After a day of wine tasting in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley, my wife and I recently headed to Scopa Restaurant, a tasty restaurant near the plaza in downtown Healdsburg. Evidently this tiny little establishment was formerly a barber shop. Watch for the sign that says “Barber Shop” and you’ve found Scopa.
The ambiance is casual and charming. We felt right at home as we were seated at a high top table by a friendly server.

I ordered the spaghetti, Tomasso’s Sugo Calabrese, made with both pork and beef sugo. This hearty dish came with an amazing sauce that I thoroughly enjoyed. The flavors were phenomenal. This is the ultimate comfort food and I devoured every last bite.
My wife had Nonna’s Chicken with sauteed greens and soft polenta. It was served in a little pot that kept the food hot. The chicken was moist and tender and incredibly delicious. It literally fell off the bone. The polenta was supper yummy. Another fabulous dish; we both agreed that we could eat this delicious spaghetti and chicken every day and be totally happy.
For dessert we shared the molten chocolate soufflé with vanilla creme anglaise. It was the perfect ending to a perfect meal. We loved everything about Scopa from beginning to end.
If you want tasty Italian food made with fresh local ingredients, Scopa is the place to go. It really is one of the very best Healdsburg restaurants. If I lived closer, I would be a regular. Unfortunately, I am a two to three hour drive away. Whenever we go to Healdsburg, this will be a must stop for us. We’ve been back again and again since our first visit. We are always happy with Scopa!
My next visit will be on a Wednesday when local winemakers pour wine from their own winery. Wine Maker Wednesday is a weekly event that lets consumers meet the people behind the wines we drink. It’s required for inclusion on their wine list. A great idea!
