The carbonara had a bit too much black pepper and the duck was really dry but apart from that the other food at our table was good.

The food in this restaurant is lovely. There is a good choice of starters and the portion sizes are very generous. There is an extensive variety of main dishes from all Italian food. There is also some old classics that will suit everyone. The mains are again good portion sizes. There is a good choice of fish on the menu... More

Have visited this restaurant both with a large group for a Xmas Party and also in a small family group. This food is really good and the staff make it a very enjoyable experience. It is the best Italian food in Athlone. This is one place in Athlone that I have never got a bad meal.

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.

I ate here last weekend with family. First time in this restaurant. Surprisingly busy with very efficient staff. We didn't seem to be waiting too long for our orders to be taken or waiting between courses. Food was really good and good variety. Lots of staff but didn't get in each other’s way. They communicated well with each other and... More

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. We went on a Thursday evening and it was really busy, which would suggest others find it a great place to eat.. Only afterwards... More
