I liked it

We were staying at the Lord Byron Hotel, which was about three blocks away and wanted a nearby, casual restaurant. This was what they recommended.. Not crowded (We were early) The food was very good, and the waiter, Momi, was so charming, friendly and helpful. wI'd go again.

We eventually found this restaurant after walking from our hotel. We were welcomed warmly, sat at a table and the whole concept explained to us. Our waiter was friendly and informative but not intrusive. We decided just to have main courses ( lamb and steak) but after ordering a number of free tasters were brought to the table. Our meals...

I had dinner here with my family just before Christmas and was positively surprised by every turn of the evening. The dishes, including the little in-between dishes, the wine and ambience were all exceeding expectations. I warmly recommend this restaurant.

Fantastic place in Rome if you're looking for something unique and off the beaten path. We were guided to this place by a nice waiter at a restaurant near the Colosseum when we asked him (as a "Roman") "where would you go out to eat." He didn't hesitate and suggested Gli Ulivi. It is a distance from the center of... More

Gli Ulivi is a funky restaurant on the northern side of central Rome just near the Borghese Gardens and the Lord Byron Hotel. It is a trendy funky restaurant offering an interesting twist to italian cuisine using many ingredients made on the premises. We had their gnocchi, meatballs and then a main meal of their seafood (rock fish) soup. The... More

We showed up with a party of 5 at 8:30 with no res but they seated us right before the big rush of locals. Started to look pretty sketchy as the bartender was "too busy" to make cocktails and we waited a long time to have our order taken. But apparently this was just a side effect of the rush... More

The waiter didn't know English very well but they tried their best to understand us and provide us with the dishes we want. The food was really high quality and very tasty.

I loved this place- the food was great and more original than the usual neighborhood eatery in Rome. The waitstaff was great. And the setting made us feel more like locals (small, neighborhood feel).

This is a popular restaurant and you may need to book. Very good interpretation of the Italian menu given with an excellent knowledge of the food. Lovely atmosphere and food presented and tasted wonderful. Price was good only bad point was they were so busy it took half and hour to get the bill.

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
Parioli
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.
