Cibo Matto Ratings and Reviews
Another solid performance by Cibo Matto. Met a friend for a quick dinner before a show. Calamari starter was well-prepared - crisp, light and very tasty - rings and tentacles with a drizzle of marinara. My friend had the gnocchi, which was great and I had the pork cutlet Milanese, which was okay. The sauce was a bit on the oily side, making the dish heavy and a little muddled. Portions were huge and we both took enough home for lunch the next day. I had a glass of Nebbiolo with dinner that was great. We were too full for dessert, knowing how large the portions would be... A bit noisier than we expected and our server was a little bit distracted. Overall very nice.
We have been to Cibo Matto many timmes and we always enjoy it. This past Saturday night was no exception. Our waitress, who I will not name for fear of competition, is always wonderful and one of the reasons we like returning fairly often. We recommend this restaurant to friends all the time.
We have been coming to Cibo for years. We have tried everything and have our standing favorites. We even have fav servers who have been there from the beginning. We know Cibo and how delicious it can be...but we are so disappointed that the last two visits within the past month have been mediocre at best. New chefs?? New kitchen staff?? Whatever it is, fix it.
The shrimp and scallops over tortellini was a waste. Too much of that pickled stuff and they left out the key ingredient-truffle oil laced on top. It tasted bland and a hit of sour.
Antipasto was gross. Old meats and cheeses. Really? Plain goat cheese? It’s like you took it off someones salad. For the cheese board, show off something different. You might as well have just put goat cheese, Parmesan cheese and mozzarella out. Cheap.
Standards have gone down. It’s sad. This was a true gem.
I had heard wonderful things about this restaurant, so I was really looking forward to it. I ordered the beet salad and there was enough dressing on it to dress at least another salad if not more. That was the tastiest part of the dinner, despite having too much dressing. I ordered the roasted chicken and while the skin was nice and crispy, the chicken itself was very dry. Will not go back.
Fabulous cocktail selection. We shared an order of crab cakes which were perfect. Then we shared the steak and cheese pizza, an interesting combination which was excellent. Overall we really enjoyed our meal and the server was charming and engaging. The restaurant was crowded and noisy but the food and drinks were so good that we didn’t care about the noise.
First visit and we are very impressed with the food and the hospitality. Great menu. My wife had shrimp and scallops with gnocchi. I had steak and cheese pizza. Both absolutely delicious
Andy was a great server. The restaurant was a little noisy but not uncomfortably so. We will be back soon
I've always come here and loved it! I recently brought 2 other couples with us and it was their first time coming after me raving about it. I did have a 6:45 reservation and for whatever reason they didn't seat us until 7:30 so I was a bit embarrassed that I highly recommended this place to our friends and they had to wait 45 min to sit down. The manager did acknowledge this and brought us 2 free apps which we appreciated, overall still a great place with great food and I will come back .
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.
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!
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
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.
