I like this restaurant, a modern take on Italian food but it’s lacking something that I can’t quite put my finger on.
It’s expensive which with the restaurant been half empty probably reflex why, average bottle of wine is £27 and the bill for 2 came to £114.
Staff are friendly and full of smiles which is always welcome.
I will be back but maybe leave it to work expenses!

Great food but the service could be better. They ask if everything is ok but if you have an issue they seem to be completely uninterested in solving it. Like why are you even asking if you’re not going to do anything about it? My girlfriend’s cocktail had too much ice in it making it so and watered down and when she pointed this out instead of replacing they just shrugged it off 🤷🏾‍♀️ that was after asking if we were happy with everything. Could be better. So only giving it 3 stars.

Such a lovely restaurant. The staff welcomed us warmly and made sure our experience was the best it could possibly be. There was a delay in bringing our drinks so they put them on the house which was very kind and generous. The food is absolutely amazing. I would really recommend this restaurant.

We had the bottomless Prosecco and even on a fixed menu there was plenty of choice. The food was fabulous and the glasses were frequently refilled. Had a great night

I have already emailed the restaurant with my complaints. Very disappointed at what was meant to be a special birthday meal. The food was below standard compared to other dining experiences elsewhere. Lack of flavour, unbattered calamari, overdone duck, tasteless duck bon bon, no seasoning. The skin on the duck was still fatty, not crispy at all. Food not matching the menu, peaches not caramelised seemed like they were straight out of a tin. No liquer taste in the tiramasu. For the prices charged, we expected the food to be a lot better. Very disappointed.

Cielo serve excellent fayre
The meal was exceptional and the service matched the food
It was a memorable lunch because of the quality of the food rather than the occasion
Scallops perfectly cooked and presented and lamb that melted in the mouth
The wine list although limited in choice was interesting and the Cabernet Sauvignon that was served with the meal was an extremely good wine at a reasonable price

Myself, my partner and my Nan enjoyed a gorgeous Sunday lunch at Cielo on Sunday and the food and service were exceptional as previously experienced at this establishment. The Sunday lunch is excellent value for the quality and portion size of the food provided and I cannot recommend them enough. The service was exceptional they couldn't do enough to please us! Cannot wait to go back!

The food was good. However the service was not, plates were not cleared before the next course arrived. At no stage during the meal we’re we asked if our food was satisfactory.
The restaurant is nice with a good ambiance and is very good value for money.

The food was excellent but a reduced level of service detracted somewhat from the overall experience. Unfortunately there was another extremely loud party in the restaurant at the same time, which was a little unexpected with a late afternoon/ early evening booking, and the acoustics of the venue did nothing to absorb this. We were eventually crowded out of the restaurant by another large party that encroached on our table space. Would highly recommend purely based on the food which was delicious.

Sunday lunch with my son who only eats Spaghetti Bolognese, and my mother in law, to celebrate her birthday.
This place ticks ALL the boxes, the picky eater got the best spaghetti bolognese he’s has ever had, according to him, I’m a bit offended, and my mother in law and I both thought our roast beef was fantastic. More than enough food although we still had desert which was, in my case, a tiramisu that was not too large and not too small, and like everything else we had, absolutely beautifully presented.
Lovely service and everything we ate tasted as good as it looked. We will definitely return when we next visit my son.

This was always my favourite restaurant when I lived in Birmingham. Having recently returned to the UK I was delighted to find it is still open and as fabulous as I remembered. Friendly, efficient service, fantastic food and lovely ambience. Can't wait to be back in the area to visit again.
