"Cibo" is the Italian word for food. It is also the name of the biggest restaurant on the 17th Avenue Southwest shopping and dining strip. Cibo, the restaurant, serves big Italian-inspired meals intended for sharing, fully embracing the Italian belief that meals are an important social occasion. The atmosphere here is conducive to just such sharing.

“The first thing you see when you walk through the door is Big Blue,” says general manager Megan Adamson. She points to the blue, open-flame pizza oven that dominates the open kitchen at the rear of the main floor. Hand-made, old-world-inspired Italian pizza is a cornerstone of the restaurant's reputation. It also serves hearty meat and fish dishes, house-made pastas and antipasti (small dishes).

Standing over a selection of Italian lira (the country's national currency) inlaid on the entrance floor, Megan points out that the restaurant's sociable, family-friendly atmosphere has a lot to do with its handsome, homey digs. The warm, rustic decor is distinctively old-Calgary. The building was built in 1906 and has plenty of history packed into its two floors and summertime patio. Megan also points to the exposed red brick (some of which dates back to the late 1800s) and the reclaimed wood from old Alberta buildings that has been used in the construction of its distinguished countertops and wine racks.

    Great Food

    We ordered a variety of food and it was all excellent. Everything tastes fresh and the pastas taste home made! Although we didn't try the pizza, it looked wonderful...definitely going back to try that. The prices are also very reasonable

    Do-good dining: Restaurants for Change in Calgary

    A taste of Italy nestled in the heart of 17th Avenue SW, walking in the door you'll discover why Cibo’s mission to simply serve great food is literally its name. Cibo – Italian for “food" – welcomes guests with freshly baked pizza smells from its open kitchen. Share appies such as lamb meatballs with tomato, black olive, spinach and pecorino or truffle parmesan fries with white truffle oil, grana padano and sea salt. Notable pies include the goat cheese with black olives, caramelized onion, arugula, artichoke and smoked eggplant or the wild boar bacon with fennel salami, smoked pancetta and house-made sausage.
