The employees are pretty bad, service can be a little slow. Also, a lot of "behind the scene" actvity going on where customers can see. Also, did not appreciate that the girl taking our order was chewing gum, completely unporfessional.

Love this place - the beet and goat cheese salad it to die for and at the prices you can't beat! my kids love the pasta - the pizza is good, the sandwhiches are great and the staff is wonderful! We have catered with them as well and had the same wonderful food at reasonable prices.

I have never had a bad thing on their menu. Everything from the pasta to pizza to salads are incredible! And make sure to leave room for dessert! Their baked goods are all homemade and who can resist gelato?!

Ah. This might be the perfect place for others, but not so much for me. I go there because some co-workers like it. When I bought the groupon, I really didn't notice that it was for evening only--or I wouldn't have bothered. It is out of the way for me, and I have quite a few really good italian restaurants that are more convenient. (I know that is not a PROBLEM--just a comment about why this wouldn't become a regular evening/dinner place for me.)

Would request much less oil with my Rigatoni & pancetta dish next time, as the pasta was drowning in oil bottom of plate, had to use napkins to remove. That will never be appealing to diners - that much oil.

Food was just ok. It was only lukewarm. Definitely not worth the money I paid especially since we could have had the Mon special at the same price! Best part was the gelato. We would go back for that. It was delicious!

Every sauce tastes the same. Mine was floating in oil last night. While the prices are reasonable I just don't think it's worth it.

From Our Editors

When asked to name a favorite sandwich, Cibo Racconto's managing partner, Mike Sheahan, immediately thinks of the porchetta—a ciabatta roll containing thin slices of pork tenderloin slow roasted in a garlic-white-wine sauce. Perhaps it’s the oven-roasted tomatoes or the provolone cheese, which are both imported from Naples, Italy, like most of the ingredients that make up Cibo Racconto’s menu. Pasta dishes teem with fresh noodles and san marzano tomatoes, including the lumache arrosto, in which a tomato cream sauce douses sliced sausage and roasted peppers.

Two of the restaurant’s partners crafted the panizza themselves while brainstorming new ways to use their existing ingredients. They hand-stretched pizza dough, lining it with imported ricotta before rolling the sides over and baking it to a crisp golden brown. Panizzas and pastas alike are served on granite-topped tables surrounded by sand-colored walls under a gilded tin ceiling, which often leans down to steal bites of unattended paninis.
