Another great dining experience here at Cibo wine bar! We came for brunch over the weekend and it was fantastic, so decided to try out the restaurant with the regular menu and it did not disappoint! Everything came out hot and fresh, and our server went above and beyond to make sure we had a good time. We will be back!

So good. Totally worth the groupon price. The food is delicious. I just always wonder what they do with all the left over food. There’s always so much. But the quality of their food is amazing. So good!

Lots of brunch in the city that you should try before stopping here; the Buffett is scattered and confusing, nothing is labeled. Sodas not refills which we were never informed until the bill came. And we basically sat with dirty dishes most of the time. We were also seated in front of a over sized window with the sun shining n us which was like sitting and eating in sauna - to imagine no blinds ??? Not a happy start to our Sunday will not return nor recommend.

The brunch items had no names or ingredients listed. You had to guess what you were eating. The Sunday brunch buffet is not a good choice for anyone with any dietary restrictions. The staff were extremely busy and unavailable to answer any questions. The serving utensils for the buffet were short and fell back into the food after hands had touched them. There was no hand sanitizer anywhere. An 18% gratuity was automatically charged (a Groupon was used).

The servers were frequenting our table, made us feel rushed. We were working our way slowly through food but there was a feeling of being rushed. Appreciate prompt service but this was a bit over the top.
But otherwise loved Cibo

The restaurant has a really neat feel to it. We asked our server for recommendations for appetizer and our dinners and she definitely gave great suggestions. Everything was amazing. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go back again when in the area.

Everything was good but the food. A few people ordered the carbonara and it was oily, the sauce had separated and the eggs were scrambled. Really not great.

Appetizers and drinks were good as was server and ambiance.

The food was nothing special, the pizza was sort of like fast food pizza, the service was terrible. Wouldn't recommend especially since there are so many better Italian places in the city!

Requested a table that was not squeezed in between 2 tables and what did we get, a table squeezed in between 2 tables. The restaurant was not full yet so the hostess basically didn’t read the notes.

Has the mozzarella di bufala pizza. Was very watery. So watery when I took the leftover home in the cardboard box, it literally stuck to the box. I had to get a knife to cut the bottom out.

Other than than, service and food is pretty decent. Prices are average so I go here from time to time. Not special but nothing horrible.

I went there for date anniversary, and we really loved the place. I had seafood risotto and my husband ordered lasanha. Both were good! My husband loved the lasanha. For desert, I recommend the lime cheesecake, it was perfect.
The staff was also good! We will be back, for sure.

We got a groupon for brunch. The waitress wasnt very attentive at all. I showed her the groupon from the beginning and she said they take it at the end. At the end she brings the regular bill anyways. It took some time to get the groupon bill and there was a mandatory 18% gratuity attached. Unless there's a party of 6 or more, that shouldn't be mandatory... there was 2 of us, and the service wasnt worth 18%

If you are looking for a good Italian place in king west, this would be a good choice. Patrons are kind of pretentious and snobby though. Lots of millenial posers. But that's a king west thing not a Cibo thing.

Having said this, if you are a gen x or gen z looking for good Italian, I would recommend this place for the food. Avoid if you want to enjoy the evening without having to hear conversations/ see millenials bragging about how cool their lives are, all the while wearing the same club Monaco or H and M outfits.

Too dark. Pizza was terrible. Coffee brought to me was dripping on my pants and when I asked for napkins it was given to me with attitude. And how could they possibly charge 18% gratuity on the entire bill automatically and ask for tip on top? Seriously?

Service was confused. We were lost in the shuffle. After waiting at the bar for out able we were told that we couldn’t transfer our bar bill to our table. After having to hunt down someone to settle our bar tab with we were seated. The first person to serve us opened up with “Did you pay for that already?” Instead of making the patrons needs first, it was all about $ and the staff’s needs. Food was good but we felt like cattle being processed.

Took my wife to Cibo (King st.) to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our overall experience was amazing. The ambience along with the decor and setup of the restaurant was beautiful. Loved the little details. In addition, the service we received from our server, Devahira, was phenomenal. She was not only helpful but also very personable. She attended to us throughout the night without making us feel as though she was hovering over us. On top of all that, the food came out quickly and with great quality!

Looking forward to our next visit.

Great place, I would come again. We dined outside because it was such a beautiful night. Next time I would like to be inside to experience the true vibe and ambiance. It was busy and buzzing when we walked thru the inside. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. we dined on a Tuesday night. Will be back for sure! Grazie

We loved our evening at Cibo. The sommelier was very helpful and we ended up with a fantastic bottle! The food balanced the comfort-food feel of great Italian with a slight twist of modern to give it all a little extra excitement. The service was solid, even though the place was absolutely packed.

Our experience at Cibo was phenomenal. The wait staff created a friendly, classy atmosphere, that made for a great date night highlighted by bold, fresh pasta dishes. The carbonara and paradelle were among the best we have experienced.

Service do not pay attention to you, takes longer to order. Food is still okay, just make sure to be specific about what you want.
