Cibo Wine Bar has re-opened after being shut down by a health inspection earlier this week.
The eatery closed its doors temporarily after a recent report showed two major infractions: “food premise maintained in manner permitting health hazard (Insects),” and “fail to protect against harbouring of pests.”

Nick Di Donato, President and CEO of Liberty Entertainment Group (which owns Cibo), credited the shutdown to a case of poor timing.
“We always work with Toronto City health and believe safety is paramount,” Di Donato told Daily Hive earlier this week. “We have frequent pest control bombing, every two weeks, and unfortunately the health inspector was there right after a bombing.”
After a treatment, pests come out of hiding, which is, according to the restaurant, what the health inspector saw.
Di Donato told Daily Hive that the restaurant would not be able to open its doors again until 24 hours after they completed a pest control treatment, and produced a letter of confirmation for a health inspector.
The restaurant has received a pass on their most recent inspection, conducted on April 11.
