Not a great experience overall. Neither the food nor the service was good. Won’t go back.

Food and cocktails were amazing! Great value on the half priced pasta night. Honestly service wasn’t great. I think our table was in an awkward place, right next to washrooms and kind of secluded. We didn’t seem to have a server and had to flag people down multiple times to order/get cutlery, since we didn’t have a specific server we were asked if we wanted dessert/the bill multiple times before all our food had even been served. The servers were all nice, food tasted fantastic, just a lot of confusion in the service that night.

Service very slow. Cibo have taken classic Italian food and somehow made it boring. Dont order the bruschetta or Arancini, you'll be very disappointed. Portions are small and don't reflect the price or environment. Charged $3 for a side of hot sauce. No atmosphere. Won't be returning.

Honestly it was alright but nothing spectacular. I’d heard a lot about cibo and was super excited to try it out, but the food took quite a while to hit the table and wasn’t fantastic. I will say though, our server was great. She maintained presence at the table without being overbearing, as well she was efficient and professional with her service.

Service was super slow and we barely saw our waiter. Food was good but the wait time for ordering, and drinks arriving was a bit disappointing. They weren’t super busy in our section but who knows how many tables they assign their people. The daily specials are too good to pass up though!

Had a pretty disappointing dinner at Cibo on Saturday night. We waited a good two hours for our meals. Granted, it was quite busy but we there was no acknowledgement from our server or the manager (who was helping out all night) about how long our food was taking. The food was fine but wasn't super hot when it arrived. Our server seemed in over his head. We were thankful the manager stepped in and helped get our bills and take payment, or else I'm sure we would have been stuck there another hour.

We made the mistake of ordering the burger, which was on special. It was very greasy as were the accompanying truffle fries. I really wished I had ordered something less greasy. The ambiance is very casual...the tables and walls look like reclaimed/recycled wood. Just ok. Not sure if I'd return.

We were not seated in the requested section on my reservation, the service was slow, the food took an exceptionally long time. I done here frequently, and I’ve been deeply disappointed.

We were able to sit on the patio and the food was delicious..service was good. It was Mother’s Day so there were kids...one very energetic and loud little girl beside us which was a little distracting.

We mentioned it was my girlfriends birthday to the waitress just for conversation , but our server didn’t seem to care. We weren’t looking for a hand out or anything but something would have been nice. It was pretty busy on the patio which we realized but the service was still mediocre.

The food and drinks we amazing as always.

Recommended by a work friend who goes to Cibo for regular date nights when she heard I was looking for good pizza in Calgary. It met expectations. Took hubby for his birthday and the food was delicious from the appetizer to the two pizzas we tried. Not too salty, superb service and a delightful patio for ambiance. We broused the dessert menu and were tempted despite having an entire cake waiting for us at home—it looks amazing, but we restrained ourselves with great difficulty. I highly recommend. Our server was outstanding too. We will definitely be back again for multiple dinners.

It was mine and my families first time to Cibo, we went as I had gotten a job earlier in the day and we were celebrating. The drinks were good and our server Francesca was excellent but the kitchen was so slow, had the food not been great I would not go back, it was a Tuesday so I'm not sure what was going on. If you go beware it could be a while to get your food.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our previous Sunday night pizza nights at your restaurant..however, the last few times (during the last six weeks) that we have come, we have had a long wait for our pizza.. it seems like there is not enough servers or cooks..the pizza has appeared to our table with very little on it..the couple of rows of beer that my husband and I have enjoyed have not been available.. the ambience has been very loud..honestly, this was our family’s favorite to all meet on a Sunday night, but we have decided to not meet there for a while..

Margherita drink was too sweet, bruschetta is underwhelming, pizza was really good. It falls under that typical trap in which restaurants get too popular and sacrifice service and quality to satisfy large groups. It’s still a good restaurant but it isn’t as good as I’ve seen in the past.

We loved our time today. Hosted 6 others and had a great time out. Food was great. Happy hour... You can't beat the value! It was louder than normal today so we struggled to hear eachother but we still loved our experience. Cibos is a regular for me. Always a great stop.

Great deal with small plates on Thursdays. The Brussels sprouts were far more al dente than any of us liked but otherwise good food at a great price.

I've been to Cibo a number of times and always enjoy it. This past Sunday the food was not nearly as good as it usually is. The pizza lacked toppings and flavour. Not the usual fantastic pizza I've had in the past. Our server was really great, even though she seemed to be extremely busy. Chalking the pizza up to an off night .

Despite mistakenly making a reservation for 10 on Sunday instead of Saturday, Cibo was great and graciously made space for our group. The service was great and the server went the extra mile to get a candle on a cannoli, kept our big group well fed, watered and liquored and we had a great time. Cibo's pizzas are also great and can easily be made vegan. Thanks Cibo :)
