    We had a romantic dinner at Cibo before the show. We found the service to be excellent and the food (grilled calamari, fresh pasta and tiramisu) to be fantastic! We had no issues with noise, but sat at a quiet table near the window. I would definitely go again....for good Italian that's closer to home.

    This was my 3rd time at Cibo, and it was wonderful as always. Our server (Shawna) was very knowledgeable and helpful with the menu and wine list especially. Dinner was delicious, we all had one of the fresh pastas made in-house, and shared bruschetta to start. Will continue to recommend, and will definitely return soon!

    It was great. We went here for my boyfriends birthday and it was coincidentally Lobster Tuesday. Everything was plated beautifully, including the bread served to us at the start. Lobster was cooked nicely and pasta was good. Can't compare to Wolfgang Puck, but it will do. I ordered the most food I ever have here, and we had a good time. The only complaint may be the noise level. We could not hear the waitress when she came to check up on us several times.

    Ambiance/atmosphere was great. Food was OK-- although our order was incorrect and we had to wait quite some time to get the right meals. The server was incredible rude, short and snippy. Unfortunately, one "bad person" ruined our experience.

    As one of Toronto's hot spot I was looking forward to a great Italian meal. Unfortunately, I received grilled tasteless octopus, funghi salad that lacked seasoning, and very raw risotto (that I had to send back). Not an establishment that I am eager to suggest to others looking for good Italian food.

    My husband and I made reservations at Cibo for an anniversary dinner. We were first timers and loved it! It's a casual vibe yet elegant with great food, drinks and wine. My husband loved the homemade raviolis and I appreciated the Gluten Free choices on the menu. Wish we had more time to spend at dinner (we had tickets to a concert). We would have ordered dessert and maybe had a drink at the bar. Our wait staff was excellent and informative. We will definitely go back to Cibo the next time we are in Toronto!

    Food was amazing, very very good. Server was not knowledgeable about the wine list. I asked for a recommendation and it just seemed to me that she didn't really know what to suggest. For a place that specializes in wine I found this disappointing. RegArdless she was very kind and caring and the wine we chose was good but overall service could be better if there was better knowledge about the wine list.

    My husband and I went to Cibo Wine Bar recently to celebrate my birthday. We've been there several times and have never been disappointed. The restaurant, itself, is beautiful and the dim lighting is very romantic. The wine list is wonderful, if you are looking to get a bottle, but slightly limited if you want wine by the glass. The food was fantastic! The fresh pasta is really delicious. We will definitely be back.

    Bad attitude...bad service...waitress argued w one that she did not substitute when she did. Other very serious issue asked 2 times that gf pasta was 100% gluten free as indicated on the menu...chef should have come out as patron indicated she was deathly allergic to gluten. Lack of education of staff or care my co-worker ended up in the hospital in serious condition. The only time waitress smiled was when paid. Never go!!! Karen

    I have been to CIBO numerous time for drinks and dinner and love it every single time. The service is great and food spectacular. Coming from a very Italian household, we are sometimes weary about paying and eating our home/cultural cuisine out. CIBO has mastered this type of cuisine. This past weekend was my first time attending their brunch service and they did not disappoint...delicious! I recommend this restaurant to both my Italian and non Italian friends. :-)

    Cibo is literally one of the best restaurants that I've been to in Toronto, I must say it's in my top 20 list! As a food aficionado, I definitely recommend this cool place; food is great and authentic, prices are reasonable, ambiance is great with a loft-sense interior design and of course the wine menu is awesome!! I must say the management was very attentive and asked for our feedback at the spot. I'll be there as much as I can at least till I try all the foods on the menu!
