    Bruschetta was quite nice. Pizza was OK. Ragu tasted like it came out of a jar of Chef Boyardee...ugh Waiter spilled water twice on the table, didn't clean it up, didn't even offer us some napkins to clean it up. 2nd drinks were never offered...not even a top of soda.

    Limited menu. I had the double pepperoni pizza. It was okay, but no better than fast food pizza. The crust was a bit soggy. The atmosphere was cool and the service was great.

    Enjoyed lunch with a friend. Meals were very good: Pasta, Garden Salad, Soup, Arancini. Also took home 2 pizzas for later, they were excellent even when reheated in the oven at home.

    Server brought out salad and featured burger at the same time but we wanted just the salad first so main meal didn’t get cold. But with that being said didn’t hesitate to bring a burger back once salads were finished. The menu showed burgers and sandwiches came with fries. Both time our burger was brought to us did not have fries. I’m now assuming the burger week featured burger didn’t come with a side but we were not advised prior. We just watched other patrons receiving their burgers with fries,

    The decor was appropriate for the history of the area, especially the brick walls. The furnishings were attractive, modern but with decorative nods to history. Of course the star of the decor is the Red River, easily visible from most tables. The wait staff were cheerful and informative, eager to provide an excellent dining experience. The flavours in my blueberry mule were beautifully balanced. My salmon was superb, with an amazingly crispy skin embellished with a complementary sauce. I loved the chickpea stew accompaniment. Perfect. My cheesecake was cool and amazingly light. I hadn’t dined with my niece for a long time, we had lots to talk about, but nobody rushed us. A thoroughly enjoyable dining experience.

    Another lovely eating experience at Cibo’s last night. We were able to grab a table on the patio and enjoy our food outdoors! Looking forward to coming back in a few weeks with a larger group and to try something new on the menu. Always great service and yummy food!

    I had the carbonara and was quite disappointed. It had an overbearing bitter taste. My partner had the burger it was nothing special, nor was the Margherita Pizza. Based on other reviews, I definitely expected more. I won't return.

    Horrible. Setting is great and service was adequate, but the food was inedible. Started with a cold and flavourless Ragu Bolonese. Menu said house sausage, braised beef and pancetta but was served penne in tomato sauce. Server said the sausage and pancetta were is the sauce - which makes no sense. Meal was replaced with Carbonara that was severely undercooked, had no flavour and provided a game of find the ingredients - I lost - there weren’t any. Terrible experience and anniversary celebration ruined. Extremely disappointing.

    Service was prompt and courteous from the greeting at the door, through dinner, and thanking us for joining them. The riverside location on a summer evening provided wonderful views of the river.

    My friend and I both had the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich with fries. The sandwich was quite good - the fries weren't terrific. We ate on the patio on a lovely cool day and it couldn't have been nicer. The service was very good - helpful people. I'd come back again - just would leave a lot more time to find a parking space in the area.
