Il Cielo at Hilton Singapore presents Italian Calvisius Caviar from 16 September to 13 October 2013

From 16 September to 13 October 2013, Hilton Singapore’s award-winning Italian restaurant and bar, il Cielo, is set to win the hearts of caviar fans and gourmands with a medley of exquisite Calvisius Caviar paired with Italian signatures.

Having visited il Cielo for a media event starring Chef Omar Bernardi when he first joined Hilton Singapore, I’ve always been yearning to return to this spectacular dining spot –and what better occasion to return than for this amazing caviar promotion?

The best time to arrive at il Cielo is at 7pm, just in time to witness the brief moments of the sky changing colours when the sun sets. It makes an utterly romantic backdrop.

Presenting fresh and high-quality Malossol Standard Caviars, varieties include Da Vinci, Tradition, Oscietra Classic and Venise. Malossol is a Russian word for little salt; hence Malossol caviar has very low salt content, usually below 4%.

Diners have two options: to mix and match caviars with a platter of savoury accompaniments with the Calvisius Caviar Degustation ($298++), or relish in Italian specialties with exclusively-paired caviars with the A La Carte Calvisius Caviar Menu where there’s also a 2-course and 3-course menu available, priced at $188++ and $248++ respectively.
