What a fantastic meal. Both meals looked impressive and we devoured them. So impressed and it's definitely where I'll be going for my birthday

Nicely done out modern seating and clean and airy. Pretty good range of dishes on the menu at reasonable prices. Waiter happy to advise about the menu. Tempura fried sea food was generous and done perfectly, my wife's aubergine dish was also very tasty, the kids pizzas were competent rather than amazing but finished off in short order. It was...

We stopped here at the suggestion of someone from our hotel and just not impressed. Food portions were fine but it overall lacked in taste - pretty boring pasta dishes for both of us.

An evening in Summertown with family a mixture of experience of food and service . My chicken dish and two other dishes were fine however my partners carbonara was bland and tasteless. Which is surprising as we were in an Italian restaurant and she was the only one who ordered an "Italian" dish. So in summary if you're an Italian... More

We visited this restaurant for coffee around 4 pm on a Saturday. From other reviews I had read, it appeared that visiting the place for coffee alone was quite acceptable. Anyway, when we entered we asked the manager to be seated. We specified that we wanted coffee alone at which point of time, the manager asked us to be seated... More

Had a lovely meal. Reasonable price good and good quality, although the soft drinks were over priced for the size. Will definitely come back again though.

Another nice evening at Cibo! Service was helpful, even replaced a dish I wasn't 100% happy with and the replacement was perfect! Delicious starters, the prawn and Bortolli bean soup and the pumpkin ravioli, nice mains too and good pudding (Creme brûlée and tiramisu). Nice buzzy atmosphere for a fri night. Highly recommend.

Little perfect place. The service is bad , there's so much to be said. ... serving the wine , serving the food , etc. The waiting staff is at an amateur level. In some places of the world announcing one thing and serving other it's crime here apparently not. There was no smoked mozzarella no parma ham, the bored potatoes... More

Tables too close together as they have tried to cram in too many customers. Food on the greasy side - salad capresse was running in oil. Bread not provided on the table as had to be bought as a starter. Felt hurried as we waited for all our party to arrive. OK food but not as good as it should... More

I took my teenage daughter for coffee one afternoon. A glorious summer's day where we could sit on their patio. She had a hot chocolate and I had a mocha, and I'm amazed to note that it was the best mocha I'd had in ages (amazed because I rarely am taken aback by a good coffee). There was such a... More
