Stopped in here for dinner this saturday with some work colleagues, we had around 5 different waiters, some just shoved the food on the table without even exchanging eye contact. The menu is extremely misleading with prices of beer listed as a "pint" but then the waiter informed us that the price was just for a bottle, so we ordered... More

Two of us had lunch here today. I ordered main portion size aubergine parmigiana costing £11.50. When it arrived I asked if they had sent the starter size by mistake, but was assured it was the right one., This was a very small square, which in no way provided a main dish - and we only had time for one...

I was disappointed to see that you decided to write a poor review of us following your visit. Customers often have different expectations of portion size and try to maintain a balance of price and quantity and it would appear we did not meet the mark for you this time. You don't however mention that we offered you an additional... More

We had a very enjoyable pre-wedding meal at this restaurant which included a wonderful antipasta and a tasty risotto. Everyone round the table mentioned what delicious food they had and the only slight issue was that the waiting staff were a little slow, nothing else. Incidentally the house wine was tasty as well.

Super food, super pasta, pizza and seafood. Almost ordered too much food. House wine is great value. Service excellent and atmosphere busy yet serene. We liked watching pizzas and food being prepared (and a decent space between us and the next diners, the kitchen). Nice surprise to find this place close to our accommodation in Summertown. You won't be disappointed... More

Similar to earlier review we also had perhaps the same shy(?) waiter who spoke very little to us. We had been looking forward to our meal as it was our anniversary. Both elements of our starter were wrong and our floater coffee was just a white coffee, but we were assured that was how it was meant to be when... More

We were a party of four who had booked a table for Saturday, 16 August. The restaurant was very busy but our waiter took the time to discuss the menu, take the order and the bring the freshly cooked food . It was absolutely superb as was the service. We would all highly recommend Cibo's. -A great atmosphere too!!

Not too busy which was nice. Waiter was hard work... Not very chatty but perhaps just shy. Food is not too bad cost wise but beware a Peroni cost £5.25! However when the food arrived it was absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant for the must wonderful Italian food. My husband had the chicken and I had the... More

Great service outdone only by the excellent food. There's no place I'd rather go with family, friends or colleagues. The risotto pescatora is particular is excellent.

Had a last minute lunch here. Ordered the Capra pizza. Delicious but had difficulty in cutting the thin-based pizza with the cutlery. Woulkd have been better is the chef had cut the pizza into slices before serving.

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
