The World Loves Melbourne has always considered Cecconi's in Flinders Lane a favourite. We consider Cecconi's to be one of the finest Italian restaurants in Melbourne; featuring rustic honest cuisine with flair, excellent modern ambience, professional levels of service, and a decent wine list.

The World Loves Melbourne was invited to indulge in the snew Winter menu created by head chef Maurice Esposito, along with invited Melbourne bloggers. Having been to Cecconi's 4 or 5 times we accepted the invite without hesitation. This restaurant has evolved over the years, while maintaining high standards of culinary excellence.

Potato and celeraic rotolo, roasted red pepper, wilted spinach, ricotta salad was a refreshing delight. Tangy but also with winter substance of the potato, this was a winning dish.

Soft pillows! Potato gnocchi, wild mushroom ragu is that winter comfort food dish you long for, and which Cecconi's is famous for.

Butternut pumpkin risotto, rosemary, crushed amaretti biscuits is a creamy delight. We enjoy risottos that are warming but not too heavy. This risotto was creamy with the indulgence of amaretti biscuits.

Roasted lamb rump with white bean puree is getting to the heart of winter fare. Cecconi's treats meat with respect and flair.

John Dory fillets, baby carrot, radish agrodolce, crisps, crustacean dressing. We also feel Cecconi's excels when it comes to seafood, and John Dory fillets is a wonderful rustic dish.
