We used to work near this restaurant, and have tried on a few occasions to get a booking (usually at the last moment!) with no luck. We tried for last Friday evening and scored a berth for 8.30pm. It was worth the wait. Scopri is well rated in a town were food is king, there is masses of competition. It... More

Eating our way though the top ten restaurants in Melbourne, Scorpi is on the list. This Italian restaurant is at the top of the tree with excellent produce sympathetically and deliciously prepared. The ambience is beautifully understated and the service impeccable. My lambs brains and carpaccio of King fish was fantastic. The goat is amazing as it the lamb and... More

The service was warm, friendly and informative. The owner Anthony personally welcomed us and stopped to chat with us throughout our evening. Our waiter Patrich explained the menu and specials...

We shared a beautiful evening with friends at Scopri last night. The service was sublime. Gracious, knowledgeable, unobtrusive and more than competent. The menu was tantalising. So hard to make a choice. Stuffed zucchini flowers, cauliflower salad, grilled King george whiting, home made pasta, brains on an egg salad. We tried and lived all that and more. Plus dessert. We...

We ventured across the river last night to re-visit one of Melbourne's best Italian restaurants, SCOPRI - and were not disappointed. Established by the talented duo Scutella & Foley and fuelled by chef Caccioppoli, classical regional Italian dishes are their forte. The welcoming venue was fully booked on a sultry mid-week night and many of the diners were definitely 'in... More

Returning to Melbourne (from the Gold Coast) and as the guest of a gastronome and lover of everything Italian, I knew that I was in for something quite special at Scopri. The first noticeable thing was the familiarity of fellow diners...as many were regulars returning for yet another indulgence of relaxed yet professional dining. The staff here are not uni... More
