Fantastic business lunch at a great prix fixe price

I purchased a groupon as an incentive to try Ciello with my husband. It is a few towns away and we have many local wonderful restaurants. The selection at Ciello was interesting and our server was excellent. My husband ordered chicken savoy which he enjoyed and my Bronzino was good . House Cabernet was decent.The restaurant was a bit pricey... More

we dined on the patio recently, the atmoshphere is ok, but the chairs don't work well for the patio- impossible to slide to get into or out from- and they are folding chairs. not a good recipe for a cobblestone surface! the food was fine, but not memorable. oddly enough, the item i liked the best was the sauted eggplant...

A weeknight dinner for three, recommended by a friend. We all enjoyed our courses at this more-than-the-usual-choices Italian restaurant. The standout for me was the inside-out meatball (spaghetti-stuffed) with the most delicious red sauce I've ever had. Other pasta (probably homemade) and fish dishes were very good too, and the tres leches cake was a winner!

We went to Cielo for what was to be an enjoyable dinner on the outside patio. The patio is really pretty. The waiter seemed nice enough, but apparently didn't' quite understand my order. I ordered veal saltimoboca, which by nature comes with spinach. I asked the waiter if I could get a side order of pasta instead of the mashed... More

Horrible table service. The waiter never bothered to ask how everything was while we ate and never bothered to ask if he could wrap any leftover to take home. We had to constantly ask that our water glasses be refilled. I ordered the NY Strip and after being served, they never brought me a steak knife. Once again, I waited... More

We had my husband's birthday party at Cielo's on Saturday afternoon. The food was so delicious and plentiful that my guests are still raving. The waiters were very attentive, ensuring that everyone's experience was pleasurable. Chef Anthony planned a menu of all our favorite menu items and made some excellent suggestions to round out the buffet. We have never been... More

Just delicious ... Wine, food and people are great. Going back tomorrow. The eggplant appetizer was wonderful. The interior is beautiful. Tables are not on top of each other.
