“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Had a lovely evening at Cielo; the surroundings were lovely and the service excellent. My partner had bruschetto and I had the goats cheese; both were enjoyable. This was followed by Monkfish for myself and my partner had penne pasta with choritzo; both were well presented and were faultless. The creme de la creme was the chocolate fondant; perfect and light the best I have tasted. We will definitely be returning.

“Tasty Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Had a great meal here on a Tuesday night courtesy of Abbott while at the IBMS Congress.
Went for the mussels to start (in saffron cream sauce, big bowl and delicious).
Had the spag pancetta for main which was pretty good, but was left wondering what my hosts pasta dish was like (chorizo based penne which smelled gorgeous!)
I had the trio of puddings to finish which was delicious (strawberry cheesecake, blackcurrant sorbet and a pannacotta).
Lovely meal, thank you guys from Abbott!

“Reliably good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We had pre-theatre supper on a Saturday evening. The service was good and the food was of a high standard as usual. We were originally sat at a table by the till point which was not ideal as it was in a cold and busy area of the restaurant. We were relocated to a corner circular table which was perfect. Highly recommend.

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We dined at this restaurant the evening of 30/08/13. It was superb. Service was wonderful, food was exceptional, the portions were very generous indeed and exceeded our expectations. I had the fish cakes to start and my husband the mussels. Both were mouthwateringly divine. I then had the crab linguine and my husband the salmon linguine. Again faultless. Please bear in mind we have lived in Italy and can compare with confidence. Will definately be going back soon. Enjoy

“A good random choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled on this restauraunt as we were checking the area nearby ,decided on some "tea" and went in. Waiter/waitress service very attentive ( to be fair it wasnt that busy at 6pm) but food was very good if a little overpriced . 3 drinks each ,starter , main and shared desert came to 112 pounds ....
