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

We happened upon this restaurant by chance and are so glad we did! The mozzarella was amazing (the best I have ever had)! We had risotto and linguine with lobster for our first course, and they were delicious as well! I wouldn't recommend the lamb chops, but the sea bass was excellent. The wine list is extensive as well. Don't... More

It was our (my wife and I) first night in Rome. Having just arrived from a long tiring trip we were anxious for some good Italian food. Helped by TripAdvisor we chose the Gabriello, that was very close to our hotel on Via del Corso. On the way, we had a look at a couple other places, but when we... More

Most of the places in Rome's city center treat you like a tourist who never comes back. I was very happy to find an exemption with Il Gabriello. The food and the atmosphere was great and we felt very welcome.
