Cielo - Rockville Centre reviews from OpenTable diners
  • I believe they are closing
    MaryAnnVIP
    Dined on 10/26/2013
    Note: I am required to complete all star ratings and we didn't stay for dinner. We went on Saturday night for a 6:30 reservation. We had been here before and really enjoyed it. When we arrived there were only 2 other tables that were occupied. We asked for the wine list and were told they were in between wine lists so tell them what we like. We like Cabernet....we don't have any Cabernet by the bottle.....how about Chianti?.....no.....we have blackstone merlot and Shiraz by the bottle and Chilean Cabernet by the glass. An Italian restaurant with pretty much no wine! We walked out. My guess is that they are riding out their October lease and then closing.

    I celebrated my birthday with family last sunday at Cielo. I enjoyed the ambience and the feel of classic Italy. The server was helpful and very knowledgeable. The food was excellent, I will be visiting again and telling everyone how great Cielo is. I would suggest booking through open table to secure your table. I went on a Sunday afternoon but it did start to full up.

    Four of us went for dinner the Sunday nite of the Memorial Day weekend. The restaurant was very quiet as there were only 2 other tables of diners. An appetizer of mussels was good, not great. A shared plate of Cielo's version of Penne Vodka was very good as this version had smoked salmon which gave the dish an added dimension. Main courses of shrimp scampi, the night's chicken special and Cielo's version of Chicken Scarpariello were also very good. Prices were very reasonable and the service was very good. We will certainly come back to eat here.

    Dined on 4/20/2013
    Food was very good, service was excellent. Did not rush us at dinner and prices were excelptional, with good size portions. My only negative is when I ordered an after dinner drink. I ordered a Grand Marnier on the rocks. What was delivered to the table had a lighter color to it and really did not taste the same to me. I have been drinking this cordial for over 30 years and this drink was not the real. After arriving home I poored a drink from my own bottle and it was much darker than the restaurant. The taste was also much different than what I had at the restaurant. I would defintely go back for the food. I should add that I did see a bottle of Grand Marnier behind the bar.

    Good basic restaurant. A bit pricey with entrees in the high twenties... my fish dish was quite good. My companions "special" was a bit odd, a combination of fish served over mashed potatoes? I don't know what part of Italy this dish would originate from?? The appetizer salad was quite good. We split it and the plated it in the kitchen. the house wine was passable. Overall? It was very FINE. It wasn't wonderful. The service was excellent which made it very enjoyable.

    Though the ambiance is fantastic and the food very good, the quality of the service was deplorable......the waiter was robotic, with a moderate command of the menu,......he mixed up the drink order, and never returned with wine ordered during the meal. Though there were only four of us at dinner the staff was unable to be 50% correct on who ordered what..... The staff reach across the table putting elbows in the food! All ordered decaf coffee.....only to find out later that evening that we were all served regular coffee. In addition the noise level in the dining area was equal to most great bars in Las Vegas!

    Valentines Day is a tough review for any restaurant as the staff is pushed to their limits. I believe they did a great job trying to fit everyone in as they converted most tables for two. The waiter staff was friendly and attentive (love refills on bread without asking). The prefix menu was varied and overall very good. Nothing outstanding, nothing bad. It fit our needs and we had a nice dinner. Overall a very good experience and I would recommend stopping in, but try them on regular night for the real deal.

    Should have anticipated this when I got an easy reservation for New Year's Eve. First the wine list: We had to order three times before we found one that they actually had. In fact, even that was not available so the owner came over with a substitution--no break in price by the way. My dinner was poor. I had zuppe de pesce and it had quite a lot of seafood that was not on the menu. I carefully chose this meal because the listed seafood did not contain these items which I don't like . The sauce was incredibly bland. Did not eat. My husband's meal was very bland as well. The apple crisp which we shared to avoid starvation was very good. On a bright note, the waiters were attentive and pleasant. Great service. We would not return.

    Wa ate here on New Years Eve and while the staff was nice the food was terrible. I had the rack of lamb (medium rare) which was 3 lamb chops that were overcooked, grissly, and rubbery. The potatoes were COLD which just ruins a meal. I had the mozzarelllo carrozzo appy and it was basically a deep fried mozzarella grilled cheese (with wonder bread!). My girlfriend had the filet of sole stuffed with crabmeat whicj arrived lukewarm at best and was diner class fish at best. The only reason I gave one star was the mussels in white wine sauce which were delicious. With a bottle of wine and tip (I didn't punish the waiter for the poor food) this meal ran me almost $200.00. I will never go back.

    I went for my birthday this passed Sunday. The service was attentive. The food was tasty. We had the calamari, figs, and portobello mushroom to start. The servings were small but great tasting. They allowed me to bring my own cake and cut and plated it for me. We ordered two bottles of wine and we never refilled our own glasses! I would definitely return. Great dinner and great service.

    The food was nothing special and the wines were kind of lousy. Given the amount of non-descript Italian places on LI, this place does nothing to stand out. Parking is also an issue and everything is probably overpriced for what it is. You could do a lot better elsewhere for a lot less money. Older crowd with a non-offensive but boring ambiance.

Extremely enjoyable! Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!!
