When we think about celebrations, Cecconi’s is always our first option and it never disappoints. From the starter to the dessert the quality and tastes of everything was outstanding. Service was delightful and very professional.
We would recommend to anyone!

In semi COVID world the restaurant was very quiet on a Saturday lunchtime, so the ambience got voted down for that.. though not their fault. Menu is concise, but all delicious. Service is great... we almost had a waiter to ourselves. Wine list by the glass is fine. We had a lovely leisurely lunch. Will be back but probably in an evening when it will be more buzzy.

Delicious cocktails, great wine list, food is some of the best in Melbourne. Service did get a little slow as they got busier on a Friday night, but we had a great night nonetheless

One of my favourite Melbourne restaurants. The food is always exceptional. Our waiter was fantastic and had great advice for wine and a lovely chat about Italy (which is necessary when stuck in Melbourne)

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.

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

Overrated. Food wasn’t great. Found a stone in the salad. Service very average. No value for money spent.
