We were seated at a table that was pretty close to others. As another party was seated, the woman looked at me and said "these tables are too close for comfort". It was a bit awkward after that. I have dined here before and couldn't wait to come back. This time the food was off. I ordered the bolognese. The sauce had an overwhelming taste almost that it was burnt to the bottom of a pan. My husband ordered the meatballs and just said "definitely not the best- I think I ordered the wrong thing. The ceaser salad was kind of sad with maybe two croutons. Another table next to us was admiring an order that came out to another table saying the other dishes had so much more on them and their dinners lacked. I was pretty bummed out. It seems as though the kitchen may have had an off night. I was really hoping this would have been better since I traveled from Worcester to dine here. I don't think I'll make the trip again.
Great go to for friends get together. Our friends loved the creative drinks. I love the mussels!
Great food and great service. I'm never disappointed. Great bartenders!
Food and service were outstanding. The chicken piccata is the best I've ever had. It was a Thursday night, very busy and we were seated at a hightop table between the people waiting at the bar and the waiting area so it was extremely loud. Would wait for a regular table next time, but will definitely go back!
i would recommend making reservations as they fill up fast. Nice restaurant with good food and service.
Our friends were in from Vegas and we had a great dinner. They loved the place, food and service. It is always a 10!!!
Weekday evening and we were seated immediately. I had a chicken and broccoli pizza with a cream sauce. It was very good and I like the opportunity to have a "small" meal. Service was prompt and friendly.
One of my favorite restaurants. Absolutely delicious
We have been coming for years! I think maybe even since year one. My family has tried most of the menu and on occasion whatever specials that sounded good. Come to think of it, we have either not been for dinner in awhile or I don’t recall seeing a specials list??
In any case, we are regulars. We know the menu. We know how the plates should look, smell and taste. So this lady vidit was so disappointing! Our standard fried calamari was undercooked and some pieces not even floured well. They sat plainly with very little sauce only at the bottom almost nothing there. Just not right.
My son always, and I mean always gets the chicken Parmesan w homemade ziti. It usually has a large chicken breast on top of the pasta. This visit he got two tiny cutlets, half the size than our usual. I ordered the chicken w broccoli and ziti. This was delicious and as we have come to love.
What’s with the poor changes? Don’t start going downhill!! Please! We really love it there. Maybe it was a new chef? If so? Please train them to the standard that Cibo is known for!!
Not our first time there, but I was disappointed in my meal.....I got the roasted apple pizza that also included bacon, caramelized onions and a balsamic drizzle....I found it to be very bland, considering everything that was on it....But....you can't score every time so we will be back, no doubt
Always great. Loved the salmon that I added on to my salad order!
Service was great! Food excellent! Would definitely come back.
Salmon was overcooked, rest of party said food was just okay. Service was very friendly but seemed busy and distracted. May try again, but not likely.
Not necessarily an ideal date night venue only because seating is close, but great place for meeting up with friends or family. Food is always good to great, service is great and attentive, prices are reasonable, draft beer an wine selections are broad and tasty. We always look forward to heading there for a meal.
overall it was very good...service was excellent as always
Food is always exceptional
It started off not so good- the hostess and three other people talked amongst themselves as we waited and waited..10 minutes
But our server was great and good was very good. So all in all worth it.
My sister and I brought our dad here for his birthday. We went at lunch since he has a hard time hearing when very noisy so dinner would have been a problem. Our servicer was very attentive and nice. I didn't realize you had to choose from the dinner menu for lunch on Sunday but the portions were huge so we all had leftovers to bring home. The chicken piccata was delicious and the crème brulee with the little biscotti cookies was one of the best I've ever had. I was also thrilled now that summer is over that they keep the windows closed. We've had issues in the past when dining there at night swatting at flies and mosquitoes since they don't have screens in the windows. Cibo Matto is back on the fave list.
Overall the experience was not great. Our waitress seemed overwhelmed with too many tables. Service was slow. My entree of chicken & broccoli was not good. It tasted like the broccoli wasn't dried properly so the cream sauce tasted like broccoli water. My husband enjoyed his linguine with clam sauce. The waitress took my flavorless dish off our bill and quite generously had the kitchen make me a pizza at no charge. I have had great lunches there. This was just not a good night.
Elise was the best server ! The food and rinks were also amazing !
Great meal and service as always. Try it you'll like it too.
I have had many wonderful meals at Cibo Matto's in the past. Tonight meal was just ok except for the perfect blueberry panna cotto and a reliable Pinot Noir (Meiomi).
I ordered the special, Roast Bass. The fish was served whole so it was necessary to debone it. I confess I need to brush up on my deboning because a dozen bones ended up in my mouth one at a time. The flesh of the bass was perfectly cooked and moist. I chose to remove the skin as it was kind of limp not crusty. I think pesto had been used to top it and I felt it did not compliment the couscous with spinach and cherry tomatoes. I was looking for low cal (yeah , I know, panna cotto is not low cal).
Service was great. This was the second time I was disappointed because I had been spoiled. The first time I asked if the chef had changed and was told "yes, but it's only temporary".
Haven't been in a while...we ate our meals outside
Excellent service and quality of food. Wait staff are so friendly and supportive. The reception desk staff always greet you in a very sincere and friendly manner.
Love this restaurant! I’m always happy with the food and drink and ambience!
The food was delicious and served in a very timely manner! The best part was they held our reservation for a half hour - our lateness due to traffic! We'll be back!
Great service, terrific food. Enjoyed before Pats game and was easy access to stadium. Went there on recommendation of a friend who is a "foodie."
Such great food, all the time! Seemed maybe wait/bus staff was overwhelmed or understaffed because it was busy for a Weds night, and the service wasn't as attentive as it usually is. Otherwise an amazing meal!
Always such great food here! It is one of the best restaurants in the area by far.
Food was delicious. The waitress was very helpful in explaining all the dishes we asked about.
Delightful meal on their patio and friendly, responsive wait service throughout our meal; straight-up pasta bolognese is perfectly spiced and was a welcome, hearty meal for two of our party that evening. My wife had gnocchi which was also very good ... and the warm basket of bread and olive oil is memorably good!
Can't say enough about how great this place is. Service is great, food is amazing and the environment is fun.
This was a last minute dinner to our 'go to' spot and once again, it did not disappoint. The restaurant was fairly quiet when we arrived but busy when we left. My wife ordered the spicy sausage pizza and was thrilled with it. I had the beet salad with salmon and it was also very good. We usually order one of the specials but tonight it was from the menu. Confirming this will continue to be our favorite restaurant in Mansfield.
We dine at Cibo fairly regularly but had not been there for several weeks. The food, as always, was very good to excellent, our cocktails were great and our server, Jenna, is always terrific. Since it's also a good value, it would be very difficult to find a reason not to go there.
This is a local restaurant for us and has good food and service. Nancy was our server and everything was prompt. Food choices are good - salads, pizza, soup and main courses.
Dined for the first time on 8.19.17 prior to a show at X-Finity which is very nearby. The food, service and location were perfect for us and all four of us enjoyed the experience. The staff was super friendly and answered all of our questions regarding the menu even giving recommendations, when asked. We love this restaurant and hopefully will be back again soon when we are in the area.
Calamari was quite different and delicious. Sweet and tender. I had the pappadelle with the Bolognese sauce, perfectly cooked pasta and the sauce was terrific. My husband had the spinach and feta ravioli which he enjoyed. Of course them homemade bread is delicious and crusty. Perfect with the dipping oil !
Good service, fair prices, excellent food, nice atmosphere, will visit again for sure!
Wonderful as usual! Great food, a nice selection of specials, consistently good service.
