UPDATE: Cibus has closed it’s doors. I leave the article for reference.
Perfectly located in front of the lake Cibus Restaurant is the ideal place for a romantic dinner or business lunch and recently Brunch too!
The Restaurant is purely Italian, but not the typical one! The food is done only with selected ingredients and family recipes, but also with heart & passion, and this is priceless and very appreciated when you go to a restaurant.
For starters we were a little lost, so Ernesta, the owner gave us a little advise. We had the Parmigiana di Melanzane and the Cartoccio di frittura mista. I fell in love with the Parmigiana, it was a true delight! It is a tower of fried eggplant slices with tomato sauce (and I guess more ingredients) the fact is that once you start you cannot stop!
For main course I had the pasta with Mussels and my husband had the Straccetti di manzo rughettati. The pasta is spicy, so be careful if you are not used to it. I preferred the Straccetti di manzo rughettati, it was the first time I tried this recipe and this way of cooking the meat. It is fantastic, actually I would come back only for this dish!
For desert we had several small portions of different desserts in order to try many. I was not very hungry after all we ate, so trying several in one go seemed like the best idea.
To accompany this delicious dinner we had an Italian wine that married perfectly with our dishes. There is a wide selection of Italian wines divided by regions. We decided to go for a wine from Puglia, very nice wine (pic below)
There is also a Brunch on Sundays for 35CHF for adults and 15 CHF for kids! I haven’t been there yet, but I will definitely put it in my to do list! With the beautiful days ahead, it seems like the perfect place to enjoy a beautiful lake view and a varied brunch. The picture below is from the Brunch (taken from the restaurant’s Facebook page)
Additional Note: Ernesta is in the back of every dish, so do not hesitate to ask for special requests, allergies, cakes, cupcakes, etc. She will be happy to fulfil your request!
