I walked in to the restaurant and was immediately treated like family. When one of the "regulars" at the bar --Bob--heard it was our anniversary he insisted on buying us a bottle of wine. The mozzarella cheese was made in the restaurant the day we arrived and the pasta was homemnade too. It ws the best Italian I have had in NYC and I eat out % days a week.

Pros: Home made cheese and pastas at bargain prices

Cons: Crowded

We needed a wheelchair friendly, pre-theatre restaurant and found it here. Food was better than expected - I had a delicious salad of arugula, artichoke hearts and parmesan followed by veal scallopine in Barolo sauce- and service was exemplary.

The hostess wasn't just friendly, but went out of her way to be helpful. Waitstaff was charming, attentive and unobtrusive.

What a great surprise! I plan to become a regular here.

Very nice casual atmosphere. Food above average for Italian (try the orange chicken). Very resonable prices and very convienient for pre-theater.

Now understand I was here an hour after getting engaged, so really, Caffe Cielo could have fed the group rubber chickens and we would have had a great time... well, probably. But Caffe Cielo erased any doubt we had by hosting a terrific, terrific evening. The staff was gracious under fire, as our party ballooned past the 20 we'd anticipated. They gave us custom-made prix-fix menus ("Dinner with XXXX & XXXX" enscripted across the top with wedding bells underneath), at a very reasonable $50/person ($40 without veal as an option). Service was prompt, the food fantastic (Oprah rightfully raves about the ravioli), the location ideal, and the ambience just right. A beautiful night. The host, MayBelle, and the Caffe Cielo staff were just delightful, and I'll continue to go back time and time again.

Pros: Everything

.

Don't know about evening, but this is a place where the local entertainment professionals (both tv and music) come to have their lunchs whether for biz or pleasure.
The atmosphere is conservative and calm, the service gracious, and the fish dishes are a specialty.
Be prepared to drop a hundred bucks for lunch for 4 without all the bells and whistles.
This is a good spot for a business lunch.

I had one of the worst service experiences in memory having the prix fix brunch there--waving arms, calling, asking two or three times for everything from coffee to the check. Overworked and superficially pleasant but obviously grumpy waitresses responded to my polite complaints at the end by telling me that I should expect poor service given the brunch prices. Not exactly an answer that would endear me to taking guests there, even for expensive dinners where the tips might inspire better treatment.

Only good words for Caffe Cielo! Good food, good Martini's and a super friendly staff.

The weekend brunch is a delight (at a very reasonable price!)

The crowd is quite interesting also. (we've spotted a few "undercover" celebs a few good times)

I recently called Caffe Cielo to get some information and was told, "BABY, GET TO THE POINT, I AM ON MY LUNCH BREAK"
After this unbelievable comment from who I believe was a manager, I must say I was completely turned off and would never dine here.

Beautiful restaurant, but the food was mediocre at best. Chicken florentine was overcooked (both spinach and meat) and drowned in a flavourless brown sauce. Ravioli were decent, but if you're paying $15-20 per entree, it should be more than decent. Salads were fresh but dressings lacked interest, and what they call fresh mozzerella bears NO resemblance to the real thing. There are definitely better theatre district restaurants in this price range.
