Such amazing service! Took my Mum for her birthday and it was so nice of the staff to acknowledge it and organise a birthday surprise for her. We didn't feel rushed, everything was timed well and of a high standard.

The whole experience was a great example of Melbourne dining at its best. A beautiful lunch. Only area for improvement is to address is the lack of even one vegetarian option on the menu for main course. Other than that, highly recommended.

Everything was excellent. We have been a few times before. Unfortunately on this one occasion, both pasta dishes were chewy as the pasta was slightly undercooked.

I have been dining at Cecconi’s for over 20 years. The restaurant is one of Melbourne’s best kept secrets. Tucked away downstairs the space is so peaceful and beautiful. The food as always is outstanding.

Cecconi's has just re-opened, so have to cut them some slack. Service was good, albeit a little pushy to ensure the bill really racheted up.
And for Tiger prawns at $60, you would expect them to be perfect. They were overcooked, and a little tasteless.
Veal Cotoletto was fine, as were the carpaccio and breasoala entree's.

Enjoy this restuarant. Always have. But for prime dining experience, each dish needs to be be perfect, or at the very least, better than what we could achieve at home.
