Cireli & Co is authentic Italian restaurant. This cute restaurant tucked in the Albion Street, Brunswick West. The restaurant is pretty hidden and bit a challenge if you come here using public transport; surely, it’s not a problem if you’re using private vehicle as you can easily find the on street parking around this area.

The restaurant has two sections indoor and covered outdoor spot, great spot to spend with family and friends.As soon as we arrived, we’re welcomed by the friendly customer staffs. The customer service was genuinely friendly, nice and attentive.The ambiance and vibe was amazing, perfect spot to bring your date. Drinks is always the way to start;Three Oaks Apple Cider and Herbal Tea - Limonada Rosa, blended with lemongrass, hibiscus and rose petals.

We started with EntrΓ©e; Bruschetta -tomato, basil, oregano and evo oil.It was served in two perfectly toasted bread with the tomato, basil, oregano and evo oil on top of the bread. The taste was balance and not too strong, perfect for your starter dish.

Then Arancini came in served with bolognese ragu and parmesan cheese. The Arancini was perfectly deep fried and wasn’t oily. The taste was rich and balance. It was crispy from outside, but soft and perfectly cooked from inside (rice and cheese). They went well with the bolognese ragu; the mince beef was well-seasoned and not dry. It’s our second entrΓ©e and they’ve given us a great first impression before getting our main dishes.

Special of The Day; Rigotoni Mushroom Ragu. The smell of truffle coming from the Ragu was amazing and surely it would increase your appetite. The pasta was perfectly cooked and well-seasoned. The Mushrooms were still tender, juicy and warm when it’s served.  I reckon, this special dish was amazing; Hope they could put in their permanent menu, so other food lovers can enjoy this dish. The texture of the dish was great.

Risotto Agli Asparagi - asparagus sauce, pancetta and smoked ricotta. It was creamy and very delicious. The risotto rice and bacon were cooked perfectly and served in generous portion. The taste was balance and well-seasoned. It is a simple dish and executed flawlessly by Cireli & Co.

Overall, we had a great experience dine in Cireli & Co and pretty happy to leave there with a full tummy. We even ate it again, later that night cause we got some left from dinner. The owner is a very friendly guy, my friend Laura got very sick during the dinner and he care so much that he emailed to check. That tell's a lot about a guy.
