Really nice and tasty! Despite my worries about its location (I expected it to be touristic) in the end it proved to be really nice!

Recommended by a friend and had to try. It was the best roast pork sandwich. Place is tiny but eat outside on a beautiful day! Right around the corner from Pantheon. Highly Recommend you won’t be disappointed

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
