Cibo Minus the Cream
I recently tried the Cioccolata Italiano at two Cibo outlets. One was King William Street and the other was Mosely Square in Glenelg. "Cioccolata Italiana" is the wonderful thick hot chocolate that most outlets of Cibo provide and costs $4.50. The standard menu mentions it is served with a dash of cream and indeed the dash of cream has been in evidence until recently. The cream is a good accompaniment to the thick dark chocolate. When I drew the waiter's attention to the lack of cream at the busy Glenelg outlet, I was advised that cream was extra. Perhaps next time I will not be in such a hurry and find out how much extra.
