Restaurant details
Reviewed 25 September 2017

While touring the Dumfriesshire region, quite by accident, my wife and I stumbled upon Cibo Citta, which I believe translated to something like "Food city".

What a wonderful little restaurant - so good we even returned the next evening for another meal!

Neither of us are massive eaters and I was a little apprehensive on ordering pizza, but I was assured by the extremely pleasant and friendly staff that it wouldn't be too much.

They weren't wrong either - the base was very thin and crispy - it's a long time since I had a pizza as nice at this - not a bit soggy like many of the offerings we all too often find in restaurants these days. There was just the right amount of topping too.

After finding we weren't too full, we decided to share an ice cream between us and that too was very nice.

I would suggest booking as they place does seem to be very popular with almost all the tables being occupied on both occasions we visited.

Next time we're in the area, we will certainly be making plans to visit again.

New proprietors in this Italian Restaurant in the middle of Annan, presume the name "Cibo Citta" means something in Italian. Was aware from previous visits to the premises that the access is up a flight of stairs which may not be convenient for older travellers. The usual Italian dishes on a fairly extensive menu were very tasty but disappointed in choice of sweets although would recommend their Italian strawberry ice cream. We visited restaurant on a Thursday evening and being nearly full when we left at say 6.30pm considered this was excellent trade for a Thursday.
Staff were attentive and pleasant, with the possible lady owner being very pleasant and friendly.

Hi Stronbae,

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review following your recent visit, the team really appreciate your feedback.

Cibo Città translates to "Food City" in Italian.

We are currently working hard on our new menu and we are extending our choice of sweets with some lighter and healthier options too.

We look forward to seeing you again soon,
Lee

I believe this is a fairly new restuarant in Annan, very impressed. Staff were friendly, limited but nice range on menu. Food served up nicely and well presented with good portion size. Definitely recommended. Lovely Tiramisu for dessert.
