We were really lucky to find this restaurant during our short stay in Melbourne. Vincenzo is a great host who knows how to combine high quality food, great wines and a very charming atmosphere to fully satisfy the expectations of an excellent restaurant in a cosmopolitan city like Melbourne. Although the quality is so high, the price is more than... More

We came here for a birthday celebration and wasn't dissapointed. With different dietary requirements, the waiter who was a great entertainer all night with excellent knowledge of what's in every menu item, was able to offer some of us food not on the menu and it was all fantastic! The highlight for me was the scallop starter and tirimasu dessert.... More

Sud is a real Italian restaurant run by real Australian Italians. No pasta or cheap pizza here - only the good stuff. My risotto was perfect and made with an unusual rice variety unique to Italy. The fish was totally fresh and perfectly cooked to retain its softness and flavour. The veal was authentic and my wife's dessert very accomplished.... More

We chose this restaurant for lunch because of its closeness to our hotel and because it was in our Entertainment Book (25% discount). We were on a weekend visit from interstate and had just arrived. We were welcomed by a most professional maitre'd who was excellent. We started with tuna carpaccio and prosciutto - both were delicious. For mains we... More

We happened upon this little Italian restaurant while walking through Melbourne. What a find!!! Outstanding service, delicious food and an all-round lovely dining experience. The gnocchi is the lightest I've ever had.

I have been to Sud Food and Wine Bar on at least six occasions – including functions for 30 people, romantic dinners for two and memorable lunches out with friends. I have been lax in reviewing the wonderful restaurant - probably because it is my home city. I absolutely recommend visiting the restaurant and enjoying the attentions of Vincenzo and... More
