I go to this restaurant almost weekly with coworkers and I LOVE the food. They have mouth watering pizza, salads and sandwiches. The restaurant is adorable too. If you haven't been, you are missing out!

Our friends went downtown to this place based on recommendations of others. We arrived about 1PM. We opted for the patio. Nothing fancy, nice shaded patio. BUT this day they had a guitar player singing nice songs but way too loud. That aspect needs to be toned way down so diners can talk amongst themselves. The food was excellent and... More

Great food. Lovely service. Okay wine. Gotta get the Appetizer of Tagliere. Pizza is nicely crusted. Espresso is delish. Crepes for dessert are excellent

No draft beer, but bottled craft beer is available Spouse & friend had wine. We shared the gnocchi w/san marzano based tomato sauce, a Caprese salad and two... More

Our trip started out wrong so this might have added to my following review - don't confuse 7th St. and 7th Ave. We mistakenly got off of 1-10 and took 7th St. to Fillmore heading East and ended up in a bad neighborhood. The restaurant is East of 7th AVE., don't make our mistake. Anyways Cibo is rather charming but... More

Great vibe. But food was average at best. Portions (pasta dishes) were quite small. Indoor setting was very loud due to poor accoustics from the quaint old building.

The good food, service, and atmosphere at Cibo were all excellent. We have several special restaurants in Phoenix that we enjoy regularly. Cibo is the best.

Had a great meal sitting outside at a lovely table under a tree. Antipasto was great with marinated garlic heads, different Italian hams, assorted vegetables and mozzarella balls. Then we shared 2 happy hour appetizers. Meatballs were delicious and crispy fried polenta. Unfortunately then we were too full to get pizza which looked amazing. Can't wait to go back and... More

We first found this place 2 years ago & had to go back on this trip. Love everything about this place. The outdoor seating - surrounded by trees & lights is amazing. Live music playing. The pizza was good. We had a white sauce & a red sauce & all preferred the red sauce. I think that is what we... More

First of all, you can't beat the vibe at this restaurant: beautiful older house in the "inner" city, nice bar in the main part of the house, and a real happening scene in the "front yard" (where most of the younger people were sitting on the beautiful night we were there.) As for the food, pizza is the name of... More
