The food was absolutely delicious and the service was amazing too. One of the girls was kind enough to run after us when I left my handbag in the restaurant on departure. Definitely above and beyond the call of duty, especially at the end of...a long night of serving. Thanks for such a terrific experience.More

Living in NYC and having traveled to Italy half a dozen times, I’m no stranger to great pasta. It’s not an exaggeration at all to say that Scopri serves some of the best I’ve ever had. I had high hopes reading the reviews and they...were genuinely exceeded. Everything we ate from the scallop appetizer to the cannolo dessert was fantastic but I’d HIGHLY recommend trying their filled pastas and in particular, the agnolotti. I last had a pasta of this style and filling in Turin years ago and until now could never find any place doing it as good outside of the Piemonte region itself. The service also set the place over the top; Patrick was so friendly and we really enjoyed chatting with him. A real gem of a place; absolute must for anyone visiting.More

This restaurant has solid reviews on Trip Advisor so we decided to check it out on Tuesday January 23. We were a bit nervous from looking at the menu and wine list on line as choices were somewhat limited. However, our fears were eliminated when...we entered the restaurant and found a chalk board on the wall with a tantalizing dozen daily dishes. Also the wine list on line doesn’t begin to reveal all the treasures that are on the wine list. The restaurant space is warm and welcoming with a large wall mural of the town of Barbaresco making you feel you have been transported to Piedmont. We ordered three items off the daily list: 1. A Zucchini Flower stuffed with a herbed ricotta and mozzarella mixture that rested in a perfectly complimentary slightly tart tomato vinaigrette, 2. Sicilian Rabbit and carrots with a raisin and olive sauce, which had the most delicious sweet broth with the stewed rabbit (a big rear leg and a good portion of the filet). This was a spectacular dish that should be reserved only for people willing to fly to Sicily, and 3. A red beet salad that was a picture of perfection with a variety of wonderful flavours. The delicious sourdough bread here is brought to the table once you are seated. It deserves a review unto itself but is made in-house twice daily for lunch and dinner. Served with the house olive oil it is superb. I know of very few restaurants so committed to the pleasure of their guests that they bake bread in the morning and then again at 4 pm to ensure its freshness for its guests. This is a superb restaurant, serving food cooked with love, served by friendly knowledgeable staff. I have only one word, GO.More

We had my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary here tonight, just a small family dinner which could not have better. Beth was beyond fabulous as our server, she was knowledgeable, attentive and personable, The food was just fantastic. From the scallops, octopus and oysters to start...to the mains of steak, goat, risotto and pasta for both adults and kids the food was delicious. I highly recommend the apple tart for dessert and to finish the tawny port. There arent words for how good this meal was, the only regret we have is that we come from Sydney and wont be able to return on a regular basis. A huge thank you to the all the staff for making this a memorable meal and Anniversary.More

Whenever we are visiting Melbourne we make sure we dine at Scopri. From the friendly welcome when we arrive to our farewell we were treated by professional wait staff who knew and loved their job. The food is amazing. Best Italian ever. We shared the...tuna tartare to start. I enjoyed the pea risotto with spanned crab while my friend loved the flavours of the agnolotti. I ordered a glass of champagne while my friend prefers Prosecco. Both were poured at the table. Quality bread with glorious olive oil. We shared a leaf salad, picked from their farm; perfectly dressed. The pannacotta and perfect espresso martini finished off a memorable meal. We had the early seating. 6pm for 2 hours. And never felt rushed. Highly recommended.More

Experiencing Scopri Italian Food and Wine at 191 Nicholson St, Carlton, VIC 3053, was an absolute delight. Celebrating a birthday with close friends, the restaurant's Italian cuisine and inviting atmosphere made for a memorable evening. Stepping inside, the beautifully presented interior immediately set a welcoming...tone. The restaurant's meticulous cleanliness, evident in sparkling wine glasses and spotless surroundings, ensured a comfortable and hygienic environment. The menu's diverse offerings, complemented by daily specials, showcased Scopri's commitment to culinary excellence. Signature dishes like Fettuccine Ragu D'anatra and Quaglia aerostat embodied the essence of Italian flavours. Impressively, Scopri boasts an extensive wine list, with an exciting twist – the option to bring your own wine for a nominal fee of $30 per bottle, adding a personalized touch to the experience. Value for money was undeniable. The combination of delectable dishes, attentive service, and inviting ambience made every dollar worthwhile. A personal connection with the owner, Anthony, added an extra layer of warmth to the experience, reinforcing the restaurant's welcoming atmosphere. In conclusion, Scopri Italian Food and Wine is a must-visit Italian restaurant. With its authentic dishes, charming ambience, and excellent value, it's the perfect place for a delightful culinary journey.More

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated

place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
