We were craving Italian food and I'm glad we stopped my for lunch. I ordered the eggplant Parmesan which came with a side salad and drink for $10.99. The eggplant was so fresh and tender I could easily cut it with a fork and it was served over pasta with plenty of sauce. I prefer lots of sauce. The creamy... More

Our first visit and we may well be hard to please. More of a family restaurant than a romantic, charming place for a couple to eat and spend time together. Decor was mixed, with the table cloths being vinyal and the overhead can lights being too bright tor the evening. Our waitress was prompt and attentive. The service from the... More

I was here with a large group after a wedding rehearsal. The drinks took forever to come, the food was sub par, and there wasn't enough wait staff allotted to the group. 2 persons for almost 40 ppl the ones we did have were very polite, however. I won't come here unless someone else wants me to, and even then,... More

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.

Old school Italian joint right off the interstate. One of the oldest restaurants in Memphis. Good pizzas....you can not go wrong with bbq pizza or the Around The World. I like to dine in the bar area. Full bar with good draft. Good salad with homemade dressing. Real casual place. Check it out. There are 2 locations in the Memphis... More

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
