Fresh authentic Italian food, both ate specials of the night a risotto and chicken main. Both dishes were excellent and very filling. Squeezed in room to share a tiramisu. Fell in love with this desert it was the best version I have ever tasted. Personally we did not like at all the artwork on display and felt the restaurant needed... More

Had dinner here. Excellent menu choice including pizzas. Small selection for each course but we prefer this and usually find the marker of higher quality food. Calamari was superb, perfectly cooked. Homemade pasta and pork/beef ragu just delicious and reminded us of many meals in south Italy. Too full for a dessert. Wine list good and service friendly and efficient.... More

We had high expectations for this restaurant, the service was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive without intruding. Very happy with the presentation of this space. However the food was a huge letdown. Not one person of the seven at our table enjoyed the meal. Sounded fabulous, that's where it ended.

From the moment we walked in and were greeted by name (we had pre-booked) we felt welcome and that was a great way to start our dinner. Our waiter was superb, and never seemed rushed even though he was clearly very busy. There was a good wine list, with plenty of choices by the glass. We enjoyed an amuse buche... More

I would recommend this restaurant. 4 instead of 5 stars because the menu was limited. Still, we were able to find tasty seafood dishes. The staff was friendly, the restaurant was attractive and quite enough for dinner conversation.

My first visit was a team lunch at Scugnizzo, a set menu where I had ordered for fish of the day - salmon. It was perfectly cooked and was delicious. The next time I went with my partner, we ordered the prawn and zucchini ravioli , fried calamari with mayo. It was scrumptiously delicious and since then it's been a... More

Loved this restaurant. As soon as we walked in we were greeted warmly. The place has a charming atmosphere and I felt like I was at home. The food also was equally as pleasing. Absolutely delicious meals! I even ate calamari (I don't even like calamari, guess I do now). The artwork on the walls is wonderful to look at... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
