CloverEats: Skappo’s in New Haven

Fig salad

We walked past Skappo a few times before deciding to try it out. The restaurant is run by a family; at one point, Mama, frequently referred to on Yelp, came out and talked with everyone; she was so welcoming and warm! Everything we ate was great, from the figs to the dark rice. Unfortunately, they were waiting for a shipment of mozzarella from Italy, so I couldn’t get my go-to caprese dish. The dark rice was certainly interesting, and lent a more complex flavor than regular rice would have. Certainly a fantastic spot for a meal, and again, a great, warm and welcoming atmosphere! Check them out on Yelp or at their website!
