The menu is extensive and the food is very good. They serve large portions so be prepared to eat a lot or share. The service was average but the food made uo for it

We ate at three italian restaurants while in Garmisch and they rank as follows: Colloseo/La Baita, Renzo.

Colloseo and La Baita are a tie only because of Colloseo's date-night atmosphere. The service was 100 times better at La Baita.

Colloseo: this restaurant has the perfect atmosphere for a perfect date night. They appear to get busy around 1900 - typical European dining hour - so if you're a family, get in there at 1700 and you will seat without a reservation. We ate here twice during our stay in Garmisch (we're suckers for good italian food) and we weren't disappointed on either experience.

We did both pasta and pizza: overall, extremely pleased. It's near impossible to find a good italian restaurant in the States that can get even just a basic tomato sauce right; not so at Colosseo. We would go back a third time!!

Thank you for two wonderful dining experiences!!

We didn't have a reservation and decided to walk in to see if it was possible to eat here; or at least make a reservation for a later date/time. Well, the people that work here are very dismissive and basically ignored us. Maybe they didn't like the way we looked, cause we kept getting funny stares?!?! I felt extremely uncomfortable and will never ever attempt to go back. By the way the restaurant was almost empty.

We stumbled upone the Colosseo by accident when we first arrived in town for a long weekend...it just happened to be where we found a parking spot!The staff was very attentive and friendly, especially to our three young children! The service was very fast and efficient. The food was AMAZING! We enjoyed our visit so much that we returned for our final evening in town!

An American family with preteen and a 5 yr old, we went because it was near the hotel and rated so highly. Our daughter with a milk allergy was served noodles with cheese. Sent it back just in time to avoid disaster. Neuwein was red, dry, and served chilled, unlike the white, sweet, room temp drinks of the Deutsches Weinstrasse. Wife loved lambrusco(2x!), sweet and chilled. They served complementary tap water when asked. Pizza was big but crust was under cooked. Gnocchi Gorgonzola lacked characteristic bite of good cheese, and needed black pepper and Parmesan to spice it up. The spaghetti carbonara was also "fine," but nothing extraordinary. They did fit us in with a late reservation. Don't sit near the pizza oven, unless you want to bake, too. Italian waiter was pleasant, German waitress curt. Overall, good prices, average food. But the second-ranked restaurant in Garmisch? Doubtful.
