“Quality is slowly deteriorating”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

This was 5th time at Bibo and unfortunately I have to say that the quality of their food is slowly deteriorating. We shared the Antipasto misto, that used to be excellent. Last night the prosciutto was definitely under par, the salame was dry, there was a lot of salad and bread and very very little meat and cheese.
The pizza dough was ok, even thought a bit under seasoned. We had a sample of their ravioli, that on the other end were way over salty.
Service was slow and not very attentive.
The only very good note were the dessert that were quite good and fresh.
I really hope that with the new decor, they will bring back the old quality of food.

“The best pizza!!!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

My family couldn't wait any longer,
Beside having the pizza that honestly is the best in town we also had il tagliere... a delicious platter loded with Italian cold cuts, cheese and fresh focaccia bread, their homemade ravioli are to die for it!!! And despite the fact that we were so full we had to have the tiramisu!
Looking forward to go back

“Awesome Italian place!”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

I’ve tried a lot of Italian places in Vancouver but this one clearly stands out!
The atmosphere is simple but very warm, comfy and classy at the same time.
The service is awesome; all the waiters were perfectly polite and very friendly.
The food is excellent, very good value! We shared a plate of charcuterie with my friend and it was delicious and fresh. Then we all had our separate dish. My pizza was really good, and they were very generous with the meat topping. I was way to stuffed to try a dessert; maybe next time!
I will go again for sure!

“Memories of Rome”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

I am not sure how others could have had poor experiences at Bibo - in my experience it was excellent in all areas. Staff were friendly, helpful, and I really liked that they allowed us time to chat, have a drink and enjoy apps before ordering mains etc. Food was outstanding. We (3 adults) shared the olive oil tasting and Italian flag salad for appetizers - every mouthful delicious. For mains, we ordered the tagliatella ragu, gnocchi ragu and the oh so incredible cacio e pepe rigatoni - a dish discovered and enjoyed on a recent trip to Rome. Bibo's version was even better. Not a scrap of food remained despite the generous portions. We couldn't resist sharing a tiramisu (good but i make better) and a cream caramel - also good. Overall a terrific evening with wonderful food in a relaxed atmosphere. Look forward to returning.
