I hate to admit it but I always had a weakness for Italian food, be it pizza, pasta or those mouthwatering fried and stuffed rice balls (Arancini)! So every so often when the craving comes calling I make my way over to Cibo Wine Bar, having a number of different locations over Toronto certainly helps.
While some may consider this a chain (and yes my preference is to try more of unique local places if possible) they make a mean Arancini and it's one of my guilty pleasures. They are priced around the same as other multi-location places but I find their quality of food to be much better. So if you are looking for a dinner out after a busy day at work, but want better quality food (over some of the other generic choices we have) I would throw my vote behind Cibo.
Of course don't forget to save some room for their tasty desserts as well. Having just moved, I realize that I am dangerously close to one of their locations, so if ever I get the craving it's just a few minutes down the street!
