Dining at Cibo for winterlicious was delightful. The decor was charming and elegant blending a warm rustic feeling with a modern industrial presence. We started off the evening with some warm homemade foccaica bread served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, while we waited for our appetizers. I thought the kitchen service was a little slow in between courses, which made us even hungrier throughout the night. I had ordered the black tiger shrimp to start. The sauce was sharp and had enough kick to make the appetizer interesting. Lobster ravioli was to follow and it was worth the wait. It was filled with guilty, creamy, lobster goodness. The luxurious sauce coated my tongue with each bite. My only critique was there was not enough ravioli. Finishing the meal, I ended with milk chocolate risotto. I was expecting it to be more of a rice pudding in texture, but it was much thicker. It was not too sweet which was a pleasant surprise. I think this dessert would've been better if it was served in a warm chocolate sauce. Overall, it was a delicious tasting menu.
