Great food!

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

Have been going to Cicciolina since the day it opened. I have never been disappointed. The food, wine and the service are always first rate. Old favourites remain on the menu, but get refreshed. The a Oysters, divine, the antipasto a treat, the steak is unreal as is the seafood. Save room for desert. It is a real treat! My... More

This place is a must visit? We had a late lunch and were so surprised at how amazing the food was. Every person at the table was raving about the quality of the dishes. Reasonably priced top quality food. Give it a try!

Cicciolina is a long established part of the fabric of St Kilda. The is and has for many years been extraordinary. Simple flavours expertly created using high quality produce. I can't say enough about the place. The bar at the back is a great place to start. Cyclone does take booking on Sundays so if you don't like to wait... More

Cicciolina does a fantastic martini every time, and the bar food is simple but perfect. This is the St Kilda we locals know and love. Thanks again. And again.

Walked past this one and thought Little Italy. Staff were welcoming and looked after me as a lone diner by not putting me in a corner. They were knowledgable about their food and wine. Rich and inviting ambience.
