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. Traditional Italian-inspired cuisine and hospitality make for a welcoming dining experience and a popular choice for locals; as intriguing smells waft from the kitchen and a classic European brick aesthetic draws in those passing by. Say ciao to starters like kingfish carpaccio and gremolata, or grilled calamari, cos lettuce and balsamic dressing; before mains such as baked potato gnocchi, tomato, basil and mozzarella. Perhaps risotto with calamari, pippies, prawns, snapper, cherry tomato and bisque tempts; or pick up a slice of Scugnizzo pizza - pumpkin, pork sausage, balsamic caramelised shallots and mozzarella.

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!
