Really enjoyed a meal with friends in Il Colosseo. It's a really nice place with good food, pastas, pizzas, steaks. It has a good varied menu with good salads and excellent desserts. The atmosphere and ambience are lovely and service was excellent. Prices are decent too. A short walk from the main shopping area with ample Street parking.

1st visit with 8 adults and 4 children. Great service, good portion size and quality of food was spot on. Pizza Italy was almost too big to finish - just remember to leave room for dessert.

My husband and I eat regularly in Il Colosseo and are very sad to say we were extremely disappointed with our service yesterday evening. On placing our order I informed the waiter I was coeliac and ordered my usual starter and main - a pizza. When my pizza arrived I thought I was in for a huge treat when a... More

The restaurant was very busy when I arrived, but I was offered to have a drink at the pub downstairs until a table gets available. I was seated twenty minutes later. The service was very fast and my pizza was delicious.

We went to this restaurant for Father's Day in June and the food was just wonderful. We have returned since and will continue to do so, when in Athlone. The food is very reasonably priced and there is great choice. The children were given pictures to colour in and this kept them entertained!

Fantastic food, very tasty and great portions. The food is extremely well priced and is great value for money - particularly for groups.
