    Dined with friends and we all found our meals to be okay but nothing special. Veal milanese didn't have the crisp texture that it should have, blackened fish was mushy and seafood trilogy unremarkable. Service was fine. Nice ambience and friendly staff.

    We've been regulars at ViBo for a long time. The food is always up to the same high standard as is the service. We do find the music and acoustics to be too loud for comfortable conversation but that is, unfortunately, the standard situation everywhere this side of the Atlantic.

    We were delighted with the ambiance and service. The menu is varied and reasonable priced. Our choices included the grilled octopus and the nights special crab cakes. Both dishes were spoilt by an overpowering lemon dressing. The lasagna bolognese was excellent.

    The flavour and quality of the food were excellent. There was no shrinkage of portions like most restaurants. There were eight of us and Andrew, our waiter, was fabulous. Efficient, patient, and attentive, working well with those who assisted him. The gentleman playing the piano was an added bonus for a perfect ambience.

    Overall it was good and yes I’ll definitely return. I just did not like my meal. It’s was the Mediterranean Seabass with hand tear romaine and radicchio leaves. Seabass was not seasoned well for my palate. Another person ordered the seafood linguine. While it tasted good it lacked some seafood that you will find in this dish. I had the same at Via Allegro Ristorante and the presentation alone was just simple divine. You couldn’t help but dig into the dish, large shrimp, scallops, mussels! It was mouthwatering.

    Vibo RestaurantResponded on September 7, 2022Thank you for your feedback in regards to your lunch with us. Yes our Linguine alla Marinara does contain Mussels Clams, Calamari and shrimp as noted on our menu. We do as well try to keep our pricing at lunch as accessible as possible. We are able to offer larger shrimp as well! Just ask Thanks and see you soon at ViBo!

    Hi My family and I like to come to Vibo and have had take-out a few times during the Pandemic. We like the food, the ambiance and have always found the service to be attentive. We live in the neighbourhood and feel that Vibo is probably our favourite local restaurant. Last night, unfortunately, was an exception. We arrived at the outdoor patio just at our 8:30 reservation and were met by a server who wasn't very welcoming and appeared disturbed by our arrival. She said we didn't have a reservation outside when in fact we did. The restaurant was significantly understaffed which affected wait times for cocktails, bread and food. Our server forgot to tell us the specials and we had to ask what they were. Our server did his best but overall our evening was a disappointment, neither relaxing nor pleasant. I regret these negative comments but when I saw your email asking for feedback, I thought we should reply. Sincerely, Elaine and Walter Markham 647.224.2571

    We keep going back to VIBO again and again. The staff are friendly and make a point of making guests feel welcome. As repeat diners, we are greated warmly by the owners and staff who recognize us. The patio dining area is lovely and tables are distanced enough so that you can have pleasant private conversations. Guests maintain conversations in quiet voices. The menu: every dish that I have tried is delicious and prepared perfectly. There is a good variety of dishes for everyone's tastes and diets. Pricing is reasonable. The service is excellent: guests rarely have to flag down a server to have a glass of water refilled, etc. When the weather is less obliging, the indoor dining area is very spacious and an open fireplace in the winter is very pleasant. We just keep going back !!!!!

    First of all, we ate on the patio so comments about ambiance and noise don't count! Staff were attentive and informative in describing the dishes and the daily specials. The seafood was prepared with delicate care and skill. Pasta firmness was perfect. Very extensive wine list and good value to match the meal. We will be back.

    Ambience was great but the bolognese sauce was very watery. Waiter was very courteous and The italian wine was very good. My friend really liked the gnocci alla gorgnozola so overall, I will give it a 7.5/10.
