Since opening in early 2018, Cibo has made quite the impression on Manchester’s Italian food scene.
Cibo is an effortlessly classy restaurant – laid back, with a firm commitment to serving the finest Neapolitan cuisine this side of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Cibo is a true highlight of Manchester’s Italian food scene. Tucked away on Liverpool Road, it’s one of Deansgate’s most attractive destinations, with large glass windows allowing diners to watch the world go by outside.
No matter what food you’re looking for, you’re likely to find it on the menu. Pasta plays a major part, naturally, including acclaimed courses such as the classic lasagne, cannelloni packed with hearty ricotta cheese and grilled Mediterranean vegetables, or the mouthwatering gnocchi con nduja, which combines those delightful little dumplings with unforgettable spicy pork, buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil.
You will also find a whole range of unique risottos, pizzas and a number of carefully-crafted vegan starters, mains and desserts. if you want gluten-free pasta you only need to ask.
Plus there’s a fantastic ‘fresh fish of the day’ menu, featuring everything from seared king scallops covered with grated pecorino cheese, to pan-fried Anglesey sea bass.
Meat-lovers will be impressed by the grill menu’s selection of locally-sourced, 28 day aged sirloin, fillet and ribeye steaks.
There’s a wide-ranging drinks menu, including all kinds of Italian wines, plenty of dazzling, well-made cocktails and mocktails, and whatever high-quality spirits or beers you can think of.
But it’s not just the exceptional food and drink that makes Cibo one of Manchester’s must-try restaurants. The venue is stylish and welcoming – particularly following the extensive makeover that took place over the summer months.
