We really enjoyed the restaurant, my only comment is that the portion size of the dishes was very small, even for four "old" ladies, and the price was expensive for such small dishes. I would never take a man to eat there.
An early dinner prior to an Orpheum concert and also a Birthday celebration, where the waiter and waiting staff were conscious of and put fine efforts into making it happen in a timely way.
The food was tasty and portions perfect. We, two ordered a salad and an appetizer, as our dinner and shared a yummy dessert.
All good! We will go back and recommend Cibo to friends. Keep up the fine standard.
The food was good - the bison was actually the best I've had, but the portions (especially the appetizers) were small - the check was not :)
My friend and I enjoyed a pre- Orpheum dinner and as always, Cibo did not disappoint. The restaurant was introducing a new menu so both my friend and I order to appetizers for our dinner along with a carafe of wine. Everything was excellent. Cibo is out go to place for pre-theater meals.
The bolognese sauce was tasteless and had barely a teaspoon of Parmesan on the top. It needed tomato sauce and seasonings.
I hold Open Table responsible for offering a good review for such a terrible place. The food was awful - cold, sticky pasta. The restaurant was empty and stayed mostly empty the whole time - I wonder why? It was terribly embarrassing for me, especially when my client agreed how awful it was. You should be ashamed to recommend such a place and to give it the rating you have. It makes me re-think Open Table.
Went for a casual dinner. Found the food not amazing, personally, Compared to other Italian restaurants
My wife and I just celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary with a special dinner at Cibo Trattoria. We had a nice, private table and we were able to have easy conversation at normal levels. Our server was excellent, very friendly and courteous. Great wine list, so much to choose from. The food was amazing, from the fresh soup of the day to the chicken with goat cheese meals we both enjoyed (best Brussel Sprouts I've ever had). A wonderful Tiramisu dessert and the tastiest Americano capped a great dining experience. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Portion sizes were small, price too high, limited menu selection
LOVED LOVED LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS PLACE. THE FOOD (LARGE PORTIONS PRESENTED BEAUTIFULLY), THE SERVICE (EFFICIENT BUT UNOBTRUSIVE) THE AMBIENCE (IT IS QUAINT AND BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED, REALLY ENJOYED THE CHOICE OF BACKGROUND MUSIC).
LOOKING FORWARD TO A RETURN VISIT!
Went for brunch and the food was only ok. I might come back to try for dinner and drinks since they are rated well, but I wasn’t impressed this time around.
Good food; different preparations; ran out of soup at 6:15 ; no menu items that are particularly child friendly but tried to accommodate special needs. Very helpful serving staff.
Enjoyed a wonderful pre concert menu with delicious choices that were beautifully presented. Service was extraordinary. I'm never disappointed at Cibo.
Good food, small portions... service was just okay, yet I would go again.
Lovely place but please make note the restaurant closes at 2pm sharp.
Cibo was a real find! Service excellent, atmosphere cozy and quite quiet with only 16 tables, food was fantastic! Highly recommended...
Absolutely one of the worst dining experiences of any Vancouver restaurants in the past year
We had good service and excellent good at a fair price
Will go again
Wow .. absolutely delicious . I had the 3 course meal and holy cow it was unreal . Not to mention the amazing service and ambiance .
- gnocchetti was great
- stuffed chicken was not that great with the tomato sauce
- pasta with clams pretty bland
- seafood soup was tiny and tomato-y
- interesting twist on tiramisu with a orange flavour (I liked it and I disliked it at the same time), the chocolate chunks in it were great
Everything was amazing and the service was outstanding!
The food was ok at best, but the portions weren’t very good. The lamb carpaccio was downright embarrassing.
The service was great, but we won’t be back.
We had small children with us and our server was wonderful! He really went above and beyond to accommodate their requests. Love this place.
Steak was cold, 20 minutes for our first round of drinks to get to our table. Small portions, my sister in law ordered pasta dish, we waited for it for awhile and then brought gnocchi. Said they ran out of the ravioli. Noone checked with us and asked us if we wanted something different. Sister in law hates gnocchi but isn't the type to complain about it. So the server avoided us like the plague afterwards and we sat around forever waiting for the bill and payment machine. Never going back
A great spot generally, and especially so for pre-theatre dining. Cocktails are exceptional, food is very good and the staff are exceptional. Will be back again, and certainly every time we are planning to attend a a performance downtown.
I have been to Cibo Trattoria many times but this will be the last. The price has gone up, while the portions are down. My wife is a very light eater but was given such a tiny serving of pasta that we definitely felt ripped off.
Incredible experience. Food was amazing and service was top notch. Thanks for the evening experience.
Great service. Good food. Salads were excellent, as was the Bolagnese. Ambiance is very appealing. Close to theatres on Granville. I look forward to returning.
Excellent choice for a pre-Orpheum meal. Superb service and food and wonderful suggestions from the sommelier. I'll be back
We enjoyed the "Orpheum" 3 course dinner very much. As well, we had two breakfasts in Cibo. We would recommend Cibo in terms of food freshness, variety, presentation and service.
Good food, good service. The chef was accommodating in modifying a couple dishes for my friends' preferences. The sommelier paired some good wines with our meals.
Cold wind blows in every time the door opened. The tables close to the door felt the breeze. There should be a short wall built to deflect the wind.
My Ravioli stuffed with mushrooms was excellent as was the shredded lamb of two of my 3 friends. The spaghetti my fourth friend had was bland.
I have been dining at Cibo a couple times a year for almost a decade. So, the truly horrible meal I had there last week was incredibly disappointing. Bison short ribs were tough (how is this even possible if braised long enough?), bland and luke-warm. Sweet potato purée was bland. My wife’s risotto was bland. Tiramisu was watery. Olive oil cake was dry (again, how is this possible?). Chef clearly did not pick up a salt shaker. Server brought the wrong bottle of wine. All in all, just not up to par in a city with so many excellent dining options. Won’t be back anytime soon.
Service: Were greeted rightaway with a smile and offered for a coat-check. Seated on a high table, across the warm fireplace. Met our server who was friendly and knows his wine list (pretty nice list). They are all very attentive to other tables too without looking so hectic even when it was busy.
Ambience: Felt so warm and cozy throughout our dinner. This place has an interesting design that combines huge mirror, artsy decoration, and a high ceiling. Looks a lot going on but it works really well with the design. Lighting was perfect too with different brightness available at certain spots. Saw a few speakers but couldnt recall if there were music playing, but noise were moderate with standard happy hungry people sound.
Food: Started with buratta which was perfect and fresh veggies. My partner had cauliflower soup with pork belly which she wished it's more seasoned. Second course, was glad that we had an Ocean-Wise salmon. Interesting beet risotto too. What we wish differently was the bison short rib and mashed sweet potato, needs to be more juicy and moist, and also warmer. The last course, try the olive cake if you like a warm moist cake with ice cream on top.
Great attentive service especially when we had pre-informed that we were attending a concert at the Orpheum-Location is perfect. Food portions are small for pasta-would it kill ya to offer bread or a dinner roll with the meal?? Just sayin’
We went for dine out Vancouver for their $30 prix fixe. The food was excellent and tasty; cauliflower soup followed by bison short rib and then a chocolate hazelnut tarte. Service was quite good and attentive as one could expect on a busy "dine-out" night. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and would definitely go back.
The atmosphere was great and the food tasted delicious, the problem was most of the menu was in italian and my date and I were first time "Dine-Out'ers". Despite making the reservations through Open table the waiter neglected to inform us how the $30 menu option worked so when he came back and asked us what we would like for dinner we ordered our entres. After the meal when dessert was offered I asked if it's part of the Dine-Out offer and that's when he told us it doesn't apply since we didn't order an appetizer at the beginning. Rather than a simple apology for miscommunication he returned to the front to grab a menu, come back to the table, and point out what we did wrong. I said I thought that that would have been explained in the beginning since the menu is so disorganized, and instead of trying to compensate for the mix up he made me feel dumb for not knowing how the menu worked then asked again if we would like dessert. Long story short, I paid $80 for two entres rather than $60 for two 3 course meals. Being young I feel like we were taken advantage of, since he knew we booked through Dine-Out Vancouver the menu options should have been briefly explained and if we were ordering entres instead of appetizers the least he could have done was confirm we were no longer wanting the $30 option, and mention which items were part of the Dine-Out deal instead of "presuming we changed our mind and weren't doing the Dine-Out menu". Great food, but we paid way too much for it.
Unfriendly server. Ingredients of the food were great but taste need more improvement. Cheese was extreamly salty. No one could finish it.
I ate from the Dine Out menu which is a great value for what you get. I had the cauliflower soup which was good. The braised bison short rib with sweet potato purée and mushrooms. I usually don’t like mushrooms but these were full of flavour. The bison however lacked flavour, and there meal lacked vibrant colours. The hazelnut chocolate tart was good, but not homemade which is understandable considering the mass amounts of people who are likely ordering that dessert from the dine out menu.
