We celebrated Da's birthday at Cibo in Trinoma last April. I know, I know... I should have blogged this a long time ago... now I couldn't quite remember the names of the great dishes we had.
After about 11 years of serving real modern Italian cuisine, we tried it, finally. The branch at Trinoma was a bit small and cramped, but the interior was modern and fancy. Nice.
Let me try to check out at Munchpunch if I could find the names of the different dishes we had....
For starters, we had the salad... I think this was the Insalata di Mare (shrimp, squid, crab, greens, basil pesto, lemon vinaigrette)
.... Linguine Alla Siciliana (gamberetti, garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, anchovy, capers)
.... their Italian bread, Ciabatta.... my and Reina's favorite ... soft but with just the right amount of delicate crunch on each bite, light and tasty!
The pizza was good... and loooong..... thin and crispy... topped with authentic Italian ingredients... I love the shape.
The bestseller of the night... Manzo Tagliata (?) (ciabatta, beef tenderloin, gorgonzola, grilled onions)... I wished the serving was a bit bigger though...
Gone without a trace...
Cibo is, no doubt, here to stay. It may not be the best Italian restau in the Metro but you get your money's worth with every visit. Definitely.
