This was my second visit to this restaurant, the first was about a year ago and I was extremely pleased and excited to go back. Having said that, the food simply wasn’t very good this time around. My Caesar Salad and lasagna were both bland and sort of tasteless. Left disappointed and thinking I could have had a better meal at Carrabbas for half the price. Atmosphere and service were both excellent but couldn’t overcome the mediocre food.

This has been one of my favorite restaurant for a while but my last visit was not good at all. My husband and I went Colletta for our 7th wedding anniversary last week and were surprisingly extremely disappointed. We order the “for the table” as we have many time if the past. The selection was odd, we didn’t get one of our appetizers, the pizza was spicy you couldn’t eat is (and I love spicy) and our dessert tasted old like it had been in the fridge for a long time. We trusted them with our special day and they didn’t deliver. We will not be going back any time soon.

Get the prosciutto board and lasagna. You will not be disappointed. The lasagna is deconstructed and don't expect the heavy ricotta filled crap in most inauthentic Italian eateries. This was decadent and worth every penny. We will go back often. Emily was an excellent server and the other servers pitched in when needed. Love!!!!!!!

Start to finish, impeccable!
Walked in to the restaurant and instantly got greeted with Raven's beautiful smile. Then went to the bar to grab a drink before sitting down for dinner. Heather the bartender suggested a very good bourbon for my old fashion and Brett beautifully executed it. My friend ordered a Moscow Mule and she enjoyed it as well.
We sat at their Kitchen bar and enjoyed family style. It was my friend's first time at Colletta so it was the perfect thing to do for someone that has not seen their menu before. Aaron took
care of us while Travis's shadow never left us for a moment. He recommended a very good wine and as he was doing the wine service, he proceeded with telling a story about the wine. Nice touch!
The meatballs, Kale salad, Prosciutto di Parma, Mushroom Pizza, Farfalle Pasta, Short Rib, Ricotta Fritters and their Italian cheesecake were all amazing.
Jeff and Dina, both managers stopped by multiple times to check on us. What a great experience and what a nice group of people. We will be back.

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!

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!

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!!
