Dinner here with a friend - stunning garden setting and fabulous food - I had the lamb lasagne and my companion had the pumpkin ravioli - both were outstanding. Prices a little high by Ubud standards, but super cheap compared to home for most of us I'm sure 😀

Beautiful setting in a lovely garden. After eating some excellent pizza and pasta in other parts of Bali we were very disappointed with the average pasta and not great pizza. Feel it is quite overpriced for the quality.

Won't call it the best Italian food ever but its pretty good Italian food in Ubud. The ambience, hospitality and the place itself is amazing. Nice break from the busy cafes on the main streets. We enjoyed our dinner.

My husband and I started off our meal very happy. The ambiance was great and I had a wonderful salad and he loved his mushroom bruschetta. I ordered the crab in vodka sauce for my main, but was given a pasta without crab or vodka sauce - just garlic, oil, and tomatoes. We told the waitress, who brought the manager,... More

As others have noted, this terrific restaurant is a peaceful haven just three minutes' walk from the busiest corner in Ubud. Amazing setting in a water garden. Wonderful food and service. We loved Il Giardino. Recommend this for lunch, dinner or a restorative break from bustling Ubud. One of the nicest places in town.

One of the best meals I had in Bali in the most beautiful ambient setting. Tucked away and set in the most delightful garden accompanied by the cutest two resident ducks, the lighting and great jazz music really enhanced its charm. Service was impeccable , great wine list but the food really stands out here. I loved the scallopine al... More

Dinner at this restaurant was a delight. The menu offered all the best of Italian fare you would expect with a modern edge. Every dish was put together with evident care, the flavours beautifully authentic and the presentation beautiful. The resident ducks add the to garden oasis atmosphere. I really loved it here, will come again.

Me and my wife went to this restaurant a couple days ago and only few words can describe it: WE LOVE IT. The team is extremely friendly and willing to help. The food is AMAZING.

It's quiet and tucked away off the noisy main road but opens into a traditional beautiful garden restaurant overlooking trees and river valley. We went for dinner but would've also made a beautiful lunch setting. Friendly Balinese service and I was really full. Try the desserts too...amazing.
