Lackluster at best. The ambiance was noisy and chaotic. Had more than enough staff to cover but the service was terrible. Took forever before someone came to the table. Screwed up the timing of the order so no one had he food at the same time. Every request we made for drinks or sides was totally forgotten. Asked for my leftovers to be packaged but they threw them out. When we commented to the waitress she complained that the customers were asking too many questions and takin g to much tome for proper service. The whole experience seems like the first time they ever ran a restaurant. I won’t be going back. Way better choices before you need to go here. NOT recommended.

I had the risotto and my husband a pizza. Risotto was cooked to perfection and pizza dough was very good. What was lacking in Bibo is the service. The noise level is pretty high but the server was talking pretty low and I had to ask him to repeat many times or try to guess his words.
We were given a plate of bread when we arrived, which is nice, but the medium plate came with 4 tiny slices of bread which looked a bit stingy. I would suggest serving the bread in smaller container so it doesn't look lost. I would also suggest to serve pizza dough as bread instead as it is delicious.

Portions each time get smaller. Price and portion should be correlated and they are not. Taste is good, but not satisfied. I've been going to bibo since 3 years ago and I was very dissapointed this time. Felt like an insult for the amount of money I was paying, I just expected the portions as they have always been.

They've changed their Eggplant parmigiana. It looks more of a Caprese but with thinly sliced eggplant. So disappointing.

Serving sizes were way too small for the price. The service was horrible. We cycled between 2-3 waiters, no consistency. We weren't offered to taste the wine before it was poured. Had to ask for pepper and the waiter just left the grinder on the table, didn't offer to grind it for us. We asked for the bill 2x before it came. The first time we asked, we had to wait 15 mins before we asked again. Just get it together. Next time Trattoria seems like the way to go.

We ordered 2 appetisers, 2 pizzas and 1 entree. The food was tasty, but not as memorable as other Italian restaurants I have visited in Vancouver. The appetisers and mains were slightly overpriced for the portion size and taste. The staff were friendly and attentive. I would likely not choose to return, not because I had a bad experience, but just because I have found the food tastier elsewhere.

We arrived a little early for our reservation, we were seated right away. The menus on the tables had food all them, took our server more than 15 mins to come take our drink order. When the server arrived all he said was “are you ready to order food” we asked to start with a drink, I had questions about some of the wines, the server had NO wine knowledge. We asked about the bruschetta and if it came with olives, the server assured us it did not. Once the food arrived we noticed 2 of the 8 peices had olive tapade. The server never came back to check on the food so there was no chance to let him know our disappointment. I had high hopes for this place as it came highly recommend by one of the chefs I work with.

We have been frequenting The Bibo several times over the past five years or more. What a great find and asset to Vancouver. The food is always of high quality, and the staff are generally friendly, and on this occasion we had a friendly and smart server. The restaurant is run by an Italian family who take great care to ensure their menu and ingredients reflect the true Italian quality, taste and freshness. At the same time the atmosphere is casual, tasteful and friendly.

I wish I lived in the neighborhood so I could have great pizzas every day. Thats how I like this place so much. Best Italian pizza ever. 2nd time here and never let me down. The dough here is the best. So smooth, not too fluffy, not too chewy, just perfect! Also, cant beat the parma prosciutto here (Crudo is my fav). Service was quick and friendly too. Our server taught us some Italian words ;) Ambience is something that can be improved. I loved the wall arts and bnw movies playing on TV, but the music is a little bit too loud. We had to talk kind of loudly to each other. But, overall very good experience. Keep it up!

We were seated promptly & then we were left sitting for 30 minutes. I tried numerous times to make eye contact with the server but we were completely ignored. My husband finally got up & found someone to serve us. From there on the service was quick.
The food was average at best. Will not be returning.

I'm not sure I would go back. Although nice ambiance and convenient to home, the pizza was overpriced and nothing special. I had the Crudo at $23 and to be honest I thought it was okay but nothing to write home about.. crust was dry and yes, the toppings were fresh but other than that, just bland. my friend had the Boscaiola at $22, slightly tastier than mine but still overpriced. I might go back just to see if the pasta is any good, but overall I was quite disappointed and I expected more from all the hype about this place.

Bibo has the most authentic pizza in Vancouver. They use two type of flour which makes the pizza crust incredible and just like at home their pizze are as good as the ones in Italy.

Their wine list is also great, with all the typical Italian wine such as Nebbiolo, Barbera, Chianti and Nero d'Avola, which cover different regions of Italy for a great variety of choices.

Their Tiramisu is also really good, and the portion was quite generous.

The restaurant was extremely noisy which made it very difficult to hear any of our table conversation. Pizza was really good, however the pastas didn't really have any flavor. We had only been here once before and it was much better overall. One redeeming point was the quality of the service. Exceptional!

We were seated then waited for 10 minutes before being served. We watched as people who arrived after were waited on.
Once we did get served everything was rushed. We were still working on our appetizer when our main courses came out.
Our server seemed very distracted.
Food was great! Service sucked!

Like every time I go, this place delivers with some of the best and most authentic pizza you can find in Vancouver. Definitely my favourite! Even if you find something to complain about (I am speaking with you picky customers) you forget about it as soon as you bite into the first slice.
As a first generation italian I am very happy to be able to eat in such an authentic place, even though I live on the other side of the planet. I do absolutely recommend this place!
Cheers
