We paid $30 each for 2 courses and a glass of wine, the meal was beautifully presented and very tasty. There were a few choices of entrees and mains. Ideal location up on balcony overlooking busy passersby

I've eaten at Bel Cibo a few years ago and was impressed. It had to be on my list for the latest trip to Port Douglas. Would I be impressed again? The menu has of course changed since my first visit but still keeps a...More

We had booked a later sitting in order to get a nice table which we reserved. It was given away but in the end we were given a larger table in the area we wanted. Found the staff friendly and accommodating with good food.

We stopped in late at night for a quick meal. My partner had the eye fillet and I had a tagliatelle pasta. Both were perfect and came out in good time. Flavours were perfect and staff very prompt. Will be back!

Restaurant is in a great location, but the service and food let it down. Found the food quite expensive for what was on offer. Surprised to find the only seafood on the Marinara pizza was anchovies! Staff appeared to have no training, our service was...More

Had the displeasure of 'dining' here tonight. Walked in the front door and stood in the foyer only to be ignored by all the passing staff despite the restaurant only being half full. Eventually my husband asked someone if we just seat ourselves. She said...More

Sorry, I'm unaware of what you are implying I have no part in any witch hunt of messages toward you I do not know a Dazza. I can take constructive criticism quite fine, thank you. It's people's personal preferences that... More
Having reviewed the negative reviews of this restaurant it is clear the owner cannot take any criticism at all. Maheno - OCT 2015 wrote that she was unhappy as they were charged for a side dish that came after the meal wash finished and the owner stated she must be mistaken it cannot be his restaurant. Impossible for such a thing to happen in HIS restaurant. He then goes on to try and shift the blame onto ANOTHER restaurant!? I wrote a bad review for my experience at this restaurant earlier in the year and the owner attacks me for it. Even attacking my appearance in my profile pic! @ KiwiChef, people are entitled to write their opinions and complain if they have had a bad experience. Your response to those opinions and complaints reflects your customer service skills, your ability to take and handle criticism and just your general maturity. You attack every person who has a negative opinion about their experience at your restaurant. I'm sure if I go again I might have a better or even a perfect experience, but the time I visited I didn't and you shouldn't attack people who don't praise you, your food, staff and venue. Last thing, it's extremely low and scummy behavior to try and blame another restaurant for a bad review YOU received (as mentioned above). You actually say of the bad review "there is another Italian Restaurant in Port Douglas - Bucci, they seem to have many negative reviews on their TA page about food & service.I agree with you & just cannot fathom that happening here.Ciao" I notice it is not the first time you try to blame this restaurant. I'll be letting them know so they can report you. I'm sure you're going to have a charming and professional response ready for me after hearing some hard truth. I feel sorry for the poor staff member you're going to force to reply to this. I hope people catch on to you. Kiwi "Chef".
