Great hostess/bar tending staff. Good pizza but the other entrees weren’t much. A very long wait to even get our drinks, an hour to get salads, missed items by the server. And she couldn’t be heard by anyone so it wasn’t too surprising. Even with an empty section we had to tackle the server for the bill. Sit at the bar- stick to pizza and wine, you’ll be fine!

Been to Cibo lots over the years and this by far was the worst, sadly. I’m not inclined to come back after this experience. Staff was inattentive, but our waitress was friendly when she came by, food was sub-par.

Great food, with prompt service as we were on the way to a concert. Thanks for a pleasant and delicious meal. Desserts - white chocolate cheesecake and chocolate mousse - were scrumptious!

It was horrible service! We were there twice within one week. With two different couples. The service was sub standard. The food was okay. Missing ingredients. The chicken still had bones in it and cartilage chunk. After trying it twice we will probably never return.

We took advantage of their Thursday night special on appy's which was 5 for $20...we order 10 appy's shared with 4 people Really good range of tastes from Calamari, Lamb Meatballs, warm olives, humus, fries, and brusetta. This restaurant has created great value during these tough times for many people in Calgary...check their daily specials.

I don't like to write a bad review, so I'll start with the good. The wait staff at CIBO is very good, they were attentive and polite, basically everything you would want. Now for the bad, the food unfortunately was almost inedible, we ordered my kids a cheese pizza and they were ok with it, but they are 6 & 4 and hardly know better. My wife ordered the risotto, and I ordered the tagliatelle. Hers was so over done, and my pasta was so dry and even after ordering extra sauce I still couldn't eat it. This is the first time both of us had left probably 3/4 of our meals at a restaurant. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone unfortunately, and I do not like leaving bad reviews, however I really felt that the staff needed to be commended, and the food was a giant miss. Hopefully, just a bad day, because the ambience and the vibe of this place was also very good.

I have been coming to Cibo for a long time and this experience was by far the worst one. The food (pizza and a burger) were hard and overcooked. There were mice running around all over the deck. The server forgot about us most of the time. Super unfortunate. I recommended this place to my business partner and it was almost embarrassing.

Despite having a reservation which I confirmed the day before, we still had to wait for a table to be made up for us (a party of 7). We were seated in a very dark corner in the back - it seemed that they were seating families back here. It would have been nice to sit in a brighter location considering it was lunchtime and not at all busy.

This is my go to restaurant. I went for my birthday and overall everyone was happy with their meals except my penne pasta came out cold (actually cold, not warm), bland, and was missing an ingredient. This was surprising as Cibos normally has consistent high quality food. I will take this as an anomaly and try going again in a bit. Overall a good evening.

food tasty; spacious upstairs; i think great for office parties; our server was not the best (whether busy or not)...she needs a refresher course on how to be hospitable...never even intro herself or hardly smiled...she received a tip but a minimal one...i guarantee she will get higher tips if she improved her overall game

I’ve enjoyed Cibo for years, but this time was not the same... service was terrible. Our server would bring a single drink at a time, take one order, bring a drink, take one order, bring a drink... it was laughable. We were a party of six; some had to leave early, but some of us wanted to stay. So we settled up, but three of us wanted to stay for another drink. Despite literally trying to wave down a server for another beverage, we were ignored. I’m disappointed in the visit - really hope they can turn things around.

As a frequent customer at Cibo, I was extremely disappointed in the service we received. We were seated upstairs and our waitress only had 3 other tables. It was 15mins before we saw our waitress and she was quite rude and short when she came to take our order. She couldn’t tell us much about the menu or answer our questions. Our main meals came out before our appies as she “forgot to punch them in” and additionally the burger came out with pork on it despite our specific request of NO PORK. For second round of drinks, only one was served, she forgot the other. Overall, this was a terrible dining experience and I couldn’t wait to get out of there. I suggest you hire better staff before you lose more customers.

I've been to Cibo on 17th Avenue a few times now and it has been great every time. The food is good comfort food. Our waiter was great and very attentive. There is nothing bad to say about Cibo. It doesn't necessarily WOW like some other gems in Calgary, but it does provide consistently good food and a good wait staff. Definitely worth coming in for a bite. Also, there happy hour is unbeatable! Check it out.
