Superb Dinner with the team mates and the atmosphere for dinner is perfect. Food was good and should improve with the Italian touch.

We went to try the restaurant as per a recommendation from one of our friends. The ambience and the atmosphere was very warm. The staff was very pleasant and gave us a great service without lacking in any area. We tried many dishes and I...would definitely recommend the seafood pizza and the lamb dishes as it was one of our personal favorites. We also found the prices quite affordable in comparison to other restaurants in Colombo. I will definitely be visiting here whenever I want to try true Italian food.More

Great food, just right and not too over the top and reasonably priced. Great service by Niki and the manager in charge who made special arrangements when I walked in with wife and three kids. Will definitely recommend, great view of the city as well.

I went there for lunch with few of my colleagues. The place not very big but offers a bar area, outdoor and indoor seating. Though the menu is not very long one they have very nice food and drink menu and the the food was...tasty too. The staff was also very helpful and gave us a hand in selecting menu items because it's an Italian restaurant we were not familiar with some of the items. Specially they were ready to describe any food item for us. It should be specially mention that they have great desserts though the options are bit limited. It was really good experience.More

The pizza's at Il Cielo are very good. The cheese and the base was fresh and perfect. If I wrote a review only based on the pizza I would given it 4 or 5 stars. I had the grilled seafood which included modha, cuttlefish and...prawns. The cuttlefish was grilled perfectly and the modha fish was good. The prawns which were close to jumbo prawns in size were also cooked fine. Unfortunately the prawns were not de-veined. This I realized only after eating a bite of it. This was unpleasant. I had to de-vein all the prawns prior to eating them. Even though the prawns shell gave a nice flavor they should have been de-veined. The prawn pasta was ok but nothing to talk home about. Service was fantastic Bottom line great pizza. Few niggles with the other dishes that I hope they will sort out as it's a cozy spot.More

Il Cielo is situated beneath Berlin Sky Lounge. The vision of the proprietor is amazing because you can easily visit both of them yet when you are in Il Cielo you don't even notice Berlin Sky Lounge. The Italian food is excellent. A little piece...of Italy in Colombo with excellent Italian food.More

We (a family group of 7) had dinner at Il Cielo on 23rd June 2017. This was to celebrate my birthday. Let me compliment Il Cielo on choosing a great location with lovely views over Beira Lake. I wish I could say similarly complimentary things...about the rest of our dining experience. We ordered 2 starters and 3 pizzas. The starters took 50 MINUTES to arrive (one was a platter of cold cuts so no cooking required). By the time the first pizza arrived, we had been there for ONE AND A HALF HOURS. It was a vegetarian pizza. As I began eating, I felt something sharp in my mouth. It turned out to be a tiny piece of metal. We showed this to the restaurant manager who at least had the courtesy not to charge us for that pizza. At this point, we had been the restaurant for nearly two hours and only 2 out of the 3 pizzas had arrived. We cut our losses, informed the manager to cancel the third pizza (which she did) and left. I will never return to this restaurant ever again.More
