    My second time here and it was absolutely delightful again! The food is very good, but the service is even better. My fiancé and I loved Jake who was attentive and wonderful and funny and knowledgeable. We’ll be back. Hope he’ll be there! Also, thanks to Anna for a pleasant and sincere table touch and dessert recommendation.

    Our experience at Colletta was nothing but spectacular. We arrived for our 8:15 reservation and the tables before us were lingering far longer than expected. Instead of making us continue to wait, by 9pm we were seated in a private room and the service and food were incredible! The Spumoni Alaska may be the best dessert I’ve ever eaten! Thank you Colletta for making this birthday dinner for my boyfriend an amazing experience.

    Service was clumsy, wine delivery odd. Bread wasn't warm, not enough oil dip. Calamari was good, the aioli was too assertively seasoned, overwhelming the calamari. The pork was overcooked on the tagliatelli, but otherwise v. good. Lasagna quite good.

    Nice ambiance, we were able to change our reservation from 9:30pm to 6:45pm. I did call the restaurant and they assisted with no issues. We sat down immediately after arriving . They do NOT offer any bread for free. You need to order bread from their menu. For this price point, that’s a no for me. Jack was our server, he did a great job. We ordered and advised that we had a movie at 8:15. Calamari came out at 7:30, it was meh. Very chewy, like gum. Fried nicely, little seasoning, definitely not fresh. Burrata was amazing, but cold. It’s a form of creamy cheese that should be served at room temperature. Their lasagna is good. No complaints, I can see why it’s a favorite. Chicken parmesan was dry. They overcooked the chicken, very hard to cut. And the pasta was dry. You can see from the photos . I will say this, For the prices being charged, they need to step up their game on flavor. There are so many places in the triangle that sell great authentic Italian cuisine for way less! Also the pink sangria was trash. Did not taste like sangria at all.

    We were promptly seated and served at our table which was an intimate round table with good lighting. The focaccia and burratta were delicious and the recommendations made by our waiter were helpful and spot on. The menu covered everyone from meat eaters to vegetarians ( we were told that most dishes could be adapted). We enjoyed our dinner and plan to return to try other menu items.

    There wasn’t a dish we didn’t like! There was 8 of us and were seated in a private room with the ambiance of a fire burning on the big screen tv. Jessica was a fantastic server and helped us navigate the menu with suggesting drinks and dishes. I definitely recommend their pizza, lasagna and the tiramisu. Can’t wait to go back!

    We went to Colletta for my husband‘s birthday. The restaurant is very nice inside and the service was great. The manager was visible and friendly. The food was good, but not great for the price we paid. My sons had a Margherita pizza ($15) and the Swordfish Livornese ($28). My husband ordered Lasagna ($34!!) and I ordered Shrimp Bucatini ($27). The Lasagna was very good and was a large portion. The swordfish was also good, but was a small portion. The pizza had a good crispy edge, but the rest of its center was soft and not at all crispy. The Shrimp Bucatini was okay, but nothing special-the noodles were large, which made it more difficult to eat. All of our drinks were fine, but also expensive for the size. Overall, Colletta just felt overpriced. No free birthday dessert either. 🙁

    Colletta gets very noisy quickly. The food is yummy and the wait staff is excellent. However, I WAS disappointed that I ordered pasta on two different occasions and I had to ask for a pasta spoon. The main courses are yum, but the desserts are ok.

    The food was really good, but didn’t quite meet the hype of how good we thought it would be. I was most excited about the lasagna and it was disappointing. I think the ratio of pasta to meat and sauce was off. Although the idea of a 15 layer pasta sounds intriguing, it was just too much pasta. The pizza, however was outstanding! We got the sopressata pizza and loved it. Definitely a fun place for date night though and Fenton itself is beautiful!

    This was the second time I’ve been to Colletta, my husband’s first time. The food is amazing! We got the focaccia bread to start and then split the lasagna and a margarita pizza. The lasagna is massive! Definitely easy to split between two people with some leftover to take home. The pizza is also delicious and a good size. I’m excited for leftovers for dinner tonight! I cannot recommend this place enough. We can’t wait to go back!

    This was our second visit to Colletta and enjoyed it as much as the first! Great recommendations from our server. We began with meatballs, focaccia, and calamari for our shared appetizers - perfect amount for 6 people. Our table ordered pizzas, chicken parmigiana and lasagna as entrees. (Yes, THE lasagna!). Was it worth $34, one of the higher priced items on the menu? A resounding YES - easily enough for lunch the next day and, reheated, tasted just as good. We sat at a booth - large enough for our party of 6 - and had plenty of room. We ended with the gelato special and look forward to returning again soon!

    Came here with my family to celebrate my birthday. Was disappointed with the menu choices and food portions. Restaurant is nice, great atmosphere. However I was really expecting better quality food. I love Eggplant Parmesan and they don’t have it at this location. Only Chicken Parmesan on the menu. Portion sizes are very small for the price. Best entree dishes on the menu for the price would be the Beef Lasagna. The pizza is great. Portion size is good. Looks like the location In Alpharetta, GA has more choices on their menu than this location.

    Meal was good. Have been here twice but beware. Keep your receipt and double check it with your bank statement. Twice, someone changed the tip amount. The first time, my husband let it go. Then it happened again. Not going to let it go this time. Waiting for someone to call us back. Had to request a call via email. Not good, Colletta

    Colletta - Cary, NCResponded 5 days agoHi Lisa and Paul, Thanks for your call today. I was glad to speak with you all and let you know we are addressing the issue.

We will be speaking with your server as well as our whole team during our team meeting tomorrow to ensure we are checking twice and not making any mistakes. We appreciate you.

    This was a great experience all around. Our server, D’Andre, was perfect! He was attentive and fun, always very correct - women first, etc. He kept us up to date on our food, managed drink orders very well. When the pizza oven was running behind, he let us know so we could re-work our orders. There were so many things to try on the menu that trying something other than pizza worked out well! I knew from viewing their website that there were great looking entrees! We met the manager, Joe, when he came around to check on us. Then again when he came running outside after I left my purse on my chair. I clearly was more concerned about out leftovers! 😂 And a shout out to the bartender who uses simple syrup for the old fashions! We will be back!

    The pizza sauce was bitter. Steak was barely warm not hot at all. Most food was at room temperature for everyone at table. We thought it must have all been setting out waiting for one thing to be finished. We threw away 80% of the food and took steak home to our dog. We won’t go back. It wasn’t busy or crowded. There was no reason for cold food. This was made worse because it was my wife’s birthday dinner. I say go once. Order something small and judge for yourself

    Over-priced lasagna , but good, not worth 34$ Room was very loud , the waitress was very nice . The Burrata was bland . Over all too expensive, but fits the Cary crowd that lives there. Per gli italiani che vorrebbe mangiare li, seconde me , non vale la pena, la burrata manco sapeva di latte( creo l’abbiano fatta in casa , è il latte che hanno usato boh non sapeva di vero latte ) , il tiramisù aveva due savoiardi , il limoncello non era manco freddo , Per coloro che non conosco la cucina italiana è buonissimo o meglio, come mio marito, ma io non mi sono impressionata , beh la lasagna era buona ma non per quel prezzo .

    Colletta was great! I went with a couple girlfriends but honestly it would’ve been an even better date night spot. It was a little loud (the music was like whoa when it came to a few songs) but the ambience was perfect. Our server Haley was great and personable with answers for everything. The food does take a while to come out but it is explained by your server before you even order that it’s because everything is made to order which I will never be mad at. The pastas were all delicious, I had the Tagliatelle which was everything and the burrata was a 10/10 antipasti. I am already planning my next visit back and have told several others all about it!

    We had Jake as our server and he was great. Very attentive, energetic and informative. We enjoyed our dining experience at Colletta. Our one negative was the focaccia bread. It was soooo bland. It didn’t have any flavor at all, which was disappointing. Other than that, drinks, main dishes and desserts were great.
