Nicola’s Italian Restaurant will open within the next week or so in the former CIBO space at Reed/Henderson Roads. Nick will be the owner/chef. He was chef at Da Vinci that was at the same intersection until 2006, then Vittoria on Sawmill Parkway.October 15, 2011 1:14 pm at 1:14 pm #465692
What happened to Cibo? Is Vittoria closed?

Vittoria is open.
I am sorry that I missed my opportunity to try Cibo.October 15, 2011 1:55 pm at 1:55 pm #465694
Carla and Tommy Piolata the owners of CIBO and part of the family that own the center sold the business to Chef Nick. (I do not know his last name). He I assume wanted his own place. Vittoria is still open. If you never made it to CIBO, almost be glad, I was a regular and damn I will miss it!October 15, 2011 3:52 pm at 3:52 pm #465695

Restaurant review: Nicola Restaurant & Bar

Put simply, Bedalli presents his culinary vision on one of the most inviting Italian menus in town, one starring a wealth of lovely handmade pastas. While Bedalli’s roots are proudly European, his time in the U.S. (he arrived here in 2000) has taught him how to please Americans, too (Bedalli was formerly chef at Vittoria’s in Powell). In other words, at Nicola, expect huge portions of authentically flavored saucy delights that rarely err on the sides of subtle or understated. And expect a lot of earthy and rich entrees often accommodatingly priced in the mid-teens.
