Starting with the positive- the food is above average for mid range Italian restaurants in Rome. Seafood options were fresh and the menu showed a creative bent that was a refreshing change from the common choices aimed at tourists. Prices were a bit higher, but...More

Excellent location, close to Fontana di trevi, the food was very good, carbonara was excellent, very good selection of Italian wines and the service maybe the best we had the last week in Rome.

Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos,
goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross
paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the
