Yes, thank you for lunch. My friend enjoyed his salad (black olives, tomato + __) and a sandwich.
Perhaps I should have ordered the same. I had carrot soup - which I did not really enjoy. It seemed to taste a little "off". Perhaps vinegar had been added. The shape of the salad bowl ensured that the dressing fell to the bottom of the bowl with the upper leaves and croutons dry.

The server was very polite and attentive.

Excellent dinning in a picturesque setting. A good varied menu, with good pizza’s, fantastic wine and local (Winnipeg Craft) beer selection.

The bruschetta was delicious and so were the drinks. The main course was inedible. Probably the worst carbonara I’ve ever had. Bland, greasy, and warm at best. Lots of sandwiches and pizzas on the menu, but nothing special. Maybe the pizzas and sanding are better...

We were very well served. I also got my fave table! The round one in the mezzanine with the window to the river! Cool! And the music wasn’t too loud, so we could actually talk and have a great meeting.

Awesome place with great ambience and great food. Our waiter, Jereme, had a great sense of humour and was attentive without being overbearing. I've been to Cibo's several times and it has never been a disappointment!

3 STRIKES . . . YOU ARE OUT !!!

Have been here a few times with good experiences, but seems to have gone down hill.

Made on-line reservation requesting a table in the raised section by the windows for a Sunday afternoon. We were seated in the lower section with no apology and told an event going on, but the section only had a couple of people and leaving; from when we arrived till we left, mostly empty. Lower section has an echo so for a person with hearing challenges was a stressor. Would have gone elsewhere if had known.

I requested a pizza from on-line menu "Open Table" but not on the menu in the restaurant. The Barletta pizza, I had before, had artichoke hearts, sundried tomato, grilled eggplant and feta. The waiter said it has been off the menu for years so I asked if they could make it for me. The waiter checked with the kitchen saying they didn't have the ingredients. Very matter of fact and left the table. No customer service to ask if they could accommodate one of the other pizzas. Isn't it the restaurant's responsibility to update the menu to an on-line site that takes reservations for them?

While eating, a waitress dragged a line of chairs to face the wall so out of use. Then dragged tables to make one long line throughout the restaurant. We commented to her it was very noisy and couldn't hear our own conversation, but she carried on with what she was doing alone. I got up at one point and lifted a table end for her. Finally, another staff person came to help her.

Very disappointed there was no respect for the customer. It was clear our business was not valued.

I have dined at Cibo numerous times and have enjoyed the food and service each time. The menu offers a great variety, however I was disappointed to see that the JennaRae sample platter was no longer available. Otherwise - awesome!

It was our first time there. We enjoyed the food, service was a tad slow considering it wasn’t very busy in there, but we weren’t in a rush. I would have preferred to sit next to a window, but we had a good experience, we will be returning.

My boyfriend and I went for his birthday dinner because we wanted to try somewhere new. The service was great! Our server was friendly and happy to recommended a few of his favourite dishes and we were very pleased with his choices. We ordered a few appitizers and shared our meals. All the dishes were awesome and the food came out nice and hot. Cocktails were tasty and I really liked the atmosphere. We will definately return to try more of the menu!

I made the reservation electronically clearing indicating both my wife's birthday and the fact that we had to head to a concert that started at 7.

Both items were not acknowledged by the server.

Also, despite asking for the bill, the server tried to upsell desert which resulted in us being LATE for the concert.

This was my first bad experience at CIBO

Atmosphere was fine, service was fine, wine was okay but the food (we both had pizzas) was really bad. Both pizzas were super undercooked and the sauce was extremely sweet (like something from a can). Toppings were scarce. Might have just been a bad day to come though as I’ve heard other people say they like it here. I’ll give it another go to see if it was just a one-off thing.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. Our server was pleasant and so friendly and answered all of our questions, she knew her stuff! Our daughter and her boyfriend made arrangements with the restaurant to bring us a bottle of wine and a card! The food was delicious, so fresh and tasty! We had a table by the window which was lovely. It was our first time to Cibo and we will definitely be back! All the staff were very friendly. Thank you!

The first time I went to Cibo the food was amazing. This last time it wasn’t as good. I had the bruschetta, and the toast was really hard and a bit burnt. It seemed like it had been sitting for awhile before being served to me. My friend said the carbonara was good, but my other friend said her steak was a bit chewy. This restaurant is really nice inside and the ambiance and service is great.
