We had a starter and and main. The food was great, really the best we had in our trip (3weeks) in South Africa. The personal are very nice and helpfull, really great. I recommend all people to visit Bello Cibo and try the Pasta and/or Ostrich Combo.

Nice resaurant close to CBD. Hotel pick up and drop off service is convenient. Good menu selection. Wine list could do with some help. Food was served promptly but was pretty average. Entertaining banter with the owners who engage well with their customers.

On our first visit, the food was out of this world however this time it was lackluster. To be fair, my husband's meal of the trio of venison meats was excellent, however I ordered the mussels and they were served in a heavy cream sauce which sat in bread. This was like bunny chow only with mussels. Totally nasty. Was... More

We had an overnighter in "Ostrich Central" and were recommended to eat at Bello Cibo by the owner of the hotel we were staying at and were very satisfied with his recommendation. Friendly owners and staff and a wide choice of food and very good value for money. Two of us had bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, beer, two starters and... More

Table cloths stained and had hard food on it, first thing to put me off. Thought I would try marrow bones for the first time. First one I tried was not cooked through, "melba toast" burnt on all the pieces. Food taken away and returned with the same burnt toast. Husband had a pizza, looked like it was cooked in... More

This place caters for food lovers without the posh table mats and cutlery. The owners are passionate about good food and service to their customers, the staff are very attentive with quick service. The food is tasty with big portions. I would return here without a doubt ,they also supply a pick up service if your staying local.

After a disappointing meal at another establishment last night I checked out local reviews a bit more closely and decided to give Bello Cibo a try and we weren't disappointed here. From outside, the restaurant looks a bit rustic and you may well decide to drive on which in my opinion would be a mistake. There's three seating areas -... More

A nice place just off the Main Street in Oudtshoorn. Good food, we had some excellent pasta, but it is very busy and the service can be a bit haphazard. Good value though and Pierre gave us a free lift back to our guest house.
