Good ambiance, Great Italian food, attentive staff at a reasonable price.

Let me say first that this place is in a strip mall. Don't let that throw you. I started eating here 15 years ago and always enjoyed it. My wife and I have 3 kids and for a while we chose to eat a little less expensively and closer to home. This is not to say that The Colosseum restaurant... read more

This venue is an old friend to us! It has a very good wine list, great food and atmosphere! We always sit in the same booth . . . just opposite the Aquarium! Last night we chose an Amarone (made from a semi dried combination of three grapes, Corvina, Mollinara and Rondinella . We always start our meal with the... More

I would have to say that for a little place that is somewhat hidden it is actually really good food. The atmosphere was pretty nice and the fish tank was a pleasant addition.

Visited this restaurant a number of times. Food is good, atmosphere is good. Only negative is they have a guitar man and accordion man who come around and play at your table for tips. Very annoying. Although the food and atmosphere is good I will not return because of the live music annoyance at my table.

My husband & I have just moved here recently and we were looking for a decent restaurant. We tried the Colosseum and were very pleased with the food and the service. I highly recommend eating here.

Great for lunch or dinner! Do not miss the stuffed artichoke app! Service is always excellent and they will make almost anything you want or tweak one of their meals to suit you.

Took my in-laws their for Pam Sunday. We all enjoyed the antipasto platter with a variety of pickled veggies, cheeses and meats. The bread arrived at our table hot with a nice crusty exterior. The shrimp in the scampi were jumbo size U10. The angel hair pasta was perfect as it was enveloped in the butter lemon sauce. I had... More

My girlfriend and I wanted to grab dinner so we decided to try out the Colosseum! We walked in and was quickly greeted by the host and hostess (good start in my book), and they asked if we wanted a booth or table, of course we decided the booth! Sat down in the bar area where the music was going... More

We heard great things about this restaurant so my Mom and I stopped there for lunch. The food was good but something must have been going on because we felt like we were an imposition to the staff. Our server never came back to check on us, nor asked us if we would like anything else. I had my mothers... More

Not many restaurants do tableside Caesar Salad any more and we really enjoy it when a restaurant does so. Tableside Caesar made by either Estafano or Pal is always great! The Veal Francese served with gemelli pasta was excellent. The Vermicelli Pomodoro was a bit disappointing. The Colosseum is a favorite with locals and a place where you never feel... More
