Stumbled into this restaurant when the Farmer's Market folded up on a Wednesday night. The Gnocchi Trio was great! Enjoyed the jazz singer performing standards. The wait staff was friendly and attentive.

A very good Italian restaurant in Old Monterey. Pleasant interior, close to hotels and attractions. Full bar, good service and comfortable. Fair prices, too.

We always come over here when we stay at Portola Plaza. They have a great happy hour--even on Saturday!! The bartender is always friendly and efficient. It can get pretty busy in the bar area. Drink and appetizer specials are the draw. We had lots of rum and pines and a personal pizza. It was all really great. I understand... More

Had the pleasure of eating at Cibo while in Monterey, Calif. on business. The food is excellent, it is presented beautifully and the menu is a mix or Italian and Seafood. Also, they had an extensive wine list. And if you still have room for desert, try the Tiramisu. An enjoyable dining experience.

We visited this restaurant on our recent visit to Monterey. The food was beautifully presented and full of flavour, the service was good, if a little rushed, and the atmosphere enjoyable. If we had stayed longer we would have definitely revisited.

Visited on a busy evening and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Very good singer and great to see people (? regulars?) get up and dance. Service a bit perfunctory but okay. All in all recommended.
