Cibo Trattoria Launches New Summer BBQ Boxes


Grill-Ready Meal Kits for Four Feature Dry Aged Ribeyes, Prawn and Vegetable Skewers, Selection of Antipasto and Charcuterie and More

Cibo Trattoria is helping guests get a head start on summer grilling season and providing the perfect last-minute Father’s Day feast by introducing new Summer BBQ Boxes available for 48-hour pre-order and pickup at the downtown restaurant.

The brainchild of new Head Chef Jesse Zuber, each Cibo Summer BBQ Box is available for $200 plus tax, offers enough food for four adults and comes wrapped and ready to go with grilling tips from the chef and a tea towel, in addition to:

  • Two 10oz AAA 38-day Dry Aged Ribeye Steaks — marinated in Cibo’s signature Italian marinade of rosemary, thyme, black peppercorn, garlic, oregano and early harvest olive oil;
  • Four Prawn Skewers — side stripe prawns marinated in a Sicilian chili and citrus sauce;
  • Four Vegetable Skewers — farm-fresh vegetables marinated in aged balsamic and olive oil;
  • Antipasto Platter — mixed marinated olives, grilled and marinated Sicilian artichokes and bocconcini-stuffed organic sweet peppers in spiced oil;
  • Selection of Charcuterie — incorporating both Cibo’s in-house charcuterie program and an imported selection of fine Italian salumi;
  • Mediterranean Potato Salad — baby nugget potatoes, lemon and parsley;
  • One loaf of Housemade Ciabatta Bread for the grill.

Vancouver-born-and-raised Zuber recently joined the team at Cibo and UVA after helming kitchens at Ayden Kitchen & Bar and Little Grouse on the Prairie in Saskatoon, helping the latter earn a coveted spot on the annual compilation of Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants in 2017. In 2018, Zuber became a familiar face across the nation when he appeared as a contestant on the sixth season of The Food Network Canada’s Top Chef Canada TV series.

Cibo’s Summer BBQ Boxes are available throughout the summer for $200 plus tax and can be pre-ordered up to 48 hours in advance via or by calling the restaurant at 604-602-9570. Reservations for dine-in service for Father’s Day can be made via OpenTable or by calling the restaurant at 604-602-9570
