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
Thank you Scugnizzo for a lovely meal. We found you on google maps and were very please to have found a lovely Italian restaurant to visit in the city. We will definitely be returning. Highly recommended.
Nice cosy & warm on a rainy winters night.
I believe this is the best Italian restaurant in Melbourne!
Delicious lunch and great service. Thanks!!
One of our best dining experiences. Excellent service, reasonable prices and the best flavoured food we had had for a long time. Highly recommended.
Authentic Italian tastes, nice food
Wine was expensive
A great restaurant with consistently outstanding service and excellent food and wine list. It is also great for a weekday business lunch. Highly recommended.
Good for a quick business lunch, but can’t say I we were convinced to come back again.. food was average unfortunately
Lovely atmosphere and good service
lovely food, great service
Wonderful food and lovely staff. Definitely try the risotto and tiramisu!
Great service - Will definitely be back (good place to take clients)
The meals took a long time to arrive which meant we didn’t have time for dessert or coffee.
attentive service throughout and the host worked hard to please. Food good and discount of one main meal. Would recommend. You can register for your birthday meal.
Great entrees. Especially the calamari. Large variety of mains and entrees. Looking forward to visiting again.
Food was amazing
558 Little Bourke St, 3000, Melbourne, Australia
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
