THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cibugnu Restaurant Review

: Billed as "fresh Italian," Cibugnù lives up to the hype, even if you may not be instantly able to pronounce the names of some of the dishes, such as spaccatelle, which is topped with a pork ragù. Italian specialties comprise the menu: pastas (try the house-made ravioli with corn and blueberries if available), salumi and wood-fired pizzas, among others. The setup allows you to see the action in the kitchen, but the flat-screens showing scenes of plates in preparation may be a bit distracting. The well-thought-out wine list is more extensive than one might expect given the size of the place. If there is one "can't miss" item it’s the chocolate calzone for dessert, but we also suggest the watermelon granita. On mild weather days or evenings, ask for a table on the private patio.
