This visit was our first, and we were pleasantly delighted to find a restaurant where you can converse with your companion.
Decor is not opulent but nicely designed .
Staff were very hospitable and knowledgeable.
The prosciutto and salami plate we shared was delicious. The foccacio plate with olives and pepper was super. Oddly, the olives tasted kalamata rather than Italian.
We had bistecca alla griglia was good...caveat...their medium rare is red, not pink.
Overall, both of us, my wife and I, enjoyed our dinner and have already recommended Cibo to our friends.

Good vibe and atmosphere with food quality to match but portions are pretty small for the price in my opinion

Loved the restaurant however the server did not seem interested in us at all. The server beside us suggested bread and brought them oil and balsamic however we had to ask for everything . We always tip 20% and did but really service was very weak .

Pappardelle was quite undercooked (which was unexpected for fresh pasta).

We’ve been to Cibo about 4 times and it is very hit or miss but this time it was phenomenal. The food was hot and fresh and I think the key is to go when it is busy. The food seems to be better. The service was a bit slow but when the food is good that doesn’t matter as much. Their Sunday all you can eat brunch is great as well.

Very disappointed as there were a handful of issues that could have been solved swiftly and effectively.
First upon arrival my girlfriend and i checked in with the host and a manager close by came to seat us, she seemed to have changed where we were seated on their electronic seating plan.
we were sat just to the left of the host stand, and a cold winter breeze would gust our way every time the door opens. it didn’t happen too often so we were content. By the time our meal came it was cold within minutes due to the amount of people coming in and out of the restaurant.
When asking my server to speak with management due to a reservation problem, we received attitude and she stomped to the other server nearby and started complaining about tables.
when a manager arrived i voiced my concerns, stating everything was well apart with the fact that i booked a reservation for a table ahead of time and was placed at a non ideal table by the door in which my girlfriend and i could not enjoy our meal. The manager spoke to me as you would speak to a complaining child and looked as if he was trying not to roll his eyes.
Very disappointed in this restaurant as i have heard lovely things about it.
Good service is not difficult to achieve. Good food can be hard to find, and the food here is wonderful as well as the cocktails

Always great food! Polenta fries were great but had no salt. Zucchini and artichoke starter is amazing.
Pasta is always great.
Service is friendly, and knowledgeable.

The sommelier was incredible - she listened to two different tastes and suggested an amazing bottle to suit both palates. Fabulous attention to detail from all servers.

The food is bad (at best) - our party ordered 2 pastas and the only flavor we tasted was extreme salt. Service was slow and unhelpful. Didnt have high expectations but for 140 bucks for 2 - thats insane. Will not return again.

Overpriced for the portions and quality of food.
The seared ahi tuna for $32 was definitely not worth it in taste or size.
Salads are Meh...I can make it better at home.
Disappointed.

Went on a date for dinner with my fiancé and we were pretty unimpressed with the food. We ordered the Lobster ravioli and a pizza and neither seemed fresh - the ravioli looked like it had been sitting under a heat lamp as the sauce was a different colour on the top than under the pasta. The menu said the pasta was made fresh in house but it honestly seemed like a store bought variety. The pizza crust and cheese were thicker than expected - for the price you pay we expected a nice thin crust chewy dough and fresh toppings but that’s not what we received. The atmosphere and decor were nice, but honestly we were pretty disappointed with the quality of food.

Very good restaurant. Went to CIBO wine bar on a Sunday night with friends so it was very quiet.

Service was excellent, the ambiance is very nice. Apps and meals were all very good, tasty, adequate portions etc. No real qualms or complaints. Recommended.

We expected more from the cesar salad (bacon bits were used and not bacon strips, dressing wasn't very flavourful, wasn't worth the price) but the pizza was very good and they are quite large as well. Great wine selection when buying a bottle. Too expensive if you are buying a single glass though. Great atmosphere and interior décor.

Celebrated NYE at CIBO. Our server was amazing, checked up on us and made sure we were good. We ordered arancini which was amazing. Lobster ravioli, bruschetta and margarita pizza which was okay too. Glad I tried it, I don’t think I would order these items again.

The restaurant is amazing but the sommelier was so rude it almost ruined our experience entirely. She was trying so hard to up-sell she came across as desperate and rude, completely tacky.
Our server was lovely and the food was great. The most memorable part was the terrible sommelier unfortunately, so we won’t be back.

Wonderful venue. Easy walk from AGO for dinner. Delicious food. Could have used some options in appies that were better for sharing amongst a large table. But was still delicious and the Thursday 1/2 price wine was a nice surprise. Would definitely recommend for a nice dinner out. Everyone at our table had one of the pasta dishes and none were disappointed.

Food was very tasty and service was very efficient. Overall, I would recommend, but there are a few areas for improvement:

Wine was very pricey; I ordered a small (5 oz.) glass to keep my bill at a more reasonable amount (would have otherwise ordered a large glass).

Tables are crammed in the restaurant; was challenging to get in and out without accidentally bumping into someone at another table.

Music was very loud; made it somewhat difficult to have a conversation.

Bathrooms were dirty; for an establishment like this one, I would expect cleaner washrooms.

Food was great. Ambience inside was great. Our table was by the window and there were smokers right outside the window all night. Not sure if the server was having a bad day; but, she could have been more attentive.
