Lovely ambience, friendly professional service & delicious food. Tables are a bit close together though.

Our family had a great meal, we've been patrons for over 10 years. However a family member had a mouthful with a shard of glass from eating one of the five linguine di mares our table ordered. Fortunately he spat it out, however when it was shown to the waiter and the glass item brought away from the table to be further examined by restaurant staff, the manager later returned to apologise and stated it was a plastic item rather than glass. We understand mistakes are made, but our disappointment was the restaurant being untruthful about the glass found in that one meal. Two other family members confirmed they believed it was glass as it was too clear, shiny and see-through to be plastic. The family member who had that mouthful said it was definitely glass. If the restaurant had just apologised for the glass, this lengthy review would not be here. They did not have to go a step further to state it was not glass but plastic. We still like eating at the restaurant, even if glass turned up in one of the meals, as dinner is always delicious there. But we were very disappointed in the restaurant's reaction to glass in that one meal.

We loved the food and atmosphere but felt the service was a bit over the top but insincere. Waiter constantly tried to up-sell wine which was annoying and failed to mention set-price menu or daily specials which we had to ask for. Probably would not go back.

Consistent great atmosphere superb traditional Italian Cuisine matching wines with the meal is something they do very well, Being going there for years and will continue to do so.

Caffe e Cucina remains one of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne. The food is sublime - in particular the crab pasta and the triamisu are absolute highlights and can't be missed! You will definitely leave happy, from a full stomach as well as from an overall wonderful experience, from the gorgeously romantic atmosphere, to the wonderful Italian waiters! Thanks as always team :)

The low-lit dining room with its intimate two-seater tables and 20th century Euro art is just the place to take your sweetheart for a special night out. 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. Best dish: voglia de mare (Mediterranean-style fish of the day)
