As an Italian native I found the food fair. Small portions, overpriced. Better options in Atlanta.

First time at Colletta - this definitely has made our “return again” list. We had reservations - the atmosphere is inviting and calm. There’s an open kitchen concept that allows for everything to be seen. Our server was very informative and extremely helpful. We ordered the meatballs as an appetizer (rated best in Atlanta), they came on a bed of polenta. They were too much pork for my liking but the bowl was cleaned by the others with me.
Amongst the 4 of us we had 3 different entrees: farfalle pasta with crab and shrimp, the lasagna and the chicken Parmesan. ALL the pasta is homemade and we had nothing left to bring home.

We had a great experience and even better meal. Highly recommend!

Overpriced and mediocre food; waitstaff was late to welcome us (“I didn’t see you!”), drinks were late, one sliver of Octopus for $16.

Not a great experience

Second time coming here and has been top notch both visits. My wife and I sat at the bar for dinner before going to a movie at Avalon. Our bartender, Travis, was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. Travis definitely helped make our experience a great one!

I had the duck anglotti and my wife was torn between the market catch and the shrimp & crab farfalle. Travis suggested the market catch and then surprised us with a sampler of the pasta that my wife was also considering. I have to say that my duck pasta and her sampler were two of the absolute best pasta dishes that I have ever encountered. Hands down.

Thanks to the restaurant and especially to Travis! You made it a special evening!

Very disappointing experience. We have had better experiences prior. There were no specials, were out of popular entrees and the service while friendly was poor. Not at all what I was expecting.

It took an hour after our appetizer to get our entrees, and my short ribs were cold! No one apologized for the mistake and the bill was $400 with two nice bottles of wine....not happy at all. Other diners were done dessert who sat down at the same time, and our entrees still weren’t out!

This was my first time at Coletta. The food and service were wonderful. The atmosphere was modern and open but quiet enough to have a pleasant conversation with my dinner guest.

My only concern would be the pricing seems over the top. I would say the pricing should be about 25% less to be a place I would frequent. As it stands I wouldn’t return very often.

Nothing about our time at Coletta’s was disappointing, everything and everyone delivered. It is on the pricey side, but the value and quality you get far outweigh the price. My wife and I are at Avalon 2 to 5 times a month, and we were looking for something new. Hands down the best Italian food I’ve had in Georgia. Great food, great atmosphere, but mainly great food.

Th experience did not begin well as my designated server also had a large table of guests and failed to even acknowledge me; Aaron, I think. Finally, who I perceived to be the SA and served my water, became my server. Arvin was attentive and knowledgeable. Very nice. Pasta and scallops were amazing. The complimentary risotto balls were hard and bland. Overall, a pretty good evening but with just a tweak on service it would have been excellent.

We had a party of 4 adults and decided to opt to be a "Guest of the Chef". The Chef sends out his/her selections for appetizers, entrees, and desserts. It was our first time at Colletta. It was an incredible experience to say the least. Every item that we were served was absolutely delicious!! The chef sent us wonderful choices!!! I highly recommend this option, you will not be disappointed!!

I really like the comfortable atmosphere of this restaurant. My husband and I had an early dinner as we were going to catch a concert nearby. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was delicious! I ordered the chicken parmesan and my husband ordered the lasagna. Both dishes were outstanding. We will definitely be coming back to taste the various entrees that are served at this restaurant.

Went to Colletta to celebrate a friend's recent employment. The atmosphere was cozy and warm yet felt upscale and fancy. You feel comfortable there but it still maintains a sense of integrity and a high end ambiance. The food was great, although the portions a little smaller than imagined, but we ate family style so everyone was able to try a bit of everything and we ended up quite satisfied at the end of the meal. The seasonal peach pizza was a favorite of ours. Due to the special occasion, we were even given a complimentary dessert at the end of the meal which was a very pleasant surprise. The price for the quality of food and the mood of the restaurant seemed very reasonable and fair. A great experience overall.
