Highly regarded as one of the best restaurants in Birmingham, the award-winning Cielo is a stylish and modern Italian restaurant nestled in the heart of Brindleyplace. Inside, the interior is contemporary, while the friendly and knowledgeable team provide exemplary service throughout.
The exceptional menu features a wonderful selection of traditional and modern Italian dishes, simply cooked by the talented kitchen team using only the freshest, and finest local ingredients. Start with the wonderful antipasto comprising a selection of Italian cured meats, artichoke, pickled sun-dried tomatoes, baby mozzarella and crostini bread, or perhaps opt for the Portobello mushroom filled with Gorgonzola, herb crust, white truffle oil and wild rocket leaves. In true Italian style, the pasta and risotto dishes are packed with flavour and are sure to please. Highlights include the tagliatelle Fiorentina featuring chicken breast, fresh tomatoes and wild mushrooms in cream and white wine sauce, and the delectable salmon rigatoni. Those choosing from the meat and fish dishes can expect the likes of grilled monkfish tail accompanied by Dauphinoise gratin, courgette, and broad beans served in a lobster bisque sauce, and T-bone steak with French fries and red wine reduction. Cielo’s is also a popular destination for Sunday lunch, and booking in advance is required.
As is true of any excellent Italian restaurant, Cielo’s wine list is well worth perusing; it features an extensive selection from across the world. It’s easy to see why this destination is so well received.
