Great atmosphere and excellent service but unfortunately the food was a let down. The calamari starter was a very unappealing colour and nothing special to eat. We had the lamb for main and it was very bland, the highlight of the main was the single carrot that was served with the lamb but otherwise quite a disappointing dish.

Oustanding service! Food was fresh and you could tell! Portions were fantastic also.

There was a complaint on the table next to us (picky customer) and the staff were extremely helpful and handled it in the best way possible!

10/10 would recommend!

A lovely restaurant. Food was very good value for money.

Able to adapt menu options for dairy free diet.

3 wine options missing from menu but pleasantly surprised by house wine.

Would recommend.

Visited 14.45 Sunday, November 6th.

Fist visit to your restaurant. Service and food excellent
We will definitely return.

Thank for a a great meal.
Kind regards,

Delicious freshly cooked food, attentive but not intrusive staff and a lovely environment in which to enjoy an unhurried meal.
I don’t think it’s part of a chain, which is a very refreshing change these days.
Will definitely return! 😋

This is a REAL Italian restaurant that always delivers. They have a very interesting menu and excellent wines from top Italian producers. We both enjoyed a recent addition to the menu - Linguine Scallops. Glorious flavours. Wines include an excellent Dindarello pudding wine which paired beautifully with their Tiramisu. A really superb meal as usual, with excellent professional friendly staff. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

Cielo is a little pricier than some other Italian restaurants, but it really is a case of 'you get what you pay for'.
The service was first class, the restaurant is lovely & the food is second to none.
Thanks to the Team at Cielo, still up there with the Best!

Didn't get to dine here as after booking a table for 21:30, we arrived at 21:39 so with in our 10 min grace period. We were told that we are apparently late which we obviously weren't. The waitress was very rude and told us that we have booked a table for 21:15 which we hadn't and even showed on her screen as 21:30. She then tried to say that we are late for that anyway even though we are within our grace period by making up a time which was wrong. After proving her wrong she then insisted the kitchen is closed so can not help us. At this point another woman grabbed the manager who was also very rude and wasn't interested in hearing our side and told us the kitchen is closed also. I would also like to note that a large group had only just sat down before we entered and they were happy enough to serve them. Hate to say it but feel this may have been racial discrimination and would not recommend this place to anyone.

Shame they ran out of ingredients for pornstar martini but they quickly rectified the situation with complementary lemoncello. Sea bass and scallops were lovely! Bruschetta wasn’t the best. Nice place and affordable.

We arrived having booked prior at 5.50pm. 1st course took 40 minutes and mains 1 hour 10 minutes after arrival despite them knowing we were going to the theatre. Others came in after us and were served prior. waitresses were distressed. serious problems with management. food good though (when it came and had to be bolted down) Bill was wrong--tried to overcharge for drinks.
