One of the best ice creams I have had in Rome. They are handmade and there are so many flavors to choose from. This very nice, old charm cafe and ice cream parlor is famous all over the world and has a great outdoor seating...More

No crowds, just peaceful outdoor seating in a large piazza surrounded by beautiful shops in all the sude streets. Nice to have a coffee/pastry, cocktail or wine here, all very good & not overprized. Open late evening for a night drink. Very friendly staff. Lunch...More

We stumbled upon Ciampini by accident while looking for a place to have a Negoni. Lucky us! This was the perfect spot to sit at the bar and enjoy a delicious cocktail. It was also nice to not be surrounded by tourists, felt more local...More

Stopped by this place for a quick snack. We both had a pizza style sandwich. Not a bad price and enjoyable. The piazza is lovely, it is a little more out of the regular tourist areas than most places.

Food ok. Not very generous portions. But close to the hotel and a good option if you're not very hungry. From what I saw, the locals tend to mainly drink here rather than have a meal.

Don't walk, run to this place if you want the best gelato in Rome. It's off Via Del Corso near the fashion district and is about a five minute walk from the Spanish Steps. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Stopped for a drink. Hard getting a outdoor seat but got one eventually. Unfortunately surrounded by smokers so was surrounded by smoke.. Nice cocktails with small side dishes. Service was also pretty good

The food was nothing special, the service mediocre, and it's overpriced. It's situated in a nice piazza, and that's what you're paying for. Coffees at €5.30 and breakfast at €35 for the breakfast special!! But what really annoyed me is that we asked for bottled...More

This cafe took a little time to find. We wanted to try the recommended gelato, but decided to have coffee and a snack as well. The coffee and eats were fine. We both then agreed to share a grande gelato with 3 different flavours. 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
