    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

    A great restaurant with consistently outstanding service and excellent food and wine list. It is also great for a weekday business lunch. Highly recommended.

    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.

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
