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

My daughter and her fiancé had their rehearsal dinner there. All of us that sat together had a bad experience. All of our meals were cold. I ask for coffee and when I ask for a refill you would have thought they had to pick the beans themselves. The roll was cold and hard as a rock. The catilloni that... More

1st time visiting after hearing from several co workers raving about the food and my last. I must say the best thing of my meal was the water. We arrive in a slow lull before the dinner rush began and were seated right away. Our server came and asked about our drinks and left right away. Then it went downhill,... More

We had an antipasto salad with Italian dressing which was very good! We also ordered the famous BBQ pizza, I was less impressed. It had a lot of meat on it but not a lot of flavor. The sauce squirted all over the top tasted more like flavorless pizza sauce instead of BBQ sauce, I expected a sweet tangy BBQ... More
