Here's how you can have a solid dining experience like we did:

Go to Cibo on a Thursday at 8:30 PM. This way, you can take advantage of the evening special of 5 scodellina for 20 bucks (or 3 for 12). Come 9 PM, the late night happy hour begins and you can grab beer or wine for 4 bucks, select pizzas for 5 bucks, and select scodellina for 4 bucks. It's filling, high quality food for what I think is great value.

PS. My favourite scodellina were the lamb meatballs, arancini, and roasted cauliflower.

I have been to CIBO several times and unfortunately this time it was loud, the service was average and the food was cold. This is a busy time of year and the restaurant was full which is good for them but not for customers who would like to hear each other across the table.

This was the second time I had been at Cibos and I returned because I knew I could take a vegetarian there with confidence that she could find something good to eat on the menu. We enjoyed the food and the conversation. The waiter was probably new.

The ambiance here is fantastic. Pizza is very good. Not a huge fan of the food for the price. I had the Pear and Gorgonzola Pizza 5/5, Brussel Sprouts charred with balsamic glaze 4/5 (too sweet for me), Bruschetta 5/5, Squash Risotto 2/5 (for the price $19, nothing special, under cooked squash and wild rice), truffle fries 5/5, Drinks (Friday special $5) 4/5. Service was very good, we asked to have the birthday girl’s food split onto everyone’s bill but she put it all on my bill so I ended up paying for most of it which was a bit annoying. They are very kid friendly and the children’s portions are huge for the price! If you need to make a reservation for more than 10 you have to call. The seating availability is also incorrect. When I tried to book they said they only had a reso for 5 but when I called they put us in for 6:30.

Always enjoy Cibo. The food is consistently great and the service is always wonderful. We had a group of 11 and were seated in a nice private room. And if you go on a night when they have specials you can’t beat the price.

Saturday November 11 I took my girlfriend there as a date night. As her and I are really big foodies and both currerntly cook as a living. The reviews we have heard about Cibo made us extremely thrilled to come for a dining experience on our rare night off. The two of us shared some appetizers and got the mushroom pizza. We got the arincini, which was absolutely scrumptious. We got the meat balls, which were good in flavour, yet the presentation looked like ground meat rather than actually meat balls. We ordered the mushroom pizza add chicken as our main. The first bite made us regret that decision, the chicken was quite dry and bland. The mushrooms needed some lovings before being put on the pizza. The dough was super soggy, undercooked and not seasoned . We were really excited to try out Cibo but our first experience made us not want us to return.

Cibo is a great spot for many occasions. I had my b-day there more than once and each time the service and experience were excellent. In the summer the patio is one of the best on 17th Ave. They also have specials each day of the week indicating that the owners understand the fact that money is tight in Calgary at the moment. I would recommend it for an intimate drink, catching that game or getting together with a large group of friends. Great atmosphere.

Our experience was mixed. The staff was exceptional, but we thought the food was just okay. We chose this restaurant because of its high ratings, but our meals certainly didn't stack up to the expectation. We ordered a salad we did not like, and the staff did not charge us for the salad. They did that without us even asking. The ravioli was good, the rigatoni was marginal. Maybe we just hit it on a bad night. Kudos to the staff.

Cibo was great! I went for a birthday dinner, and the food was fantastic. Our server was also very prompt and we were all pleased. It was quiet - more quiet than I thought it would be - but it was still very good. I loved the interior.

Awful service. Waited 45 minutes for food to come. Once the food hit the table it was cold, and the server didn't do a quality check until 15 min after the food arrived. My friends and I were there for almost three hours and saw our server 3 times, two of which we had to flag her down. I was given a drink with a bunch little food chunks in it. I am pregnant and asked our server what virgin drinks they had to which she replied we only have a cranberry and soda.. only to flip the menu over to find a larger list of no alcoholic beverages. I spoke with a manager about our food running late & she mentioned that the kitchen was having issues. Had my friends, and I known that by having either the server or a manager touch our table we wouldn't have been so upset. Not to mention we also asked our server at the 30 minute mark how much longer food was going to be. She said she would check then never came back to speak with us. She seemed a little more concerned about polishing cutlery than tending to her tables. Not to mention we were late to our plans due to the delayed service. Not somewhere I would recommend.. fairly disappointed.

Came for dinner and was disappointed. Food was not what we expected. We indicated to our waitress that we don’t want bacon bits on our salad and when it came out, another waitress delivered it and said it wasn’t bacon it was actually lamb bits!!!?! It turned out to be capers! The pizza we ordered was soggy and not appetizing at all.
