eldest daughter bought 8pax family dinner treat at cibo italiano on 8.7.2018. ^^
place had good wine selection. we brought a wine ourselves. it’s 1 for 1 so we bought 1 wine & no corkage for the one we brought.
the wine my son & sil picked was better than what we brought actually. 🙂
some cakes & pastry.
we left about 9.30pm, place was well take up including the al fresco area.
the burrata was ok, not the standard of rubato, but this was like S$28 whereas rubato was like S$45 but came with parma ham.
the charcuteri board meat & cheese platter (top photo) was quite good. a large serving of salami, ham & cheese.
truffle fries was great.
the brussel sprouts fritters were very good. everyone liked it.
lobster ravioli was good standard. sauce very good taste.
the seafood tagliatelle was good too, sauce a bit light in taste.
the salami pizza was really good, very tasty better than what i expected.
the 4 cheese pizza was the usual good standard, nice cheesy flavours.
one surprised package was the braised beef cheeks.
the meat mains were quite ex so we ordered this..this was done really well, very tender & excellent taste.. even wife liked it..we usually don’t go for braised dishes.
we shared a lava cake. daughter liked it. i didn’t think too much of it actually.
i have not made lava cake for the longest time now but i think my dark chocolate lava was much more flavourful than this.
dinner for 8pax came to S$390 including i think a S$100 wine. quite ok. we had a great time and all the dishes we ordered were of good standard.
