We found this location by chance whilst walking around Rome during our first day in the city. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was fantastic. We return for dinner on ours second night and again for our last night in Rome. This is a fair priced location with many items less than 10 euro. I did... More

Had a wonderful dinner of pastas and pizzas. Roberto and his staff were eager to address our food allergy concerns. They gave us confidence that the ingredients would be safe. All of the food was good. Kevin

It saddens me to read the bad reviews. I suppose they are sincere. I've been here twice and enjoyed the food both times. Roberto the owner is a character to be sure, but he offers very fine ingredients which are expensive. And he's a control freak. Maybe not the place for typical tourist looking for a bargain, but if you... More

We chanced upon this family run restaurant one evening and were back for two more visits during our 9-day stay in Rome, so that should say a lot.

Staying in Colonna

Neighborhood Profile
Colonna
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very center of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping center, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
