Melburnians, you really love your cheese. 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 2020 with another ultra-cheesy experience: a 29-cheese gnocchi.

South Yarra's Cucinetta is the eatery behind the wondrous creation, which it's bringing back for a second year, for lunch and dinner between Thursday, January 2 to Monday, January 20. 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.

Setting you back $34.90, it 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.

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:
