A great meal in Rome near Spanish Steps

This was probably our best meal in Rome. It's located close to the Spanish Steps but it's definitely not a touristy trap type place. My husband and I had ordered the Veal and it was delicious. Wine was also good. The crepes we shared for dessert were heavenly. It's below ground and was very... read more

The lovely restaurant, located in a basement, is a gem. We dined there the last night of our vacation... Frankly, I wished we had eaten there before. My family of 4 ordered different items from the menu and all of us loved what we had. We will definitely visit it again the next time we travel to Rome.

Found this restaurant conveniently located close to our holiday rental apartment near the Spanish Steps. It was a great find! Very friendly staff, excellent menu and quality of the dishes. The advice on wine was definitely worth having, the sommelier's suggestions were perfect for our taste. We'll come back next time we visit Rome.

I'm not sure I have the words to describe how much we loved his place!! We went here for dinner tonight after reading the previous reviews and it's just around the corner from our hotel.

Our second visit to Il Gabriello proved that this restaurant is consistently excellent in its food and service. In addition to a bottle of wine, we enjoyed appetizers of Prosciutto with Melon and an order of shrimps and fennel. They were followed by the main courses of Branzino and their specialty of Shrimp Gabriello. Desserts and coffee rounded out the... More

The food was exceptional. "Chefone" truly knows how to work his passion. The fish dishes were incredibly well cooked. The service was faultless. i would highly recommend il gabriello to anyone looking for a proper Italian meal instead of the nasty tourist versions. I Have grown up in a restuarant family, and I can honestly this place is not to... More

He's done it again- made famous a restaurant that should be famous -not Bourdain famous, but famous nonetheless. Reservations are a must and only available 48 hrs before dining (unless the manager or concierge of nearby hotels like Garibaldi Suites makes the call). Terrific ambiance though it's in a cellar. Great staff and big wine list, which was reasonably priced.... More

I was lucky enough to get a table here with my daughter last month whilst visiting Rome. The food was wonderful, the service very kind and the owner very accommodating by giving us a table we had no reservation for. Despite that we were not hurried and enjoyed our best meal in Rome. I am about to call them for... More

Just came back from dinner at Il Gabriello and have an awful taste from the bad service we received tonight. The food was nice, but it was completely outweighed by the awful service, attitude and ignorance by our waiter-an older, gentleman with reading glasses.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
