    This restaurant just 'gets it'. The food was spectacular, the service impeccable. If you had to sum up the Melbourne restaurant culture with one experience, put this restaurant on your Melbourne 'bucket list'!

    The food and ambiance was lovely and the initial greeting was excellent but our waiter could have been better. Overall we had a lovely evening and the food was fantastic. My husband loved the stuffed olives and I think the scallops were probably the best I have ever had.

    Slow and minimal service (1 hour for starter, some large party tables and not enough staff to cope ) and , apart from an excellent cured meat platter, the food was pretty average at times even poor (cold main) for the prices. We draw the meal to a close after secondi. Shame has clearly been good in the past but was struggling to deliver all round.

    I have dined at ample Italian restaurants in Melbourne and I would be definitely back.I totally enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant and it’s quiet noise level where I could have a conversation with my partner and not be talking over other patrons dining. See you soon Cecconi’s

    Service was exceptional. We had several shared plates and he organised them to be on individual paltes when usually the shared plate is put in the middle. Also altered our pasta dishes to incorporate several different flavours.

    We have been Cecconi's before and we thoroughly enjoyed it so my daughter and her partner decided to give us a voucher for christmas. We were very disappointed with the waiting staff, they did not engage with us at all and werequite cold to us, we tried to engage but they were very dismissive, not sure if I would go back again.

    This was my third time and sadly won't be returning. We had the early sitting which felt rushed and unpleasant. Waiters clearly stressed and too many running around to get everyone served and out before the 8.15pm sitting. Food was ok but not great as previously experienced. Overall costly and unpleasant.

    Been here a number of times, has enjoyed its ambience, service and food. Though the ambience and service continues to be very good, food quality has dropped both from presentation as well taste. The linguine is a bit salty than usual and presentation of the beef brisket is very basic - this is not to the standard that Cecconi's used to have nor worth the price paid.
