The last time I had dinner at CIBO Centre Street was 2 years ago, it was ok....NOW, with the new ownership, it has improved to the point that it is unrecognizable....I mean this is a good way, love the way they have renovated the interior. It is wonderful, warm, welcoming....we enjoyed a great dinner, thoughtfully prepared, served.

A very pleasant surprise, I would recommend to anyone looking for a nice evening in a great restaurant, from a family dinner to a romantic night out....we will be back.

The only "complaint" I would have would be that the kitchen staff were clearly not following safe Covid-19 rules as their face masks were pulled down below their chin. The server tried to say they (all the kitchen staff) were just having a drink of water, which was total BS since we watched them for several minutes and my wife took a picture. When we complained, someone went back there and told them to put their masks back on. They evidently didn't realize they could be seen from the seating area. Otherwise, the food was good. Oh, and like most restaurants, the air conditioning was set to -85 degrees. On a day when it never got to +18 outside.

Great deals on appetizers on Thursdays. Would have liked the pizza to have a little more firmness as it was pretty floppy for thin crust pizza.

Delicious food, great service, great price. Unfortunately the patio is not as lush with flowers and plants as past years. But that certainly does not affect the food!

The food, service and ambiance is always wonderful! Great specials through the week and you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. We especially love their patio in the summers. The only thing that would make it better is if the patio was dog friendly so we could bring our pup with us. Overall, one of our favourite places in Calgary!

On Tuesdays all pastas are $12. This is such a great deal! Two of us had the Italian Meatballs. Since one of us has an egg allergy, we were able to swap out the tagliatelle for the gluten free pasta option. The Italian Meatballs with pasta is very good and is a generous portion. The third person ordered two Scodellina: Hummus and Brussell Sprouts. Both items were good and too much for one person.
Wait service was attentive. You have your choice to sit in the restaurant or on their patio.

Always good here. Great service and food. Look for special offers for each day of the week - really good value. Outside patio is lovely, but needed more shade the night we were there. Inside a bit more subdued.

We picked Cibo to eat out during Covid because of the large outdoor space. We have been here a lot over the years and on this occasion, we found the food to be just “bleh”. Definitely different and disappointing compared to previous visits.

I have been supporting Cibo for many years and find the new owners way better. Unfortunately food and service is a hit and miss all the time. Brought my family for my Dad’s 86 birthday food was incredible and so was the service but on Sunday it was just my Dad and I but the food and service wasn’t nearly as good. I am going tomorrow for lunch with my girlfriends hopefully we will get the best of both. 😊

Staff was friendly and welcoming. Service was very good and observant of COVID safety rules. We ate on the patio and, as in the past, enjoyed it. The risotto was very flavourful and just spicy enough. My companions reported favourably on the pizza and gnocchi.

My wife and I really enjoyed our Friday night date night at Cibo. The service and atmosphere are too notch. Even while busy it doesn't feel too loud and still very intimate. The food was outstanding. The mushroom pizza is my wife's new favourite. Would highly recommend this spot.

We live nearby so we’ve been going about twice a month for mini special occasions since the ownership change. (Atta boy from a boss, good grade etc.) We love the food so we keep coming back but there’s something going on with the work culture?
Nobody’s having any fun. Ever. None of them. It’s an effort to get squeeze out a smile. The man with the short white hair told my son off on the patio this summer for dropping his menu. This visit he gave us a warm smile but when I made a joke about the weather his face fell. That was more than he was capable of.
I’ve hesitated to write this review because the negative vibe is so palpable and so universal through all the staff that I feel the issue must be at a management level. I’m not writing this so that our server gets told off. I’m writing this review straight to management. You need to decide what you want this place to be. Our favourite (scodallini), the cocktails named after local communities and the charming decor all seem to indicate that you want this to be a neighbourhood joint. But the perfunctory and downright dour atmosphere has all the personality of a Bankers Hall lunch rush.
We were 2 couples and my son. We ordered a wine, a cocktail, a Shirley Temple and 2 beers. We were not offered refills on our drinks. The men asked for 2 more beers and they arrived 25 minutes later - after we were done eating and it was time for the bill. The place was almost empty. The other 3 of us were not offered refills.
This happens when people’s hearts are not in it.
Please create a better atmosphere FOR YOUR STAFF so that some happiness trickles down to us customers.
Thank you.
