It’s taken me way too long to write about one of my all-time favorite restaurants in the Valley, Cibo. I love everything about it: the phenomenal pizza, the beautiful decor, the on-top-of-things servers and the charming neighborhood location — it’s a must-try, for sure!
Cibo is in a historic home-turned-restaurant, with the most gorgeous twinkly light-lit patio (there are misters, so you can even sit here during the summer.) The interior is just as cute, with a small bar overlooking the open kitchen churning out perfect wood-fired pizzas. There’s also an area that overlooks the backyard garden, and the rest of the inside seating is quaint and cozy — you’ll most likely be sat close to another table, so prepare to get intimate.
The obvious menu draw here is the pizza, and they’re pretty close to perfect.
You can get pizzas for dinner (their lunch menu consists mostly of sandwiches and salads.) A single pizza alone is a huge meal for one (though I can happily finish one myself and still manage to gobble up some dessert), so consider splitting an appetizer and sharing a pie. My favorite kind to get is a simple margherita pizza with olives added ($12.50). The dough is always my favorite consistency — thin and soft and with crispy edges. The fresh basil is amazing — I love it!
Plan on having a crepe — they’re definitely a must-have if you go to Cibo. I love getting the Nutella and banana one and adding mascarpone and whipped cream to it, too ($10.50). Every bite is incredible, and it will have you coming back for more.
The atmosphere combined with the mouthwatering food solidifies Cibo as one of my go-to restaurants. It’s truly a Valley gem, and I hope it stays open forever!
