Ended up eating at Il Brillo Parlante 3 nights in a row... Meat was tender with flavour, pizza's were good beautiful sauce 'sugo' on them and even their pasta... The dessert tops it all, their panna cotta is to die for!! Manager 'Ignazi' lovely bubbly man! Perfetto!!

We eat here every year we visit Rome since 1998 and have never been disappointed. Pizza is my favorite in Italy, thin and crispy! Pasta's are made fresh with delicious sauces. Prices are inexpensive 10 euros for a pizza or pasta dish. They offer wine for everybody from inexpensive to my favorite Sassicaia Bolgheri. Our Server on this visit was... More

When you ask for a starter menu item you expect the starter to come at the start of the meal and not with the main course. However this restaurant disagrees. After quickly gobbling up my slices of pork (which I have to say were quite charming as they did not come burdened with salt) I went straight into my already... More

We spent 3 days in a little hotel next to it. Ate there the first day and had to go back because it was very nice (especially compare to the other restaurants we have tried during our walks) We ate pizzas, beef, salads and pastas there and everything was very very tasty, good quality and enough portion. Definitely recommended.

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.
