We have been travelling through Italy and this was one of the best meals we have had. Not only was the food amazing, the host was great as well. We would strongly suggest you go to Sofia when visiting Rome. Enjoy!

We were staying at the Hotel Concordia - right opposite - so this was very convenient for us, and the food and service was great too.

We visited Sofia after a long day walking all around Rome, finishing at the Spanish Steps. Was delighted to find this quiet little spot with lovely food at very good prices. A lovely way to end our weekend in Rome.

The menu is limited and this is usually a good sign. The Melanzane was really excellent, Risotto with Swordfish had the refreshing touch of lemon and the local Roman pasta Amatriciana was very good but heavy stuff. That is normal for that kind of pasta....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

Sofia is our pet dog and mascot,…. a friendly and loving Jack Russell who accompanies us in our adventures. This is why we decided to give our most precious project her name! An intimate, family-run restaurant with very few rules of thumb: a menu which respects the seasons, using the finest of Italian produce, always fresh every day; traditional Italian recipes together with other dishes specially created by our chef, and inspired by the flavours and colours of Mediterranean cuisine; our desire that your lunch or dinner take place in intimate surroundings and make you “feel at home”.
