Visited here 21/2 with my wife and 2 children. Looked lovely from outside so we gave it a try. We went for pizzas, which were nice. Our table was dirty. On the other hand must say that toilets were spotless, even there are really small. My only criticism is that waiters could do better, one had a chewing in his... More

This is a great restaurant, authentic feel to the decor and very friendly staff. Extensive menu and all food is cooked in front of you which adds to the experience. Gets really busy so better to book ahead.

First visit here was on our first date 5 years ago! We have tried to book back in a few times since but this place is always fully booked! And it's no surprise... Lovely quaint little restaurant friendly staff and some of the best Italian food Iv eaten! ❤

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Harpenden and one of the best Italian restaurants outside Italy. Despite always studying the menu I will always have the same. Atmosphere in this restaurant is always warm and welcoming and the food is always excellent.

One of the smallest restaurants you can ever visit. It's small, snug, and tables are close.....but it's a lovely traditional Italian restaurant, with Italian staff. I've been going here for years and love it. The food always has big portions, which is quite rare these days. The price is really reasonable. Nothing else to really say. Just a really good... More

Great food I was there yesterday and the service and food were excellent I would recommend trying it for a good night out. Just a word of warning, I advise asking how hot dishes some dishes are when ordering.

Hi, thanks for your feedback, sorry that your meal was not what you expected, it is not common for starters to be served with bread unless you ask for it, if you wanted something else on your garlic bread apart from garlic, butter and our own herbs you just had to ask, as all our food is freshly prepared ,...

I'll keep this brief. The pizzas have always been good. A few years ago I'd have said the pasta dishes were disappointing, but things have changed. Pizzas, if anything, even better, and I recently very much enjoyed spaghetti mare, granchio, and the calf liver bolognese especially tasty. Staff as charming as ever. It would be nice if the "specials" changed... More

I increasingly just love Pasta Cibo. Biggish portions of good food and a nice atmosphere. Wine a bit pricey I think.
