CiboDivino expands to downtown Dallas
Sylvan Thirty’s Italian darling, CiboDivino, will expand to downtown Dallas later this summer with a new store and restaurant.
Owners Daniele and Christina Puleo say the new CiboDivino, located in Bryan Tower, will duplicate the original’s marketplace of wines, staples and prepared foods to-go and serve breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Friday.
The new Cibo will serve house-made breads, pastries, scratch-made and customizable salads, paninis, pastas and Roman-style pizzas al taglio priced by the ounce and cut with scissors, like they do in Rome (but not quite as authentic as the wood-fired Roman pizzas served at one of our favorite Italian spots, Ferrari’s Side Car Tavern in Grapevine).
The new Cibo will also sport a full-service café and coffee bar featuring Lavazza coffees. and unique, true Italian coffee drinks; grab and go snacks ready to eat; corporate catering; an outdoor patio and green space for al fresco dining; and a private event space. Centro will also be home to the only Roman-style pizza in Dallas, serving scissor-cut slices.
“Centro is an exciting, new version of the CiboDivino brand,” Daniele Puleo said in a release announcing the space. “I wanted to be in the center of the action—the trains, the trolley, the buzz of people weaving through the buildings downtown. Italians start their day with coffee, break for a healthy lunch and end with an aperitivo with friends. I hope a bit of my culture will become part of the local routine.”
