A first class restaurant with absolutely superb food and really outstanding service but ridiculously over expensive. Our waitress, an Australian now who hails from the North of England was as good as you could possibly want but the pricing is way ott.

We were mature ladies dining alone for a special occasion and felt the waiter was a little "busy" for us with his manner.
Great service though and great food, a little noisy when it was busy earlier in the evening but it was a very hectic time to dine out in Melbourne.

Meals were excellent and waiter service started out OK BUT by 1pm when tables were full our little table of 3 got no more service and we had to wave down waiters or chase them and get up to follow them..we we ignored being near several large group tables. We eventually asked for the bill at 1.30 and by 1.55 went to the front desk so we could not get a waiter. They need more rush hour staff. Won't be going back ..will stick to Florentino.

Food was very good and the waiter (a young man from Manchester, UK!) was very helpful and friendly. Through no fault of his, my husband waa substantially late for our 6.30 pm booking. But when we explained it to the waiter, he made arrangements to ensure that we did not have to leave at the appointed 8.15 on after all. We had an excellent night. Thank you.

We were booked for a "first sitting" and to be finished by 8.15pm but our waiter quickly put our minds at ease by indicating that our table wasn't required later and that there was no time pressure for us. Waiter was very personable and attentive. The menu was broad and included many options, particularly authentic Italian regional dishes. The food was delicious and all of our party made comment about how great it was. Service was perfect and we didn't ever feel rushed - we had a great dining experience with time to talk and enjoy each other's company. Food prices were as could be expected at an inner city, up market eatery. Wine prices were very steep - expect to pay $130 for a reasonable bottle of $40 wine.

For some Cecconi's is an institution and for others a new discovery ... for us a very reliable old friend whenever you want to visit. Yes there are two sitting, bookings are essential for those busy nights of the week and it is a special occasion destination ... regardless you will have a dinner to remember with first class produce, very clever and careful chefs, skilled service and an excellent wine list. You won't be disappointed.

We had dinner for our anniversary. We booked at 6.30 pm. When we came not quit busy yet. Then all seats nearly fulled around 7.00 pm. Food was superb 👍👍😘. I had crispy duck with beetroot purée & my husband had lamb rack roast . The waiter took the wrong drink order for me. She put coke instead of cosmopolitan cocktail . She apology & fix up my order. So all good.

Food and service was very good.
I felt ripped off as we were charged $20 a bottle for San Pellegrino mineral water.
We only ordered one and were charged for two.
We will stop going there
