We have always loved Coletta's. Every dish is wonderful. The lasagna is the most filling dish and they give you a lot of it! The shrimp Alfredo is so mouth watering! The veal Parmesan is served with a side of spaghetti. The ravioli is the best I've ever tasted! My friends like the BBQ pizza but it's not for everyone.... More

We went to Coletta's after reading all the reviews, good and bad! Really not real sure what to expect. We went in and were told to find a table and we kept going throught the restaurant to the back and it was a separate room and rather dark. Since it was just my husband and I, that was kind of...

Coletta's is a Memphis area staple/land mark. Why I don't know. I seldom go with out my arm being twisted. There are 2 locations in the Memphis area. Both have gone steadily down in my opinion. The food at the Appling location is very bad. My friend had Chicken Parm and I had Lasanga . Both meals were bland. The... More

This was our first, and will be our only visit. We order the following... App Sampler- partially cold, the rest tasted microwaved Adult Pizzap - the crust wasn't edible and the cheapest freezer pizza crust tasted better. Canned mushrooms, nothing fresh. Adult Eggplant Parmesan- was swimming in heavy sauce. Had to send it back. Eggplant was soggy and tasteless Kid... More

My son and I stopped in about 8:15 to have dinner it was not busy at all for a Friday night. After waiting 10 minutes before the waitress came at all and another 15 to get our order taken I begin to see why. The food was fair, no drink refills at all and the server was none existence almost... More

Service and menu are average. Food was quite good by wine list very limited. Lots of parking and good location a short distance from the mall and hotels on Germantown Road. Was there for a business meeting and the server was good about not interrupting the conversation. Overall good value for the price.

Really, the is Memphis classic. Last time we were in Memphis, in June, we went to the original on South Parkway. The salad there was incredible; the one on Appling..just so so. But the BBQ pizza? As always, just incredible. Service was perfectly acceptable. Kept my tea filled; got me a to-go glass. Love, love Colettas.

Took family from Indianapolis here for a wedding celebration. First the service was the worst thing, I can deal with bad food if you have great service, the server let drinks run dry. I am someone that eats here relatively often. So when I had out of town guests from Indianapolis, I made a reservation to take them to Collettas... More
