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

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 - 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.

Very disappointing, lunch menu very limited. Arrived a few minutes before 11:30 told to come back as staff was just setting up. This raised flags but because my friend from Mexico was to meet me there, I did not have time to contact her to make other arrangements so we persevered and shared the soup and a horrible thin crust pizza which was barely edible. Will not return to this place for sure.

to start our meal, chef Caputo sent over a glass of prosecco, thats a great way to start a meal, our riccotta appetizer was fantastic, we also shared the halibut and the steak entree, both equally amazing. our server checked in on us just enough, and the doughnuts to finish were delightfully fluffy. my entire experience was amazing, i will be back next time i am in town for sure!!!
Not what I was expecting
I have been to Italy and I see that they are trying to create a true Italian environment. Sorry, maybe I don't appreciate fine dining anymore, but I found the prices significantly above average and the portions relatively small. Good variety of higher end items, but overall it is not a place I would recommend to someone else.

My wife and I recently had a wonderful evening at CIBO Bistro. The food was outstanding as was the service. We would both heartily recommend CIBO Bistro to all of our friends and we intend to return soon. It was a superb experience!
First timer - Taste doesn't match its Price
My friend and I chose this restaurant because we wanted to try good Italian food and apparently the Cibo Restaurant ranked amongst the top in the city. We ordered "Salumi", "Fedelini alle Vongole", "Agnolotti", Chocolate Cake, 2 glasses of red (2009 Shardana Valli Di Porto Pino IGT) , and a special gelato of that evening. None of the dishes are outstanding to us. The clams in the Fedelini alle Vongole were tiny and the sphagetti was dry. The waitress was very friendly and polite. But for the price and the taste of the food, my friend and I decided that we will not go back for the second time. If you like delicious food and don't mind paying a little more, I would totally recommend "Rdg Road" over this restaurant.

Overall, Cibo Bistro was disappointing. The service was good at first but quickly dropped off until it was time for the bill. The pasta was unpalatable due to being too heavy on the salt and pepper. I couldn't tell if it was the salt or pepper that was burning my lips and throat. My friends enjoyed their steaks and bruschetta though. We will not be back due to our negative experience; however, do recommend trying non pasta dishes.
