There has been somewhat of a delay to this review but I just had to give credit where due!!
We were in Miami on business and purely out of convenience visited Cibo. (We had been eating out every day in NYC, Toronto, New Jersey and come from London so alot to compare with) there comes a time that you just lose tolerance for bad service or sub quality cusine but much to our delight Cibo was by far the best. So much so our group had lunch/ dinner a total of 12 times in 3 weeks. In that time we sampled most of the menu!!
would recommend the brunch deal, great value. The salads were very generous, fresh and absolutely loved simplicity done well. Pasta, as you would expect for a good italian did not disappoint. Fantastic pizza, this place seems to have a real following for "think outside the box choices" none of which are OTT, all had well thought through flavours. The boards such as the cheese/ cured meats were large enough as a main meal and much more generous than the competiton had to offer. Fish & grills again were delicious. Prices were reasonable and very good value for portion size.
The only negative was the half lobster served with pasta. Too much on the plate & the sauce lacked flavour....would also suggest the chef loosen the lobster tail from the shell if appropriate cutlery is not on hand. Made for a messy lunch but the lobster on its own was great.
lovely ambiance, attentive bar staff that were obviously customer centric. Good selection of cocktails including one with jalapeno peppers, great if you need a kick. well balanced wine list at all price points plus acrobatics to retrieve bottles added a nice touch.
Service; hands down 10/10 to Salvatore and his team. They did everything they could not just for us but every table, this team really cares about loyal custom and quality produce. We couldnt fault any of the waiters/hosts and it seemed like southern charm and manners in abundance as soon as you step foot inside.
From a group also in the service industry we are highly critical so this type of review is "unusual" Last but not least....trust us and go there!!!!
