Cecconi's Flinders Lane
One Hat – THE AGE GOOD FOOD GUIDE
Excellent evening & delicious food
First impressions are A grade, just like the food, the atmosphere and the service. Can't wait to go back.
Have been to Cecconi's many times over the years...Always absolutely beautiful food and brilliant service.
Great experience good food excellent wine & service.
Some background music would have added to ambience
I've been coming to Cecconi's with my wife for years and always recommend it to friends. Whether it's an anniversary, friends catch up or client dinner, it's always great.
Definitely a Melbourne institution.
Wonderful, just Wonderful!!!! The food was so delicious, my wife and I were transported back to Tuscany, the atmosphere is fine dining but warm and inviting, the staff were exceptional and so friendly, yes it costs a bit, but such great food and service it is worth every cent, we left very full and happy!
Lovely service, unfussy menu and delicious food. Wait-staff attentive without ‘hovering’, nice room with quiet decor.
We had a special trip to Melbourne to celebrate my daughters 16th birthday. We wanted a special dinner that offered great Italian food in a lovely setting. There was enough choice of 'normal' Italian style dishes for the girls to try and overall the food and service was fabulous. We would come again.
A pleasurable eating experience. Great to be able to book a table without menu and time restrictions
Great menu, possibly lacking some gluten free options, and, unlike so many Melbourne restaurants, really good service. Highly recommended for private or business lunches.
Fantastic food, service and ambience - I love this place!
A fantastic experience on our first visit to Cecconi's. The food was excellent, the wine reasonably priced, and the service exemplary. Too many restaurants miss at least one element, it's normally the stupid mark up on wine when the food is so good!
Bravo, we will be back!
Cecconi's is my go to place for special occasion dinners. It never disappoints! Food is divine, ambiance is warm and romantic, service is exceptional. It does sit in the upper echelons of price, but worth every penny.
A birthday dinner among 4 close friends. The service was excellent. We enjoyed the food but were selective to keep the food and wine to a reasonable per head price - $120. The price could easily escalate markedly if different choices were made.
The food was still great and we left feeling full. However, it has noticeably declined from last year.
From the moment we walked in it was a bad experience.
Not what I would classify as fine dining.
No one to greet you upon arrival, noisy and overcrowded, feels like a bistro serving overpriced lacklustre food.
I had the risotto which looked more like soup with chunks of carrot and undercooked rice floating around in it.
My partner had agnolotti with duck and rabbit and veal inside. It was too overpowering with a weird fluoro green sauce squirted over from a squeezy bottle.
Both of us didn’t finish our meals.
The waiter was arrogant.
To top it off they started rolling away tables and cleaning up while patrons were still dining just like you experience at yum cha.
Definitely not worth the money and won’t be returning.
Was wonderful! Great food and lovely staff. Would definitely recommend going.
Wonderfully warm and well lit, this venue exudes class and style. The hospitality is fantastic, the wait staff are informed and excellent hosts. It is priced at the top end of the market, but then would you expect anything different from arguably one of the best Italian restaurants in Melbourne. A late and lazy paced dinner was just the ticket for a cold Friday night ... dress up and enjoy!
The food was great, the place was fantastic,, but the service no comment.
The food and service was amazing, we can't wait to go back!
Excellent value for money. Menu was extensive with plenty of variety. Ideal fir business or romantic evening.
High quality traditional Italian with an exceptional wine list
I would recommend as the food is good however on the night we were there we had to wait a long time before we could order our drinks and that was only when we signalled the waiter. Other than that it was ok
It was my partners Birthday and they brought out a little cake and sang a short version of happy birthday in Italian, as my partner is from Italy and myself from Canada and I asked if they could. We both loved it
Amazing food, service and atmosphere!
A very pleasurable experience. Menu and service exceptional as per usual.
Great food, service and ambience. Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful evening celebrating a wedding anniversary. The food, service and ambience were all excellent .
A last minute dinner choice. We were early and had a fabulous evening. Very attentive wait staff without being "in you face". Wonderful food. Best calamari said my wife. I had quail which was beautiful and moist. The passionfruit sour cocktail scored a 10.
Lovely experience, food amazing, the staff were very attentive.
Service outstanding. Restaurant consistently exceptional over many years.
Will be back again and again
Great service and food. Very attentive staff, well coordinated work among waiters. Would highly recommend.
Great service. Came early but were able to accommodate to our seats early.
The parppadelle was sensational and would highly recommend it. Service was excellent and so to the ambience.
You never get a bad dinner , always consistently good to great .
Business lunch. Three course. Calamari fritte, oysters, pork belly. Followed by slow cooked pork brisket. Tiramisu, pudding. Couldn’t fault any of it. Expensive wines but extensive list.
We had a fantastic evening at Cecconi's Flinders Lane. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
Great ambience. Service was good. We love our chardonnay and sauvignon blanc by the glass. You only get bread with olive oil, no butter - we did not ask. As for the food, it was a little too salty for us. We initially thought the ched screwed up our linguine seafood with a tad too much salt but soon realised our risotto was also quite salty. It didn't quite hit the spot for us.
Fantastic dining experience. Beautifully located and warm greetings. Ambience is comfortable and true to fine dining. No stark, cold and noise driven environment like so many other Melbourne restaurants. Food was outstanding. Cost is high, but we were happy to pay it for the all round experience. Wonderful restaurant.
