Colosseo is THE spot for viewing soccer and other sports on their big screen and TV. Boasting North Beach's largest outdoor patio (seats 49), Colosseo is a great place for a special event.

Diner Reviews
  • "Usually avoid North Beach like the plague, but this place won us over. Mostly because they have a really well-kept secret - a lovely back patio that was quiet and cool on a very warm night. Food was good - about what you expect but with slightly lower prices than most. Didn't really strike us as a tourist trap - good service, actual Italians in the restaurant eating, and decent portions. Four of us split a lovely burrata appetizer, two pasta dishes, and a pizza, and it was just enough. Dishes aren't really large enough to split, but we'd ordered enough to see us through, and would definitely go again. Ask to sit out back, have a nice glass of wine, and relax."

  • "This was a real find for me in San Francisco. The food is southern Italian cuisine form the Calabria region of Italy. The owner and his wife are form Italy and they prepare the food form old family recipes. Everything was fresh, served hot, and had very distinctive flavors of old world Italian. The wine list was also very good as well. They are also very accomodating to make special plates. I highly recommend Colosseo. You will not be disappointed."

  • "We had a group of 8 for a 51st birthday. It was a great event. The food was excellent. The wine flowed smoothly. The service was very good. It was a really nice dining experience. There was not a huge throng of people there, so it made it a bit more intimate. Everyone in our group raved about it."

  • "A very enjoyable late lunch prior to BBB. The service was slightly on the slow side, but very friendly. We weren't in a hurry so it didn't really matter. We each tried something different, and all of us enjoyed our meals. I would definitely return and try the pizza next time - it looked yummy!"

  • "Caesar salad is huge, so we shared it. It's well balanced and evenly tossed. Pollo Saltimbocca was tender, deliciousand had just right amount of sauce, plus steamed veggies. Vitello alla Pizzaiola was also light on sauce (tomato) and very soft meat (three pieces). The service was very good from the very beginning to the moment we ordered a desert - Flute Limoncello which is supposed to be frozen and ready to be served from the freezer. Our waiter disappeared for 15-20 min, and all our attempts to get attention of the restaurant manager (owner?) did not help. Eventually, we received our ice cream in a flute, but it did not taste good enough to forget the wait. Anyway, we'd recommend this place b/c of the rich menu and quality of food."

  • "Definitely did NOT like the feel. Every other restaurant was packed, except this one! (Usually a bad sign! And next time I will run.) We started with ordering Chardonnay and did not receive that! Don't go there!!! Go next door to Calzone's"

  • "We enjoyed the meal at Colosseo but left feeling not quite satisfied with the portion size. We shared an appetizers, enjoyed flavorful main dishes (Veal Saltimbocca, Chicken Parmasean & Lobster ravioli) and had dessert. Although delicious, when we were finished we headed across the street for coffee and Gelato afterwards."

  • "We had NYE Dinner at Colosseo. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. I had the Chicken Saltimbocca, it was just okay. The sauce was excellent. My brother has the spaghetti and home made meatballs. He really liked the meatballs! The tiramisu was frozen in the center. The atmosphere was beautiful and very sidewalk cafe type of feel."

  • "Went for dinner Saturday night, not great, salad came out quickly, but entrees took over an hour, and all four entrees were not very good, bland! We went to this restaurant a few years ago for lunch and it was much better then!"

  • "We had reservations at 7 pm but our table was not ready, finally seated at 7:30. Service was slow and that made us anxious as we had tickets to see a show. Our dinner did not arrive until 8:45, and we rushed thru it in 10 minutes, and boxed what we didn't eat. The restaurant was half full by 8:15, so we could not understand why our food was taking so long. We had mentioned to our waiter several times that we had a show to catch when we were seated. An hour and 1/2 should have been ample for a leisurely dinner to enjoy."

  • "Atmosphere was very welcoming, great classic and jazz blues playing. Customer service was really good and helpful with ordering the right food. The food was pretty good and the quantity plentiful. Great outdoor seating, under the heater, sipping on wine and watching passerby's. We really enjoyed our evening!!"

  • "Ate dinner recently. Sat outside at a table on the sidewalk. Pleasant environment. NY Strip was quite good. The veal pistachio was tough as leather and had pesto rather than "pistachio crusted" as advertised. Reasonable wine list, and reasonable service."
