Meet the owner

Rosario Caputo, chef and owner of Cibo Bistro, grew up “always around the kitchen but never cooking,” he says. But he was inspired by food, by the community and camaraderie that food inevitably excites, so one day, after acquiring a Business Administration diploma from NAIT, he decided to enter the Culinary Arts Program and “fell in love with everything," he says. “ I just got extremely passionate about the industry and the food and the ingredients.”

Sourcing ingredients for Cibo Bistro locally (whenever possible) from suppliers like Mona Foods, Gull Valley Greenhouse, Four Whistle Farms and Acme Meat Market, Rosario also receives fresh, organic vegetables from his family’s garden in Jasper. “My grandmother and grandfather had this immaculate garden that they tended to,” he says. “Every spring, they would plant the garden, and every summer it would be the greenest garden in town.” When his grandparents passed away, his father carried on the family tradition, supplying Rosario with zucchini, green and yellow beans, carrots, peas and sometimes tomatoes. Each spring, his father asks him what to plant and then continually sends produce throughout the summer.

Fantastic!!

Cibo Bistro is a very welcome addition to Edmonton! I went to it last night with my fiancé and everything about it was amazing!!! It's a small but very sleek and clean place. The service was quick and friendly. But let's get to the most important part… the food! Absolutely delicious. The restaurant focuses on fresh and local food and making everything in-house and you can tell… Sharing the charcuterie board is a must. The wild boar is amazing. I ordered the Tagliatelle Con Vongole (fresh clams and shallots in white wine) and my fiance ordered the Osso Bucco (braised veal shank preserved lemon gremolata fried bone marrow). So fresh. So tasty. Melts in your mouth. And leaves you wanting more despite being super stuffed! End off the dinner with the Chocolate Trio dessert and you're good to go! We had an amazing time and will definitely be back! Cibo is fantastic!

Tiny, intimate and cozy Edmonton restaurants

Another excellent Italian spot, Cibo Bistro is slightly bigger than Corso 32, with a dining room that seats 50 people. Cibo is also open for lunch during the week, making it unique for a small eatery. The food ranges from antipasta, such as olives or grilled octopus to potato gnocchi with Gorgonzola cream, toasted pistachios and 35-year aged balsamic. Don’t skimp on the mains, which include duck, rabbit and rib eye steak, or the sides, like potatoes fried in duck fat and topped with garlic, rosemary and Sicilian sea salt.

A popular, authentic Italian eatery in Oliver Square, Cibo Bistro does more than make fresh, fantastic pasta and crazy savoury arancini; they also happen to have a phenomenal steak dish on their menu, the Bistecca. This pan roasted Alberta rib eye is aged 45 days and is served with wilted rapini and charred cherry tomatoes.

Restaurants for the perfect first date

This Italian restaurant has lots of windows to let in the moonlight, creating the ideal romantic setting (not to mention all the candles, the obvious indicator of romance). It also has a stellar menu of Italian delicacies – they hand roll their pasta in house, in addition to curing their meat and making cheese on the premises. Cibo means `food` in Italian, so go ahead and wow your date with your knowledge of this romantic language.
