This review will be short and sweet. I have rated Scopri as excellent due to the Amazing food and the fantastic service from the moment we walked into the door until we walked out. This is a seasonal menu so there isn't much point talking about specific dishes. Even the menu online didn't match what was available and this may... More

This is the first time I have been to this restaurant but it wont be the last. From the moment we made the booking over the phone I realized that service and friendliness would feature high at this restaurant. I suggest if your after a Saturday night, you need to book a few weeks in advance. I have to say... More

I have visited this restaurant once and will definitely go back. Everything on the menu was great, very fresh, authentic and seasonal ingredients. The panna cotta was amazing. The quail was amazing. The tomato and ricotta salad was amazing! As other reviewers have noted, it's definitely a refreshing change from the hustle and bustle of Lygon street, and yes, not... More

I go to Scopri regularly, it is now my favourite restaurant in Melbourne. Great food, friendly service, beautifully decorated…and it has a byo option. Melbourne used to have an outstanding tradition of quality byo restaurants and Scopri well and truly maintains the tradition.

Been here a few times before. Very happy every time. This time they laid on a special meal which was superb. Many skills were on show and all the food was superb from the fish, pasta and risotto to duck. The portions are generous. It is intimate and there is a gentle buzz both at lunch and dinner. The staff... More

This restaurant was a friend's recommendation. It is out of the way but quite a find. It is small, very welcoming and refreshing when compared some of the pretentious nonsense on Lygon St. It's standard menu is small but interesting. The specials are the place to go. All three of us chose specials and they were wonderful. The service and... More

This little Italian restaurant is a genuine hidden gem, offering great friendly service fabulous cuisine all in a wonderful ambience. A selection of entrees to share is a great way to start followed be perhaps one of the ever changing specials from the board. The wine list contains a wonderful selection of Italian wines but it is the great service... More

Excellent service, food and atmosphere. White napkins, professional service, which is a nice change in comparison to a lot of other Italians in Melbourne.

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!
