We had never eaten here before, we've been missing out. Being local sometimes you don't try new places and stick with what you know. We were well impressed with the food, the staff were great and we were well looked after. Do book ahead as it is a busy restaurant.

This place was almost fully booked on Sunday night. We just walked in and were given a nice seat. The wait staff are excellent and attentive. It is situated on the second level with tables for two (maybe also for four) on the balcony. The place had a little bar to wait if you needed to and the ambience of... More

We enjoyed our evening here. Pleasant ambience, good service and good food. More specifically, we had the best ciabbata of the trip so far - delicious wedge of tasty bread - and if the gnocchi didn't quite live up to expectations, it was tender and tasty. Prices average compared to our other Port Douglas eating experiences: North Qld has me... More

I was really looking forward to this meal as the restaurant looked fab from outside and the menu looked good too. We hadn't booked a table and were made to feel that we were very lucky to get one despite the fact that people arrived without booking throughout our visit and all got tables. The food was average, I had... More

Thank you for your review although I am more than a little bemused by it. If you want a salad we have 4 to choose from. I'm not sure what pasta your husband had but greasy is how I describe ' bad fish n'chips'. Some of our pastas are finished with EVO oil imported from Italy, certainly not greasy &... More

We had walked past this restaurant a few times and it always looked busy and the menu looked good. Don't let this fool you, the food is bang average and very over priced for what your get. The food was greasy and tasted like it had been frozen. The service was shocking no one asked how the food was, so... More

Hi, Thanks for your review although it's difficult to understand as you make basically no description of what you ate. As for the service being shocking this is something that we do not here often too which I would be very concerned if we did. there is a reason why we are so busy every night as you saw, we... More

We dined recently at Bel Cibo as a table of four and enjoyed entrees, mains and desserts. The staff were attentive, and the food was fantastic. Between the table we enjoyed the calamari, bruschetta, pizza, chicken fillet main, pasta and flour less chocolate cake for dessert - all of which were very well received. The chicken fillet main served over... More

Seafood tasted fresh and salty and the pasta was well cooked. Good range of options. Can be very busy so it might be a good idea to book.

Excellent! Walked by loved the menu. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by a friendly barman and waitress who set our table for us. We ordered 2 entrees to share of antipasto and scallops and were definitely not disappointed. Along with a lovely bottle of Rose we left very contented. Great atmosphere overlooking Macrossan Streets relaxed holiday makers.
