We stopped for dinner on our way home from Canada. Amazing! This restaurant is located in a historic neighborhood. Everything was delicious- lasagna, Chilean sea bass with gnocchi, the pasta. Everyone was very pleasant, welcoming, and helpful. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

I have invited several business associates to dinner at Colao's and every one of them has gone back there with me more than once. It is one of my favorite places to eat in Erie.
