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...

Traditional Italian trattoria - good basic pasta dishes, pizzas are quite good but is especially good for meat and fish dishes - always check the specials board as there are usually a few traditional Italian gems on there. Prices are reasonable and the staff are always friendly if a little rushed. The only downside is they, like many restaurants, have... More

Made the mistake of going here after long absence - it was the only place in Harpenden which had a table on Saturday night at short notice - that should have told me something... Pasta was bad - ordered something with anchovies - there were NO anchovies. Salad old tired and limp. And a very full price too. Avoid.

Just a quiet Birthday Dinner with hubby and me. However I do not think we will be returning again as it was a little disappointing. We ordered house wine white for me and Red for Pete, both were very average, which is not the description that Pete used for his....... We skipped the starters as there was nothing that really...

I'd organised a 30th birthday party for my husband at Pasta Cibo for Saturday 26th April with 19 guests who had all pre-ordered from a set menu. The restaurant were very helpful and friendly in the lead up to the event and I had been really impressed and prepared to give a good sized tip to thank them. On Tuesday... More

Myself and my son dropped in on a midweek night. We had squid, garlic bread, pizza and lasagne and all was very tasty and fresh. There's a lot of eating choice in Harpenden so the Restaurants need to be on top of their game. Pasta Cibo is and I would recommend.

I have visited pasta cibo many times and now feel that I must write a review. They never listen to your order and do not take into account allergies. On a number of occasions I have ordered and even though I have told them I am unable to have certain ingredients have been presented with the wrong meal. Not only... More
