Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went here for a big family dinner, 10 of us. For starters, we ordered garlic bread and olives. For mains, ordered different kinds of pizza, looked yummy, mushroom risotto, ravioli, steak and fish for mains. We were all satisfied and full - noone had...space for dessert. The good thing is that we had s really picky eater snd dhe loved the fish of the day - so we will definitely go back.More

Two couples thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. The food was absolutely delicious and the service provided was excellent. We really enjoyed our meal, the price was a tad expensive for the size of the meal.

We were in Wellington over a Sunday and many restaurants were closed, but we found Cin Cin and decided to give it a try and are we glad that we did. The pizza was excellent, but the Carbonara was outstanding. One of the best that...we have had. The service was prompt and the wine was good. You can't ask for anything more than that!More

We just arrived to Wellington and noticed many of the restaurants were closed on Monday. We found Cin Cin opened and love Italian food. Upon entering we were immediately greeted and seated. The restaurant itself is very warm and inviting. Almost like you were invited...into someone’s quaint home for dinner. This is run by two people, at least the evening we were there. They were very busy so didn’t get a chance to ask their story, but obviously family run and even saw photos of their children. The service was excellent and attentive. Wine was superb with a start of a very fresh and delicious salad. The fired oven pizza was excellent. I lived in Napoli, Italy for a time and it reminded me of the authentic and famous pizza from there. We enjoyed the chocolate mousse and cherry dessert to top off our meal. We were so impressed how hard these two worked and managed their restaurant wonderfully. We enjoyed it so much! Just wish this amazing restaurant was close to our home in the U.S.More

There's a feeling in this place, one that can't be mistaken. It is the relief and joy of finding a home away from home. Cin Cin became that home for us the moment we walked in the door. The lovely staff greeted us with warm...and kind smiles, and we were sat at a comfortable table with no wait. The chef had a kind laugh and the atmosphere felt blessed. The food was absolutely gorgeous and of complete perfection. We had famous dishes that we had of course tried before, but my wife and I were both impressed to find that the quality they serve here is better than anywhere we have tried Italian in our entire lives. We will return in earnest!More

An authentic Italian food in town. I came here with my family and we had a really great talk while dinning. Staffs are friendly and always asked in case you need anything. Looking forward to coming back

I was going to write a detailed review about this restaurant but decided that, as there are many similar reviews with experiences like ours, there is no point. We have been to this restaurant numerous times, with no complaints. We enjoy the ambience and the...food. Our recent experience was something else! The chef/owner clearly loses the plot, on occasions, and looks for a fight. The staff are obviously scared of him. He either needs to employ more staff to help him (in the kitchen) or get out of the business. He is a control freak.More

Superb. All round, it was excellent. Friendly and competent staff, exceptional food (which reminded us both of being in Italy) and great ambience. Faultless. Would highly recommend to all :)

Can’t speak about the food because we’re still sitting here with empty glasses and empty plates after an hour and a half. Pretty disappointed.

We had a fantastic meal here, the wine was amazing and the service superb ... in fact there was nothing that we didn't like. We didn't book and so were very lucky to get a table as most tables had been reserved. Highly recommend.

John and his team were exceptional on the night. Ordered pasta, arancini and the fantastic Panna Cotta - which had John's special touch. Service was excellent and vibe on the night was relaxed and intimate. Highly recommend Cin Cin!

Great location, nice atmosphere and superb pasta dish. Hostess was very bossy, flustered and unpleasant-telling me to be on time and clearing/resetting my table when I went to the loo before I had a chance to order dessert. Its a shame because other than her...it was totally an awesome experience. Maybe front of house is not her skill set.More

Disappointed with menu, website not updated showing limited menu so could not order what we were going to order. Food that was ordered was great as always. Service was very slow. Waited long period between end of main and desert and then desert slow. By...this time not many tables. Again limited desert menu annoying.More
