This is my second time eating at this CiBo's. I like the menu, the service and the way the food is presented. The reservations were confirmed twice before we got there and they accommodated my request to turn the music down when we were seated. I recommend it highly.

The food and service were great. The gentleman acting as the host was very hectic acting when we arrived. He was also regularly throwing unfinished waters into the street from the outside tables rather than taking them into the kitchen to properly dispose of them. He then came to my table of four and let us know the next party to be seated was waiting for us to leave. We were finished but enjoying after dinner conversation and wine and we had not over stayed our reservation. Our reservation was at 7pm and he came to our table at 8:45pm to let us know the next party was waiting. We had drinks, appetizers, entree, wine and an after dinner wine. I didn’t appreciate being asked to leave or hurry up. We were big fans of Paul’s and love the food at Cibo and the atmosphere. However, the host took away from the experience with all of these things we experienced.

My friends and I had a very enjoyable evening. The food beginning with the bread basket was delicious. The warm bread with the pesto butter spread is perfect to get the taste buds going. My friend who is on a special diet requested for grilled shrimps and scallops and a side of spinach. Although this was not on the menu, the chef gladly accommodated. She was raving about how good it was. All of us are planning to return with family and friends.
Lisa the manager was very welcoming as always.

The waitstaff here are exceptional, and the bartender mixes drinks well, so that's great...but certainly didn't predict the entirety of the experience. Food here comes out fast...I mean so fast you don't even have a moment to enjoy the experience of dining out. My party ordered 2 dishes...rigatoni alla vodka and veal piccata. They came out about 60 seconds after we ordered. The pasta was fine, cooked properly, but a bit boring. But rather than Alla Vodka sauce, it had marinara sauce. The veal was served with mushroom risotto and a lemon caper wine sauce. This veal dish was terrible. For a 25 dollar plate, it was reminiscent of a Salisbury steak and rice dish you'd be served in an elementary school. The veal itself was similar in texture to shoe leather and the rice was under seasoned and had an off texture. If you get in the mood to try this meal, go buy steamfresh mushroom risotto in the freezer section and patty out some hamburger, then top it off with gravy and a squeeze of lemon, and you'll have a better time. I didn't send the food back because I was very hungry and exhausted from the long day. Sadly I saw their review and was very hopeful for the experience but other reviews were very misleading. I might try it one more time just to make sure they weren't having an off night.

CiBo is always a go to when I want a nice meal with good service. The people that work here are very accommodating and the food is outstanding. Every time I come to Winston-Salem I make sure that CiBo is one of my stops, and every time I go I am even more impressed. I would definitely recommended coming to CiBo!!

First time visit. Food was excellent. It's the best I've had in Winston Salem and I've visited most other Italian restaurants in the area. I will for sure return in the near future. Pasta Fagoli soup was very good.

We ate outside on a very chilly October night. The heaters were plenty but not enough for our table. I recommend bringing a cushion and a blanket. The ambiance not the patio is perfect and worth being a little cold. Food was ample and tasty and the service was excellent. We will be back for sure.

We had a wonderful outdoor dinner at CiBo. The food was excellent, the drink menu was fun, and the outdoor patio was so cute and warm with the patio heaters. Our daughter loved it so much she went back the next night. We will be back too!

We were in from DC for a long weekend. We arrived late and were still welcomed warmly and they found us a table.
The service was attentive, but unintrusive.
The food was great.

Comforting Italian food and the best in town thus far! I particularly loved that they didn’t skimp on the homemade sauce. Service was excellent! My only complaint is that the music was a little too loud. My husband and I found ourselves having difficulty talking over it and we were sitting right next to one another, however it will not keep us from dining again soon.

Sat outside on the sidewalk. Beautiful evening. Great urban setting for dining at two-person tables in the front. Saw a very nice patio with larger tables outside as well. Inside is very nice with ambient lighting, a robust bar and nice separation between tables during this Covid period. Same chefs as Paul’s on Robinhood Rd which has to close. Same great hostess, Lisa. Some of same wait staff. Great move because previously Paul’s was by far the best authentic Italian in the entire Triad. Now it’s Cibo’s! Lobster ravioli was phenomenal. Strawberry rum cake was fantastic for dessert. Cocktails were exceptional. Sangria was wonderful I was told. Food is amazing and staff is nice and extremely attentive. You have to try Cibo’s!

Wonderful Italian food! Very similar to the quality of food I experienced in Italy last year. Excellent service as well.

Hardly a complaint but we were seated on the sidewalk along Trade Street and would have preferred being in the other outside area along the side of the building. There was outdoor propane heating which we appreciated very much as the temperature dipped into the mid 50s.

We will be back soon!

Loved our evening at CiBo. A breath of fresh air amidst the sad environment of a desolate state government induced shutdown of downtown Winston-Salem. Great experience from the start (valet parking in pouring rain), wait service/host/hostess friendly and informative, delicious food. Overall fabulous evening. Will definitely return on our next visit!

Service was good. Food ok. Feeling COVID safe, poor. Dining out during this pandemic I try to be mindful that restaurants are looking to maximize each meal service while helping customers to feel safe during their dining experience. This restaurant filled every table in the restaurant with little space between tables. We did not feel safe in the way this restaurant looked to balance customer safety with maximizing their tables.
