Scampo at The Liberty Hotel
Conveniently located to MGH, TD Garden, The Liberty Hotel, Historic Beacon Hill and The North End and The West End of Boston. Lydia Shire, the James Beard award-winning chef and pioneer of Boston’s culinary scene is the Scampo Chef along with Executive Chef Simon Restrepo and Alex Pineda. She had opened her own restaurants, from the departed Biba, Pignoli, and Excelsior Chef Shire later took over the historic Locke-Ober, where once women weren’t allowed to eat in the downstairs dining room to Scampo, which debuted more than a decade ago in the Liberty Hotel.
A culinary destination created by legendary chef Lydia Shire and the Lyons Group. In Scampo, Shire’s reputation for defying tradition translates into Italian-inspired cuisine unrestrained by borders, drawing on flavors from the Mediterranean and Middle East.
Scampo translates to “escape” in Italian.

Great food and menu. Enjoyed the Scallops and Risotto dish and the lobster pizza too.
The food was amazing and the waiter was super nice.
We always seem to go to Scampo for our important celebrations and have never been disappointed. The service is wonderful the food is excellent and the restaurant very elegant.
Had an awesome experience at Scampo. Service was amazing and we sat at a high top at the end of the bar - best seat in the house! Highly recommended the cacio e Pepe. One of my new favorites can’t wait to go back!
Having been there several times, Scampo always delivers. The food is creative, delicious, and well prepared. Portions are good. menu is exciting. Service is excellent, with friendly, knowledgeable and attentive staff. An elegant restaurant with a pleasant casual vibe.
Wonderful meals based on waiter's recommendations. Always a pleasant experience!
My husband and I celebrated my birthday. The food was very good including dessert. We sat inside. It was nice out so the doors were open which led to a comfortable breeze entering the restaurant. The staff were kind and prompt.
The food was excellent. The 4 of us had different main dishes and all were good. The Salmon was better last time i ordered it on March 26th.
The service was impeccable Gina was a treasure!!
We dined outside. The night was chilly, the heaters helped a bit.
we shall return.
Excellent service and food
Absolutely amazing food! Each course was wonderful and tasted amazing! Can’t wait to go back
All exquisite as usual!
Was a Great Easter Lunch!!!
Attentive service, beautiful food
We were seated distanced from other diners, the service was very attentive, the dishes wonderful. It is a beautiful restaurant.
Excellent! Scampo is a top notch dining experience
Our waiter Brian was awesome! He made the night! He had great recommendations and was very knowledgeable - he was just wonderful!
Attentive and friendly staff! The lobster pizza is delicious.
Good food. Great server. Hostesses can be a little more attentive and kind. We had a 7:15 reservation, I called to let them know and they said no problem. When we arrived we waited about a half hour to get seated.
Absolutely hands down the best food and service we have had in a long time! Stellar! Can’t wait to go back!
Outstanding evening at The Liberty Hotel and Scampo. We enjoyed a cocktail prior to dinner upstairs in the lobby bar area. Wonderful service from Erica and then made our way to Scampo for dinner. Our waitress, Gina, was outstanding and the food scrumptious as always. We will be back!
The food a d the service was wonderful. Our waitress, Holly, was helpful and the consummate professional
Try the garlic bread - mind blowing!
The duck was phenomenal, good wine and cocktail list, not particularly cheap but certainly reasonably priced compared to similar restaurants in the area.
Brian, the waiter was a pleasure and extremely knowledgeable.
Great spot for a very nice meal. Have enjoyed Scampo 4-5 times since they opened and I have never been disappointed.
Great seafood/Italian restaurant at the Liberty Hotel!
The steak I ordered was greasy. I was not given a steak knife and it took quite a while to attract the waiter’s attention to get one.
He never refilled my water glass- and it’s not like it was a busy night
Excellent! First experience and will return if staying at the hotel.

The pizza came out cold, but was tasty. The pasta carbonara was really tasteless. Expected more
Food and service were great. Bit overpriced. They kept opening the door to the back of restaurant right behind us and it was freezing.
All of the dishes that we ordered were very good. The lobster pizza was delicious. Portions were nice sized. The seating was very comfortable and the service was great. Would definitely go back...
Cool ambiance, but as a table of 4 our dinners not served all together. We waited 5-10 minutes for 2 dinners to come. Sauce on plate was dried and food looked as it it has been sitting out. That said Sea bass was good, pasta good. We arrived restaurant 5 minutes early and were seated about 10 or 15 minutes late. I can chalk that up possibly to COVID restrictions? Our server was polite, helpful and professional, but the timing of food served apart like that was a major missing. The hotel is cool, as a former jail. I’d highly recommend a drink at the bar Clink, but I can’t say I’d recommend dinner at Scampo with other great restaurants in Boston. Could have just been an off night though.
Great service, great food, nice vibe. Only minor issue- the igloos were set up outside, so anytime the door opened for people heading outside you'd get a blast of cold air. However, in these times, it's understanding that some people want to dine outside and the restaurants are trying to survive with less occupancy. Overall, we had a nice night and will definitely return.
I will definitely come back.
Delicious as always
The staff is extremely attentive and well versed on the food and wine menus. The staf adheres to all the covid guidelines as well and it was an overall wonderful experience.
Great service , handle covid protocol very well, food was very good , service attentive and prompt
Seated at the bar ,
My husband and I both ordered the same steak and his tasted like a container of salt fell on it. When we asked for a replacement they said they ran out of steak which was really weird because it wasn’t close to closing and it was a weekend. He ultimately ended up with pasta and while we understand things happen it wasn’t really handled well. Would not go back.
Our first server was late in coming to us and did not tell us of specials or anything A second server came and took our drink order. Then he first one came back and again asked us for drinks. When they came out they were taken to the wrong table.
Fortunately Gina became our server after that and she was wonderful!
