“Great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

I grew up loving to visit colasanti's, so when I had to move overseas for school and had to rehome my precious corn snake colasanti's was the first place I contacted! Luckily the head zoo keeper was brilliant and took her in for me. I go visit every time I'm back in town, and she looks happy as a peach! Not to mention I get a good lunch out of the trip!

The place has really grown since I was a kid, and the atmosphere is still genuine. The chicken is to die for!

Overall its a Great place to visit if your in the area! ( and if someone could snap a photo of my fluffy in the corn snake exhibit, it would make my day! I miss her terribly!)

“Lots to do and see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

Great place to go get breakfast or lunch and sit under the orange, lemon and grapefruit trees. Colosanti's is always re-inventing themselves so its fun to go and see what they have added. If you have kids or grandkids they wil love the petting zoo. Still lots of plants to buy but lots of other trinkets too.

The play area was great and there was a lot for the children to do. We had pasta and chicken and salad. We found the food to be very delicous.
