Italian
Welcome to Chef Marco Frattaroli's latest creation, Cibo (pronounced chee-bō; Italian for food)! At this eatery, you will discover a focus on oven-fired pizzas, stromboli, and cecina from the imported Ligurian oven (a first for Portland). A select few family-style entrees are additionally spotted on the menu. Cibo is the quintessential place for experimentation, casual fare, and friendly service decked out in decor that’s decidedly modern. Enjoy a counter seat in front of our Pizzaiolo or the Saute Line!

Next time only pizza, salads and small plates for me. Last time the entrees were served about five minutes apart, awkward dinner. However, our server Andi was an angel and the food rustic good.

Food, service, and ambiance were outstanding...food and drinks can be a bit pricey but lots of small plates are reasonable. Love this place and highly recommend it!

I lived in Italy for two years many decades ago and miss that amazing food. Cibo is the closest thing I have found to the authentic food of Italy. The quality is fantastic, the services is wonderful and the ambiance is delightful. Great value too!

The mussels and bouillabaisse were excellent. The calamari & seasoning was very good really liked the seasoning. We also ordered two pizzas and split 3 desserts. Everything we had we really enjoyed. The price was below average for the quality. Make sure you use open table to reserve for your dinner. We zoomed right by the line. Our server was attentive and quickly accommodated us from a party of five to six. The atmosphere is Portland, hipster casual with booths and tables. We celebrated two Birthdays and could not of had a better meal.

Our group of 5 had spaghetti with pesto, spaghetti with clams and a burger and the food was described as very good to delicious, as was the plate of bread and olive oil. Prices were a bit steep, and I am accustomed to having salad It seems they specialize in pizza cooked in the blazing wood fired Italian oven. If we go back again we will try that.

My family took our foreign exchange student here on a Saturday night for some Italian food PDX style. Our reservation was for 7:15 but due to parking limitations, we didn't get there until 7:30 and luckily the staff was gracious about holding our table. We had one of the large booths which helped a little with the loud and boisterous ambiance of a Saturday night. Overall, our food was hot with some dishes reported as underseasoned. It also took over an hour for all five entrees to arrive after a few of us had salads which was frustrating for those who didn't have a starter. The wine was nice, the service adequate and friendly, it was just a crazy Saturday night at this place.

Our old standby for a date night. Good food and warm atmosphere. I recommend the hanger steak and an aperol spritz. FYI: When you make a reservation you are reserving seats at the bar only! They do not reserve tables, according to our host. We arrived early and they were able to accommodate our request for a table, but normally during busy times that may not be possible.

This place is great. Very accessible and casual. The service is attentive but not hovering. You'll wait or want for nothing. Come here to meet a friend for a glass of wine and some nibbles, week night dinner out for two at the counter sharing a bottle of wine or meeting friends for dinner. The food is fantastic. Nice wine list and lots of Italian goodies to choose from. Drop everything and go now!

Everything was great but I had a reservation for 6 and we were put in a booth that was made for 4-5 people max. We were told this was the only option. It was very tight but still we made the best of the situation. The bolonagse was the best.

We were greeted with a long stem white rose for my daughter and me. What a nice touch for Valentines Day. We each enjoyed a house specialty drink for the occasion and it was delicious. Our server was very attentive throughout our entire meal. The food was outstanding. We can’t wait to try the wood roasted pizza on our next visit.

We ordered an appetizer, salads and an entrée. They practically all came at the same time. We were celebrating a birthday but felt rushed. My dish was really really salty.The waitress was really nice but couldn’t control the pace of the kitchen. It was also annoying that she attached a 20% tip automatically even though there were only five of us. I ended up giving her more than the 20% regardless because she was a good waitress.

AJ who manages the seating and greeting people always looks out for us and gets us to a good place. Whether it’s Chrissy or Adam at the bar they’re always great. Mike and the other guy that makes pizza I’m sorry I can’t remember his name really do a great job and they have an excellent Oven marvelous ingredients really make a special pizza. If you like nice big chunks of delicious fennel sausage try their fennel sausage and mushroom pizza. Caesar salad is excellent and we’ve enjoyedTheir wine selection

Due to an error I made in making the Open Table reservation (be careful - the number of guests gets carried over from the immediately prior reservation if you don't remember to change it!), the restaurant had reserved a table for 6 instead of our intended table for 2, but they were exceedingly gracious about the error and seated us promptly, which we appreciated immensely. The ambience was warm and friendly. The wine list small but reasonably priced. The salads were huge. The pizza was excellent. I like this place!!

We have always loved this place, but it's been over a year, and ...gosh... something was up on the night we went. I'm hoping it was just a post-holiday slump...the food was *really* salty. I've never had that problem at Cibo before. The pizzas were also oversalted and soggy. Cibo: you've been such a wonderful part of the neighborhood. Get well soon --we miss our lovely, casual Italian joint!

Food is really great. Pizza is my favorite, but the pasta dishes are always solid, as well as the Ceasar salad. Wait staff stays on top of your table, without being invasive. There is a nice selection of wine at reasonable prices, and they make great cocktails. Stellar!

We had a reservation the night before Christmas Eve and everything went smoothly. Our table was waiting for us when we arrived and even sat us though half our party wasn’t there. The atmosphere was cozy and super cute. The food was delicious. Go for the pasta! The only down side was the special pasta was already sold out which just means have we have to go back and try a special another time! Will definitely go back.
