Scampo's fall menu is out, and it's a doozy. The mozzarella bar offerings have been beefed up to feature everything from beef carpaccio and parsnip chips to prosciutto, crisped pear and potato, and handmade quince preserve. The pastas are nuts: pumpkin gnocchietti with foie gras saute served on a pumpkin waffle, and lobster bolognese. With ingredients like this, it's no surprise that prices are high. Is it worth it? Check out the full menu below and make your decision.
