Time Out says

Nestled on the 24th floor of Voco Singapore, Il Cielo returns with an all-new Italian comfort food menu with top views of the Orchard skyline. Sporting a major shift from its formal fine-dining roots, the restaurant promises good vibes with its casual yet vibrant atmosphere for an overall laidback dining experience. 

Drawing inspiration from exciting Italian classics with a touch of modernity, the appetizer menu is great for sharing with starters such as the Fritto Miso ($18), a classic Amalfi seafood medley consisting of sweet prawns, soft shell crabs, calamari, and whitebait, all lightly battered and fried to a crisp and accompanied by a lemon aioli that is simply irresistible for any seafood lovers. 

Another traditional starter is a traditional Carpaccio ($28), which sees thin slices of Angus beef tenderloin layered with a contemporary touch of creamy mascarpone and earthy shimeji mushrooms to elevate the delicate dish. The rich decadent Burrata e Tartufo Pizza ($34) is worthy of mention as the simple combination of silky burrata cheese and earthy truffle mushrooms seek to please even the most discerning of pizza lovers.

When it comes to mains, Il Cielo’s pasta dishes are ones to look forward to. Peek the Manzo & Tartufo ($38), perfectly cooked tagliatelle, rich wagyu beef cubes with a moreish red wine and parmesan sauce that binds it all together to rightfully treat beef lovers. Another standout is the Granchio & Asparagi ($32), al-dente briny squid ink pasta sits on a bed of sweet and tangy crab ragout with fork-tender asparagus and cherry tomatoes. 

But what stood out for us was the Cacio & Pepe ($28), a simple combination of angel hair pasta, pecorino cheese and sauteed oyster mushrooms to deliver a soul-comforting dish that showcases a luscious savoury sauce with sharp peppery notes. If cheese and carbs are your thing, this is it. For a sweet ending, go with the Panna Cotta alle Nocciole ($16). A sweet nutty hazelnut praline panna cotta with crunchy hazelnuts contrasted with a zesty citrus marmalade to help balance out the otherwise cloying decadence. 

Whether you’re looking to unwind your afternoon with some light day drinking or enjoy an intimate evening with a special one, Il Cielo has exciting organic Italian wines to pair that will surely complement the occasion.
