133 Yorkville Avenue, Toronto
I recently had the pleasure in dining at the new Cibo Wine Bar in Yorkville, they had a private tasting for media, friends and family.
The space is divided into three levels. The lower level has more of a cellar feel, great for large parties and more intimate. The mid level is more casual with the bar area and the top floor is the dining area with an open concept kitchen. Both the bottom and top floor have fire pizza ovens where the pizzas can be made in about 5 minutes.
Organic mixed greens, balsamic vinegar, extra-virgin olive oil $10.
Prosciutto & Formaggio (Prosciutto, hot salami, Italian cheeses, caponata + olives), $18.
Polenta Fries with gorgonzola dip and spicy tomato sauce $9.
Gnocchi with fresh tomato sauce + ricotta cheese, $19
Veal Milanese, Butterflied breaded veal chop, seasonal vegetables, roasted potatoes, $35
Everything was absolutely delicious, the flavours were clean and not heavy. The polenta fries with the gorgonzola sauce was my favourite dish of the evening, extremely crispy with a soft interior. I'm not usually a fan of gnocchi but I couldn't stop myself from picking at it even though I was incredibly full. The veal was tender and had a nice breading, I wish there was some sort of sauce though but it was still good. Cibo Wine Bar had probably the best tiramisu I've ever had in Toronto and the panna cotta was creamy and smooth.
I can't wait to be back and try the rest of their menu.
