We were roaming around for ages before we found Scugnizzo. We were absolutely delighted when we found it. The service was high class, quirky and fun and the food was incredible! A lovely place in an old building with a great atmosphere. A must visit!

We came across this restaurant after walking past about twenty competitors on a cold Thursday evening in a part of the CBD that is not well known for reasonably priced, professional operations. A simple measure of quality, before the menu is heat, light and sound....More

After a spree of bad restaurant choices, it was great to stumble on this really humble restaurant. Hidden down an alley, you'd hardly know it was there. But, it's worth the visit. The staff are friendly, the food is great and all in all it's...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
