At first glance it doesn't seem like much. Mauro the Host/Salesman said to us if we didn't like our meal we didn't have to pay for it as we were walking by. I thought, this guy is crazy. So we decided to give it a...More

Mauro was fantastic. Really enjoyed the food and setting. Bottle of wine and 2 meals for less than 40 euros 1/2 block from the Pantheon. Would definitely go again and probably will since we are staying right next door and here for 4 more days.

I had a lunchtime meal here and sat indoors. Meal was ok, city centre prices and average quality but I wouldn't hurry back. Staff were good.

Mauro got our attention with the cheap menu (you can pick the $10, $12 or $15 all inclusive menu). We chose the $12 and it was fulfilling. The best spaghettis a la carbonara I've ever had. We loved it so much we came back the...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
