we returned for a second indulgence in this wonderful restaurant. Relocated but still within walking distance of the temples. I recommend to you...

Restaurant is set back a bit from the road, which gives it a tranquil feeling. The lawn has lounge chairs that can be a good place for a relaxing cup of coffee or tea. The food is very good here, local selections prepared well and sometimes with a little bit of a twist. The octopus salad appetizers (insalata di polpo)... More

Outstanding restaurant, food, service and ambiance is great, but my 5 rating comes from one dish -- the mixed seafood appetizer. Truly creative and beautifully presented and wonderful combination of flavors and texture.

My friends and I had a full meal (appetizer, pasta, fish, desert and wine) at this restaurant near the ruins. The food was very good and not expensive in comparison with Rome. The place is large and has outdoor and indoor tables.

When they were opening up. Actually heading for another established spot that gets good reviews ... but it was (unexpectedly?) closed. So we wandered back to Il Gallo and asked to look at the menu. They had a private party in the gorgeous gardens out front ... but welcomed us into the resto. Nice local wine to start. Then shared... More

Garden, Terrace and lounge on the ruins, coolness of the vegetation, close by parking where you easily park and watch your car, this lace is all about welcoming the guest. Then the grading effect of the multiple levels of the dining hall, and finally, once comfortably seated, the exquisite menu cards, and the fire fly advices of the owners. We... More

This restaurant has a beautiful view out to one of the temples, strikingly lit up at night. The food we had, while not among the best that we had in Italy, was all good, fresh, and nicely presented. The locally produced mozzarella di buffalo is especially noteworthy. The service was friendly, and it was an overall pleasant evening. It was... More

We came here on the recommendation of staff at Il Granaio Dei Casabella and we weren't disappointed. You can enjoy a drink in the gardens before what was a very good and reasonably priced meal.

The atmosphere of the place was nice. It's in a perfect location to the ruins. We were enjoying the food of Italy immensely during our trip so we had high expectations coming to II Gallo e la Perla. We felt let down with the service, food quality and presentation. There was only one other couple in the place besides us... More
