About Cibo Bistro
Edmonton, AB T5K2X4
“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

Cibo puts out fantastic food, period. This restaurant is one of the best dining experiences in Edmonton. Located in the easy to access Oliver Square, Cibo has a menu that is creative and crafted with care. The food is delicious and exciting. The atmosphere is quite pleasant, with soft music that does not interfere with conversation. The menu is more on the expensive side, but the overall experience from the waiters and the chefs is worth every penny. I would recommend asking the servers what they recommend, your taste buds will not be disappointed. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion for any group size.

Wow! That was my favourite meal I've had at this restaurant and I've been here many times. The sable fish was the highlight and unfortunately it didn't last. It was perfectly cooked with no dry spots or under-cooked areas. The Barolo went well with everything. The Tagliatelle was Al dente. The hazelnut chocolate dessert was not too sweet and rounded it off well. It was a good way to celebrate before going back to school.

Cibo never disappoints. The food is exceptional and decidedly modern but clearly crafted by those with knowledge of authentic italian cuisine. The service and aesthetic are casual and inviting. Will absolutely make a point of coming back.

We went to Cibo for a date night, and it was perfect. We came early, shortly after they opened, and the place was very quiet and welcoming. Our server was incredibly friendly and helpful -- she wasn't afraid to laugh at herself either. The food was wonderful (forgive my lack of memory for names though): we started with the Ricotta Cakes which my wife loved, though I enjoyed them a little less. I had the lamb and she had pasta with a duck ragu -- both absolutely excellent. We finished our meal with the "donuts". Overall, excellent service and great food. Would recommend, but ensure you're willing to pay their prices (ours was ~$130 including a couple glasses of wine).

Knowledgable staff. Awesome food. Subtle and rich flavours. Did the chefs menu. Will definitely recommend and visit again. Don't expect franchise dining, this is proper traditional Italian with a little twist here and there. Pleasant atmosphere!

On my third visit to Cibo, I think it's getting even better...This was quite simply one of the best meals I have had in Edmonton. Arancini were sublime, octopus popped with flavour, tortellini in brodo was remarkable, and the lamb was succulent. Such gorgeous blending of flavours and textures in a beautiful space, with effortless service. As much as I love Corso 32, I am thinking that Cibo just may have eclipsed it in quality.

We are 4 ladies who dine together monthly. We have returned to Cibo many times. This is, in our opinion, one of the best restaurants in Edmonton. The food is always delicious from the appetizers right through to dessert. We love the arancini, we all enjoyed the feature soup (changes regularly) and the accompanying bread. We couldn't resist the bread pudding for dessert. The coffee and wine completed a wonderful dining experience. Our server, Ashley, was just perfect. Thank you to all at Cibo.

The more I go, the more I love this restaurant. Never disappointed and constantly delighted by the food and the hospitality. Chef Rosario Caputo also signed my copy of the Edmonton Cooks cookbook I picked up there last week. Thanks Chef!

This is a lovely restaurant in every way. Pricey but absolutely delicious. The polenta appetizer is, I think, the best starter I have ever had. A fish special was tasty as was my husband's beef and pasta. Service was just right. Will definitely go back for special occasions or just for a glass of wine and that polenta!

I had high hopes for this place. We each ordered the pasta dish and it was lack luster. The pasta was underdone, the portions were small and the sauce was just okay. We also tried the chocolate cake; which was dry. Would not come back since we drove out of our way to come here from downtown core. Even though it was a 9 min ride, I would have rather walked across the street from my office for food.

The food did not meet out expectations. When you say a dish has truffle in the recipe it should be evident in the flavour. Every dish including the dessert was missing the flavour of the key ingredient. Disappointing

It was absolutely amazing as usual. One of my favourite places in Edmonton. I like how if we had questions they would take the time to explain what was in the dish etc. Great recommendations for wine/food pairings as well.

Went for our daughter's 21st birthday. We had a later reservation on a Tuesday evening so the restaurant was not busy. The food as always was delicious, but we found that this particular night the food took an inordinate length of time to come out after ordering. This has not been our experience on past visits, and since the restaurant was only about one-quarter full it was not expected. Since we had ordered multiple courses it made for a very long weeknight meal.

The food was very good and nice temperature. My only complaints are that the lights were so dim for the size of writing I could not read the menu and there was a very large group right beside our small intimate table so we couldn't hear each other (and we have perfect hearing and vision). Server was excellent and the Old Fashioned that my husband had was one of the best he has ever had.

We had read all the reviews so we knew it would be amazing and a bit expensive. It was both. The food and service were outstanding. We had a great waiter who was patient and knowledgeable. We had a main each and shared an anti pasti and a side. We also had a couple glasses of very good wine. All in all a very relaxing 2 hours and left very satisfied. Not main stream prices but also not main stream food. A touch above for sure.

We had a family night out at Cibo Bistro in Edmonton and the food was delicious and memorable. The space is pleasant, the service was attentive, and we will definitely be back. All courses were tasty, but the pasta fundata and wild boar tagliatelli were outstanding.
