My mother and I ate dinner last night at Il Giardino and had a wonderful experience. We decided to try it out based off of a very good lunch at Three Monkeys Cafe (same owners) and its idyllic setting. It is tucked a bit off the main road in Ubud but still very easy to find, just turn right before the Starbucks at Pura Taman Sari. The walk is actually quite pleasant and a nice break from the busy main road with lots of little homestays and warungs. The restaurant itself is situated around a lotus pond and surrounded by a well-manicured garden. We ate their on a very rainy night, but it did not spoil the setting. The staff was well-trained and very attentive without being over-intrusive. We ordered a bottle of white wine and were pleasantly surprised that the staff took their time and insured that the bottle was the correct drinking temperature, as wine can often be served a little too warm when traveling in tropical climates. I ordered the spinach tagliatelle while my mother ordered the penne al tonno, both were delicious large portions. Overall the restaurant made for a highly enjoyable night.
