Wow!

My wife and I went for an anniversary dinner. We had never heard of Scopri but it came up recently on a Trip Advisor search. Good reviews so gave it a try. It turned out to be one of the best meals we've had in Melbourne. When I made the booking I asked for a quieter table. On arrival we... read more

We booked a quiet table, but noise the room was generally muted wherever one sits (noise absorption panels on one wall). Service was helpful without being obtrusive and advice re choice spot on. My partner and I enjoyed a goat dish (his) and a pasta dish (mine) and shared a luscious made to order apple pastry with ice cream. we... More

The best part of this restaurant was the friendly staff and the nice ambiance. The food was good, but not "close your eyes and savour the bite" amazing. It was nice that it was away from the hustle and bustle of down town. To get to this place using public transportation. Take tram #96 and get off at stop 16... More

Hat a find! We have travelled and eaten a lot in Italy and this was a just a truly wonderful evening. Such a friendly bunch and a fantastic menu. As a seafood lover, the choices were great and the squid-ink pasta seafood dish was outstanding, but so was everything else. Starters were amazing, the mains were scrumptious, and the desserts...

We've been looking for a special Italian restaurant for some time and we've found it at Scopri. Small and cozy restaurant where the noise level doesn't overwhelm. Service friendly, helpful but not imposing. Selection of dishes good for pescatarians like us. They bake their own bread which you can also but to take home. Food was cooked to perfection and...

There are few benefits to being stuck in Melbourne traffic, but discovering this small fronted restaurant that sits in Nicholson St Carlton has been one of them. Don't go here if you are looking for spag bol or pizza ,as it is a classy, tasteful restaurant that still gives good value for money. It is not a large restaurant and... More

My husband and I visited Scopri for lunch and it was delightful. We shared the sashimi Cobia which was beautiful and fresh followed by the ravioli which was so light it melted in our mouth. So delicious. We continued with the King George Whiting which not only tasted exquisite the presentation was beautiful. Finally we finished with scrumptious desert. Service... More

What more could one ask for when visiting a restaurant! Lovely food, atmosphere and service. We loved the fact that the tables weren't cramped together. Our favourite place to sit is immediately inside to the right - a table away from other diners and opposite the bar - sort of like an alcove. Definitely worth a visit to enjoy genuine... More

This is a delicious restaurant. That - deliciousness - is it's defining feature; the rest - warm, professional service, excellent bread, superb coffee, pleasant environment - are all there as well, but it is outstanding food and superb wine that take the centre stage. Consider, for instance, wagiu air-cured beef (a richer equivalent of bresaola), followed by maltagliati with real... More

We have been to Scopri a number of times and will be back again. The food is excellent and matched by the staff who are enthusiastic and knowledgable about all aspects of the meals and even the wines that we brought.
