    Superb service, food and Ambiance. A fine Italian. I'm not sure how the 36 hour brisket is Italian, but God I wish I'd ordered it. Menu envy.

    Amazing dining experience. Food was fresh, full of flavour and instantly on our table. Wait staff were attentive and friendly. We were here for an anniversary meal and it lived up to our expectations and more.

    A very big thank you to Anna and her team at Cecconi’s for a delicious lunch. Four courses of perfectly presented and prepared food proved to be an unexpected confinement social highlight accompanied by zoom family connections. Given all the circumstances, it will be a lunch to be fondly remembered.

    My brother and I got a last minute reservation here after giving up on our two hour wait for Chin Chin on a Friday night and were so happy we did. The staff are friendly and attentive and the meals came out quickly and were simply amazing. We had oysters that were so incredible.

    One of the very best Italian restaurants, restaurant atmosphere is great, service is also very good, try the tiramisu!

  • 5Ankit S. 1 year ago
    Tucked away in Flinders lane is this gem of a restaurant. Did'nt expect it to be so large given the location. However, as soon as you step in , you realise you are in for a treat. Service is quite efficient and food and ambience are great. Recommended. The Beef Carapaccio is quite good.

    Went here for some breakfast... the susage was amazing... i asked for scrambled but ended up getting poached eggs but so glad i did... it was sooooo good. I have them marked for dinner so will definitely try it out... definitely on the pricy end but totally worth the quality, quantity n taste.

    A group of us went to Cecconi's last night, the food was absolutely amazing. The service from Ben was fantastic. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Can't recommend this place enough! Thanks Ben for being so great and helping Vanessa celebrate her birthday in style.

    Beautiful and delicious food, great service. Only downside is that it's very noisy in there when the restaurant is full.

    Very classy restaurant and the ambience is amazing. The waitress was so friendly. Food tasted good however a little bit too expensive for that.

    Good food, but a bit expensive. A fancy place, so if that is what you are after I can recommend it.

  • 4Dolores K. 1 year ago
    Excellent and fresh food for a high end restaurant. Service was great but they rushed us to order for unknown reasons despite arriving at our booking on time. Everything else was perfect though.

  • 3Sarah C. 1 year ago
    The food and wine were good. Well seasoned and cooked. However the service does not quite match the food quality. Found the wait staff did not seem to engage with customers. As you are paying over $50 per person here you expect attentive service. No smile or greeting, almost as if we were an inconvenience to them. Overall not worth the price due to the service.

    I have wanted to try Cecconi’s for such a long long time, but was also scared of the prices here! It’s so expensive ? We got escorted to our seats by our matrie’d and he was so snotty! Throughout the meal, whenever he serves us it’s like he just wanted us to get out of here cos we are not ladies who lunch or wealthy businessmen in suits. When he gave us the bill he basically gave us a curt thank you and that’s it, didn’t even look us in the eyes or smile. We got a basket of bread, for two people we got 3 pieces of bread?! Are we supposed to fight over the last piece? We ordered a scallop entree to share. The scallops were beautifully cooked and plump, really delish, although my friend felt the accompaniment of smashed peas and mint was a bit meh. My friend had the salmon and prawn ravioli with sea urchin sauce. The sea urchin wasn’t very pronounced but my friend thoroughly enjoyed the dish. My squid ink seafood linguine is a bit of a hit and miss. The flavours are so beautiful and the pasta was cooked perfectly, however some of the seafood like the scallops and mussels, whilst fresh, were over cooked, shrunk and tough. We shared a mushroom side dish which was generously portioned and had such deliciously earthy flavours I couldn’t help but kept shoveling more mushrooms into my mouth even though I was quite full by this stage. All in all, I felt like it’s extremely expensive to go to a restaurant that looks down at you, with food that isn’t cooked to near perfection. $67/pp without wine

    Went to Cecconi’s as a group for dinner. The food was amazing however service is extremely poor. We had to ask for menus and that took 10+ minutes to obtain. No drinks menus were given to us and had to be asked for. We had to wait roughly 15minutes before someone came and took our order. No staff came to refill our glasses from our bottle of wine. After we completed main courses we weren’t even offered dessert menu, in which we had to ask for specifically again! Then when it came to settle the bill the server seemed annoyed that we didn’t leave any tips!

    I'm giving two stars to this place for how the restaurant looks and for the attentive nature of the waitstaff, even though they hardly smiled. That aside, the food was BEYOND average. I ordered the seafood linguine at $38 (the entree portion) to get a plate with one prawn on it, a piece of salmon the size of half my pinky, some other fish, 2 clams, 1 mussel. That's it. The dish had very little flavour but a lot of olive oil. My partner had the beef and pork ragu and said it was ok. The zucchini flowers and arancini balls were good but the worst part was the $30 cannoli we were hoping would be heavenly, that turned out to be the worst cannoli experience ever. Either they over fried the shell or had tried to add their own bitter, citrus twist to it was so hard to bite into and tasted terrible! I had booked this restaurant for my partners birthday hoping it would be an incredible experience over the other highly recommended Italian restaurants and was so disappointed. Will certainly not be returning.

    For the price I thought the service and food quality was pretty ordinary. I remember coming here years ago and thought it was brilliant. Things have really slipped. Still a great ambience and decent portion size however lacking flavour and sophistication. Wait staff were amicable.

  • 2Jennifer L. 1 year ago
    I enjoyed the food (when they do come out) however not happy with the service. Felt some waiters are racist and ignore my attention when required because they attend other people before our table.

    My partner and I were given a voucher and consequently dined in on Friday night. Although the food was nice, we feel the prices they charge do not much the quality of food or experience. We were charged $5 for a glass of water (still and sparkling). The Caprese salad side was $26 - by spending that much we expected higher quality produce whereas we felt the tomatoes were akin to something you'd get from Coles. We ordered the prosciutto as an entree for $32.00 - we were given 4 thin slices of prosciutto and one ball of bocconcini. Considering this is a dish that requires no preparation or cooking, we thought the price was excessive. Most disappointingly, we ordered entrees and mains and were out within an hour - food came out far too quickly and seemed they were eager to get us out. Definitely not what you would expect for $135 per head. Our experience at somewhere like Cutler & Co which has comparable prices was that of a much higher quality experience all round.
