Cafe Colore has been closed for over a year. The new name is called Tosca Rustic Italian. Awesome food and the decor has changed. 7324622233 is the number. Ask for Erm the new owner. He will prepare any dish you like. Try the crab cakes.

Tried to go there in July only to find out that they had closed permanently. I never got to use the remainder of the gift coupon that we had. Oh well.

So, the six of us go and order six different basic Italian dishes. Three raved about it, but I thought the lasagne indifferent; the soup as well. Bread mediocre. Who are you going to believe, those three other guys, or me? OK, so, let me tell you about the long wait for the food, the so-so talapia and eggplant parmigiana.... More

Have been here so many times and most of the time it's really good. Food and service are "good" but some nights, it misses in the execution. Really like the spot and hope they make it!

Service was very slow and unattentive . Food was ok. The restaurant used to be a nice little local Italian restaurant, but has changed hands a few times over the last few years. The mixed reviews are probably accurate. Why take the chance when you can avoid potential disappointing experiences ? Trying to be honest. Just skip this place.

My husband grew up minutes from this returant and never dined here, but are so glad that we finally did. The atmosphere, food, prices, portions, and service were all excellent! We will be returning again and again.

We ususally never dine out on Valentine's Day or Mother's Day, as it seems like the quality goes down and the prices go up. But, this year, we decided to try Cafe Colore's Prix Fixe, reservations-only, Valentine's Day dinner, and it was very good. The meal included appetizer, soup or salad, entree, and dessert. Portions were not huge, but were... More

We went to Cafe Colore for our anniversary dinner. It was our first visit and won't be our last. The service, food and atmosphere were excellent. A relatively small restaurant with great ambience and BYOB is a plus. Definitely worth a visit to Cafe Colore.

We went on a Saturday night with reservations which they actually accepted, which was nice - most restaurants I call tend to just have call ahead or no reservations accepted. My first impression was how nice the inside of the restaurant looks with several murals and oil paintings hanging about - not what I expected the inside to look like.... More

Been going to Cafe Colore for years. They went from average to very good over the years. Last time we were there food was good, but service was average. Tonight was a disappointment. Called at 6:00 for 7:00 reservations and maitre'd (or whoever answered the phone) attempted to make it sound as though they were pretty well booked, but said...yes,... More
