Wonderful intro to Ethiopian food. Flavors of each dish were distinctive, heat was just right for our taste buds. We didn't order any 'hot' dishes after being warned that they were pretty fiery. We found the service to be prompt and warm. The staff brought...More

Admittedly we got food to go, so we did not eat in the restaurant. The dishes were very tasty, nice combinations of ingredients and spices. But portions were light and more than a bit disappointing in size.

Not disappointed at all. The food was excellent. I'd come back here again when I'm in town. The place was crowded. There was no empty table when we were there.

The flavors of the food in this quaint restaurant are spectacular. The unique and playful spices come through independently and in harmony. The service is very friendly and good as well. It is the best Ethiopian food I have eaten in the Bay Area.

The food is flavorful and freshly prepared. Sometimes, Ethopian food can be a overly salted and oily. -definitely not the case here. Service was great. We had the vegetarian combo and added the eggplant dish. Will definitely be back.

Cafe Colucci was rated best Ethiopian in the area by East Bay Express, and it has become my standard for that cuisine. While all of the Ethiopian food I've had in the East Bay has been really excellent, few have had decent service. Every dinner...More
