Celebrating my 56th Birthday on a quiet Monday night...only 1 other table besides my wife and I...nice room, warm, with great music, lighting, and vibe, considering it was very quiet, which is ok for us...hard to make any mistakes from the back of the house, to the front of the house...Eden was our server, and was very polished, friendly, interesting, and efficient. The food was very good, tasty, nicely presented, average portions, Octopus carpaccio was on the smallish side, and a little bland, Beef tartar was delicious, nice portion, and also had the Tuna crudo, also nicely presented, beautifully executed! My wife and I continued to share as she always wants to eat this way...for the main course we shared the Agnolotti del Plin, which was superb, albeit a smallish portion, and one of my favorite Linguini Vongole, which was wonderful! The young Chef has game, overall a great experience, and will be back to try their Happy Hour! Also, a central location, and nice little Boutique Hotel!

Amazing fully immersive experience with all of the senses. Food and service were absolute perfection. The staff know the menu and wine pairings inside and out.
We will happily come back many times.

Came looking forward to the lunch menu but was told only had the brunch menu for a 1pm Friday reservation, although on the sign said lunch was available. Not a fan of brunch. Very disappointed.

Food was excellent over the top. They gave us very nice table by the fireplace. Highly recommend the wine pairing option as it made the meal more memorable. We have booked again for our next celebration.

Came for the prix fixe New Years Eve menu.

Had high expectations but unfortunately this evening did fall short.
Positives - everyone that works here is extremely nice and polite. It is our server that redeemed our night. The atmosphere of the restaurant is fantastic, warm and eclectic.

Negatives - It certainly felt the restaurant staff were quite frazzled which was clearly seen in the food and service.

We received our table 30 mins after the time we booked. After 15mins of waiting at the door, they provided us a seat at the bar with glass of wine which was a great save.

Once we were seated, this is where things really fell apart.
It took 25mins to be spoken to after being served water. At this stage we had been at the restaurant for almost an hour with an empty stomach and wine. We had high hopes of ordering the prefix with wine pairings but by the time someone came to take our order, there was only 2 minutes left to order our drinks (due to the provincial law on NYE). So in order to make up for this, it was suggested we get a bottle of wine to set us for the night with a great deal (a little disappointing since the menu had lobster and steak.)

Finally when the first course arrived, turns out it was the wrong dish. After realizing the mistake they removed it, but we proceeded to wait another 15 minutes to receive our first course.

The first and second course were great. However the rest of the dishes lacked flavour and were not cooked correctly perhaps due to stress in the kitchen (flour in the roux, well done lobster, deconstructed tiramisu with no resemblance to the real flavours i.e. coffee or chocolate and was overly sweet.)

Essentially this would not qualify as a "fine" dining experience. The service was pleasant, the atmosphere was warm and vibrant, but the food and experience lacked the finishing touches for it to be fine dining along with the cost associated.

Our server was lovely and food was good but we all honestly found the guy there to be a bit rude. My gf barely made it a foot in the door before he sternly said "you need a mask". My gf knew that and forgot hers and was planning to get one from the table at the front. You need to take a couple steps in the door to reach a mask at hostess area. Nicer way too remind people especially since wearing in a restaurant is very new to us all.

Likely won't be back for while. His rudeness didn't sit well with us.

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.

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.
