What We Tried
At our media tasting, we tried various antipasti, pastas, entrees and desserts.
Prosciutto e melone
To start, we enjoyed the delicate, deeply savory and thinly sliced prosciutto paired with spice-cured melon ($15). A gluten-free option.
The burrata ($17) was wonderfully fresh, creamy and smooth. It was accompanied by grilled sourdough, salad, winter squash
Spaghetti alle vongole
The soft, pillowy gnocchi ($18) in tomato sauce, Calabrian chili, and topped with ricotta was a favorite among attendees. A vegetarian option.
The tagliatelle ($21) was my favourite pasta option with perfectly al dente pasta in a hearty spiced duck ragu.
If you love a good panini, cibo has some grilled-to-perfection sandwich choices: the capocollo & pesto panino ($16) (capocollo, provolone, pear, almond pesto, seasonal salad) and vegetarian sicilian eggplant and pecorino panino ($15) (caponata, sheep’s cheese, seasonal salad).
To finish off a fantastic meal, there was the silky smooth and gently wobbly
Cibo also presented a deconstructed tiramisu dessert ($10) with tiramisu 10 mascarpone cream, chocolate croccante lady finger and espresso sauce.
My top choices for each course would be the prosciutto e melone, tagliatelle, insalata ligure, and tiramisu.
Cibo serves breakfast Monday to Friday 7 am – 11 am, lunch from 11 am to 2 pm. Weekend brunch
