Squash risotto at Scusi
At Scusi, the space has some warmth and cheeky touches, including mismatched chairs and plates. The menu is pizza and pasta, plus lasagne, osso buco, and a nice selection of salumi and formaggi. All food is meant to be eaten family-style, and there's a nice wine-on-tap system.

From Scusi

Blue Plate Restaurant Company has been expanding and refining our definition of neighborhood restaurants for 19 years. Above all else, we value hospitality, achievement, community and relationships. Our mission: passionate hospitality & flavors fuel our community.

Every Blue Plate restaurant is different to match each neighborhood. But each has some of the same characteristics that keep our guests coming back: a delicious made-from-scratch menu created by great chefs that’s a little different in each place along with really friendly folks waiting on you – all in well-designed, architecturally edgy, yet casual settings that are an oasis for our guests.

Delicious, authentic; never stuffy or pretentious – that’s Scusi. Our shared-plate approach to the purity of Italian cuisine is for you to enjoy a variety of our favorite dishes. Every dish is made in-house by our talented chefs; from our pizzas, pastas, sauces & stocks, expect nothing but the freshest, most authentic ingredients.

Our unique, Italian focused wine list numbers over 50, with half our wines on tap by the mezzo and quartino. Our wine selections range from Sicily in the south to Veneto in the north, with a smattering of “Cal-Itals” & left coast favorites. We’ve organized our list by style and mood to aid your selection, or your server will be delighted to help pair your meal with something mouthwatering or sassy.

So make yourself at home and enjoy our wonderful selections. Buon Appetito!
