Very good service, clean, very nice place totally but.. So were several other restaurant near by also. Food nothing special, maybe those good votes comes from fast and friendly service? (people are not used to that in Italy?). We went there because of so so many good reviews, but this was not top in our list. ( I was even... More

This restaurant was by far our best meal of our entire trip to Rome. From the moment you walk into this quaint restaurant in the basement of the building you realize that you're walking into a very well run astonishment. There were at least five local families that came in while we were there that were regulars based off of... More

This is a wonderful deviation from the standard Italian fare, offering exceptional swordfish prepare Sicilian style. It is modern and tucked away and is owned and operated by a very friendly family. I have eaten there for years and have never been disappointed. TomB

We found il Gabriello on tripadvisor and I thought it would be a lovely restaurant to have dinner as it was 'the busy dad's' birthday. What a great choice indeed. The menu has excellent choices and the food has Devine flavours. The service, hospitality and friendliness of all the staff was fabulous. We enjoyed it so much that we booked... More

I had been past this restaurant on Via Vittoria every day and every year we have been spending a month in Rome, and this last trip finally got there! We stopped at the Frattina Cafe and our waiter Domenico suggested it and boy were we glad. The restaurant is small, cozy and a flight of stairs that go down....but you... More

Excellent food and staff, highly recommended! A reservation is needed, but we were lucky since we didn't have any. We arrived at 7pm and were told we can stay if we can make it till 9pm.

We found this restaurant in Rick Steves' Italy guide. It is pricey, but the euro had just dropped to near-parity with the dollar so we went for it. Yes, we are tourists, and yes, this restaurant is located two feet from the very touristy Piazza Espana and Spanish steps. However, the staff treated us like old favorites who had been... More

We needed to book and return the next night as every table was booked when we arrived first time. For our dinner, we started with a few oysters, which was perfectly marinated in vinegar, and fresh lemon was served on the side, however not cut loose and no specialty knife. The meal developed with the steak, that actually were two... More

I did my research before our trip to Rome so my friends and I had a few options in mind for our evening meals. We had to book to eat here so popped in one evening to reserve a table for the the next night. Booking is something I highly recommend as this was a popular restaurant for tourists and... More

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.
