Il Cielo

Over the weekend, I enjoyed a lunch with friends at Il Cielo (meaning "The Sky"), a delicious Italian restaurant in Beverly Hills. I've been wanting to try it ever since a friend came back raving about her Linguine alle Vongole. I'm not too keen on clams, but her enthusiasm was contagious!

Although the weather was a bit chilly, we made the little journey and it was well worth it! The Focaccia alle Erbe con Mozzarella, Pomodoro e BasilicoLinguine alle Vongole (a grilled sandwich with homemade herb focaaccia, tomato, mozzarella and basil) was possibly the best thing I've ever eaten!

What is your favorite delectable sandwich?

  4. What a gorgeous restaurant! I wish any of the blogs I read were from my area so I could actually check these places out.

    My absolute favorite sandwich is from a bakery on my daily commute: mozzarella, garlic aoili, basil, and prosciutto on ficelle bread. (It used to be seeded ficelle...I miss that!)

  5. Wow, I think just the picturesque ambiance would draw me in to that place...beautiful! My fave would have to be a turkey, creamy white cheese (can't remember the name, but it sounded "fancy", lol), and cherry chutney panini (herb foccacia). Sooo yummy :)
