Food was good but not extraordinary for a fine-labelled restaurant. The waitress forgot a desert, and was not checking on us that often.

Service was slow. I do realize that it was a weekend night, but it took a while to be addressed and even offered a drink. We had to ask if there were specials after our server asked to take our order. Both of us wound up ordering specials once we found out about them. Long time for drinks to arrive. Server said the bar was backed up. Could see the bar from where we were sitting and didn't notice anything unusual about why we were waiting for drinks. Food was good not great. A little under-seasoned for our taste. Braised beef ravioli was excellent!

A lovely meal with some nice innovative dishes, such as roasted baby corn, garlic, thyme and sun dried tomato salad.

The centers of our arancini were cold and the saltimbocca was swimming in Marsala that tasted more like soy sauce. The wine list was good, though, and my husband enjoyed his steak.

Limited menu. No healthy choices. Almost every fish dish had crab and I am allergic to crab. I think 4 dishes had crab and could not be made without. Waitress had no ideas which brands of liquor they carried and didn't want to walk over to bar to find out. Didn't ask us when read ran out if we wanted more

The drinks were not good, felt like the ice was watery and they were cheap on the amount of liquor in the drinks.

From Our Editors

It's fitting that, from the outside, Scutra's brick-faced building looks like a family home that's been turned into a neighborhood restaurant. When you enter the cozy space—which is decorated in warm yellow and orange tones—you might see chef Didier Baugniet asking for diners' thoughts on the WiAnno oysters with parmesan-lemon-pepper butter or one of the many dishes from the constantly changing menu. Elsewhere in the welcoming, dinner-only venue, you might see patrons turning in their comfy, woven-back chairs to talk to Baugniet's wife and partner, Cesidia Cedrone, asking for recommendations from the thoughtfully curated wine list, which features varietals from all over the globe.

The international wines paired with European dishes and hospitality help diners feel like they’re thousands of miles away, dining in a cozy bistro while watching men kick a ball around in a game oddly dubbed football despite its lack of resemblance to the classic American pastime. The restaurant’s food—scallop schnitzel with sake butter, beef short-rib gnocchi, and salmon grape leaves—all made with fresh, local ingredients, is a nod to the delicious offerings of multiple countries. Restaurant manager Louie Paparella even said in a 2009 article in the Arlington Advocate, "Our Belgian chef has worked around the world and picked up little culinary traits and we use it all."
