Osteria Cibo Rustico Brings Italian Fare to Toco Hills
Cancel reservations at your usual dining spot for this weekend, and head to Toco Hills for new Italian fare. Osteria Cibo Rustico offers a variety of traditional dishes for those looking for a warm and inviting atmosphere with hearty meals that will have you mistaken the North Druid Hills restaurant for a quaint Italian eatery in the heart of Rome. Dip into antipasti ($4.95-$10.95) of warm polenta fritta (Parmesan-crusted polenta fingers), polpettine (house-made meatballs) in tomato-basil sauce or share an antipasto plate with friends. Order any of the four insalate ($6.95-$8.95) topped with blue cheese, grilled chicken, shrimp or salmon for an additional $1-$4. Of course, don't forget about the pasta plates ($8.95-$14.95) with gigli primavera with grilled asparagus, onions, mushrooms and scallions, hearty rigatoni alla Bolognese or fusilli with fennel sausage and pistachios. Truly something delicious for every person on the menu, the extensive list of wine, beer, coffee, tea, soft drinks and bottled water pair perfectly with every meal. Lunch is served daily from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. starting November 18. In the meantime, try Cibo for dinner Sunday- Thursday from 5:30- 10:30 p.m. and Friday- Saturday from 5:30- 11 p.m.
