Why just watch The Soprano's when you can live it. The days of dark, windowless restaurants with tufted, red-leather booths live on at Colombo's. This is a place where I'm pretty sure everybody who works there has a first name that ends in "ie" or "y" as in, Vinnie, Tony or Angie. What makes the place even more endearing is that their food is great. No, you won't find any arugula, black truffles or citrus-garlic aioli here, but you will find great Italian dish, pasta and sauces, perfectly cooked steaks and huge, expertly-prepared cocktails. This place has been around for over 55 years and there's a reason it has lasted. They also have live music. The night we were there they had a jazz violinist with a piano accompanist. They were just the right touch, with a repertoire that spanned from the 20's to the present with a little classical music thrown in just for good measure. This place is not just a restaurant, it's an experience, and an authentic one at that.

My family has been coming here for years. Good service good food and love the live music. It's old school.... red leather booths, piano playing in the back ground all it's missing is old blue eyes singing a tune.

This is a local restaurant that has been around for years. We live close by and went years ago and didn't like it... too dark and smokey (that's back when smoking was allowed!). This past year we started using 'restaurant.com' certificates to go there, and found we love it. The food is always good, it is no longer smokey and so the dark atmosphere is cozy.

However, in December they decided not to honor the restaurant.com certificates... we left without eating as the one thing that has not changed is that they are just too expensive. Too bad.... we did enjoy going but won't any more.

Parking a bit challenging (lot small); not much street parking available. Often busy. Service sometimes slow. Live music at times. Good food selection; generous portions. Prices moderate.
