A good restaurant with extremely friendly staff

We like good fish and seafood dishes and this restaurant clicked all the boxes. Beautifully cooked and presented. Lots of advice and help given by the staff when looking at the menu. A 5 minute walk from the Lord byron hotel which was where we were staying.

Gli Ulivi is very popular with its local, well heeled clients. It can be difficult to get a table, but when you taste their food, you will understand why. On my second attempt to have a meal there, the manager was very apologetic about being so busy. He went out of his way to ensure that I was accommodated. The... More

We were staying at the nearby Duke Hotel and stumbled across this place. We were glad we did, in fact so glad that we ate here 3 nights out of the 4 we were in Rome. The staff were super-friendly, the food was fresh, well cooked and interesting. The wine list was one of the longest I have ever seen... More

This is a very Nice restaurant if you stay in the area of Villa Borghese. Good and honest food. We had the most delicious deep fried basil leafs, and homemade taglioni with white truffel. Great! Staff was very friendly.

Great service, menu is a bit different from other restaurants in the area. We enjoyed our meal here - and it was half the cost of our previous dinner!

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

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
Parioli
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavor of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
