Meet the Owners
Owners Matteo Clivati and Fausto Belloli are both from Milan, Italy (and have the accents to prove it!), but didn’t meet until they worked together in Fort Worth. Even the restaurant’s name is authentic: cibi means food in Italian. CiBi has the kind of welcoming, neighborhood feel that makes you want to sit around the table sipping wine with friends and family for hours — just like real Italians do.
Chef Matteo Clivati was born and raised in Milan, Italy. His passion for food began at a very young age while working in his family’s pastry shop, Pasticceria Clivati. Before moving to San Francisco and then Fort Worth, Chef Clivati worked in notable restaurants such as Nobu and Sadler Ristorante. In Fort Worth, he has worked at Taverna, Piattello, and Wicked Butcher, as well as for Tim Love.
Fausto Belloli is a friendly, professional Restaurant Manager with 10 years of experience delighting guests with excellent food and wine recommendations, elegant atmosphere, and impeccable service in fine-dining restaurants. Fausto has worked in notable Fort Worth restaurants such as La Piazza, Taverna, and Wicked Butcher.
