Here's what Cibi is all about.....
Great people enjoying truly unique culinary experiences together
Cibi deliziosi, in Italian, means “delightful food.” A 20 year dream of Rosita Caridi-Miller, Cibi’s Chef/Owner, became reality in the fall of 2005. Given a growing market for the flavorful, nutrient rich Mediterranean diet, “food as entertainment,” and for fine products at affordable prices, the time was right for opening Cibi. Chef Rosita's vision included a place where guests can enjoy wholesome “out-of-the-ordinary” foods in their own home or in the casual elegance of Cibi’s café or banquet room. The original concept of a gourmet deli quickly evolved into a catering business as well as an entertainment, meeting and culinary center.
We started with a one-of-a-kind deli menu, featuring popular items from our now “Catering To-Go” menu. Our guests often ask for customized menus, which we happily design especially for their occasion. Cibi's house specialties include Italian inspired gourmet specialties like homemade pasta, ravioli and sauces made fresh, all made on the premises. We make our pasta and sauces in small batches with the finest ingredients available and using trusted family recipes and techniques that preserve their richness and taste.
A Charming Facility - casual, yet elegant
For cooking classes, cooking parties, meetings and special events
Rosita coupled the concept with a treasure of a building at 3894 Rush Mendon Road. The front of the building, built in 1823, is the second oldest in the Hamlet of Mendon, NY. A stage area was added later and finally the back room, which is now Cibi's kitchen and cafe, was added in the 1930's.
The Cibi contemporary Italian café area, sports an open kitchen, ideal for cooking classes and casual parties.
La Piazza, in the front of the building, resembles a charming Italian town. With its stage area, it becomes an entertainment and meeting center where guests celebrate special occasions or hold business meetings. We configure the room to handle formal or informal gatherings for any special occasion - birthday and anniversary parties, baby & bridal showers, christenings, showers, rehersal dinners, post wedding brunches.
La Piazza even becomes a Holiday Gourmet Marketplace and Farmers Market. Our customers can pick up locally grown and produced gourmet items for themselves or for special gifts.
