  • "Garden seating. Service was good, though I had to ask for bread, and it came cold. Due to cramped area, waiter kept serving from wrong side and serving across everybody's face. Annoying while we are talking. But attentive, polite, friendly service. Ceasar salad, calamari salad, spinach salad, tomato soup were excellent. mushroom ravioli was tasty but heavy. Salmon was good. Papardelle was excellent. The warm chocolate torta takes 15 min. Make sure you order early. Tiramisu and pana cota good."

  • "I met two extraordinary women for dinner last Friday and this place is absolutely spectacular. From the hostess, the waiters and the constant catering to our table with extreme professionalism, our business dinner turned out to be very productive. We were able to discuss our future projects without the noise and interruptions that a normal restaurant has. The ambiance is elegant and the food is just perfect! I highly recommend Il Cielo Gardens Restaurant for business, romantic dinner or just because."

The food was fantastic as was the service. We both raced afterwards that it was the best way Valentines Day we had ever had."

  • "I was here a few nights ago with family to celebrate my sisters birthday. I was amazed at how beautiful it was outside, with the chandeliers hanging and the flowers everywhere. The garden type environment and the house the resteraunt is made out of makes you feel comfortable. It's super romantic but having a family dinner there worked great too. The food was sooo good, I had the steak which was cooked medium rare and was perfect. The lamb chops are a must! Overall I can definitely say I'm going to Il Cielo again."

  • "We had a great table outside in the courtyard I guess, our waiter was fantastic, atmosphere would be great other than adjacent tables in hot discussions which was amusing but spoiled the occasion."

  • "It was a wonderful evening celebrating with friends and family on the beautiful patio. Everyone enjoyed it."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Although most of the other reviews and our hotel concierge described Il Cielo as a "romantic restaurant", our pre-teens thoroughly enjoyed their dinner there.We sat on the front patio, which is enclosed by a clear plastic canopy decorated with hundreds of white lights, which created a great ambiance and looks fantastic as the backdrop in pictures. The service was friendly and professional, and the food consistently very good, with a few interesting touches such as fried rose petals with cinnamon on my desert plate. I thought the food prices were quite reasonable, although the wine list seemed to have a fairly limited selection under $75. Most of the other diners were couples, but we felt very welcome with younger children."

  • "One of the best Italian restaurants. Staff are very friendly and they were every where. We set in the patio which was quite and we'll decorated with lights. Main lobster and rib eye were okay, but I highly recommend sea bass or any other Italian menu."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "All of our dishes were tasty and nicely prepared. Something happened in the kitchen as it took way too long for our main dishes to come up. Overall, a silver medal but not yet a gold."

  • "Had a women's birthday lunch and it was loved by all. Food, waiters, ambience were all delightful."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "If you want to sit out in the patio, you must request for it otherwise you'll be dining in their back room, which is pretty tight and you can hear your neighbor conversations. Our wait or was not that friendly. He rarely smiled at us until we asked him about himself. He was from Italy. The did was mediocre for the price we paid ( braised short ribs was too sweet. The scallop fettuccine was better than the braised shirt ribs, but it wasn't great). In the end, we will not be back again."

  • "I took my mother out for a dineLA lunch because the lady deserves all the niceties in the world. She's pretty fastidious - in terms of cleanliness, service, food freshness and she doesn't like to go out in the evenings. So, I found Il Cielo! We were greeted by a friendly hostess and taken to our seats inside (as I requested on the OpenTable reservation). Our server was excellent! He was very attentive without being obtrusive and he spoke a bit of Korean to my mother, which she appreciated. The food was beautifully presented. We had the antipasto and pear salad (super amazing veggies). My mother loved her white fish Dessert looked scrumptious and the molten lava cake was delicious! I am recommending this place to my brother and friends!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Was there for 3 course special Dine LA pricing. Food was good, but nothing inventive. Was seated in back room of restaurant - not the front or back patio/greenhouse areas. Service was attentive. Wine list only had 8 glasses (including sparkling) of wines to choose from - rest are bottles. Big negative was the rush. We were in and out in 1.5 hrs. And we lingered. We would have been out of there in 1 hr if the way our food was rushed thru set our pace. Next course was there before folks were set down... felt pressured. Also, I ordered chocolate 'souffle' at beginning of meal to get a chocolate molten 'lava' cake (dense cake with liquid chocolate center)- that is not a souffle (light, airy, served in a croc of sort to keep it from falling)."

  • "We have often seen this lovely restaurant & kept promising to visit, and now we can't wait to return and treat special guests. The entire restaurant is visually stunning, there is adequate space between tables for a romantic date, and the staff is absolutely lovely and attentive. The food was superb and beautifully presented, and we took advantage of L.A. Restaurant Week's price fix menu for a spectacular evening--from appetizers to extraordinary dessert.The wine list is extensive, and the wine steward was knowledeable, so our wine was exceptional. Although the patio is outdoors, it is in a tent that kept the temperature comfortable. The price was reasonable for the quality of the experience. We highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "This gem of Los Angeles has always been great and this week's dinner met our expectations. The braised short ribs and salmon were delicious. Split Pea soup amazing! Salmone Sfogliatina perfection. Wonderful food with the best ambience and service. It is possibly to most beautiful restaurant in Los Angeles. A must for a romantic dinner."
