Cecconi's Flinders Lane
One Hat – THE AGE GOOD FOOD GUIDE
It has been several years since our last visit and we were't disappointed. We mistakenly arrived half an hour early and offered to wait at the bar but, were assured all was fine and were shown straight to our table. Food fantastic and service helpful and attentive. Will definitely visit again and recommend!
When a restaurant lasts as long as this one has and is obviously as popular as ever, they mus be doing something right. The ambience, the food and the service are all first class. Great place for a special occasion.
Myself and colleagues were very impressed on all fronts. Service was impeccable as was the attention to detail. As for the food, each dish was superb with some reminding us the way our mothers cooked for us as child only with a superb finesse exclusive to the chefs in the your kitchen. Thank you for making our visit to Melbourne extraordinary special on this fine dining evening that pleased all 4 palates
Pleasant surprise to find quality food n service.
The duck main and the fish of the day was absolutely fantastic
Fantastic food & wounderful service, great atmosphere
An outstanding restaurant; elegantly served, wait staff well trained and knowledgeable and quality of the food is outstanding! We loved the evening!
Fantastic food drinks and service 😊
I would recommend it to friends as a great night out
We have eaten here twice while visiting Melbourne. On both occasions we’ve had delicious food served by exceptionally professional and helpful wait staff. Highly recommend.
This was a 50th birthday dinner and we were not disappointed. The food was fantastic and only bettered by the service from Francesca who was knowledgeable and gracious. Give her a pay rise!
Visited Cecconi's over the weekend for my wife's 30th birthday. It's a stunning restaurant with real warmth and friendly staff there to look after you. The food was lovely - we had the mushroom arancini balls (the best dish we had), quail, gnocchi with duck ragu & the pappardelle. All in all, a really lovely evening there.
Lovely place - but seafood linguini (which is our favorite dish at Cecconi's) lacked salt and overall flavor...which is a shame.
Perfection! From the lovely service to the food. It was perfect. Thank you to the management and staff!
A lovely place for a special occasion. Limited sitting time is difficult if you want to eat before 8.30pm. Food is lovely but a bit overpriced. Very good service and good atmosphere. Would certainly go back 😊
The staff are so wonderful here, and the food is always fabulous
Food was very good but service average for the price
You cannot fault this restaurant - it is special in so many ways!
I have not been to Cecconi’s restaurant for many years . Surprisingly crowded for a Monday . Service was prompt and efficient.Fish had too much batter but that is a subjective comment
I was only in Melbourne for 24 hours. I had spent the day having some medical tests at the Austin Hospital. My friend Dianne suggested we go into the city for dinner...Cecconi’s looked interesting, so we booked! The rest is history! A wonderful meal and I know we will both be back one day. A perfect end to a very long day . Well done to all the staff for making me smile again 💕💕 ciao 👏👏🇮🇹💕
Cecconi's is just a quality place for food, service and ambiance. A big shout out to our waiter Cossimo, who was friendly and attentive.
Probably the best steak I have had in years. Wonderful wine list and sympathetic service. Thank you very much.
Can't fault this place. Fantastic service and food was just the best. Will be back for sure.
BEST IN MELBOURNE FOR ITALIAN FOOD. STAFF ARE LOVELY
Great food, great service
Great place! We could actually hear each other talk! Food was terrific!! Will def come for business and pleasure!!!!
Very impressed with Cecconi's. Food was amazing & service was great! I only wish we could afford to go more often... special occasion restaurant for us!
Good atmosphere. Could hear easily and had a great meal with fantastic service.
A great birthday luncheon, fabulous food and wine!!
The food and service were excellent. Not enough time between courses, we were too full, too quickly and didn't have room for dessert. It was uncomfortably noisy.
We will however, return because we love the food.
Dined at Cecconi's for a special occasion and it lived up to my expectations for the event. The atmosphere and service was great and it felt authentic. The food was exceptional - the Marsala Apples were incredible for dessert. I would definitely dine here again.
An absolutely beautiful dinner served by wonderful staff. Everything was first class.
Thoroughly enjoyed dining at Cecconi’s will certainly return when we in Melbourne next
fantastic restaurant, the food was amazing and the atmosphere even better.
Food was amazing, everything cooked perfectly enjoyed every dish.
Online I read so much positive about this Melbourne CBD-restaurant - unfortunately it was such a disappointment. Service was so poor, we had contact to several, but not one smile, not one personal word, everybody was in a hurry and seemed so unhappy. This atmosphere was depressing. The food was good, but too expensive. I cannot recommend this place.
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!
