Good and bad

We went there for lunch and was damn good, so we decided to go back for the dinner as well and it was huge mistake. I do not recommend ravioli but bolognese and carbonara was fine.

Last night in Rome with the family and we were "vacationed out". Had a marginal meal the night before and everyone had different asks for dinner. Literally walked by this place and the guy handed me the card….no intention of going but after looking at the mixed reviews said what the heck…it was close, we were tired and the menu... More

er Faciolaro is more than great food. It's about the people and the experience. Hostess Laura is friendly and sweet. She hooked us up to their WiFi so that we could connect with some friends. We sat down and enjoyed some wine. We didn't have dinner plans yet, butso we started with an appetizer -- fettucini and porcini mushrooms. Now,... More

This place ticks all the boxes. Great Home cooked Italian food and friendly attentive staff. Don't be afraid to ask for what you want. We generally split a pasta course between us, the al'arrabbiatta at €9 is awesome, and then had a meat course each, lamb cutlets with roast potatoes at €14 was my favourite. The mixed grill at €35...

Traveling alone, I have to be careful where I end up, or sometimes just get weird treatment and food...this is about a block from the Pantheon and the girl out front was enticing people in...including me. Funny, she said, "come on in, we're nice".... I kept walking but came back cuz I thought, what the heck? Well, they were. Very... More

I just read on the Italian newspaper that the restaurant has been closed because the management was just a cover for the mafia. I hope that the judge do not damage all the honest personnel that work here and let the place to operate under a new management.

From the warm welcome at the door, excellent service, beyond delicious food and great prices. We ate here most days of our trip and couldn't get enough of the incredible meals. As we were leaving Rome our kids asked if we could go get meals to take back with us. You have to try the Spaghetti Carbonara, it was my... More

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.
