Our table was not quite ready so we had a drink at the bar downstairs and were called soon after. It seemed to be mostly birthday parties that particular night in the restaurant. The atmosphere was buzzing and happy. The service was quick and the food was good. The birthday cake was lovely. Staff attentive without being overpowering. It was... More

The food here is excellent, with a wide range of choice. It is located close to Athlone town centre with a number of nice bars in the area. We had a huge wait between meals, but it was worth it. Overall we were happy - and will eat here again - but hopefully management can sort out the service. Parking... More

A warm welcome was missing from the moment we walked in, but sometimes it takes a while for things to warm up, it did not. Four different people served our table of 2 adults and our 12 year old son, only one smile between them. We did not have to wait long for service but it certainly lacked warmth. Our... More

We decided to pay IL Colesseo a visit on recommendation from a regular customer. We were not disappointed. We booked on the day and managed to get the last table on the night. On arrival we were allocated the chefs table which we were happy about. We love to watch the chefs at work it really adds to the meal... More

I came here for dinner on Christmas Eve with my family. The staff were welcoming and cheerful. Every one of them were friendly throughout the night. The food is delicious and is full of flavour. A great atmosphere. This was not the first time I've experienced great service and food here and it won't be the last!

A large group of us visited Il Colosseo for dinner last night. Some of our party are regulars there but it was my first time dining there. I was very impressed by the large variety of meals to choose to from. It was well priced and the portion sizes generous. Waiting staff were for the most part very attentive, however... More
