We just happened to come across this place in a small piazza near the Pantheon. It looked quiet and not too busy, so we found a table and ordered GIGANTIC beers. An absolutely excellent meal! We were both really happy to have found this place...and recommend it to everyone who passes by! Our server was very friendly and funny and brought out a small beer to match our own medium and large beers. Everyone around us began taking pictures and laughing! (check out my pics for more on that) Check this place out - it's quiet and visited (from what we could tell) mostly by locals.More

This is propably the worst meal I’ve eaten and paid for ever! The bruschetta was tasteless and blend. The beef filet was NOT a filet, I know this was something else, the meat was chewy and tart. When it comes to the cooking skills, I...guess that the chef must have missed the grill meat lesson. First it of all, the meat was completely raw in the thinnest end. Secondly, the cut was so uneven that the meat couldn’t be even grilled. Three centimeter in one end and half a centimeter in the other end - a rookie mistake! So if the thinnest end was raw, guess how the thickest end was, right - raw and cold! The worst thing is that the meat smelled sour. It really tasted bad!!! One beef costed 25€, and I had to pay 170€ in total. With this price level, I have no other option than rate the restaurant with one star. I guess most of you are capable to cook better than this.More

Found this restaurant in a piazza down a back street near the Pantheon. Very popular with locals. Old style restaurant with typical decor. Very friendly staff. Outside and inside seating. Can get a bit crammed inside so do advise getting there early for lunch. Food...is great and they make an awesome lasagne.More

We came across the Antico Capranica by chance. Were made to feel very welcome by the staff and enjoyed a great meal. The next evening we returned for another meal and again had a warm welcome. Now we have eaten here four times! The food...is great- I recommend the spaghetti alle vongolle but everything was great. The staff are fantastic, especially Ariel, who looked after us each time. We thoroughly recommend the Antico Capranica to everyone visiting Rome. Val and Jenny Whellens- AustraliaMore

Found this restaurant off a main road while walking near the Pantheon. With hungry, tired kids in tow we stopped, not expecting anything spectacular. Instead, we were greeted warmly, seated near the air conditioner (a big plus in July!) and served delicious pastas in generous...portions. Service was fantastic and we all left with full bellies. Highly recommend the Pasta Carbonara as it was the best dish of the table (and the best carbonara of the week)!More

Following advice we decided to get off the main thoroughfare to find something to eat. As it started to really rain heavily, we came across the Caffe. The food was very good, with portion sizes very generous. We both had Spaghetti Carbonara (entree) an a...pizza to share and we did not finish the pizza. Would recommend Antico Ristorante Caffe Capranica.More

We came here just by wandering by, and found it to be a very good place for dinner. Menu has a good diversity beyond just pasta, and the beef filet was very good. Salmon was ok but a bit too oily. Starter of Italian meats...and cheeses was good as well, although a bit sparse on the cheese. Grilled vegetables were a nice option beyond rice or potatoes. Service was very good, attentive but not too much. The building itself has a wonderful history, explained at the front of the menu. All in all, a very good place to stop in.More

The best Roman artichoke starter I’ve ever had (tasty but not stringy at all)! Good cocktails and wine. The only downside is that for some reason they seem to have eschewed the traditional Italian short rice (perfect for risotto) and replaced it with basmati, so...despite a nice taste, the rice dish makes you think the ingredients might have been thrown together somewhat haphazardly...More

Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos,
goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross
paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the

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
