This is a good date place..on the pricey side though with entrees 25+. service was great and courteous as well as the locaetion and atmosphere.. They should improve on the food (a lot) / table presentation. Over all a fine place..if you order the right things!!!

I came to this restaurant once before in 2006. I really enjoyed my meal. Not this time around. Dirty plate, warm draft beer, uncooked pasta, pasta sauce was more like a broth...not the best meal and atmosphere. After pointing these out to the staff they were courteous enough to make our meal better by offering dessert on the house. And i will say this, very nice waiter and he made a delicious cappucino. So, service was up to par but not so much the food and especially at the price you have to pay.

We (husband and I) booked to go on a Monday evening, we needn't have since the place was practically empty. We were going for the price fix menu to save a few $ and weren't disappointed. An excellent choice for only $30 and all of the food was spot on. Service was very friendly and attentive, as someone previously mentioned you will meet a lot of staff as there seems to be one person for each little job! Even the guy that swept the crumbs off our table was new to us! Speaking of crumbs, the bread basket was excellent. A nice choice. The portions seemed to be huge and I couldn't finish my main course although this meant I got to leave with the cutest of doggy bags. It's refreshing to be asked by the waiter if everything was ok when he saw how much I left and also offering a doggy bag. Also the fact that when we ordered a dessert to share, he went to great lengths to point out that as we were eating from the price fix menu we could have one each.

Best word to describe Cibo is solid - not trendy, fancy, hot today and cold tomorrow. Ambiance is comfortable, unpretentious and pleasant. Staff are friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Food is very well done, and consistently so in my experience. Nice wine list with several price points from basic to splurge. The prix fixe has got to be one of the best deal in Manhattan.

These are probably just personal nit pick things but for the sake of those of you who would like to consider... here goes. Looks very nice and cozy from the outside, but when we walked in we were slightly dissapointed. First being "carpet" ick, I just cant stand it, especially in restaurants.. Also their chairs! looked like my grannies. Then although the table settings are pretty, there is just too much stuff on them, lamps, flowers, huge plates, with huge napkins in huge napkin rings, just not my scene, imo they could lose the large flower displays, ir at least something a bit more simple. Service: I am not joking, besides our waiter, we were visited by 6 different people, and eventually started asking "where did he come from?" Food: $29 prix is excellent value and my husband's meal was outstanding, however, I made the wrong choices, I chose a squash soup with pear (dont know why, I never choose soup) I chose the scallops for main, there were four of them, and way WAY overdone, but they did come over a delicious parsnip puree. My husband had a nice salad with little bits of good cheese and delicious balsamic tomatoes, and an amazing and large portioned pork chop perfectly carmelized. Dessert: My husband had a lovely apple/? cobbler with ice cream and I had an almost, almost perfect Almond Creme Brulee, but almost is not good enough for a creme brulee, it was just a whisper eggy tasting. I would think it is a nice place for lunch, but for a nice dinner out with a special person, hmmmmm, not for me again.

We were 3 couples for an early Saturday evening dinner and found the food very good and service attentive. The restaurant was pretty and the staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. They set up our table in a little nook of the restaurant which afforded plenty of privacy and let us linger without rushing our courses. Their dinner special at $29.99 for 3 courses a good buy. They add 20% gratuity to bill for more than 5 people but service warranted the fee.

I love going to Cibo for Brunch. The prix fixe is a great value. The restaurant is spacious and comfortable. Servers are attentive but not overbearing. From the mini muffins and banana bread to the entrees, the food is quite good. I can't recommend this restaurant more highly for brunch.
