We had a short stay in Athlone after Christmas and decided to try Il Colosseo for dinner. We weren’t aware that we should have booked in advance as they were very busy when we arrived. They were so friendly and very accommodating, they told us it would be 20 minuets wait for a table, we were happy to wait. Well they didn’t disappoint us, we were seated in less than 10 minutes.. the food was amazing, the service was excellent, the staff were lovely and there was such a lovely atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaurant, we will definitely return the next time we’re in Athlone.
