Italian
We are a husband and wife who opened a small Italian restaurant in Oliver Village 9 years ago. Cibo means food in Italian and that has always been our focus along with friendly, knowledgeable, attentive service. We want you to feel at home while you eat delicious regional style cuisine influenced by Chef Rosario Caputo's grandmother and the couples various trips to Italy over the past 10 years. We are opening our doors to the general public after a 4 month hiatus due to COVID-19. For those of you just dining with us welcome, to our return guests and regular customers thank you for the love and support over the past 4 months. Expect a few changes as we navigate our new "normal" but we can promise our same quality ingredients, tasty hand made pastas, and friendly attentive service.

When we first arrived we only waited a short time for them to seat us at our reservation due too the cleaning requirements. The service was excellent and the alcohol selection was perfect by the server. He knew his liquor. The steak tar tar was alright. And the cheese with bread was really good. The lamb is amazing, perfectly cooked, and everything with the lamb was perfect. The rabbit was dry and didn't really taste all that good, the carrots were alittle burnt. The price was decent for what we got.

Poor management of our expectations, Kitchen was out of the dishes that were recommended to us. Seating is very hit or miss, stared at the bathrooms the whole time, seating should be reconfigured. Excellent food.

We ordered something from each course-meun. We had a cheese dish appetizer which was not very balanced (sweet vs savoury). The first course pasta dish and the second course lamb were both very salty unfortunately and ruined the overall taste of the dishes. And it took almost an hour for the first of our food to arrive. Overall we were disappointed.

We came with our 4 year old and 2 year old to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
Jordan was a great server and was very attentive. The food was fantastic and the kids were able to enjoy themselves.
We've been here many times and will continue to come to Cibo for great food and welcoming atmosphere.

This is only my second time eating there, but it may be my new favorite restaurant. It is definitely not cheap (expect to pay $30-$40 for a pasta dish), but it is worth every penny!! The Zucchini Blossom appetizer may be the best food I have ever eaten! I will definitely be going back.

This is truly one of the best restaurants around. They have gone out of their way to make us feel comfortable and safe in this Covid era.
The food is always incredibly good. The taste reminds me of my Nonna cooking, but with a creative modern flair. We have never been disappointed here.
Chef Rosario is very talented, and has hired great people. It was a great place to go for our anniversary.
I always recommend this restaurant to others and we will definitely keep going there.

Our COVID experience was phenomenal. Hand sanitizer was available upon entry, every staff member was wearing a mask, we witnessed a thorough sanitation between each customer, and we were able to choose between a recyclable one-use paper menu or using our phones for their online menu (same as the paper one). All of that aside, the food was unbelievable and the service and friendless of the staff made our first experience eating out in nearly four months a fantastic one. Jose welcomed us, took us to our seat, and was our server throughout our meal - he made us feel at home and taken care of. Everything from the freshly baked focaccia bread to the Venetian-style duck Ragu to the panna cotta was worth coming back for. You won’t be disappointed with a visit to Cibo (chee-bo). We plan on going back soon and we hope you get to enjoy a meal there in the very near future.

The food was okay, but the price we paid for everything was way overpriced. The portions were small and there was not much flavor in the dishes that were ordered. There was 8 of us that ordered 8 different things, and over all, we rated the food a 6 out of 10.

Birthday dinner for three. Everyone had the tasting menu.
1. Spuntini
Really nice little bites. Arancini was perfectly cooked. Fried polenta had a great texture and the home cured calabrese salami added heat and lactic sourness. Ricotta cake was delicious.
2. Crostini with ricotta, pistachio, balsamic, and house made mortadella. Excellent flavor, bread maybe just a touch thick.
3. Agnolotti w/ truffle ricotta. Delicious. Great texture, seasoned perfectly.
4. Boar ragu with tagliatelle. Nice rich ragu, boar has a great tooth to it. Pasta is excellent.
(Palate cleanser: blood orange sorbetto) tasty but maybe a little too large, and definitely a touch sweet.
5. Pork cheeks with parsnip puree and carrot/parsley 'gremolata'. Mega tender, delicious sauce. Gremolata very pretty and added some much needed acidity and vegetal character as well as crunch. I'm nitpicking here but maybe a finer chop on the carrot/parsley so it doesn't defiantly flop off the fork.
6. Cannolo and pistachio gelato. Really nice ending. Nothing was overly sweet and the cannolo had a nice light texture as did the filling.

The kitchen is bang on with seasonings. This is something that is fundamental, and they did perfectly.

Server was on their game but was a little shaky on the wine pairings. Otherwise a great job.

Cocktails were very good. Nice riffs on classics!


Very happy with the meal. We would absolutely recommend!

It got pretty noisy as the night progressed. Food was good but pricey. My ravioli dish

was delicious, nicely presented & twice too much. We'd rather have smaller portions
and it be less pricey!

Thank you.

I was very disappointed that 15 minutes before the reservation we were advised it was a tasting menu because I had specifically chosen the restaurant because there were multiple vegetarian options and the tasting menu forced us to have no choices and to get the tasting menu that we didn’t want but at 15minuted before it was far too late to change our reservation or make another. I was disappointed that we had to pay for the tasting menu when we were told in advance.

We’ve eaten here several times and this is our first bad experience. Our waiter brought us the carbonara instead of the carpaccio. I told him it was fine and he asked if we still wanted the carpaccio. I said sure. It took too long to come. We had to ask for the bill before it arrived. The carpaccio came and we had to ask for it just to be boxed up. We had to ask for the bill a second time. Our waiter wasn’t around a lot. We were disappointed to see that we were charged for both the carbonara and the carpaccio after the difficulties of getting served. This wasn’t our error. It was your waiters and should have been treated as such.

I was extremely disappointed in a pasta dish--rigatoni with beef short ribs, toasted hazelnuts, some greens (not sure, tasted like rapini although said braised radicchio ?). I'm sorry I didn't send it back but just left it half eaten. I did explain to the waitress what I thought was wrong with the dish. There was a heavy taste of vinegar which overpowered the dish. The beef ribs were stringy and the rigatoni were bare, with no sauce and so tasted bland and heavy. It was disappointing as it was a special evening, treating my daughter for dinner and theatre. I thought the server might offer a dessert in compensation, however, I didn't ask and so perhaps it wasn't common to do this. The pasta dish was $30.

Our first impressions were good. After1.5 hours of waiting for our food the waitress offered us a loaf of burnt bread that was frozen inside. Several other guests were seated, had their meal and left while we waited. I asked to see the manager. He came charging out. No apology. No explanation. Most bizarre experience. I am sure the waitress forgot to put in our order in. A simple truthful explanation would have resolved the fiasco. A serious disappointment
