Italian
“Cibo" (pronounced CHEE-bo) means food in Italian, and that’s what this Italian Bistro is all about. We like to keep the menu simple, tasty, and focused, using fresh local ingredients. Cure our own meats, make our own cheese and hand roll our pasta. We make almost everything in house with a menu that changes seasonally.

* Due to the popularity of our weekends, parties of 4 or less are requested to limit their stay to 2 hours in courtesy of reservations booked after them, thank you in advance *

Large parties of 6 or more will be charged an automatic gratuity of 18%

Superb restaurant, we will definitely return! Cappellacci on black truffle crema stole the show, best pasta we have ever had. The Bistecca was also amazing and a great portion size for sharing. Best cocktail is the bergamot and ginger iced tea.

Enjoyed Cibo- went in with no real expectations (had heard good things though) and was totally impressed. Arancini were delicious and fell in love with the rabbit and duck plates- the duck is, by far, among the best I’ve had in the city, perhaps tops. Dessert was tasty and wine list while short, still had good choices. Cappuccinos were also delicious.

Amazing! We love small, independent restaurants so we thought we would try Cibo. Everything about our experience was incredible. We had the carpaccio, shaved Brussels sprout salad, and their pasta special, a tortellini. Everything was very fresh and absolutely delicious. Try their Rosmarino Agro Dolce from their cocktail menu. Their mixologist is very talented!

One of the best resto meals I have had in a long time. The meal was reminiscent of our family trip to Tuscany because of the food and the unhurried atmosphere. The food was amazing. The presentation was beautiful. I thought the serving size was fair for the price and the quality of the food. The flavour in the Arancini was exquisite and the gnocchi was light with a delicious sauce. Everyone in our group enjoyed the meal. The waitress was really good. She was attentive but not overbearing and offered good suggestions. Overall it was an excellent experience.

My daughter ordered a pasta dish and we had to reorder 3x because they literally gave her 3 spaghettis.
Portions are way to small for what you pay.

Our visit to Cibo was outstanding. We started our evening with a perfectly mixed Negroni which we enjoyed with Pelenta Freitas . We then shared a memorable arugula salad a spicy verde pasta and the sea bass special. It was all above and beyond our high expectations. Good work guys . See you soon

This was our second time coming to Cibo. The first we were blown away by the quality and authenticity of the dishes. Unfortunately, this time was not the case. We tried the octopus, as a starter, it was ok. The dish had to much chickpea puree, and not enough acid (green sauce) to make the dish sing. We also had the Arancini and the polenta Fritta, which were both up to standard. We then had the Garganelli and the Pappardelle, which were pretty much the same dish with the same sauce. In a restaurant with a limited menu, there needs to be a focus on diversity of dishes. Both sauces were heavy with red bell pepper, which took away from the other delicate flavours of the parmessan and meat. Finally we have the Osso Bucco as the main, I say finally because the whole meal took about 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete, and it was ok. As you can tell we have very high standards, which Cibo more than met last time, but in regards to the money and expectations, unfortunately Cibo did not deliver as well as I know it can based off our first experience

Everything was great except the very small portions. The lamb entree I got was very well cooked except it lacked flavour- more flavour would have nailed it. Overall we had a good experience.

The food was amazing but not nearly enough. We shared an appetizer and each ordered a pasta dish, spent $100 and left hungry. We had to pick up more food on the way home. Atmosphere and service were great. The waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and made good recommendations. We will not go back, if we’re going to spend that much money on dinner we’ll go somewhere with better value.
