We had an outstanding experience at Sud. Genuine, friendly service and excellent food (the scallops are a must have!) in a cosy neighbourhood atmosphere is very hard to find in the CDB and Sud has got it. We will be dining again!

Sud showcases great southern Italian food using the finest ingredients available. I don’t know why I waited so long to go back!!

About Sud Food & Wine

A Balance of Class and Comfort SUD is an intimate 45 seater Italian restaurant in the heart of Melbourne (between Lonsdale and Little Bourke), which boasts fresh local produce with an array of local and international dishes. While the limited seating implies formality, there is nothing pretentious going on here. The decor is restrained, with a large wine rack covering the back wall and posing as the main feature of decoration. This small, somewhat upmarket restaurant has a constantly evolving menu and an extensively dynamic wine list (hence the wine rack) to compliment every meal, sourced from various regions of Italy as well as local producers. Our favourite dish? It would have to be the generous signature plate from Head Chef, Mark Taylor - a main of duck, steamed and roasted, with sweet-potato mash and apple-balsamic segments to mop up the jus. This restaurant embodies the ‘Italian’ understanding of food, and diners are urged to ‘make a mess’ and enjoy. As they say ‘you don’t need a silver fork to eat good food!' From a business lunch to a romantic meal for two, SUD produces a reliable balance of class and southern Italian comfort. Best Dish: duck, steamed and roasted, with sweet-potato mash and apple-balsamic segments.
