Fantastic lunch stop!

Popped in for lunch, staff were very friendly even though we had never been there. Our waiter was very honest with wine recommendations and the chicken parm was not breaded and fried, just cooked and covered in a lovely homemade marinara. The salad was also great, had the insalata rusticana which... read more

Everything is homemade. The women who served us made the pasta herself. It was obvious that she takes great pride in her work. There were 3 types of homemade ravioli on the menu that day. She offered to make us a sampler plate of the three. All were absolutely delicious, but the veal and mushroom ravioli was unbelievable! I don't... More

This was our sixth or seventh visit to this restaurant. We have enjoyed the food and service during our prior visits and had introduced several of our friends to this restaurant. The food this evening was great but the service very disappointing. The service got off to a bit of a slow start then got a little better,and the waiter... More

Came here for lunch after walking around St. Armand's Circle. We order the chicken park which was interesting because there was no breaking, yet it was fantastic! Also had the grilled chicken salad and a rustic salad which were both accompanied by a lovely house dressing. Staff very courteous and helpful, even though it was our first visit there. Highly...

Le Colonne continues to be one of our favorite restaurants on St. Armand's Circle. Met out of town friends who were trying it for the first time. We were all pleaseed with our outdoor seating, genuine Italian meal selections and beverage choices. To top it off and to the delight of all -- our favorite violin player entertained.

Sat at a sidewalk table here on an uncharacteristically LOW humidity evening (May 2). Perfect weather, slight breeze, could smell the garlic aromas from the table next to ours. We had a vegetarian pizza that included paper thin slices of eggplant & zucchini and roasted red peppers, plus a very flavorful tomato sauce, freshly grated parmesan on top. thin crust,... More

We ate here twice in a week and both times my husband had the same meal as it was so good! His Veal Pizzaiola was tender and tasty. I can recommend the Linguine alle Vongole and can honestly say that it was as good as the one I had in Rome last year! Service by our waiter Juan on the... More

We visit this restaurant at St Armand's Circle every year, and we have a consistently enjoyable experience. This year was no exception. We arrived shortly after 6pm and managed to get a table outside. The service was great and so was the food - it honestly reminds us of what we've had in Italy and does look and taste very... More

Called earlier that day for a 7 PM reservation at an outside table. Perfect for enjoying the beautiful weather, sights and people watching. Our family enjoyed a few different entrees - pasta, eggplant, chicken and pizza and all of us gave the food excellent reviews. Wine steward was friendly and knowledgeable and did not steer us to a higher priced... More

God awful!!! Would have been better out of a can!!! Sauce was garbage!!! Find a Little Ceasars if you can. Eat anywhere else even if the wait is 6 hours. The wait staff was friendly...but the waiters and waitresses do not make the food. They could probably do a better job then whomever is running the kitchen. Should have sat... More
