    The food was wonderful, especially my oso bucco. The servers were very friendly and helpful. It was a trifle noisy and mildly difficult to have intimate conversation, but all in all we enjoyed our meal immensely.

    The fish special didn't have much flavor. The panceta wrapped mozzarella was a bit salty and way too much pesto sauce. We were being charged for a full bottle of wine, when I only had one glass...check your bill.

    Great service, menu options. I had the special pan fried Sole red garlic mashed. No much sole but lots of potatoes. For $35 not justified. Had a nice end table with an open window which was great for fresh air.

    We love Scusas. Everytime we are in the area we go here. We always order the same thing, the seafood fettuccine, and delicious salad with blue cheese.

    Took 3 tries to get the entree I ordered. Then it was overdone and over sauced.
