We went here after hearing about it from friends who tend to seek out good restaurants. They were right about this one. Tucked away in Oliver square, if you walked passed it you would probably assume its just another average-quality bistro. Wrong! The chef is Italian heritage and trained at the Nait cooking school, and can create some pretty amazing creations.

The meal: we started with some nicely prepared cocktails. Shared a lobster ravioli with buttery cream sauce starter, then had halibut as a main, while my wife had Italian meatballs- big ones, very tasty! And on a bed of arugula, not pasta. My fish was very nice, tender and a tasty sauce.

Overall the main advantage of Cibo is the food. The service was also attentive and friendly. Decore is average. Not the same buzz nd hype as corso32, but food is nearly as good. We will be back

I've been here several times and always had great food. The front of house glitches have been worked out and everything is smooth sailing. The menu is seasonal - the panzanella salad is great, last week the halibut was perfect. The beef cheek is to die for and is always on the menu. The desserts are different and very good. This is a popular place and I wouldn't go without a reservation. I haven't been at lunchtime but the menu looks interesting.

My girlfriends and I went here for dinner 5:30 on a Wednesday night. It is not a very large place - maybe room for 30 people; we had made a reservation but didn't need it. The service was prompt, there when we needed it and otherwise we were left to our conversations. We decided to try different appetizers - the Arancini, Polpette and the Trio de Bruchetta della Casa. All were outstanding. It is difficult to pick my favourite. Of the bruchetta's the mushroom ragu was the best. For desert we shared the Bustrego cake - we were all intrigued with the concept of "Olive oil Cake". It was delicious - dense, flavorful but not overly sweet. A great finish. The bill including coffee, 3 glasses of wine and tip came to about $35 for each of us. Very reasonable. I would love to go again and try some of dinner specials.
