Pizza bland/we added our own salt, premade Tiramisu / worst I've tasted mostly cream/not enough of other ingredients so left most of it, friends deserts too sweet (too much sugar) all served in glasses @ $12 each poor value.

Best thing was the company of friends and 1 bottle of wine.@ $38.

They won't be open long with below average food and service / too many quality restaurants for them to survive unless they make changes. Dirty plates, waited 15 minutes for our bill and deserts served at different times. They were not busy.
Masking take covering parts of stools.

Tasmania has fabulous food and service,
Ciuccio does not, they need to grasp the basics. Give it a miss and go to Maldinis or Cargo or many other of Tasmania top class eateries.

Love this place. I have been a handful of times since moving to Tas recently and this restaurant has a great menu, food tastes good and is real value for money. I love the two French waiting staff and their friendly service. Love their accents - nice little European touch. I note the consistent negative reviews on this place and some by the same reviewers and I have heard it through the grapevine that a couple if previous staff have a personal vendetta against the new owners - so sad. This place is worth the visit.

A total embarrassment to Salamanca, Hobart and Tasmania. Very average food and appalling service. A definite nominee for worst service in the world.

We returned here after a fabulous experience the previous December to be very disappointed. Incredibly slow service, poor quality food, poor wine list, inexperienced staff, freezing cold with doors wide open and no heating. Pasta butchered, seasonal veggies appeared pre-cut/frozen and not seasonal, veal chewy, chicken pasta oily and chicken was dry. Waiter, although friendly, could not identify meal he was delivering! Really sad as previously fantastic and was looking forward to it. Won't return.

The manager yelled at us when we complained that the food service is slow. The pizza is salty, and the oyster tastes wired. Never waste your time on such a poor restaurant! Will totally ruin ur vacation mood and your impression on Tasmanian people!
