Just around 15 tables, rustique decoration, and great local dishes. Try the dishes favoured with truffles, such as quail egg bruschetta, or tagliata di manzo. The service is very professional and very kind. This restaurant is much more authentic and high quality than the many restaurants in the places which are more frequented by tourists.

When we came to this nice restaurant in the heart of Brescia, we did not expect what we are about. We were served the taster menu of different dishes, nearly all of them from horse meat - the local peculiarity. And it was good and tasty - especially sausages. The prices were reasonable and the experience - unforgettable!

The menu is not extensive, but everything we has was very tasty and well prepared. I... More

We found the restaurant via Tripadvisor, one evening that I was in Brescia with my family. We were looking for something simple, and not too expensive. The Osteria La Colonna was a good choice! In downtown Brescia, few meters from Piazza Della Loggia, this small "Osteria" is in a relatively hidden and small street. The place is quite small (more... More

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.
