Il Cielo - Sanibel
Great mealWe had exceptional service and great food. We'd eat there again.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the ambiance and setting.Loved the ambiance and setting. It takes no time across the Sanibel bridge and it's right around the corner. We split an appetizer, a spinach salad, a special & the lemon pie. All very nice. Definitely recommended.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent in all waysEverything was excellent with the exception of a table that had several small children in attendance. These children were running through the restaurant and screaming. I love kids but for the price and ambience of this place the manager should have dealt with it for the sale of the other diners. Dined there on 4/14/134/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOur last night in sanibelOur last night in sanibel and the best restaurant of the trip. Service was excellant, food was fresh and well prepared. The manager took the time to stop at the table.
Recommended it to two other couples that same evening4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA Real Find on Sanibel IslandWow! What a terrific find on Sanibel. We come down to South Seas Resort on Captiva every year. Often we cross the bridge to the larger island to gain access to fine dining options. El Celio is a welcome addition. Not far from the bridge to Ft. Myers so accessible to those folks as well. My wife found Il Celio on Open Table. She chose it for my birthday dinner and the staff jumped in enthusiastically; even signing to me at one point. We saw the young executive chef several times and raved about the seafood (grouper with crusted crab topping),steak (excellent cut of filet cooked to perfection)and ________. The carrot soup was excellent as were the oysters. Desserts (mine with candle)were freshly made and yummy. Service was the true highlight4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and beverageWonderful food and beverage menus. Outstanding service. Has some patio seating and Wifi.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding ExperienceWe have been here several times and the experiences have all been the same outstanding. The service, food and wine were exceptional and it pleases us to have a restaurant like this open on Sanibel. We highly recommend this restaurant to all vistors and residents to Sanibel.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant Find - IL CieloDidn't know what to expect on Sanibel as many of the places offer Grouper 5 ways. Was verh pleasanty surprised by the all it had to offer. The space is a beautiful room with a very nice bar. Table was nicely set. Service was very attentive without hovering. Ordered an app, the daily special and an entree off of the menu for two of us. All three were excellently executed but all needed a touch of salt and I rarely if ever salt my food. We ordered a bottle of wine which had sold out. The server came to the table to tell us that while it was sold out he would happily substitute an upgrade for the same price. BRAVO!!! Running out of a wine or not updating the list comes the customers expense. All in all very positive experience3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIf the evening is warm enoughIf the evening is warm enough you can sit out on the porch which is nice.Delicious meal and leslie. our server was awesome!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed a delicious meal.AlthougWe enjoyed a delicious meal.Although the name is Italian it really isn't serving Italian food but great menu anyway.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMIl Cielo is Woderful!Il Cielo was a magnificent experience. Contained in a stately mansion in Sanibel, the feeling was warm and homey. As a martini lover, my basil-infused vodka martini with caper and olive juice was over the top. The wine choices were wide and varied. The menu was imaginative, and our simple openers of tomato bisque and Caesar salad were on target. Our entrees, shrimp and grits, and crab encrusted blackened grouper were amazing! The service was ideal, and a return trip is definitely in order! There is also a Cloud 9 bar menu for lighter fare. A fabulous dinner!!3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, serive and experienceThe food, serive and experience was outstanding. The dishes that we had were prepared were right on target.
