We have eaten here twice now in the last few weeks and we have been really impressed both times, the menu changes regularly and the choice of food is really good, the seafood and steaks were brilliant and the baked Parmesan starter was gorgeous. Lovely to sit outside when the weather is nice, service good and they are happy to... More

My mom took me and my sister today to il "Cibo" and I must say (not because I'm Italian) that the pizza was horrible. Just to say we were the only customer in the all restaurant.I asked if the ham was Italian ham and in my opinion it really wasn't. The pizza base wasn't good at all, to the point... More

Ordered an American Pizza, Salad Verde and a pasta dish. Pasta dish was okay. Salad Verde was very nice with roasted courgette and a balsamic dressing. However the Pizza was superb. When it was cut in the middle, you could hear the crunch, as was every other piece. Definitely recommended!

I think 3 and a half points would be more accurate. We were a large group and the service was friendly and discreet. The gazpacho was delicious, but the main was less so. I had asparagus ravioli and it was a little too al dente, a tad cardboardy. I'd also suggest to the restaurant that they add ceiling fans, as... More

Friendly service, and good atmosphere, especially as it was a Monday evening. The pasta was great, and the sauces lovely and fresh. Thoroughly recommend.

We had a great night out with friends at Cibo but I have to say the food was disappointing and overpriced. My husband had crab ravioli and it turned out to be squid ink ravioli which he hates but it did not say this on the menu. It was chewy and average tasting. His bruschetta was also hard and unappetising.... More

Went there for dinner this week with my wife for a nice dinner. Food was very average, we both took pizzas and a side salad. The pizzas were very dry, hard to cut, yet the dough on the top was soggy and the sauce not very tasty. I took the meaty pizza and the meat was very dry. a very... More

Onion allergy, nightmare for me as well as chefs! It is the penultimate in test for restaurants. Is it going to be bone dry steak, frites and salad with no dressing? Not at Cibo. Not only was my fish dish delicious, but also the staff very understanding and friendly, even after I had send the dish back after discovering some... More

A last minute decision to take a chance to get a table at this popular North Oxford trattoria was the perfect mix of informality and good food. We were well served in an unfussy way and the food was delicious and plentiful and the Peroni nice and cold!
