An intimate yet vibrant atmosphere is accentuated with expressive art in the form of photography, paintings, sculpture, hand-blown glass and live jazz. Fusing the best of old and new world Italian cuisine, Cibo offers an eclectic menu from gourmet pizzas to multi-course dinners.

We had a very enjoyable evening at Cico. The menu has something for everyone. All staff were courteous and attentive. The food and service were very good.

“Lovely atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

Very pleased with our meal at this restaurant. Friendly staff, lovely atmosphere with Jazz band, despite the strange decor. Service was efficient (maybe a little too quick). Enjoyed our cocktails and delicious wine. No idea how authentic the food is (cf other posts) but it was good.

“Good Food and Ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

My husband and i were visiting Monterey and asked some locals we met for suggestions for dinner. Cibo was one of them. We liked the food. It was not the best food I ever had, but it was good. I had the crab risotto and my husband had the swordfish+salmon skewer. The wines were good. They have live music from Tue to Sun. The Group on Thursdays is very good. We had Tiramissu for dessert and was excellent! The price is reasonable. We had a very good experience overall.

“lovely pizza but service could have been better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

We arrived at 6:30 and were hustled to a table which was fine -asked for our wine choice within 30secs of sitting down! The restaurant was expecting a couple of larger parties and we felt hurried although the food was good.

“Awful service, weak drinks and bland food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

We were a party of 6 having dinner on a Sat night. I can't understand how this place rates so well. The food is far from authentic, the drinks were so weak I felt like I was drinking plain water and the service was so bad - the waiter had absolutely no patience and looked like he hated his job. My dinner was supposed to come with spaghetti squash. The waiter tried to tell me that their sliced zucchini was their spaghetti squash. Wtf?
