Valentines Day. Many restaurants overbook leaving you waiting at the bar for 30 min before seating. Vino managed their reservations perfectly and provided a very enjoyable evening.

An Italian restaurant, popular amongst locals. Food and service was good, not great but local.
It was Valentine’s Day with a limited menu which was changed out after we were presented with it as some items weren’t available. If we’re in the mood for Italian and don’t want to go far, this place is a repeat.

Excellent meal from start to finish. I had a tasty chicken entree and my husband had pork tenderloin, both cocked perfectly. The desserts (sticky toffee pudding and olive cake with pistachio) were both exquisite, followed by the best Americano coffee I've every had. Professional, attentive and friendly service. The restaurant is not too loud, which makes it perfect for conversation. A superb experience!

We tried Vibo for the first time during Winterlicious and found the menu to have a nice selection. We were celebrating a birthday, our party of 4, all selected something different so we could taste the other options. They were all equally delicious. Although the dessert menu was a bit lacking, if you had the Sticky toffee date pudding, would would never have noticed.

The staff were very attentive and very friendly.

Horrendous experience! Had a reservation for 6:00pm and we received our appetizers after 6:50 and our entrees after 7:30... The restaurant blamed the delay on a "massive" take-out order. Never stepping foot in this restaurant again.

Our lunch was delicious. I found the Branzino with salad to be a perfect luncheon selection. Everyone enjoyed their meal, from the excellent pasta dishes to the calamari. The bruschetta was the perfect touch to begin the meal.

Eight of us got together for dinner and everyone really enjoyed their meal starting with the appetizers and ending with delicious desserts. The veal picatta was very good as well as fish(grouper) and pasta dishes. I really enjoyed the sticky toffee pudding for dessert. The ambience was very relaxing and noise level was perfect. It was a great evening!

We had to wait 2 hours for our main course! The waitress didn't even come to say sorry or that it would be a wait! They should have given us an appetizer since we waited for 2 hours. I understand it was very busy but they should have done something since we had to wait 2 hours!

I had occasion to meet with friends for lunch. I had not seen them for 20 years. One lives in New York while the other lives in Palgrave. They asked me to arrange lunch and as an Etobicoke resident, I did not hesitate to recommend we meet at Vibo.
The food, service, ambiance and comfort is superior at this restaurant. I would highly recommend Vibo for any occasion. Very consistent.

Overall food was just fair. went for my wife's birthday and had not seen the restaurant after renovation......overall we generally like the restaurant. This time however was pretty average for the price. Waited 30 minutes for waiter to approach us for drinks. Food came fairly quickly after ordered. Son's $47. steak was under-cooked. My wife thought her Risotto was just ok.
The menu was pretty much the same after the renovation, we were hoping for a bit of new options. Not sure what they were going for in the renovated interior. It's a bit of a mish mash of different decorating. So overall for a $400. dinner, the result was pretty average.

It was my Dad's special 70th Birthday dinner. He is hard of hearing, so I need someplace special but without alot of noise, so we could all talk. The round table was perfect. The meal was great. We had a really lovely evening. Thank you.
