    The whole experience here is impressive. The atmosphere is good, the staff are very entertaining and caring, good recommendation of wine and drinks, and the food is amazing! Very reasonable price for such food and service. One of the staff even recommended us a special drink for my sick friend and it tastes nice :)

    Sud, in the heart of Melbourne’s bustling CBD, is such a wonderful restaurant. Cheery, knowledgeable staff greet diners like they’re family and proprietor Vincenzo ensures everybody has a wonderful, memorable meal. The food is delicious and the wine list is superb. I’ll definitely be going back next time I’m in Melbourne. Excellent!!

    Small and cozy place, love the food :) We were waiting for the last friend to arrive and waited about 40mins, the waiters were still so patient with us. Thank you! will definitely come again!

    Sud proves that a city cannot have too many excellent Italian restaurants. Perhaps this explains its rather isolated urban location - King Street - although Foglio et Fico is more remote on Spencer Street. Food and service are top notch - it's a pretty small space, but there are plenty of staff to suit your needs, and you may get several visits by owner Vincenzo to make sure everything goes well. My impression is that the Italian style is more inclined to a simple and rich ending, not the high-tech nature of some places, and it is awesome to have this choice.

    Found myself in the city alone and hungry. Google pointed me in the direction of SUD and I was not let down. Food was fantastic, as was the service. Highly recommended if you're in this post of town.

    It was my very last day in Melbourne and I was so lucky that I found SUD. The waiters are so helpful and thanks for that , I had a wonderful ending of my birthday trip in Melbourne.

  • 5James S. 1 year ago
    Fantastic experience, REAL authentic Italian!! Just like Griffith NSW. I recommend the Montepulciano red wine and the squid ink pasta!!

  • 5Geoff C. 1 year ago
    How have I lived in Melbourne and not been here? Amazing service, mind blowing dishes, perfect wine recommendation and small intimate setting. Will be a regular on our list!

  • 5Deswaqr K. 8 months ago
    I went here for lunch with my friend on the day we were flying back home. We were woefully underdressed in hiking/travel attire and almost didn't go in because it looked too fancy. The reviews here persuaded us and we're so happy they did. This might just have been *the* best dining experience we've ever had.

  • 5Corey R. 10 months ago
    This might not look like much from the outside however it is a fantastic restaurant. The food, wine and service all exceeded our expectations. I will definitely go back and highly recommend it. The smoked buffalo mozzarella and the homemade meatballs were standouts.

    Not trendy, not likely to change, but an absolute classic Melbourne restaurant with convivial hosts, superb food, great wines, and company. Overall one of the best restaurant experiences I have had in Melbourne or the world.

    We had not heard of SUD before and just randomly wandered in off the street. So glad we did! The atmosphere in the restaurant was warm and welcoming, the food was magnificent, the 3 wait-staff were all attentive, quirky and fun, and we were made to feel like old friends. A truly wonderful dining experience, and we can't wait to go back next time we're in Melbourne.

    A small Italian restaurant which was packed on a sunday night so we just managed to grab the last table as we hadn’t booked. The service was warm and friendly, our waiter very knowledgeable about the wine (although only a few were available by the glass) and the food was absolutely delicious - probably the best pasta I’ve ever eaten. A couple of small negatives, on a wet windy evening it was a little cold inside and the owners bonhomie was rather loud at points in the evening as he regaled a large table with a number of enthusiastic anecdotes!

  • 5Jimmy J. 1 year ago
    My favorite Italian restaurant in Melbourne. Absolutely the best

  • 5Andrew H. 1 year ago
    Loved it, everything was delicious. Chicken liver parfait, risotto, pasta, tomatoes with buffalo mozzarella and fresh herbs, and the desserts.. so good. Great staff. Very knowledgeable, very encouraging to try new dishes but ultimately they would bring whatever we wanted. Very enjoyable

    The whole experience here was warm, friendly and personal. The intimate setting of this restaurant sets you up to be looked after extremely well by the staff. Food was exceptional leaving you with no room to spare when you leave. Only off putting part of the whole night was when I requested a glass of desert wine, a whole bottle was opened and then poured for the rest of the group who didn't want it. Which we were then subsequently charged for.
