Italian
We are a husband and wife who opened a small Italian restaurant in Oliver Village 9 years ago. Cibo means food in Italian and that has always been our focus along with friendly, knowledgeable, attentive service. We want you to feel at home while you eat delicious regional style cuisine influenced by Chef Rosario Caputo's grandmother and the couples various trips to Italy over the past 10 years. We are opening our doors to the general public after a 4 month hiatus due to COVID-19. For those of you just dining with us welcome, to our return guests and regular customers thank you for the love and support over the past 4 months. Expect a few changes as we navigate our new "normal" but we can promise our same quality ingredients, tasty hand made pastas, and friendly attentive service.

What a great time at Cibo Bistro. The food was absolutely fantastic and Jose was awesome from when he seated us to recommending dishes and drinks to wishing us a good evening when we were ready to leave. You will not be disappointed. The Arancini is fantastic. Their winter menu has a braised beef ragu with rigatoni that was unbelievable. We had plenty of other dishes that we enjoyed as well. Their Negroni and house Old Fashioned (recommended by Jose) was a great addition to our meal. I promise you’ll be beyond satisfied and will want to go again if you try Cibo Bistro. What a phenomenal locally-owned restaurant that everyone should try!

This place was amazing, and particularly comfortable during these crazy times. Save the money you’d spend going to Italy and go here a bunch of times instead.

What a lovely, special birthday dinner we enjoyed at CIBO this week. The server was excellent at explaining each of the dishes, and very attentive. Our food all arrived hot, delicious and presented wonderfully. The pace of the meal was excellent and we really enjoyed having time to talk and enjoy the wine between courses, and to let the previous course’s food settle a bit. The bistecca (steak) was sooo tender and the medley of mushrooms and demi glacé were rich and delicious. The pasta is hand-made and is cooked to perfection. Lovely selection of artisan cheeses, served with honey and house made “jam”, served with local artesian bread - as it should be! 😊 We also enjoyed the nocciola (?) chocolate/hazelnut ‘torte’ and housemate olive oil cake with housemade lemon curd which was divine! I feel as though this is a bit more homey, “approachable” version of Edmonton’s other top Italian eateries - CORSO32 and Uccelino and perhaps less costly. Overall, highly recommend. We are praying our
Edmonton community will continue to support local gems like this so that they can stay open beyond the current closures and restrictions that are plaguing so many local businesses. Thanks for a memorable evening, CIBO team!

A great meal with good service. Easily one of the best Italian restaurants in Edmonton.

However, we feel there was not enough distance between the tables to prevent Covid. I understand it is very difficult for any restaurant to remain open while reducing the number of tables they have, so fewer paying customers. However, people sitting at tables were much closer, back to back, than the recommended 6 feet apart.

We'll absolutely be back as everything service, food and beverage were excellent, but we won't return till Covid is dealt with or vaccines are available.

Impeccable and thoughtful service. Drink selections and recommendations were spot on. Appetizers were wonderful with a small hint of overcook on the octopus. Main was well prepared as the lamb fell right off the bone. Small things would have made it perfect, but for a Tuesday night and one where we needed to get out, it was ideal. We will be back

Very nice place. Good food with a real Italian taste. Service was so kind. We did really apreciate our experience, the only thing that We could be desapointed to, is about waiting time for the food. But It was not that bad.

Amazing food and service. Went for the oxtail ragu pappardelle (amazing) and the basil pesto trofie (amazing). Brussels sprout salad was superb. Still thinking about all of this the next day. Our server was really helpful and attention to detail was special, really made us feel welcome. Thanks to all of you.

First time at the restaurant. Great food and service. The arancini, bigoli, and bistecca were fantastic. The zeppole weren’t what we expected, but the manager was great and took them off our bill. Would definitely go back and would recommend to others as well.

When we first arrived we only waited a short time for them to seat us at our reservation due too the cleaning requirements. The service was excellent and the alcohol selection was perfect by the server. He knew his liquor. The steak tar tar was alright. And the cheese with bread was really good. The lamb is amazing, perfectly cooked, and everything with the lamb was perfect. The rabbit was dry and didn't really taste all that good, the carrots were alittle burnt. The price was decent for what we got.

Poor management of our expectations, Kitchen was out of the dishes that were recommended to us. Seating is very hit or miss, stared at the bathrooms the whole time, seating should be reconfigured. Excellent food.

We ordered something from each course-meun. We had a cheese dish appetizer which was not very balanced (sweet vs savoury). The first course pasta dish and the second course lamb were both very salty unfortunately and ruined the overall taste of the dishes. And it took almost an hour for the first of our food to arrive. Overall we were disappointed.
