This restaurant was one of the best seafood restaurants I have visited in the world! We had grilled fish plate, a Sicilian style prepared fish (can't remember the name) and Orvieto Clasico wine. Perfect! The desert menu was extensive with many mouth watering choices. Mains were 15-16 Euros. Total bill came out to be only 51 Euros. Excellent service.

We found this place on a little side street, we were made to feel so very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. We have two kids, Sarah our waitress was more than happy to make food not on the menu for them and to change the specials for my wife who is vegetarian. The food was great and the rest of the family loved it.

I can not recommend Cibus enough!

Enjoy!

It's very rare that you sit down to a three course lunch in a restaurant and every single dish they bring you is just wow.... Cibus gives you just that; a warm, relaxed atmosphere, friendly and attentive waiting staff and fresh fish that was just divine, from the tuna tartare and seafood salad, to the seafood pasta, to the tuna steak in a pistacchio crust, perfectly paired with a great bottle of prosecco, much required after a pretty hot morning of site-seeing! This is all at a really affordable price, I can only say 100% satisfying down to the last bite! We had no room for dessert but there was a generous selection and certainly looked very good! Five stars Cibus thank you so much for the perfect lunch!

A wonderful family restaurant with impeccable service and outstanding meal. The Salmon was the best meal I had while in Orvieto. Perfect taste with a delicate sauce. Stands out from all the other traditional fare in the city.

Came here after reading great reviews online, was quite disappointed. The starters were great- mussels and smoked fish, however bread would have made both much better to be able to soak up sauce etc.

Main courses we had the grilled mixed fish, breaded grouper and fish of the day with grilled potatoes and mixed grilled vegetables. Mixed grilled fish was fine, tuna and squid were both great however the prawns and langoustines were both overcooked. The breaded grouper was nice but very dry, needed some kind of sauce. The fish of the day was fine but very small portion of fish.

The grilled potatoes weren't seasoned at all and needed to ask for salt for them to be eaten. The grilled mixed vegetables were actually just a plate of spinach, not what was advertised and came out cold.

The service wasn't amazing either, after asking for ice 3 times we still didn't receive it. Overall very underwhelming and didn't live up to the expectations.
