    We initially had trouble finding Cecconi’s as it’s in a basement but we persevered and it was worth it. A very smart well appointed restaurant with a nice atmosphere. We started with the day’s special beef tartare and some warm olives, both delicious. Then some excellent pasta - pappardelle with rabbit rags and seafood linguine, both perfectly cooked. Would certainly recommend it highly and look forward to visiting again when we are next in Melbourne.

    We had a delicious meal last night. We hadn’t been to Cecconi’s for a year but as soon as we arrived the waiter Patrick remembered us and gave us a warm welcome. Another waiter also remembered us from our last visit. It’s a really great restaurant with delicious food and lovely staff and we will definitely go back the next time we visit Melbourne.

    Experience was terrible . Waited 45 minutes before we even got bread . Tuna tartare was overpowered by endive and was bitter. Agnelotti pasta had butter which was starting to solidify on the top and they were drowning in butter . Awful . Pork cotoletta although tasted well was overpriced for what was given . Service was ok but they had made a mistake with the mains . Drinks service terrible . Not worth the money for a night out to celebrate my sons birthday . I’m sorry but very disappointing

    Overall an exceptional dining experience. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate my family, specifically my 3 year old son, which has not been our experience on many occasions at restaurants of this calibre. The food & service was 10/10 incredible. Grateful for Cecconi’s making my birthday dinner a memorable one. Will be returning to this amazing restaurant!!

    Expensive for what you get. $28 for water. $27 for a cocktail that was 90% IceCube. Frito misto was excellent, as was spatchcock. Sautéed vegetables were too bitter to eat. Gnocchi was average., as was papardelle. Overall nice, but way too expensive.
