The food here is very good, authentic and hot! Service is fair, but got the job done for a party of 5 - no problem. Portions are large, so much that we all had take home boxes! Great spot for large parties with several very large tables!

It's reliable, my cousin kept saying. He thinks he's been coming since they opened, maybe 4 decades ago? Then why have I never come before- since we've hung around here for over a decade. So we corrected this. And it was about time! We had the mixed salad (perfect), T bone steak (very good), lobster with linguine - "perfect" (changed... More

Used to come to this restaurant many years ago. What a pleasant dining experience with my colleagues last night! The manager was kindly enough to accommodate our group of 10 starving Suzuki music teachers after the 5 hours of graduation concert at Holy Names University by seating us before it was open at 5pm. Friendly staff and manager served us... More

Son had spaghetti with Niman Ranch meatballs and a... More

My friend who lives in Oakland took me to Italian Colors. We arrived around 8:15pm so there were available tables on a Friday night. We had the brussel sprouts as a starter and they were delicious. We could have shared it with another person or two. We both ordered the scallops dish and it was also delicious. There were 4... More

This is a nice restaurant in the Montclair section of Oakland. Parking can be sometimes challenging but don't give up and you will find a space. The food is original, but recognizable. Healthy helping sizes. The prices are reasonable.
