We had a nice dinner with the family. The chicken picata was delicious. My choice of pasta was penne and it was cooked perfectly. The desert cart had so many choices. Great experience.

Extensive menu with many traditional dishes. Every night there is a homemade pasta option (which is consistently excellent). The decor is a bit loud and dated but the place remains a good value.

THw Colosseum is quite large and if you ask to be seated away from the bar area either to the right of the host/greeting area there is a strong chance you will have a quiet meal.
