Il Cielo presents innovative, flavorful dishes in a warm, elegant setting in the heart of Sanibel Island. Located on the famous Periwinkle Way, the restaurant boasts an alluring ambiance with an elegant wrought iron staircase, romantic torch-lit dining verandah, Art Deco-inspired pendant lights, and a beautiful rotunda with a sky blue and gold hand-painted dome overlooking the casual dining space below.
The refined atmosphere corresponds nicely with the menu, which features creative cuisine made from sustainably caught local fish, grass-finished beef, lamb and free-range chicken, and locally sourced vegetables, herbs, and spices. Begin with small plates of seared ahi tuna, baked blue fin crab, traditional meatballs, or lobster ravioli, followed by garden fresh salads and an array of specialties such as roasted lamb ribs or pistachio-crusted rack of lamb, seared day boat scallops and Asian seared tuna, or New York strip steak or filet of beef.
A carefully curated wine list offers an array of international wines and local craft beers that can be enjoyed with dinner or in the comfortable lounge. Il Cielo is open for dinner daily and offers live music on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights.
