Fantastic ambiance and excellent service. We ordered the filet mignon and Maine lobster. Both were great.

My wife and I celebrated our 2nd year anniversary at il Cielo. We had a wonderful time and exquisite food.

I am not much of a romantic, but my wife insisted, “I want romance”, thank God for such a beautiful restaurant! My wife was happy. And sure enough, happy wife; happy wife.

My pasta was mediocre at best, I had the tortelli and it was very rubbery. My mom had the branzino and it was tasty but the waiter who filleted it table side didnt really do a great job so there wasnt much fish left afterwards and there were a lot of bones in it. Tiramisu was delicious though so at least there was that!

Picked the restaurant for my birthday dinner based on reviews and my love for all things truffle. The ambience was beautiful and romantic. We were seated on the warm covered patio which was dimly lit by string lights. The wait staff was very friendly and pleasant. Everyone we came in contact with had a smile on their face and they were happy and helpful. I first ordered the Il Pomodoro which was a super delicious creamy tomato based soup with crab. For my main, the chef created a rich truffle pasta for me that was not on the menu. It was simple but so yummy and satisfied my craving for that earthy truffle taste. My boyfriend ordered the lobster pasta which came with a full lobster on top! very beautiful presentation. A birthday well spent! I would make the trip from OC to LA again any time for this place!

We arrived a bit early and were seated at once. We had requested an inside table near the fireplace and were accommodated. Beautiful decor with twinkling lights, mirrors, etc. We were there to celebrate our anniversary (#36). Easy to have a quiet conversation and the setting is very romantic. Our server, Luis, was excellent- on the spot for any need. Their famous focaccia bread is heavenly. The wine list is pretty extensive. We were presented with a lovely heart-shaped chocolate flourless cake with with a chocolate mousse to celebrate. A wonderful, memorable evening.

This is a great romantic authentic Italian restaurant. The food and service were excellent. It is charming and romantic and the bonus is you can walk across the street to the Four Seasons before or after. I had the lobster risotto which was superb but it was also $40.00. And a glass of Chardonnay was $16.00 So benprepared to spend. The ambience and food will not disappoint.

We had a wonderful time here. Fun setting inside - it is an older house with the front yard converted to a restaurant and there was some seating inside as well. We had a small table for 2 and they use plants to establish at bit more intimacy at the tables where it makes sense.
The food was great - some of the best tuna I have had with the appetizer. Ceasar Salad was tasty and we both had the special which was a lobster pasta - we both loved it.
Would certainly recommend this as a date night/romantic evening restaurant.

The service, while usually perfect was a little off. Busboys were attentive and awesome, but waiter seemed stretched thin. Waited for lemon whole our fish got cold. Dirty dishes sat on table. This is unusual for this restaurant, so we will definitely return.

I can't even remember having experienced such bad service in my life.
We had a reservation for 5:30pm. Showed up at 5pm were seated at 6:15pm, meanwhile the whole restaurant was empty.
The staff was very unfriendly because we were there with kids. If your restaurant is not kids friendly then please have a sign outside, we don't serve kids!
I can't recommend this place at all.
The food was ok, but not amazing. They brought us bread after we had to ask. Our server only came by to get the order and then we never saw him again until they removed the plates and we asked him for the bill. they didn't even ask us if we want to drink. Honestly, it was not a pleasant experience dinning there. I would not want to go back there again. We were treated like second class people bc we were there with kids. Its too bad, this restaurant def lost a couple of customers.

We were looking for an early dinner after working in the area and found reservations here. I read a few of the reviews that were favorable so we took a chance, the reviews did say it was pricey. Right off the bat it was a turnoff. They paraded us by the nice but EMPTY tables in the front and deposited us in the very back where the most nauseating fishy smell was originating. After asking for a new table we were escorted to a new table with an explanation that the heater had not been used all year and that was the smell. Yuck! The food was average, i had the 5 tortellini on a plate which were flavorless and small my wife the tagliatelle with boar, should have said “bore” . The service was poor. We felt tables with regulars got most the attention while leaving us asking over and over for items all with an eye roll from the waiter. You won’t get new regulars with this type of service I promise you. I for one will not be back. Too many wonderful options in the neighborhood.

This place is ideal for a romantic dinner...lovely outdoor seating. The reason I would not recommend it is that it is too overpriced. While our dinners were very good, they were not memorable, and the service was average. There are other delicious restaurants with excellent service at this price point-or less-in Los Angeles to recommend this place to our friends. That being said, you can't beat the romantic setting.

Truly a wonderful experience at Il Cielo. We recently moved to California and the pressure was on for my first wedding anniversary so I was nervous picking this place without knowing anything about it really. Fortunately for me, our experience was amazing! This place overflows with ambiance, offers great wine, and the food is on point. Every single bite was delightful. It's been 3 days and the wife is still talking about what a great time she had here, even that this might be her favorite meal she's ever had. Now I just have to figure out how I sustain this level of perfection for the anniversaries to come!

I love this place! The personnel were extremely friendly and attentive. Our waiter even recommended a drink for me and said if I didn't like it, I wouldn't be charged and id get another drink of my choice for free (Of course I loved it though). The food was very good. I got the romance package which included a long candle, rose petals, and dessert with a script of my choice. Everything was perfect and my date loved it as well.
