CIBVS Description

The team behind Il Nascondiglio – Shanghai's only Italian private dinner concept, where just one table is served a set five-course menu per day – expanded to meet demand this past March, with an open-to-the-public contemporary Italian restaurant on Yuyao Lu. 

It’s called CIBVS, meaning 'food' in Latin. But, as the story goes for all spring 2022 Shanghai new openings, things got a bit rocky. Luckily, CIBVS weathered the storm and is fully back in action.

The small Northeastern Italian menu, headed by Chef Andrea (Andy) Canciani, will change quarterly, and focus on quality of ingredients, seasonality and modernity rather than the classics. Don't expect to find pizza, Bolognese or eggplant parmesan; instead expect a menu chalk-full of inventive raviolo, homemade pasta topped with large scampi and other dishes hailing from Trieste, Chef Andy's hometown that borders Slovenia. 

Trieste sits by the sea, used to fall under the Austrian-Hungarian empire and is heavily influenced in both dialect and cuisine by Venice. This all culminates in a melting pot of people and cuisine that Chef Andy showcases to diners, pulling from home recipes that he grew up with in his mother’s neighborhood Osteria.
