We decided to go this restaurant because of the good reviews we read. But nothing we read turned out to be true. The restaurant is in vaulted cave and the decoration refined but that's all You have to pay 4 euro for 1 piece of...bread and 2 sticks of grisin. I've ordered some pasta with pesto and clawfish and I had only 1 clawfish cutted in 4 tiny pieces; after my remark they gave me another a bowl of pesto with another 1 clawfish cutted in 6 !!! needless to say that I had to "fish" for bites of clawfish The veal my husband ordered was too cooked and the potatoes aside are charged 6 euro ! The service is efficient, and the menu is diversed but according to our experience I can't recommand this restaurant : it's way too expensive for the dishes servedMore

We had a splendid diner with the whole family in the cellar restaurant of Il Gabriello. With a smile they changed dishes for our pregnant daughter. Very kind and friendly staf! A place to go!

I saw il Gabriello on a YouTube vlog and after checking their reviews on Tripadvisor I went ahead and had dinner on a Thursday evening.The restaurant itself was very quiet and empty on a Thursday evening but that was no problem since it allowed for...more of an intimate setting and more attentive services,towards the end of our dinner the restaurant was getting busier. The food was brilliant me and my partner orderd the lobster spaghetti and seafood pasta both portions were generous in the seafood aspect. However after adding mozzarella to the bruschetta and removing the green stuff it was amazing. I would definitely give il Gabriello a visit if your in Rome.More

WOW we came across this restaurant by chance on our first night! It was simply AWESOME- Especially the starters!!! The food was so good!!!! Not a fan of getting charged for bread when you don't want it but it seems standard in most restaurants in...Rome. However we loved the wine, all the food and would highly recommend!More

We were in Rome for a milestone birthday celebration. Wife, youngest son and self. This is truly a gem and the staff offer outstanding service. the atmosphere is traditional Italian and the food was scrumptious ... we started with Bruchetta Pomodoro, individual dishes ordered ......Spaghetti Amatriciana, Spaghetti Vongole Pachi and the dish I went back for on another evening ... Tonnarelli Maffei. We had loads of fun with the staff learning to pronounce our limited Italian ... great fun and since we all threw coins into Trevi, we expect to return to Rome again and will head straight for our first evening meal at Il Gabriello!More

Great food and service in a very quaint, romantic setting. A hidden gem worth visiting while in Rome.

We visited here last night (15th January) as it was near our apartment and has good reviews on TA. Upon arrival we were shown to our table which we did not book but the maitre' d was happy to fit us in with no hesitstion....The waitress who looked after us was professional and always a smile on her face without being too much. She was by far the nicest waiting staff from any restaurant we had visited in Rome as I have found most of them not interested in serving tourists. As for the food- black pasta, langoustines and risotto were perfectly cooked with the right amount of flavour and seasoning for us. The Pana cotta was okay and the frozen fruits with ice cream was amazing. Highly recommended based on our visit.More

Just go to try the food and you’ll know why I give 5 stars for this restaurant. Especially, the lady with long black hair whose service was exceptional. Could not fault our experience tonight.

Great vibes, food and wines, service is efficient and smooth, which may explain the success of the place (reservation mandatory!) Primo around 12-15€ and seafood or meat at 20-24€. Overall an excellent diner.

Beautiful little restaurant close to the Spanish Steps which has everything you are looking for: amazing fresh Italian food, wonderful, cozy atonischere and excellent service. We enjoyed a very special Birthday dinner and we will definitely come back at the next occasion.

Definitely reserve ahead. I found a vegetarian dish there and it was awesome. Can’t recall exactly what it was but the food is so good there you can’t possibly make a wrong choice!
