The new restaurant concept, which is named after “the place” in Italian, will be located at The Gulch. Scotto’s Fresco by Scotto has consistently been acclaimed for its high quality service and impeccable dishes since its opening in November 1993 – which are also qualities expected at the next Luogo.
Authentic Italian dishes such as aubergine and zucchini pie, grilled margherita pizza and veal and chicken bolognese will be on the menu. Other planned events are a weekend brunch, a weekday power lunch and a weekly Sunday dinner featuring Scotto’s popular Sunday sauce. A wide assortment of desserts as well as wine and cocktail lists will also be available.
Scotto is ready for guests to experience Luogo’s modern and welcoming environment. “We look forward to settling into Nashville’s exciting and dynamic dining scene.”
