“Poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Even though we had made reservations, we were stuck in a corner on the veranda. Our waiter urged us to hurry up with our order because they were expecting a tour group of 70. The group soon arrived and were placed in the adjoining veranda. With the racket of their arrival and jolly conversations across tables, we asked to be moved to quieter table. The waiter reacted somewhat irritated but nonetheless showed us to another place. Astoundingly he seated us at a wobbly little picnic table, even though three sturdy two-person tables were available. We asked to change tables again, and thereafter did thoroughly enjoy the steaks and a good wine, at very reasonable prices.

“Poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

We visited two years ago and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Bello Cibo. However, this time the waitress service was poor and we were served warm water and wine.

“Authentic italian food. ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

We enjoyed this place. Great cook ('never trust a skinny cook'h and friendly service. Our pizza vegetarian and spaghetti ragu were great. Large and tasty portions. Prices are low for the quality offered. Parking directly next/behind the restaurant. A bit outside the main area but easy to reach. We can certainly recommend.

“nice tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

We went there on our first night in Oudtshoorn. The place looks simple but the quality of the food makes you forget this. We all had something differrnt: pizza (was ok), ostrich filet (which was amazing) and the pasta with seafood in foil (to die for)!
