Visited for dinner on a Saturday evening. Good food, nice salad, pasta amatriciana was very good, veal saltimbocca good, veal chop good, dessert also good. Service was somewhat stern, not very warm and friendly. Will return for the good food but don’t expect super friendly...More

This is where locals go, not tourists. The food was excellent across the board. The only reason I’m giving this 4 stars instead of 5 stars is because we there for the last night of the summer before they closed for 3 weeks. And they...More

This hidden gem was the best we found in Rome. Great pasta, great service, cool back alley location, and no coperto!

This restaurant was just minutes from our hotel in Campo De Fiori. I came across it as I researched top carbonara places in Rome. We made reservations the day of, which I would recommend, as the place is small and fills quickly. We ordered an...More

Small restaurant filled with locals having lunch. Great atmosphere. Staff was very friendly. Food was flavorful and fresh. Nice wine selection. Highly recommended.

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

I had a hard time accessing their online reservation, but calling them was very simple. They speak English and will have no problem understanding you.

Hi, Beth! 6:00 PM is awfully early for dinner, in Rome. As a matter of fact, Osteria del Sostegno's evening hours go from 7:30 PM—11:30 PM, Monday through Saturday, closed on Sundays. Good luck!
