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.
* Due to the popularity of our weekends, parties of 4 or less are requested to limit their stay to 2 hours in courtesy of reservations booked after them, thank you in advance *

Cibo Bistro Ratings and Reviews

The meal started out great with recommendations on wine and a great cheese platter and olives. We were very excited for the pasta special - squash-stuff ravioli in sage butter sauce. I must say we were extremely disappointed. The dish lacked balance and I couldn't decide whether the ravioli was supposed to be dinner or dessert. The pumpkin spices were overwhelming and the squash tasted overcooked/burnt. The saje butter sauce got lost in the overpowering ravioli stuffing. With so many great cheese platters in Edmonton, this one will not bring me back to Cibo.

My husband and I took our daughter to Cibo Bistro to celebrate her work promotion. We've all been there before & thoroughly enjoyed it and this time was no different. The food, service, and ambiance were all excellent. We were there for a late lunch (1:00 p.m.) and had the whole place to ourselves. I hope that's because it was after the usual lunch time. Cibo is a bit pricey, but worth it for the quality of the food. Our daughter has spent quite a bit of time in Italy and she said that the pizza tasted exactly like those she had over there. The service, especially, deserves mention; the young woman who served us was friendly, knowledgeable, and most helpful. I would (and have) recommend Cibo Bistro to anyone looking for a wonderful dining experience.

We went to Cibo Bistro for the first time this past weekend and were quite disappointed. The food was subpar. My husband ordered a medium steak, which came out well down with no pink whatsoever, and I had arctic Char, which had very little flavour. We were so disappointed that we actually went elsewhere for dessert. Our waitress did apologize for the error with the streak and gave us a discount on our bill, but we will still not come back again.

I think we expected more out of CIBO Bistro when we went for our anniversary dinner, as all the reviews I read online were mostly lunch reviews and I now understand why. The portion size for dinner were very small for how much it cost. The service was great except I wish we could of got a better table, when we arrived another two top table by the window was "Reserved", so we ended up sitting right by the bar. Overall good service and food but not great value.

Loved the food. Absolutely hated the cutlery. Hurt my hands and wrists to use. If ever I return will actually bring my own knives and forks.
I have dined all over the world and never had to complain about cutlery before

You are made welcome and they stage your dining to make it enjoyable and not rushed. Excellent food and service and the portion sizes are great. We made a meal of the antipasti selections and the daily specials were a hit. Ricotta and spinach stuffed squash blossoms in tempura batter with tomato ragu and a perfectly executed angliotti. Bruschetta was refreshing in that not a tomato or raw onion in sight...loved the crispy pork belly with apple and the two cheese offerings with garden vegetables. Finished off with a tasty arugula salad with Regianno. Definitely go back when in Edmonton again. Have already suggested friends check it out.

The menu had something for all members of the party. The wine list was excellent and complemented the menu entrees. The service was excellent, attentive (but not too attentive) and their knowledge of ingredients was good.
Will be going back and will recommend it to my friends.

I have not been to Cibo since last summer, and was not disappointed with my expectations. The server was spot on with recommendations as to food and dishes appropriate for sharing. The wine list was extensive enough to cover every pallet and price range. We started out with the grilled octopus: crunchy, grilled to perfection. Next came our mains: arctic char and the rib-eye. Both were amazing, and you could cut the beef with a fork. You can tell the staff take a great deal of pride in their establishment, wanting to treat their diners as personal guests. We finished with the lemon "doughnuts", which were light and airy. Definitely good for sharing. This was a dining experience I will not soon forget.

I went for the expensive option. It was the 5 course chef's choice. The choices were excellent and paired with my smooth and grassy Super Tuscan really well. The highlight was the perfectly cooked duck. The zucchini was another good choice. The unexpected highlight was eavesdropping on the chef's stories of a recent trip to Italy where I now have confirmation that Famoso's pizza has a too soft crust making it floppy which is not the case in Italy. I dined outdoors and it was nice and quiet.
Exceptional Service and Very Accomodating
We were so pleased with this restaurant. We arrive a little late for our reservation but they had no issue. We were sat immediately. I am Gluten intolerant. The server was very familiar and gave me my options immediately.
All food was fantastic.
Great Food, A bit pricey
We had a fantastic dinner here although I did have a few negative points. For one, we had made a reservation at off hours and they plunked us in the middle of the restaurant in front of the till. I'm not sure why since all the other tables were empty... also I felt the food was EXTREMELY pricey. We ordered the salumi as an appetizer and I was seriously not expecting the minuscule amount we got for the price. However, our service was outstanding and the food was, of course, amazing.
the options for gluten free items were limited at lunch,however the dinner menu looks very promising. the great thing is that 2 out of 3 desserts were gluten free---which was a real treat! the pana cotta was excellent. our server was great checking out the ingredients to make sure items were gluten free.
The lunch menu at Cibo is limited - prob ...
The lunch menu at Cibo is limited - probably twelve items tops - and yet, with the options available, we still have trouble making up our minds. That's what happens when every single item is delicious - so introspection is required. Do I feel like one of their hand-crafted pasta choices? Or a thin crust pizza? The baby arugula salad has virtue on its side, and so it goes... I am always dubious about kitchens that have too many options. How can what you're making in that kitchen be fresh when there are literally 50 dishes on the menu? I love Cibo for lunch because it is fresh, it is delicious, it is served promptly and it is great, great value.
