My husband and I have tried many Italian restaurants throughout the Salt Lake City area. Celeste always has come out on top! We have eaten there many times and have yet to be disappointed. Paolo lovingly creates his delicious Italian food that is made to order. He makes his own breads, desserts, and some pastas. I truly hope that during this virus crisis, people who know how delicious Paolo’s food is will continue to support Celeste via takeout orders. We did a takeout there last weekend and other than missing Carmen, his wife, who is always there with a smile to greet their restaurant guests, we were once again delighted with the high quality of his authentic Italian food. Please support Celeste during this difficult time by ordering takeout, as it would truly be a loss for Salt Lake City if they were forced to close. Be assured that they are strictly following the virus guidelines. Hope to see you there in the near future!

This is by far the best Italian restaurant in salt lake! I hesitate to post this because I don’t want it to get out how wonderful the food and service is because when word gets out I will no longer be able to get a table. Try the specials! Never disappointed by this place! Carmen is one of the kindest and most gracious people I have meet

Fantastico! Il maestro chef, Paolo Celeste, è tornato!
I just found out the maestro, Chef Paolo Celeste is back. This man is a great culinary artist.
Outside of Italy, I’ve never had better cuisine from “the boot.” My brother and I (and many a friend and family member) used to frequent Michelangelo’s in Sugar House before he sold it.

We had a lovely dining experience from start to finish. The staff was genuine in their hospitality and love of the food. I had the crab gnocchi which was like little pillows of delight with a sweet crab sauce. My husband bolognese was fresh and the flavors on point. Wow!

Remarkable. The aroma, the kitchen sounds, the flavors and freshness of it all…just like walking into a popular restaurant in Italy. These people know how to make it right! What a way to make a memorable anniversary meal more memorable! THANK YOU!

Had dinner at Celeste for my boyfriend’s birthday. Being Italian, quality and freshness are a must. You will not be disappointed. The meal was delicious. House made gnocchi and perfectly cooked mushroom risotto. Make sure you try the desserts that Paolo Celeste makes daily! Staff is friendly and attentive. Overall very delicious.

We’ve dined at Celeste twice and each time we had a wonderfully authentic Italian meal. The Tiramisu is to die for. The noise volume is high, however, because of the delicious food, we will definitely come back.

The original MICHAELANGELO restaurant in Sugar House with Paulo and Marco was considered the most authentic, and best in the city. Visited frequently by celebrities and sports professionals. The return of Paulo is a welcome addition to the Salt Lake City restaurant scene. Our most recent meal there was excellent and reminiscent of the Michaelangelo of the past.

This place is amazing! Beautiful atmosphere, authentic food, lovely and personable staff – one of the most memorable and delightful meals I’ve had in the area. So delighted that Salt Lake now has this Italian gem.
