although quite a taxi ride from the center of town, this charming out-of-the-way restaurant is certainly worth a detour. Amazing home made bread with extra virgin olive oil could have been an entrée by itself. Beautiful pastas, wonderful main courses and a charming owner made for a memorable evening. I only wish it was closer to Southern California!

Three of us ate a fabulous lunch. Having advised the waitress about our time constraints, service was efficient and effective. The menu is great, not just the normal stand-bys but interesting well prepared food. Brains were delicious, oysters fresh simple and excellent. The pasta with a partridge based sauce was rich and flavoursome. Reports on steak and goat were most... More

We are regulars at Scopri and had a fine meal there again last night for a friends birthday in the upstairs private dining room with 12 guests. The food and service was excellent. Try the baby kid (goat) it melts in the mouth. The tuna carparcio was excellent rich but refreshing as a starter All guests had a great night... More

We found the restaurant by accident as it is not in a main restaurant area; the food, wine list and service were all excellent. My wife and I shared an starter and only planned to have a main meal each but every dish was so good that we had to try a desert; we were not disappointed. We thoroughly recommend... More

This was a return visit and was just as good as on the previous occasions! The calamari fritto starters and squid ink pasta marinara as mains were absolutely delicious accompanied by a great Pinot Grigiot. This restaurant is very handily located in Nicholson Street on the way out of the city and is an absolute treat! The ambience is unpretentious... More
