Absolutely the best Italian for lunch in St Kilda. The spaghetti Vongole and blue swimmer crab soufflé are to die for. The restaurant is small and can feel cramped when full, but its worth it for the food and service

Cicciolina has been around for ages. It serves fine dining with prices to match. Good place to catch up with fiends or take mum for lunch

Had lunch at Cicciolina and it lived up to expectations. We had hapuka cooked with mussels and couscous. It was delicious. My husband had venison which was very tender.

Great food and location. If you feel like a more relaxed setting, go to the back bar of the restaurant. Worth a visit.

Ate here on New Year's Eve as a group of eight. The meal was very good with two choices for each course, and a glass of quality sparkling per person. Really enjoyed my meal. Service very friendly and attentive. Recommended.

St. Kilda
St. Kilda is an iconic beachside suburb and one of the
most culturally and economically diverse of
Melbourne’s neighborhoods. It is a traditional haven
for musicians, artists and writers, drawn to the
European ambience and fresh ocean breezes. At night,
it can have an edgier side, but by day, it features a
relaxed vibe – the market stalls, boutiques and
outdoor bars display St. Kilda’s easygoing attitude.
