First time at Cibo. Probably should have tested it before making reservations for Valentine's Day. My wife and I were seated at a table for four right by the open kitchen and a high traffic area. Thought of asking for a quieter table for two, many of which were visible on the second level, but decided to just sit put where we were. The service was good considering how busy they were. My linguine with mussels was fine but my spouse's tagliatelle was just OK with a shortage of the meat ragu. We would like to return for a casual lunch and try the pizza. Definitely not the right ambience for romance or a special occasion.

We did not have a good experience at Cibo on 17Ave. It took 45 minutes to get out good and when we got it, it was cold. They also forgot one of the orders. The waitress barely checked on us, overall it was a terrible experience. The food is quite pricey for what they serve.

Our server disappeared after we asked for the bill and we waited for at least 20 minutes before asking someone else for it. Also upgraded the whiskey in our drinks and wasn't told it would be an addition $5 above the price. The drinks ended up being $17.50/each which anyone can agree is outrageous!

We had the Spaghetti special and it was 3 courses for $16. Caesar salad was delicious. I had the spaghetti and meatballs. My friend didn’t’ want the meatballs so they accommodated her with a substitution of 3 veggies - peppers, mushrooms and olives. She loved it. My main was very tasty. We were surprised we got 4 pieces of garlic toast as well. The waiter. David, was very good. He was attentive, polite and accommodating to my friend who is picky. She requested he chill her glasses of red wine which he did. Our meal was amazing for the price. I just love this restaurant!

First visit, very impressed. Had the Linguini/Mussels...very delicious, started with appetizers of bruschetta and prosciutto which were both amazing. Will we go back? ABSOLUTELY. Great service and other than the fact that it was quite loud my husband and I both loved it. Having said that, the hostess was gracious enough to put us at a table next to to a wall which did help the noise factor. A very enjoyable meal and will look forward to our next visit.

Half price pasta and wine night is one of my favorites times and makes this the "must go" place for me on Mondays. No where else can you get delicious foods and two glasses of wine for under $20.00!!

My family and I love going to Cibo for Happy Hour. All the pizzas are $5 and the food is always delicious. We haven’t dined at Cibo for awhile but ever since they started doing the $5 pizza’s it was such a steal that now we can’t get enough of it.
The staff is always so nice and friendly. Would definitely recommend this place!!!

We love going to Cibo especially Sunday’s which is half priced pizza night. Food is always good! This particular visit I tried to book a table for 7 but was unable to on OpenTable so we called the restaurant and the hostess was adamant that they didn’t have room over dinner for a booking of this size. I was able to book a table for 3 and 4 and hoped we could be seated nearby. When we arrived the gentlemen at the door was more than willing to accommodate our table of 7 request which was great but the restaurant was dead the whole time we were there so we were a little surprised and annoyed that our original request was denied and we had to go through all the trouble of making two reservations for no reason.

For appetizers we decided to share the Arancini and the Spinach salad. Arancini was amazing but the salad’s dressing seemed a little off so we sent it back and got a Caesar salad, which was good. Our daughter had a kids pizza that is actually adult-sized and meatballs, which were both very good. we’re not sure if it was because we sent our salad back, but when we received our entrees they were very dry and over cooked; maybe they were under a heat lamp for a while. However, management comp’d most of our meal (they actually offered to comp everything but we wanted to pay for what was good) and brought us an assortment of free desserts. So, good service and management, but the kitchen had an off-night.

Cibo is always a great dining experience. For this visit, we took advantage of their $5 pizza happy hour and they were delicious as always. Especially love the sausage pizza. Good bang for your buck. Will return soon!

Food is always incredible and Cibo and we are never disappointed . Only criticism, if any, would be for the server to given us a bit more help with the menu, to help choose what we wanted. It was my parents first time and they needed some help decided and didn’t get much feedback from our sever. Other than that, it was a wonderful experience.

We've been to Cibo over a dozen times, and this was by far the worst experience we had. Not sure if it was due to us having a later reservation or that it was NYE, but we were bounced between 3 different servers who must have assumed "the other server was looking after us", as we waited for our drinks for over half hour, and the exact same thing for our second round. Food was good, service was extremely subpar for a slow evening.

Two flies in iced beverage. No pineapple on Hawaiian pizza. Pasta was far more than al dente, which resulted in soggy dough and filling falling out of ravioli. Overall the tastes were good, with far better options on appetizer/starter menu. Would come back here just for more tapas-style dining and forgo the main courses. Perhaps entertain 1/2 price pizza on Sundays.

Here's how you can have a solid dining experience like we did:

Go to Cibo on a Thursday at 8:30 PM. This way, you can take advantage of the evening special of 5 scodellina for 20 bucks (or 3 for 12). Come 9 PM, the late night happy hour begins and you can grab beer or wine for 4 bucks, select pizzas for 5 bucks, and select scodellina for 4 bucks. It's filling, high quality food for what I think is great value.

PS. My favourite scodellina were the lamb meatballs, arancini, and roasted cauliflower.

I have been to CIBO several times and unfortunately this time it was loud, the service was average and the food was cold. This is a busy time of year and the restaurant was full which is good for them but not for customers who would like to hear each other across the table.
