Our menu is predominantly Italian in style and uses seasonal produce, sourced locally where possible, to create approachable dishes showcasing the best Victoria has to offer.

We dine here ‘pre - theatre’ with our friends on a regular basis. The staff are friendly, efficient and the food (and wine list) is consistently good. Beef Cheek and Gnocchi are delicious winter warmers!

The meal was excellent - as usual. We always book a table for our dinner after the concert. The restaurant is very pleasant and the food excellent. Very nice staff.

The service attendants were above average, not too pushy or reluctant to give guests a nice night out. When asked for recommendations, they're advice was knowledgeable about the food coming from the kitchen. And the winning factor - the food was good and well presented.

Script sits off the foyer of the MTC Southbank headquarters and is very popular for pre-theatre dinners, and we regularly visit. If you intend to visit do make sure you book ahead of time as it can get very busy. Last night's steak and beef cheeks were delicious.

Once upon a time, I would recommend other nearby options over Script for pre-theatre. But after popping in for a quick drink recently, I’m keen to give this place another go. Friendly service, tables at capacity and while we didn’t dine, the kitchen smelled glorious. Worth another visit.
