Had dinner here and we both loved our food. I had pasta with bay scallops and my husband had pasta with rabbit. We shared mussels first and loved them also. Our waitress was chatty and friendly but also efficient. Would definitely recommend.

Chinato is in a great, convenient location and you pay for this in your food prices. The pasta entrees tasted excellent, but $25 for a medium sized bowl is exorbitant. Service was OK in the bar area, but not great - fortunately, we were not in a rush. We will return - we know Zach Bruell will hopefully make menu... More

Infusion is the word to describe the menu between Italian, Latin and comfort food. French onion soup and a pasta dish. All very good.

We saw some of the reviews that indicated there are some folks here who did not like the food, but we thought the food was excellent. We each had radicchio salad, which was only OK to good, but the seafood cannelloni was excellent - three fat cannelloni shells filled with a mix of scallops, fish, and lobster in a buttery... More

What a surprise. I ordered a seafood dish which was absolutely amazing. Scallops, shrimp, mussels, clams and calamari in a semi spicy red sauce. Steve had scallops in a lobster sauce, also amazing.

tiny salads, weren't the best tasting either. Carbonara wasn't good. I did like the swordfish. waiter needed some experience. Pressured us to order and the place was dead and we were in no rush. Place was very slow at 6pm on a friday, that tells you something. overall, not the best, just decent. 2nd time here. Cibreo is much much... More

When I first saw the name I thought it was short for "Chinatown" but this is an upscale Italian on Cleveland's "Restaurant Row." It is owned by Zach Bruell, apparently one of Cleveland's top chefs. Cleveland, like most cities, is dominated by just a few players, particularly at the top end. We began by sharing a pizza with sausage, fennel... More

On a crowded Saturday night, after a baseball game, in downtown Cleveland, this was the only restaurant we went to without a wait. Score! Everyone enjoyed their meals, from pizza to salad to the chicken saltimbocca. Tables were comfortable and service was good. Would probably visit again, but only after trying many of the other restaurants in the city.
