My friend and I love trying different restaurants and in Melbourne there are so many good ones you rarely get disappointed. I chose Scopri and from the moment we got there to the time we left we felt like we had been there hundreds of times it was that kind of place. You know plenty of parking (which can be rare), friendly greeting at the door, quickly seated with menu's it was off to the perfect start. Since it wasn't that busy the day we went, we had a friendly chat with the staff and owner which was great. Although this place has an interesting menu with some traditional Italian specialties, there were also some dishes that sounded interesting but we decided to stick with some old favourites. We started with fried zucchini with a lovely ricotta cheese filling and an asparagus salad with bocconcini & parmesan that was light & fresh. For mains we opted for pasta, one a squid ink with shellfish, and the other a spinach & ricotta ravioli in butter sauce. Couldn't fault the meals they were cooked perfectly and it was just enough that we were able to squeeze in the cannolo scopri with coffee gelato & buffalo ricotta which was to die for. The atmosphere was comfortable and bright which is sometimes uncommon with Italian restaurants. This place is perfect for a casual lunch with friends or dinner with another couple.We couldn't fault anything about this place, and will definately be coming back soon.
