Coming from Australia had lunch with friends at this restaurant. Had great 3 course meal which can't fault. They even allowed me to pick and change menu selection to my preference without any problem. Staff very friendly attentive and witty. Most impressed with this restaurant and tiramisu hard to beat. Huge thumbs up and will be back given opportunity.

We went to see the Rosslyn Chappel, and as it is open to the public on Sundays only after 12 o'clock, we came here first for lunch. And it was more then worth it. We shhared a starter (melanzzane/parmigiano), then had two great seafood dishes, the Paccheri di Branzino (Pasta tubes stuffed with seabass, served with prawns leeks mussels fresh tomato & basil) and a wonderful plate of monk fish. the good house wine (white) and the welcomng Italian staff made it a very pleasant and tasty time in Cibo.

Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by friendly stay. The service was great from start to finish. We had a bottle of prosecco where they always kept coming back over to top up our glasses. The menu was really good and all reasonably priced. Couldn't complain atal with our visit here.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who eats here all the time. I guess we picked the wrong night as the staff were arguing amount themselves in Italian. One waiter was really friendly and attentive wish I got his name. I had looked at the menu online but once at the restaurant found they didn't have what was shown on line. I couldn't take my eyes of the guy who worked at the bar and made the desserts as he continually rubbed his face then handled the food without gloves. Sorry to say we won't be back although the food was good but just not a nice atmosphere

Excellent service and meal in well appointed yet minimalist Italian restaurant. And comes with its own free parking. Highly recommended.
