We were a little disappointed in our meal here in December. The venue was smallish but clean and pleasant with white table cloths and terrific service. For me the food was just average, in fact I didn't enjoy my pasta main course which I found a little rubbery in consistency. My partner really like his fish. The complimentary bread had... More

A friend and i spent a fantastic Friday afternoon eating and drinking at Scopri. The food and service are exceptional, and the possibility of bringing your own wine sets it off ($15 corkage). The oysters were freshly shucked, salty and sweet The brains were perfectly cooked The slow cooked beef shin ragu was complex and showed the detail that the... More

Had lunch at Scopri today with 3 work colleagues. We had the "feed the table" choice where they bring you 3 different entrees and 3 different mains (small portions of each). The food was outstanding. I eat out a lot for work and I'm also from Italian background and can say that this place is true Italian food served by... More

My Favourite for the day. - Kid... More

Returning from Hong Kong to see family we simply had to dine at our favourite Melbourne restaurant. The incredible Service, perfect location, outstanding value and of course excellent food choices. This is a must visit. Thank you Alison and Anthony for making another night at Scopri memorable. See you soon.

I found this restaurant after searching for the 10 best restaurants in Melbourne, and was not disappointed. We decided to celebrate our anniversary with a lunch on the 19th. December. The restaurant is fairly small with a very good and busy atmosphere. We started with a glass of bubbly followed by one of our own special chardonnay, and there is... More

If your looking for traditional high quality Italian fare this is the place. Beautiful hand made ravioli and slow cooked goat. Very easy number 96 tram ride from city no more than 10 minutes travel catch it on Bourke Street.
