Lovely ambience with exquisite food

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 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.

First Time at Il Cielo

The view was good but the ambience is bit bar-like.  

The food was excellent, particularly the white asparagus with Iberico haam, Capesante, pizza, agnello, veal, and angel hair pasta.  even though I didn't get my dish, Orata, done the way it should be. 

The only negative comment is the service,

New Chef and Improved menu

I had been to il Cleo recently and realised they have a change of chef. The new chef executes the mains (esp. meat) better than the previous one and the old favourites (appetisers and pastas) are still as good.

I had also like my tiro scallops and this time round (my 3rd time eating it), it did not
