Italian
The name “Colombo” is the Italian form of “Colomba” the latin word for “dove”, which is the “Bird of Peace”. It is in the spirit of peace that friends and family gather to celebrate the every day occurrences that touch our lives. Great food, drink and conversations are the cornerstones for the sharing of these convivial, day-to-day passions at our Italian restaurant.

Colombo’s Cafe & Pastries stands for the beloved concept born in Italy of the “gathering place”… truly a place that “welcomes everyone, every day… at any time” translating as “Benvenuti a tutti” in Italian, whereby the tried and true, centuries-old tradition of “all are welcome” prevails.

    Service made the difference. Fairly busy night but the factor that made the major difference to us was the inexperienced and non attentive service provider. Polite but slow to take a drink order and therefore everything else was delayed. We had to ask for the bread and then she was slow to ask for our apps and entrees. We also had to ask for the bill. Most importantly, the food was tasty except for my pasta which made me think that the order was not picked up from the kitchen area by the wait staff right away. Too bad, it made us think that there’s probably better Italian in the Hyannis area.

    We had reservations and have been to Columbos many many times. We were seated right away in a comfortable booth. Our server seemed to be very overwhelmed. She did not know what Puttanesca sauce was or what B&B liquor was and when asked if she could check with the chef and bartender if we could order them she seemed confused. She forgot to bring items requested in a timely manner and after being reminded again. The ladies had the short ribs and the gentlemen had the chicken Toscano....both were delicious. Come desert time our guest ordered the Peanut Butter Cup cake which as you know is a slice of cake and received a small chocolate circular cake. The server stated that was the peanut butter cake. Clearly, it was not! When we were leaving the restaurant and passed the desert counter the large round peanut butter cake was in full view separated in slices and the tiny cake behind it. The regular sliced cake piece was what my friend ordered and did not receive. When my friend and I questioned the staff behind the counter they insisted it was the same desert only smaller! And made no apologies for the mistake! Maybe the same item to them but it definitely did not look like it. Quite honestly if you are offering two similar deserts they should let the diner know there are two types so the diner can choose not the restaurant! In these times, I understand how difficult it is to get staff and I have never written a negative review but felt the desert issue from the desert counter staff was the last straw and had to be addressed. As usual, the food was exceptional and why we return! Please bring back the Swordfish Puttanesca!!!

    We had made a reservation and glad that we did as the restaurant was very crowded. We got seated right away at a high bar table. We started off with a salad appetizers and we both had 2 different salmon dishes. Both were very good and our server was very attentive to us. We heard the people at the next table say that the pastas dishes they ordered were really good. I would recommend this restaurant.

    We visited for dinner for an anniversary celebration on a Thursday evening. We made a 630 reservation for dinner. Upon arriving we were told we could not be seated until 7pm due to a kitchen backup. Begrudgingly, we were seated but told we couldn't even order drinks while we waited for the "kitchen backup" to dissipate. Our sever was very pleasant and attentive throughout our meal, food was good (once we were able to order) drinks and dessert all as expected. This is the first time I've experienced this here, but have been told others have experienced the same (inability to be seated due to backup in the kitchen). This is a great place, always have enjoyed, but hoping they can get the kitchen figured out.

    My family enjoyed their first visit to Colombo’s. Tables were able to seat large parties. The noise level was problematic for those who have some hearing challenges. The wine selection met everyone’s favorite choices and the bartender pours a good drink. Our server Helen, was outstanding! She never missed a beat. The food was delicious and well prepared. We will be back.

    Colombo’s was a real find in Hyannis. Food was great - delicious and well presented. Would have liked a better selection of shareable appetizers. Our server, Adrian, was excellent. Good recommendations and made sure our special requests were followed through. Nice ambiance at the outdoor seating except for occasional jerk driving by on their bikes or hot rods. Prices were very reasonable. We had to double check the bill because we were expecting it to be a lot more. Loads of free parking right across the street. Colombo’s will be our new favorite in Hyannis and we highly recommend.
