Typically once or twice a year we stop by for drinks a little Calamari, pasta, meatballs and tender veal. Atmosphere is excellent and the service is good. The owner is always poking his head in and welcoming us again.

I really love this restaurant but the stars just didn't align for us when it took 30 min to make our Caesar salad. It came out badly. Both our dinners were wrong. Our waitress never came back so we were left with no drinks. When we did finally get her and requested a drink she forgot and brought the check.... More

We have visited here several times, and the food has always been excellent. Today was no different. However, there were a few, minor procedural issues: (1)Bread service came with no olive oil, plus the individual butter pre-packs were hidden under the bread. (2)Entrees were served too soon after salads. (3) We had to request a clean fork with the entrees.... More

Back in the 90s we ate here often but stopped going for some reason. (Not because of the Colosseum which has always been great) We have been back a dozen times in the last couple of months now. We have been there for both lunch and dinner and have been very very happy with the food and service. My wife... More

The food was good. Nothing spectacular. Service was poor. She placed her own tip on the bill and charged for things that were not given. Though she was nice, she was an ineffectual and scattered.

I've been going to the colosseum for years. Went last night with my mother and my wife. The tableside Caesar is fantastic. The meals were great as usual. I got my favorite, chicken cacciatore. I only ate half and took the rest for lunch. The only negative comment I'll make is that dinner only came with a couple dozen strands... More

Thought the portions were small. Expensive and the food was just ok. Disappointed. Amalfis is way better.

Very wide offering of Italian food. Had the chicken colosseum. Absolutely delicious. House-made pasta tasted fresh. Large saltwater fish tank in the center of the restaurant was fun to look at while eating. Quiet venue (although we went on a Wednesday evening). Great experience overall.
