Good service and good food

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

Lovely lovely time here. Our favourite restaurant as always, and nothing to fault. Brilliant staff, incredible food and perfect atmosphere. Can't top it or recommend it enough.

I only had time for one course, but it was a delicious chicken and pasta dish. The staff were very friendly and helpful and I will return.

We live in the area and went already twice to this Restaurant. The food could potentially do with little less oil and garlic that cover all the different tastes that a real italian dish offers but in general has been ok. The negative point goes for the open kitchen which has a terrible extraction hood, or none whatsover as every... More

We found this restaurant when staying in a nearby hotel. My daughter and I loved all three courses. (Yes very greedy, but it was so good we didn't want to miss out on puddings!).Far, far superior to the chains of Italian restaurants! The service was friendly and attentive. Overall a great experience and I hope to take my husband there... More

Yes enjoyed lovely fresh good quialityy food. We visited on a Sunday evening greeted and seated in a friendly polite way. Drinks and food ordered and then we feasted! The waiter was good although was clearing our starters before my Husband had finished his so I wasn't impressed but otherwise good service.

The food is great here. I had a spaghetti alla vongole and have had pizza in the past which is neopolitan style and extremely good. There was a bread-and-butter-esque hot panacotta dish which was outstanding but I think was a daily special. I also like the range of Italian spirits which they offer as aperatifs/digestifs. We were sat in a... More

Is there something wrong with the Monday night chef? We think of Cibo as our local where we can pop down for a good dependable Italian meal, but this was poor. A small portion of tasteless vegetables for me and over-battered seafood and meagre battered vegetables for James. Very poor.

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.
