The food here really is exceptional
Lovely local restaurant with great food and service. We will defo be back soon!
The food was excellent, the veal tasted great. The staff were friendly.
Great food & service....i would like to have music on in background.....it is expensive but very nice food....
The food at Tratoria Ibleo is really nice, delicious pizzas! Although the thing that lets it down is the ambience, it's quite dirty and a bit grubby and needs a full renovation i would say.
We booked a table for a party of 5 including one infant.
From here on, the service was outstanding and the food was great. Service, the waitress really took care of us, could not fault it at all. food, the portions were really good and the food itself was really nice, everything arrived hot and not a single one of us could say anything but good things.
I would recommend this restaurant, I would definitely go back, its a nice little family owned place, that does great pizza and pasta without the formalities, it actually reminded me of a trattoria I visited in Rome a few years back, which speaks dividends.
Upon arrival I was told that there was nothing available, despite the fact I had a booking and was never asked if I had a booking. After having to show my OpenTable confirmation, the waitress said we could have a table, which at the time had what I assume was staff members sitting at it, and we could wait by the bar. After roughly 30 minutes we were given our table, 15 minutes after my booking time.
The food was tasty and portion sizes were hearty as I've seen in other reviews. I had the chicken with crabmeat and prawns in a brandy sauce, which was a strange combination that I'm not sure worked. The seafood linguine and the Bolognese were better and as good as most other Italian restaurants.
Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and HUGE portions! I felt it was great value for money! :-)
This restaurant is far more authentic offering as opposed to your more commercial Zizzi's etc - The portions were massive, and excellent value and the staff were very good and on hand. It's the second time we have come back to this place as we were so impressed first time around.
Like the food in this restaurant a lot, but restaurant could do with some refurbishment and would also like to see staff and chefs in clean uniforms needs looking at, but the food is delicious!
Very good food and lots of it in a pleasant atmosphere
portion size is huge and a little off putting, staff are very friendly and attentive but place looks like it could do with a good clean.
Very good family restaurant and excellent value for money.
The food was nice. The setting was a little run down so we were pleasantly surprised with the meal. The service was a little slow when they filled up but staff were perfectly pleasant.
We visited due to its rave reviews but we were very disappointed. Firstly the restaurant was so basic looking (especially for what you pay). The gnocchi were undercooked, the spaghetti overcooked and the steaks were just average. They had run out of half the desserts (majority not home made) as the waiter said they had been busy the previous 2 nights. Waiter was pleasant but I'm afraid we won't be going back.
Food was average, service average all very average or below average in all. Not a great place to go
Ibleo is a restaurant for food lovers. The food really is close to perfect and a must anyone who appreciates good food.
Visited Ibleo last Sunday with my wife and a couple of our old neighbours who appreciate good food. As regulars to Ibleo it was great to watch new patrons enjoy such great quality food. Both have booked again as they enjoyed the experience as much as we do.
Great food served with a rustic theme. A must for anyone who enjoys great flavours.
Been here a couple of times and the food and service is always very good. They have a large range of specials, plus an extensive menu. Portions are v big and the staff can't do enough for you. Their homemade tiramisu is one of the best I've ever tasted.
On first appearance this restaurant felt more like a café. However the staff were friendly and the food was genuine Italian cuisine, beautifully cooked and generous portions too. We had a 3 course meal with drinks for less than £50. Outstanding value. Would definitely go there again.
Excellent local restaurant with a very extensive menu.
Amazing food, large portions and def my new fave restaurant 5 stars * :)
The best liver I have tasted. The staff were friendly and accommodating.
Got back from work just in time to get to one of our favourite restaurants in the local area. Always friendly and very attentive service. We love the food. We wish the owners all the very best as there's huge competition as there's too many restaurants in North Chingford. Ciao!
Absolutely fab food huge portions but still ate it all! fresh ingredients and ive already booked to go back twice this month" fantastico!
Great swordfish! Friendly service too. Spilt wine all over table and they made a joke out of it. Will definitely be going back
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Ibleo. The menu was good, the food average plus but the atmosphere was excellent and we were glad we went here on our one evening in Chingford.
My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant and immediately wanted to change tables for more space but was refused as more customers were turning up later. I can understand that but the place was half empty throughout the evening. The service was not perfect. They made a lot of simple mistakes at our table and surrounding tables. Spoke polite I must say. The food was not as tasty as we were expecting especially from a real Italian family run business. Maybe we were just picky but we didn't stay for afters which means a big no no for the future.
I'm a regular visitor to Ibleo and have been since it opened. My fiancé and I have visited many times and every time the food has been tasty and the portions very generous.
We often fall in to Ibleo after a long day at work when the smell of fresh garlic and herbs wafts our way upon exiting the station and we can't resist!
The staff are always attentive and while happy to point out any menu specials to you are not pushy in getting you to choose any.
We like that Ibleo is a family run restaurant, great to have such an amenity so close to home. It suits us to a tee because it's laid back, the staff are very nice, the food is always simple yet delicious and you'll never leave hungry!
It's a cafe trying to serve restaurant food at restaurant prices. There are so many good restaurants in Station Road serving good food at reasonable prices; try one of them. Don't go here. They even allow dogs at the bar!
A very enjoyable dinner - food was delicious and the service was good. Place could do with a bit of a revamp though.
This location has proved unsuccessful for a string of owners over the years, and while Trattoria Ibleo is trying, it will take more to secure their future.
Food is the most important thing - generally very good. The garlic bread was probably the best I've had, and pasta dishes were very good (and VERY generous). Overall no complaints about the food.
But .. when we arrived at about 7pm, we were the only customers. The decor and furniture looks to have been unchanged in 5 years, barring a few sicilian themed pictures to replace the spanish pictures installed when it was a tapas restaurant. Not nice glasses. Nasty cutlery.
Prices suited the food, (but not the decor) so we will go back, maybe when there is more atmosphere on a Friday night!
