Great location and atmosphere

Tried to book in advance of our trip but they only accept bookings within 48 hours so booking made by hotel. The restaurant is situated in a side road close to the Spanish Steps but the entrance is small and you can easily miss it as we did.

Reservations are a must! Call 1 day in advance to be safe. Menu offered a variety of Italian cuisine besides the typical pizza and pasta. Ordered fillet with spicy green sauce and the turbot, both of which were delicious. Ordered lobster with linguine for the first course, the portion was large so the staff allowed us to split it.

Thanks again to TA for helping us to find a very nice, value for money, hidden restaurant! Just good quality, honest Italian food at a very reasonable price.

This restaurant is small and very busy, You definitely need reservations. It is also not handicap accessible. You enter from the street and go down a flight of stairs. The prices are mid-range and entrees, in most cases, do not come with sides. So ask so you can order vegetables or salads. The menu is very varied from pasta to... More

The first time we tried, we were turned away because we did not have a booking so booked for following night . This place was AMAZING!!! The staff, the food, the wine, the ambience were all sensational .Great for... More

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

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.
