It had been a couple of years since my wife and had the chance to dine at Il Cielo - it had been our anniversary go-to spot. After a few years away, we decided to return to one of the "most romantic places" in Los Angeles, and we were not disappointed. Despite it being Valentines Day weekend, there was no drop off in service or ambiance. Some places in the city tend to overbook or overdo themselves on special occasions, but that was not the case this weekend at Il Cielo. The food, as always, was delicious, but the service is what we will remember the most. Again, despite the restaurant being fairly packed because of the "holiday," our host Pascuale and our server Marco were incredible - friendly, welcoming, and full of great recommendations for both food and drink. They made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant, which was really nice. I can't say that we can afford to go there all the time, but we certainly aren't going to stay away so long.

Great ambiance. Awesome staff. We went for the V Day dinner. Not good. Food was sub-par to say the least. I will go back to try it during normal business hours because of all the positive reviews. But our food was not good. I got the filet. My fiancé ordered the Chilean she bass. Both were way over cooked. Two great dishes ruined bc they were probably sitting on the kitchen warmer somewhere in the kitchen. Not worth the $ 400 we spent. I’ll go elsewhere next year.

Ambiance is the wonderful, especially on the front patio. Food is very good, although pricey.
Wine list is very pricey, with few choices at the lower end although you can do well if you know your wines. Even thought the place was not at all crowded, we had to wait an inordinately long time for our waiter to bring menus, ask if we would like wine, bring the check and then take the credit card payment, which we finally gave to the manager as waiter was nowhere to be found.

Took my girlfriend here for our anniversary, we dressed very nice and I'm not sure if it was whether we looked young (we are both 25) or whether it was due to the fact that we both are not white, but the service was sub par the entire night. We walk in the door and I had to greet the host instead of them greeting me, we were seated at probably the worst table in the restaurant (right next to the entrance, with the highest amount of traffic). It was about 15 minutes before we got any menus, not even a drink menu, but one of the water guys came and gave us two glasses. When we finally got service it felt like our waiter thought we couldn't afford anything on the menu, so I ordered the most expensive champagne to spite him. Got one check in after our food came and I had to ask a busser for the check since our waiter was no where to be found. Overall the food was excellent and the environment is very romantic, especially the outdoor seating. To me the service is half the experience and can ruin a dinner, I wouldn't recommend this place for that reason.

The overall sentiment would be "underwhelming". The restaurant is marketed as the most romantic restaurant in LA, but in reality the service is ok, the food is bland & overpriced and the atmosphere is tacky at best.

Memorable for the poor service--had to wait then flag down manager for menus, cocktail order, and water. Never received bread. Long delay between order and meals being placed on table. Waiter should tell ordering guest that special fish would cost $58.

Expect the poor service was a function of a private party, but that is no excuse.

Excellent Italianate food in a romantic surrounding. Our server did an amazing job of filleting the branzino which was cooked to perfection. One of LA's romantic restaurants with an indoor/outdoor feel.

Sitting outside under the plastic cover with the tinkling lights set a great mood. Also fitting 8 of us at a round table encouraged total conversation among the group and service was food too. This is a perfect place for a romantic dinner.
The food was very good

We dined at Il Cielo as part of this month's dineLA program. I hadn't been to this restaurant in a number of years, and my husband had never been there. I forgot just how beautiful the restaurant is. Our 3 course meal was wonderful (almost too much to eat) and the setting was divine. A very romantic atmosphere!

Unfortunately past it’s prime. Had 5:30 reservations & got there 5:25 & valet parking attendant still had not arrived, so my husband parked around the corner himself. Asked if it was ok to park there a& employees didn’t have a clue. Seated approx 5:40 & waiters were still putting table cloths on tables. Food OK, definitely NOT great. Would NOT go there again!

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!
