just ok

I attended a rehearsal dinner here. The room was nicely done and the menu selections were good. The food was just so-so. I had ravioli and spaghetti and it was not hot. If it had been hot, it might have been better. The strawberry cheesecake was excellent. If you have a large dinner, request... read more

I really, really wanted to like this place, but after two visits it's just hard to recommend. Shrimp Alfredo had no flavor at all and was really soupy. It just tasted like jarred sauce - the Shrimp Diane, while it had some spicy heat, that was the only flavor, no depth at all. The Lasagna, this was actually good, it... More

We ordered the famous BBQ pizza and were terrible disappointed. Absolutely no flavor. Bland. The service was extremely slow and the place could stand a deep cleaning. Not sure the place would still exist without the Elvis connection.

Had several items and was not impressed. I have loved this place for a long time and it was horrible. Manicotti had water residue around plate which was odd and i don't want to make assumptions but frozen items have water residue mostly. Very disappointing.

This restaurant has been a Memphis favorite for over 40 years. Their Bar B Q pizza is to die for. We started going here when we went to Memphis State back in the late 60's and we still go back every time we make a visit back to Memphis. It is one of those hidden gems that the natives go... More

Wonderful little pizzas loved by our group of 10 on Super Bowl Sunday, just the right size for our munchies.

I came to Coletta's on Monday after a medical procedure that kept me from eating for two days. I had never been before but really wanted pasta-specifically the Roman Holiday (ravioli, lasagna, and alfredo). The restaurant wasn't very busy at all, but it took our waiter several minutes to appear and ask for our drink order. When our food arrived... More

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
