“Great atmoshere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I loved this cafe. Quirky menu that was cooked and presented very well. Good wine list that has some unusual wines from around the world. Excellent service from waiting staff that knew their stuff.

“Still solid 10 years later - a St. Kilda gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Having returned to Cicciolina after 10 years, I still found it as delicious and charming as always. The food was solid and the location on Acland Street makes it a great spot for dinner after an afternoon enjoying St. Kilda beach. I would definitely recommend it for solid, low-key Italian food in St. Kilda.

“Great service and even better food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

We came in by chance and were pleasantly surprised by the friendly service and atmosphere. The food was superb and the wine, a Pinot Grigio, was wonderful. To top it all off, the panacotta was gorgeous. Definitely a place to go to!

“Iconic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

The locals in St Kilda like to keep this restaurant a secret. It can be tough to get a table, but to be honest I enjoy having a drink in the back bar while you wait. The bar menu is superb, you could quite easily stay in the back bar and enjoy a delightful evening of fine wines, cocktails and a very satisfying bar menu. If you are flying solo, a seat at the bar and a selection from the bar menu makes an enjoyable evening.
