We stumbled on this place and decided to give it a try after not seeing anything we liked on the wharf. It was a good decision. The food is excellent, I had the ravioli and my wife had the pasta with salmon, both were superb. Service was attentive without being over the top. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly -... More

M wife had a Caesar salad which she... More

Got pulled in by the sound of a jazz trio as we walked back to our hotel after a day off walking along the beach path and visiting the aquarium. We intended to have just one drink and listen to the music before returning to the hotel to change for dinner. We never made it. The drinks were so reasonable,... More

Dropped in for a drink at the bar as it was happy hour, lovely bartender very pleasant. On looking at the menu we decided to go and change and eat there and so glad we did, our waiter was delightful, the meals were gorgeous and probably the best food we had had for a long time, and there was a...

We liked this place, but... Wish I could give it 3.5 bubbles. They had plenty is tables available, but put us two over from the one next to the kitchen. I usually would ask to be moved but wasn't in a complaining mood. The owner (or manager) used the table next to us to sit down. A little awkward for... More

He looked perplexed and said what... More

It is somewhat a challenge serving the group I travel with, we officiate races so all 10 of us each all of our meals together when we are at an event. Many really nice restraunts are challenged to serve this size of group but not for the team of servers at Cibo. Eveeryone got the drink they ordered, the appitizer... More
