This lovely, friendly, restaurant in a wasteland of good dining spots lost its lease with SL Green who doubled the rate with no negotiation. Our "go to" favorite is gone after 22 years. I am in mourning!

We went here recently with a group of 10 on a Sat night. Made reservations a week ahead of time and were seated when we arrived. Good food & good service.

Went with friends and totally enjoyed ourselves. The appetizers were a bit sparse but the entrees were terrific.

Described as having Tuscan-New American fare. Would suggest that the menu leaned more towards plain Italian and there was little evidence of New American in any of the offerings

Decor was dated, although the dining room was decked out for Valentine's Day with red slipcovers on all the chairs.

Food and service were decent enough, but I would not place this establishment on a list of must-do returns.

Had difficulty making my reservation. Cibo's reservation system was not available for days.
Overall, we had a very enjoyable evening.

Great food, great service, very accommodating for a business luncheon party of six (or more!).

Cibo is a favorite go to place in the neighborhood as it never disappoints. Food and service are good, and prices reasonable. I've never been disappointed.

My wife and I had another wonderful meal at Cibo this Martin Luther King weekend. Even though our neighborhood offers several excellent restaurants, this place stands out for the consistent quality of its food and service. We have noticed that the standard of quality at some restaurants declines during a holiday weekend. This is certainly not the case at Cibo.

Celebrated a 60th birthday gathering with 5 high school friends and Cibo was the perfect place. I had made a reservation and even though we arrived early, they were ready for us. We were seated in an "alcove" type of table which gave us privacy and the freedom to have fun and not interfere with others dining experience. The staff was friendly and professional (and very patient considering it took us awhile to be ready to order, lol). The food and drinks were excellent, everyone liked everything that they ordered. Prices reasonable for Manhattan. Definitely recommend.

We were initially not given the corner table requested. However, the manager finally agreed - which was nice. Good food, service and ambiance.

Went with friends to dinner at Cibo.
Service is fabulous and ambiance was lovely.
Cozy and warm, nice bar.
We ordered the fish and chicken and it was nicely prepared and very tasty. Nice sides with it.
The food temperature was perfect and the portions generous.
The cocktails were great and the wine good.
I recommend Cibo for a delicious dinner and cozy atmosphere with excellent service.

Good place for brunch. Disappointed they had run out of mussels. We've been to this restaurant many times.

Always reliable nice cozy restaurant near Grand Central. The dinner 3-course prix-fixe menu of $39 was excellent value with a wide selection of appetizers, main courses and dessert. The menu changes ensuring fresh ingredients for the season. A little bit tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Grand Central and yet close by made this a great place for a quiet conversation in mid-town.

Four of us had sunday brunch at Cibo. It's a great spot to catch up with friends for a few hours while enjoying very tasty food. We all had different entrees, each was very good. Two courses including a cocktail and coffee for $20 is a fabulous value in such a lovely, friendly setting.

We had a lovely Christmas dinner. Though we did have a choice of a few items, we chose turkey, which was excellent; however, we laughed to ourselves that we just spent $200 for turkey!

Cibo is a perfect restaurant! My wife and I go there often and we have NEVER been disappointed. Long may it reign.

Christmas dinner was very special, aside from several menu choices they had a full roast turkey dinner that was like being at mom's. The staff was very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. For the years we have been visiting Cibo there has been no problems other then overeating. Try the Pomegranate Martini, or two! Butternut squash soup, NY Strip, salads and deserts. The only problem is picking what to eat. We will be returning.
