Nice friendly Italian

I visited last night with a large party of friends. Once the staff recovered from the shock of us wanting to move tables so we could sit together we had a great night. Decent modern Italian with lovely chatty staff. Nice puds and my favourite vin santo. Will definitely return

Loved eating at Cibo! I had ordered a sparkling elder flower, and for starters my partner and I had shared bufala mozzarella balls and sundried tomatoes with pesto, with a plate of octopus pieces which i could not get enough of! For mains I had a fillet of beef in a balsamic vinegar sauce and rocket salad with Parmesan shavings.... More

Why go out and eat Italian food when it is so easy to cook it at home? Cibo! has the answer; the pastas and risottos are complicated seafood rich affairs that are too complicated to cook at home. All three dishes were absolutely delicious and reasonably priced for the quality. I want to go back again!

Lovely food, friendly waiting staff and space to sit outside on a sunny summer evening made this a great choice for a meal out during our visit to Oxford. We were staying quite near Summertown, and after a day in the city we were really pleased to find somewhere nearby to have dinner. The food was beautifully cooked and the... More

Never been disappointed by evening meals here. It is a real taste of Italy without being pretentious or over priced. Large selection of Italian wines and beers at reasonable price. the food is cooked in an open kitchen, which looks very clean. The staff are helpful and friendly. Book to get an alcove as seating is a bit tight in... More

Every time I've been, the food has been exceptional. The waiters are very generous and friendly, it's nicely decorated and it's very clean too. It's one of my favourite restaurants

I went with my great niece for diner and I really wonder what happened to this place that used to be nice. Food is really not good and the all restaurant is full of smoke from kitchen I understand why I got a table without reservation.

Our meal at Cibo was fine - food was well prepared, house wine OK and enjoyable, service just as would be expected. There are 'better' options along the same road but Cibo is completely acceptable and reasonably priced.

The choice and quality of the food is run-of-the-mill, no more, no less. The exception to this is the 'fresh' salad sides which come complete with brown curled edges, but the wine tends to be generally reliably slightly better than average. Vegetarians get a raw deal here with the usual risotto (yawn) dish on the menu and no veggie main... More
