but for a lunch with friends or a quick bite at the bar as well. I have been here about twenty times and never fails to deliver. Want something delectable, try the steak tartare either as an appetizer or main course. Super delicious. And the Caesar Salad with white anchovies is excellent. And our waiter who has been there since it opened is a gem.

Everything about Scossa is fantastic. The Italian menu covers the bases in its authentic options. I loved my salmon cooked to my liking with mediterranean toppings and a choice of side veggies. My husband’s risotto was excellent as was my son’s lasagnette. Wines by the glass were tasty, opting for a pinot grigio from Alto Adige. Service was easy-going but attentive from Richard. It was quiet on a weeknight and the atmosphere pleasing.
