Vacationers listen up...If you want an excellent meal, you need to try Il Cielo
We visited on July 30 and had a fantatic dinner experience. Its a slow time of year at Sanibel and while we did have a reservation, it wasn't really required. We arrived for our 7:30pm meal (family of 4 with 12/10 yr olds) and were offered a booth. The dinning room is very nicely appointed and the ambience is excellent.
We were greeted warmly by all the staff. Once seated, our waitress was excellent. The menu was explained very well and the specials sounded excellent. We ordered some app specials for the kids and had a caprese salad and their summer salad. The caprese was made with EXCELLENT heirloom tomatoes and the balsamic was fantastic.
For mains we had their tuna steaks done on a mushroom linguini. FANTASTIC! The fish was cooked perfectly and the mushrooms were incredible. As a bonus, the wine was 25% off. We all loved dinner and the desserts that followed. (Key lime pie and creme brule both home made)
The experience overall was fantastic and if you are into more upscale dining, you need to visit!
Thanks again for a wonderful evening!
