“Quant, Authentic Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Have travelled to Italy many times, and this is an authentic italian restaurant, right here in our backyard!! The food is delicious, the service impeccable, and the atmosphere in the restaurant is perfect.
CIBO does not dissapoint.

Salute!

“Not as good as it used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We used to go every Friday night but it seems to have lost its touch. The food is pricy and the last time we were there we had a ceasar salad which was a plate of leaves with the dressing on it and stuff on the side. I can appreciate an attempt to change presentation but it just did not work considering it was $10 and when I was looking down at the plate it made me realize how overpriced it was! Tracey is a great waitress and you are lucky if you get her. It has become a bit too hit and miss for the price.

“An amazing find; the chef truly cares and understands food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

Wonderful find! Any place that can pull off excellent homemade soup and salads with something extra can do anything. The pasta was perfectly al dante in the soup. The chicken in the sandwich was not processed, the arugula salad stood without iceberg or romaine. Service was excellent, though they could have used a second set of hands. We took this as a good sign, as it demonstrates the recognition of good food through number of customers!

“Good food but pricey!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We have been to Cibo's several times but I doubt we will return. The food was good, not great, but the prices were too high for what we had. The rooms are small and noisy. The Caesar salad was a joke, a wedge of lettuce with the dressing drizzled over it! My husband had the Fettuccine Frutta di Mare. He said it was OK but has had better. I had the pasta special of the night and I found it tasty. It was the price point that has turned us off Cibo's. It just isn't worth the prices charged!
