    Stand out fab. Delicious food and wine. Proper professional waiters. For example: we mentioned that one of our party had to leave a 2.30pm and the waiter came over at 2.25pm to check that she was ready to leave and asked if he could he get her coat. Anyway. Love it. For us it's a special occasion place and it made our special occasion just fabulous.

    The waitress always was with a bad mood and never did the correct protocole to offer a nice service. Food no juicy and dry, too oily, simple,u can’t even feel the flavours because the oil made it disappeared. The only nice person is the old girl at the counter, she’s so nice. Anyway, never coming back to this place. I had been there 2 times, always the same. Service, food , prices 2/5 Old girl in counter 5/5

    If you go on a quiet night the food and service is great however if you go on a friday night, its very obvious that all the staff are struggling and are too busy to be able to provide good service, and the chefs must rush the cooking process because my gnocchi were not good at all, whereas when i ate on a quiet wednesday night the gnocchi was absolutely delicious. They definetely need to hire more staff to be prepared for those busy nights, and to prepare consistent food.

    We've visited some wonderful restaurants in our time and Cecconi's stands high with the best. The food and service was first class. What puts Cecconi's above the others for us is their understanding and attention to detail. My wife has recently developed a number (17) of less common food allergies - sulphites, lactose, corn, egg, pepper, etc, etc. More often than not, this presents a problem to most restaurants and eateries resulting in offerings of plain steamed vegetables, fish and such like. Very frustrating! But not here! The understanding, service and attention of the staff of this establishment came to the fore. - A real and very successful tweak of my wife's choice from the days' menu was presented. Delicious!! Outstanding!! Thank you Cecconi's .

    Waiters were lovely. Enjoyed the entrees and sides, pasta and risotto were lacking. One salad had very brown avocado, would have preferred it was left out of the salad.

    We were given a voucher to Cecconi's for Christmas last year, I book lunch for my husband and myself for 06/07, the value didn't cover what we ordered but we were more than happy to pay the difference. The food was delicious and our wait service were fantastic, they were very knowledgeable in answering any queries we had regarding the menu and wines. We will definitely return and let family and friends know how good it is.
