Description: Cibooooh is a restaurant in the hearth of Como, Italy. It's setted in Pallazzo del Pero, one of the most ancient and significant building in the town. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. In our restaurant in Como we serve a blend of classical italian cuisine, creativity and modernity. The name Cibooooh! (In english we could translate in Fooood!) Tell the concept of our cousine: in our restaurnat in Como we merge traditional italian cousine and modernity, we prepare coloured and joyous dishes, respecting quality of raw materials and their seasonality. With more than 200 labels, our wine list offers a research of italian and foreigner wines with a specific attention to little high quality winemakers.

I ended up giving four stars, but my feeling is closer to 4.5 stars. Once again, we found our intended restaurant to be closed, so we tried one nearby – Ciboooh. In this case, it was a fortunate find. We had lunch on a day when all other tables were occupied by locals – many apparently business people. We had the three-course lunch menu, each choosing different dishes, with house-selected wine. The chef is clearly talented, as the ingredients, sauces, and presentation were all very good. The chef’s choice is to make everything al dente that can logically be cooked that way; I know some people would consider such pasta and vegies undercooked, but my wife and I found them to be spot-on – cooking thirty seconds less and they would have been undercooked. While there was a traditional basis for most dishes, most also exhibited some creative flair of the chef. The wait staff was very friendly, but professional. It was a tough choice to eat inside on a beautiful day, but we very much liked the modern décor and the jazz playing softly in the background. We found the lunch plus very good wine to be an excellent value. When we have the opportunity, we will return and try some other things on the menu that looked interesting. Of course, that will push up the price.

Nothing special, pasta from a box. Service was friendly, the place itself is very nice. We went for lunch and came out not very satisfied. There are so many good places around I wouldn't recommend

We often find restaurants in Como much of a muchness - this one was different. The food here is imaginative and breaks away from the usual fare. The place was full for lunch with mostly local people who are lucky to have this restaurant close to their workplaces. Everything we ate was beautifully presented and service was charming. The lunch menu seemed very good value. We will return.

This is the second try at Cibooooh in lake Como. The first was for a light meal and drink, excellent.We went back for a full 3 course meal and wine, around 100euro but worth it. The chef is extremely talented, all course beautiful presented, waiters excellent English and happy to chat and recommend courses. Highly recommend.Enjoy

We live in Florence and we found this place delightful. Highly recommend the smoked bacon and cheese gnocchi as well as the octopus salad. Incredible. Awesome meal.
