We managed to get a table at the last minute without booking and were seated straight away. The wait staff were very attentive and our orders were taken quickly. We both had garlic bread to start glowed by veal scallopini. The bread was delicious, fresh and not too garlicky. Whilst the veal was nice, there was not a lot of... More

Thank you for your review. You are quite right, we are not cheap, however we are not expensive, we offer good products. I never call a supplier asking for the cheapest of anything & that is reflected in the prices we charge. I do wonder sometimes with comments such as yours. When a meal costs $34 what do you think...

We wanted a nice lunch beyond the general café experience. I suggested bel cibo having eaten here last year having celebrated a very special occasion. I'm a fructose malabsorber and the waiter ensured all food was safe for me to eat (I can cope with small amounts of bread). I enjoyed sharing the warm ciabatta with evo oil, balsamic vinegar... More

We had a delightful family lunch at Bel Cibo sitting out outside on the balcony overlooking the main street. My husband and I shared the scallops, calamari and crab bruschetta, all delicious. One daughter had the gnocchi which she loved; son, the steak which was cooked perfectly. The other two kids ate off the kids menu which had a nice... More

A great restaurant in the Main Street. It provides great food at very good value to suit a lot of price points. You can get a very good Italian Meal or very good Pizza with the kids ( big kids too). Service is very good and efficient, wine list adequate and location is raised just above street level so provides... More

The parmarsun and rosemary Italian flat bread and the seafood taster platter between the two of us was a super starter.

Both lunch and dinner were amazing experiences. The food on both occasions had such superb flavours. Loved the scallops - some of the best I have tasted. The dinner of risotto did not disappoint as well.

Although this one had some bad reviews i thought i would try for myself - over priced & I left feeling hungry. I had the veal scalopini that looked like stew with about 6 beans & 3 tiny rice balls.

Thanks for your review however misleading I have found it. Reading your other reviews it is quite obvious that you like quantity & in turn perceived quality. The Veal we use is of top quality, the back strap ( 180g per portion), the Arancini balls are made from the best imported Italian Carnaroli rice I can buy with our beans... More
