Great Atmosphere, Very Good Food, Great Dessert

This is a small Italian restaurant in Summertown. The ambiance is very nice - great place to take a date, whether it's your first date or your spouse of twenty years. Food is very good; portion sizes are just right. Dessert was outstanding. Gelato was tasty; cakes were moist.

Cibo will close when it's lease runs out in a few months, because their landlord wants to redevelop the whole building and won't renew their lease. A big shame, because Cibo's is perfect mix of really good food, very friendly staff and reasonable prices. We were 14 for a 60th birthday party. Every one of us found the food excellent.... More

Delicious food, excellent service. Will be sorely missed. Calamari as starters followed by scallops. Fries as a side and creme brûlée fur dessert. Scrummy wine too!

Visited Cibo for a works Christmas party beginning January. The food was of high quality and very filling and the service was great especially as there were about 20 of us there at once. I would recommend this restaurant.

Had high hopes for this as friends recommended it, but when I went, they didn't have several items I was looking forward to eat...no sea bass! Ended up ordering a mediocre pasta instead. Expensive let down

We found a surprisingly quaint hidden corner of this nice place. Food is always good, and so is the staff. In fact, the owner came by several times to make sure that we are properly served. Impressed!

I have eaten at Cibo before, and pretty underwhelmed, but as it's local, I agreed to give it another go - it'll be the last visit unless they change substantially. Was served Fettuccine with prawns last night - pasta clumped together and crunchy hard. I sent this back, and although less so, pasta still stuck together and prawns so overcooked... More

Great vibe in chic Sumertown - specialist Italian food cooked to perfection. Starters are plentiful and very tasty. Fully recommended!
