A beautiful old building restored to be an vibrant restaurant. The food is very tasty and thought out. Not the usual run of the mill but very interesting and creative.

They have just moved to a bigger premises, but have kept the charm and atmosphere. Beautiful food, fantastic service and great location. I personally would like to see a better range of drinks.

Consistently wonderful meal. Truffled potatoes are always a must. A little noisy in the main dining area but everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Great staff & service,

Didn't like the seating arrangements being shoulder to shoulder with other diners in a tight booth type configuration. People right beside us were having a conversation that we didn't want to necessarily hear. Wont be back.

I had seen this restaurant advertised on Postcards and was keen to try it. Honestly I was so impressed with everything that it had to offer, ambience, food, service. Thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it ..

Lovely food and ambience as always, complemented by a thoughtful and extensive wine list. We always enjoyed our visits - be it lunch or dinner. Our overseas guests were very impressed too! Great nite out

About Ciao Cielo

Italian for love From the front windows pops Ciao Cielo’s 1940s art deco style, looking all the parts of a little slice of Europe. Atmospherically lit with walls adorned with mirrors and vintage black and white portraits, Ciao Cielo is one of Port Melbourne’s best kept secrets, a cosy neighbourhood gem that is the perfect place to spend a romantic dinner or catching up with a friend. And the menu is equally as elegant. A petite menu of lovingly cooked Italian dishes is on offer. Delicious entrees such as the herby calamari or the zesty bruschetta are a fine start. Traditional gnocchi and spaghetti dishes get their own distinct approach of flavour (the potato gnocchi with roast pumpkin and walnut is a big step up – sorry Nonna!). There’s a neat little choice of meat dishes for something more substantial, such as the steak or BBQ quails, but methinks the slow roasted lamb shoulder’s where it’s at. With thoughtful staff to put you at ease, this sure to make for a special night out where one can share old memories and make new ones. Best dish: lamb shoulder
