Great lunch

Had lunch with friends, really enjoyed the food and friendly service. The grilled fish platter and pea /ham ravioli were our favourites. Good desserts too. We'll be back

Visited with my husband for his birthday. We ordered focaccia with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for starters. The oil was really poor quality, yellow and completely without flavour. When we asked for a better oil our waitress gave us exactly the same only only served in a bottle. The focaccia was simply dull. I wondered if perhaps Cibo buys... More

As a coeliac, i struggle greatly to find places where i can eat, but their menu jumped out at me, as all over dishes were clearly marked as gluten free on the menu, even saying their food is coeliac suitable, which is a hug deal. I hadn't eaten all day, and went there with my partner and her parents, a... More

Dear 316 Desisa, We are fully compliant with the new allergy legislation and only mark our menu dishes as being gluten free when they are just that. As a result, while we take your review seriously, it presents us with a bit of a problem in that it doesn’t mention what you ate here, nor when, so we have no... More

I visited with my family, the kids loved the pizza but my husband said a domino pizza would have been better. Still, the gnocchi was amazing as was the tirramasu. A lovely family friendly place with average food...except for the desert which was by far the best I've has in years.

Family and I very much enjoyed our meal at Cibo. Absolutely great service, very friendly. We are all vegetarian and were pleasantly surprised by all of the great vegetarian options. They even accommodated my mother and made her a pasta off the menu. There's a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant also. Keep it up guys!

Our party of four were shown to our table and we duly ordered. We had recommended this restaurant to our friends because we had visited it several times in the past and we were there to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Our starters arrived which we all enjoyed. It was the Main Course that was such a disappointment. I had ordered... More

The tone of the evening was set almost as soon as we arrived . We were shown to a table in the middle . I asked a waiter if we could move to... More

I went with my boyfriend for a Valentine's Day meal. Service as soon as we arrived was excellent. We were given menus and offered drinks and nibbles. We both had a 3 course meal with wine which came to a reasonable price. The lobster ravioli and tiramisu were amazing! Would definitely go back.

Generally a pretty good meal had here recently. Waiters were a little slow in coming over and asking what we wanted to drink after 15 mins I asked them if we could order Drinks. Starter was Mozzerella with Pesto which tasted good but the Mozzerella has been Frozen and was still a little Frozen and hard to bite in to... More

I am pleased to hear that your overall experience was a positive one here at Cibo! Just to let you know we never freeze our mozzarella and it is a top quality fresh product that is flown in from Naples every week - so I am not quite sure why yours was too cold! Apologies for this error, we are... More
