We went here based on the excellent reviews. We loved the atmosphere. Reminded us of another restaurant in Grimsby that we love and is also located in an old house. The staff was great - friendly and attentive. The menu wasn't as extensive as we might have expected. We were a bit disappointed they didn't have a seafood pasta on... More

As a local, it is always a treat to drop by this quieter restaurant with its nicely prepared Italian dishes be it for lunch or dinner!! The outdoor brick oven pizzas are also a great food experience as you sip on a glass of the Niagara region wines and enjoy the patio atmosphere on a sunny day!! Would certainly recommend... More

Went with a group friends. My pizza came out obviously burnt (my friend beside me had the same order and it was CLEARLY not burnt). Arugula was black, crust was black, prosciutto was black. Server did not come back to the table, nor was visible for about 20 minutes. During this time, I ate some of the pieces that weren't... More

Home made pillows of ravioli filled with ricotta, lemon and egg yolk. Absolutely dreamy. Arctic Char done to perfection. Everything we tried was the best we've ever had, including dessert. Our server, Karey, perfectly met our needs- attentive, but not crowding us. We went with friends but it would make a lovely romantic date, too. BRAVO!!! Wilma Snippe- President H2Only... More

I have been to Cibo a few times over the last few years, and always liked it. The menu is now changed, very limited choices, with very poor descriptions. There were 2 of us. We had the arancini appetizer, which was good. The pasta dishes we ordered were not very good at all. My friend ordered the pappardelle with mushroom... More

Stay home and eat some fresh pasta from Sobeys and some Prego pasta sauce instead. Or better yet go to Cafe Amores in St. Catharines. Nothing at Cibos is home made. Noisy cramped restaurant
