Living in St.kilda I've eaten here many times now and I've enjoyed each and every meal. Fantastic service and great ambiance. I would recommend this place to any one looking for a special night out!

Amazing food in a cool but understated atmosphere...just great....the only issue I had was the waitresses touching my shoulder.....which I found over stepping the job and bordering on flirting(it didn't work as im gay)...and the constant harassing/pushing of drinks...to the point that one waitress approached my table twice and tapped the drinks menu and even had the cheek to say...I...

Just had the most amazing meal. Scallops, eye fillet and bombe Alaska. Cannot fault the amazing staff, they made a excellent meal, an incredible experience. My new favourite.

I visited in the recommendation of a colleague and the restaurant did not disappoint! The food was excellent (I had the risotto) and service was good as well. Great ambience and wine list. Excellent place to stop and get away from the hustle bustle of Ackland Street.

Cicciolina is a very popular restaurant in Acland st St Kilda. You can't book so it's 1st in best dressed but you do get great food & service! They have an intimate little bar to have a pre dinner drink if you need to wait for a table!

Friendly service, happy to separately seat our large group, lovely to the kids. Food was great, happy to accommodate dietary requirements. The bread and butter are divine! Funny thing to say I know but it was, and we aren't big bread eaters! The rib eye? Was melt in your mouth perfectly done "blue". Yum. My fillet steak ? Was a... More

Cicciolina - the only place to enjoy a diverse range of sumptuous specials and signature dishes infused with fresh ingredients, contemporary yet earthy offerings, Cicciolina is an institution of Melbourne's restaurant scene for a reason. As always, the consistently high standards of food and exemplary service draws me back regularly. My only challenge - settling on competing dishes offered on... More

This is the third time we have eaten here and the last two times were great. Went on a Wednesday night late June and shared the duck parfait on toast was very nice. We had the wagu beef and was so tough it was inedable. Really disappointing for $40. We also had the fish and it was over cooked and... More
