Ciao Cielo

Formal Dining

Thank you for taking the time to check out our opening menu for the beautiful dining space Ciao Cielo, set in the historic courthouse.

Due to heavy restrictions on patron numbers, we have devised a menu we hope will keep our regular customers happy whilst still keeping our staff employed and business viable.

We understand that the cost of this menu may be high for some or too limited so, please understand we are running our full normal a la carte offering in the Ciao Cucina area. Including the all-weather marquee and outdoor dining spaces. Bookings highly recommended and seating times will apply. See Ciao Cucina menu for more details.
