I got the veal scalloping with shrimp, it was two pieces of veal and 3 shrimp.... More

My wife and I went out for a nice quiet dinner together. We started with the crab cake. Small but very tasty. The kind with mostly meat. Next was the caprese salad. Excellent presentation and good flavor. Enough for us to split it. Dinner for her was scallops with potatoes - well prepared, very good. I had the red snapper... More

Well prepared food in a very nice setting. The service was friendly and professional. I had the Tile fish special served with pasta and fresh veggies. Very good sauce. Would recommend.

Seven of us had an early dinner before going to the symphony and sat around a round table and had Una for our waitress. Beside delicious food she really made the evening very special. Beautiful restaurant. Would recommend it to anyone.

We had read a lot of positive reviews and wanted to check this restaurant out. Had a great dinner experience last night. Our server Tiffany did a great job and both of our appetizers and mains were excellent. Would definitely return and recommend Il Cielo!
