It's been several years since we ate at ViBo (we were faithful patrons when it was known as Villa Borghese) and it's good to know 'you CAN come back.' ViBo offers an upscale and elegant (but kid friendly) environment, with helpful, friendly and in our case, exceptionally charming wait staff. The menu is varied for every taste. The Sicilian specialties,... More

I moved away from Toronto 25 years ago but every time I come back I make a point of visiting Vibo. You know a restaurant is good when pretty much all of the tables are full and that's exactly what happens at Vibo. There are also a lot of regulars and the greeting you get when you walk in is...

1st time I've been since they changed from Villa Borghese to ViBo [15 years ago ?]. Used to go every month and never ordered off the menu since the Fish specials were varied and killers. Visited on a Saturday night at 7.30 with a reservation and the place was packed. A wonderful experience from beginning to end ...... from the... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for years and have never had a bad meal. Service is good and food is always really fresh and always excellent. Coming from a Italian background I am extremely picky about my food. We always try new places but always are happy to come back to Vibo.

Food excellent. Waiters attentive daily specials focus a lot on fish I had the veal scallopini with lemon sauce and shared a place of gnocchi in Gorgonzola sauce. Divine. Wine prices not cheap but very good selection

By lovely boyfriend took me here for a dinner before I moved to another city. The service was probably one of the best I've ever had. The staff were super friendly, knowledgable about the menu and had fantastic recommendations. The man playing the piano added another level of charm to the whole evening!

http://www.vibo.ca/new-menu/ We love the attentive service, and high quality execution of a chiefly Italian yet diverse menu (i.e. braised short ribs in jus), for a consistently good experience. Whether locals (Kingsway) dining in, a business lunch or dinner, and even high end take home. It's worth a short trip west to Bloor and Royal York on the subway for a... More
