Osteria La Colonna born in 1886 was named “La Colonna Infame”, meeting at that time of thieves and criminals.
The traditional home cooking is the strength of a tavern like La Colonna which aims to bring out the quality and freshness of the dishes making us remember those lost flavors. The specialities are prepared with great care by skilled hands and full of passion for traditional cooking.

Osteria La Colonna nata nel 1886 veniva soprannominata "La Colonna Infame", ritrovo a quei tempi di ladri e malfattori.
La cucina casereccia e tradizionale è il punto di forza di un'osteria come La Colonna che punta ad esaltare la qualità e la freschezza delle sue preparazioni facendoci ricordare quei sapori ormai persi. Le specialità sono preparate con molta cura da mani esperte e piene di passione per la cucina tradizionale.
