Great Food, great service!

Could not fault the food, from ricotta gnocchi with ragout, lamb , seafood pasta and the desserts were absolutely divine. We will be back. We like that it is BYO and we don't mind paying for the corkage as we always bring more expensive wine to accompany great food.

We were a group of 4 and decided to share the appetizers except the sardines which the guys had all to themselves (they said they were great!) The gnocchi in gorgonzola sauce was outstanding as were the gilled tomatoes and mozzarella and dried beef. We each had a different main and all were quite fabulous. The wait staff and the... More

Organised a dinner for 13 in private room upstairs. We had the banquet menu at $75 per head which was truly magnificent in its presentation, taste, variety and quantity. Great wine was available and consumed and the night was topped off by great service from some of the best wait staff around.

Food great, lovely atmosphere and we appreciated the BYO. We will definitely return. Only down note was when the waitress commented that when we ordered more bread, "there goes our profits".

I was due to catch up with an old friend who had just moved to Mebourne,and after hearing about Scopri in Carlton I thought this place would be good. We booked for Thursday lunch and surprisingly the restaurant was near empty.The waitress was Italian and very friendly and proceeded to take our beer orders.Warm bread and olive oil was brought...

By any standards this is a great restaurant - food, service, ambiance,value for money so no hesitation in going back time and again. A restaurant that values the BYO system is good because I think we all feel a little deflated when we see restaurant wine prices. When I say they 'value' this - well they asked if they could...

Went here solely due to the Trip Advisor rating and wasn't disappointed. Very good service and a nice setting. Went BYO but appeared to have a solid wine list anyway. Entrees OK although a little overworked. Mains great, especially the seafood pasta. Desserts excellent. Price was also quite reasonable. Worth a visit!

Warm surroundings on a cold Melbourne evening, enough space and great food and wine. The service was wonderful, and the staff especially helpful. Best goat ever.

As a visitor from Adelaide I have been coming to this location when it was Arrivederci Restaurant since 1995. In the last 5 years there has been a name change Scopri and new owners but the food is still excellent. On the night we visited we started with an antipasto which was made up of a fine array of cured... More

Dined here on a Saturday evening and we were very impressed. The starter specials were great, as was the quail and the home made pasta dishes. De-boned spatchcock was delicious though the bistecca was slightly less of a wow. Dolci were satisfying, service faultless and they encourage BYO wine (their wine list is pretty good if you forget). Think it's... More
