We visit Easton once a year and, while we like trying new restaurants, we always make sure we have dinner at Scossa. Good food, good service, good drinks and wine selection, and nice atmosphere.

Valentines Dinner out of town.

Seated promptly and service was incredibly quick. Everyone had a purpose and it was done efficiently.

Food lacked flavor and wasn’t prepared properly. Risotto was watery and over cooked. Tuna tar tar wasn’t very cold and flavorless. The beef carpaccio was similar in taste.

Very much enjoyed our time at Scossa. We had driven in from out of town for a special dinner having had no prior experience. The owner and staff were extremely gracious and the the food was incredible. The calamari and the spaghetti were perfect- they make all of their gluten pastas in house. We will return.

The pasta and risotto are excellent. In this case, we had the gnocchi and a custom green peas and shrimp risotto. Service was good and our seating was in a quiet booth as requested. Our favorite Italian restaurant on the Eastern Shore (Delmarva).

The food was excellent as well as the service. I had reserved a table for two using Open Table. We arrived early so we could have drinks at the bar. Our reservation time was for 7:00 at which time we discovered our table had been given to someone else. It was a busy Saturday night, yet we still expected to have our table in the dining room. We ended up having dinner at a high top in the bar area and still had a wonderful meal. It seemed to be less noisy where we ended up eating rather than the dining area anyway. This is one of our favorite restaurants in town, and will continue coming here. Just a little disappointed about the seating mixup.

My endive salad was super bland ! It’s usually very good ! Also my steak was not very good either ! They put a pesto type sauce on top ! Not good ! It would have been better without! My son ‘s veal scallopini was very tough ! He usually finishes all of his meals and this dish he did not ! We will not be going back for a very long time !!

What a gem this restaurant is. A busy Saturday night with all tables filled but it as quiet and relaxed. The serving staff was just what you'd expect in a fine restaurant but somehow the quality of service eludes the restaurants in Annapolis just 45 minutes east on the Western Shore. Unhurried, removed plates after everyone was done, friendly and conversant without being overly chummy
Food was incredible. Setting very nice and very well maintained. We had a number of people recommend Scossa and it's not difficult to see why.

Scossa is one of our favorite restaurants in Easton. Consistently good food and service. Great place to sit at the bar and eat. They always seem to have a different "dinner special" that is outstanding. Would highly recommend.

Our waiter was Quintus and he was simply excellent. He read our Open Table notes before he came over and knew that we liked Pinot Noir wine. He gave us an excellent recommendation for the food (halibut with lemon/caper sauce) and the wine and it was a delightful experience. Highly recommend this restaurant if you have never been.

The Prix Fixe Menu $40 listed online, we were told by our waiter only at lunch, though it is listed on the website dinner menu.
I posted on Open Table a request for a certain table. No mention of it when we checked. They could have said that it was previously reserved.

Otherwise dinner was fine. The avocado endive salad was delicious. We ordered the liver which was tasty, but a little over cooked. This was after we broached the cooking temp subject with our waiter.

We generally like Scossa, we are locals, just a few glitches this time.

We loved this restaurant. From the service, to the cocktails, to the food. We will be back. All was fantastic. We started with the cheese plate, Caesar salad and the spinach and pear salad. All were wonderful. We then had salmon, veal, risotto (lobster and duck ones) and lobster with whole wheat pasta. All were delicious and everyone was satisfied. For dessert we had tiramisu, peach sorbet and apple strudel. Awesome.

Scossa was an excellent restaurant for our group of 6! Three generations age 20, 50 and 80, some meat eaters, some not — we all were pleased with our meal choices. The timing of the service was perfect - no long waits, but also no feeling of being rushed. We stayed for dessert and coffee (unusual for us), and again, all dessert choices were excellent. We would definitely return in the future.

We enjoyed our meal here very much. Three of us ordered pasta dishes and the 4th ordered a fish dish.
All were delicious. Wine is reasonably priced. Nice cocktails too although we skipped those this time. Excellent service. We often see the same staff people -- I think low staff turnover is one of the reasons the service is so good. Its a very pretty place -- nice for a relaxing meal.

We've been here twice before and have had great experiences, so we were looking forward to a nice lunch. The food was excellent as usual but the service was among the worst we've ever had anywhere. It was like the waiter was intentionally snubbing us. Once he took our order he never stopped by the table again except to pick up the check (which someone else delivered). He was extremely talkative to table next to us (maybe he knew them ?) but ignored many other tables. What made it really strange is that our table was near the wait station so he had to repeatedly walk right by us. It was like he was purposely trying to avoid eye contact with us. I suspect he was just a bad waiter so we're inclined to try them again but it will be awhile. There are a lot of other excellent options in the Easton/St. Michaels/Cambridge area.
