The ambiance was good but the noise level was pretty high. A quiet date night would not be quiet here. Otherwise, the food was excellent and the Old Fashioned was well made.

Very crowded for a Wednesday night with lots of corporate diners. A bit loud but more energetic than annoying. Food was very good & service was also good even with the crowd. Calamari appetizer always a hit.

We started out with a very informative and friendly waiter. He recommended an Italian wine based on what we told him we generally like. The wine was fabulous! The food was divine. It is a bit pricey compared to what we normally spend but we would definitely return to Colletta and we have already recommended it to friends.

My reservation was at 7:15 pm on Saturday and we were seated at 7:20 pm. However, the foods came out at 8:40 pm. We were waiting 100 minutes to eat our dinner. It was terrible. Also every foods were salty... Terrible!

Took my wife there for her 70th birthday on January 2nd. Had a lovely time and the food and staff were great. Unfortunately, just recently, my wife and I took a friend there for lunch. We were disappointed in one of the dishes. My wife ordered a Panini with a side salad. The side Caesar salad was very soggy and the pieces way to big to eat without using a knife. The Italian Panini had way too much Mayonnaise and very little Italian cold cuts. And way too many pieces of
red onion.
The other two meals were the Salmon dish and the Ravioli. They were fine.

The service and the food are always on point when I come to Colletta. This was my first time coming for lunch and I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs. If you don't know about Colletta then you should know that all the pasta is made fresh onsite and you can taste the difference. This was the best spaghetti that I have ever had and the meatballs were huge. I had the Almond Budino for dessert. It was so light and not overly sweet. Our waitress was awesome she was engaged and made sure we know about all the good stuff on the menu. My water was always filled and she checked on us to make sure everything was going well. The manager even stopped by to thank my friend and I for coming in. My friend also ordered the spaghetti and meatballs to take back to her husband. He loved it so much they will be coming back for his birthday!!!!

The restaurant was very nice and lovely décor. We enjoyed the food but a bit pricey for the pasta dishes.
Large portion of the Chicken parmesan and loved the pasta that accompanied it.

Also tasty house specialty mixed drinks! One small thing is that we were a party of 3 with a late 9:00pm reservation and the hostess sat us in a half booth that sat 6 people. We snuggled on the left side of the booth because impossible to talk across the table. The couple we sat across from unfortunately had to watch our gazing as we pointed directly towards them Sorry about that but had no choice when munching on our food. The waiter was very nice and personally. Overall very nice evening and we will be back

Fantastic service and food. Justin and Valerie are wonderful and made this Wisconsin resident feel so welcome. I ate there twice in the week I was on a business trip because the food, ambience and service were outstanding. Their Seafood Farfalle is so good and with house made pasta made daily, you can't go wrong with any of the pastas. I love their almond bordini. Light and creamy dessert. Perfect after dinner. Can't wait to go back for my next business trip.

I've been to Colletta 3 times in the last 6 weeks and it never disappoints. This time I ordered the kale salad, which I shared with my friend and which was delicious, different from any other 'kale salad' with scorched grapes and grapefruit ginger vinaigrette, just the right amount of tart. I don't think my friend was 100% enthusiastic when we ordered it but she loved it once it came to the table. And it's an ample serving for two people.

Then we both ordered the duck breast, which was served on a wooden platter and prepared perfectly, crispy on the outside, medium rare in the middle with cabbage (yes, cabbage), golden raisins and smoked cherry agrodolce. Sound like too much? It was just perfect. My friend took about a third home (not me, mine was gone) and then told me she ate the rest at 11 PM.

Then we shared the almond budino, which I found to be too sweet, but hey, it's dessert. I still ate enough of it.

The only thing I would change about the experience is the lighting. The tables for two along the glass wall have only a candle on the table and no overhead lighting at all. It's dark....but that won't stop me from going. The food is awesome and something I don't make at home.

We went here for our anniversary before taking in a Movie. I ordered the fresh catch on risotto and was very disappointed. Basically it was a piece of lightly breaded bass in risotto. The fish was fresh but nothing special done to it, however the risotto tasted like basic rice and peas . My wife had the duck and was better but also nothing special. My overall impression was basically at best mediocre Ford at a premium price.

Food was great! Waitor was good In Beginning and then once he Up sold us on the wine ( which he never asked what we thought of what he wanted us to buy-and it was terrible) we hardly saw him again-super disappointed -especially when he convinced us to buy a $100 bottle of wine

Had a fun evening at Colletta! The service was very good and the food was delicious. Pizza was just ok....best to go around the corner to Antico if you want pizza. One thing we will not do next time is order a bourbon on the rocks...... the bartender put a large ice cube in my husbands bourbon and charged us 2 dollars for it!! Next time we’ll just take a few ice cubes from our water and put it in the bourbon! Haha

First time visit for Dinner with overall service, ambiance and food being perfect. Our waiter helped us make great food choices and kept us informed about a few large parties that would be ordering soon so we could get our order in prior. We ordered apps, dinner and dessert and enjoyed them all. I would highly recommend Colletta.
