All i can say is this restaurant is still one of the best in town. Consistency in food and service brings us back, time and time again. Not living in Australia any longer, i was very excited to return to Cicciolina on a recent visit and gobble up my absolute fav dish the baby chicken. Washed down with a great Pinot Gris, another perfect evening in a perfect setting...as always will keep coming back for years to come..

Delicious Italian food using fresh seasonal ingredients. The sides of cauliflower, pomegranite, almonds and currants along with the brussel sprouts in duck fat and lardons were wonderful. The crab souffle was to die for. Cheerful, attentive service and a nice wine list. We sat on the window---so good people watching too.

Consistently high quality, bustling and lively eatery on Acland Street in the heart of St Kilda.

Cicciolina has food to die for. It's that simple. The guys here really do get Italian cuisine - exceptional ingredients, simply prepared with a minimum of fuss and a maximum of flavour.

One thing to note: Cicciolina don't take bookings, so it's pot luck if you get a table or not. You can show up and put your name down then head to the back-bar for a drink to wait, but it could be a long wait as this is a very popular place with both tourists and locals.

I love everything about Cicciolina's. We have been eating here for 14 years, the food is always fantastic, as is the staff, atmosphere & bar out the back

Consistently good food at reasonable prices. Casual and easygoing. I think this restaurant is the best food on Acland Street and a great way of getting to know this street of eclectic tastes and the St Kilda scene
