Exciting menu poorly executed. Service was an issue as was attention the diners in my party. Thusly it was overpriced for average food.

We had a wonderful family dinner here. We hadn’t been in over a year, I’m glad we went back! I actually think they’ve improved overall.

We love the colosseum, go there often for lunch. It's inexpensive, great food, and close by. Very authentic southern Italian food. Can be slow at times but they cook to order.

We've been dining at the Colosseum for 25 years, since my daughter was 2 years old. The owner used to carry her around the restaurant to say hi to the other diners. We have always had great food there. I highly recommend it!

Southern Italian, well done. Appetizers, house specialty drinks, veal saltimbocca, veal piccatas all very good. The only puzzling aspect was their interpretation of tiramisu: a crunchy cookie buried under a soupy pudding... it tasted ok. it just wasn’t what we expected.

Had reservations for 6:30 but never got seated to 7:00 - let several other couples in before us because they knew them and were regular - not good business practice - waitress was worse - screw up order- had to ask for bread on table- poor customer service. Won’t go back
