About Scugnizzo

Located on Little Bourke Street with entry via Merritts Place, Scugnizzo restaurant is warm, casually elegant and offers a calm respite from the busy activity of Melbourne’s CBD. Scugnizzo’s traditional Italian inspired cuisine and warm hospitality make for a welcoming dining experience. This popular choice for locals intrigues with aromatic smells from the kitchen, as well as a classic European brick aesthetic, drawing in those passing by. Daily blackboard specials feature a variety of dishes like fresh fish of the day or housemade pasta and are anticipated by regulars who stop by to try a new and exciting combination. On the regular menu, find risotto al taleggio with pork sausage and caramelised pear in a white wine sauce, or housemade chickpea gnocchi with snapper, olive and leek ragu.

Best Reaturant ever!!


The best Italian Reaturant I have ever been to! The food, wine and service is un fault-able! I have been to this Reaturant over 60 times I'm the past 2 years and have never been disappointed!


Friendly, convivial and attentive service coupled with creative, sublimely understated dishes; brilliant!


Have been twice this month.
On each occasion, the service and food has been exceptional. Everyone at Scugnizzo is warm and a real genuine desire to please. THe chef has real passion about his food and not a loud place, very relaxed and welcoming.

A real winner.


It had been a long while since I had been able to enjoy beautifully cooked and presented Italian food which encapsulates traditional recipes with a fresh interpretation. Scugnizzo's menu and food is full of the chef's obvious passion for food. There is a classy wine list that complements the menu perfectly. Friendy helpful staff. I will definately visit again.


I love going to scugnizzo, particularly for the home made pasta which never disappoints. It has a beautiful atmosphere and is the perfect venue for any group size. I am so glad that they are now open every night during the week. I highly recommend a visit!
