Good, not great. Worth a try.

We went to Colors before but I though I should update. It was Friday night so they had some music. At first, it was a very low-key guy playing an electric guitar quietly. After 9, the music got louder, making hearing your tablemates difficult. As for the food, 2 of us had the Eggplant Parmesan... read more

We totally enjoyed our meal. The Brussel Sprout bites were great, an important thing if you only eat brussell sprouts once a year. Our entrees were tasty and attractively prepared. We arrived just as the doors wre being opened and teh service was attentive the whole time we were there. To be honest, my wife says that we have eaten... More

The food, the atmosphere and the staff. Have dined here many times and I would give each category 5 stars each time.

I was shocked at the previous review, "We was robbed." The reviewer gave the restaurant only one star. Then I read and realized they were NOT robbed by the restaurant but their car was broken into in the small usually very safe shopping center parking lot - not the responsibility of the restaurant. I've been coming to Italian Colors for... More

We (a party of five) had a nice dinner with good service. Unfortunately, one member of our party had her car broken into in the restaurant parking lot. Broken glass next to another parking stall indicated that another car had been broken into as well. The parking lot has poor lighting and is obviously not safe. The restaurant needs to... More

Great Italian food at good prices. I have eaten there three or four times and the food has always been terrific. Busy Italian ambiance. Difficult to find if you don't know the area.

Day in and day out, for over 20 years Italian Colors has delivered excellent meals in a friendly environment. Light background music and a broad menu of tried and true favorites makes this neighborhood dinning experience so very enjoyable. They go out of their way to make your visit special. Go and enjoy!

A family group including two of my brothers and our Mom had a lovely round table right when the restaurant opened so it was not too noisy or crowded. My 87 year old mom enjoyed the ambiance and the proximity to her home, as well as the "Big Band" era music playing. She had a very generous portion of spaghetti... More

In a strip mall near the shopping district in Montclair. Tough to spot from the road. OK, impossible to spot. Plenty of free parking. Good, solid Italian. I had a veal scaloppini with ravioli and peppers. Both excellent although could have been hotter. We started with a Caesar salad. Good, but needed pepper. Live music. A very nice touch. Limited...

The food is very good, service is attentive and friendly, and they have an open patio for outdoor dining on lovely warm Oakland nights. We have tried several of their seafood & pasta dishes and each one was excellent. The bonus is the music - award winning Mark Wollenberg is an amazing guitar player. His music adds to the ambiance.... More
