Another delightful lunch at Il Cielo. Such a charming place, with excellent service and marvelous food. So nice to dine in a pleasant place with no loud music blaring and ruining conversation. Loved the piped-in classic jazz vocals. So very appropriate for the type of restaurant. And just the right sound level. Magnifique!

I was reccomended by my sister and WOW was I impressed. From the valet guys, to the host, to the buzz boys, to the waiter. What an incredible night. It couldn't been more perfect. The food and the drinks were amazing. Overall 10/10!!!!
Thank you guys for making that night a one to remember! 👍🏼

Such a beautiful place! All the trees have little white lights and it is so romantic. But the food is extraordinary: my homemade pasta dish with little clams was served with a delicious light cream sauce and my friend's salmon was perfectly grilled. We split a beet salad (it was so big neither one of us could have eaten an entire one) and had pear martinis. It was my friend's birthday so we ordered an apple tart and the chef wrote "Happy Birthday" in chocolate on the dish and served it with a candle. Delightful!

Service and ambience always amazing. Love the fact that you can easily converse with dining companion(s). Noise level is never a problem. Food is not extraordinary, but certainly not bad. Will continue to frequent as the service and atmosphere cannot be beat.

A hidden gem. In Beverly Hills. Our food came out nice and hot and perfectly prepared. Our server did an amazing job of filleting our fish. The ambience is quiet and romantic, and the outdoor area is perfect in pleasant weather.

Went to Il Cielo for our anniversary dinner. We sat in the patio and it is absolutely adorable. The ambience of the place was perfect for our romantic dinner, the lights, the music and the service all went hand in hand. The food is also great! After our meal we got dessert and it was also delicious. Certainly a place I would gladly visit again.

Truly outstanding dinner. My friends from Ft Lauderdale had recommended the restaurant - it surpassed our high expectations. Our guests were wowed! The ambiance is very unique and romantic and the menu was great, so many tempting choices. Food was high quality and delicious. Staff was friendly, attentive and unobtrusive.
A five star night all around. Just go and enjoy!

We sat outside on a beautiful day at a lovely table with linens, glassware, etc. The service was perfect--as it always is in my experience here. My guest and I both ordered the 1/2 shell broiled lobster salad which was good, but not outstanding. With half again the amount of lobster (it
rendered about 4 small bites) and a bit more flavor in the dressing, it would have been worth the price ($22). However, overall it was a very enjoyable experience and I will look forward to my next return.

great place. I thought it was pricey for dinner for portion size. However, I will go back. It was worth the drive. The place was amazing and the staff wonderful. We were not rushed and was able to enjoy a quiet dinner. we will try their lunch very soon.

One of my favorite restaurants in LA. Great for a date, friend's get-together, etc. Not for kids, but beautiful setting. Also excellent for a shower. Lovely space and peaceful. Sanctuary in LA. Food was excellent (I had the lobster salad). Massimo, our server, is top notch.

My wife and I went here for the first time for our 15 year anniversary. The owner was very personable and the ambiance is what you go for. As others have mentioned; the food is good but not great. Everything we had was good except for my entree.
It was a special that evening; giant prawns with linguini. If the chef had tasted this dish, he would never have let it get out of the kitchen. It had a gritty, dirt feel to it; like bad scallops. When I mention it to the waiter, he told me that it was the tyme in the dish. It made me feel better enough to finish the dish, but I was not thoroughly enjoying it. When the bill came, I saw that it was a $48 entree! I nearly spit out my wine. DEFINITELY not worth the $48; maybe $28.
Service was good. Wine list was very adequate. Based on the value to food, I would probably not repeat going. It was nice to experience it once, but the bad entree kinda killed it for me. At these prices, they should be more careful with what comes out of the kitchen. It's been around for 30 years and I'm sure it will be around for another 30.

Il Cielo has the best ambiance in Los Angeles: you sit outdoors with lots of trees trimmed in small white lights, and this is so romantic and pretty! The food is outstanding: home made pastas with tasty, imaginative sauces beautifully presented with wonderful accompanients. My guests from Chicago were terribly impressed and want to return on their next visit. My branzino was perfectly cooked and my guests' steaks were also. Desserts were out of this world. Love it here.

the restaurant is beautiful and the service was fine and our waiter presented us with a lovely dessert for our anniversary. I think I was expecting more in the quality of the food, it wasn't bad just not really good. And I have to be honest that I had had an amazing lunch at The Ivy at the Shore on the same day, and it was proabably just too much good food in one day.

Our server would constantly walk away mid sentence and never came back to our table unless I motioned to him several times. Reading the specials and taking our orders took extra long as he was socializing with other servers while serving us.

I took my wife here for her birthday and both of us had salmon. It was so good . The restaurant was very nice and they has great services too. It's good for going on a date or for a great romantic night with your spouse/partner.
