I booked a table for eight people recently and the restaurant could not have been more helpful. They rang several times to check on details, and when we got there we were put in a separate area out the back. Its seclusion meant that we had a quiet and private space in which to chat and eat. The meals were excellent, as always, and everyone was delighted with the evening. Many thanks, Ecco. See less

Hands down the best Italian restaurant I've been to in Melbourne. The food itself was alien... Out of this world. Ordered the lamb ragu, absolute treat, the lamb was cooked to perfection l, I've never tasted clouds before but I'm sure this was the closest thing. The crab pasta was nothing short of perfection, it was a textual masterpiece along with a deep Labrinth of flavour. Probably the best pasta I've had, having been to Italy before I'm not sure if the Italians do it better there. Big call I know but if you come here you must try the crab pasta. Finally ordered the truffle sausage pizza, amazingly luxurious taste of truffle and mushroom that you know and love but tops it off with a delicate thin base and fluffy crust. Food aside the service was great, friendly staff and very traditional atmosphere, very authentic! If you're looking forward to going to Italy sometime in 2025... Don't wait get down here instead.

Cute place. Super friendly staff. And the food was lovely. The only thing I wish was that my ragú didn’t have so much peas... it took away some of the lovely flavors from the lamb. The burrata was delicious! Overall lovely experience. See less

Chef’s recommendation went down a treat, well paired glass of wine. Watching the pizza oven is a treat. A great refuge on a cold and wet evening. Thanks! See less

Found this place close to where I parked had some beautiful gnocchi for dinner! True Italian style it was flawless! The waiter was excellent bought me out a Chinotto Citrus flavoured on ice with a twist of orange it was superb and perfect with my meal! I opted to sit outside its warm and it really felt very much like Toorak Rd is alive again! Definitely on my favourites list and the Gourmet Pizzas look really tasty! You would not be disappointed with anything on the menu here! 10/10 and great music playing 😀 See less

Italian restaurant serving pizzas and pasta in a romantic semi-fine dining experience. The pasta that we ordered was good but a little expensive. The service is top notch. Might come back again next time to try the pizza. Food - 7 Service - 9 Vibe - 9 Price - $$$$ See less

If it's fantastic quality Italian food that you are seeking, head no further than the amazing Ecco in South Yarra. From it's beautiful but relaxed decor, attentive and knowledgeable service, and outstanding authentic Italian cuisine; Ecco really lives up to expectations. Seated at an elegant table with crisp linen tablecloths and a simple rose decoration, we start with a beautiful rosé and cocktail from the extensive wine list. Settling in for an intimate dinner, we relax and take in the ambience. The restaurant is full, but the noise levels are still low and small groups and couples enjoy their dinners around us. The food menu is so appetising, with a fabulous selection of starters, antipasto, pizza and pasta. We choose to start with an amazingly fresh carpaccio that truly is delicious. Light and simple, the beef is so tender and the squeeze of lemon adds that amazing zing. Our mains arrive quite promptly, and we enjoy a beautifully seasoned crab spaghetti, and a potato and ham pizza. We can view the kitchen from our seats, and a massive wood fired pizza oven is the key to the sensational pizzas at Ecco. The crust is sublime, with the perfect resistance, bite and chew. The topping was salty and crispy, and the cheese was molten and gooey. Truly fabulous in every way. Our pasta was served al dente, with a light and fragrant sauce generously studded with fresh crab. Bellisimo. Even though we were quite full by this stage, we weren't going to turn down the chance for some Italian dessert. A blueberry and almond tart was just the right side of sweet, with a burst of tart blueberries and crunch of almond making this simple dessert so delicious. Our affogato was fantastic, with the addition of Frangelico to give it a truly rich and boozy edge. Presented beautifully, it doesn't get much better than fresh espresso with ice cream. Overall, our experience at Ecco really was fabulous. The attention to detail, friendliness of the gorgeous servers, and the exquisite Italian food really makes a trip to this restaurant really worth it. See less

We went to Ecco for dinner and the restaurant is pretty packed. On the night, we got: - Polpo piccante grigliato (slow cooked octopus) - Carpaccio di manzo (raw beef eye fillet) - Bistecca del giorno (steak of the day) - Gamberi pizza (prawns) - Pannacotta - Affogato con liquore We absolutely love the slow cooked octopus dish, it was perfectly cooked with nice flavour. As for the carpaccio, we would preferred if the beef has some sort of seasoning since it was a bit bland. The steak of the day was scotch fillet which was perfectly cooked and tender. The panna cotta was light, smooth and silky and how they served the affogato was so cute. They also have good range of alcoholic drinks and cocktails. So we got Orange flamingo & Espresso martini which looked stunning and tasted great. Overall, great service and food and nice ambient and just within the walking distance to South Yarra station. Highly recommended this recommended this restaurant if you’re in the area! See less

Hello. imnikki Feb 17, 2020
A stunning balance between fancy and casual, Ecco is a cosy Italian restaurant that is perfect for all occasions. With a focus on using fresh seasonal produce, Ecco is all about letting the natural flavours of the ingredients shine through. Starting off with the delicate and tasty Carpaccio di Manzo, the thinly-sliced raw beef was the epitome of freshness, and the piquant flavour of the baby capers and parmesan punctuate each mouthful. The Polpo Piccante Grigllato featured tender slow-cooked octopus sitting on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes, with the intense nduja and zing from the basil pesto elevating the flavours of this dish to a whole other level. Both pasta dishes were cooked to perfection. The Tagliatelle al Ragu d’Agnello (slow-cooked lamb ragu) was a rich and hearty dish that was comfort food at its finest. The Spaghetti al Granchio was characterised by bright and light flavours that dance on the palate, and was one that I could have finished all by myself. The thin crispy base of the pizza impressed us all, and it’s no surprise seeing that the pizzas all have been cooked in the wood-fire oven that is unmissable once you walk into the restaurant. Truffle and mushrooms are always a match in heaven, and the Tartufata is an absolute must try. I couldn’t resist ordering dessert, and the flourless chocolate cake was a delightful way to end the meal. The fudgy centre is reminisced of a brownie, and when paired with ice cream, it is a dream to eat. A faultless meal from start to finish, dining at Ecco is truly a gastronomical delight. See less
