“Great hospitality, excellent food”
Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

The combo option on game meat, a choice of Kudu, Springbok and Ostrich was most appetising. Two 100 gram portions of delightfully tender springbok and ostrich with seasonal veggies. We'll definitely be back

“Brava Bello cibo!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

During my time in Oudtshoorn Bello cibo was one of the restaurants that we just kept going back to!
Small enough to be cosy, but large enough not to feel cramped, this restaurant has achieved that perfect blend of great quality food, (I would recommend the pasta al pomodoro to anyone; it gives you a food orgasm!) great people and great atmosphere.

Having looked at the others, I know that this review is only one among many who sing the praises of Bello cibo but it just goes to show what an amazing and must-go place this is! The food is excellent, a wide variety offered on the menu for both vegetarians and meat eaters at a low price and instead of squinting, you smile when you see the bill!
The waiters and waitresses there are extremely friendly and very accommodation so that you always feel cared for, and ask for their opinion if you can't decide what to eat! They know the menu well and have certainly never steered me wrong. This restaurant is one of the top in Oudtshoorn, and you cannot miss dining there if passing through.

“Decent food”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Read about this restaurant on Trip advisor and thought we would give it a go whilst we were in Oudtshoorn. It was very nice, lovely large portions and good value for money. Service was good even though they had a large party in the next room. Would go back if we are ever in Oudtshoorn again

“Good Italian food with a twist”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We ate at Bello Cibo's twice: good food and wine with prompt service at a reasonanble price. The pasta was excellent, the snails disappointing.

“Amazing Italian!!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

My husband and I visited this restaurant two different nights and would have gone back if we were in Oudtshoorn longer. This is a small Italian restaurant and even during the quiet winter season, it was full and reservations were recommended/required to get a table. The service was great and ambiance was wonderful. The owner made sure to visit each table and ensure everything was going well. Both nights we had italian pasta dishes which were incredibly tasty, large portions and very reasonably priced. We particularly enjoyed the Tagliatelli di struzzo and Spaghetti al ragu, but the Spaghetti con pomodoro and Spaghetti al pesto were also very well done. Coming from an Italian, I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a great Italian meal in Oudtshoorn! PS. The pictures we posted of the food don't do it justice...tastes way better than the pictures look.
