When we think Cibo (CHEE-bo) meaning food in Italian, we aspire to give you better-than-homey modern Italian cuisine. Speak to us of Bistro and we think warm, neighborhood and rustic, a casual space with serious food and wine.
Tucked away in Oliver Village with a garden side patio, the Bistro’s room is adorned with candle lit tables, modern pieces and finished with an old world touch. The 48 seat modern Italian bistro is perfect for a romantic night out, an intimate evening with friends or a large gathering of family and co-workers.
“I focus on sourcing quality ingredients locally as well as from Italy keeping our menu simple and tasty. We try to make everything in house offering Edmonton fresh breads, hand rolled pastas, in house cured meats, and homemade cheeses. Our menu changes seasonally with inspirations from northern Italy in winter, southern Italy in summer, and central Italy year round. My origins are Calabrian so you’ll find a hint of Calabrese in everything I do.”
– Rosario Caputo, Chef & Owner
“It’s a special moment when a customer asks me to find them the perfect wine to compliment their meal and enhance their celebration. I’m blessed to have a career that allows me to create an unforgettable experience with three simple things! Exceptional customer service, delicious food and extraordinary wine”
– Lisa Caputo, General Manager, Sommelier, & Owner
“When the food at a restaurant is exceptional it creates laughter, good conversation and an overall fantastic experience. My grandmother taught me that no one should leave the table dissatisfied, and that there was no recipe that couldn’t be improved. If the food I make can create that mood, and convey a sense of fulfillment, that will always be the only gratitude I need.”
– Nicolas Arzt, Sous Chef
“I don’t know if there’s a cuisine that we take more for granted than Italian food. We’ve been conditioned by jarred sauces and mass-produced pastas. So when you dig into pasta that’s finished as delicately as you get from the kitchen of Rosario Caputo at Cibo Bistro, you realize just how good the simple noodle can be. Take traditional Italian food and bring it up several notches with some very refined adjustments.”
