It was my son’s 10th birthday. His favourite restaurant is Cecconi’s Cantina. He loves the staff, the food and the entire experience. It was wonderful as expected. Thank you x

Everything was just ok, nothing remarkable. It has the atmosphere of an old-fashioned boys’ club and the menu is a bit the same.

Service took terribly long- 40 minutes for a bottle of beer and wine
We ordered some items that never arrived either
Food was not good either

We booked the NYE 3 course dinner. It was $150 pp. it was not worth $150 pp and when we checked the menu online it would have been $100 if we just ordered it off the menu. We were not given a choice when booking.
I think this is a rip off charging $50 more pp for the same food.
There was also a band that was so loud we just stopped talking to each other because to talk we had to scream across the table.
Very disappointed and annoyed

Simply amazing service with very funny waiters. The food was so good. Words cannot express how great this place is. Definitely coming back again to try the Lemon Semifreddo. That dessert changed my life.

Overrated. Food wasn’t great. Found a stone in the salad. Service very average. No value for money spent.
Menu very poor, not much choice.

Great food but I was not advised that I was going to pay $80 for a portion of pasta with truffle. I was told $50/60.
A bit too expensive. If I knew about it I would not have ordered it.

Excellent food.
Entertaining and engaging waiter. Recognised it was a celebration night and arranged a little presentation.
Not cheap, but you don’t come to this restaurant for cheap.
Have been before and will go again.
Density limits make it tough on the venue, but it makes it a nice experience for the diner with less noise.
