Our meal was delicious and good service intially but the wait staff ignored us for the last 40 mins , even though we waved and tried to get their attention.They were at the next table and knew we wanted service but choose not to come over.Disappointing in the current covid recovery climate , you would think they would be hoping to give consistence good service.Thus we left and they missed out in further .orders.Also the older lady at register did not even talk to us or meet our eyes when we had to pay at counter as waiter had not even returned to give us account...Rude

The service was very good, the venue is great. The food was also very good. The only criticism was that the pork main dish was a bit dry.

We went for a Friday lunch. Lots of city worker groups but not too noisy. The staff are very professional and know exactly what needs to be done to ensure a happy diner. The food quality was excellent. Fried zucchini flowers were perfect. The veal pasta was soft and delicate but was dry and needed some sauce. Fantastic wine list with some wonderful Italian wines on offer. I can recommend this place.

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)
