Nice dining room, good service, well located for events in the orpheum theatre. But the food has consistently disappointed. First visit post pandemic and it will be my last. Simply no excuse for dried, over broiled cannelloni. So dry,it was stuck to the gratin dish....Way overpriced. My guest had the burrata cheese, we shared an arugula salad and two glasses of wine. Bill was $111.00. If you must eat here, I suggest assembled dishes - eg. No cooking.More

Excellent and friendly service. Beautiful décor and comfortable. There were great menu choices. The roasted cod and the zucchini carbonara dishes were very flavourful and top-notch. The grilled baby octopus tasted delicious; however, were very overcooked. I would definitely return.

This restaurant is a must for anyone wanting to experience great food, relaxed ambience and a really good wine list! You will meet Jordan, who makes your overall experience amazing. Knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. We were there on a Friday night as a return visitor...from last July and could not have been more pleased that everything was as good as last time!More

My wife and I dined at this bistro/trattoria in downtown Vancouver, before a concert. We did not have a reservation, but were warmly received and seated quickly. Cibo serves very good food and has an excellent location, if you are attending an evening performance at...the Orpheum Theatre. Our server: Jordan was excellent. He was warm, attentive and very professional. When we were unsure able the wines selection, he offered us a taste of a couple of vintages he thought might be appropriate with our meals. I chose a lamb dish, my wife decided on a codfish dish. Both were excellent. The desserts and after meal Americanos were very enjoyable too. We also enjoyed an after concert cocktail in the adjacent UVA Wine and Cocktail bar. We will visit there again, in the future.More

After enjoying the brilliant New Years Day VSO Strauss /Viennese concert we walked a block to Cibo Trattoria for a brilliant meal. The carpaccio was delicious and delicate. Cornish game hen was succulent with a delightful collection of root vegetables . The steak was tender...and very tasty Apple pie for dessert scrumptious. All washed down with a lovely red flight . Staff very attentive and pleasant. Lovely cosy atmosphere . Great start to the year 😊👍More

Casual Italian in a nice atmosphere. Close to the downtown venues like the vso to stop in for dinner before a show. Warm, friendly service. We had the octopus, bocconcini and meat sauce pasta.

We stayed at the Moda Hotel and treated ourselves to dinner at the Cibo Trattoria with just an elevator commute! The atmosphere was lively, but relaxing. We ordered the red house wine, fried small artichokes with arugula and feta cheese, grilled octopus with cannellini beans...in tomato sauce, seared tuna, and two pasta dishes, the rigatoni and carbonara. About $200 in total for two, but we were satisfied with every sip and bite. A special thank you to servers George and Jason for the excellent service at a busy hour. They never hovered, but were efficient, attentive, and genuinely friendly.More

We are staying at the Moda Hotel which opens directly into the restaurant. Sunday evening, 6.15pm…the restaurant was almost empty and we asked to be seated, no reservation. The maître’d told us they were booked for the evening despite the fact that only 1 table...was occupied. There was an “event” planned. So we wandered around eventually selecting another restaurant. We came back an hour later expecting the restaurant to be filled with people enjoying a night out….but the silence was deafening. Still not a soul to be seen except the same maitre’d and a server chatting away. At first I was just annoyed and then returned to tell him that I thought their treatment of us was really rude and bordered on being untruthful. If they really had an event planned, we could have easily come back a little later or even agreed to cut our meal a little short since we didn’t have a table booked. He had no problem explaining away his treatment of us, offered an insincere apology for the “misunderstanding”. Stay away is my recommendation…the customer at the door has little value when compared to the potential of an “event”.More

Perfect date night spot: quiet, elegant room with fireplace and candlelight. The food was innovative (kumquats in the duck sauce, chorizo with the cod) and delicious. We chose the flight of wines, which allowed us to taste a range of offerings from the wine list...at a reasonable price. Our server Philippe was warm and engaging, yet respectful of our privacy. Overall a delightful place to spend an evening.More

Just returned from a group brunch Jan. 23/22. It took 1 1/2 hrs. to get our food after ordering it. We were the only 2 tables in there! No drip coffee at all, so you are paying $3.50 for each lukewarm cup. That's a way...to make extra revenue by making you wait so long. We refused to pay the 18% gratuity for a table of 6. We were told that the cook was pregnant and had Braxton Hicks....(not our problem). We had a reservation for over 2 weeks, so plan your staffing accordingly. One server for the entire restaurant and she was training *someone* else too? Didn't even see another person there.....food was lukewarm as was the coffee and the most basic....no dressing at all on the salad. No one was impressed in the least and no one will return. They did remove the 18% gratuity. Never again.More

Had an incredible experience at Cibo Trattoria. The service was amazing and their wine flights were really good. I highly recommend checking this place out. All the food we had was really good especially the risotto. We definitely will be back soon!

After the rugby, we decided on italian, and called Cibo and they had availability for a table for 4. Very cute cozy place. The manager was great, very knowledgeable in wine and her menu. 2 ordered the lasagna, 1 order of Clams in white wine...and fresh pasta, and a special for the day, chicken scallopini, was fabulous!! We will go back next year, it was that good!More
