“Still a wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We are now regular visitors to this restaurant and each visit is just as good as the last. Food is gorgeous and so is the wine and the management and staff just cannot do enough to help and make you feel very welcome. Very rustic feel to the restaurant and anyone who has visited all the secret places in Italy, including Sicily and Sardinia will realise this is the authentic feel of all the restaurants there - now we have the same in Chingford. They have a big menu and also have a specials board. Pizzas are wonderful here and our friends children just love coming in from Billericay to have their "special" pizzas. So, plenty to choose from o the menu for everybody. Ibleo is definitely one not to be missed and well worth a visit.

“Excellent all round”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Booked on-line which was easy and cool. You could not get better staff as they were so friendly and chilled. Food speed was excellent and tasted great. There was a huge menu to choose from.
We be coming back here again. Well done all here.

“Quality AND Quantity AND Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

Ibleo at first glance does not offer trendy contempory decor or staff in ubiquitous black trousers , white shirts, piped funky music .. It's not a chain, it's a true one off.

Yes in all honesty they could give it a lick of paint, but it's all part of the charm.

For Antonio, it's obviously all about the fresh ingredients

Very welcoming, laid back character , larger than life :)

Huge variety on menu , great pizzas , lovely pizzas , and as other reviewers have said, fresh steaks and fish.
He has cooked specials for us as well..

Just try it, sure you wouldn't be disappointed .

Prices are fair, with best wine only £35

“Fantastic Italian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Me and my wife had decided to go out for a meal and on to the cinema and after being told there would be a 45min wait in the Harvester we decided to find somewhere else to eat. We stumbled across this restaurant and how glad we are that we did! The manager told us he had a table just paying the bill and we could wait in the bar for a couple of minutes. Once seated we had the scallops and the bruschetta for starters which were very nice. The waitress then reccommended a meal to me which was fabulous. It was a sirloin steak with mushrooms olives red wine sauce Sautéed potatoes and asparagus. My wife had the pizza. We were both very happy with the food and the service was excellent. The owner in particular was an absolute delight. He was very accommodating and had mastered the art of checking on you with pestering. In short we will definately be going back and hopefully bringing friends with us. Great Food. Great Service. Great Value!

“Wonderful Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I went to this restaurant on August 1st as I had seen 5 star reviews on it and thought I would give it a try .It was really pleasant as it was a very warm night and they had all the doors folded back.My husband and I went with some friends and we were greeted by very friendley staff , we all ordered starters which were absolute delicious and generous portions and the main courses were excellent too and plentiful .We were all very impressed and had a lovely meal with excellent service , we couldn't fault anything and would definitely go back .
