The food was excellent, the service was perfect and it was a great evening. It is a bit hard to find,but be persistent it is worth it. It is in the ICBC building and if you stay on the big Main Street and walk across the road then turn into an alley like area and go into the building part... More

We've been there 5 times and have never been disappointed by the quality of the food and the service. It is a bit tricky finding because it seems to be located in an office building, but it is worth the effort.

My eight year old daughter and I constantly return to Colabo. It has super delicious food, and when we are needing a 'taste of home', we go to Colabo. The menu is varied, and caters for most tastes. The wine list is excellent and the waiting staff all speak good English so it is easy to converse with everyone. They... More

The restaurant is located inside the city wall in the ICBC building. As one reviewer wrote, it is strange to go through a parking lot to the building entrance. Upon reaching the 11th floor you have to pass a corridor of offices. The restaurant is not big nor fancy. It can feel a bit enclosed because you don't have a... More

TripAdvisor didn't disappoint us - we were looking for NON Chinese food and I am quite picky when it comes to Italian food. But we were all happy with our dishes. The pizza, bruschetta and pasta dish were all very good. The restaurant was hard to find - 11th floor and had to go through a parking lot to find... More

Place is clean and reliable, we went there 2 times in a row. They also have good australian, american and european wines for reasonable prices. Great choice, tricky... More

House red wine according to the boss, was good. Tried the fruit beer recommended, palatable but too sweet for me. Draught tap was quite good. Service was attentive, good & not over bearing, with good comprehension. Preferred 1/2 chicken was going to take 45 minutes....steak not too long. Asked for medium rare fillet mignon changed to medium on reconsidering....received not... More

As we walked out of this restaurant, we saw a few groups of Westerns like us, found this place. Good food and simple deco with fairly good services. Food are fairly priced and freshly preped. No Italian chefs but young Chinese guys. You would have a peaceful evening away from all the crows and smoking. Deserts are great as well.... More
