A small restaurant completely off the beaten path but oh, so good!!!! Delicious, simple, authentic Italian food. Great selection of wines and very fun and hospitable service. Highly recommend this restaurant for dinner. Call them to make reservation, it gets booked fast.

Just in the center of Rome, you find this Osteria settled in a smart-casual atmosphere. Although it’s ambience is undoubtedly more luxurious than other, prices and tradition are respected. I’ve loved to taste Cacio e Pepe and eggs with black truffle. The waitress, was very...More

We had the Roman carciofi to share (delicious and served with crispy roast potatoes) then the carbonara and fusilli with artichoke and bacon. Both pasta dishes exceptionally tasty and rich without being overwhelming. Would definitely recommend!

Although we`ve been past on the street many times we only discovered this restaurant recently. We will have to make up for lost time! The antipasti were delicious without being too filling (especially the chick peas and fagiolini). My lasagnetta with asparagus was so delicate...More

Food was very good, but soon after we sat down our waitress asked us several times, “are you ready” as we pondered the menu. Dishes were brought promptly, but our plates were whisked away before we could savor our last bites. It was quite shocking...More

We've been in Rome for 8 days so far, and this was our best meal (of many). Tucked away down a little alley, but not far from the Patheon, we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. The carbonara was good from first bite to last. We also...More

This was recommended by an Italian friend - make reservations and go! The food was amazing - from the caprese salad to the pastas. We ordered a couple of the pastas to share so we could sample and didn’t regret it. Leave room for tiramisu....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

Hi, Beth! 6:00 PM is awfully early for dinner, in Rome. As a matter of fact, Osteria del Sostegno's evening hours go from 7:30 PM—11:30 PM, Monday through Saturday, closed on Sundays. Good luck!
