Fantastic. We chose this restaurant based on its Trip Advisor reviews. They were all right. Best meal we had in Melbourne. Great service, great food made with the best ingredients. Other reviewers were certainly right about the rabbit. Don't miss this place.

After a very disappointing experience at another more expensive but inferior Italian restaurant I was thinking that Melbourne had lost it's Italian cooking crown, but had my faith restored at Scopri. As recommended by another reviewer I tried the rabbit, which was excellent. Wine choices were interesting and varied. The friendly and helpful service was an example of how to... More

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. Wines by the glass excelled and priced reasonably. Service was courteous and timely. Ending with chocolate cake was perfect finish to a memorable meal.

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. Overall consensus is that the food is wonderful, the wait staff are helpful, efficient and very discreet and the vibe is perfectly understated, but totally... More

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. The restaurant was small, but not too small, and the acoustics were perfect. The wine list was a nice balance of Italian and Australian. But the standout for us was... More

The exterior of this fabulous Italian restaurant is not at all encouraging. The tram stops outside, and you wonder if there has been some mistake, but no - this restaurant is superb.

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.

One of the best Italian meals I've ever had. I personally have been back twice since and recommended it to many.
