A great find and very reasonable for just being off the main drag towards Piazza del Popolo. Full of locals (and a light sprinkling of tourists) enjoying anything from a romantic dinner to a celebratory meal. Very relaxed.

Give it try - very tasty, very friendly, well-located. The menu is great and the wine list is also. The restaurant is atmospheric and it was quite full each time we went there (twice) of both locals and tourists.

The food was good, the service was excellent, the atmosphere great and it was well priced. I think this is part of a chain but we really enjoyed ourselves so I'd recommend it.

I must say that of all the restaurants we ate at in Rome, Il Brillo Parlante had the best service. First of all, they are open at odd hours for Rome (meaning they stay open from lunch through late night). Most restaurants open for lunch,...More

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
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
