Fabulous, interactive, charismatic service. Management genuinely concerned with our happiness during our meal. Great Roman style and Italian style cuisine. Lovely atmosphere. It was the bet place we ate in Rome!

Very bad service, unacceptable waiting time, staff arguing among themselves , waiter teasing me by saying ten times " your dish is ready"! Poor value for money. Don't go , there are so many great places around.

Il Brillo Parlante is a nice traditional italian restaurant/trattoria very close to piazza del popolo and piazza di Spagna, with a contemporary and cosy feeling, especially indoor downstairs. When we visited it was early afternoon and the place was not crowded. It is very clean, with a wide selection of pastas and pizza to choose from and the service is... More

Excellent food, but some main courses are small, you have to know what you are ordering. Beside that I ordered an delicious agnello .

The restaurant was just a block from our hotel so we decided to give it a try almost immediately after arriving in Rome. The service was very friendly and attentive, the waiter Michele is worth a special mention due to his bright personality and friendly attitude! The best tiramisu by far! I recommend the local Shiraz of Lazio region (@20... More

I went with my girlfriend, and orderded two cheeseburgers (since some friends had that recommended). The staff was friendly and the service ok. It was a nice but rather expensive restaurant.

We went there after a friend's recommendation and we did well. It's a nice traditional restaurant in the centre of Rome. With a narrow entrance but with lot of rooms and space as you go down! Service was good and polite. The food was very nice with a lot of options. Wine list was also extended.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
