If you’ve been following me for a few years now, you know Italian food is in my Top 5 favorite cuisine types, so I was REALLY looking forward to trying this place. While I never had the opportunity to dine at their old location, this one is absolutely beautiful! The dining room has a modern, yet rustic Italian feel and it’s dimly lit which creates a very romantic date night experience unlike any other restaurant I’ve seen around Vero. If you prefer to dine al fresco, you have two choices. The first choice is a patio directly attached to the building which has a retractable roof and side panels that can be closed and air conditioned in inclement weather, or with the increased demand for outdoor dining, the second option is their newest expansion directly behind the first patio located under the oaks. I decided to dine inside on my first visit to get the full experience. Mikey, a long time Scampi Grill employee took care of us for the evening. Chef Alex sent out several dishes for us to enjoy, and I must say, this is some of the best Italian food I’ve ever tasted. Everything was freshly prepared and so full of flavor! I’m already counting the days until my next visit!
Now let’s dive right in and see what this place has to offer and what I had to eat!
