Best Italian Restaurant: Cibo
Serving family-style Italian food at two locations in Calgary, Cibo is a hotspot for local Calgarians craving saucy pizza or even saucier pasta. The 17th Avenue location is found in a beautiful 1906 heritage building, with large doors and brick walls to treat the eyes. The newer Centre Street location, opened in 2018, is found in a building with a long Italian restaurant history, serving citizens tasty dishes for years. Here at Cibo, they break conventional dining rules. Your food is made to order, hot and fresh right out of the kitchen ready to enjoy, share and be devoured in minutes. This is pizza, and pasta, for the people.
If we had to sum up Cibo in a few words, we’d say: authentic Italian dining at an affordable cost – what more could you ask for? With $17 lunch specials and late-night happy hour, Cibo makes dining out realistic, and exciting, for the working folk. Monday through Saturday, you’ll find $5 pizza on the menu. You heard us right – five bucks! To see what’s hot on the menu at both locations, visit Cibo’s website.
