COCKTAILS•DINNER•JAZZCibo (pronounced chee-bo) means food in Italian, but it’s more of a feast for the senses. An intimate yet vibrant atmosphere is accentuated with expressive art in the form of photography, paintings, sculpture, hand-blown glass and live jazz. Fusing the best of old and new world Italian cuisine, Cibo offers an eclectic menu from gourmet pizzas to multi-course dinners.

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.

We really enjoyed this beautiful restaurant while on a short escape to Monterey. We found it when we searched for jazz and dinner. It was rated as one of the best restaurants for both. We made our reservation a little too early for jazz, but enjoyed the ambiance none the less. The food was fantastic! We had a coupon from... More

Celebrated my birthday here, with a wonderful meal, fabulous cocktails, perfect music and a surprise dessert. Staff were sweet and very attentive. Would highly recommend the carpaccio.

Celebrated my wife's parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary there August 13, 2014. Could not have been happier, we had an age spread from a four-year-old to a 75+ year-old and everyone had a most enjoyable evening. James was our waiter and he never missed a beat. Rosa, the owner even joined us for a toast the happy couple. We felt spoiled... More

Reasonable prices, decent food, but sometimes overwhelmed by raucous people at the bar and with spotty service.

It was an okay restaurant. My husband had the octopus and said it was delicious. I had some pasta that was uninspiring. I was disappointed as I LOVE pasta. It is really loud in this restaurant, so try to get a table at the back. Service was prompt and very nice.
