Overpriced for the amount of food you got. Food was very tasty and good overall. Too noisy. Very hard to even visit due to noise level.

We love taking our family to CIBO. The food is always great and the value, especially on a Sunday is fantastic.

Cibo is perfect for everyday dining and if you want something that’s always reliably good. Food is always fresh and enticing and easy on the wallet and service is always attentive and friendly. Their daily specials are also pretty hard to beat.

Food was amazing! Slightly different menu from a previous time we had been to Cibo in 17th. Service was mediocre just in pace and attentiveness to our table.

Superb pizza. Decent service. It was hard to hear at some points because of a very noisy large table next to us.

There were 5 of us friends getting together for this meal. The food was great and at a fair price point but out server was terrible. Didn’t clear our plates until we asked her to, didn’t bring cream or sugar for our coffees until we asked, etc, and generally had a very grumpy demeanour. I’d go again, but I’d be crossing my fingers for another person to show up at my table.

Birthday celebration for our daughter. Service for food and table was extremely slow. Food came out staggered with children receiving their meal at least 15 minutes prior to adults receiving entrees. Also very loud acoustically despite restaurant being half full. Overall poor experience.

Great service, good food for price point, but SOO loud. That would be the only reason I wouldn’t go back, it was very hard to dine in a larger group (8 ppl).

Pleasant time celebrating my birthday at Cibo. The service and food was great. However when it's time to pay, I'm surprised of how big the bill was. I mainly ordered pizzas knowing that 5$/pizza happy hour and 5 pasta dishes...I don't think they put this into account. SO be careful, they may just charge you full price for them 5$ pizzza deals.

We attended for an Anniversary. I am an above average cook. We liked our table and location. The quality of the ingredients, food and flavours were really great. The service was on point with perfect timing. The prices were reasonable. However, at the price point we would have liked more gnocchi as my only small knock (delicious but smallish for a main or sharing). The pizza was delicious and best I have had in a long while. The Calgary and goat cheese dip was also terrific. The ambience was nice and casual but in a good way. We enjoyed the beer and drink special. All in all we are definitely coming back.

Pizza was great! However our server was extremely slow. A dinner that should have been only an hour turned into 2 and half due to waiting around for our server! Good thing my friend and I had lots to catch up on

Was not super happy with our meal tonight. We come to cibo lots with our family and the last few times have been very disappointing, the pizza was not good tonight definitely over cooked and the pear pizza was very bland tasting. The Cesar salad was soggy and warm like it had been sitting out for while under a lamp or something I wish it would have been better we keep going back to give it a second third fourth chance and it’s gone way down hill.

The pizza was delicious, especially the crust. I highly recommend the Bruschetta. The pizza is bit expensive but we went on Sunday for $12 dollar pizza and $5 dollar beers which was great. It was a bit noisy, but overall a good experience.

Espresso machine broken. But didn’t let us know until 15 mins after waitress took drink order. Long wait. Then waitress forgot to enter our dinner order and gave a lot of contradictory excuses about why there was a delay. At least three tables who were seated after us were getting their food - that should a be a red flag for the waitress. Took over one hour to get our dinner. They didn’t even offer to comp anything on our bill. Mistakes happen but be upfront about the reason and offer to comp the bill.

Cibo was recommended to us by friends and we gladly took their advice. Imagine our extreme disappointment when the food arrived and it was poor at best. I had the Linguine with Clams and the flavour was that of a can of tomatoes poured over the pasta with very little if any layer of seasoning. bad to worse, my son's penne was a poor visual presentation and similarly to my choice, it had no flavour and was runny with liquid and he could not even finish the plate. My wife had the caesar salad and once again she described the dressing as weak. The overall theme here is that the food had little to no tastebud appeal. To make matters worse, the meal came to just over $98, which if the meal was exceptional would not be an issue but the price left an even worse taste in our mouths. I feel like I wasted my time and money I can sorely afford but I wanted to treat my family to a nice night out, I hope you can make this right.

Service was just ‘off’. Asked for water...didn’t get it. Asked for ice bucket for our wine...didn’t get it. Took a long time to be acknowledged when we first sat down. Wasn’t bad, but someway ‘off’.

Went out for a lunch date, everything was great aside from the pork pate. Had heard good reviews about it so assuming it was just a one off. Our server was absolutely amazing and we will definitely be back!
