Italian
Located on bustling Centre St North beside Lina’s Italian Market, Cibo opened its doors on June 6th 2018 in a building with a long history of Italian restaurants and is the little sister to their second location on 17th Avenue. Apart of the local Creative Restaurants group which has been operating in Calgary for over 20 years, there is no doubt we know Italian with Bonterra Trattoria, Posto Pizzeria and Bar and Lina’s Italian market in the family.

Our menu is made to share because that’s how we feel food is served best. Out chef combines traditional Italian methods with his own innovation to creative simple, delicious dishes created from the best local ingredients possible.

So come join us! Eat a little, eat a lot, but above all enjoy!

Only difference between scopa and the new cibo is the sign. The cheap pasta night is not as advertised not half price and ordered the lasagna which arrived dry and old mentioned to the server who we had to flag down no concern. Stopped going there for these reasons and will not return again.

The staff and service were excellent. The atmosphere was nice. It had a good vibe. However their chairs are awful. They are metal with zero cushion. We had planned to stay for the whole evening but left right after we ate because we were so uncomfortable which is too bad. I had lasagna and found it to have very little flavour. It was a good portion size however would not order it again. My friend had the truffle fries and calamari and she really liked them. I would try again and order something different but won’t because of the seating.

Food was good but not great. I had Merluzo. The cod was good but not great. I have had better in other restaurants many times. The sun dried tomatoes were tasty but the green peas were tasteless. I liked the saffron broth though it made the risotto too wet. I would not order it again. My wife had the lasagna. The edge of the dish served was covered by charred sauce. There was very little cheese. The dish more resembled meat loaf than lasagna. She would not order that dish again. Overall, the price for these dishes was too high for the quality provided. This was our first visit to CIBO, and our last.

Enjoyed the evening - great food, wine & service and no rush to leave. I would definitely go back. Also the price is right - love the ideas of having specials everyday of the week. Relaxed environment.

Thank you for a nice relaxing, good priced evening.!

Worst service ever received for a empty restaraunt. Servers standing around the bar chatting while paying no attention to the only two tables in the restaraunt. Had to manually call the server over multiple times.

Clam linguine had too much sand in it. When we paid with a gift card they took off two dollars more than they were supposed to. Pasta is not great. I would only get pizza if I go back there again.

Overall a good meal. Really enjoyed the arancini, the Caesar salad and the basil pizza. Wasn’t a fan of the orecchiette especially, just couldn’t taste the squash at all, lost in the olive and the spice of the sausage (which also overwhelmed the lamb). Everything said the pizzas were all $11 but it wasn’t reflected on the bill.

We were sad to see Scopa go but Cibo has done the location proud but keeping it Italian with all the modern cuisine you expect from Cibo. We didn’t notice the vegan menu like Via Cibo has bit as a vegetarian it had lots to offer. Our carnivores were also very happy with their meals. We went at Xmas and it was beautifully decorated.

We typically frequent the 17th Avenue location as such expected the same quality of food & atmosphere but we were disappointed as it certainly did not taste the same. The crust on pizza was different. My preschooler said he needed fresh cheese and pizza is his favorite food. He's quite particular but beyond that the entire group of 5 shared his sentiments. We will return to our usual location next time. That being said, our server was very hospitable and we appreciated that!

Service and ambience was good but the food was not up to par. The concept of the meal was good but it was poorly put into practice. Two of us attended and each had a different pasta. My red sauce was very runny and the other meal the pasta was cold. Deserts looked good but the warm apple crisp with ice cream but room temperature at best.

The Caesar salad was excellent. The lasagne was mediocre. All the dishes were good proportions.
The service was ok and could be improved with a little training. It was just the little things - she took away our plates without asking if we were finished, didn’t have a clue about the house wine “one is white and the other is red”, didn’t ask if we wanted coffee or dessert, etc.
When the restaurant was Scopa I always had good food and service so maybe Cibo will improve. I would go back and give it another try.

Always a great casual place to meet and enjoy a meal with friends. Went there often under the Sugo name, and CIBO is equally good. This past meal we were seated immediately but waited for about ten minutes before anyone came back to our table with menus or water etc. That was odd and unfortunate. Happily it was not our first visit there so we disn’t Let that “blip” in service spoil it for us. The food was prompt and excellent as always! Thanks!!

Food was exceptionally delicious! Service was not the best. We have party of 8 and we understand 18% gratuity is mandatory. We didn’t know the gratuity was added to the bill. The waitress did not mention it to us and we paid on top extra 20% tips which is in total 38% gratuity. The waitress took the bill and did not give us the copy of the receipt at all until we asked. She only gave us the receipt and kept the bill. When we got home we checked and found out we paid 38% gratuity for a not so good service. Oh well! Be careful next time!
