I enjoyed the food. It was exactly what I askef for; quality, hot, tasty, not too over the top. I appreciated the service. they were kind & attentive, but not hovering. I loved the murals on the walls, though the staff knew almost nothing about them. I was dissapointed by the marred/dirty walls where paint was cracking off the walls... More

Four of us ate there Sunday night. The restaurant is very nice inside with murals and columns and the waitress was prompt and good. The bread she brought was very good but I was disappointed in the entrees. We ordered eggplant parmesans that came with spaghetti and the sauce tasted just like tomato sauce strait from a can. There was... More

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

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.
