The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

Now part of Rockville Centre history is Cielo Ristorante, a traditional Italian dining spot on Sunrise Highway. It was a white-tablecloth kind of place, one whose menu included such items as baby artichoke salad, pasta e fagioli, fusilli Bolognese and chicken scarpariello.

Taking over the site will be a more casual brand of Italian restaurant, this one co-owned by chef-restaurateur Art Gustafson of the nearby Chadwick’s American Chop House & Bar. Making pasta as well as mozzarella on premises is part of the plan, as is a debut within the next month. More to follow as opening day approaches.
