Gone are the days when they table is yours for the evening. This place will rush you in and out of here faster than you can say carbonara. We are not offended by :brusque" service that some may feel is rude. Even for us this...More

Excellent food. The carbonera and bruschetta were can't miss and make sure to get a bottle of the house red. We were lucky to walk-in on Sunday afternoon but you should make a reservation.

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

I had a hard time accessing their online reservation, but calling them was very simple. They speak English and will have no problem understanding you.

Hi, Beth! 6:00 PM is awfully early for dinner, in Rome. As a matter of fact, Osteria del Sostegno's evening hours go from 7:30 PM—11:30 PM, Monday through Saturday, closed on Sundays. Good luck!
