We had been recommended to try this restaurant and were not disappointed. the food was excellent and the ambience, sitting outside on the pavement watching the world go by was an experience not to be missed. On a second trip to Rome we revisited the restaurant and were equally impressed

On the menu were all the traditional plates like rigatoni con la pajata, trippa, zuppa di baccale and ceci... More

We stayed at an Air B and B in the Jewish Ghetto and loved it! The owner recommended going to Il Giardino and we were quite pleased! We had a montepulciano d'abruzzo that was recommended by the waiter - we loved it! We also loved the glasses of house wine that we had there. Could have stayed all night drinking... More

The artichoke both roman and jewish were great as expected. The surprise was how good the pastas were. Wonderful gnocchi, ravioli and risotto. Delightful place.

Great, simply a fantastic little Restaurant in a classic setting of Rome, with plenty of character and oozing wonderful flavours, textures and colours in every dish and mouthful I saw or tasted. 13 of us sat down to dine, and 13 very full and very happy and contented people struggled to stand up after a wonderful eating experience. Thank you... More

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".
