Cibo is a contemporary Italian restaurant in Pittsburgh’s Regent Square neighborhood. My friend Danielle had a $10-off entrée coupon, so we decided to give it a go!
So, I did not experience a “food-gasm,” but that does not mean the experience was all that bad. The staff was welcoming and the ambiance was quaint and clean. I cannot figure out why the word “contemporary” is an adjective used to describe their cuisine. I had Eggplant Parmesean, which was definitely fresh (not frozen), plentiful and comforting for dinner on a cold February night in Pittsburgh. However, my ceasar salad that preceded the main entrée was presented as large hearts of romaine that might have made their way to the grill. I don’t like salad or any parts of it warm. That was different and possibly a “contemporary” take on Italian food. In the end, Danielle and I enjoyed ourselves, laughing from great seats overlooking the bustling Braddock Avenue. I would most likely not go back, as the menu was a bit over-priced. With everything priced a la carte and also a BYOB ($5 corkage fee), I feel Cibo’s marketing theme is confusing. That’s all for now. I didn’t detest the experience, nor did I LOVE it.
