  • "Food and service remain excellent. Excellent for outdoor dining."

  • "And the food was a solid 9 out of 10, with perfect service, especially for the price of a lunch. We did the DineLA and split a dessert. The pounded steak was outstanding."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Can't say enough nice comments about Il Cielo it went beyond my expectations. the food was superb as were the drinks. The service was definite 5 star rating. I will definitely be returning again. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience."

  • "Came here for DineLA lunch. There was only the front garden and inside open. Their back garden was closed. Pretty hot on a summer noon time and no breeze cuz the bushes around. Super clean and beautiful decorations. Food was fantastic, great salad and pasta and dessert. The only problem is the service who did not even smile a tiny bit. He looked very unhappy and unfriendly. Not a very warm service at all!"

  • "My wife had asked if I was ever at Il Cielo? I told her once before but it was unmemorable, but I will try again. The food was OK at best. The waiter was sub-par for a nice restaurant. The waiter did not ask us for drinks and did not introduce himself. No fresh ground pepper served with the pounded greasy steak and no steak knife was given until asked. All Dine LA restaurant's give 3 courses and Il Cielo only 2? Would never go back again. The staff was untrained for a high class restaurant. I can't believe they are still in biz after all these years. We were put outside with loud fans blowing on us in the hot sun. Construction is going on next door. Train your staff. Go have a meal at Mastro's and see a real wait staff!"

  • "I've always wanted to eat at Il Cielo but thought it may be too expensive. So I was delighted that they were part of Dine LA. I went with a couple of friends and we couldn't be happier with the food, service, ambience, etc. We ate in the front patio with all the twinkling lights wrapped around the trees. It was a fabulous dining experience. The server was pleasant, friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and attentive. I had this wonderful pea, shallot, leeks and potato soup that had no cream but pureed. I could have licked the bowl. One of my friends and I had the linguine with clams -- a lot of clams and just the right amount of linguine. My friend had beef cheek ravioli and loved it. She said it was like what she had in Italy."

  • "Fine food, friendly service and a lovely setting right in Beverly Hills made for a pleasantly refined and affordable spot for a lunch away from the madding crowd of Rodeo Drive and the like. Great pizzas and salads entrees. Equally great selection of wines and desserts. Definitely a terrific neighborhood gem."

  • "i went to experience the happy hour which is widely advertised on the web site - the night i arrived i was told i couldn't experience it where i was sitting - and worse, the bar was not open due to a wedding - so, the entire happy hour pricing was not offered - the management would not make an exception - if they advertise their specials - they should be available"

  • "Grear place, romantic, great service I would definitely recommend this place to everyone."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "We went here because of the DineLA though had been there on other occasions too. it is one of the most beautiful romantic settings sitting outside shielded from the street. On DineLA the portions are usually smaller and they were but certainly sufficient. The appetizers wre excellent; main dish of salmon was also though filet was very over cooked and had to be sent back but was cheerfully replaced though it took a while after its being delivered to find a server to correct the problem. Dessert was panna cotta with berries...that is exactly one berry. Was delicious but should have had a few more berries since the menu was clearly plural."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Old town villa style restaurant. Definitely worth the reservation. If you are looking for a place to take a special someone, celebrate a special day, or looking for fine dining, you're in the right place. I will definitely be coming back. The food is fresh and handmade, especially the tomato basil soup. Seating outside in their Patio Garden is wonderful with lights and the moon glistening the night makes for a romantic dinner for two!"

  • "My wife and I loved this place and we couldn't have asked for a nicer evening. The service was great and the entire staff was very friendly and attentive. I had requested a quite table outside in the garden and ordered the romantic package . I was very pleased with it and my wife loved it. On our waiter's recommendation, I had the beef short ribs and my wife had the homemade fettuccini with crab legs. Both dishes were wonderful and the portion sizes were just right. The cocktails, wine and dessert were also perfect. We had a great evening and the next time we visit Beverly Hills , we will definitely come here again."

  • "Everyone loves the outdoor patio, but the small inside dining room is particularly charming. The outdoor patio can't avoid the noise of the traffic. They could also add to their wine list."

  • "We were a little disappointed, the only ones in a side room at 7pm while a wedding reception went on in adjacent garden, very loud.We found the menu limited, Food was average and pricy. The facility was not in the greatest of shape."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We arrived for our lunch reservation and we were greeted by two lovely hostesses and shown to a really nice table. From then on the experience was really disappointing. Our waiter was very in attentive at best. Although he was pleasant he was not good. We asked for water twice before it ever came. We asked for bread at least 2-3 times before that arrived. We ordered dessert and the wrong dessert was brought. Since I did not eat the dessert I did not even realize that one of the things brought was not even the dessert we ordered. When It was brought to my attention I told him about it and he merely said " oh, I'm sorry" and walked away. #fail"

  • "We had our wedding reception in the banquet room behind the bar 3 years ago. We come back at least yearly. The sweetheart table in the banquet area was available last year for our anniversary but not this year. We still had a nice experience and I paid for the rose petals and 2' long taper at our table. Several couples had the same idea. The ceiling is a large clear plastic tent with warm white christmas light strings and chandeliers. It sounds a little hokey but is very beautifu."

  • "The evening was very warm and friendly. This is one of the best things about the visit. The food was great, atmosphere beautiful and the total experience very pleasent."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Il Cielo is the most romantic spot in town! Charming garden, snow white tablecloths, beautiful chandeliers, and twinkling lights that make it feel like some kind of fairyland! The food is only part of the experience (try the buratta and heirloom tomatoes!) -- the ambience and the service are the other parts. A delightful place for any occasion -- or no reason at all, except to escape the city and have a delicious dinner with a staff that pampers you and responds to your every request!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I loved this restaurant because you feel like you're in italy and not LA. The staff was super warm and made us feel super welcome which is just as important as the fact that it had great food. A definite must see!"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "At Il Cielo Gardens one can definitely escape from fast paced LA and enjoy a quiet dining experience in a lovely setting. From one who has lived in LA for over 40 years, this place is appropriate for all age groups who are more concerned about their dining partners, good service and fine food... than a "scene"."

  • "Took my girlfriend to Il Cielo. It was our first night here (definitely going back again) they set the mood by offering packages that decorate your table IF you want to spice things up ;). The evening dinner is made even more special by their outdoor lighting makes the night that much more romantic and beautiful. Excellent service with waiters that KNOW their wines AND suggestions on their food specials. Overall extremely happy with everything about Il Cielo. They helped make the night that much more romantic than I had imagined. Definitely consider if you want elegance and romantic and the Whole package :) To quote my girlfriend "It really made me feel like a Queen""

  • "Never been to Il Cielo and was referred by a friend. We were running a tad late but that staff took care of us and we were able to have our meal. I believe one of the staff members who greeted us was a manager and he was continuously helping us and being very courteous. The appetizers were actually our favorite portion of the rprefix easter brunch. The smoked salmon was so fresh and did not leave any behind. The blueberry pancakes were amazing! Everything else was delicious and the servers tended to us in a timely manner. Will have to come back and experience the restaurant during the evening. "
