Review on Cibo

Cibo is Italian for 'food' and this neighbourhood restaurant has been delivering the real stuff for a good many years. It's tucked away in a quiet backwater just a stroll from Olympia, and attracts a regular crowd of well-heeled Kensington locals, plus tired souls looking for an oasis after the rigours of the Exhibition Centre.

The main dining room has a cosy feel, with lots of mirrors and artwork on the walls, and there are additional secluded areas for those who want some peace and quiet. The food is reliably authentic and dishes are presented on brightly painted earthenware plates. Homemade pasta is one of the star turns, and the kitchen might offer anything from ravioli filled with venison and apple ragù to mezzelune with crab and seafood sauce. Fish also shows up well in other guises - witness baked monkfish with saffron and courgette flowers, and scallops baked with prosciutto and rosemary. Meat fans might go for braised shin of veal with marrow risotto or grilled fillet of beef with roast garlic and wild rocket, while desserts are mostly standards such as pannacotta, semifreddo and budino al cioccolato.
