After trying Pizzeria Bianco 2 years ago for my birthday dinner, I heard about Cibo and wanted to try it out for my birthday dinner this year. My husband and I went down there on a Saturday night around 8:30 and got seated right away. I had the Peach Bellini which was very light and refreshing. I ordered a whole... More

We ate there for the second time as this place is quite a drive for us. The place is very unique, decorated very will for a historical home. The menu is truly authentic. Too many choices to choose from. We ordered the Antipasti Tagliere, 3 Pizzas, Salmone, Salsicca and one more I can’t find on their on-line menu. For the... More

Let me eat cippolini onions and a diavola and those awesome roasted red peppers & I'm done! Homemade limoncello& chocolino, nutella crepes! Beautiful etherial patio in a 1940's house... Can be noisy & warm inside cuz the rooms are small but I'll sweat for food like that any day.

Great little restaurant with good lunch food (didn't get to try it for dinner). We sat outside under umbrellas and a tree or two. Very friendly staff. Highly recommend it.

There are so many wonderful places in Phoenix to get an amazing pizza. This place should be avoided. The owners and staff are rude!!!! When we arrived, we were told that it was a fifteen to twenty minute wait. We put down our name for a party of four. This was our first time trying out the restaurant. We waited... More

I will admit that I am a Pizzeria Bianco fan. Not because of the hype and publicity, but because of the time and ingredients Chris Bianco implements in his creations. No one can top his house-made mozzarella-no one! With that, my husband and I decided to try Cibo on a Tuesday night, supposedly the next best thing after PB. The... More

A colleague took me here during my business trip to Phoenix. It was a favorite of hers and I can now say a favorite of mine - I will definitely go there again next time I'm in Phoenix. It's a little out of the way, in kind of a residential area, and in an old house, but trust me, seek... More

What it is: Reasonably priced,Slightly funky, local middle brow, pizza place. What it's not: Fancy, cookie cutter, The service was good and the decor was nicely offbeat. The food was very very good but not great. The portions are very large and most patrons took food home. I had a salad and a calzone. The calzone was especially good with... More

Great food in an old house with comfortable furnishings. I was there for lunch. Beware -- pizza is not available for lunch. Since the rave reviews are about the pizza, I was a little disappointed. But the excellent saltimbocca made me very happy very quickly. Fresh, fine ingredients. It makes a difference. You may have to be a foodie (and... More
