Cafe e Cucina serves the most delicious, authentic Italian food and wine and is a ‘must’ every time I visit Melbourne. I especially love the Calamari - divine!

Wonderful pasta special of salmon, zucchini and saffron! The wait staff are friendly and obliging. The barramundi was superb. This is a definite neighbourhood gem!

I hadn’t been to this restaurant in many years. It’s aleays been an institution in Chapel St. I was a little disappointed with the food this time. I ordered the linguini de mare/seafood linguini which is baked in parchment paper. It didn’t have a great deal of seafood in it (lots of shells) & was lacking in flavour. I only ate about half of it. Good wine list. Nice ambience. Service is good albeit a little pretentious.

the only criticism is that the tables are very close but acceptable.

Food was amazing and great atmosphere. The service was a bit slow but they were super busy so it was understandable.

Caffe E Cucina even has a secluded balcony available for those who want to spend a little extra for a magical experience. Not only does this place ooze romance, the food, too, gives you the experience of love. Their carefully devised menu covers savoury antipasto starters, creamy and comforting pasta dishes and some spectacular mains. Whether you’re bringing your partner for a romantic dinner for two or coming for an elegant lunch with friends, Caffe e Cucina will make your experience a special one.
