I have their fixed price lunch three times a month. The décor does trans[ort me to Italy!. As soon as I enter Pasta Cibo I get a most friendly welcome by name from the staff and owners. Being on my own most of the time this warmth and friendship is very much appreciated. They react in the same way to... More

Have eaten here twice quite recently and both times the food and service were outstanding, A lovely little family run place, with freshly cooked food, even tho it has been fully booked the both times i have eaten there the service was spot on and not a long wait considering there was only two guys serving, Highly recommend.

This Italian is stuck in a time warp! It is so old fashioned, but unfortunately the food is not 'like Mama used to make'. Average at best. The service was good though.

Visited Pasta Cibo on Saturday evening with family. Fantastic authentic Italian food. The restaurant is small but has a real authentic Italian feel. The menu is extensive and portion sizes are huge. Don't go if you aren't really hungry! Everything is freshly cooked . Staff very attentive. Prices are very good for quality food. Well worth a visit.

We went to pasta cibo for lunch on Saturday following a recommendation. We had a lovely meal. It has a wider menu than most Italian restaurants and food is cooked to order. Portion sizes were generous but not too big. We would recommend it.

This place is great! We routinely visit anytime we want a sure bet. The food is all cooked fresh, infact one of our favourite tables is near the kitchen so we can watch them make the pasta from scratch. Presentation is old fashioned, but the taste is fantastic. Nice, friendly staff too. It's very small so make a reservation to... More

There were 12 of us in our group eating on a busy Friday evening. The restaurant is a lovely little place, not too big and quite cosy (it did get a bit too warm inside but it was a warm evening). Everyone on our table commented on how delicious their food was and each plate was emptied. The service was... More

A tiny establishment where the tables are very close together. Great décor and ambiance where the staff always make you feel welcome. You can watch your food being cooked while seated at your table. Good standard menu supplemented by a handful of ever changing "specials of the day". No small portions here... but booking is recommended as it is a... More
