Friendly and very personal staff, good food

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

After reading many reviews on Trip Advisor, I booked this restaurant for our 1st evening in Rome. The service was extremely good, waitress talked us through the menu in English. Chose I very good bottle of red wine to accompany our meal and some lovely starters & mains followed. Lots of locals started coming through the doors as we ate... 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...

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

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.
