Restaurant was recommed by one of my friends and turned to be our favourite place for lunch or/and dinner. Friendly staff and good local food, maybe best ever tasted aubergine with parmesan...

All the delicious meals are like homemade in a typical Italian restaurant. You can find good pizza at many places, but you should go this place for the other dishes and good wine. You will like it. Owner and the waiters are worth mentioning... They treat you like you are their child :))

Pizza ordered by myself and Son Was OK. A grumpy waiter who threw the menus on the table, he didn't give the impression of getting job satisfaction! My son ordered a Fanta and got a can of coke again thrown down on the table. My husband ordered pasta , small and disappointing. It was recommended by our hotel but I... More

We loved this place, recommended to us by our nearby hotel. Great food, reasonable prices and very friendly, personable service. Visited 3 times during our week stay in rome and it was consistent and always pleasurable. If your there during season, try the fried artichoke! And please remember, if you want bread, they will charge you for it.

There were some locals eating there and thought it could be a good option. The food was just ok... pizza was ok and the pasta quality poor. Also small sizes. When they gave us the bill there were some hidden taxes and it ended up in a lot more than we though. I don't recommend the place.

A quaint little restaurant not far from the Trevi fountain We had an early evening meal, as like most restaurants locally , by 8pm most are packed out. Traditional home cooked meals at a good competitive price. Although , as with all other bars the drinks are pricey Friendly staff and a tasty meal

The Restaurant is close to the Fontana du Trevi and looks good from the outside. The Food was normal and average but the service was not really friendly. This made our dinner a little unpleasant.

Staying in Colonna

Neighborhood Profile
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.
