Cibo Espresso

The Cibo Espresso Story

The pillars of the Cibo Espresso experience came from our four founders:

An Italian chef – for epicurean culinary adventure, an artisan pasticciere – for light and luscious pastries, a restaurant manager- to deliver an artful ambience, and one handsome barista – to serve perfectly extracted coffee while you sit back and soak in the charming atmosphere.

Together these four elements have fused to bring you an authentic Italian experience right here in Australia.

What is life – unless it is shared with friends?

And over great coffee in a charming place! This is the best way to seal friendship and grow in substance. You must only step into any CIBO Espresso, sit up at the bar or a table and enjoy the ambience of a truly authentic Italian café to experience this.

Si accomodi that’s Italian for come on in!
