About Cibo Bistro
“Cibo" (pronounced CHEE-bo) means food in Italian, and that’s what this Italian Bistro is all about. We like to keep the menu simple, tasty, and focused, using fresh local ingredients. Cure our own meats, make our own cheese and hand roll our pasta. We try to make almost everything in house with a menu that changes seasonally.

Cibo Bistro Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant is very nice and has a good ambient atmosphere. The service is excellent with the waitress able to explain everything about the various menu items. The drinks are good and the meal came in a timely manner. The food was excellent with the pricing at bit on the higher end of the scale. Very good place to celebrate special occassions or to have an intimate meal with your friend or family.
We have been going to Cibo since it opened, more than five years ago, and it has always exceeded our expectations. The food is always amazing and the menu changes enough so that going there is always a new culinary adventure. the atmosphere is cozy and welcoming and the service attentive but not pushy or hovering. It continues to be our favourite restaurant in Edmonton.
I have been to Cibo several times and once in awhile the food seems to slightly miss the mark to keep it at the top of our list. This visit happened to be one of those times. The Insalata was excellent while one of our favourites, the Arancini was a little dry. We also had he Fedelini Nero which was a little too "fishy" for us but may appeal to other people. The special of the day was a spicy Garganelli which I couldn't make my mind up about as there were so many flavours it was almost overwhelming. I will always go back as it is still in my top ten for Edmonton dining.
From start to finish the bistro was amazing. We had the chefs tasting menu and we were both delighted with the quality and perfect quantity of food. After our 5 courses, not counting the delicious amuse bouche and the refreshing blood orange sorbet pallet cleanser, we left full without being uncomfortable.
The pasta was impeccably made and perfectly al-dente, my favorite was the ravioli filled with creamy blue cheese and drizzled with 35 year old balsamic. So simple but the flavor was so complex. My husband favored the kick of the hand rolled pasta with a tomato sauce with chili and (forgive me if it's the wrong meat for by this time I was on sensory overload and was only concentrating on the tastes rather then sounds) pulled pork.
We also choose to go with a wine pairing, each and every wine was a delight, my only regret was that I didn't get the name of each of the wines. My favorite was the last wine, a dessert, sparkling rose. It was fresh and sweet but light and crisp. It felt like a holiday.
Suffice to say we were in heaven and very very satisfied.
We will absolutely go no back and have already recommended the restaurant to many of our friends and family.
First time at Cibo and had a most delicious meal. The charred octopus starter was amazing - incredibly tender and flavourful. The entree portions were on the small and expensive side, but both were beautifully rendered and presented. One came accompanied with succulent cactus pear slices, prompting us to search for these at the grocery store the next day. Also, had a delightful server who was very knowledgeable about the menu and the restaurant in general. Will definitely come back. Want very much to try other selections on the menu.
Fabulous food and great service. Have been there before and will go again but our last dinner went poorly. Even with a reservation we were seated next to a group of very loud and crude men. They did nothing about it, even after we pointed it out to the server. Ambiance was worst than a cheap sports bar.
Memorable dining experience. It takes a deft touch to make duck breast perfect. The halibut special was cooked just right - moist and flavourful. Service was friendly, attentive and accommodating. Our group of 4 closed the restaurant on this mid-week day - yet there was no pressure to leave.
The bruschetta 3 ways is an absolute must-try! Large portions make this a good place for groups, but couples would likely want to share to try as much as possible on the lovely menu.
The only downsides of the dining room were the small tables and drafty windows - bring a cardigan in the winter. ;)
This place continues to be my favorite Edmonton restaurant. From the moment you enter you're treated like a special guest. The service is attentive but not annoying. The options for drink are super and the food is always amazing. We've been eating there since it opened over five years ago and it continues to deliver. The menu changes with the seasons yet the favorite items remain. I can't say enough great things about Rosario & Lisa and Cibo!
Everything during our experience was nothing short of outstanding! The server(completely forget her name, Alycia maybe?) was phenomenal! She helped us by explaining every thing we asked and was very thorough in helping us choose our meal options! They had great cocktails and wine! We especially loved the breadsticks and homemade petite fours that we revived with the bill! The ravioli saltimbocca was to die for, as we're the Brussels sprouts, aranchini, and both specials we had! I can't say enough good things about this place! If we lived in town it would be a regular stop!
Lovely atmosphere, wonderful knowledgeable server, lots of wine choices and of course great food. A nice evening out in a relaxed atmosphere. You have to order sides to accompany your meal so a little more expensive then you might find elsewhere. The quality of food and service was excellent.
Overall a great night.
Cibo is amazing. From the decor to the food to the staff. Always leave with my belly full and happy and I go to see the amazing Lisa Caputo and Ashley Selig who is the most amazing server ever that makes you feel like you are at home with family.
If you have not been here, I highly recommend it.
Chef Rosario Caputo is a force to be reckoned with. His feature sandwiches and bruschetta trios blow my mind every time.
From the moment we walked in the door, we were made to feel very welcome. Our waitress was simply outstanding in every way - she obviously really likes what she does and is a real professional. The food was great, and the pace of service was just right. Overall, an excellent evening with good friends, which we will repeat soon!
