Welcoming service at this cafe/bar/gelateria just steps from the Spanish Steps. Good sandwiches and pastries. Outside tables for people watching. A great start to a Roman day.

Popped in on route to the Spanish Steps. Food was nice, drinks also... but it's quite expensive. Seems to be full of locals so the food must be good. Don't buy a large beer - €18! Although it was very nice!!

Bar Frattina club sandwich: würstel, mayo, tomato and spinach. I'm ashamed to say it, but I did eat it, I was starving. Spare yourself a disappointment and just don't come here.

Between Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain (first right after the Spanish Embassy) is this lovely bar. Enjoyed a chilled Prosecco with tasty nibbles whilst listening to buskers playing classic arias. They also has fab ice creams (gelato)!.

We've visited several times in the last 3 days. When we sat outside we found (apart from being 4 time more expensive) the espressowas cold and had lost it's crema. Stand at the bar...straight from the barista....excellent. Nice fresh cornetti.

Great place to have a drink before diner and you a get a lot of free snacks with your drink. It's a nice location and the waiters are friendly.

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
