Went for dinner with my husband. Service was not all that great, took 20 minutes to get our drinks alone but WOW! First, the bread and dipping sauce! FANTASTIC! I have no idea what it was, but oh my, it was so good!! Next up was salads, and I was impressed with the size and their house vinegarette was quite... More

While the food was good it didn't live up to the hype that it was given when recommended. The place is small and allows for you to have conversation with your party. It has wonderful wait staff who are both knowledgeable and pleasant. The meals were enjoyable, I had the Sea Bass which was good.

The food was good but I ordered lunch, at lunch, off of their lunch menu online for pick up. They charged me the dinner price and said it was because "I didn't specify that I wanted the lunch portion". What a ripoff way to raise their profits. I may like the food but I will never give them my business... More

I have been waiting to go here for a long time and finally made it. While the back entrance and storage boxes under the front of the bar didn't give me 'warm fuzzies' regarding the initial appeal, the food more than made up for it. The lady at the bar was a bit annoyed and voiced it when people started... More

We stumbled upon this little gem when seeing their banner that said "fresh pasta". Homemade fresh pasta is the name of this place. Try it out. We get used to eating commercial pasta, but when you get to taste homemade you have a chew and flavor that is just so amazingly different. Husband tried the chicken parmesan and homemade angel...

They have the BEST dipping sauce for the bread and a great selection of offerings on a large menu, both pastas and pizzas, and salads. Though I think of it as more of a good date spot, it still makes for a nice family dinner place. This is my favorite Italian place in Tampa bay.

This is a terrific little italian restaurant. First of all, we had calamari as an appetizer and we try this dish everywhere we go, theirs was the best we have ever experienced. When that dish came out cooked perfectly I felt very hopeful about the fresh made pasta Carbonara I had ordered. I wasn't disappointed, it was excellent. Service was... More

Having lived in St Petersburg since the 1980's we remember when Cafe Cibo opened over 20 years ago. It has consistently been one of the best Italian restaurants in town. You will find many locals frequenting the restaurant regularly. It is a great find when you are looking for an above-average meal but don't want a study atmosphere or to... More

Small neighborhood place with traditional italian, pizza, parmesians, spaghetti et al. Food very good ! Service fast efficient and friendly. To-go boxes can be expected.
