It has all the appearance of hand-made home cooking and I bought not just a pizza slice, but a loaf of bread for later. Prices are premium, but worth it. It is both a restaurant and a bakery, catering for dine in, take out, and...make at home.More

Visited with my partner and was disappointed in wait time and pasta. We ordered an entree that came in 15 minutes but then waited over half an hour for one pasta and one pizza, people who arrived after us had already left. We ended up...having to leave with our food and missing the start of our movie. The pizza was delicious and the ambience and staff were lovely, the menu seemed great too. The gf pasta was soggy like overcooked ramen and stuck together into one thick blob after 3 minutes. The guanciale was thick and gritty and undercooked, some pieces couldn’t be chewed. Maybe the pasta was this way because it was gf, but I’ve had better elsewhere and combined with the wait time it was an average night. In hindsight I should have sent it back and I’m sure the staff would have obliged.More

Really great authentic, delicious food, every element we greedily wanted more of to devour. Great wines, a hidden gem. Low key decadence and an absolute find. Don't take yours eyes off any plate you share with your partner as they WILL demolish it!

Pizza was quite good although the pasta was a little bland; but my wife liked it so maybe that’s just my taste. Service was good although I think that just two wait-staff for that many people means that they have to rush. Mistakes are bound...to be made if you aren’t adequately staffed. The outdoor area could do with more lighting.More

What a find!! So delicious and tasty. Allergies are easily accommodated. I had one of the best Italian meals ever. Both my partner and I ordered a meal from the specials menu board. Super friendly staff and lovely atmosphere.

This place is beautiful in every way! The food is absolutely delicious, everything is home made and the chef is originally from Italy ;) They were very nice when I asked for special diet request. Also the service is very friendly and they were very...nice with my kid. Highly recommended! We’ll be back for sure!More

I had high expectations of Cirelli & Co given all the positive reviews. The ambience and wait staff were good. The SA cab sav from their wine list was also excellent served in quality glassware and very reasonably priced @ $9/glass. Unfortunately the let down...for me was the food, I ordered the white seafood linguine which was overcooked and the linguine claggy. This was a big disappointment for me :( I guess I could have complained but didn't want to ruin the night for my fellow diners. Based on the linguine I'm afraid I wont be rushing back to Cirelli & Co.More

Cirelli is a great hidden gem of the Melbourne restaurant world! The food is incredible, yes. The Cirelli family is incredible, yes. The atmosphere is awesome, yes. And all of these things together create a very special Restaurant. Italian Cuisine; with great vegan options, fine...wine, delicious meals & superb deserts. I've been to Cirelli many times; recommended Cirelli to dozens of people & will continue dining at Cirelli for that experience that is half-NYC-style, half-Italian-Villa & 100% Melbourne. Thanks Cirelli & sea again soon!More
