Server was very polite. Food came out hot and tasty. Sat outside and enjoyed the view of beach. Server's recommendation of the Panko Breaded Salmon was spot on!

My husband and I visited the Atascadero area and stopped at Cielo for dinner. My husband had the lasagna and I had the chicken alfredo. Both dishes were well prepared. The lasagna was more flavorful than the chicken alfredo. The chicken alfredo could use more seasoning and fresh parsley on top. The service was fabulous, prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was lovely. I would stop here again for dinner.

Three of us had brunch at Ciao Papi and it was great. The ambiance is very up-scale, with super comfy banquets overlooking the pool. The food was delicious. Between us we had the avocado toast, croissant sandwich and a pizza, which were all delicious. Our server, Rocky, was delightful. I can’t wait to go back next time I’m in town, but I’m sure it will be harder to get a reservation once word gets out.
