Diner Reviews
  • "We felt worlds away from the noise and exhaust fumes of 17th Avenue while dining on the Cibo patio. I had friends in from the coast and they were duly impressed with the environment, food, service and selection. This was my first patio seating there but it was worth the wait and I'll definitely be back."

  • "This was my second visit to Cibo, again, I was greeted by happy and helpful staff. We were helped promptly with drinks and food orders. food was served quickly. water was filled before our glasses were empty, Its nice not having to flag down busy staff to get water. The food was delicious. however, The pizza I had the first time visiting was so amazing I had a hard time not regretting having pizza again."

  • "My boyfriend and I went for our first time during pizza happy hour and loved it! We sat on the upper level and I thought the decoration and overall atmosphere was great and the food was fabulous! I had the zucchini and feta pizza and it was delicious. Made for a cheap date ($10.50 total!) that didn't sacrifice taste or romance. I would recommend this place to everyone!"

  • "Cibo is one of our favourite go-to places for Italian dining. The food is fresh and tasty and not pretentious. Even our US based visitors agree that it was good food!"

  • "Had a great overall experience at Cibo on my wedding anniversary. The service was top notch which can sometimes be suspect in Calgary these days with so many restaurants trying to stay afloat. The food was great, pasta, pizza, antipasto and my favorite the halibut ceviche!"

  • "I have been to Cibo numerous times and the food is always good and the service friendly. Prices are reasonable, especially during happy hour :) Recommend to anyone looking for a casual but nice atmosphere and good food to share with friends."

  • "We invited some friends out for dinner as we have been there before and really enjoyed it! The Pig Tails and Wild Boar Bacon Pizza were a big hit, our server was great she explained everything and didn't rush us in the least. The only complaint all of us had was the noise level we could barely hear each other but I am sure it being Stampede didn't help. Great Food! Please keep up the good work!"

  • "The first time I went to Cibo I had the chicken salad which was the best I had ever had. Since then I have been back twice and both times disappointed with the same salad. I was told they changed the recipe somewhat. Not sure why they messed with a good thing. Will not order that again. Had pasta and pizza both were good. Service was excellent. Bring back the old salad!!!"

  • "Great location, parking available within short distance. Our waitress, Claire, took care of us throughout the evening - service was not a negative issue. Looks like they have made improvements based on the negative reviews. Food was great. Beer was great. Thanks... dm"

  • "As far as the 17th ave dining scene goes.. this place is affordable, fun and hip. The service level is outstanding. Hats of to the servers and hosts who go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome. I loved the $5 pizza deals. Some of the best pizza in the city and with top notch igredients to boot. Perfect cocktail list and modern atmoshphere make this place a great patio spot too :)"

  • "Lucked out at the end of June with a sunny afternoon on the patio at Cibo for lunch with a friend. We shared a 3 piece Scodellina and ran out of accompanying bread crisps. Our server noticed this and brought us more fairly quickly. Everything was awesome but I don't think I'd order the Pork Panino again. Although it totally tasted fine it wasn't prepared how the menu described (radicchio replaced with iceberg??) and the focaccia bread was barely able to hold it together because it was so super fresh. Perhaps toasting/grilling it could've helped? I'm not sure... Either way I'm looking forward to checking out the patio again and sharing pizzas with friends!"

  • "There are very few places that cater to the niche of good food, good ambiance & kid-friendly too, but Cibo does. (It's also large-group friendly.) Great meal, great service and our 4-year-old guest liked it too. Definitely recommended."

  • "Great food, friendly service, and a nice wine list made for a great dinner at a decent price. Brought my parents and an Aunt and uncle on a Saturday night. They didn't really get the whole order and share whatever comes out first. But the server did a great job dividing it up into a proper first and second course. Vibrant atmosphere, made it a little hard for ol' pops to hear some of the conversation across the table. But they enjoyed the youthful ambiance nonetheless."

  • "Service was good, our server had lots to say about the menu items and did a good job describing them to us and letting us know the most popular/his fav etc, which I appreciated. Food was great, we tried 5 of the tapas options, all of which were amazing! The pizza was also delicious, perfect for sharing. The only thing I was disappointed with was the dessert. I ordered the chocolate praline gelato, and it just was not good. It was bitter and freezer burnt. However it was only $3 for the one scoop which is nothing to really complain about considering the rest of the experience was so lovely. Can't wait to go back again!"

  • "Delicious. I always enjoy the food at cibo and the servers are very friendly and pleasant. It was a little bit too noisy for my liking but that's no one's fault it's just an indicator that it's a busy place"

  • "Went for a belated Father's Day at Cibo the other night. I had been there a couple of times before, once for a work function and another time to enjoy their beautiful, secluded and flower-draped patio. The food, drinks, and service never disappoint and the shared plates with high-quality ingredients make for a fun and interactive meal. Their red velvet cake made with beets is divine. You will not be disappointed!"

  • "I've always had great experiences at cibo. In this case The food was great but the service was not. A few of us ordered appetizers which did not come before the meal. Server did not even give any recognition to this fact and just brushed it off."

  • "Thank you for a wonderful evening, great service, amazing selection of Italian food. Tiramasu was to die for! Ravioli was spicy good, which means I could still taste the food, Pizza was good, but a little burnt, coffee could have been hotter, but that could be me lol. Recommended by my son after his involvement with Top Chef Event."

  • "I took my boyfriend for a dinner date at Cibo where it was his first experience and my second. Due to the weather, we had an inside table. The tables were not crowded and we weren't rubbing shoulders with our neighbours by any means. The menu is designed for sharing, which is perfect for us; we had scoldellina (ricotta, bruschetta, and egglplant puree) and shared the farfalle. Food was amazing and our server was very attentive. I found the cost to be reasonable for the amount and quality of food that we shared. All this and a bottle of wine plus a generous tip was under $100."

  • "I always enjoy being out at a place that is busy, there is a positive energy in Cibo, I could feel that people were enjoying their time there. We booked on open table but when we arrived we had to wait about 10 minutes to be sat, they were very busy though and so we understood, they were doing their best. Our server was very sweet, a little shy. We shared a trio of dips for a starter and had to laugh at how many times we had to ask for more chips, and that each time they brought us more it was about 6 chips, the portioned ratio of chips to dip didn't work for us, and we found the salad we ordered to be a little plain. The pizza however was very good. My friend said he would never go back, I will go back and just stick to pizza and wine. "

  • "This restaurant is a really great spot with a nice private patio. Their wine nights on Thursdays are a great deal and nice to unwind from the week sitting at the bar. The food is really good as well. The chicken salad and the pizza are amazing! The only problem with the appies is that it is a lot of bread since you need to use the croustinis with all of them. "

  • "Was slightly disappointed that we couldn't sit on the patio even though they said they's tried to save us a two seater, but otherwise our waiter was wonderful and friendly. The lunch menu was amazing, we went with the $15 option which you can choose a combination of items and it was beyond an amazing deal and the food was great, definately reccomend."

  • "First time at CIBO did not disappoint. Menu provides interesting selections with affordable prices. Staff was attentive and efficient. Food was outstanding and dishes large enough for two to share. Would recommend going easy on number of first courses to save room for dessert. Overall, a pleasant and relaxed dining experience."
