This is my second time eating at Cibo - first time on King, second time in Yorkville. Didn’t love it the first time but decided to give it another try as my daughter wanted to eat there with friends for her birthday. I am not planning to go back again. I really like the decor, ambience, and location but the food was disappointing. Also, I called in advance that night to request a slice of cake and a candle be delivered to my daughter’s table and mentioned it to the hostess when we arrived. They never delivered the cake.

Arrived at 11am so the restaurant was quiet. The brunch menu is short but one can always fall back to the regular menu offerings. My eggs benny with smoked salmon was delicious. The drinks offered for brunch were all half price so that was really nice.
Our wait person Kate was friendly and efficient and overall it was a great way to kickstart the day.

Cibo in Yorkville never disappoints. One of our favourite dinner spots in the city. We had eggplant parmigiana to start and pizza for main course. Both were delicious. The wine list is extensive and has something for every taste and budget.

To me CIBO food was average compare to its hype as one the good restaurants in Toronto. We went there from Cambridge to Toronto to get to eat in very nice Italian restaurants but I felt Cambridge/Kitchener/waterloo has better restaurants than CIBO.
I am not going to go back again.

I had placed an order through OpenTable for a dessert to be brought at the end of the meal but it never came and I said it was for a birthday. Please follow up with the location as I have put this request in before for other restaurants through OpenTable and always worked out fine. Disappointed that it did not this time for my moms birthday. It makes me question whether I would use this service again and may as well speak to the restaurant directly in the future.

We asked for quiet table and received one for half an hour - then the other tables filled up and we could barely hear one another. Really Noisy. The food was good. It is a nice restaurant if you don’t mind yelling at your dinner companion.

This was all of our first times there. The whole menu looked delicious so we ordered a bunch of stuff to share. The food was outstanding, the wine we had was like desert and the service was on point. Over all, a little pricey but we would definitely go back!

I've been here for lunch several times and have enjoyed the food very much. We met friends for dinner on Saturday evening and it got busy which was fine but the noise level became so loud that we really couldn't have a conversation. Not sure what can be done about that but it was disappointing as my friends had never dined there before and I'm sure they won't return. I will return for lunch but not dinner.

I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday. The sommelier was lovely and even gave us samples of wines she thought we would like for next time. The food was amazing and for a good price. I recommend going for their lobster deal on Tuesdays, the lobster risotto did not disappoint. I am mainly writing because our server, Alanna, made the experience. It was some of the best service I have received in awhile (and I am a server working in the industry). She was attentive, kind, and really made our experience that much more perfect.

Staff was friendly but food was disappointing. Sausage appetizer was delicious. Main course was a let down. Ordered carbonara but was not very good. Bolognese was not very flavorful and lacked salt. Overall just not a great meal! Will not visit again.

Had a nice table on top level which gave us great views of the street. As weather was warm the patio area was open. Manicotti dish was good - pizza was large so could def share. Appys were ok - bruschetta and fried veggies.

Had a nice date dinner with the husband. Food was great. I had the lobster ravioli and it was delicious. Calamari was a bit salty but still delicious. the bruschetta was bland needs more flavour . For the dessert, the tiramisu was small in proportion and unattractive, not worth the $10. service was slow, we constantly have to ask the waitress for her attention and took forever when I asked for the bill and it was not busy at the time. Overall, the experience was still great even with small flaws.

will go back for the lobster ravioli for sure. worth to go back. 😊😊😊😊

Waitress interrupted our meal 12 times in 2hrs. Food did not meet expectation. Order of shrimp was served in what seemed tomato sauce. The ambience was nice, restaurant is beautiful and hostess was welcoming and kind.

The service and ambiance were commendable however, the food was terrible. The food either had no flavour or an overwhelming and unwelcome amount of flavour. I was very disappointed as I have been to other locations and loved it.

This is our favorite Toronto restaurant & we never visit Toronto without including dinner at Cibo. GM Victoria and Mgr. Sarah do a great job running an efficient but relaxed & friendly restaurant. Shia, Jeremy & Cara at the bar make it the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail or 2. Overall, the atmosphere / aesthetics are impressive, the food is awesome and we've never had anything but excellent service.

The restaurant was okay but there was stuff on the floor. We were seated by the bathroom & patrons left the door open & we were staring at the toilet. Not nice when you are eating.
When ordering we asked the waitress on portion sizes & they were not described as received. We kind of left hungry. Our drinks didn’t come with any garnishes. The food was good just portion sizes were a little small.

Great place to have a meal with friends. Delicious food, great service, good value for money (we chose from the fixed-price lunch menu). Only negatives were that we had to wait 10 minutes for our table despite advance reservations. It was also very loud, but that's because the restaurant wss completely packed.

We were excited to try CIBO. Our server was friendly and helpful with our order. Unfortunately, our dinners took forever, a meal we didn't order was almost delivered to our table and they seemed to be short-staffed. After a very long time we did eventually get what we had ordered and it was good, especially the mushrooms. Portions are generous and not overpriced. The music was way too overpowering for this type of restaurant and
dining with friends who want to talk. Worth a try if you have time and are up to listening to loud, booming music.

Andrea was our server and he was exceptional. He was well informed with the menu and took time to talk to us at a personal level . Cibo is very fortunate to have him. We will diffidently return for the food and service , and most diffidently request Andrea !

Our dinner were okay. My risotto and my husband's steak was flavourless. We don't like a lot of salt in our food but there was no salt in my risotto at all. We ordered the prosciutto and cheese board which was small and nothing special. We had to ask for bread.

I requested the patio for 6 of us a week in advance and it was a special occasion because my family were here from out of town. The weather was perfect, and when I arrived to Cibo the host and manager wouldn’t accommodate us, as per my request stated in my reservation.
There was plenty of room on the patio! We had to sit downstairs in the basement with my elderly family who could barely walk and with extreme noise! And my 80 year old cousin couldn’t hear any of us speak. It was awful and too loud. It ruined the evening. I will never go back.
They should have contacted me to let me know that 6 were not able to be seated outside.
I would’ve gone elsewhere.
