Rehearsal Dinner

Dinner was good but the last time I was there it was much better. Server was very friendly. Small room for a rehearsal dinner.

We had a pretty good salad - both garden and Italian - but the half BBQ/shrimp was not so great. This place is famous for this particular dish, and we suspected the pizza dough was store bought. And it was under-cooked at best. However, the ingredients were very tasty. Service was very good, and the place looks nice as well.... More

Pizza looked and smelled great. Tasted like a homemade. Staff was good. Would not try again. Maybe I should have gotten the bbq pizza.

We were looking for a good, Italian restaurant for our family after a day at the zoo. The reviews seemed good, so we stopped in. I ordered the Shrimp Alfredo, which was very delicious! My husband got a steak, which he seem to have enjoyed, & our children both got the chicken tenders, which was more food then they could... More

Visited here with 4 friends for dinner. Meals were large, but quite disappointing. Table service was not very good, got our coffee first, then orders were mixed up... had to ask several times for the cheescake I had ordered. Second time eating here & I won't be back. Staff were friendly enough, just not too efficient.

Coletta's is what I call home style Italian. Not fancy but basic Italian food that is good. Service has always been good and friendly and food as been consistent and above average.

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.
