Food is amazing
Outstanding Food and Service !!!
The food was fantastic and so was the service. Already made our next reservation!
This was our second visit. Service is excellent and friendly. Food is fresh and tasty. BYOB.
Excellent food and service.
The food and service is always excellent. They have the friendliest staff that always makes you feel right at home.
Some of the food was great some were not good. The service was ridiculous as we had to wait 10 mins until I asked a waiter to help. One appraiser came out wrong with the clams and shrimp. Pasta fagioli soup was tasteless.
Food was really good, we had the Octopus which was very soft. For main's I had Sword fish which was very moist really enjoyed it. My husband had chicken Franchaise also really good. Nice size portions.
The negative was it was really, really noisy and it was only half full. I couldn't hear my husband speak. Would only go back on a week night instead of a Sat.
The entrees were delicious, especially the Fioretti meal. However, the appetizer we ordered (Misto Mare), was definitely a letdown. The shrimp was very overcooked and for the $18, it came with 2 clams, 2 shrimps and 2 pieces of octopus, so it felt small. The Tiramisu was wonderful, however the cheesecake was TERRIBLE. It was the worse cheesecake I have ever had. It was overcooked, the top of the cheesecake was overcooked and the cake itself had no flavor. The size of the cheesecake was so small compared to the large size of the Tiramisu. The cheesecake was $12. Overall, a little disappointed in the appetizer and dessert but the entrees were delicious.
Food was very good, service was excellent. The place was crowded and was somewhat loud which was good and bad. Made things livelier but also harder to hear each other at our table.
Staff was very attentive and food was delicious!! Will definitely be coming back!
the food was delicious!! service was impeccable and the ambiance was really nice!! Pascual the owner is gracious, kind and an amazing host! i felt like i was at his home!
THE PLACE CAN GET NOISY BUT THAT IS THE ONLY NEGATIVE. THE FOOD IS AWESOME AND THE STAFF IS GREAT!! RESERVATIONS ARE DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED EVEN ON A SUNDAY AT 5PM.
ONE OF MY FAVS ❤️
Delicious food. Fun atmosphere. Way too loud. Only donwfall.
Excellent Service and Outstanding Food.
We ordered off the lunch menu and it was more than enough. Eggplant Parm panini without bread served with a side salad was delicious . The best eggplant I have had in a long time .It was so good the people at the next table ordered it also and then ordered one to go . Definitely going back for that !!!
F ing amazing
I have been there 4-5 times and it has always been very good.
Last night the burrata was sour and the noise was unbelievable! Couldn’t even have a conversation with the people at my table.
Everything I ate was dead on. We started with grilled octopus, very tender and tasty. Then we spilt an order of spaghetti puttanesca, excellent. Finish with a pork chop.
greatest place in middletown. old school Italian
brooklyn style. owner is a wonderful person staff excellent
our favorite place and reasonably priced.
This place is a hidden gem that I hate telling everyone about because then I won’t be able to get a reservation. My server Pablo was incredible. So attentive, charming, and funny. The food, as usual, was amazing. Artichokes were perfectly fried, swordfish portion was insane, and the desserts I can’t even discuss. This is my absolute favorite place anywhere in Monmouth county.
Very nice place with friendly staff and amazing food! The place is too loud to really hold a conversation and the only downside to the place. Maybe adding in some room dividers or padding on the ceiling would help with this.
Fantastic food and service. Can’t say enough great things about Pablo our waiter and Pasquale the owner. Can’t wait to go back again.
We had a delicious meal and the service was great!
The food was exceptional, really delicious. But the volume is over the top loud. I don't think it's intentional, but it was difficult to hear anyone at my table without leaning in or shouting. But honestly, the best Penne Vodka I've ever had!
Food is fabulous, one of my favorite restaurants. You won't be disappointed.
We asked to be moved to a table in a corner to avoid the noise level. We are frequent diners at Il Colosseo and would like to continue to be. We were never moved and there were 3 other tables open. No matter how crowded we should have been moved. We could not talk to our guests. We have brought over 10 other diners to the restaurant so far and really enjoy the food. Hopefully we can continue.
Phenomenal meal and service but waaaaaayyyy too loud!
As always, an over all excellent dining experience. Food is amazing, staff is wonderful, and is now our go to place. Highly recommended.
Outstanding Food. Excellent Service. Great spot for Dinner.
Delicious food. Loved our server. VERY loud.
Food was fantastic. The server and staff did a fine job. It is extremely loud on the weekend which was a negative. Fortunately, I can enjoy their great food during the week and also for lunch. Avoid the weekend loudness.
The food was amazing and the waiter was exceptional. He allowed us wait time in between courses which allowed us to enjoy our company . The noise level was extremely loud which made it nearly impossible to hear one another. I wish the acoustics could be improved. All of the staff was very friendly and inviting.
For and service are very good. But it is impossible to hold a conversation with fellow diners because the hard surfaces magnify the noise. If you want to talk to your table mates this place is not for you.
Awesome, as usual!
Family run restaurant owner comes up to the table to make sure you’re satisfied Alfredos and amazing waiter food is delicious highly recommend it
