    Staff were friendly...disappointed with the presentation of the food. The salumi board was boring and the pasta was edible nothing to recommend it.

    Unfortunately my wife wasnt feeling very well when we arrived so we didnt get the full restaurant experience. However the meal that I had was delicious and the wine menu looked really good. Pity we couldnt partake of it fully.

    I have been going to Scugnizzo for years and tonight I took a group of colleagues who have never been before. They absolutely loved it. The loved the vibe, the staff and the food. I had the best gnocchi dish tonight that I have ever had and one of my colleagues said she had the best steak she had ever had. I don’t give 10/10 reviews but tonight was really special.

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
