Cibo is a lovely, contemporary Italian restaurant in the heart of Regent Square. It also happens to be a 5 minute drive from our house…score. I think everyone should have an awesome Italian restaurant within a few miles of their house, it’s just practical.
Well, even if Cibo wasn’t 5 minutes from our house, we’d still go. It’s good. Fantastic actually. Chef Eric Schwarzmeier puts together an ever-changing menu that offers a great selection: several appetizers, pastas and salads, a large selection of seafood entrees and options for the carnivore.
We enjoyed the baked pear and grilled caesar salads
dates stuffed with lamb, fontina cheese and wrapped in bacon
and seafood rigatoni
Pasta portions are quite large, surely enough to share. I recommend ordering an appetizer, salads and then splitting one of the seafood pastas. Chef really knows how to cook seafood.
It’s BYOB, so come stocked with good wine to enjoy with your dinner. Open Monday through Saturday 5pm to 10pm. Reservations are probably a good idea for weekend evenings and for larger groups, though we’ve had luck with walking and and getting seated pretty quickly.
Maybe you should go this weekend!
