Cecconi’s a swellegant restaurant


Cecconi’s is without a doubt a vision. Just the ticket for a rather special date night with your loved one…. There are two sides to this restaurant a brasserie on your left and on your right the rather gorgeous fine-dining area which is where we last dined. The restaurant is cleverly situated in the basement of 61 Flinders Lane in Melbourne’s CBD. Flinders lane is always lovely to walk around but superb to stroll around after enjoying the following:

To say the scallops were delicious doesn’t really come close — I would say this is one of my favourite servings —of one of my favourite starters….Caramelised scallops, pea puree, prosciutto crisp, radish and baby herbs – Yum, Yum, Yum!!! I had to follow the Seafood linguine with a spicy chilli and garlic sauce with a lovely grating of fresh parmesan on top.

My hubby had the slow cooked beef rib with celeriac puree and some rather out of place over-sized onion rings which whilst tasty was out of place on this rather sophisticated plate . The horseradish gremolata was a triumph and the whole dish came together rather beautifully.

To follow we availed of the interesting dessert tasting plate, which allowed you to try a few of the chef’s delights…one of which was the simply gorgeous deconstructed apple mousse, sponge cake with limoncello, pistachio crumbs and a yummy lemon gelato. Another rather unique dessert on the board was a Ruby grapefruit yogurt with blood orange pavlova, Campari jelly and citrus (gosh you just want to be in a gondola cruising down the canals in Venice whilst eating this).

Deconsructed desserts

Can’t wait to return for another candle-lit elegant supper.
