    Always impeccable food and service, succulent, delicious flavors, with attentive, friendly staff. This is our favorite restaurant in Melbourne. We are so happy we are locals, so we can walk to and from, because the wine list is also excellent! The vegetables are grown in their own gardens in the Macedon ranges, we have had every dish on the menu, can’t fault a single one. Thank you Anthony and team for extraordinary food and service!

    This is a very traditional Italian restaurant and the homemade pasta is second to none. In a word perfect ?

    Simply Amazing!!! I have been to many Italian restaurants in Melbourne and nothing compares to this. Food is beyond words and service was impeccable. Compliments to Patrick, who enhanced our experience and made our night one to remember.

    This was a real experience; the perfect service, the romantic and relaxing environment, the perfect food (that apparently is from their farm... making it particularly impressive) When we want to celebrate something special, this is our place... not the fine dining brand name restaurants

    Flys below the radar - Excellent service, friendly and obliging, with a top menu selection, beautifully cooked and generously served.

    We LOVE Scopri and although I’d love to keep this hidden gem to myself – you must give kudos where kudos is due. We like to go a few times a year for special occasions and I would describe it as semi-fine dining with added warmth. The food and wine is delicious – even the starter bread which they make themselves is amazing. Keep up the good work Scopri!

  • 5Grace O. 1 year ago
    Absolutely amazing beautiful perfect food omg. Three generous courses wine and coffee for just over $80, and the best food you could ever imagine. The flavours fresh and delicate but very flavourful, the service was truly majestic, you felt like family and yet royalty. I felt incredibly happy after this experience.

    The combination of excellent food and service, in a quietly sophisticated environment, but without pretensions, is wonderful. My favourite place to celebrate important moments (or just life)

    Usually It's extremely rare to be impressed when it comes to food from the restaurants but man this restaurant got everything on point, from entrée to dessert, it was amazing. Definitely going back there for some mind blowing meals. Wagyu steak and scallops are highly recommended and that lava dessert was also incredible.

  • 5Lolasita L. 1 year ago
    We had the most lovely birthday dinner here. The staff were attentive and genuine without being overbearing, and the food was wonderfully tasty and unpretentious. They even sent us home with some of their amazing home baked bread - very much appreciated! We will definitely be back!

  • 5Deswaqr K. 8 months ago
    We wanted a quieter smaller restaurant with good food and Scopri lived up to all our expectations. The staff were happy and welcoming. Menu was fabulous and food delicious! It is a gem and not to be missed. We were here for lunch. I highly recommended this restaurant.

  • 5I. 1 year ago
    It was my first time in there and i will be back for sure. Hands down the best place for italian food in Melbourne. I loved everything, from fried calamari, to seafood salad, to risotto with zucchini and prawns, to the various specials. Good service, good quality of food. Well done guys!

    White linen. Perfect Italian food. Excellent wines. Impeccable, personable service. And it won't break the bank, either. Can't wait to return.

    (Translated by Google) There is a reason to think of this place as an institution in Melbourne. It's simple, it's consistent and offers special dishes that are considered delicious. The staff is always helpful, the wine list is rich and the tasting menu is worth the money. We have eaten here at least 5 times and have never let us down. (Original) 有一个理由将此地方视为墨尔本的机构。 很简单,它是一致的,并提供被认为美味的特殊菜肴。 工作人员总是乐于助人,酒单种类丰富,品尝菜单物有所值。 我们在这里吃了至少5次,而且从未让我们失望过。

    There’s a reason this place is considered a Melbourne institution. Quite simply, it is consistent and delivers exceptional dishes that are considered and flavourful. The staff are always helpful, the wine list is expansive and the tasting menu is value for money. We’ve eaten here at least 5 times and it has never once disappointed.

  • 5Bruce H. 1 year ago
    I believe this is one of our best restaurants. Its menu is extensive and offers a wide range from capaccio of kingfish to slow roasted goat. Much of the produce comes from their own farm. The service is outstanding and as professional as I have experienced. As a bonus, they serve the best house made bread I have ever eaten

  • 3Yijing L. 2 years ago
    Went there because it was the No.1 rated restaurant in Melbourne. But my experience was a bit disappointed. The service was slow, the food looks good but tasted just average.

  • 1Samantha O. 1 year ago
    Most disappointingly sad meal Like most people we found this restaurant through the many rave reviews and were excited to visit and as foodies enjoy every second. Firstly the food; zucchini flowers were tasteless apart from the strong olive oil, not sure what the orange sauce flavour should have been but it was missing. Then the Calamari that was average and entirely forgettable. The star; the Oysters that were delicious but served with an astringent and inedible vinegrette and shallot dressing. The Flounder that was very tasty and beautifully presented but which non of the servers offered to plate for us. Bizarre as even the calamari was offered for plating. Not something I was expecting but showed terrible service etiquette. The Steak perfectly cooked where the server offered to plate for us having explained that it was already sliced to then find the the steak was only sliced once, whereupon she hurriedly ran to get a knife and started hacking. We ordered a stellar Barolo that was delicious and decanted but the server was determined to minimise his need to serve us so we had one bottle served to us in three hefty lots, which did not do it justice. On top of this every time we were served water a huge splash landed on my sleeve and table place with no comment. Finally, the service and overall team ambience; obviously there are huge issues between kitchen and service and this is maybe why the manager was busy lurking around every table with a menacing eye on his staff. There was a tangible atmosphere where even we were reluctant to be honest about our experience. What’s sad is that this could have been so great but the horrible service the bland food and the general chaos between staff means we won’t go back and that’s the best way we can vote, is with our feet. So many better places to go in Melbourne, unless you’re very local, don’t bother.
