From start to finish Cielo never disappoints. The manager Giorgio is the most welcoming host I know and the food is always superb. When you combine that with ambience and great service from all waiters/waitresses it is a total winner.

Love the family run restaurant. Food is always delicious.
Pleasant Atmosphere.
Staff are attentive and polite.
Only criticism; the gap between each course is too small. As soon as the starter plate is removed, dinner is served.
We asked for a 15 minutes break before desert, but was pestered 4 times for our order?

We were concerned that Cielo might not be re-opening and were delighted when it did. As always the food was delicious and the service amazing! It must be so difficult to achieve a warm and welcoming atmosphere, while maintaining all the Covid-safe procedures, but that they did! We will be back soon.

So pleased that you have re opened and thank you for the warm welcome back to Cielo.
Sunday lunch from set menu. Presented with care and tasted wonderful. We three diners chose beef, salmon, chicken and we were all really happy with our choices.
The tables were spaced well from other diners and we all felt totally safe within the restaurant. See you soon !

We attended for my sister's 21st Birthday meal. The restaurant wasn't at all busy for a Saturday evening (probably because of the current crisis) but there was plenty of staff. Found the staff not very attentive during the evening and I did request for a special pudding for my sister when I booked but we wasn't provided with one (I would have paid of course). Food was okay, pretty much like any Italian restaurant that I've been to. But the king prawn starter was great! Cocktails were pretty decent but they didn't do large glasses for soft drinks. It wasn't awful by no means but I probably wouldn't go again.

Any review must be taken in context of the times we are currently living in. Due to Corona Virus Birmingham was not at it's busiest.
The Restaurant was quite simply superb. Wonderful food, fantastic service and an ambience which was exactly what we were looking for.
Once the world gets on it's feet again, we will definitely return.
Thanks to all staff for making the evening so enjoyable.

One of my favourite restaurants. Never disappoints. Visited for a catch up meal with a friend from out of town. Enjoyed the very good value set menu, plenty of choices. We both had the pate and lentils and sea bass both excellent. Bottle of house white to go with it. Great service, lovely evening all round.

Eaten at Cielo's regularly over the last 2 years and it is consistently excellent! The staff cannot do enough for you and individual requests are always paid attention to. If they can do it they will.

Sunday lunch two courses-- the portions are huge with an ample supply of vegetables. Had I have known this, I probably wouldn't have had a starter. We had roast beef- beautifully cooked with an array of seasonal vegetables, much more than we could finish. The house wines are also very pleasant

Our food was amazing and very good value. It was well presented. There was a bit of a wait in between courses but the restaurant was extremely busy-the staff were rushed off their feet. However, they were all very pleasant & attentive. Can’t wait to go again❤️

We ate from the set menu. The food was beautifully presented and excellent value for money, 2 people, 3 courses and only £54.

Easily accessible for the Indoor Arena. Thank you Cielo, it’s quite a statement to say that the food matched the Stereophonics brilliant performance! We will definitely be coming again.
