“Authentic italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Great authentic Italian - beautiful calamari entree and possibly the best pizza ever! Authentic base and tomato sauce base. The rest of the menu looked just as good.

“Good Italian food, nice location, attentive staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

Enjoyed dinner here, had the specials for the night, a veal and artichoke dish for mum and pizza with Gorgonzola , bacon and red onion (great combination). Staff were attentive, I noticed the owner talked to every table of diners, this is a very nice touch. We stayed in the Saltwater apartments above the restaurant and the wonderful aromas lured us in.

“Good italian”

Had a very nice meal here but very expensive for Brits. Two bowls of pasta, glass of wine and sprite for £50!

“a great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

We walked the t\streets of Port Douglas checking the menus and ended up at the upstairs Bel Cibo. Great service by the owner/manager, terrific food, particularly the hand-made fettucinis and raviolis, generous amounts of the flavouring ingredients, crab on two, duck on one, and helpful advice regarding good value wines.
After disappointing experiences elsewhere it was great to find such excellent food and service at amazingly cheap prices ($17-$18 for mains)

“Good food - Watch for the 'extras'”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

We ate at this Italian after considering others nearby. The food and service were good, but no more. Good fresh pasta and breads - good cold beers. Nice place to eat outside and take in the atmosphere. The 'extras' were the water supplied to the table. The waitress asked' 'sparkling or non sparking water with your meal?' No mention of cost - $8 - for an 'opened ' bottle of water seems a little OTT. Took the edge of a good night.
