As far as pizza in Northern California goes, this is better than most. As far as legit pizza countrywide goes, it's just eh. They're a bit light on the sauce and the crust isn't all it can be. I appreciate the size of the pie and the size of the slices, but it's not quite New York enough for my... More

It looms small and insignificant from outside but so cozy inside. Darwin served us and we felt home, amazing guy! The garlic knots are fantastic and pizza is Mama mia! Really tasty, great pan, real Sicilian pizza! If you are around you do not want to order elsewhere! Buon apetito!

Ordered at the counter on a weeknight and waited about 20 mins for food, which was fine. Did not order pizza, but the pizza smell was authentic New York. Ordered the Crazy Eddie sub and it was hot, but fantastic. Also had wings that were breaded perfectly. Atmosphere was classic New York pizza shop. Will return for the pizza.

I was debating four star or five star, mostly bc the type of food is sometimes considered lower end to a foodie; however, given the genre of food, they absolutely delivered a five star performance. I got garlic knots and a pizza steak sub. For the garlic knots, they definitely went the extra mile- it was loaded with garlic and... More

When we were there, they had Jeopardy on the TV and the question was "what is pizza dough tied into a bun called?". The cook immediately knew the answer because they make the most awesome garlic knots!

I'm not always a fan of hot and spicy food, but the Crazy Eddie is a really good choice. The mix of hot and sweetness is really tasty. The thin crust pizza is also really good. I'm from NY and it's hard to find good pizza in California so this is my go to choice when I visit. They have... More

I ordered pizza from the Colosseum because they claim to make thin crust pizza. The "thin" crust on my "Long Island Chicken Pesto" pizza was average thickness and was spongy. Typically, pizza I get on Long Island has very thin crust that is crispy. The pesto/ chicken combination was pretty bland as well. I would have to say this pizza... More

Great guys, delicious pizza. the "all meat" I swear, is a near religious experience. The cannoli IS a religious experience. Great pizza made by guys who use great ingredients. and? as an extra bonus? no clowns, no video games, no buffet, no silliness. Just a great pizza shop.

We ordered in, in our hotel room - reasonable delivery time. It seemed a bit expensive, but it was a LARGE pizza - maybe 18 inches across, not the medium sized "large" pizzas you get from national chain brands. And, ooh, it tasted good. It was thin style (which I like). If I lived in the area, I'd definitely order... More
