Cibo Trattoria has lots to share with you…

 

Cibo Trattoria has always focused on bringing quality, flavourful Italian cuisine to Vancouver.  It has won numerous awards over the years, and consistently evolved to stay on point with Vancouver’s culinary scene.  In the last month, we have undergone some exciting changes which we would love to share with you, and look forward to having you come in to experience.

 A ‘FROM SCRATCH’, SLOW FOOD APPROACH BRINGS RUSTIC, ITALIAN CUISINE TO CIBO TRATTORIA

Executive Chef Jonathan Chovancek (Sooke Harbour House, Culinary Capers, Café Medina) and Chef De Cuisine Josh Gonneau (Ontario’s The Oakville Club, Boulevard Club and Land and Fire Local Kitchen) recently joined the Cibo team and have revamped all of Cibo’s menus.  The new menus serve up authentic Italian cuisine prepared in a traditional manner with ethically sourced, seasonal and local ingredients.  The menus are based on a ‘from-scratch’ approach in the kitchen that works with Mother Nature and embraces the ‘Slow Food’ philosophy founded by Italian writer Carlo Petrini to showcase a simple, rustic elegance in each dish.

Our new team has also brought Cibo’s Breakfast and Lunch programs into the forefront, and really focused on making these daytime meals something special.  A special offering this month is our Mangiamo! Lunch Tasting Menu – a 2 course mid-day meal for only $12.99.

Whether it’s Weekend Brunch, a business meeting or a weekday lunch date with friends, come in and enjoy some of these delicious and flavourful dishes.

CIBO’S NEW LOOK


We have recently updated the interiors of our main dining room to create a modern yet inviting space.  The building was originally constructed in 1908, and the terracotta floors are original to the building, as well as the raw timber columns and interior brick walls.  This envelope of raw materials – terracotta, wood and brick – in natural, rich colours acts as the foundation  – but then, there is another layer created with pops of colour in the artwork, textures in the variety of rich fabrics utilized in the room, and brilliance in the carefully selected lighting and mirrors meticulously situated throughout the space.  The end result  is a room that mirrors the overall philosophy of Cibo Trattoria which is marrying the best of tradition with new discoveries – and celebrating all that is good.

NEW SUNDAY SUPPER SERIES


Cibo invites friends and family to gather around the dinner table to celebrate its ‘Mangia FamigliaSundaysupper series. Served family-style in the warmth of the downtown dining room, the hearty dinner will include a platter of roast meat and a bounty of seasonal vegetables to share for $27 per person; minimum 2 people.“We look forward to welcoming guests to sample the simple pleasures of an authentic Italian trattoria and tuck into a true Italian feast every Sunday night with this unique dinner series,” says General Manager Mark Taylor. “It’s a great way to gather around the table and share a very special experience in a cozy and intimate space in the heart of the city.”

 A SPECIAL DAY –
CELEBRATE MOM

In honour of Mother’s Day, Cibo Trattoria will be offering an extended brunch service from 8 am to 3 pm. The new a-la-carte brunch menu features a variety of sweet and savoury dishes including classic breakfast fare (whole grain and nut granola, vegetable frittata, panettone French toast) and seasonal Mother’s Day specials such as spaghetti carbonara with house-cured lamb bacon and Triangle Sound halibut with parmesan polenta and asparagus.
