A really high quality italian restuarant that has been around for many years. The style is traditional italian, but they are innovative with the ingredients and execution.
Dishes are presented beautifully and service is impeccable.

Nice cafe/restaurant situate along Chapel Street, we popped in one night for a coffee and dessert and found to be satisfactory.

Next time I am keen to have a meal, as the menu looked quite appealing

We walked in without a booking wanting a quick meal before going to the movies. We were kindly shown to a table. The attentive waiter suggested an Italian wine which was really lovely and we ordered our meals. It all went south as soon as Nathan Buckley and his wife were shown to the Juliet Balcony for dinner. I think every waiter in e upstairs dining room were helping to get them seated. It was ridiculous. Needless to say the service from then on was completely non-existent! Such a disappointment and a dampener on our evening. We even had to hunt down a waiter to get the bill. As a result, we won't be going back in hurry.

We recently relocated to Victoria, and have been searching for an intimate restaurant with fabulous service and a delicious menu. Well our search is over. Have been 4 times in as many months and the service is always impeccable, the atmosphere fabulous and the food... The food is divine. Caffe e Cucina is our new favourite restaurant of all time. Thank you for sharing your love with us.

I had lunch here during my visit to Melbourne. Lovely location on Chapel Street. The staff were friendly and the food was great. This restaurant is also popular with the celebrities.

This used to be a top place to hang out especially because it was open till late but now the cakes are horrible and not fresh. Real disappointment. The place needs renovations.

good place, predictable menu though. Wine list was good although a bit pricey. Shame it's on Chapel St but apart from that, all good! would recommend

We had a girls brunch at Caffee Cucina e Bar earlier this week. The menu was pretty typical, except for the sweet ricotta on toasted turkish bread with honey and cinamon- yummo! I was alittle dissapointed by the size when it first arrived, but it was quite rich and I was barely able to finish it in the end.

Approximate cost: $8

I've been eating here since 1999. The place has a fabulous vibe with dark panelled walls, low lighting, waiters in long white aprons etc. The food is fabulous too. I've eaten here a number of times as a solo diner, and always been made to feel welcome. It is busy, noisy and the tables are close, but that's all part of the fun. Remember to order campari for an authentic Italian experience
