Simple place with a delicious food and very helpful and friendly staff. The place is really at the corner of the Sistina street and is a nice place to have a good family talk.

Small restaurant but very busy. We had pizza and it was one of the best. Their pasta was ok. Would definitely go there again for the pizzas!

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
