We had a delicious dinner at Cecconi’s with very good service and excellent wine. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because the worn and dirty carpets really need replacing and spoil an otherwise special venue.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
