Cibo’s has the most amazing, fresh and unique Italian food. Their cocktails are fantastic with innovative twists. And they have as a bonus wonderful live music for background for your meal.

The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. The owner visited our table multiple times during our dinner and was a very delightful woman. Our server David was attentive and able to accommodate a couple special requests. Overall we were very satisfied.

Recommended with awarding winning Italian food and music and glad it was our only visit. My wife has the sauce from the starter poured over her, lucky napkin, and the service was as abrupt as could be. Pricy for what it was. Avoid

We went to Cibo's twice during our stay in Monterey. They have a great happy hour and we went another night for dinner and jazz. The pappadelle pasta with sausage is great.
