“Cannot be the best steakhouse in Rome”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We found the meat tough. It was supposed to be the best part of the filet mignon. That is what a chateaubriand is. But the meat was tough. It probably was another cut of meat. I am surprised that this restaurant is rated as the best steakhouse in Rome.
My conclusion is that in Italy you have to order pasta.

“Absolutely superb.”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

In a fairly quiet side street in Prati, lies Il Belli wine bar and restaurante. Prati is a very nice area, which looks like it's for the wealthy.

The establishment is modern inside, comfortable seating. Impeccable service.

Superb food and wine. The profiteroles are pretty special!!

“The Most Amazing Steak & Service in Rome”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

From the very moment you walk into Il Belli, you are immersed in contemporary glamour and style. The whole restaurant oozes class!

Then wait for it... you order your food, and this too oozes class, style and a service you would not find down any old street. We went here not knowing much about the place, and had read a few reviews... but seriously this bowled me over.

1 Kg of T-bone... followed by good wine and desserts! Seriously divine!

This needs to be visited!!!

“Delicious!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We visited Il Belli on our first night in Rome and were very happy with our selection. We shared the "beef carpaccio Il Belli" as a starter along with the homemade bread (which is incredible!). My husband had the Scialatielli pasta with clams and it was delicious. He also had the grilled veal which was good but nothing special. If we go back we'll order the T-bone steak that you cook to your liking at the table because the people next to us ordered it and it looked and smelled incredible. I had the Ravioli Borragine which I loved, along with a side of insalata radicchio ( they bring a cart of olive oil, balsamic and sea salt so you can dress your own salad). For dessert we shared the Tortino Cioccolato which was AMAZING - a chocolate lava cake like no other. The service was good and the atmosphere was nice - but check your bill as I just realized they overcharged us on our wine!
