“Great authentic Italian meal!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Great Italian cafe right on 4th Street in St. Pete! The dishes are diverse and true to the Italian roots... not at all generic in taste. The wine selection is impressive for this size restaurant and the service has always been very accommodating! One of St. Pete's best kept secrets!

“In the past Always was Excellent, Not this time, dinner was luke warm and service was almost non-existant”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

For many years we have always enjoyed everything we ever ate at Cafe Cibo and we gave it and excellent review in June 2012.
Not this time; On Monday, March 11, 2013 we ordered Chicken Marsala and Spaghetti and Meat Balls. Their famous bread cake like was stale as well as the bread. My Spaghettii and the Meat Balls were served luke warm and the meat balls and sauce did not taste the same as in the past. My wife's Chicken Marsala was also served luke warm and something was missing. Regarding the service; it must have been an off day also as it was almost non-existant. Maybe it was because it was a Monday, but that should not matter.

We will try Cafe Cibo again, but not on a Monday

“Excellent Italian in North St. Pete”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

First went to this place about 6 years ago. It's a wonderful little cafe with outstanding food. A bit small, but still has outstanding food and service. Great place to stop for an authentic Italian pizza on your way home from work.

“Excellent Italian Cafe in North ST. Peteersburg”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Four of us visited Cafe Cibo for the first time recently and we all were very impressed with the food and service. Traditional Italian entrees such as chicken/veal or eggplant parmesan were very good but there were many more options to chose from including several pasta dishes and fish and pork entrees and pizza as well. Each meal also comes with a salad and a pasta side. Portions are generous, quality excellent and service timely. The bread is also excellent including a delicious dipping sauce. If you are a new customer and sign up for their club on line you will get a coupon for a free bottle of wine with dinner.

“Great food at affordable prices!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Surprised at the quality of food here. Nice size portions, great service, friendly atmosphere. Small for a cold rainy night but outside seating doubles the size. The kitchen will prepare what you want if you don't see it on the menu and although they have a full bar and good wine for a reasonable fee of around $10 you can bring your own wine. Will definitely be back again.
