Terrific food experience! The Spaghetti meal special on a Wednesday night was a hit! The red wine for $4 was awesome too. Such awesome value. Table and seats are pretty simple style in the front area of the restaurant. TVs are small.

Came for dinner and was disappointed. Food was not what we expected. We indicated to our waitress that we don’t want bacon bits on our salad and when it came out, another waitress delivered it and said it wasn’t bacon it was actually lamb bits!!!?! It turned out to be capers! The pizza we ordered was soggy and not appetizing at all.

White truffle fries & lamb osso buco are excellent.

Ravioli dough is way too thick.

Waited very long for the lamb is so buco though.

We celebrated our son's birthday here. The menu is well set up for sharing multiple dishes so everyone gets lots to eat and lots of variety. Excellent pizza and pasta. Try to limit yourself to 1 order if the Parmesan fries!

Went here for a birthday get together with family including young school aged children. Food was fresh and delicious, the pizzas were the best I've had. All the appetizers were great as well.
Would highly recommend and plan to revisit in the near future.

We came in during Happy Hour today (around 4), expecting that pizza was $5 and appetizers/wine were $4 as indicated in the menu. No further details were given that the servings (toppings, cheese and all) during happy hour were different! Server also didn't point to clarify the lack of information or "misinformation" on the menu. It was a great time until we realized that we were paying more than 2xs the price for food that apparently wasn't in the happy hour special.

Please make sure to communicate the specials more! If the servers won't mention it, please indicate at the menu. It's hard to want to go back after that. Hope that won't be the experience for other customers.

We went for a bday dinner and after ordering our food took about an hour to come out. And not only that when the food came out it there were three ppl at the table who had to wait an additional ten min for their orders. No one was apologetic, it was just clear that they were aware the kitchen was behind. When the bill came nothing was done to help compensate the poor experience. We ordered the flourless cake and it was tiny and we got charged $9 for it. Complete rip off.

We went for a special family dinner and the food was great! Finding a place where the foodie parents and the picky kids are both happy is hard to find and we have found it with CIBO! The kids loved being able to watch the chefs make their dinner! The food runner and hostess were amazing... wishing our server had been more attentive. But overall, we were very pleased with our meals. We will be back soon!

Decided to go to Cibo with a friend on a Sunday night. It was really busy, which was a pleasant surprise, considering the economy in Calgary. Our main meals took a bit, and I wonder if our (very pleasant server) forgot to put in the main order after our starters, or if the kitchen was just super busy. I was fine with it, the food was great, as always.

Between the noise of the restaurant ( and we requested a quiet table), the not so great food, service was average I would only give Cibo a 1 star rating. Calgary has too many good restaurants to go to instead of this one.

We went for a family birthday and had a party of 7. Great place to bring a group. The service was outstanding and the atmosphere was relaxed and fun. The Thursday 5 for $20 appetizers were a huge winner, with the beets voted best overall. Our group had a pizza, 3 different pastas, the Osso Bucco and a Cibo burger. Only negative was the carrots that came with the Osso Bucco were way over cooked; so overall we were happy with all of the entrees! Portion sizes are good and everything came hot. The menu has great variety - we will definitely be back to try more of it!

The pasta was good but the pesto based dish lacked flavor. That ravioli dish was excellent. My son's kids pizza was large enough to feed me and then some. He really enjoyed it. Overall the meal was reasonably priced and you can't beat $4 house wine on Wednesday.

It was our anniversary and we noted this in the reservation. We were sat by the kitchen with a lot of traffic. We asked to move if a table came available. We saw that tables did become available but no
Move. The appetizers took 30min followed by the main course 5min later. Poor timing. The pizza was very average. The pesto pasta was too oily. The halibut was good not great and a bit overpriced. The mushroom ravioli was excellent. Overall we enjoyed ourselves but would try somewhere else before returning.

Overall it was pretty good. Being vegan can make it hard to go out with friends so I typically call in advance. Unfortunately when I called before going no one I could get in contact with was any help or would tell me about any options I would have on the menu besides "remove the cheese". My server was fantastic though. As soon as I told her I was vegan she immediately ran down the whole menu with me and she was always happy to laugh and have fun with the table. The food was good too.
