    Birthday dinner- out with my partner we had barely sat down hadn’t even opened a menu before they came back to take an order. After we order our food showed up very fast which isn’t the worst thing, but we were hoping for a relaxing slower evening. We were in an out in about 45min, so we left to have dessert somewhere else.

    We had three bruschetta’s and the drunken mushroom pizza. The ricotta+fig- good balance salty+sweet, creamy and savoury. The tomato basil- very fresh taste similar to authentic Mexican salsa. Mushroom+goat cheese- creamy, salty and loads of seared mushrooms. We ordered bruschetta and pizza expecting tiny portions, that being said we were getting full by the time the pizza came. (Six pieces each.) That being said gf boxed 3 for later and we had 3 pieces of the drunken mushroom pizza. Which was balanced well, cheesy, smoky and the right amount of salt. We boxed 2 pieces and ate later cold, was good cold as well. Staff was friendly and not too in your face, but were there when we needed refreshments never letting our drinks get too low. The atmosphere was nice with great views of the river. The restaurant was nicely spaced and not overcrowded. Will be coming back to try the many great looking burgers we had seen at other tables. Also the had a pretty stacked looking bar if drinking is your jam.

    you gotta eat here!!! we spent 3.5 hrs here reuniting with an old friend over lunch. our server adapted to our pace and we never felt rushed. the cocktails, appies and entrees were all fab. the portions were huge, the curated playlist chosen by the hostess was not only as tasteful as the food, it was at a perfect volume. Parking might be the only drawback to the entire experience, however we came on Remembrance day so cost wasnt an issue, just finding a spot within a few blocks. This is our 2nd visit, the first being 7 years ago. We will return much sooner. Cibo is a special place in our city

    This was our first visit to the restaurant, but it won't be our last. Menu seemed to be limited however, in our party of four, we each had excellent meals with no regrets! Service and ambiance were fun and prices were in line. The building has a story as well!

    On arrival for a 18:45 reservation, we were told that there was another reservation for the table at 21:00. I don’t think we needed to know that. Our mains then came out while we were still eating our starters - I felt rushed. Food was good but I won’t go back in a hurry.

    Fairly quiet table so we were able to talk. Excellent service from Olaksandr! Food was really good….Arancini was superb! Caesar salad, drunken mushroom pizza very enjoyable. Only thing was the salad and pizza arrived just as we were finishing the arancini. We would have preferred a slower pace.
