By complete luck we were searching for a BYO Italian near Carlton over Easter. Having dined at the published restaurants in Melbourne we found Scopri, on the Nicholson St tram. Away from the noise and hustle of Lygon Street- the venue was insane from the moment we booked until we finished our cleansing ale. The service was exceptional, yes Anthony... More

We were looking for BYO and found this little gem. Food and service was great - only criticism $15 corkage per person/bottle was steep!

This is a gem: comfortable, friendly and quiet. The food is excellent; the service friendly, efficient and unobtrusive; the owners are lovely. My problem is the wine list. There are some terrific, good value wines; but every time I just talk myself into something expensive. Result: I spend more than I should. Mind you, the wines are great, I always... More

One with blue swimmer crab and one with a mix of rabbit and pork.Excellent. Other had snapper, goat and rabbit which were cooked perfectly. You can bring your own wine for a reasonable corkage...

I have found the quality of food to be "second to none" with unique Italian dishes and a great staff with an understanding of the food and wine menu. The BYO is very reasonable and worth considering.

I've dined at Scopri 4 times now and I did find (Scopri in Italian means find, to find) an excellent Italian restaurant from starters to dessert. Service is very good and friendly but never too intrusive. Well done guys, keep with the good dishes.

The food a Scopri is terrific and it would be an excellent restaurant if they could just get their execution right. On our visit there were four of us there for dinner on a Saturday night and we elected for their ‘Let us feed your table’ option – in effect a chef’s selection of four courses. This is great way...

Have eaten here several times. The food is high quality authentic Italian and it has the bonus of owners that are very friendly and knowledgeable. The glassware is also excellent. A real treasure.

My friend and I love trying different restaurants and in Melbourne there are so many good ones you rarely get disappointed. I chose Scopri and from the moment we got there to the time we left we felt like we had been there hundreds of times it was that kind of place. You know plenty of parking (which can be... More
