The tables were clean and the workers were nice with us. We ordered sandwiches which were very good and coffees but be careful because you have to pay extra if you sit at a table

This was a real treat for me during a hot afternoon walk. The restaurant is beautifully decorated. I can't speak to the food bt the gelato was very, very, good and beautifully presented.

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
