This place is a nightmare. This old guy gives Italians a bad name. If you have money to burn then you are welcome here.

It looks very nice and local from outside. But you will spend a lot of money before you noticed. They recommended some starter, it looked nice, it was 9 euros on the menu, but it was 9 euros for one person only. The water is 4 euros, and there's a tax/service fee with no reason(about 10%). It is really a... More

Worst service I've ever experienced. The owner was rude and unhelpful. Charged us for bread we did not ask for--or want, and over changed for water (4 euro for a bottle). Food wasn't good, and I was told by the owner that I couldn't share my meal with my boyfriend that was there with me. It's definitely a tourist trap.... More

We were fortunate to have the owner take our order. He made great recommendations and made us feel like we were sitting in our home not a restaurant. He's very helpful, polite and made good recommendations. very authentic.

This is our third night in Rome and we felt that the food was the best we've had. The artichokes were amazingly tender and perfectly seasoned. The soup was delicious. The pasta was homemade and the tomato sauce was thicker than other restaurants which is how we like it. The fish soup was outstanding. A mixture of perfectly cooked fish... More

Reading some of the other revues it is evident that they do not eat out much in Italy. almost every restaurant charges around 2 euros for a service charge which is what you get the bread whether you want it or not. It seems stupid to me, but that is the custome just about all over Rome. Being in an... More

Very friendly welcome to get us through the door but once in was very manipulative to his choices. Once he realised we weren't going to order more than one course he started to become funny with us.

I agree with many of the previous reviews regarding the unexpected charges at the end of the meal. We were also charged for bread that was on our table although we didn`t order it and for "tax". I asked for a glass of red wine and was persuaded to have a small bottle instead and was charged 13 euros for... 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.
