We arrived early but was able to be seated right away. The owner waited on us. She told us about the restaurant and is offerings. They cater to the date night needs of allowing you to share throughout the entire menu and will split the larger dishes. Drinks are very reasonably priced. They serve the courses much like an authentic Italian restaurant would with ample timing between to savour the flavours and converse with your date. We were treated to two truffles and dessert squares when the check came.
Very good service. Great tasty food leaving you full and satisfied.
the appetizers were good but a little small for the price (ie pollenta fritta and salad ) total =$31 and literally was 1/2 the size of comparable appies in similar restaurants.
Pasta - she had Garganelli for $27...again very good but a little pricey I had Mint Bigoli - interesting flavors again good but not a large portion so we decided to split Guance di Maiale – braised pork cheeks, parsnip puree, rainbow carrot salad, rosemary demi - $37 - it was sooo good but again...smallish portion for the price. Overall food was very good but price to portion ratio is off a little...my advise to CIBO - either increase portions or lower prices a little on appies, pastas and mains.
Dessert - she had Chocolate Cake – $12 very rich and dense but tasty. I had chef special Tiramisu canoli - this was a miss...Cannoli shell was nice and crisp and fresh but filling was basically ricotta and cream plus it was only slightly bigger than a lipstick case
Excellent food, creatively composed and presented, great wait staff, excellent wine list. Can't ask for much more.
We came for an early meal during the week. The food and wine was delicious. A very nice selection. We shared a cheese board and two of the pasta dishes. The room was a bit chilly and we needed to keep our sweaters on. Our server was fantastic. She had a very good knowledge of the menu and features. Will definitely return.
Great food, service, and atmosphere. We'll definitely be back.
Cibo, is our favourite place in Edmonton, for amazing food. We are never disappointed in the quality and freshness of their tasty menu. Lisa and her team provide the best service to complete an amazing dinning experience. We can’t say enough good things about Cibo!
The service my wife and I received was excellent. The restaurant has a nice ambiance and the food as very good. Several dishes incorporated in season produce very nicely. The cocktails were also very well done.
Overall, everything was very good... but nothing was amazing in terms of taste, or stood out in terms of creativity or plating (although I know this can be challenging with pasta). The staff were so great I almost hate to say this, but for the price you pay, just go to Corso. Similar price, unforgettable food. They do have a lovely patio though, so I’d definitely return for lunch or drinks and desserts.
Another amazing dining experience at Cibo. Lisa and Rosario never disappoint - service and food are outstanding
Fresh food, friendly service, great atmosphere! I would highly recommend for anyone who enjoys authentic Italian dishes...with creative flair.
Service was great - lovely wine reasonably priced. Excellent polenta!
Meal was excellent. Great mixing of flavours. Just the right amount of food. the Panna Cotta is superb
Cibo is a lovely little spot with great ambience and a wonderful, creative, ever-changing menu. My only complaint is the same as the other two times I've been - someone in the kitchen over-salts the food consistently. Otherwise, the fresh pasta is fantastic and I believe the ricotta is house-made, and is totally addictive. The service is also warm and friendly and very professional.
First time dining at CIBO. We would definately go again.
Cibo has become our "go - to" place in central Edmonton. We know we can count on tasty, beautifully-prepared food with excellent service. Quite simply, a great dining experience.
Great food and wonderful service. The ambiance was really nice and the location is very convenient and easy to find parking.
Service was outstanding. The place itself is very nice. The food was just ok. The antipasti were very good, the Bogoli and Raviolini were also good if a little over salted. Unfortunately the Garganelli was a bad miss with the pasta way undercooked, almost crunchy, even after both were sent back for a second attempt. We were told they are egg based and that's just how they are. Well I guess that just means we won't be back. They did take both off the bill which was appreciated. Too high of expectations maybe?
I LOVED the chocolate cake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D & zee pasta of course #ciao
The bistecca was very salty. The waiter said that that was a product of cooking down the ragu. Doesn’t happen in my house, so should not happen there. The restaurant was highly rated in the annual Avenue Magazine restaurant review. Personally, I was disappointed. Wait service was very good.
We stopped in after making a last minute reservation on the way to the hockey game on a Saturday night. We were pleasantly surprised to find parking with no hassle. Our server was gracious in pointing out which items to avoid in order to make it to the game on time. The evening was pleasant despite our rush, the pasta was tasty and we will definitely be back!
Fantastic night. The staff was so accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable. I can’t recommend this place enough.
Great food! Wonderful Service! Great dining experience!!
Overall good, pasta and roasted caulk were very good but lamb shank was disappointing bland. Great desserts, nice cocktails. Ambience is lacking, room really lacks a focus, feels a little cold and detached.
Excellent, well crafted appetizer and the perfect pasta, what else do you need? Service was very friendly and highly attentive, without being obtrusive.
Always a pleasure, always delicious. Love this place
Perfect date restaurant. Amazing food, the service is wonderful (not around you all night but around when you need something) and the establishment itself is very nice. Would recommend to anyone celebrating a special occasion or just a date night. 10/10.
This place was great. Hubby and I went for a romantic date and being pregnant I was so thrilled to learn that all of their cheese is pasteurized. Our server was so knowledgeable and very sweet and the food was excellent and prompt. I also enjoyed how there was a large fresh bouquet of flowers in the ladies restroom- just a nice touch.
The food, service, ambiance and wine were Amazing! Everything was hot, fresh and savoury. I wish I had more room to eat! Our server Dagni was knowledgeable and friendly. We were sharing plates to get the most out of the experience and they even split our food up for us. They even called our cab for us when we were leaving. It was worth every penny and I will definitely be going back!
Not much to say that I have not said a few times before - this is one of the city's most reliable restaurants - delicious, delicious food, courteous, efficient service and a beautiful room. And ample free parking. Cannot beat it. Just love this place. TT
The potato soup had an odd flavour and the beet salad was okay.
Cibo is a great restaurant. The food is very creative, prepared with distinction. The service was very knowledgeable and the ambiance is very romantic.
Great place to go for 2 for a quiet setting were you can have aconversation
Take it or Leave it. The server was awesome. The food was fine. Don't regret going but wouldn't go back.
Exceptionally superior, well prepared and pleasingly displayed servings. Server, quietly professional, and well versed on menu items. Courses well spaced. Moderately expensive.
Perfect for special occasions. Free parking.
Lovely environment. Wonderful food. We’ll definitely go again.
It was a quiet relaxed evening for my birthday! It was awesome! And the food was delish!
Overall a great experience, my friend said he Bolognese was slightly salty but otherwise it was perfect
A great meal . The house-cured salumi, copa this evening, is always excellent, and the polpo (octopus) is my six year old daughter's favorite. The hand-made garganelli with braised oxtail and sunchokes was fantastic, and the braised pork cheek secondi was also delicious. We had a nice side of beets with pistacios and ricotta, and finished off with their zeppole (limoncello mascarpone doughnuts). Service was excellent.
This is my favorite restaurant in Edmonton. I've been to Italy a number of times, and for me Cibo is on par with many of the best restaurants I'd been to in great food cities like Bologna, Modena, Terviso, Alba, Rome, and others throughout Tuscany and Piemonte.
The service was fantastic and honestly the appetizers were incredible. However the mains left something to be desired. My date had a rigatoni dish which had excellent flavour, however the pasta noodles were, as our server put it, egg based and therefore remain very aldente. It really took away from the dish.
I had a the gnocchi and short rib special, that had excellent texture but no flavour.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for post event drinks and appetizers.
Great service, great food!
Late birthday celebration
