    My first visit. Pre booked, when I arrived I was told I am seated outside, I have 2 young kids and asked to be seated inside, was told sorry - density quotas means we can’t have too many inside (5:30 booking) it was next to empty when I arrived but full inside when I left. Not thrilled obviously. Food was ok, though for the price you pay, I was disappointed. The wrong dessert given to my children, so the manager had to be involved to get the correct items. Overall for $120 spend, without drinks I was left disappointed and will try some where else when on Lygon street.

    The atmosphere was very cosy, remind me of a restaurant in Italy. Waiter was super friendly. Other guests food looked magnificent but I think it’s a tad overpriced! But you need to experience Criniti’s yourself. This is my own opinion.

    Initially thrown by the mixed reviews but came anyway to spend our Yums points because there weren’t many to choose from. Despite having received booking confirmation from The Fork as well as Criniti, they couldn’t find our booking when we arrived. They managed to squeeze us in anyway, which was a relief given we have a young child with us. Service was nice as far as we could tell, I think throughout the night we were served by 3 different people and all were nice. The food are very overpriced for what they are, although the servings were generous. We had burger and pasta. They taste ok, pasta was on the oily side. Would we come back and pay full price? Hmmm unlikely.

    The food was mediocre and the pizzas had soggy bases. One meal which was ordered first was forgotten and was only made after we questioned where it was. Staff were very polite but we will not be dining here again. Thankyou

    I was very much looking forward to coming here after a colleague highly recommended it and although my meal was lovely (veal funghi) and generously sized, my wife's veal saltimbocca was not pleasant (salty AF) The kids cheeseburgers was another level again of inedible. Any chef/cook who thinks that it's acceptable to pass off this massive hunk of dried and awful tasting meat patty between a burger bun with cheese needs to go back to culinary school - kids aren't dumb when it comes to taste. That aside I'm sure they make many good meals but avoid anything with mince meat if this is the standard.

    The food was absolutely beautiful. The service was excellent. Food came quick considering it was quite busy. The whole family loved it. Would definitely go again

    I had food poisoning. I cannot believe!! This is the third time. The change of ownership should of resolved this issue. My guest and I are suffering acute abdominal cramping and vomiting.

    This is first visit to Criniti's. The food was good, hot and large serves. However I felt the prices were a little inflated due to the basic content being rice, pasta or pizza. My adult son did mention that tables etc were a little sticky. Taking into account COVID-19 restrictions, I felt the actual cardboard Menus should be replaced due to dilapidated state. Other restaurants ensure plain new paper menus are issued for EVERY diner. improved

    Dined for dinner. I ordered the chilli rice prawns. They were tasty with a good level of chilli & 12 prawns. Hubby ordered pizza & enjoyed it. We shared the choc pudding which took over 30 mins to come out & it wasn't very hot in temperature. We had to eat it so quickly as our parking was about to expire.

    Table reservation was at 8 we arrived at 7:45, got told we didn't have a reservation and had to prove it, proved it and then was made to sit for half an hour before we even got a table and the only reason we did was because I became a Karen

    Booked a reservation for 8pm and was told upon arrival that we had to wait in the line regardless ( defeats the purpose of having a bookings system ), finally got seated at 9pm ( so waited an hour EVEN with the booking made ). For the wait to food wasn’t that nice and the service wasn’t at all impressive

    Okay - I’m one person who ALWAYS tries to see the good side of all things. My experience at this restaurant was disappointing. I wish to add that I spoke to the Manager and told him I’d give negative feedback. He was apologetic but I’m not sure it was genuine - soon you will see why. I booked for 6pm - as soon as we arrived we were greeted with ‘you have an hour and a half’. I mentioned I was unaware of this but agreed all the same. Fifteen minutes passed before we ordered. Food came reasonably fast but with a reminder of the 90 minutes exit time. I think this was because we couldn’t decide which wine to buy - glass only. Upon ordering I told the waitress that we would order entree and a drink and go elsewhere for dinner as we now had less than an hour left. She was happy with that. After a while of being watched like we were going too slow I asked to speak with the manager.. The manager was apologetic and offered us (on the house) dessert. I said that it was nice of him to offer but that we would go past our allocated time if we stayed for dessert. He agreed and we left. Token customer service - all about numbers through the door - many other restaurants in Carlton to choose from. Disappointing- please go elsewhere. Bruschetta was nice though - perhaps ask if you can stay for two hours ???

    Food was really tasty. Gnocchi were scrumptious according to my friend. My pizza was great. The only issue I had with the pizza was that it came with hot salami but the description didn’t say hot salami it only said salami. I had to pick off the salami because I don’t have hot salami. The venue was really nice but the toilets were atrocious disgusting putrid. I can’t believe that they weren’t cleaned all night.
