Description: IL BRILLO PARLANTE, WINE BAR - RESTAURANT - PIZZERIA "ALWAYS OPEN" TO NEW FLAVOURS The pleasure associated with traditional food in Rome and creative cuisine blends with the convenience of freshly cooked food at any time of day, even late at night. This is the Brillo Parlante, the restaurant to go to for lovers of good traditional food and good company. Mouth-watering appetizers, pizzas cooked strictly in a wood oven, grilled meats and home-made desserts are just some of the delights offered by this welcoming restaurant. Then there's the wine list, which features over 400 wines from Italy, France and the rest of the world, plus a fine selection of brandies and whiskeys. Il Brillo Parlante is looking forward to welcoming you in its spacious dining rooms or on the outdoor terrace, which is heated in winter. Guests can also enjoy free Wi Fi internet access. Il Brillo Parlante is open until late at night, which makes it an ideal venue for post theatre dining.

“Very good!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

The place is very nice and characteristic, the waiter vas very nice and advised me well about the food. I had pasta cacio e pepe with pumpkin flowers, very good indeed. When I asked for dessert, he brought me first the mignon muffins they always offer at the end, as he guessed that would be enough for me (and it was).

“Good food good value”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

As a party of 7 we were reccomended by the apartment where we are staying.

We had pasta which was the carbonara and the regular meat pasta. At an average of 10 euro for a pasta dish it is good value.

Both were excellent. I had the meat pasta which was quite light with plenty of flavour.

I also had the peppers with anchovy as a starter which i cam reccomend.

Was very pleased when the bill for a party of 7 with 3 glasses of wine was 123 euro which was much better than the 195 euro we paid for lunch at a nearby restaraunt for food that was terrible

“Buonissimo pizza, pasta and people near the piazza del Popolo and the Spanish steps.”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We were greeted warmly by Ignatio, and when there was no outside table they let us wait at the bar and treated the kids to a pizza rosso on the house and had some nice chianti Classico while we waited. We were made to feel welcome and our food was delicioso. All of the waiters and the bartender treated us with friendliness and kindness in this very touristy area which was so nice when trying to find a good place to eat on the fly in Rome with kids.

“7 visits to Rome 7 visits to Brillo”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We have been very fortunate to visit Rome 7 times and have visited Brillo each time. We found it on our first visit and absolutely loved it. We have sent many friends and family to Brillo as well and all have been very happy! Our favorite dish is the pesto pasta but we can't leave without pizza as well.
