I used to live in St Kilda and came here all the time, but I had been away for six years. A meal at Cicciolina was top of my to do list and it didn't disappoint, especially as my favourite entree (the blue swimmer crab soufflée) was still on the menu! Fantastic food, service and atmosphere, plus they know how to make a top class dirty martini in the back bar. What more could you want?!

Get there at 6pm as there are no bookings. If you late and unlucky to miss out, have your mains elsewhere and then go to the Cicciolina backroom bar for dessert.

Have frequented Italy more than 5 times, and this place rivals restaurants from the motherland. Atlantic salmon pasta cooked to perfection, warmed olives that transport you to Tuscany, and a soufflé of blue swimmer crab - perfection!

This institution is always great. It is the only place worth visiting in St kilda really. Service, wine and food you really can;t beat it. Staff are absolute professionals without being at all wanky which is lovely!

Great experience here. Firstly on walking in the restaurant has a great atmosphere to it, it felt like a well established business that is successful - and of course it is.

The food on the menu and as dishes of the day all sounded delicious so making a choice was difficult.

Arrive early since they do not take bookings or indeed have a drink at the bar at the back of the restaurant.
