REVIEW: Cibo e Beve, Sandy Springs, North Fulton
I had an errand to run during lunch, so Angel and I ended up near Sandy Springs. We decided to pop into Cibo e Beve for lunch. Chef Linda Harrell is the Executive Chef for Cibo e Beve and she’s got an impressive back story. She received her culinary training working under the esteemed Chef Daniel Yves Abid, who has established a reputation for not just fine European cuisine, but also turning out some of the most amazing chefs in America.

We got started with the Fried Calamari appetizer and it was absolutely delicious. Its easy to overcook calamari and it becomes really rubbery. Calamari is already known for its being very chewy, no need to go there, right? Well, this calamari was excellent and the combination of the peppers and the marinara sauce made for a splendid beginning to this meal.
Angel chose the Pici al Bolognese which is a Tuscan pasta and a meat ragu. He thought it was excellent and couldn’t finish his meal. I ordered the Casarecce alla Vodka, that’s got a spicy tomato cream sauce and comes with sausage. The flavors in this dish were fantastic and this was super tasty. Although it was billed as “spicy”, I thought it was mild enough to be enjoyed by almost everyone.
We found Cibo e Beve to be comfortable, welcoming, and delicious. Our server was excellent throughout the meal and helped make our lunch wonderful. We had a great time and think you will too! Guten appetit!
