About Cibo Bistro
“Cibo" (pronounced CHEE-bo) means food in Italian, and that’s what this Italian Bistro is all about. We like to keep the menu simple, tasty, and focused, using fresh local ingredients. Cure our own meats, make our own cheese and hand roll our pasta. We try to make almost everything in house with a menu that changes seasonally.
* Due to the popularity of our weekends, parties of 4 or less are requested to limit their stay to 2 hours in courtesy of reservations booked after them, thank you in advance *

Cibo Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Exceptional Service and Very Accomodating
We were so pleased with this restaurant. We arrive a little late for our reservation but they had no issue. We were sat immediately. I am Gluten intolerant. The server was very familiar and gave me my options immediately.
All food was fantastic.
Great Food, A bit pricey
We had a fantastic dinner here although I did have a few negative points. For one, we had made a reservation at off hours and they plunked us in the middle of the restaurant in front of the till. I'm not sure why since all the other tables were empty... also I felt the food was EXTREMELY pricey. We ordered the salumi as an appetizer and I was seriously not expecting the minuscule amount we got for the price. However, our service was outstanding and the food was, of course, amazing.
the options for gluten free items were limited at lunch,however the dinner menu looks very promising. the great thing is that 2 out of 3 desserts were gluten free---which was a real treat! the pana cotta was excellent. our server was great checking out the ingredients to make sure items were gluten free.

The lunch menu at Cibo is limited - probably twelve items tops - and yet, with the options available, we still have trouble making up our minds. That's what happens when every single item is delicious - so introspection is required. Do I feel like one of their hand-crafted pasta choices? Or a thin crust pizza? The baby arugula salad has virtue on its side, and so it goes... I am always dubious about kitchens that have too many options. How can what you're making in that kitchen be fresh when there are literally 50 dishes on the menu? I love Cibo for lunch because it is fresh, it is delicious, it is served promptly and it is great, great value.

Very disappointing, lunch menu very limited. Arrived a few minutes before 11:30 told to come back as staff was just setting up. This raised flags but because my friend from Mexico was to meet me there, I did not have time to contact her to make other arrangements so we persevered and shared the soup and a horrible thin crust pizza which was barely edible. Will not return to this place for sure.

to start our meal, chef Caputo sent over a glass of prosecco, thats a great way to start a meal, our riccotta appetizer was fantastic, we also shared the halibut and the steak entree, both equally amazing. our server checked in on us just enough, and the doughnuts to finish were delightfully fluffy. my entire experience was amazing, i will be back next time i am in town for sure!!!
Not what I was expecting
I have been to Italy and I see that they are trying to create a true Italian environment. Sorry, maybe I don't appreciate fine dining anymore, but I found the prices significantly above average and the portions relatively small. Good variety of higher end items, but overall it is not a place I would recommend to someone else.

My wife and I recently had a wonderful evening at CIBO Bistro. The food was outstanding as was the service. We would both heartily recommend CIBO Bistro to all of our friends and we intend to return soon. It was a superb experience!
First timer - Taste doesn't match its Price
My friend and I chose this restaurant because we wanted to try good Italian food and apparently the Cibo Restaurant ranked amongst the top in the city. We ordered "Salumi", "Fedelini alle Vongole", "Agnolotti", Chocolate Cake, 2 glasses of red (2009 Shardana Valli Di Porto Pino IGT) , and a special gelato of that evening. None of the dishes are outstanding to us. The clams in the Fedelini alle Vongole were tiny and the sphagetti was dry. The waitress was very friendly and polite. But for the price and the taste of the food, my friend and I decided that we will not go back for the second time. If you like delicious food and don't mind paying a little more, I would totally recommend "Rdg Road" over this restaurant.

Overall, Cibo Bistro was disappointing. The service was good at first but quickly dropped off until it was time for the bill. The pasta was unpalatable due to being too heavy on the salt and pepper. I couldn't tell if it was the salt or pepper that was burning my lips and throat. My friends enjoyed their steaks and bruschetta though. We will not be back due to our negative experience; however, do recommend trying non pasta dishes.
ITALIAN FARE JUST SO-SO
The arancini balls and Sicilian olives were delicious, however the buckwheat papardelle noodles in mushroom ragu left a lot to be desired.
The ragu was non-existent and the noodles just had no taste. Why not cook with regular parpadelle noodles and quit skimping on the sauce.
Pretty expensive dish to boot!
Dessert was much tastier. Those limoncello donuts were light and fluffy with a nice dusting of icing sugar.
Lunch with the ladies
I went for lunch with my mom and my sister. We were all surprised (pleasantly!) buy the food. The polenta appetizer and the lemoncello donuts in particular were hits. This is a great place for a casual lunch, but I'd love to try them for dinner.
Very authentic Italian
The polenta fries with aioli served in a brown paper cornet were delicious! I'd go back just for those - but share or you'll spoil your dinner. The beef steak with rapini and heritage tomatoes was excellent and a very generous serving. Cooked perfectly! Had a side of potatoes roasted in duck fat which seemed pricy at $11 but was well worth ignoring your diet.
Very attentive service and good advice on wine.

Very good food. Great appetizers. Rabbit leg was slightly over cooked/dry. Only real issue was the service. The waitress seemed to be in a big rush in interactions even though it was a slow night. Also they seated a couple right beside us so close you felt you were together even though the restaurant was close to empty. Seemed odd.
Pricey and pretentious
I have been to Cibo 4 times - each time I walk away with a sense that the food is great but the portions are too small and the value is not there. Everytime I go I expect it will be a better experience than it is. I won't try again - there are other places where the food is as good and the value is significantly higher
Fabulous pasta and starters
We recently enjoyed delectable starters -- octopus, arancini and veal meatballs were outstanding. Would have been sufficient as they were filling, but the special wild boar ravioli and sable fish entries were outstanding. Great service too.

We loved our first meal at Cibo Bistro, and will definitely return to try more of the menu. Our meal was outstanding, and the service was excellent . We didn't love our table, which was right in front of a decorative glass wall immediately inside the entry. I suspect that table was added in and not part of the original design. Next time, we will ask for different seating.
