We can see why scopri is number one on TripAdvisor!

We arrived early as we got the booking time mixed up and the welcome was still. Dry warm and we were escorted to our table immediately without so much as an issue. The waiter we had was fantastic and the food was really delicious.

Overall the atmosphere was warm and it didn’t feel stuffy like some fine dining places.

We will be back!

You know something special is going on when you can only get a reservation for 2 on a Tuesday evening at 6.30pm, and you must be out by 8pm. Scopri is that good. The ambience is convivial, its as if everyone in the restaurant is sharing a wonderful secret. Waiters are very friendly and helpful. Food is superb. We shared an entree of baccala croquettes, which had the smoothest texture and were sublime. I loved the King George Whiting, and my friend enjoyed his rustic kid goat stew. The wine list is interesting and well matched to the menu. We will definitely return.

Whilst relative small and unobtrusive from the street, inside is a different story. Excellent decor, food and service. Price reflects. Would definitely recommend.

We had eaten at this location when the restaurant was in another name and another owner. That was a fab and memorable lunch, and we were keen to go back to to see what had developed...

A wonderful home style ambience of refined elegance, subdued lighting and decor, crisp tablecloths and sparkling glasses. We knew we were in for a treat.

It's not often that I'm salivating at every dish explained of the daily specials.. a hard choice, but there were four of us, so I knew I could ensure we had variations around the table.

Absolutely stand out service - our waiter has been there for many years, and knew exactly when what and how.. no fuss, generous and warm, with both food and wine.

With a Sicilian focus, though taking dishes from other parts of Italy, perfect presentation and superb food with wonderful organic side dishes.

If all of that is not enough of a recommendation... I give up!!! Go and enoy!

When you enter this terrace in Carlton you expect to see Marlon Brando sitting in one corner holding court. The aromas from the kitchen have me scurrying to to the table to inspect the menu. And it doesn't disappoint. Gnocchi stuffed with rabbit in a light sauce. The whole flounder "the best fish I've ever eaten"is the comment from one of the diners who probable eats fish 3-4 times a week. There's a de-boned spatchcock wrapped in proscuitto. And a deliciously tender goat, on the bone and bathing in a light white sauce with potatoes & peas.Yum! The deserts don't disappoint either. The silky pannacotta & the apple tart are a must. The wait staff are friendly, helpful & full of good humour. Our waiter Patrick was an absolute delight.Cant wait to go back.
