    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.

    Service was great but food was below expectations. The linguine was a bit hard like undercooked and salty. Risotto of the day wasn’t delicious as well and a little bit hard as well. The next table ordered the same risotto as me and only had a few spoonful too.

    What a disappointment. Food was average at best, ambience was like dining at a 90s business lunch and the service was stale. The food was rushed and came out in quick succession. I left with a sore tummy from eating too quickly. It felt like they were hurrying guests along. We left after an hour and 15 minutes and went for drinks elsewhere. On the positives, the wine list was nice.

    We both had the special Risotto. It was not hot enough, and we did not like the taste, or the presentation on a plate. I have been going to this restaurant for many years. Overall a great place, and I would still recommend it, I had just one average meal yesterday

    The food and the restaurant were great, except that we were made to feel very uncomfortable by the wait staff who wanted to move us from the table before we had finished our meal. We felt pushed and hurried through the meal, and certainly not the experience I expected when I paid $1000 for the meal and a generous tip under the circumstances. For restaurants to want to maximise the customers spend and minimise the time available to consume a meal of 3 courses and wines is disingenuous.
