Because Ciao Cucina is here to feed. Italian food doesn’t always follow tradition and as the cheeky younger sibling to Ciao Cielo, Port Melbourne better be ready for a spritz or three.

A fabulous dinner with friends for my birthday. We had a perfect table in the garden and found the food delicious!

Very confusing about which counter to go to for orders. Staff not very efficient Music was extremely loud. Couldn’t hear each other speak. Waitress forgot to bring salt. It wasn’t a busy night so she should not have forgotten.

I had a great experience in the outdoor beer garden. Great music on a Sunday afternoon with delicious $10 Margherita pizzas and 2 for 1 spritzes during happy hour! Perfect spot for birthday drinks!

Had a birthday dinner for my mum and her friends here. Out of 16 people every meal was disappointing and some just horible. One of the servers was only serving attitude.

If your head here for a good meal that’s a big mistake. This is just a trendy happy hour spot to me. Nothing really exciting about food or drinks.

Came here with some friends and stayed for a few hours. Great venue and very casual, great if you want to bring the family too. Food is beautiful, simple Italian. I would definitely be coming back - a great spot for summer!

We were seated adjacent a table of approximately 10 off children who were there for a party, but there seemed very little if any parental control so they just preceded to yell and scream the entire time they were there. It may have been appropriate to offer to seat us elsewhere, apologise for the excessive noise or ask that group to quieten down. It pretty much wrecked our night as we had gathered as work colleagues to discuss our upcoming exhibition and the days sales conference. We couldn't communicate wityh anyone other than those seated next to us due to the noise. In addition, the table service was extremely poor and the waitresses inexperienced. Nonetheless, the food was lovely for which I would recommend. The other unattractive aspect of the venue is where the toilets are situated; it is quite difficult to navigate your way through the restaurant next door to reach the bathroom.
