We have been eating here for several years. Great Italian food, super clean inside, and staff is like family. Never been disappointed with anything we have eaten here. Even the drinks are great. The food is very reasonable in price and the staff is helpful in helping you pick out a meal.

We have been to the Colosseum on three different occasions and at all three trips there were issues. One time we waited forever for a table, even though we had a reservation. Another time the food was cold (even after sending it back). And the last time we had poor service in general.

Excellent lunch menu along with affordable prices ($5.95-$17.95) & what an extensive cocktail menu......reminds you of the 1950's & 60's. Beautiful decor but uncomfortable, upright booth seats...... All in all a great lunch, portions, service, meet/greet & prices.

This was our third visit to this restaurant. Our two previous visit went very well with respect to the service and quality of food. This time we were a little disappointed. My wife found a hair in her pasta dish. My daughter in law found the pasta she had was too watery. My son , grandson and I were pleased... More

First time at this establishment and thought we would try the freshly prepared italien food they advertised. We are going to Rome, the Amalfi Coast and Florence in November and wanted to experience "homemade traditional" italian food as their ads stated. I had the veal cutlet/eggplant parmigiana with angel hair pasta and my wife had the chicken & pasta....good portions.... More

I went on my first date years ago w/ my husband & have gone back as a tradition. We have always had good service w/ multiple servers. We have not experienced a bad meal & have ordered different entrees. I am a true italian, therefore more finicky....they have tempted my palette! I enjoy their eggplant a lot! Thank you!

Lunch was very good and bountiful. It was served hot and with a smile. The waitress was helpful and came back often to make sure we had everything we needed.

Worst food I ever had I think I would have been better off getting a frozen dinner from the supermarket.... our app eggplant was cold and very tasteless dry and shredded chese over the top was not even melting, ravioli was the nastiest ravioli I had ever had. The veal was pounded out so much u could not even taste... More

Very mixed meal. Some of the party enjoyed their meal and were vey happy with it, others, especially those who had sea food, were very disappointed. The rubber like stuffed squid was filled with what can only be described as grey goo - very sad that animals had to die to make such a poor dish. There are other places... More
