Cheap eats at Cibo – the January sales hit your plate
HITTING the sales doesn’t just mean hitting the shops – head to one of our favourite neighbourhood Italian eateries Cibo every day throughout the month of January and enjoy 50% off the à la carte menu.
An authentic and independent Neapolitan restaurant in the heart of Manchester with a focus on fresh flavours and a modern take on traditional cooking methods, Cibo (pronounced chee-bo) dishes up real Italian food from the heart. Brought to you by the team behind Don Giovanni, you can enjoy various signature dishes in a relaxed cool café environment perfect for everything from working lunches to dinner dates, all without breaking the bank.
Start with a plate of traditional Italian Antipasti (£7.75 after discount) – the selection of salami and cured meats and chargrilled Italian vegetables is great to share. Follow up with your choice of British-raised steak (from £10.50 after discount) or one of the fresh fish of the day dishes, perhaps – the Capesante Gratinate is certainly tempting: succulent seared king scallops sprinkled with grated Pecorino cheese and finished under the grill for a sizzling golden topping (£7.75 after discount).
Cibo’s Neapolitan-style pizzas are also looking good, and the folded Calzone pocket is stuffed full of spicy salami, buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes, ham and mushrooms (£6.25 after discount). There are even gluten-free bases and vegan cheese available on request.
Talking of Veganuary, Cibo has one of the largest dedicated vegan menus in the city, listing dishes such as homemade gnocchi with basil pesto (£5.88 after discount) and Lasagne Alle Melanzane, a vegan version of Italy’s most famous dish and layering up pasta sheets with roasted aubergines, cherry tomato paste and vegan mozzarella (£6.07 after discount).
Of course, no meal is complete without dessert and, at these prices, it’s hard to say no, so why not try the vegan take on classic panna cotta (£2.38 after discount) or Cibo’s signature Tiramisu (£2.75 after discount), made fresh in house every day.
This offer really is too good to miss, especially as up to four of you can take advantage of the discount all month – just be sure to book ahead to avoid disappointment. (This offer is subject to availability and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or on Cibo’s set menu.)
