Cibo Trattoria Restaurant Review

: Located near the Orpheum Theatre and just off the Moda Vancouver Hotel lobby, the intimate Cibo Trattoria serves rustic Italian-inspired dishes. Executive chef Faizal Kassam, Vancouver born and bred, stays true to the Italian philosophy of using fresh ingredients and simple recipes. Cibo, Italian slang for food or festive feast, is housed in a 100-year-old building with towering pieces of local pop art that contrast with the original terra cotta floors, vast ceilings, and exposed timber beams. The seasonal and farmer-driven menu includes grilled octopus; a salad of chickpeas, heirloom tomatoes, roasted peppers and chilli aïoli; risotto with preserved duck and pine mushrooms; and espresso panna cotta with Roman brandy and amaretti. Take a seat at the reclaimed wood high-top communal table, or the Grappa bar. A pre-theatre menu served from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. features a three-course meal for $39 per person. The wine list includes exotic Italian varietals as well as a selection of “backyard” wines from the Okanagan. The adjacent Uva Wine Bar is a Vancouver standout.
