We were extra charged 10€ for basically nothing, probably for breathing the air in their infectious restaurant. The table was dirty. They didn t give us napkins, just a towel, so they can charge us 3 more €. We ordered tortellini con funghi (fade taste, not salty, nothing special) and pizza diavola (the dough was hard, the ingredients were bad).... More

The food was below mediocre and we got ripped off. The waiter got unpleasant when we challenged the bill, said: "this isn't Mc Donalds" and that €28,- for a plate of 4 slices of (rancid) parmaham and 4 slices of Salami was normal price in Rome, cause that's apparently what you get when you order 2 bruscettas.

Sorry to say it but we were totally ripped off. We were in the area waiting to meet a tour and were charmed in. This is rip off Rome at its worst. Owner's false charm is as authentic as the food. All round awful experience, and in common with other reviews we walked straight into worst scam in Rome. Awful... More

I went back just for the porcini and arugula! It's halfway between the Spanish steps and via veneto....of course it's not cheap...neither are the porcini. Definitely recommend.

Seemed very friendly and the bruschetta was good. Downhill from there: the owner was very pushy about what we chose and offered my wife a glass of wine. When it came it was half a bottle in a very large glass ! The main course was a decent size but no more than average in quality and the pasta was... More

What you have read from the other people complaint is absolutely correct. We ordered a 12€ pizza, 16€ piece of meat which came with a 6€ of very plain salad. 4€ for a bottle of water. Draft beer that I was told that is 5€ so I ordered it but charge me 7€. When I complained that I was told... More

Everything taken into account disgusting is the not strong enough word to describe this place. I will discount all else as it has been thoroughly criticised by other reviewers. I am Indian and went to this place with a female friend of mine who is also from India. Unfortunately the waiter (who appeared to be of south-Asian origin and spoke... More

We had just arrived in Rome and were looking for somewhere good to eat. Looking at the outside menu the owner approached us and persuaded us to go inside. He basically chose our meal for us, which we didn't mind at the time as we thought he knows what he's talking about. The food was very nice. Pasta was amazing.... More

Do not go to this restaurant at all! The owner is a criminal, cheater, and so manipulative. He does not speak English at all, or maybe pretends that he does not understand it. It was a bad experience that I had in Rome. I went to many restaurants and Cafes during my visit and they were all lovely, except this... 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.
