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.

“Great place if you need some lunch after seeing Piazza del Popolo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

We ordered a mini pizza (which was adequately sized for a lunch), a cheese board with many interesting cheeses, and spaghetti. All of us were satisfied and we found the prices very reasonable. The interior is top notch and it is somewhat of an experience to walk through the twisting rooms all the way down to the bottom of the restaurant deep beneath the streets. Definitely a recommend!

“Very good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

No reservation in a very busy place, but we managed to get in. Food was very good and not pricy at all. We took a starter, pizza, desert and two drinks and still only paid 60 euro. Very friendly service, nice location and athmosphere. Definitely worth the recommendation.

“Outstanding service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

Usually you go to a restaurant for the quality of the food and likability of the atmosphere. Il Brillo Parlante has both however I was also lucky to have Adel as my waiter. Adel treated me as though I was an old family friend and I would go back just to experience his uniquely outstanding service. Adel paired the wines perfectly with the great food and made me feel like I was a KING. Unique pizza and excellent pasta. Bravo!

“Fabulous - marriage proposal in Rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

Not good service? Maybe we were in different restaurant!!!

We have a recommendation from our hotel Diplomatic and it was good choice.

I asked my girlfriend there: Will you marry me? Waiter help me with cover of ring :) And after "yes" waiters made Mexican wave :) Really fabulous and me and my fiancee had tears in eyes...

Pizza? Very good, good ham-prosciutto, fresh rucola...

Wine? Good, before the choice, they allow us to test one.
