Had lunch here last week and found it extremely crowded and touristy. There were three bus groups in the restaurant at the same time and gave little room for individual guests, and service was very slow as a result. The food was tasty and the service was pleasant. We tried the artichokes which the restaurant is famous for - and... More

This is an nice place with good service - and they appreciate your business. The food was good and we liked the flexibility of the staff. We asked to share a couple of dishes and they split the order and gave us separate plates - (looked like full orders to us). We enjoyed the meal, the staff and the house... More

Food as great as you may expect, reasonable prices. One night they had an "emergency" and they had to evacuate the garden without panic -- all done with great humour. Can't wait to go again.

The only good meal today was risotto, lamb and tuna which we ordered were not good at all. Fish food was not fresh dispite its name "fresh tuna".

Reviews on TA and a taxi driver recommendation brought us to this place for dinner. I ordered the ghetto antipasto plate which includes the much raved about fried artichoke. It was OK, the fish on this plate however was amazing. For mains we had pastas which were ok, mine was a bit too salty and my husband agreed when he... More

Good hospitality, we sat in the outside part of the back of the restaurant with another 30 diners. A little cosy but everyone was friendly and a very good family atmosphere. Decent food, recommend the olive starter

This is one of the most charming restaurants in Rome. It has an excellent traditional menu and the garden is delightful. We have had many great meals there; it's a great place to take visitors, and the service is friendly. The only minor complaint is that even if you reserve, its' a bit haphazard.

I have been coming to this restaurant for years and am always treated well and eat very very well. Il giardino romano does a wonderful mixed plate of fried cod fish, jewish artichokes, and other specialties of the area. I also really enjoy their cous cous with fish soup or fresh white fish. In the evening it is nice to... More

I am a vegetarian chef. I had the gnocchi with pesto and bruschetta al pomodoro. It was fabulous. What made this restaurant absolutely exceptional was that the waiter and the host at the door were joking, happy, engaging. They made the whole experience one of the best I have had at a restaurant in Rome. Further, I had walked that... More
