For those looking for well prepared pasta, innovative twists on classic italian appetizers and attentive service, this is highly recommended. Tables can be small if you order a selection of items and room a little restrictive for access.

It is a very cute restaurant and atmosphere. It’s on the smaller side which made it perfect for breakfast. The waiter was awesome. He had a great balance of checking in on us and letting us be while we were just chatting. We never felt rushed, but always felt taken care of.

Lovely brunch. Loved the Mimosa special which is a bottle of Prosecco and a variety of fresh juices. We easily spent 2.5 hours there. Lovely ambience. Great food.

We are visiting Vancouver for the first time and had the opportunity to discover this restaurant through this app. The service was excellent, the food delicious and with the current circumstances, there was enough space between the tables. We had a great time and would love to come back.

As ever, Cibo offers good food from an Italian styled menu. The service is generally very attentive but there was one small hiccup on this last visit -- bur quickly corrected. I do not like the music choice.

Great food, service, and wine list. We had the carpaccio, kale, stuffed squid, gnocchi, and called a day ahead for their Florentine Steak (Off menu). Everything was delicious. Steak coooked to perfection. We will definitely get the steak again. Had 2 bottles of delicious and fair priced Italian wine. Service was over the top. Thanks for such a great experience!

The atmosphere was inviting and relaxed. The stuffed calamari was amazing! The risotto was fantastic! Who knew bone marrow could work so well in it. Wow. The rib-eye steak was delectable and merely melted in your mouth. We chose wine from Italy (as the food is decidedly Italian. The wine list is great with the old world wines being priced quite high. The wine was very good though. Our cocktails were handcrafted and tasted amazing! The desserts were a fitting end to a wonderful meal and date. The service was impeccable and our server paid attention to the smallest detail which made our time there that much better! We will definitely be coming back again...it's our new favourite for Italian cuisine! Thank you for the evening!

I’ve never sent good back before but this is a first. There were only 2 tables being served and it took an hour and 15 mins to get our dishes. I ordered the cannelloni and it came out looking like a taquito...super dry and extremely oily. The oil was pooling on my plate. They offered to replace it with a different dish but didn’t want to wait another hour+ for the replacement. Thankfully they didn’t charge for it.

Aside from that, the server was nice. It was her first day.

No one else was there this day. It was a 1pm reservation for Monday but I had expected a few more people for lunch.
Food was good. The server recommended a couple of dishes for us; both were good. The nicest thing was the ability to discuss subjects and not have competing noise. Must try this restaurant in the evening.

It was my friend’s birthday. I requested for a birthday cake with lettering on the plate on the day itself and they actually made it happen. Moreover, the meal was amazing and our server was extremely friendly. I would definitely visit again.

When we arrived for our reservation, the restaurant was still booked with a large party that had run overtime, hence no table for us in the restaurant. They were very accommodating, and gave us a table in the lounge , offered us a complimentary drink, and then when the party left , we were seated in the restaurant. It was actually lovely by then, as it was just the 4 of us and it felt like a private dining room experience. The staff were very attentive and both service and food were excellent.

Superior. Lovely ambience and great food. The steak was perfect, as was the fresh pasta bolognese. Even the KALE was great. Hey, if you can make kale taste good, you are a master chef.
By the way, our schedule got switched around so we were HOURS early and they graciously seated us on a busy Saturday night.

The food and drinks were good and the server was nice, but there were several mis-steps in the service dept:
- Our waters were never refilled.
- Long periods of time before someone checked in
- After dinner was finished it was a while before we were asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu and only came by with it after we got his attention after waiting for a while. He apologized saying he was "tied-up" but customers don't want to hear excuses. My wife told him it only takes 2 seconds to grab them (it's not a big room) and sure enough he was back in 2 seconds to grab them. Hopefully it was a learning experience.

The wine was the highlight of the night.
High ceilings & closely spaced tables meant that even at 6pm everyone was practically shouting, both tables either side of us sent meals back & complained, we all waited 45 minutes to 1 hour for our food.

Food was very tasty but portions were a bit small for the price asked. Tasting combinations were Interesting and original while respecting fine Italian food standards.
Service was great, discret and efficient even if the whole room was managed by only one waitress, sometimes two.

We definitely come back and try out all of your menu soon.

Also we tried UVA after the dinner but we went the bar in hotel George because was so noise and the bar counter was messy.
