Great local Italian restaraunt. Packed with a diversity of age groups - kids, young adults, families, etc. Excellent food and surprisingly large number of wines by the glass.

Nice local UWS restaurant. Service was professional and warm. All of our food choices were yummy, but especially the cauliflower.

This restaurant is a nice neighborhood place to go. It fills in need. I find I go there very in frequently usually when it’s raining usually when I have a guest from out of town and we don’t really want to make any effort to go farther a field that a block from where we live. It could be so much better but management I think either doesn’t care or doesn’t know how to manage the staff. They don’t know how to encourage their waitstaff to walk around see if everybody is happy see if glasses need to be refilled see if dishes need to be taken away. Instead of the staff for years has spent a good deal of time chatting and laughing and holding conventions with each other in the back of the restaurant totally ignoring the patrons upfront. The food is good but just good it’s not excellent. It’s OK the prices are a bit high for what you get. Sometimes you come away and you’ve spent $150 for two people and you haven’t had any drinks and you wonder where/how did the bill get to be as high as it is and you promise yourself that you’ll have more food in the house next week you’ll cook yourself and Young.

They just added pizzas to their menu (lunch and dinner) and they are excellent!! Thin crispy crust and very fine toppings. Great cheese if you're a fan of good mozzarella on your pizza. Just a lovely neighborhood spot with a new cozy bar area recently added on.

Where do I begin?! After being greeted by the extremely pleasant staff, my date and I sat at a beautifully set table. The ambiance is charming! We were promptly greeted by the waitress where we ordered a bottle of fine wine. I can’t say enough about the beyond delicious food! The grilled octopus appetizer was to die for! Followed by wild mushroom tortellini and black cavatelli which were both cooked to perfection! Unfortunately, we did not have time for dessert but we will definitely be coming back for another visit to try some. Five stars for Cibo e Vino!

Arrived at 4pm for early dinner. Was disappointed we were given a brunch/lunch menu. Service was ok. Staff was confused one took our plates and utensils after our appetizers and before our entree. We were never served bread. Didn’t bother to ask. Grilled octopus was perfectly cooked great dressing. Tagatelli with ragu supberb.

Always good and they always ignore the concept of comfortably paced dining.
It can take overly long for wine to be brought to the table- often AFTER appetizers are served - and as soon as first course is cleared, the entrees are on the table.
For European-born owners/staff, the ignoring of pacing is astonishing. And very unappealing.

The seating for 3 people is a VERY small round table so we opted for a high top table which worked out okay. Hostess would not give us a table for 4.
The service was very good and atmosphere cosy and pleasant and the food on the bland side.
I would go back and perhaps try other dishes.
However, I found that the wine serving was measly. figured they got 6-7 glasses out of a bottle.

Cibo is my favorite places in the neighborhood. The space is lovely and warm and the food and service is always great. I have gone there for lunch, brunch, dinner and social hour and every time I have had a great experience. The tagliatelle bolognese is my favorite but have tried most things on the menu and they don't disappoint. The social hour is a very good deal- 50% off of wines and pastas.

Met some friends who were visiting NYC for lunch and we had a lovely time - great service; good lunch and a good location for us. Was relaxed and they accommodated my 15month old with ease. I would return, and recommend!

I was very disappointed to learn tonight that the gluten free pasta is cooked in the same water as the regular pasta. I’ve been going here since it opened and felt ill after my last visit so asked about how they cook the GF pasta tonight. GF is a health issue for me because of allergies.

I asked to speak with the manager and was told she had left already.
There is no point in offering GF pasta if it is prepared this way. Not sure I will be back.

I’ve eaten at Cibo 30+ times. Until recently, food had improved consistently. Owners and staff have always been warm, friendly, responsive.
Usually, even with requests for it to be otherwise, service is overly fast. While not on this occasion, $160.00 later, with three personnel at the door. - including the evening’s host - not a single ‘Thank you,’ or ‘Good night,’.

We met friends from out of town and chose this for proximity to their hotel. Very pleasantly surprised. It’s small - maybe 16 tables - and with a lively bar. The noise level was loud but not deafening; it was possible to converse with out table mates. It was our waiter’s first day, but he was engaging and skilled (although his shift was apparently over in the middle of our meal and a colleague stepped in) and we all enjoyed the food which was carefully crafted and with the chef’s name on the menu to demonstrate his pride and conviction. The menu is somewhat small and limited, but we were able to find dishes that appealed and satisfied.

Such a cute spot--so glad we tried this place out today. Great brunch and lunch options that are reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and doesn't rush you out, and the noise level is reasonable, too. I'll definitely be back!

This is a neighborhood favorite for us. Food is always delightful, attractive and served at the right temperatures. It is really loud , however, which makes full table conversation challenging on a busy weekend night. Talking for two is manageable.

Tasty food! It is the sister restaurant to Marlow on 110th Street which is also a wonderful place. Relaxed and casual vibe. Good place for a nice meal!
