    A hidden LA gem - why is it not on all of the top ten lists? I visited this restaurant last night with my friend and we had the most amazing food and drinks. The staff were amazing and they totally allowed us to create options for our dinner. The food was exceptional and we preferred it to the Michelin star food we had experienced the day before. We cannot recommend enough. I’m just glad I got lost on my previous LA trip and fell upon this restaurant. Definitely worth a trip there! Thank you for an amazing evening. Will be back!!!

    Il Cielo is our "go to" special occasions restaurant and it lived up to its reputation once again. The venue is romantic, the service, while a bit slow, was impeccable and the food, outstanding. Although not listed on the menu, a veal chop was made available, as well as roasted chicken and beefsteak, all well prepared. The chocolate heart birthday cake was the topper of the evening. We'll be back for the next big occasion

    Very lovely garden restaurant, the food was very good. Service was very prompt initially, fell off at the end. I would come back for a special occasion as it is a little pricey. The flourless chocolate cake and presentation is awesome.

    We were seated promptly, in the garden as per our request. The tables were separated by a veil of garden vines and shrubs, which provided some visual but not acoustic privacy. We could hear our neighbors conversation, but they seemed unaware of us. Him: I love you so much.. Her: I know. Left shortly after. Be that as it may, the people here are beautiful. The staff seem all to be bilingual, at least, Italian-English. Service impeccable. Food wonderful. Wine list outstanding. A great place to eat, much more character and color than the nearby Culinary, which is merely excellent. We will eat here again.

    Covid has narrowed our list of special event restaurants but Il Cielo remains! The beautiful front patio is perfect for outdoor dining. The menu, though small, is filled with delicious options, and there is always the possibility that the chef can find other options, like a veal chop or two, that aren’t listed. What can I say? The branzino was wonderful , the roast chicken delicious, and the chocolate birthday cake passed around the table was the perfect end of the meal. Expensive, yes, but we keep coming back for more

    We just had the most enjoyable lunch at El Cielo. I haven’t been here for a few years and I’m so happy they survived Covid and have kept up the same standards. The service was amazing from the valet to the hostess to the server to the busboys. The food was delicious - the pailllard and the Niçoise salad and the dessert were all exquisite! Even the bread was delicious. I was happy to have an Il Cielo Bellini after so many years and promise to come back soon! Highly recommend coming her for lunch, dinner or for booking a party which I have done in the past.

    The pasta was amazing. Tonnarelli ai frutti di mare. 10/10 hands down. I was born and raised in Roma, 36 years there and then I moved to LA. This was the best seafood pasta I had here in LA. The octopus appetizer honestly not amazing, good but nothing special. I still give 5 stars because of the location. The place is simply amazing. So romantic and wonderful. Amazing wines also.

    Beautiful! I had a big Birthday scheduled there a few years ago and they cancelled it because someone booked the whole restaurant. I was super disappointed and told my boyfriend I wanted to go some day - so two years later we finally went. We celebrated my Dad (1st anniversary of his passing). It was beautiful and delicious and I loved the service. It's my Birthday up soon so hope to get there again:)

    Il Cielo is a very pretty restaurant with a lovely outdoor patio. I have been going here for years and also had a big 75 birthday celebration there with 60 people. However, I feel it has really gone downhill food wise. Last night I ordered a tuna Tatar and a Ceasar salad. The tuna was $28. And the salad $18. My husband and our friend each ordered the bucatini Amatriatra for $36. Each and our friend had the bursts and tomato salad which was $20. I had a volka martini and the men each a glass of red wine. With tip dinner cost $300. I mention the cost of dinner only because the food was less than ordinary. My salad looked like it came from a diner so missing was it’s presentation. The pasta was very heavily sauced and just ok. The tuna tartar was uninspired and boring. I was going to bring my own wine and called in advance to ask what their corkage fee was. I was told it was $45. which, btw is outrageously high. When I pay )100./person for dinner, the food should be really good. In my opinion it was less than average. Very unfortunate because the ambiance and the waitstaff are very good. The chef, not so much.

    The setting was absolutely amazing. Only thing is I would expect to be greater by the host a little bit nicer. It was my boyfriends birthday and the host gave the dryest “Happy birthday” with an attitude. And then sat us on all the way in the back even though other seating was available. We weren’t checked on pretty often and had to ask for water all the time. Other than that the scenery was great.

    First time back since mid may. Four of us this time. 3 had Cesare Salad where you can’t go wrong. My wife ordered a salad and specifically asked for the parmigiana cheese on the side. Unfortunately the s Cheese was mixed in the salad. She picked the cheese out rather than send it back. My wife and son had the pasta with wild boar. As usual, it was amazing. I has the risotto with porcini mushrooms. It also was great. My daughter had the Teri colored pasta which she said was good. Will definitely go back soon

    My date and I found parking nearby and there’s also valet. The outdoor patio area is much prettier at night. We went and was seated up against the side of a building and so there were tiny bugs crawling on the table cloth that ended up biting my date around his ankles. Luckily, I was not attacked but before sitting down I saw a little bug on the seat and flicked it off before sitting down. The Yelp page had a lot of photos of food that are no longer on the menu, unfortunately. The good part is the service is great and our waiter customized my meal to include Clam Linguini with White Wine sauce which is why I picked the restaurant to begin with. I would sit inside or the center of the patio area if you want to be comfortable. The speghetti my date ordered was not amazing. He said he has had better. He was trying to play it safe and ordered that instead of another dish.

    The bread was very stale. For an appetizer, we ordered calamari, which was a special, and it was.not! It was warm, not hot and very chewy. Our entrees took a long time to arrive and the appetizer had never been cleared. The person delivering the entrees made no effort to do so. When I asked him to he said someone else would be by to do it. We ordered a dessert which we had enjoyed before—it was not the one that said allow 15 minutes—but after 15 minutes it had still not arrived so we flagged down our waiter and told him to cancel it. All in all, not a wonderful dining experience

    Faites très attention lors de votre addition, les pourboires sont déjà inclus dans gratuity. Il y a une ambiguïté car il vous indique en dessous du montant total les pourboires en pourcentage à donner. Vous pouvez alors penser qu’il ne sont pas inclus et payer en double, ce qui m’est arrivé car je ne parle pas l’anglais. Évidemment le serveur ne m’a absolument rien dit!!!. Maintenant je le sais.
