“As Good As It Gets!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2011

Green scarves lasagna-yum!- and so much more!! This restaurant is a neighborhood gem . Those who haven't found it yet are missing out until they do! Versatile enough for a family dinner or romantic dinner for two , the congenial host and chef, co-owners, provide exemplary service along with their friendly wait staff. Menu selections are varied and there are also daily lunch and dinner specials. They accomodate large groups flawlessly and your guests will leave happy! A big plus is guitar music most evenings and free parking in the evening in a large adjacent lot. Try it, you will like it!

“Always good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2009

We've been eating at Italian Colors for about four years, and have always had great food and service. Salads are excellent, as are the fish and pastas. Even with the econmic downturn, when so many restaurants are half empty, and even more don't survivie, Colors is still always busy, because they do such a good job. It can get noisy, so your best bet is to call ahead to reserve a booth -- and if you don't reserve a table on week-ends, you might not be able to get in. Prices are a bit high, but the quality is very good.
