Description: Ciao Cielo - literally translated from Italian as Hello Sky - is a sparkling addition to the Melbourne restaurant landscape. Situated on lively Bay Street, in Port Melbourne, Inspired by Art Deco elements, Milano sophistication and the glamour of the 40's. Original floor to ceiling boards, beautiful lead light windows dating back to the old shop row days when hardware was the trade. A look at the portraits on the walls show a tribute to the very much loved and missed Lloyd and Mary Grand parents whom past in the Black Saturday fires Bryan's food is about strong italian flavours reflected in the abundance of amazing produce availiable locally in Victoria. Bryan is by no means a traditionalist, he believes in the right to be as creative as one desires with what you are inspired with.

“Incredible service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

My partner and I live locally and this is by far one our favourite restaurants. It's small and intimate without feeling too closed in. Great little oasis away from the sometimes hectic Bay St. The service here is second to none! Lindsay has always remembered our names and even wines we have ordered in the past! We have quite a few meals on the menu, the pork belly is superb but my favourite is the Moreton bay bugs w beetroot ravioli & truffle butter, such incredible flavours! Can't say enough great things about this place, love it!

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

Went here with a group of friends last weekend but would definitely return with my partner.
Ciao Cielo is a real gem. The food is high quality and well presented and the restaurant is greatly enhanced by the service and staff. Unlike a lot of Australian restaurants, this place has great customer service that i noticed in the little things. All main meals were served at the same time. Our water was topped up without having to ask or wait. Staff were courteous and friendly.
Would definitely recommend.
