There are several restaurants, including the usual chains in Bishop’s Stortford serving Italian food. Cibo is a family run restaurant and it was very refreshing to eat here. We went fairly early on a Saturday evening, it was very busy with a mixture of families/couples/friends....More

First visit here for my birthday on Sunday. The food was very tasty but a little pricey for what we had. It was like being on holiday as not much English appeared to be spoken, which was nice. Very clean and quite quick service.

Excellent food and service. Reasonably priced. Good atmosphere. The only drawback is the menu is extremely heavy on pasta dishes. If you don't want pasta you may be better to go elsewhere

The best Italian food in the area, served in the manner of a traditional Italian family Trattoria. Great wines, fabulous pastas and pizzas and terrific gelato. The large number of Italian native speakers in here every night speaks volumes about the place. It is a...More

If you get a corner table on a quieter night (midweek) I suppose it would be. It is a very friendly place and the lighting is not harsh and very quiet music, hope this helps.

MORE THAN JUST A MENU... Cibo meaning 'food' in Italian, is a modern Italian Eatery and Pizzeria. We are an independent family owned Italian restaurant with a strong Sicilian influence. The main characteristic of our cuisine is simplicity... Our bread and pizza dough is made fresh on the premises daily using a combination of the finest Italian and Sicilian flour. In every dish that we create, we use only the finest ingredients sourced directly from Italy and our fresh vegetables, seafood and meats are delivered daily by local suppliers. All our food is made and served by a team of people who love cooking as well as eating and talking about it. We're passionate about our wine too and offer a great selection that compliments the menu. We are open all day for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just simply a refreshing drink. So come on in and experience the flavours and fun of our culture: honest cooking, top quality ingredients, friendly service and of course great Italian wines! BUON APPETITO!
