Fodor's Expert Review Cibo

$$$$ City Center and Parnell New Zealand Fodor's Choice

When you are in the mood for really good food without any drama head to Cibo. It's Italian for "good food," and it is apt for this restaurant, which has been around for more than 20 years. Chef Kate Fay is known for smart innovative food and the service is led by co-owner Jeremy Turner, who is possibly Auckland's best maître d' and an avid cyclist. In an old chocolate factory, the restaurant opens onto a quiet courtyard, where you can dine by a fishpond lined with rushes and lotus plants. Or take a table inside, where palms grow toward the high skylights. Everything is cooked with aplomb, and the menu reflects the best available produce. This is a popular venue for weddings, so don't be surprised if you can't get a table on a summer Saturday. The wine list at this grown-up place is remarkably good.
