Downtown Dining Room Marks ‘Festa Della Mamma’ by Offering Special Menus, 
Floral-forward Spring Cocktails, Mother’s Day Gift Cards


Chef Josh Gonneau and the staff at Cibo Trattoria will mark Mother’s Day in authentic Italian style by offering special Brunch and Dinner menus at the downtown destination on Sunday, May 13.

Open for Brunch from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Cibo will offer a pair of Mother’s Day menu features – Ricotta Gnocchetti (nettle and almond pesto, spring vegetables, poached egg), Prosciutto and Mascarpone Ravioli (beet dough, nettle and almond pesto, parmesan fonduta) and Seared Albacore Tuna (asparagus, radish, spring onion vinaigrette) – in addition to its delicious daily selection of rustic, sweet and savoury dishes.

From 5 p.m. onwards, guests are invited to enjoy a four-course set menu of regionally inspired Italian cuisine for $65 per person, plus tax and gratuity, in addition to the restaurant’s regular a-la-carte menu offerings.

The occasion also presents an ideal opportunity to sample the new signature spring cocktails by Bar Manager Sabrine Dhaliwal available at Cibo and next door at sister spot UVA Wine & Cocktail Bar — recently recognized among Canada’s 50 Best Bars — such as the low-proof, fragrant Petals and Pansies (passion fruit, citrus, jasmine green tea, sherry) and the vibrant Cherry Blossoms (Campari, Amaro Lucano, mango, lime).
