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

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.

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.
