Partly our bad not checking the menu to see if they were going to have a brunch/breakfast, but no clear indication on the site that they were still specifically operating at a reduced menu (with out checking the actual menu) Again, my bad.

They are known for their breakfast and it is sad to see that they couldn't do a Sunday brunch even as an extended limited menu just for Sunday.

We had tried 2 other places to have brunch both were either an hour wait time or booked for the entire day and turned away.

It was empty when we went - I hope this lack of breakfast doesn't negatively impact them.

Honestly, I ordered the chicken parm. The chicken was totally normal. Not outstanding at any level. Just a solid 5 out of 10. However, even though they make fresh pasta, that was truly the worst spaghetti I've ever eaten in my life. It was so dry, with almost no sauce and a tiny bit of grana padano. I had to ask for more sauce and even when adding more sauce, it wasn't enough. I've never had such bad spaghetti in my life. My guess also ordered the same thing. Truly the worst plate of food I've ever ordered in a restaurant in a long time.

The server was very professional. Too bad he has to work for such a bad kitchen. What a waste of a beautiful setting.

Everyone there is so mellow and relatable. Always impressed with all the dishes, really great culinary textures and very consistent. Quite the incredible location, any season any weather.

My husband and I were married here, and although this venue will always hold a special place in our heart, it's always wonderful and delicious despite our bias.

First, when we got there at our reservation time, we had to stand outside for at least 15 minutes waiting for a table on there ridiculously small patio. The view was nice, considering we got the one seat with a direct water view, & the food & drink were to die for. But the service wasn’t all that perceptive of our desire to sit for a while after eating. Because as soon as they picked up our plates we were hit with the unsolicited check. & then he came right behind that w the debit machine!
All in all, because the food & drink were such of such a redeeming quality, I guess I would give them another shot. Because I know that great, consistent, quality service is hard to reproduce 24/7/365

Pickerel and mushroom pizza were unreal. Skip the Beet + Beef Salad. It reads as a beet salad, its a steak salad with 4 small pieces of beet. Not quite worth the $20 price. Everything else was fantastic. Server was present when needed, but let us enjoy our meal on our own, A+.

My reservation was originally for 6:30. However, we were running late and asked if we can delay it until 7:30. CIBO was more than accommodating. We were welcomed as soon as we walked into the door. All the servers were extremely kind and always smiling, they topped our water as soon as it was empty. The food came out quickly and it tasted amazing. I will be recommending CIBO to everyone1

It was ok. I was expecting a little more selection on the menu but i guess it was reduced due to the pandemic limitations.

We visit this place many times and we love it. Location is perfect and so is the service. The menu selections are less now, I would guess because of the pandemic. Food is very tasty anyway. The only thing I would suggest for this place would be that the upper part of the dining area / lounge could use of a renovation (maybe new floor and table / chairs ?).

Been to Cibo many times but honestly quite turned off by menu and quality of drinks....
We used to come for drinks and apps but completely opposite in quality and care with drinks and might I say meal. Did not taste or texture anything fresh....

Have to say, little disappointed and not sure when or if we’d come back.....
