We love this very stylish cafe, close to the Colosseum, open for lunch and dinner. We have been several times, and are always amazed at how good the food is. The pasta dishes are simply wonderful, and we use this cafe as a benchmark where ever we go to eat. Its all very good food, impossible to imagine being disappointed.

We stopped off in here after dinner in a very traditional Italian restaurant - place was very modern and full of a mix of young Italian/tourist crowd. First cocktail ordered was far too strong but second Tom Collins was delicious, good variation on menu. P.s toilets were really nice which is actually rare in Rome

This review is only about the bar and not the restaurant. Among the uninventive and often plain horrific Rome cocktail bar scene, sitting on a bar stool at Propaganda you can be forgiven for thinking you are at Employees Only or the Bemelmans in New York City. The Propaganda sources some very interesting ingredients, mixers, vermouths, sugars and essential oils... More

We were ushered into restaurant area and ask to leave when our order consisted of coffe and cakes. Cakes were good but not amazing and overpriced. Decent coffee. Quite friendly staff.

My girlfriend and I visited this restaurant/bar for after-dinner cocktails on our last night in Rome, but when we saw the crowd enjoying what looked like great food we wished we had come for dinner. Will definitely make a dinner reservation next time we are in Rome! The cocktail list is very contemporary and the attentive bar staff are open... More

We had lunch here during a visit to the area around the Colosseum. The service was good and the atmosphere lively. I had the hard (quite soft) boiled egg with porcini mushrooms in a cheese sauce. This was very nice and with bread constituted a good light lunch. I sampled my wife's vegetable (spinach) omelette, which was excellent.

Liked the look of this place, which was a little more thoughtfully designed than other places in Rome. The food was good but uneven. The pasta was al dente to the point where we wondered if it might actually be a tad under done? Service fine as well. Had that, who do we find when we want to leave experience... More

The food is nice, quite expensive though, the staff were so rude, snatching the menus and not making any eye contact, tutted when we asked for more drinks. Not impressed.
