We visited with friends. This was our first time since the new owners took over. The menu is impressive. The presentation of the food is excellent. However, I had the bucatini carbonara. The bucatini was overcooked so much so that it was gummy. My wife had the branzino. She was pleased. My friends had another pasta dish which was also over cooked. I told the waiter. He was very apologetic and offered me a complimentary desert. I got the tiramisu. It was fantastic. I will try this restaurant again maybe the chef just had a bad day. The service was good.
The food was excellent and the chef was able to accommodate a requested change. I’m looking forward to returning!
This is a lovely little restaurant. Menu choices are good with mostly Italian offerings. Portions are god sizes and delicious. Service is very good and we always like to have Matteo be our server! Wine selection is great and prices are decent. Ambience is subdued and works for couples. Larger groups can be accommodated as well and there is a small outside patio. A nice place to eat!
Wonderful staff and welcome. Nice outdoor area.
Excellent food and service. It was our first time there but it will not be our last!
Did not have time to try dessert but saw others it might even exceed their entrees.
Very good food ,very flavorful ,well run restaurant ,meatballs were great and I had carbonara and my wife had chicken marsala ,allwas very good and service was very good .
Props to the owner who was filling in on any area that needed help to make things run smooth .
We will be back.
Meghan was great! Looking forward to next time!
I’m actually embarrassed for them. The service was subpar. Good atmosphere. We waited for over 45 minutes for our dinner. We were served two tiny slices of cold bread while waiting. When our dinner was finally served, It was tasteless and bland and salting it didn’t help much. Even the presentation of the food looked like a five year old prepared it. My pasta was cold and both the marinara sauce and Alfredo sauce tasted like they came from a jar. Definitely not restaurant quality. We were so disappointed. We had looked forward to a nice dinner out after working so hard all week and that was such a let down. There are many other restaurants that check all the boxes in terms of atmosphere, service and quality food. Colleoni’s need to step up their game or they won’t stand a chance of staying open.
The only reason I can't give our experience 5 stars is because we chose to sit outside and the noise from the road was occasionally quite loud and disturbing. Otherwise, the food and service was exemplary. Good value as well. Four of us with a bottle of wine was $159 plus tax and tip.
Wonderful waiter, delicious authentic Italian food.
Always love this place! But this time, they were out of Branzino and also any type of pizza which was what we wanted. Changed to flounder special and it was delicious!
Definitely one of the better Fort Myers restaurants!
Went for the New Years Eve experience and they nailed it. 5 delicious courses and we left full and satisfied. The entire staff was so friendly. We enjoyed wine and champagne. A great evening. Plan to return for dinner soon.
The Food was good although a bit heavy on the garlic. The service was pretty bad, we received our appetizers and drinks in a fairly timely manner, but our main meals took an hour to get, just a ridiculous wait. It was not busy when we arrived, yet so difficult to get our server’s attention. We had 5 minutes to scarf our food down before we had an event to go to. I always allow two hours for dining and usually that works out well, not this time…
The atmosphere boded well for excellent food. However, the meals were very average, which was very disappointing. The salads were excellent, but the mail dishes left a lot to be desired. The marsala dish had very little flavor; the veal parmegiana was over-cooked and the cream sauces were extremely heavy and overwhelmed the pasta. We wanted so much to love the place...
Customer service was the only thing this restaurant has to offer.
Pasta should be cooked Al dente and it was gummy. All potions are in bowls, and aside from chicken marsala being grilled, with a creme sort of sauce and no mushrooms ... Portions are small while pricing doesn't match.
Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone who grew up eating in an Italian house. You will be disappointed to say the least. One star is for the customer service ... The chief unfortunately gets the other one based on presentation.
Meanwhile they wanted to charge us $10.00 to cut a birthday cake we purchased and brought with us.
After paying the bill we simply did the next best thing - stopped by Star Pizza on McGregor to pick up a pie and went home to enjoy a slice and our birthday cake.
Cute place. Our waitress was fantastic.
Four of us. Went on Wednesday, 715 reservation. First time coming after new ownership. They were out of pizza, a fourth of the menu, but never told us there was no dough till we tried to order it. Also only one eggplant dish left, again discovered only when we tried to order two. We had salmon (decent), eggplant (ok, more like eggplant lasagna), chicken parmigiana (ok, a bit overdone), and porcini mushroom ravioli (delicious but a very small serving for an adult). As you’ve gathered, a big disappointment compared to our first visit years ago. People very nice, server attentive.
Was a great experience would recommend this to anyone who wants a good night out
Excellent and prompt service, wonderful food (the bread was wonderfull, too!)wine list was appropriate, the place is simply a jewel! We will be back!
the chef would not make minor changes to a pasta dish even though the restaurant was relatively empty
Pizza was more like bread then pizza..very thick crust...when asked they said it was a medium crust!
Service was outstanding. The hostess even opened the door for us as we approached. Friendly staff. Nicely designed small cozy restaurant. I had the branzini which was outstanding.
Food was great. Will be back again
Great atmosphere and food
From Naples. Went to this restaurant before show at Barbara Mann Theatre located in Fort Myers. Food was outstanding! Had the mussels and Osso Bucco. Other diners had Fish, and ravioli. Everything was so delicious. Cute little setting. Meal was such a great value. Four diners/ $50.00 bottle of wine and the total bill including tip was $250.00. Very reasonable. Best Italian I've had in my 6 years in SW Florida. Well done!
Absolutely superb food and service
Very reasonably priced
It is a no brainer to return to this wonderful restaurant
Thanks for this feedback! See you again soon! :)
Actually, nothing special. We were not impressed with food and they ran out of the special of night at 7:00 p.m. Bathrooms outside of the restaurant; never heard of having to actually go outside to go to restroom!
Bonnie, We strive to ensure that we provide excellent food and service to all guests. We are pleased to hear the special was in such a high demand that night however we want all of our guest to be able to enjoy it. We will start prepping for a higher demand for the future. Unfortunately the bathrooms did come with the building and was something out of our control, we did try our best to make that area more welcoming and we hope you appreciate our efforts. We hope to see you in the future.
The remodel and new menu are definitely worth checking out. We tried several items and everyone was pleased with the taste and appearance of the food.
Thanks Linda for this awesome review! See you again soon! :)
Amazing experience, food and service were impeccable!
Thanks sam! we are glad you enjoyed!
Everything was great, the wine selection has something for everyone and in every price range. Service is friendly and efficient. Food is excellent. Can't wait to go back and try another dish.
Tammara, thanks for stopping in and leaving this nice review. We look forward to serving you in the future! :)
The restaurant has been beautifully redecorated and is the lovely. The service was outstanding and the food was very good.
Thank you, Vicki! :)
The quality of the food AND service was incredible! It’s a small venue so I suggest making reservations.
This is second time we have visited the restaurant since new ownership and the first was great experience and the food but the second time the food was terrible, my husbands dish and mine was not prepared to our expectations.
Katy, we are sorry to hear the second time was not up to par. We strive daily to provide excellent and consistent food and service! we hope you will give us a chance to serve you again!
Colleoni’s has always been wonderful and I wondered if it would continue under new ownership. I have to say, it’s even better now!! Our whole dinner, including dessert was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent! Our waitress was Angie (if I have remembered correctly) and she was sweet and attentive, even though it was very busy. We will be back!!!
Thank you for the awesome review, Nancy! We are pleased to hear you had an enjoyable night! Cant wait to have you dine with us again.
Very chic new remodel. Attentive service throughout dinner. Salads were very good except the caprese where the tomatoes were under ripe and we thought the portion was small for the price. Waygu beef ravioli were fabulous. Chicken parm was good. We will be back to try other items.
Thank you for the review! This information has been passed on to the culinary team! Hope to see you again soon.
Love this place. Wish we would have found it sooner.
Thank you for visiting!
The variety of menu items and food quality are not what it once was here. The previous menu was refined with interesting, complex and unique dishes. This was once of our two favorite go-to fine Italian restaurants, but unfortunately no longer. This was our third visit since the new ownership reopened. We had been hoping that we would be impressed as we once were but it does not look like that will be the case. Last night when our main course was served it was cold. Wish the new owners the best but just not for us anymore.
Our experience was fantastic! From the hostesses to our waitress to even speaking with the owner, Bob. We will definitely be back!
The place is very nice inside. We miss the old owners who were very personable. The wait staff was very nice, but felt rushed through dinner when there was only 2 other tables occupied. I had the duck which was tough and seemed like it was cooked earlier and had been sitting around. The polenta that as served with it was not very hot. I would not order it again. My 3 dinner companions enjoyed their dinner. Overall, it was good but lacking the personality of the previous owners.
Hey Lynn, thanks for your feedback! We take our reviews very seriously. Being new owners we strive everyday to carry on the traditions of our previous owners. We appreciate this and will pass it along to our culinary team and our General Manager. We hope to serve you again soon!
We had a great experience. The food was delicious, the service was outstanding. My wife had the Salmon with potatoes and asparagus and is still talking about it two days later. I had the Chicken Parmesan an the meat was as as moist as you can ever expect. The old Colleoni's was Good, but this even better.I
We were with friends from out of town and they were impress
Thank you for a great night out
Hey Daniel! Thanks for the feedback! We are happy to hear your night with us was enjoyable! We hope to see you again soon!
Everything was wonderful. Food was fabulous.
We probably will not return, because the hostess and wait staff were not wearing masks. At this time with the Delta variant so prevalent, it is very careless not to be protected and not to protect the diners.
Hey Bob! We appreciate the feedback on your visit! There are currently no state or business mask mandates. However, we do go through extensive measures to make sure we sanitize everything before, during and after every shift. While we do not force anyone to wear a mask, you are always more than welcome to wear one into the establishment. For our guests that like the fresh air we also offer outdoor dining.
