Diner Reviews
  • "Service was fantastic, food was perfect. Love this restaurant."

  • "Tuesday night was cheap drink night! Who knew?! This was my fourth time at Cibo but this time I took my boyfriend for his birthday. I love Cibo because it's perfect with lots of friends because you can share everything. This time was a bit different with just the two of us but I had him instantly hooked with the lamb meat balls and a variety of other snackables. We finished with gnocchi which is my other fave dish, and his now too. Thank you for another wonderful experience and I can't wait till our next visit."

  • "Love Cibo! It's our 'go-to' place. Staff is consistently friendly and helpful and the food is always delicious. I love introducing friends and family to Cibo. During the summer, the patio is a lovely place to be! Soak up the sun surrounded by fresh herbs and flowers and happy dining companions. Oh and have a cocktail. They're fabulous."

  • "My husband and I made reservations for an early Saturday evening meal at Cibo, and managed to get a table on their lovely patio. The patio was rustic and well covered by umbrellas with great privacy (but not so much the noise) from the bustle of 17 ave. We were impressed with our service, the food and the price of our meal. We shared an appy, lamb meatballs, highly recommend, and I had the ravioli, which was delicious! My husband enjoyed the pappardelle but thinks the next tme he would opt for a meat dish. We also shared a tiramisu that was light and delicious. All of this and a bottle of wine for just under a hundred dollars impressed us and we will definitely be back!"

  • "Terrible service. Table 8. Maybe the automatic gratuity prompted our server to think things such as clearing plates and offering coffee or dessert were unnecessary."

  • "Great food, good wine. Love the scodellina & the spicy meatball pizza was delicioso! Great ambiance as well, since we sat on their patio."

  • "Had team lunch for 6, service was efficient, portions appropriate. Sat on the beautiful patio and felt like we were in Tuscany! We were done in an hour, even after having desert. An excellent outing."

  • "The chef, or chefs, need to cut back on the oil a bit. Though the oil quality was high, there was too much of it. The bottom of the bowl had a small pool of oil left over at the end of the meal. The service was glacial even though the restaurant was about half full. The actual food (notwithstanding the oil) was very well-prepared and seasoned with an expert hand. Because of this, I'd give Cibo 6 out o 10 stars, but it could jump up with just minor changes. So close."

  • "Just a great place to catch up with a dear friend over wonderful food and great wine. Fantastic service!"

  • "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!"

  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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!!!"

  • "The food was great. My clients really loved the luncheon menu that allowed them to try small portions of different items on the menu."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
