The service was exceptional and both the food and drinks were amazing. Their alternatives for a gluten free diner are outstanding- making homemade gluten free bread in house, amongst more. I would definitely return for this reason alone, as not many restaurants go above and beyond for their gluten free diners!

The food was beyond average, incredibly disappointing and unbelievably overpriced. Nice looking restaurant though. It's the only reason I gave three stars for ambience. Staff was also attentive. Albeit, they hardly ever smiled. Would not recommend to anyone...ever. I am bummed I didn't take my partner to one of the other Italian restaurants that came highly recommended by Italians. None of my Italian friends had ever heard of Cecconi's. I take full responsibility for not listening to them. Never again.

I went there Saturday evening 29th Feb with my 3 sisters
The staff were lovely waiters gorgeous so friendly
The food was lovely some main meals were a bit small. My sister ordered the salmon and she thought she was getting cooked salmon but it was a smoked salmon and tiny as anything so she had some of my beef pasta which was divine.
The cocktail that was designed that day was divine it had lemon vodka and limon cello yum in it

Lovely atmosphere and perfect for a date night. The food was outstanding and the wait staff was very friendly and nice. I’m very happy I went with the daily recommendation from our waiter, I’ve never had such good pasta in my life. Thank you.

My champagne was flat and not very cold at all I mentioned this and did get given another glass which was from a fresh bottle and it was better but not very cold sadly and I don't drink very often so was a bit disappointed sadly Plus one of our appetisers was forgotten which worked out ok in the end as we had enough food but just bummed. Would still go there again as it's a favourite but it's not cheap so hence we were disappointed.

The staff and team were absolutely beautiful and so attentive. I am getting married this weekend so the staff congratulated me, were very happy and excited for me, and further when dessert was served brought out a beautiful plate with a chocolate that said “Bride to be” and i was absolutely over the moon! The food was delicious as ever! We are here quite frequently and we have always had perfect meals! Love love love!

Someone took us here last year and we were impressed! We went on our own this year ( we are tennis fanatics!🎾). AND we’re not disappointed. The starter was artistic and very enjoyable. I had duck my companion had veal both excellent flavour. Our waiter Ben was very knowledgable AND definitely deserves a mention! I live in Perth my companion Hong Kong ! We SHALL return next year 😁 A VERY enjoyable meal.

Better instruction on the website when wanting to book for the express lunch. Booked online and were seated in the restaurant which did not offer the special - were then moved to the bar area. Waiter was rude when taking our orders, not warm or friendly, didn't look at us or make eye contact. Won't be in a rush to go back anytime soon.
