Almost polite, but very indifferent and stressy personnel. Tables too close. Very expensive! Better avoid it specially if you have kids wanting this and that! Nice affogato al caffe (€10). Average aperol-spritz (€12), average cappuccino (€5). Better walk some more steps and find something less...More

Recommended by one of our tour guides, Ciampini did not disappoint! We were seated outside on a beautiful and busy day, where the staff accommodated us with a sleeping toddler in a stroller. The majority of the tables around us were filled with locals. We...More

No crowds, just peaceful outdoor seating in a large piazza surrounded by beautiful shops in all the sude streets. Nice to have a coffee/pastry, cocktail or wine here, all very good & not overprized. Open late evening for a night drink. Very friendly staff. Lunch...More

We stumbled upon Ciampini by accident while looking for a place to have a Negoni. Lucky us! This was the perfect spot to sit at the bar and enjoy a delicious cocktail. It was also nice to not be surrounded by tourists, felt more local...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
parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty
face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural
