Cibo Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
We came in during Happy Hour today (around 4), expecting that pizza was $5 and appetizers/wine were $4 as indicated in the menu. No further details were given that the servings (toppings, cheese and all) during happy hour were different! Server also didn't point to clarify the lack of information or "misinformation" on the menu. It was a great time until we realized that we were paying more than 2xs the price for food that apparently wasn't in the happy hour special.
Please make sure to communicate the specials more! If the servers won't mention it, please indicate at the menu. It's hard to want to go back after that. Hope that won't be the experience for other customers.
We went for a bday dinner and after ordering our food took about an hour to come out. And not only that when the food came out it there were three ppl at the table who had to wait an additional ten min for their orders. No one was apologetic, it was just clear that they were aware the kitchen was behind. When the bill came nothing was done to help compensate the poor experience. We ordered the flourless cake and it was tiny and we got charged $9 for it. Complete rip off.
We went for a special family dinner and the food was great! Finding a place where the foodie parents and the picky kids are both happy is hard to find and we have found it with CIBO! The kids loved being able to watch the chefs make their dinner! The food runner and hostess were amazing... wishing our server had been more attentive. But overall, we were very pleased with our meals. We will be back soon!
I loved it! I went with my daughter and husband for my birthday. It was super cool inside, the food was great and came really quick. The service was also excellent. The server checked on us lots and was really nice to my 2 year old. I would definitely go back.
Decided to go to Cibo with a friend on a Sunday night. It was really busy, which was a pleasant surprise, considering the economy in Calgary. Our main meals took a bit, and I wonder if our (very pleasant server) forgot to put in the main order after our starters, or if the kitchen was just super busy. I was fine with it, the food was great, as always.
