“Mediocre food and poor service!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I have no intentions of returning to Jimmy Colombo's Restaurant! The food tasted like Chef Boyardee right out of the can. It is much cheaper to buy it at the grocery store and heat it in the microwave at home (if you like it, that is)!!

“Average Italian restaurant.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

Like another reviewer said, the parking lot was full. It's also a tight squeeze to maneuver around in.
The good was average. The salad was lettuce with tomato on it. The best thing about the meal has already been stated. It's the bread.

“fun atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We met a group of family members from the area here. Waitress was great! Food was average. One family member had pizza (which looked delish) I ordered eggpland parm. , the sauce was good, Eggplant was crispy, no fresh cheese to top it with. Would have to say it is average with a slightly higher than average price. Salad was iceburg.

“average italian food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

this restaurant has been around forever & so I decided to go while in town visiting. The Antipasto Salad is a MUST and it was just like I remembered it. The lasagna that I had was really kinda bland and average. My father had spaghetti with meat sauce and said the same. It's like something is missing in the sauce. Neither of us finished our meals due to the lack of flavor. The service is great and there's plenty of seating, just not plenty of flavor.

“Atmosphere great, food not so much.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Several friends recommended so we had to try. Those with us who ordered a pasta loved it. The salad was ok but it was just lettuce and tomatoes. I originally ordered the shrimp. It was horrible. I couldn't eat it. So then they brought me a steak. It had no taste what so ever. My friend ordered the steak too. She agreed that it was t very good. The chicken Alfredo and spaghetti was great.
