“Best place to eat in the dump that is North Camp”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

I was really surprised to find a decent restaurant in North Camp! The staff were very friendly and the food was great. For starters we had calamari - quite possibly the best I've ever had and then whitebait. For mains we had pizzas and seafood pasta - all were amazing. I don't even really like pizza but these were great, thin crusts and lots of toppings and super fresh pasta packed with seafood. The Italian owner kept breaking out into songs too which was entertaining and gave it a friendly atmosphere!

“Great Food and Company”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Had a beautiful 3 course meal with work colleagues. Would fully recommend any of the veal dishes and the desserts are to die for. Excellent value for money £25 a head which included 2 drinks each. If you are visiting Farnborough and you like authentic Italian food then you will love this restaurant

“A Bit Rowdy (Italian!) With Excellent Food.”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Minimalist decor makes Colloseo the sort of place not to go for a quiet, romantic meal. On the other hand if you want somewhere you couldn't hear a tray of cutlery drop over the many lively conversations, like so many restaurants in Italy, it's perfect.

Good service from staff who know their menu, reasonably priced wine list, will be eating here again.

“Our first meal out in the area”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

We asked for an off the menu starter which they were happy to make us which was nice. Steak was very good, pizzas were great, we couldn't manage a desert! The wine was tasty, great atmosphere in the restaurant. We were served by two different people, the woman was very attentive and friendly but the bloke came across arrogant and rushed even thou they were not rushed off their feet (might of been an off night).
Overall it was a nice experience and we will return again
