Monk Fish appetizer was so good. Great portion and wonderfully prepared. Service a little slow (at first) on a slow Sunday summer night. But food came out quickly once ordered was well prepared and really fabulous. The flavors were excellent! It's small, quaint, and off...More

We were planning to dine at a different location but ended up being unable due to how busy it was so we looked around the area and ended up at Sofia. The decor was very pleasant as was our server. The food was fantastic. Everything...More

Very nice and cosy restaurant in a relatively quiet setting despite its central-ish location close to the Spanish steps. Service was exemplary - the waiter was very attentive, always appearing when needed but without being intrusive, and very helpful with recommendations. As for the food...More

I waited to write this because I thought midway through our week this would be our best meal throughout Rome and Florence and it was. You will not get a big plate of pasta with a red sauce. Instead, well planned and executed plates with...More

Read some of the low reviews and completely disagree. First, the portion size is perfect. Not sure if other reviewers expected Olive Garden portions and salads drenched in sub-par dressings but that is not true Italian style. None of the salads from Garda to Florence...More

I have had a dinner there, the food was ok, nothing special. The price was too high for the value that we got. Lots of other good places around to eat great dinner for less cash.

The staff were all really friendly with excellent english and were not offended by our terrible attempt at speaking Italian. We sat outside which even though it was on a road made it feel very authentic with a very homely atmosphere. I ordered the swordfish...More

This was the best dinner we had in Italy. Fresh pasta, creative construction of dishes, plated beautifully and inexpensive. Just like the guide books promise, wander around and fall into a great restaurant. This is near the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain.

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

Sofia is our pet dog and mascot,…. a friendly and loving Jack Russell who accompanies us in our adventures. This is why we decided to give our most precious project her name! An intimate, family-run restaurant with very few rules of thumb: a menu which respects the seasons, using the finest of Italian produce, always fresh every day; traditional Italian recipes together with other dishes specially created by our chef, and inspired by the flavours and colours of Mediterranean cuisine; our desire that your lunch or dinner take place in intimate surroundings and make you “feel at home”.
