This is truly the most beautiful restaurant in town if your looking for magical ambiance. We booked on Mother’s Day and wasn’t told that it’s a set menu for $100 per head. Frustrating not being able to order what we wanted for that price. Even dessert wasn’t delicious !!!
3 of us left very disappointed. Bill came to $400 with tax and tip .
I would never go again .
Sorry ! I wish you would have wowed me.

We’ve loved it Cielo for years. Usually the service is inline with il Cielo’s prestige but, chalk it up to the Covid, the wait staff may have to be retrained. In which dishes and flat wear to use and not to have to be reminded about requests.
However, the magic of the crystal garden makes the dining experience always enjoyable.

Made a reservation long time ago for 7
Called to reduce to 6 the day before as a courtesy and confirm
5 mns before arriving received a call to ask me if i was still coming! and when i got there we were shown to the worse table that was basically not even part of the restaurant like we were lepers!
Terrible and MOST embarrassing when you are entertaining people!
Thank you for a lousy evening

Everything was amazing except your Mgr. There was a Mgr on last night in a purple suit walking around not wearing a masking and drinking Starbucks. Your entire staff is masked up and wearing face shields??!!!! But this Mgr I guess is exempt from the state mandate. We had the octopus and burrata to start and the chicken and lamb for entrees. All of the food was amazing. But nothing more annoying than someone walking around a dinning room with a Togo cup of coffee not helping anyone just looking annoyed and maskless!!!!!

We loved the place! The food was delicious, although my husband said the sea food pasta was too watery... but the rest of us loved the dishes we ordered.
The outside sitting was very nice.
They have a 90 minute policy, which we did not follow... we finally went out for a nice dinner, so sorry if we stayed longer!

Had a reservation for two a couple of days ago. Was seated in the back (maybe they didn't have any tables upfront?). The back has a much different feel than the front - absolutely nothing "il celo" about it. Decorations in the back are dull, the "sky" factor is non-existent as compared to the front. Feels a lot more average.

Bigger issue was being seated next to what I assume was an event/party which reserved several tables, and was having a great time. They were really loud, and clearly drunk, not really selective with their words when having friendly loud conversations and having a good time (not blaming them for that). This definitely destroyed any feeling of a high-end, evening dining experience which Il Cielo claims to provide. I am honestly not interested in hearing dudes with Peroni beers in their hands laugh and yell, and act like they're in a bar/pub while trying to enjoy dinner and a conversation with my girlfriend.

Service was also subpar. Reservation was at 9PM, kitchen was closing around 10PM apparently. Dessert menu was brought at like 9:50, waiter came back 9:55 asking if we're ready, I said we probably need more time. He basically said that we better hurry up because kitchen is closing soon - okay, well, I just asked for his recommendation and went for it. Feeling rushed is not something I seek when dining in a place like that. Then, we ended up not being approached, seeing any waiters at our table or getting the check until like 10:50 when finally someone brought the check. At some point I was thinking whether they even forgot that we didn't pay yet. Overall, felt like the place was rushing to close down and it was time to wrap up the moment it was nearing 10pm.

Food was good however, no complaints about that and can't say anything negative. Got the seafood pasta, which felt fresh and well made, with a good variety of sea food. Girlfriend also enjoyed her pasta. Desserts were good too.

Il Cielo features wonderful Italian food. The grilled octopus is delightful, as are the appetizer salads. We prefer the pastas over the heavier entrees, but that's a judgment call. The food has always been excellent.

The restaurant, however, seems to be struggling with service issues related to reopening after Covid. Courses were brought to the table before others were cleared. Silverware was missing. Waiters came by multiple times to take orders for drinks and food without coordinating with their fellow workers. Perhaps this will all get sorted out in a few months, but for the price tab we are accustomed to better service at Il Cielo Gardens.

Was told on entering a romantic celebration for our 22nd anniversary, that we were limited to 1.5 hours and then we would have to leave. We ordered up the special rose pedal covered table and candle to make the evening special (lost on our hostess) which was very nice. We ordered a $140 bottle of wine and tried to order appetizers only first, but were told that its NOT allowed, only complete orders. So not a good start. We were left for awhile and then Antonio came back to take our appetizer order and our entree order. The appetizers were good but for entrees, my wife ordered the Risotto with Mushroom while I settled on the organic chicken with Marcepone mashed potatoes.
When our entrees arrived, I was stunned how overdone, dry and hard the chicken that sat atop the mashed potatoes. When I mentioned it to Antonio, he took it but the manager quickly returned saying that the chef saw it and said "that is how its supposed to be done" and suggested that I try another dish. I replied please just ask that he not over cook the chicken. It took over 40 minutes for them to bring me the replacement. My wife was done and although the replacement dish was very much improved, the evening had been ruined. I think Antonio felt badly for our celebration and did not charge for the rose pedal covered table or the chocolate moose cake that is part of their romantic package, but then he charged me 20% gratuity on our whole dinner and Wine. That was a very bad ending to the night and after coming here many times for celebrations, I am sorry to say that we will never return.

We had a birthday lunch, she felt so special! They had a tall candle for our table and rose petals sprinkled. It would have been an awesome romantic setting if it was a date! But for an all girls lunch it was very much appreciated!
As usual the food was amazing and presentation is always good. Thank you Il Cielo! You’re consistently on the top of my list

We decided to have a romantic dinner with my husband after a long time but this was a disappointment. My husband being Italian described it as "outdated" - not only the ambiance but the food also. Tuna tarter was nothing special, Lobster and mushroom risotto was overcooked. Sorry to say the only good thing was Tiramisu and red wine. Even though they have a nice patio, but we will no be going back.

One of the prettiest patios! What a lovely and serene place to dine. I would have preferred a little more diversity in the menu but I was happy with my choice. We recommend the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Service was flawless. Staff friendly and attentive. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We'll be back.

My go to has always been Il Pastio in BH but I wanted to try something different. Yelp said this restaurant was ranked first so I tried it out of curiosity. Food and service was mediocre. Not a lot to choose from. I think I’ll stick to Il Pastio from now. Setting was beautiful I must say. Great for pics but nothing else really.
