Did not have napkins or utensils for our party of 4. Had to ask multiple times to bring them. Our main order did not even come, even though they asked us if we were in a time crunch before we ordered (we weren’t initially- but the food never came). Finally the manager came out when it was too late and said someone dropped our food and it would take too long to remake it in time for us to leave for the show we were attending. By the time we were notified of that, it was too late to even go to a fast food joint to grab something on the go. So we just left. The appetizers were terrible, but at least they came.

Awful service. Didn't check in on us. We were sat for 15 mins before she even came by. We only ordered sandwiches for lunch and it took over half an hour to arrive. Took forever to get the bill. Very underwhelming

Really nice restaurant, serving staff was great but we waited a long time for our food.
The walk outside the restaurant along Brandt st. is terrible - stinky from garbage, not sure how people sit on patio. But once inside really nice place, clean and much larger than you think.

Ive never posted a review before but I feel compelled after this dinner. Tables way too close together and the chairs (opposite the booth) are much too short. Uncomforable to eat with my elbows so high and looking up at my partner. The table was too small to hold the complementary bread, appetizer, wine cooler and wine glasses...which should be expected to be on the table at the same time. Food was great, but it was frustrating to eat with 1) the guy behind me hitting my chair every time he got up 2) my front and backside rubbing on people’s chairs as I squeezed my way sideways to the bathroom 3) wine cooler being on a random ledge behind my girlfriend 4) our wine glasses barely fitting on the table 5) having to reach carefully as do not get my dinner jacket dirty because the chairs were much too low. Ate here once before and was longing to come back. This time it seemed way too crammed and I don’t know if the great (GREAT) food, wine and service is worth the frustration to come back again

Celebrated a birthday dinner here with my parents. Service was great. Our food was delicious, however my father's seafood pasta had 3 clams. 2 of 3 were completely closed which means they were not cooked properly. We brought it to the waitress' attention. She immediately went to the kitchen to rectify. The kitchen cooked a whole side portion of clams which was delivered by the manager who apologized. Great service!!

My boyfriend and I were seated immediately upon arrival and our waiter, Juan, was prompt with introducing himself and proving us with water. He gave us a few minutes to look over the drink menu which was extensive and we decided to order a bottle of wine and a beer. The wine showed up within a few minutes but the beer was never delivered to the table. It took our server 40 minutes to come back to our table to take our food order. He admitted that he forgot about our table as he was serving an entirely different section. He did feel very bad about this and proceeded to take our food order and provide us with bread. The food came out shortly after. The polenta fries were very good and the pizza and pasta that we had were also delicious. The waiter did apologize profusely and did comp the pizza and the polenta fries to try make up for it (which is why I gave a 2 star rating due to him trying).We would definitely recommend CIBO for their food but more than likely wouldn’t go back due to the service.

Had dinner for two and ordered appetizers and main dishes. First the arancini was cold. Didnt make a fuss.... then the main diahes came and both were cold as well (the plates were warmer). Service was adequate however tables are tight for guests to maneuver.

We indicated that we were celebrating a birthday but they did nothing to acknowledge the birthday other than saying happy birthday.

I do have problems with lactose and our server did make sure to check with the kitchen about the dish I ordered to make sure it was safe for me which was very much appreciated.

Food is amazing, service was slow even though it was 5pm on a Saturday and place was quiet. Had to look for our own pepper and cheese, eventually found someone to help us, waitress friendly when we saw her but not very knowledgable on wines amd considering its advertised as a wine bar... would still go back for the food and all the other times I've been there the service has been great so maybe new staff on particular occasion, I wouldnt mind myself but we were trying to impress out of towners who know a lot about wine.

The service was pretty good. However, they didn’t bring fresh ground pepper or Parmesan cheese at the time the food was brought out. It was about 3-4 minutes later that the waiter came by to check on the meals and we asked for fresh pepper. It seems trivial, but it should be brought at the same time as the food so you can enjoy your meal while it is warm. Everyone was happy with their chosen dish. There was lots of variety on the food menu and a very extensive wine list. The wine was a bit overpriced so we ordered cocktails instead. The dining chairs are too low for the tables and there are too many tables crammed together. Half the table had to move their chair for the person sitting at the table next to them to be able to get up from their chair.
