“Great food slow service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

The food here was wonderful, starters where tasty and a great variety. The mains where well prepared and presented perfectly. The salmon was perfect and the steak was just right.
The downside was the drink service. The first arrived promptly however each (& every) one thereafter took 2-4 requests and if I was waiting for a glass my beer would have been flat.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013 via mobile

I just went back from a dinner to Sud and I can only confirm the very good reviews i have read so far. I'm Italian, from the south, and I felt at home. The food is great and the staff is superfriendly and professional and there is no sign of any fallacy about Italian (no pizza no mandolino) which sometimes it is possible to find in restaurant so far from Italy. Well done!

“A worthwhile visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

I was invited to Sud for a dinner meeting. I don't get to Melbourne that often, however, in my times in the Victorian capital, I have always found a myriad of dining options available. From the moment we walked into Sud, we were greeted by the owner and head waiter. This gentlemen with his twirling moustache could not have made us feel more welcome. After taking our seats and addressing the pre-dinner drinks orders, he carefully explained the dining options from the menu and a massive "Specials" board. We ordered a magnificent Xanadu Cab/Sauv from the Margaret River region that complemented our superbly cooked meals perfectly. We also enjoyed a complimentary glass of Barossa Shiraz with our cheese platter. Overall, a small boutique and reasonably priced Italian Restaurant in the heart of the Melbourne CBD that delivers on every promise. Loved it!

“Take me away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Walk through the red door and felt I was in Italy. Service fantastic as soon as we arrived. Very friendly and polite with their Italian ways. Food was amazing and prices are above average but well worth it. Meals are small but with an entre and complementary bread our bellies were satisfied. Great Italian.
