No1 on trip advisor is a wonderful effort.
We weren’t disappointed.
Their attention to detail and friendly service was almost without fault.
We came for lunch and whilst almost full was not noisy.
Calamari, flounder (huge) and stuffed king George whiting (the nicest I’ve ever had) were our main courses. Everyone was delighted.
The only negative was the meals didn’t all quite come together.

We came in for a late lunch during the week after hearing so much about this little treasure. We were not disappointed.
The staff are friendly and attentive, and quickly brought our first drinks while we decided on what to have.
The prosecco was light and delicious, a perfect starter, to a fabulous meal. We shared a calamari for starters, which was light and delicious.
For mains we had the Ossobuco and the capretto rustico (slow cooked goat) with sides of the homegrown silverbeet and roasted beetroot and ricotta salad.
Oh my!!! Simply stunning food, tender, succulent and amazingly delicious. Everything was so good, we just savored every mouthful.
The only problem was we were so full, we had no room left to try a dessert. We had coffee and tea, which were also delicious, and then waddled home, feeling very happy and contented!
Wonderful food, wonderful staff, wonderful restaurant. We'll be back with an empty tummy, and try some dessert next time.

Excellent Italian food prepared with love. Services is exceptional. Wine list is large and varied. Getting in is the only problem as bookings need to be made well in advance.

From the moment you arrive at Scopri you are well looked after. Service is efficient and friendly. Food is delicious. Servings are generous and perhaps next time we will consider sharing the main courses. What more can I say....just go and try it for yourself !!

After booking 4 weeks ahead to get in I was expecting something special. We appeared to have been singled out into an alcove area on arrival but all fears were quickly put to rest once attended to by the waiter who provided exemplary service to us for the night. Really well matched wines and he took care to accurately describe the dishes when prompted.
We decided on letting Scopri choose the dishes for the night and had 7 in total. This turned out to be a good choice but we were so full by the end that we would have refused a chocolate mint for fear of bursting.
Picking the winners on the night was hard as each dish was superb in its own right and cooked with the passion and love that you would expect - true Italian home styled food cooked to perfection!
My top 3 would be the Cerviche fish, the Ravioli and the Italian styled chocolate fondant. That fondant we are still talking about 7 days later!
All the pastas were sublime- hand made and fresh.
Possibly the best restaurant I have had the pleasure to eat at - ever. Can not be faulted.
