My 4th time in 12 months - I save VIBO for special occasions - and was once again pleased with the 'value-for-dollar,' tasty food and wide selection, plus excellent, friendly servers. A real gem in the west-end of Toronto, and a 3 minute walk from a subway station. Bonus.

Really surprised by this long standing neighborhood gem. Despite living in the KIngsway for about 5 years now I had never been. My wife is Italian and we never really eat italian when we go out. Last minute decision we ended up here and we both raved about the food. We were with our two children, 1 & 3 years old so we came in pretty early, but by the time we left the place was packed, and for good reason. Food was incredible, atmosphere was nice and the staff was very attentive. Will definitely be returning.

Everything about this restaurant is beyond amazing! Once we randomly explored this place, it became our fave place to go to for all special occassions & some every day dining! The atmosphere is romantic especially on the evenings with live pianist playing. Everything from appetizers to desserts are great & very delish choices they provide! The best part: are the waiters with a great sense of humor, providing excellent service in a friendly & very professional manner! Thank you to everyone at VIBO for all your great & hard work!

Great spot, great service from walking in the door, to waiting at the bar, to being looked after over dinner. Everything was delicious and fresh. Live piano was a nice welcomed touch. Menu is great, wondering if there might be a few more mains to offer in the future such as some beautiful crisppy duck or some traditional Pork dishes with some nice crackle...the Cesar dressing was very tasty...some deep fried strips of maiali orecchio would be awesome not to say the prosciutto wasn't nice.

An exceptional experience for my birthday! The service was impeccable and the food was superb especially the grilled octopus appetizer, we ended up ordering a few extra servings as even the teenagers liked it. Despite being very crowded on a Saturday night (many parties booked) the staff was efficient, pleasant and relaxed. Definitely going back soon

The best thing here was the server Alex. The food was average... Salad was bland and the fettucine bolognese lacked spice. High prices for mediocre food.

First off despite the rating we love this restaurant. We live close by and have been there numerous times. This visit was not great. Might be due to it was a Saturday night and it was too busy for the kitchen. Food was average or below average compared to past experiences. Looked like both entres had sat under the heat lamp for an extended period of time. Also if you are going to have specials and charge exorbitant pricing, it might be a good idea to be upfront about it. A Provimi Veal chop shouldn't cost $63.00. And as I mentioned, if it does let me know it up front. Service was slow, indifferent and the food was bland and uninspiring. Dinner for two with a modest bottle of wine was $230.00 plus tip. I think Vibo is becoming a little complacent. Likely won't change anytime soon though until the crowds start to thin out. My guess is they will if more people experience what we did.

We had great service. I ordered the $30.00 pork chop which was very tasty, but the potatoes were stone cold as were my companion's potatoes. Really? Mashed potatoes can't arrive hot at a restaurant that charges so much. I sent my meal back to be reheated and it returned just lukewarm.

Your chairs are to low for the tables you have, very uncomfortable for dining. The food is not very good, you need a better chef, which I know is hard to come by these days.
Your place is clean, the service is very good. We love to come back when your food is much improved.

Good overall however we were asked three separate times about drinks by three different serving staff. This comes across as being a little pushy. They should also be communicating between the servers.

A dinner for six adults to celebrate a birthday. Excellent food. The liver was particularly good. We ate Arctic char, blackened red snapper and some delicious white anchovies in a delightful salad. Desserts included tiramisu, sticky toffee pudding and creme brûlée. No disappointments there!

My only comment would be that out of five tables in the section where we were seated three had very young children (one in a high chair and two in booster seats.

Had I realized the rear section of the restaurant was open I would have asked to be relocated back there. I found the children distracting and the clicking sounds from iPad usage annoying.

Thank goodness we enjoyed each other’s company enough so the disturbances were minimal.

This is intended as a heads up to the restaurant to try to pay a bit of attention to this type of scenario.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ViBo. Food and service top notch.

An absolute MUST! Probably the best pasta I’ve ever had. Pasta of the day. My dietary restrictions we accommodated (vegetarian for me and milk for my spouse). The service was awesome.
Loved it! Happened to be near Bloor West and checked Trip Advisor for Italian in the area.
Cheers!
