The worst Italian food I had in ages, risotto made of something similar to rice but for sure not a proper one reheated not made fresh like it should be, very tiny antipasti for not a small price, pizza? Hmmm on a thick crust, uncooked in the middle, disappointing. If you looking for a real and good Italian food you... More

We'd read good reviews and had hoped for a good honest experience, it had the right in ambiance and the service was good but we found the food very bland and very expensive. I'm only writing a review now (our meal was in June) because a visit to another local restaurant reminded me what poor value one of the starters... More

We came here enticed by praise by people and reviews on trip advisor. Let be honest though, the ambiance is fantastic, the service isn't bad, but it is cramped, we were squashed into a table in the corner and if you have ever been to Italy you will know, the food is mediocre, honestly, if you 'love' this food come...

The best. No discussion. We have been going for over 10 years and are still junior compared to many. My ten year old says Cibo have the best Spag-Bog in the world.

I visited Pasta Cino for the first time with my partner a couple of weeks back. We both left feeling, not only full, but totally satisfied with the exceptional service that little place has to offer! On every occasion either my partner or I put our spoon down within 1 minute a member of staff was there to attend to... More

Recently visited with a large group of people, in fact we booked the whole place. We pre ordered our food and to be fair they did a great job in both the quality and taste of the various dishes. All the staff were most helpful albeit all were rushed off their feet with such a large group. This was my... More

I love this place, it is full of character has nice staff and the food is very enjoyable. Had a lovely evening with a friend and I will be returning as soon as I can. The atmosphere is intimate but somehow you do not feel your are intruding on other conversations.

We first visited Pasta Cibo about 25 years ago. The management might have changed, but the chairs haven't - they are still very uncomfortable, I find. But very friendly staff, nice atmosphere and decor, and tasty if very substantial pizzas. This, and the special lunchtime deals make it a first choice for me, rather than going for one of the...
