About Antonia Lofaso

Inspired by her Italian-American heritage, Antonia Lofaso opened Scopa – Italian Roots in 2013, which was immediately well received and Black Market Liquor Bar. Her interpretation of old-school Italian is hailed as one of the most compelling restaurants for Italian cooking in Los Angeles. Patrons describe Scopa as an essential neighborhood staple where she consistently serves food that is inviting, authentic, and undeniably satiating.
