Places like this can give you a feeling for what cafe life was like in the past. Plus, if you stay awhile to enjoy the atmosphere, you will probably get to see a number of characters from politics or entertainment - all depends on the day. Doesn't matter if you understand Italian or not, you will see people coming in... More

While looking for a nice coffee place to sit down, we somehow came across this cute, quiet little place in a tiny plaza, which is JUST the kind of place my wife and I like to stop for a caffeine pick-me-up. We sat outside. The waiter was "quick and efficient"- I took it more as "hurrying and rude"; however, despite... More

Stopped in for lunch just before busy time. The coffee (americano) was excellent. My omellete was truly the worst I've ever eaten. Tasteless and tough as shoe leather. My wife's chicken salad was good, but unispired.

We tried caffe latte and a cake with chocalate and almond. The cake was ordinary but the coffee was good. The atmosphere is great and really comfortable. Wifi is a big plus

We were staying in apartments along the street and this was where we came for breakfast. The cafe is beautiful inside and the staff were great. You can tell they do things right as the place was packed with locals getting their early morning fix before heading for the office. It was most entertaining watching them at the area near... More

The lines at the (coffee) bar can be three abreast and several persons deep. Every morning. You can wait in line, or ask to be seated at a table. Either way, you won't be disappointed.

Over the past few years, every time I was in Rome I always tried to visit here at least once. This is a gorgeous cafe inside (the terrace outside isn't bad either) The coffee is outstanding and the service is impeccable. This is a high end cafe that should not be missed. By the way, the pastries taste as good... More

Would deserve a 5 if waitresses were a bit friendlier... Café was good but pastries were nothing of extraordinary. Still a good bet in the neighborhood for breakfast.

Staying in Colonna

Neighbourhood Profile
Colonna
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 storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
