We love Cibo Yorkville. Always so accomodating to us. We tend to come early so we can sit at the bar before dinner and we never have a problem with that. The bar staff is all so helpful and friendly. Great selections of wines and drinks. Love the seating at the bar~ordered a charcuterie with nice selection of meats/cheeses/fruits. Well priced. Had dinner at a table by the kitchen which is always fun to watch and see the hustle and bustle. Energetic atmosphere. Our server was great and I'm sorry I can't remember his name. Their bread is so delicious. Ordered two pasta dishes. Both were quite good. The portions are smaller which may bother some diners, but to us, that is so much better than being served these huge uneatable portions of food. Complimentary glass of wine from our favorite bartender/manager Jeremy~ always makes us feel special. The whole atmosphere is perfect. Can't wait for our next trip to Toronto to come to Cibo again!

Me and my friends went to CIBO for a Christmas dinner and our time was amazing! We had wonderful food and great drinks and the service was attentive and quick! Would definitely go back and recommend! One of my friends was gluten free and they were able to accommodate for that and offered all of their pastas gluten free!

Disappointed that they had no romaine lettuce for the Caesar salad. Recall was done at east a week ago. My wife and bnb I both had soup - Straciatelle and Minestrone. Both were bland and the veggies in the minestrone were soggy. My seafood pasta did not have any calamari or scallops at all. My wife's pizza was also bland...as though they forgot the sauce. No one asked us how our meal was at the end of the night. Our server was pleasant and service was quick. The wine girl was not very helpful as she recommended wine that was not available. A sampling of wine would have been helpful. Dessert was good but tiramisu was very heavy.

The service was brutal. Our server offered us water and didn’t come back for 35 minutes later for our order. I asked her, “Why did you leave us for so long?” She replied, “I wanted to give you time to decide.” Anyway a pathetic answer if you ask me. At the end of the meal, it was a painful process to get our bill.

Our server Rachael was exceptional. She was attentive but not overbearing. She never once made us feel like she wanted to have us leave so she could flip the table to the next guests. Rachael was friendly and sincere ... not falsely trying to be 'our best friend'. And yes the food was delicious and brought in a very timely fashion.

I was really excited to eat here. When I got there, the hostess was on the phone. She didn't acknowledge that I was standing there or waiting, just carried on on her call. After she finished, she asked for my reservation name and took us to a table. It would have been nice if she at least acknowledged that I was standing there waiting, or told me that she'd be with me as soon as she can. I don't think the food is also worth the price. Won't be back.

We attended Cibo Wine Bar - Yorkville, for a, Special, Birthday Celebration. We have never dined there before but will many times in the future. The Staff were very, friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. We had a reservation and arrived approximately an hour early. The attendant advised us that she could seat us immediately or we could go to the bar, have something to drink, and return to her when we were ready to be seated. The food was delicious, plentiful and reasonably priced.

I was extremely disappointed with Cibo. Reading the reviews I invited 2 guests from out of Province confident we would enjoy our food. Having all of us been to Italy and seeing the Italian seal on the website I assumed we were in for a treat. Boy was I wrong. Having worked in fine dinning establishments myself such as Auberge du Pommier and my friend being the manager of Park distillery in Banff we concluded the food worse than chains like Cara. Never have I ever been so disappointed and embarrassed. The sauce on the caneloni tasted like it was from a can. No way was that fresh. The "fresh" pasta might have been fresh at one point but the food was made at least 24 hrs before it was served. The food was reheated, tasteless (we all had to add salt), and poorly plated. I won't even get into the spag and meatballs. They were tiny and looked like the frozen meatballs from m&m's. We suffered through our mains and ordered dessert which were assured were authentic. I'm not sure who claims those cannoli were authentic but I guarantee any Italian would be insulted having that served to them. I've never written a review so this shows you how disappointed and embarrassed I was. The only good thing I can say was the ambiance was nice and so was the imported wine. I have no problem spending 250$ on good food. None of us finished our food, we all left hungry, and was I offered the food again someone would have to pay me to eat it.

Food was pretty great but was ruined by our waitress. She was incredibly rude which is not something you would expect to find at this kind of restaurant. Truly put a damper on the evening. She was complaining about splitting our bill which she said would take her a lot of time but instead of saying this kindly, there was a lot of attitude, it was quite shocking actually.

There were four of us all together and we all had pasta. Three of the pastas were tomato based and were very bland. I have the lobster ravioli which I did not finish and sent back. It was probably frozen and then cooked as the interior texture was leaky and watery. I entire dish seemed somewhat watery.

Very loud, couldn’t hear my girlfriend sitting across from me. Food was very mediocre, not worth the price at all. I got the pollo mattone and the chicken was very dry. My girlfriend got pizza and the sauce was too sweet. Wine list is substantive, but overall the quality does not match the price point. Wish I had chosen somewhere else.
