    The food was well seasoned and prepared nicely. Service was better than average. Only complaint was in my reservation I noted it was a special occasion (wife's birthday) which was not acknowledged in any way.

    Have tried a few times and each has been better than the first on New Years Eve. Food excellent, great menu selections and range. Very noisy and wish the bar area was a little bigger. Also - my husband is 6'5" and obviously cannot be squashed into a tiny corner so hostess staff could use a little more common sense.

    My wife and I have had the pleasure of dining fairly regularly at Cibo Matto since it opened several years ago. This restaurant started out as a local eatery featuring Italian fare with a flair that has evolved into a first rate gem and hot spot for dining on excellent and creative cuisine. The owner and Chef, Peter, always promotes local and fresh ingredients as he continues to creatively tweak the menu and his recipes, the one more mouth watering than the next. The food here is simply outstanding, good cocktails and an excellent wine list., and the service is always friendly and attentive. Always, always, always pay attention to the Specials as they will never cease to amaze you and will keep you coming back time and time again.

    We have been a Cibo a few times and this time was the best. The salmon entree is by far the best so far. Also, the short rib is very good. The gingerbread sundae is exceptional. The wine by the glass Malbec is not recommended.

    Love this small restaurant. It was deceiving. The place had a city feel of a large place. It was a little loud for a small venue but once the family with small children left, it quieted down. The choices on the menu were fantastic. Everyone can find something as there are many choices. Want a pizza or salad? Or a veal chop? Our table of 6 had it all. Everything was delicious and cooked perfectly! We will make this a regular date spot. Our waitress was very attentive. She was perfect! We will be regulars!

    I was looking to try a new restaurant for my birthday. We were in the Norton area and I found Cibo Matto after a google search for Italian Rest. in Mansfield. It is conveniently located of Rt. 140. I liked the open kitchen concept. The menu and atmosphere were great. The food and wine list was very good. It is worth a try!

    We started meal with Goat cheese salad... Delicious. I had the brined Hampshire pork chop & my husband had the scollop, shrimp. & cheese tortellini both meals were excellent . For dessert we split the gingerbread cake & ice cream. Overall out server was friendly and service was prompt. It's a unique place with casual atmosphere but upscale menu. We will go back...

  • Just OK
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 1/3/2014
    Our second time at Cibo. We found the food to be just OK, nothing special. The potato encrusted cod with spinach was fair. The piece of cod was huge and is actually covered with potato slices, which didn't really add any nice flavor. The spinach was good but a little oily. The kids meals (pasta with butter and grilled cheese) were prepared with excessive oil. The bread of the grilled cheese was soaked with oil. I wouldn't let my kid order that again, just too unhealthy, and she didn't really like it anyways.

    Had reservations for New Year's Eve/wedding anniversary. Vey noisy, waitress obviously more attentive to next (larger) party. Great choices but risotto was tepid, though shrimp special itself was fabulous; Veal chop superb, but again, cold side. Great bread, salad. Will try again though.

    First time visit to this restaurant after receiving a couple recommendations. Arrived 5 mins prior to our reservation time and then waited 20 minutes before we were seated. Water arrived right away and then we waited another 20 minutes before very friendly waitress arrived. No acknowledgement of our wait and rushed us through ordering (drinks and all). Food was slow to arrive. While the appetizer was delicious, the entrees were good, not great and not what was expected. This place has potential if they can figure out how to provide a better, more timely and tasty experience. Will try again just to be sure it wasn't one "off" night for the establishment.

    We just moved to Mansfield, so thought we would try this restaurant on our search to find some new go-to spots. The food was delicious - antipasta platter is a must; and i loved the White Clam Sauce. My husband enjoyed the Short Ribs, with a lot leftover. The table next to us raved about the Rigatoni Bolagnese and the Gnocci. The Creme Brulee was good - good sugar crust - though the whip cream wasn't sweet, sorta odd. Our only "issue" was the wait, even with an OpenTable reservation - but it did help us jump the line and we only waited 15 minutes. We will be back - want to try the pizza!

    We made a reservation in which we were sat timely. It was very busy. We were two and sat at a small two person table between two tables of four. There was absolutely no room it was hard for people to get in and out. The service and food were both excellent. It was uncomfortable speaking because we were basically on top of the other two tables and could hear everything they we saying too. The worst part came when the server asked if she could put a pizza tray between our tables. Their pizza hung over on to our table which was too small to begin with. It's unfortunate because it would be wonderful except for being stuffed in a corner. They really should just remove the two person table from that set up.

    Had a great time with my man celebrating my last day of school. I made reservations in advance, was seated in a booth( which I requested). Service was timely and to the point. I love the ease of the one page menu. Great wine selection, and the food was amazing. I had the sole and my partner had the veal, both cooked to perfection! Loved the vibe of the restaurant as well, energetic and casual at the same time. Will be back.

    I've eaten here at least 2 dozen times and I'm never disappointed. The food quality is always superb. House made pizzas with surprising combinations are fabulous and are cooked in the wood oven. I've never had a bad dish and I've never had the same dish twice. Good wine selection and friendly staff. Always clean. Outdoor bar area is great in the warmer weather. Just a gem.

    My husband and I dine here often. The food is terrific, they have a great wine selection and we always feel welcome. It's so popular that I suggest making a reservation (the weekend wait can be as much as 45 minutes and there's not much room for waiting). Dining at the bar is a great option but get there early or late since it only has about 10 seats. This is a gem for a small town.

    we frequent cibo matto, usually once a month and the food is usually very good. this time, when i ordered the tuna puttanensca i wish i had recalled the advice that Anthony Bourdain gives in the book Kitchen Confidential; ...if Fish is on the menu as a special.... there's probably a good reason! the 3-4 oz piece of tuna while cooked ok was so over-seasoned it was barely edible. instead of puttanesca sauce, it was served over a bed of spaghetti in a tomato/pork meat sauce. YUCK !!!! CLEARLY nothing in this dish resembled puttanesca. This was either a clean-out the kitchen special, hoping the fool that ordered it wouldn't know what to expect, or the cook didn't know what he's doing.

I had the steak and cheese pizza and never got to eat my leftovers because my son ate them. He commented how good it was! Would definitely go back.
