Owned and operated by Chef Glenn Scarpa and his wife Ashley, Scarpa’s Coastal “draws inspirations from the past while looking forward towards Florida’s coast.”

Some specials already have included: Squid ink Linguini with Grouper Medallions in Champagne, Shallot and Lobster Sauce; Blackened Red Snapper with Pineapple and Kimi Salsa; Sea Scallops with a Chardonnay Lemon Basil Reduction over Squid Ink Linguini and Crab Cakes. A full menu is located on their website as well as contact and reservations. Or of course you can call direct for reservation at 941/964-0806.
Not Your Typical Start Up
Glenn and Ashley are longtime visitors to Boca Grande and currently own and operate a sister restaurant, Scarpa’s Italian in Lakeland. In fact, this restaurant was recently featured on Emeril’s television show on the Food Network and Cooking channel. The show was called “Emeril’s Florida”, and Scarpa’s was highlighted as one of states best restaurants and “hidden gems”. You can expect the same attention to detail and wonderful dishes at Scarpa’s Coastal in Boca Grande.
