    Main meal and desert was excellent. The wine list was extensive. The Service was quick and friendly. Could see into the busy kitchen and it was good to see the chef out and about.

    Loathe to post a (deserved) great review in case Scugnizzo becomes the 'go to' place to eat. The beauty of this restaurant, apart from the terrific service & presentation, & yummy food, is the relatively quiet ambience. A good option if you want to actually converse while you eat

    The meals took a long time to arrive which meant we didn’t have time for dessert or coffee.

About the restaurant

Italian Done Right Tucked down Little Bourke Street in Melbourne’s CBD, Scugnizzo is the type of restaurant you’ll be recommending to friends. It’s quiet enough for good conversation, whether it’s a lunch with business colleagues, dinner with girlfriends or a first date. Scugnizzo is sophisticated Italian fare with homemade charm, the type of food that can please everyone at the table. The risotto and ravioli are worth taking note of, as is the gnocchi. And to top it off, the presentation here is top-notch, too. Scugnizzo represents owner Carmine Carannante’s childhood in Naples and experience as a chef in Italy and London. With this Melbourne CBD restaurant, Carmine brings the vivid colours of Southern Italy to Melbourne while paying tribute to the many restaurants he’s worked for, including his time as head chef at Caffe e Cucina. When you head to Scugnizzo, you’re likely to see Carmine roaming the dining room and chatting with patrons. After all, that personal touch is what this warm, inviting Italian eatery is all about. Best dish: gnocchi
