you know what you re going to get at Cibo. Solid tasty Italian food at a decent price in a decent atmosphere. For me its sort of interchangeable with Portobello next door, but you could do a lot worse than eat here.

Took my wife for her dinner on her birthday as we were visiting Oxford. We booked the previous day for a1930 table but we arrived a little early for our reservation and were welcomed by the manager who said our table was not quite ready and invited us to take a drink in the bar area. We chose a bottle... More

Went for a pre theatre meal, the staff knew we were going on for a 7.30 start. The food was excellent, good range of well cooked dishes and reasonably priced with a 25% discount for pre theatre meals. The problems arose when our coffee order took ages to appear, when asked to expedite or cancel these the waiter became quite... More

Our table faced into the open kitchen area so we had the added entertainment of super-efficient staff working seamlessly as a team, producing well presented dishes rapidly and with style. Excellent food (risotto pescatora without chilli which I hate, and cannelloni), delicious Nero d'Avola, fresh salads. And such friendly waiting staff. On our list of places to come back to... More

Thank you to all the staff at Cibo last night. We enjoyed a jazz night at The North Wall Theatre in the same street. By the time we arrived at Cibo (our third visit in five weeks !!) they were winding up after a busy Saturday night. However, they made us feel very welcome and served us two wonderful pizzas...

I was recommended this restaurant by a colleague that lives in Oxford. I was looking to take some clients and there wives out for the evening. We had a fantastic meal. The food and service was excellent.Good selection on the menu. Lovely ambiance. If I am ever in the area again I would certainly go back.

We had not been to this restaurant for some time, but we decided to give it another trial for a Sunday supper. It was so bad that it was almost laughable - had it not also been expensive! The service was willing but completely inept; aperitiv drinks were long in coming and the bread requested to eat with them did... More

A long review merits a long response, Mr Tappi. We are happy that yours is a view not shared by the 850 or so customers (some of whom have not only been to Italy but are also, like me, Italians themselves) that we’ve regularly served each week over the last 12 years because, if it was, our business wouldn’t have...

Had an excellent meal here, all beautifully cooked. Would strongly recommend a visit. We had one course and a drink each, cost £24 each worth every penny.

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
