I had the hand rolled maccheroncini with Tuscan style veal and pork ragu which was so tasty and the Capretto Rustico (Goat) which was my... read more

We dined at Scopri as a couple last weekend and be back on their doorstep this weekend if we lived in Melbourne. Between us we tried a variety of dishes including oysters, pasta, main meats, and desert. All were well cooked and delicious. The servings were of a generous size too. I had the rabbit special and was overwhelmed by... More

Evening midweek meal here. Cosy restaurant with very pleasant ambience. Enticing general menu options and great sounding specials. Excellent roulade starter. Mains were genuine homestyle Italian plates - superb goat dish and equally good partridge pappardelle. Genuinely interested and attentive waiting staff - made for a great dining experience.

A welcoming small and cozy restaurant on a cold night. The menu strays from the traditional Italian and extends to very tasty and interesting dishes. My whitebait starter with a couple of Sydney Rock oysters was very good indeed as was the John Dory that followed. My companions were also happy with their choices. There was wide range of dishes....

To reiterate other reviews: the food and service is excellent! Everything we tried was 'melt-your-mouth' absolutely delicious! The wine list was explained and the choices complemented the meal. The dessert suggestion for that day was also amazing and I hope it's there for our next visit.
