Cecconi's Flinders Lane
One Hat – THE AGE GOOD FOOD GUIDE
Service outstanding. Restaurant consistently exceptional over many years.
Will be back again and again
Great service and food. Very attentive staff, well coordinated work among waiters. Would highly recommend.
The parppadelle was sensational and would highly recommend it. Service was excellent and so to the ambience.
You never get a bad dinner , always consistently good to great .
Business lunch. Three course. Calamari fritte, oysters, pork belly. Followed by slow cooked pork brisket. Tiramisu, pudding. Couldn’t fault any of it. Expensive wines but extensive list.
We had a fantastic evening at Cecconi's Flinders Lane. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
Great ambience. Service was good. We love our chardonnay and sauvignon blanc by the glass. You only get bread with olive oil, no butter - we did not ask. As for the food, it was a little too salty for us. We initially thought the ched screwed up our linguine seafood with a tad too much salt but soon realised our risotto was also quite salty. It didn't quite hit the spot for us.
Fantastic dining experience. Beautifully located and warm greetings. Ambience is comfortable and true to fine dining. No stark, cold and noise driven environment like so many other Melbourne restaurants. Food was outstanding. Cost is high, but we were happy to pay it for the all round experience. Wonderful restaurant.
Well.... it’s been amongst my favorites for a decade. I just wish I could afford to visit more often!! Definitely after the mortgage is slain!! Thanks Anna and crew!! Must be 30-40 visits? Oysters? Duck? Affogato? Oh WOW!! Maybe it’s just that it’s felt better than home!
You know, we have been going to Cecconi’s for many years and even had staff Xmas parties there. Such a fantastic restaurant. Normally I would give 5 stars for everything, but the waiter we had although professional and not bad and I did leave him $50 tip but it was like he wasn’t interested. Like he’d had a bad day, and it showed there was no passion for what he was doing.
Food, never had a bad meal at Cecconi’s ever I would have to say so the only thing we both felt and it was seafood salmon pasta etc....but VERY salty, like abnormally salty. We both thought and commented to each other.
I have had several business’s so feedback is important.
As l have been to your restaurant before and had exceptional service was a little disappointed this time as was not told about specials and only knew there were some when the table beside us were told .Our main meal came out very quickly after our entree which made the time we arrived till the time we ate our main about 35 minutes!!
Fabulous evening celebrating my birthday with a birthday candle and chocolate to celebrate! The food was wonderful and staff very attentive. Had a great time! We will be back.
Great service, very attentive but not too much. The waiter asked if we had a show to attend after (we did) and made sure they met the time. Food was outstanding!! Beautiful. Number one thing was the recommendation of the Gin from the Almalfi coast was superb! Great restaurant would love to go again!
A lovely treat for my partner's birthday. The food was divine.
We had a beautiful evening! The food was absolutely lovely.
Has been my favourite place to dine for many years. Hadn't been for a few years and was exactly as I remebered. Food was amazing and the service outstanding.
Had a wonderful night, staff were lovely and food was amazing. Best Italian food in Melbourne!!!
I order seafood pasta there wasn’t enough seafood in it . I order the lamb it came cold. Staff don’t do check back on customer very hard to get their attention. Staff doesn’t smile . The food is It’s overpriced best go to IL Barco much nicer experience there to be very honest
Food and wine were great and the waiters were friendly
Food quality was very good, not excellent as some courses appeared to lack some basic seasoning. Ambience is excellent and service is very good, although seemed a bit rushed, as we were only given a one and three quarter hour sitting time. This is frustrating, as it is not cheap, and this is a restaurant you would want to linger and maybe have another drink as it has a lovely feel.
Great for a special occasions, if you can get a 2hr+ seating window, and is at the top of the pricing scale for this type of eating experience.
Very nice restaurant. Waiter was very efficient, food was lovely, except I had marinara and it was a little too salty, but otherwise enjoyed our dinner.
Loved our experience at Cecconi's. 5 star all the way!
As a single female traveler you sometimes feel like a second class citizen. I felt nothing of the sort here. I was seated at a prominent table, nobody repeated the question I often get of are you waiting for someone else etc. the service was impeccable and the food was amazing!
This is an excellent Italian restaurant possibly the best in Australia, in my view. Great food, fantastic wine list, wonderful friendly service and great ambience. Slightly on the expensive side but well worth the money! Will be back.
We come here every time we come to Victoria. THE best Italian going round. Really beautiful food, service is always very good and the wine list is excellent. It just feels like Melbourne when we come here.
A first class experience. The venue is very good, clean, fresh and bright. A good atmosphere.
Very happy with the food, very tasty. The service was outstanding, excellent.
Fantastic food, service and ambience. Will definitely eat there again.
Lovely meal, food was great and service was excellent.
Love it, nice to go to a place that has a wide range of gluten free options.
Very enjoyable evening. Food was very goog and the service excellent. Would be very happy to go there again.
Lovely restaurant, attentive and informed staff. We were seated in a bit of a service thoroughfare, which detracted from the ambience a little - particularly given that we had booked some time ahead for a wedding anniversary. Watch the offer of sparkling water and refills - they are not complimentary. Overall, a good experience though. Staff made note of special eating requirements and meals were prepared accordingly.
Always a great place for a special celebration. The food never disappoints and is always delicious. The chocolate pudding for desert is to DIE FOR! and I have had this every tine I visit (20 years!)
Celebrating my daughter's 21st Birthday i wanted a restaurant that we could look back in years to come and it would put a smile on our faces. Ceconni's did not disappoint. Great service food and ambiance.
Still a great place for a business lunch. Delicious food and broad menu combine with fantastic table service and a quite reasonable noise level to make it a really pleasant outing.
Will be back.
Fantastic food, attentive staff, have never had a bad food experience here. Yes it's a little $$$$, but so worth it. Live a little and enjoy every bit of your experience here- you won't regret it!
While the veal plate was substantial, the fish and the rack of lamb we ordered was very poor in quantity and I was indeed fearful that our overseas guests would leave hungry. It was almost embarrassing to receive more food than them at our table, on our plates....perhaps having plenty of starters is expected, but if we do not know how much (or how little) the portions are for the main dishes, it's difficult to order a good deal beforehand.
Stylish restaurant located down a set of stairs in Flinders lane.
Staff courteous & efficient for a very busy Saturday night.
The decor is plush monotones with comfortable seating (this is important!)
Food very tasty but a little on the expensive side.
Would happily recommend to other diners :)
First class. The best fine dining Italian in the city
The atmosphere, service and food was absolutely fantastic. I would recommend to anyone looking for a place to dine in Melbourne city to try Cecconi’s.
