Il Cielo is a casual Italian restaurant with an option of both the options of interior of poolside dining.
At a recent visit, I started with the Burrata ($38),a large portion of chilled cheese in a bed of salad designed for sharing.
I then had the Velutata di Zucca ($20), pumpkin soup topped with black truffles. Thick and flavourful.
For my pasta dish I had the Capellini ($39), which was steeped in tomato sauce with crab meat.
For my main course I had the Cacciucco ($40), a Tuscan seafood stew. I liked the presentation here, in which there was a broth thick of fish and shellfish flavours but the seafood was served separately to prevent it from being over-soaked in the soup, with many of the items, such as salmon, cod, seabass, prawn and scallop grilled to perfection.
Dessert was the Tiramisu ($17), lightly done and served with ice cream, to end the heavy meal. Chilled out the rest of the evening with a coffee.
Overall, well executed food in a casual environment.
