Our restaurant has a bustling, dim lit, and intimate atmosphere. Enjoy your meal downstairs near the Bar, the constant coming and goings of our waiters and the sound of the occasional ‘ciao bello/a!’
If you prefer to have a feel of the emblematic Chapel Street, then the outdoor area (al fresco) is perfect for you. Alternatively, our upper floor is ideal to host larger groups. Finally, for the ultimate romantic Italian dinner consider our exclusive Romeo e Giullieta balcony*, perfect for anniversaries, engagements or birthdays (bookings are essential).
*Please note that a minimum spending applies to book the Romeo e Giullieta balcony.
Caffé e Cucina opened August 16th 1988 as a class culture café recreating the great cafes of the cities of Milano, Bologna, Firenze & Roma and since then, has consistently achieved high acclaim in its contribution to the definition of ‘cafe culture’ in Australia.
Twenty years ago we opened our doors with the clear and ambitious intentions to provide great traditional Italian food, attentive service and all around consistency… Today, we pride ourselves of constantly achieving those goals and keeping alive a ‘little piece of Italy’ in Melbourne.
