This was rated as best restaurant in Melbourne on Trip Advisor and didn't disappoint. Food was contemporary Italian which was delicious yet not overly filling.

I've been here a few times now and each time it is the rabbit that does it for me - haven't tried anything else as a main - however my partner has tried other dishes.

We'll admit - TripAdvisor helped us find Scopri - number 1 restaurant in Melbourne... we had to try that. And so glad we did. The food was fresh, simple, tasty.

It's hard to find something to say about this place that hasn't already been said. What I can say is after an outstanding meal with fantastic service, a generous glass of their fine Grappa is a must. We WILL be back!

Outstanding food, excellent service (friendly, attentive) and wonderful atmosphere. Special mention to the Whiting fish special - one of the best if not the best fish dishes we've ever had anywhere. For the standard offered the price is reasonable.

Simply outstanding atmosphere, food and service at a competitive price. It's a step above all the Italian restaurants on Lygon street. So it's worth the extra distance if you're coming from the city.
