Visited this restaurant for dinner. It was lovely authentic Italian food and very reasonable priced. Good service would return again

Stopped here to eat as we were leaving Parthenon. Absolute tourist trap. Probably worst pasta we had in 2 week trip in italy. There are plenty more places nearby. Skip this place. Was also incredibly overpriced

A celebratory late night family dinner turned dark. Forget the unedible food, the smell of urine and food that bears no resemblance to the "real thing" we saw the woman and old man working there began attacking a tourist passing by. With no trash facilities...More

I am surprised to see the reviews on Trip Advisor that don't coincide with our experience with this restaurant, and I am glad that I didn't see these reviews first or we would have missed a great meal in Rome. We stumbled on this lovely...More

Went there with the family and had bruschettas and pastas. Most were pretty decent but not with much wow to them. Mild flavors. Even the wine was tasteless. (Maybe I just picked a bad glass of wine?) Service was distracted but adequate. Overall, a reasonable...More

We went there twice. The atmosphere brought to mind an 1890s Paris cafe. It was warm and relaxing, everything in salmon color, charming hostess, food and wine neatly displayed, though the service was often slow. The food was delicious!

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...More

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
