I’m not 100% sure why everyone is raving about this place. It was ok but seriously nothing special at all. I wouldn’t bother going back for food I can easily cook at home.

What can be said? Authentic decor, dedicated menu with specials that change once in a blue moon, a staff who have been there for so long and do such a Sterling job for everyone. Limoncello at the end of the night. The crab linguine is brilliant but ataplea like the pizzas and particularly the gnocchi are just perfect. The most welcoming restaurant around and certainly the best Italian in Hertfordshire (of course most people already know this) long may it continue.

Came here with my friend, once before to celebrate my sister's birthday, aswell as many other occassions and no one has ever been at all disappointed. Excellent range of foods + drinks and lovely, thoughtful staff.
I have to say about the quality of the meals and the price as when i went out with my friend we both had a full 3 course meal, however i decided to order another garlic bread instead of dessert as it was delicious and made using freshly made bread (other than dough or a storebought french stick) and gently smothered with cheese and sprinkled with fresh herbs and garlic, and the entire meal only came to a much lower amount than any other restaurant i have been to; also all the floor staff are very helpful and increadibly fast, friendly, chatty and make such a nice experience as if you've met another one of your friends while you were there. Overall a 5* meal and service as the food is all fresh and the staff are great, unfortunately cannot give more than 5, can't wait to go back soon.

Lovely authentic restaurant. Warm & inviting. Great service & fab food. Suitable for a cosy dinner for 2 or a girly lunch. Have been dining here for years and they never disappoint.

Had an absolutely lovely experience at Pasta Cibo. The atmosphere was warm and relaxing, and the décor individual and charming. The staff were friendly, helpful, and very attentive; it was easy to get their attention when necessary without them seeming pushy or overbearing, and they were clearly knowledgeable about their menu. The food itself was delicious, authentic, and clearly freshly made, good value, with a lot of variety on the menu for all tastes, and dessert was one of the nicest I've had in a long time! Looking forward to going back!

Brilliant to hear that they are getting a ramp for better wheelchair access, as this was the only area that needed slight improvement.
