We were there for the restaurant week set lunch. Taste was averagely good. It was a pity that dessert was pavlova which is the few desserts I don't like at all..

The restaurant was located at level 24 of the hotel by the rooftop swimming pool. The dine in area was small but cosy and cooling. For weekday, the restaurant offered lunch set priced at S$25++ for 2 course and S$35++ for 3 course. I was showed to a table with a view of the swimming pool, plus a wooden stool to put my bag on. Looking the menu, I opted for the 2 course with a starter and a main course.Started the meal with the bread basket, which consisted of a crusty bun, a squid ink bun, a oliv

Started the meal with the bread basket, which consisted of a crusty bun, a squid ink bun, a olive bun and a couple of sesame seed crackers. It was served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Black Angus beef carpaccio with Parmigiano Cheese

The thinly slices of meat looked rather raw but lightly seasoned it tasted quite well with the strong flavoured cheese and greens.

Roasted baby chicken, bell peppers & truffle mayonnaise

It was nice that the meat was cut into small pieces which made it easier to slice for eating. The chicken was tender and quite flavourful. For a person who did not like bell pepper due to its rather raw taste, there was none here.

Ended the meal with a cup of rich coffee and almond biscotti.

Service was great with the staff asking about the meal, enquiring if I needed more sauce.

I'd been wanting to dine at il Cielo Restaurant & Bar for a while, and hence we made our way there on a Saturday evening. Unfortunately, the pool was undergoing renovations, because dining by the beautiful pool was one of the main reasons I had wanted to come to il Cielo. Non-fazed, The Beau and I were seated in the exquisite, intimate little restaurant with dim lightings, well-spaced tables and emanating quietly elegant vibes.My starter was the 47 Degrees Cooked Salmon, served with yogurt sauce

My starter was the 47 Degrees Cooked Salmon, served with yogurt sauce and saffron dust. The tiny cubes of salmon were delicious, no doubt - texture a cross between bouncy raw sashimi and the softness of smoked salmon. The pairing with yogurt sauce was brilliant, enhancing the sweetness of the fish with a savoury-sour overture.

For mains, I'd chosen the Roasted Octopus, served with polenta and parsley sauce. The octopus bore a lovely smoky flavor that combined well with its naturally delicate, sweet flavor. It was also grilled to a lovely tenderness that the teeth sliced through very easily. The grilled peppers on the side, and parsley sauce were charming accompaniment, no doubt; it was overally, a very enjoyable dish.

For his mains, The Beau had the Porchetta D'Iberico (SGD$44.00) - roasted iberico pork tournedos, served with sweet mashed potatoes and morels. The meat came in rolls form, and flaked off juicily and scrumptiously - there were a little fats on the side that added to the bounciness of the overall texture. The dish was paired brilliantly with plums that added a sweet flavor to the savoury red meat rolls.

Wow, this is authentic and excellent quality italian food and service at its best. And though the restaurant setting is posh, our toddler was made to feel very welcome by the staff. Not snooty about it at all.

The meal was sensational from start to finish, even till today, the memory of that meal still lingers on. Appetizer was italian tomatoes oozing with a sweet and savoury taste wrapped in the restaurant's own home made buffalo cheese. It was "umami-ness" to the max. Main was a mouth watering, melt-in-the-mouth braised wagyu beef cheek, cooked in a vacuum sealed bag to lock in the flavors we were told. It was served with saffron-touched mashed potatoes. Every bite of the wagyu beef cheek was flavourful, tender, to-die-for. Dessert was a very smooth panna cotta which I later supplemented with chocolate gelato (boring choice but I have a sweet tooth that needs satisfying). Oh even before the appetizer, the bread basket was fresh and aromatic. The entire meal was heaven, a culinary journey course-by-course through the heartiness and flavours and sensorial pleasures of italian cuisine. The manager told us the chef is from north Italy so I would recommend ordering dishes that makes the most of his provenance and heritage. Oooo. Just writing this review is making my mouth water...the beef cheek is sheer pleasure, every single morsel of it. Generous pours of wine and prosecco too!

The service excellence matches the food too. Friendly yet classy, attentive yet unobstrusive, the manager and the lovely waitress who served us completed our experience of italian hospitality. They were so accommodating and cheerful about my toddler's embarrassing requests for repeated servings of parmesan cheese to go with her pasta (she is an addict and can eat a full bowl of parmesan cheese on its own). No need to ever ask for more bread or water or napkins (for my toddler's mess), the service staff will anticipate your needs before you ask them. Another thing I really appreciate is that each course for each person is brought out just at the right time, which is uncommon even in the nice restaurants in singapore.

I will definitely be back. Already the craving for a repeat of the wagyu beef cheek is intensifying as I write this review.

I just had the best Pizza, & the most expensive to date! The Pizza Bosco Porcini @ S$42 excl taxes was my top pick, with bits of cured Italian Sausage & TRUFFLES! Not only were there Black Truffle shavings, the server explained that the Chef also used Truffle Oil in the Pizza & lined the base with Truffle cream sauce. So there're actually lots of Truffles in there. I love the earthy mushroomy smell & taste with each bite, especially their crispy waffle-thin crust. Simply the best Pizza I’ve ever

For those who’re not familiar with this priceless delicacy, Trufficulteurs use specially-trained dogs to find these buried treasures each year. Truffles are among the most expensive natural foods in the world, selling for hundreds or thousands of US$/pound!

I couldn’t get enough of the Pizza, so I ordered a take-out: il Cielo Pizza @ S$48++. This one has a mouthful of Lobster & generous toppings of Caviar on each slice of Pizza. My two guys at home prefer this but Truffles Pizza is no doubt my No. 1!

It was a gorgeous start. I ordered the Capesante (S$22), which is a trio of Scallops. The fresh & succulent Scallops were presented with Foie Gras & topped with Truffle in wine reduction; wrapped in Pancetta with Parsley foam; Saffron sauce & topped with Caviar. It was a harmonious appetizer for the senses!

I’d the Tagliatella (S$28) for the main. The ink-squid pasta was tossed with crab meat, lobster, asparagus & tomatoes. I thought the combination was perfect, but I’d prefer more sauce as it was a little dry. The seafood was lovely.

il Cielo has a fantastic variety of interesting Pizzas with ingredients like Lobster, Caviar etc. Too bad I was pressed for time. Would definitely love to try their Pizzas the next time I return.
