Step into the cozy dining room of Scappanapoli, and you immediately feel at ease, as the walls are painted in warm tones, comfy cushions adorn the chairs, and magazines and newspapers rest on nearly every table. Grab a seat at one of the wooden tables under black and white photographs of famous Italian actors, and peruse the extensive menu, which features traditional Italian dishes that you won’t find in other run-of-the-mill Italian places in Ubud. Got questions? Not to fear—Napoli-born owner Piero and his wife Enung are always on hand to assist or simply engage you in warm and welcoming conversation.
The food at Scappanapoli has its roots in Southern Italian cuisine, so the menu features plenty of handmade pastas, wood-fired pizzas and vibrant dishes with fresh seafood, herbs and vegetables. Start your meal with the light Insalata di Polpo for tender chunks of octopus marinated in olive oil, lemon, parsley and garlic, or sample the Crocchete di Patate, which are crispy and golden on the outside and smooth and creamy with potato, mozzarella and ham on the inside. Once your appetite has been whetted, move on to the Gnocchi a’la Spaccanapoli with bacon, mushroom, zucchini, basil and cream, or the Penne e’ Siciliana with fried eggplant, house made tomato sauce and fresh basil.
All of the dishes at Scappanapoli are bursting with flavor, however, their true strength lies in the pizzas, which are made from scratch with fresh ingredients and cooked in an authentic wood-fired pizza oven. Favorites include the Vesuvius with tomato sauce, mozzarella, olives, pepperoni, Napoli chili oil and basil, or the Positano with a white base, mozzarella, provolone, rocket, shaved parmigiano and olive oil. Craving authentic Italian but don’t want to go out? Lucky for you, they do delivery too.
