Cibo Ristorante Italiano

Experience the excellence!

Cibo (pronounced chee-bo) means food in Italian, but it’s more of a feast for the senses. An intimate yet vibrant atmosphere is accentuated with expressive art in the form of photography, paintings, sculpture, hand-blown glass and live jazz. Fusing the best of old and new world Italian cuisine, Cibo offers an eclectic menu from gourmet pizzas to multi-course dinners.
