Unlike so many restaurants today--even good ones--the Cielo has tasteful background music played quietly. The service is polite and unassuming. The food is delicious. My wife had the slowly cooked lamb and I had the truffle pasta dish. I had an excellent seafood starter; she...More

Cozy restaurant near Mamilla Mall and hotels. We had basic Italian (antipasto, spaghetti, lasagna) that was excellent. Nice red and white wine selections. Nice place for a couple to celebrate a special occasion

Small 7 table place. Soups were very good although my minestrone was a bit salty. Shrimps dish was delicious, veal was good. Prices are more reasonable than the $$$-$$$$ on the rating. Decent wine list.

We visited Cielo on a Sabbath afternoon for lunch and quite frankly, it was a big disappointment for us. We were not only served half cooked potatoes, but also served very late (had to wait 50 minutes between starter n main course). Sub par quality...More

After a week of Kosher, Israeli food, my kids wanted Italian food. Cielo was recommended and we made a reservation early. We were the first ones on the restaurant at 7 and the door was locked but they opened it. We were seated promptly and...More

Not the first time I've been, though it was a few years ago, and I had pleasant memories. It's non kosher, mostly Italian and the ambience is very nice. I love French onion soup and love comparing them. This was middling. Two of us had...More
