Being located at the downtown Marina has its advantages... the fishermen docks right in front of CILO. Our Chef always has the first pick and will treat you every night with a fresh catch of the day. Life is great at CILO!

Delicious Pasta

Outdoor dining with view of the marina. Our pasta tasted great, reasonably priced, but some menu items are overpriced. Service was friendly and fast.

My wife and I went to Cilo; we had an hour and a half between meetings. What was good? Good assortment of wines by the glass, comfortable chairs, excellent life music, and next door to my office. Why would I not go back? The welcome was poor; no greeting. Then one of the servers came in and sat on the... More

All the bars in the area have happy hour specials 2 for 1. The 2 drinks together did not equal one. Both drinks I received were over flowing with ice. Same with my wife's drinks. The 'fresh' fish was fresh at some point, probably a week ago. Skip CILOs you are not missing anything. They get traffic because they are... More

We used to come here a lot because we are locals. We always enjoyed their big choice of small and large dishes and the possibility to have a sandwich in the evening. But they have changed the menu so you are obligated to order a maincourse after 5 p.m. Too bad, a big disappointment!

Went to CILO just for dessert and it was a quite nice restaurant with outdoor seating. The creme brûlée was very great. A nice scoop of refreshing raspberry sorbet on the side was great and the price was reasonable. Upon looking at the menu, it seemed very expensive, but the desserts were of good size and price. The apple pie... More

The waitress that received us was in a really bad mood, wasn't receptive at all and because of that she took the wrong order. After waiting a long time for our meal, we realized she brought something different. They assumed the error, brought us the original choice and wasn't what we expected. Never told us they didn't have the sauce... More

Here you have a great example of a restaurant that is located in the ideal location, has great food, nice music, great atmosphere, cigarettes smoke inside, and bad service.
