Romantic meal

This place is a little hard to find, but it is worth it. When you first enter, it doesn't look like much, but as you go inside, it is incredibly romantic. We sat by the pond, great music and the service and food was excellent, great fine dining experience.

We had a lovely diner at Il Giardino. Service is very good, the location is nice in a garden sitting. The food was excellent, we were craving for pizzas and we had one of the best pizza ever!! Desserts were good as well.

My sister & I visited this lovely restaurant last night for dinner. The setting is really lovely, amidst a garden with ducks wandering about & a pond with many fish. We started our meal with a bruschetta which was full of fresh tomatoes, basil & well cooked toast (it was toast - not just bread waved over a flame!). For... More

Il Giardino has taken over the Hans Snel restaurant on Jalan Kajeng. It is in a delightful setting, with large open pavilions and a lovely pool which leads to the artists studio and gallery. This restaurant is the showcase for Kali Sary, a longtime resident and chef in Bali. Her Italian cuisine is on-the-mark and would be praised in Roma... More

We ate here one evening, and it was fine. There weren't many diners and I wouldn't rush back either. The staff seemed a little surly, but the good was good.

This is such a little gem in Ubud! We were a little Balinesed out with food so we thought we would try a Italian, upon stumbling on this restaurant on trip advisor we thought we would give it a go. It is down a long alleyway so if Im honest we didn't know what we had signed up for! But... More

We took a break from Indonesian food and stumbled upon on this awesome Italian restaurant - read it in a local magazine and it was on the street we were staying. All six of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Highlights were: gnocchi, chickpea salad, rice balls, pizzas. Wine selection was good. Our entire bill was 1.4m RPH. Six mains. Three... More

Great service, amazing outdoor setting and lighting and flavorful food. We ordered spinach pasta and pumpkin ravioli. The ravioli was a bit sweet which we enjoyed very much and the spinach pasta was also good. We ordered 3 plates thinking the portions were going to be small but two plates for a couple is perfect. If we ever go back... More

We were in Ubud Bali for 8 nights and 3 meals in this wonderful restaurant. I am a connoisseur of Italian cuisine and this is the real deal. Gorogonzola, radicchio, all the ingredients are authentic. If you are looking for a change from the traditional Balenese food this is a welcome change. The butternut ravioli were to die for. It... More
