If you stay at a hotel in Villa Borghese this is a good choice for a meal close by. Ok price, and good service. The food was very good.

We went for dinner. Very friendly, efficient Staff welcomed us. We were given amuse gueles and a selection of home baked breads and focaccia. We had lovely, tender Lamb chops and home made chips, crunchy seasonal vegs and to finish the most gorgeous cheese cake. Not cheap but worth the money, every penny of it. We will be back soon.

Stumbled across this restaurant after a long day spent walking around Rome so we were dressed very casually compared with other diners but it did not seem to matter to the staff. Comfortable dining indoors but we chose more "relaxed" pavement tables as it was a warm evening. Some pedestrian passers-by but not a problem in this neighbourhood, no "flower... More

I have been twice in this restaurant and I can confirm that the decor is very nice and simple. It looks like a large apartment with two or three dining rooms and I really enjoyed the place and its calm atmosphere. What about food? The menu is not very long but offers many interesting dishes, all our orders were well... More

It was after returning to Rome from a month long holiday which took in Tuscany, Umbria, and the Amalfi Coast, that we discovered Gil Ulivi by chance. Passing by, its ambiance reached out the entrance and drew us in. A review of the "all in Italian" menu, and knowing it was in an upscale neighborhood loaded with foreign embassy's, strongly... More

Just minutes from the Lord Byron Hotel on a quiet street. The food was very well prepared, fresh, and lovely. The wine list was small, but well rounded. Many of the combinations on the menu were surprising and tasty. The menu is all in Italian; so if you have a language barrier or are scared to "wing it" bring a... More

The restaurant is a very upscale. Even though we arrived in shorts and a tee shirts, where a tie and jacket would have been more suitable, we were treated very well. Between my broken Italian and the waiters broken English ( and a bit of pointing at the menu) I went with the waiters suggestion of spaghetti with calms and... More
