Four nights in a row dining and still wanting more!

One of the highlights of my trip to Melbourne was coming across Sud by accident and going in to dine by chance. It was absolutely faultless and so enjoyable that we have now been four nights in a row. The mushroom risotto was superb as was the accompanying salad; the canneloni stuffed with... read more

I recently was in Melbourne on business and chose this restaurant based on Tripadvisor's recommendations as it was close to where I was staying and it had received a number of good reviews. The wait staff were lovely, making good recommendations regarding the food and wine. However the owner (who was up the back of the restaurant) started making comments... More

Went to Sud on my own or with friends. Context is very cosy and quiet. Nice music in the background and friendly customers. I am french, addicted to italian food. This is definitely one of the best italian place in Melbourne. Service is perfect, manager is awesome. Cant help myself... I will have to come back!

Every time we go here its awesome. Vinchenzo is a charming and entertaining Maitre D'. We always ask him to choose our food and wine and he has never let us down. We brought family from overseas with us this time - they were amazed by his service and attention to detail. Oh, and the food is great too !

All of the food was over-salted. As far as the service, I wouldn't bother going to this restaurant if you are a minority (unless, of course, you have at least one caucasian in your party). We were ignored for the most part and served poorly. We waited about 30 minutes before our order was taken after being seated. Every other... More

Ther menu is small and diverse. We quizzed the waiter about the elements. It was all good food but I fell in love with dessert. I ordered semi freddo and I have to say it was exquisite. Perfectly prepared and presented and well beyond yummy

We ordered seafood Spaghetti and we asked the chef to make it spicy. When the food arrived, we realized the Spaghetti was uncooked so we asked the waiter to check into it. He admitted that indeed the Spaghetti was under cooked and he actually made a new dish to make sure the quality of food isn't altered with. We had... More

Sud ticks all the boxes. Wonderful food. Innovative, fresh and absolutely delicious. The ambience, service and decor is beautiful. You wouldn't know it from the street but the moment you walk in you are transported to a replica of a traditional trattoria found in Italy.
