Description: Osteria La Colonna born in 1886 was named “La Colonna Infame”, meeting at that time of thieves and criminals. The traditional home cooking is the strength of a tavern like La Colonna which aims to bring out the quality and freshness of the dishes making us remember those lost flavors. The specialities are prepared with great care by skilled hands and full of passion for traditional cooking. Osteria La Colonna nata nel 1886 veniva soprannominata "La Colonna Infame", ritrovo a quei tempi di ladri e malfattori. La cucina casereccia e tradizionale è il punto di forza di un'osteria come La Colonna che punta ad esaltare la qualità e la freschezza delle sue preparazioni facendoci ricordare quei sapori ormai persi. Le specialità sono preparate con molta cura da mani esperte e piene di passione per la cucina tradizionale.

We wandered into this off-the-beaten-path restaurant and have been back several times, thanks to the friendly staff (not always the case in Brescia with "foreigners") and the incredible food! Truffle pastas, game meats, perfect salame, rich wine.... a quiet atmosphere that isn't trying too hard. Quintessentially northern Italian. We love it. Oh, and the menu is offered in English if you need it, and the staff can help you with any recommendations (in English) too!

Just around 15 tables, rustique decoration, and great local dishes. Try the dishes favoured with truffles, such as quail egg bruschetta, or tagliata di manzo.
The service is very professional and very kind.
This restaurant is much more authentic and high quality than the many restaurants in the places which are more frequented by tourists.

When we came to this nice restaurant in the heart of Brescia, we did not expect what we are about. We were served the taster menu of different dishes, nearly all of them from horse meat - the local peculiarity. And it was good and tasty - especially sausages. The prices were reasonable and the experience - unforgettable!

My first Adress, should I return to Brescia again some day... Simple, yet delicious dishes! He accepted our dogs only reluctantly, although he was almost empty that night, which was a little drawback. But we ate a lot and went in good spirits:-)

We visited the Osteria La Colonna on a Saturday evening, with all the family. This is a very small restaurant, with a nice, typical decor, characterized by a maybe old marble column in the center of the small room. Maybe 8 tables in total. The menu is not extensive, but everything we has was very tasty and well prepared. I would remind particularly the "casoncelli alla Colonna" triangular pasta filled with Brasato. Nice atmosphere, probably better for a romantic dinner. The bill was around 25 euro per person (first, main course, dessert and 1/2 liter of house wine), so very reasonable. The Osteria is on a side road, slightly hidden, few steps from Piazza Della Loggia. I would recommend it.
