We have been going to this Colleta's for many years, and still the food is great. I grew up going to the original Colleta's, which was where I first even heard of BBQ Pizza in the first place. It sounded strange, but it "just works" - and tastes even better! The service is great too - hey, they put up... More

We stop in Memphis often and when we do, we always look forward to eating here. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is cozy and the service is outstanding. Great family restaurant feel and have never had a dish we didn't love. The prices are fantastic with what you get. Make sure you arrive hungry.

If it was good enough I knew it would be good enough for me -and it was amazing. We always stop in on our trips to Graceland. Mr. Coletta is so nice and accommodating.

I have recently used Coletta's to cater two different lunches and it was wonderful. Lisa Coletta did a fantastic job with everything! The food was delivered on time, it was hot and delicious. All my customers very happy with the meal. I will be using Coletta's for catering regularly!!

Went for a family dinner. Large and somewhat chain-like atmosphere. Sat us by the drink station even though other tables available. Portions huge including the salad. Service was just ok as well as the pasta. Wine list very limited with only a couple of options. We've since been told that the pizza is a much better choice than pasta. Also,... More
