Melburnians, you really love your cheese. This year you've tried a 150-cheese pizza, bought buckets of the stuff on the cheap and have entered cheese-fuelled comas in a cheese cave. Now, you can kick off 2019 with another ultra-cheesy experience: a 29-cheese gnocchi.

South Yarra's Cucinetta is the eatery behind the wondrous creation, which it'll be serving up for lunch and dinner from Wednesday, January 2 through to Tuesday, January 15. The handmade potato gnocchi is oven-baked with 29 cheeses sourced from Thomastown's That's Amore Cheese, including buffalo mozzarella, truffled caciotta (a fresh cow's milk cheese), smoked scamorza, blue cheese and salted ricotta.

It'll, fittingly, set you back $29.90, can be enjoyed with one of 29 wines on the regularly changing list, and eaten inside the 29 square metre restaurant. Sensing a theme? Cucinetta really likes the number 29. It also likes breaking world records, which it's trying to do with these cheesy-as pasta.

If you, like us, fancy yourself a bit of a cheese fanatic, you're probably curious as to what the 29 cheeses are. Well, here's the full list:
