Looking for a place to eat near our hotel in Via Margutta, and they suggested Brillo Parlante. Will return on my next visit to Rome.

Having dined al fresco in Hi Res, this was the opposite although both restaurants are owned by the Valadier. The food was excellent and the wines superb

We came here as a family of six for lunch and were taken down into their labyrinthine cellars to an uninteresting table near the toilets. My first tip would be not to accept a table that isn't outside or on the ground floor. The service...More

It's a very good restaurant, friendly and not expensive. Everything is delicious, also pizza. Booking online is better.

We visited 2 times under a short visit in Rome. First only for drinks, 2nd for dinner. All was great. Perhaps a little busy waiter, but he did as good as he could.

enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
