I think this is a very nice place to come for good quality food. They are very solid and dependable.
Great meal at a great value. It's a Staff was great! It's a small place that seems to fill up fast. So, be sure to make a reservation.
We went there on a Friday night and the food is good, atmosphere is good. We will consider going again.
Don't let this little out of the way place fool you, the food was great! The lobster ravioli was a good portion for the price and I would go back for the flavor. They could definitely use a makeover on the interior. Restaurant Impossible would tear the décor apart and the cleanliness of the dining room I hope is not reflective of the kitchen-- regardless, I eat out for service and food and this place delivered on both. I was a little worried when I saw our disheveled 20-something waiter but getting past his appearance, he delivered superior service. I explained I wanted to dine at least two hours and not to rush the 4 courses I ordered. He deliver perfectly planned out service. JUST MANGEMENT, CLEAN THE CEILING AND KILL THE FANS!
I have dined here several times Each visit was very good. The service is always very good Any dish that I or my guests have tried were always on the mark.
Not our first time dining here, but as always the food was wonderful and the wait staff absolutely incredible. I highly recommend asking for Hunter, but if he's not available anyone else is great too!! The food is incredible and that includes the bread and soups. I can't speak highly enough about this restaurant!!!
We had a group of former vocational school employees who haven't seen each other in many years. Got together for lunch and talk. Atmosphere was quiet and very conducive to talking. Good lunch, very nice server who was very helpful. We had a very nice time and the location and square set up of our table in a small alcove was perfect for our needs.
This is not the first time dining at Il Cielo's and definitely not the last. Great food and wonderful atmosphere for a nice get together with girlfriends. The fact that it's local and BYOB, make it all the better. Till the next time............
We came in for an early dinner and all of us said we found it very enjoyable I think we stayed from 4:30 to 7 sipping our wines and enjoying the food. Once again, I have to say the food is certainly in that 3 1/2 to 4 star range that makes for a great casual dining experience (and also a very good value for money).
To Dave and staff...as always, we had a delicious meal and wonderful service. SpeciAl kudos to our server, Katie. She has high energy and does her job perfectly. Love, love, love IL Cielo.
