I wish I had read the reviews before I got sucked in by the con artist outside. Rubbish food, terrible service and so many hidden charges. €33 for a basic lettuce tomatoe and mozzarella salad and a serving of mortadella and bottle of water!

As the other reviews say......and I've only just seen them. Tourist trap. Man outside very nice, welcomes you in. Food average, nothing special. When the bill comes, it's hand written, stuff crossed out. It didn't add up.. We just paid, as who wants the stress...More

Echo what all the bad reviews say about this place. The hat wearing owner hides when bill payment time comes and writes his own service charge in! Terrible food to compliment the crooked owner and staff turn a blind eye to this too. Places like...More

When being welcomed, a passer by shouted out "Be careful". Never a truer word spoken. Whilst the food is delicious, the hidden charges in the bill are a rip off. Granted, the meal comes out no more expensive than a meal in say Sydney or...More

This place is a tourist trap! Run away!. The owner shuffles you in all chatty, they're very forceful in telling you what you should order and push starters on you. I got a dirty plate which the waiter saw and wiped the dirt off it...More

We were walking through Barberini, it was getting late and we were hungry. I chose this place at random, cursing myself that I had too long a nap and hadn't planned ahead. The plate of grilled vegetables was pretty good. For main course I hade...More

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

face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural
