King West is one of our favorite places to spend time in when Toronto. In fact we tend to spend a lot of time west of Spadina. Cibo Wine Bar is an 8000 sq ft right smack dab in the middle. The layout is open with exposed wood beams, and hard wood floors. The use of wood and brick throughout give it that old world charm.
The genius brothers, and the owners from the Liberty Entertainment Group, Nick and Pat Di Donato are behind one of our new favorite places on King West. They are also the ones behind Toronto supper clubs like Rosewater and Spice Route.
The kitchen is helmed by Chef Saverio Marci who has an impressive 88 items on the menu. Yes, you read that right, 88! You better bring your appetite or be prepared to not look over the menu for too long. As it is an Italian restaurant, the wine collection is primarily stocked with Italian wines, but they do have wines from Canada, France, and California on the list, too.
