A restaurant where they manage to bring across the feeling that the passion for great food and outstanding service is whats driving this place. Everything from the atmosphere to service to the food is some of best you can experience. We were there as a couple but it is as well suited for business lunches and dinners.

The complimentary bread was so tasty. The mains were absolute stars - I had the fish of the day - the whole... More

I have been here several times and been impressed each time. They really know their Italian food without a big fuss. The boned whiting was superb.

All very reasonable considering the quality... More

From beginning to end this was an experience in good dining. The description of the specials was an exercise in tantalizing the tastebuds, appetite and style. Each creation was everything we had hoped for; superb flavors, imaginative and well balanced. Nothing at all to fault. Worth making a reservation.

Nothing at all to fault, the food was great, entree mains and desserts. Beer and wine list was extensive but the service made this place stand out. Well done to the team at scopri, you thoroughly deserve your number 1 rating!!
