My wife and I went out on a Monday evening and tried the Il Colosseo , from the outside it looks small and pokey but it was quite spacious inside we ordered the starters and waited quite a while when it arrived ( I had the calamari) the waiter apologised and gave me a large portion which was great as it was perfectly cooked often being very rubbery my better half had breaded mushrooms then veal we also had the house wine which the waiter topped up on the house , it was a leisurely meal in a relaxing atmosphere and not too pricey oh we also had desert the full cost was €63 euro . It's well worth a visit but a little hidden away . Check it out .

Just back from a hen party here.

Good food , good service, good value menu to please all.

Had a nice almost private area down the back at the bottom of the steps.

One downside only one toilet and no one could get in for ages as another bride on a hen party had locked herself in there in a drunken mess. Only think I would change is get another bathroom!!!

A busy restaurant with delicious tasting foods. They got our booking time mixed up but we didn't have to wait long really for the table. The waiters were witty and child friendly. They allowed us adjust the menu for one of our kids who took a liking to mussels!! It's great value for money during the week with most mains at €12 each. House wine was delicious . People keep coming back here for the great food and value which is why it's such a success.

A fabulous restaurant with delicious Italian food - definitely one of the best around for authenticity - such a pity the service can be very hap hazzard. The food is very well priced especially the early bird is excellent value. Will definitely return
