Had a lovely last meal in Rome. Despite a thunder storm and all diners having to move from outside to in. The staff managed to keep the best level of service. Food a bit delayed but under the circumstances no surprise.

The people who write a review and say the service was terrible don't understand that in Europe the wait staff is to a minimum so they give you time and space. If you need something call them over and they will be fantastic.Our new friend Gavani was awesome to my wife and I when we where in Rome in March... More

This was my best meal in Rome. Delicious sea bass served with potatoes with flavours of fennel rosemary and garlic with steamed artichoke and mint on the side. The chef has some skills for sure. Other delights are the house starters warm olives prunes and flageolet beans and chick peas were lovely. My companion enjoyed his steak cooked medium rare.... More

Situated in spot near the Trevi fountain. Great choices on the menu. Being a typical tourist I wanted some authentic home cooked Italian food and this place did not disappoint. A great find!!

The pizza tasted as if it was microwave heated. Lot of noise from the renovations nearby. Skip this location

High prices for bad food, the meat was tasteless, like rubber, the servings were miserably small. Don't go there.

Prices are a bit high since the location is near the Trevi fountain. A bit hectic, and it took a little time to get served. But food was very good.

Wandered into this place without reading reviews as it was close to the Trevi Fountain and it looked cute. Prices for pastas were reasonable. We had basic spaghetti dishes and they were fine, not exceptional but not bad. We enjoyed the red house wine. Service was fine as it was early and not that many people had come yet. Restaurant...

Queue outside restaurant suggested it must be a good place to eat. Didn't have to wait long before getting a table......quick turnover at tables was amazing !! Enjoyed really good food & very attentive staff. My husband talked so much about the excellent steak & green pepper sauce that he had. We went back two nights later so I could... More

Terrible food, unfriendly waiter. We paid a lot, the meat was uneatable. The potato was cold. Near the Pantheon this is the worst restaurant.

Staying in Colonna

Neighbourhood Profile
Colonna
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very centre of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping centre, 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.
