Don't be in a hurry here!! My husband and I asked for a pizza recommendation at our hotel and were sent here. Took forever to get seated. In fact we had to eventually ask to be seated. Locals were seated before us. Waited ages for a menu and then when were balked at for our menu choices which we then... More

On a rainy day in Rome, we sought shelter and a quick bite in this restaurant. We were whisked through to the rear (its much bigger than it looks!) and seated. We had very nice, fresh pizza and local wine and thoroughly enjoyed it ! The staff were excellent, spoke great English (and German and French !) and looked after... More

This restaurant with a very pleasant outdoor seating area is set in a perfect piazza away from the noise of the main thoroughfares and more touristy restaurants in this part of Centro Storico. At this time of year if the sun shines then the tables should be bathed in sunshine around 14.30 but allow for the advance into the summer... More

My woman and I chose this restaurant for our final dinner in Rome based on recommendation from a couple of friends. We were not disappointed. I chose the pollo speziale with rice, and I can assure you that I was full when I left. My woman chose pasta, and she was happy. The locale is white-walled with fluorescent lighting. I... More

My husband (now deceased) and I found this restaurant in a TWA guide book for inexpensive and different Rome. I have returned many times over the last 45 years. I adore the square at night; hidden with flower draped balconies around it. I love the home made ricotta in a big white bowl. I order whatever I see others eating... More

Stopped here for a drink on the way back to hotel. We asked for wine and a few nibbles. We had a bottle of red wine, 2 glasses of white with some olives, bread and mozzarella balls. The bill came to 87 euros and was not broken down as the nibbles weren't part of their menu. Partly our fault for... More

Cozy location in a small square in front of a magnificent church just few steps from the pantheon. The food is delicious, especially the carciofi alla romana but 6€ each. A coffee 3€ and a bottle of low quality wine 20€ is too much. The overall cost was more than we'd estimated. Staff members kind. Thanks.

My friend and I happened upon it one evening sometime after 9:00pm. There were still a few groups and some couples outside. It was in a fantastic outdoor setting. We were waited on promptly and had excellent service with a smile. I am still going through my notes of our trip in September 2016 so am remembering as much as... More

We arrived about 9 pm, and they welcomed us right in and quickly brought a trio of delicious appetizers, including bruschetta. Our kids ate the 1/4 chicken and potatoes, and my husband and I enjoyed spaghetti. We would order everything again!

My colleague and I have visited this restaurant three times during three work trips to Rome. It has a great location, in the wonderful neighborhood near the Piazza Navonna. The restaurant itself is located on a beautiful, quiet square, which it happily doesn’t share with any other establishment. The antipasti are enjoyable, and we’ve made a whole meal of them.... More

Staying in Colonna

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
