We had friends in from BC and this was the perfect place to showcase great food, wine and ambiance for her 40th birthday! Really enjoyed it.

Requested a table that was not squeezed in between 2 tables and what did we get, a table squeezed in between 2 tables. The restaurant was not full yet so the hostess basically didn’t read the notes.

Has the mozzarella di bufala pizza. Was very watery. So watery when I took the leftover home in the cardboard box, it literally stuck to the box. I had to get a knife to cut the bottom out.

Other than than, service and food is pretty decent. Prices are average so I go here from time to time. Not special but nothing horrible.

I went there for date anniversary, and we really loved the place. I had seafood risotto and my husband ordered lasanha. Both were good! My husband loved the lasanha. For desert, I recommend the lime cheesecake, it was perfect.
The staff was also good! We will be back, for sure.

We got a groupon for brunch. The waitress wasnt very attentive at all. I showed her the groupon from the beginning and she said they take it at the end. At the end she brings the regular bill anyways. It took some time to get the groupon bill and there was a mandatory 18% gratuity attached. Unless there's a party of 6 or more, that shouldn't be mandatory... there was 2 of us, and the service wasnt worth 18%

If you are looking for a good Italian place in king west, this would be a good choice. Patrons are kind of pretentious and snobby though. Lots of millenial posers. But that's a king west thing not a Cibo thing.

Having said this, if you are a gen x or gen z looking for good Italian, I would recommend this place for the food. Avoid if you want to enjoy the evening without having to hear conversations/ see millenials bragging about how cool their lives are, all the while wearing the same club Monaco or H and M outfits.

Too dark. Pizza was terrible. Coffee brought to me was dripping on my pants and when I asked for napkins it was given to me with attitude. And how could they possibly charge 18% gratuity on the entire bill automatically and ask for tip on top? Seriously?

Service was confused. We were lost in the shuffle. After waiting at the bar for out able we were told that we couldn’t transfer our bar bill to our table. After having to hunt down someone to settle our bar tab with we were seated. The first person to serve us opened up with “Did you pay for that already?” Instead of making the patrons needs first, it was all about $ and the staff’s needs. Food was good but we felt like cattle being processed.

Took my wife to Cibo (King st.) to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our overall experience was amazing. The ambience along with the decor and setup of the restaurant was beautiful. Loved the little details. In addition, the service we received from our server, Devahira, was phenomenal. She was not only helpful but also very personable. She attended to us throughout the night without making us feel as though she was hovering over us. On top of all that, the food came out quickly and with great quality!

Looking forward to our next visit.

Great place, I would come again. We dined outside because it was such a beautiful night. Next time I would like to be inside to experience the true vibe and ambiance. It was busy and buzzing when we walked thru the inside. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. we dined on a Tuesday night. Will be back for sure! Grazie

We loved our evening at Cibo. The sommelier was very helpful and we ended up with a fantastic bottle! The food balanced the comfort-food feel of great Italian with a slight twist of modern to give it all a little extra excitement. The service was solid, even though the place was absolutely packed.

Our experience at Cibo was phenomenal. The wait staff created a friendly, classy atmosphere, that made for a great date night highlighted by bold, fresh pasta dishes. The carbonara and paradelle were among the best we have experienced.

Cibo has over the past years been a ‘must go’ during TIFF, but this time everything was wrong. The service was really bad and we had asked to wait between starter and mai course which she confirmed but when we then asked for the mains they came instantly and no doubt it had been standing ready on a heater for a long time. I had pasta with meatballs and the meatballs were so hard and dense and looked and tasted like they’d been bought frozen in the supermarket. The pasta was so soft as if cooked for hours. I barely ate anything but she didn’t even ask when taking the plat if something was wrong. A very disappointing experience

The appetizer was so small and the cheese was dry. The main pasta dish was also dry and not very flavourful. Very expensive for poor quality food. However, the staff was friendly and helpful and the atmosphere very nice.

We went for a late night dinner and the food and wine were great, they had a sommelier for my partner to help him choose an appropriate one for his taste, she was on point! The one downfall I have is because we went for a late night dinner they do start me move tables and chairs to set up for next day brunch and it is pretty loud and disruptive while having while you are finishing up your dinner.

Service was excellent , super noisy on the patio but that was the fault of the bar across the street. Portions were on the smaller side, delicious nevertheless but the desserts were not good at all, this is an Italian restaurant and cannoli and tiramisu not being top notch is unacceptable. Other than that great experience.
