Walking distance from the Pantheon, easy to miss in a a little hidden alleyway had I not known about it. Barring a pair of tourists the rest were locals always a good sign. The Bresaeola and the house made Tiramisu were amazing.

We were told about the restaurant by a fellow traveller and we lucked out. We enjoyed it so much that we visited twice. It is small and out of the way, and we arrived without a reservation, but because they had just opened at 7:30...More

It is not easy to find but it is worth looking for. It is a small, friendly, good quality osteria that offers genuine Roman food. Nothing to do with tourist menus.

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!
