Met my daughter and her boyfriend in Athlone for dinner on Friday evening, after driving from Dublin. Il Colosseo came highly recommended by both as they had eaten there before and had been impressed by the choice and quality of food and by the prompt service. They were correct, as It turned out to be a great choice as we... More

Our daughter is at College in Athlone, and she recommended this restaurant. It's in the town centre, above a pub, and next door to an Off-licence (you can buy a really good bottle of wine and bring it up to the restaurant with you). The staff are Italian, and you can see your food being cooked in the kitchen -... More

Gorgeous food, great service and value. You have to try their pasta dish that's baked beneath a foccacia bread, no 21 on the menu. Amaze balls!

Just had a nice meal in IL Colosseo. The restaurant was warm & cosy, but what really made it so nice was the waiter Bogdan, he was so friendly and very cheerful. I would definitly go back and would recommend it to my family & friends.

No matter how many times we visit Athlone, we ALWAYS ensure that we pay a visit to this gem. The food is simply fantastic and is great value. The restaurant is located opposite the Radisson above a local bar, there is an off licence next door and the restaurant accomodates people wanting the bring their own wine. I cannot recommend...

What a gem this is. Lovely staff, I think nearly everyone was Italian and that is great in an Italian restaurant. The food was prompt and tasty. I was thrilled with my meatballs but I admit to food envy for some of the other diners as the plates of food coming out looked amazing. The portions are big and the... More

Went here on Saturday night for the first time and was not really impressed.Staff were lovely,service was good but the food let it down-rubbery prawns and a tasteless pasta dish will not have me running back unfortunately.Deserts were poor too so I'm afraid I can't recommend
