Colosseum usually has very friendly people and owners working. Their bread is excellent, their salad is poor. The soup we had (minestrone) was out of a can and not very good. Chicken Diane and a similar dish are decent. Their pizzas are huge and great...More

Manicotti - velvety smooth filling inside tender pasta. Hard to find as authentic as this in Texas. The tomato sauce was sweet and chunky then topped with cheese. Wife had a spicy chicken dish (can't remember the name) and the chicken was tender, perfectly cooked....More
