It was 9pm and they were busy. We stood at the bottom of the stairs waiting behind another couple. No one would look at us as they came by many times. After several minutes we choose to leave as they did not even show the courtesy to acknowledge our presence. There were people leaving so we knew there were some... More

This restaurant is located down a small alley near the Spanish steps. You have to walk down a flight of stairs. It is a small cozy place. The seafood is amazing & that is what it is known for. Fantastic desserts, too. Loved it!

Great food at good prices. The wine list was also a good value. I had a great bottle of Tigannelo for 80 euro. I will go back.

We have eaten at Il Gab 4 times in the last 3 years and it has been very consistently delicious. It's very friendly to tourists - even children, although it's really a more sofisticated environment than family friendly. Think date night. The house wines are really nice and a great value as well. We will go back the next time... More

This restaurant is located in a very convenient place near the Spanish Steps. It was in walking distance from our hotel which was perfect. The staff was very friendly and the food was exceptional. This was not a typical touristy restaurant and one of our favorite meals during our 9 day stay in Italy and it was also our last... More

In an area of Rome (Spanish Steps) filled with restaurants of varying quality, Il Gabriello stands out as one of the best. This is a classy restaurant, well-appointed, with "service" and "fine dining" its priorities. The menu is first-rate, with fish prominently featured. However, all items are excellent. The owners take pride in the product, and it shows. If you... More

Dining while visiting Rome can be a decidedly mixed bag of touristy rip-offs and not very memorable meals. Not so with this establishment. Although in an area with many very average eateries, this one really stood out with an interesting menu, well made courses by someone who obviously must have cared, and with a calm, professional, friendly and generous service...

Another surprise experience, thanks to TA local attraction search on my smart phone. I give 4.5 stars. First of all, we had passed its entrance twice as it was right next to another tourist trap covering building front with chairs and awning. When we spotted the entrance, we definitely noticed it was a classy dining setting, one can tell. Although... More

Our favorite restaurant in Italy is unquestionably il Gabriello, a short three blocks from the Spanish Steps. The food is ALWAYS superb (thank you Gabriello), there is a great wine list, and the service (led by the incomparable Claudio--thanks Claudio) is wonderful. Only dinner is served, and I would highly suggest you make reservations, since I have seen disappointed people... More

Found this place by reading online reviews while in Rome. It was about a 15 minute walk from our hotel, and just a few minutes from the Trevi fountain. We didn't have a reservation, but we did arrive a little early for standard dinner time in Italy so they were able to seat us right away. You proceed downstairs into... More
