We had a small family group with lots of different tastes and allergies. These guys were fabulous in accomodating everything. And it was all delicious too!
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here before a show at Gasworks. The food was well cooked, beautifully presented with good variety and delicious flavours. The music detracted from the experience as it was too loud, and repetitive and just ‘doof doof’ making it hard to hear people across the table.
Professional service, a range of locations from fine dining to pretty casual, and most importantly high quality Italian cooking at a fair price. Love the gnocchi with ox tail ragu and always try to fit in one of the specials and the cheesy garlic pizza.
Mother’s Day lunch! A great set menu: fresh and tasty. The staff were happy and were so polite and attentive. A really fantastic lunch. Thank u
Party of 6. The young waitress spilled all 6 glasses of drinks on my new Burberry coat, pants and shoes. Apologized and brought tissues however there was no remorse, offer of dry cleaning the clothes or even a free drink. Very very poor service. We all left with the most dusty shoes from the beach sand on the ground of the restaurant.
Thank you guys.. just your pizza dough a bit chewed or not easy to eat, Did not enjoy the base much..
This was our first time and unfortunately the food is not up to standard, everything was just a little off the mark. Table service could be improved.
Ciao Cucina is a great spot for dinner with friends. It is bar service which actually makes splitting the bill easier and has a laid back vibe with a great ambiance and a beautiful setting. The pizza are great and their Aperol Spritz the best around!
Great food and delicious dessert. The courtyard was a lovely spot to sit for lunch.
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.
Loved it! All the good was amazing have already recvomended multiple times, one guest said it was very close the the pizza we had in Rome which was pretty amazing! We'll be back!
Make this your new local favorite! Great food- great venue- great service!
Best food, service and location in port Melbourne. Everyone needs to go.. live music on Sunday afternoon.
