It is unreasonable to expect everything to go perfectly on a restaurant day as over-subscribed as Mother's Day, but Il Cielo came very close. One should not begrudge overly enthusiastically animated children and grandchildren from making their love for their mothers and grandmothers known rather loudly, so we assumed that would be the case and had no issue with it. We went for a late brunch: the lamb shank was superb, the salmon entree good, the burrata salad adequate, and the chopped salad was excellent. Again, on such a busy day, this was well above my expectations. The real standout, however, was our server Massimo: a true star. On the basis of his subtle charm, non-intrusive attentiveness, and extremely affable demeanor we will have to start patronizing Il Cielo at lunchtime (his shift) in addition to or instead of our usual dinners there. He was absolutely fantastico!

They take care of only people they personally know. They had a open table outside and didn't seat us because they saved it for someone that they know. 15 mins after telling us they have absolutely nothing outside, they seated another party. Hairs were nasty, all sticky, and when I asked to clean it, they knocked off our flowers, didn't even turn to say sorry. Will not go back there again.

Absolutely spectacular night and I cannot recommend this place enough. The atmosphere was beautiful and the lights are gorgeous! I came with a large party and we were well taken care of by the waiter not to mention the great food. I highly recommend the seafood pasta and the tiramisu! Il Cielo helped make my special night even more special.

I had the salmon and several at our table had the lamb chops. All of the food was excellent and the ambience was exquisite. The twinkle lights above and the rose petals on the table were perfect. We were celebrating a birthday and told Il Cielo in advance. The waiters were so attentive to all of us and pampered our birthday girl with lots of attention. It was a Saturday night, but we were not hurried at all and the noise level was so low we could talk easily across the table for our group of six. We had such a a leisurely dinner and celebrated with long conversations over cappuccinos and dessert. Il Cielo's entire staff could not have been more solicitous, polite and efficient. We will return again soon.

A magical experience. From the moment you enter you’re surrounded by an elegance and romance. Everything from the flowers, lights and table settings to the chairs, creates a scene of sweetness and beauty. The hostess and servers are all gracious, kind and accommodating. If you’re vegetarian or gluten free, you’re in luck! Just ask :)

I had requested a good table for my wife’s birthday well in advance. We got stuck with a terrible table that kept wobbling and was in non ideal location. They didn’t remember that it was her birthday and the food was highly over priced and not up to the standard they charge. The desserts were amazing and the waiter was top notch! Fairly disappointed in our experience.

The overall service, in terms of the wait-staff were great, very kind and fast service. However the host and GM (I think he was the GM or a manager of some kind) specifically were quite rude. The host was possibly a bit flustered when we walked in but he rudely asked if I had confirmed the reservation I had made weeks earlier. I said I had not relieved a message to confirm but I was happy to wait in the bar as it was sorted. We didn't end up waiting very long.

The food was great over all - the portions were a bit small, but it tasted fantastic. My partner ordered a dish that was quite good - we both tried it and then the waiter offered Parmesan so my partner said yes. The GM came over moments later and made a joke about wanting to reach across and smack my partner for putting cheese on his dish. We both made an awkward laugh and the man kept talking about how the cheese took away from the flavor and how we should have tried it first.

My partner and I have both worked in restaurants so we understand how sometimes things get busy and maybe the GM just ran out of things to talk about. But not only was he rude, he just wouldn't let it go. It was a bit much.

All in the all the food tasted great, the wait staff was great, the management was not; however, we were both pretty hungry when we left (after 2 appetizers, 2 main dishes and dessert) so we went home and ordered a pizza.

Came here for dinner with my gf and the entrance was divine. Overall service was great and food was delicious, definitely try to get one of the pastas as they were out of this world! Only issue I found was that I had ordered the rose petals special but that wasn’t received at the right time and instead in the middle of the dinner when I asked for it, but they did remove the cost. However, it wasn’t as special a moment I would have liked. All in all however, it is a great place and I would definitely go back again.

A really great experience. Wonderful atmosphere and service. We made classic Italian cuisine. The only deficiency was one of the pasta dishes was served warm and not hot. It was al dente though and the other pasta dish was perfect. Fine reasonably priced wine also.

The portion of the food is very very small, the money they charge is very high for the quantity they serve. when my waiter brought the food, he said, "I know the portion is very small. " After I left the restaurant by paying almost $ 200.00 for 2 people, both of us went to subway and got 2 sandwiches. The y should pay more attention to this matter, generally speaking is a good place.
