At Scopello, which is named after a small village in Sicily, authentic southern-Italian dishes bestow taste buds with the flavors of homemade pasta, imported Italian spices, and local produce. Candlelight bounces off coral walls, casting a warm glow on dining duos and barbershop-less quartets as they share Sicilian favorites from far-reaching corners of the menu.
Flood palates with the flavors of antipasto misto, a checkerboard of chilled deli meats and cheeses holding court with briny olives and eggplant caponata. Woven with hunks of hand-crafted sweet sausage, the caserecce con sugo di funghi e salsiccia backstrokes through a savory mushroom ragu, clinging to rafts of short pasta like a squid clings to a buoy at night. Entrees sate hearty appetites and include tender, red-wine-braised Black Angus short ribs lolling atop a creamy bed of risotto, and bites of free-range birds painted with roasted garlic, rosemary, and balsamic vinegar. The curtain descends on dinner as a sweet spotlight illuminates tangy scoops of limoncello gelato or vanilla panna cotta with strawberry sauce.
