Parioli is the least touristy area of central Rome. It is a hilly neighbourhood that includes the Borghese Gardens and is distinctly quiet, low key and pleasantly tree lined. You will not find any restaurants here directed primarily at tourists. However, what you will find are uniformly good restaurants patronized by Romans. Gli Uvili is a very good example. We... More

We ate here, as it's only a short walk from our Hotel Lord Byron. We sat outside on a warm evening. Nice choices of food and an extensive wine list with a good wine waiter. My pasta was fairly ordinary, however the steak I had is one of the best I've had for years. Lovely! The service was excellent.

Terrific "find" - our Hotel Lord Byron Concierge made the recommendation and reservation here. Gli Ulivi specializes in crafting their olive oils, breads, jams, honeys, pomodoro & the animal husbandry is theirs, too. WOW!

Rome is full of relatively expensive and very mediocre restaurants. I took my family of 5 for dinner during our 5 day stay. This was by far the best experience. The food was good, the service excellent and the overall atmosphere / decor was very charming. There is an extensive wine list with a bottle of white starting below 20... More

Greeted by very friendly staff and made comfortable on easy chairs. We arrived too early for dinner but had a drink and antipasti until we were able to order. Great staff and prompt service.

Great service. Outstanding food. Go for the tastings menu. Creative twists on traditional Italian dishes. Be sure to save room for dessert.

This restaurant is excellent all around Great staff, friendly and attentive. The food is spectacular including the items that come from the farm associated with the restaurant. Super the gnocchi di grano arso. The atmosphere is sophisticated and the outdoor tables are good even though Via Luciani is not the best place in Rome.

I've been here twice. First was in December and 4 of us tried their specialty menu of 5 courses and it was outstanding. Tonight I had the piglet with veggies and my friend had the risotto and the pork sandwich appetizers. Everything was outstanding. Momi has been our waiter for both visits and he is extremely attentive and informative on... More

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavor of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
