I'm a life long Memphian, and I grew up eating at the Coletta's on Summer Avenue. So, once it burned, we switched to the parkway location and have been going there ever since. Let's start with the food. I love the food. It is consistently good, and all of their salad dressings are homemade. Having eaten Coletta's food for almost... More

My Mama is full blooded Italian. Her cooking is amazing. I'm bias but tell the truth too. Anyways, she doesn't like eating at Italian restaurants because the food is never quite up to her standards. Picky ain't she. Not really. We decided to celebrate her birthday at Coletta's Italian Restaurant. Perfecto!!! The ambience is spot on. Wall murals of Rome... More

I frequent this place once a week. I love the lunch special. Pizza salad and tea. 2 people can eat for less than 20 dollars. It is very rare

Elvis only ate pizza here. The place is dated with the decor but the food, drink and service more than make up for it. Service is first rate. Drinks are fresh. BBQ pizza is the BOMB to use the kids words. A large BBQ pizza will set you back about $23 but weighs in at over 3 or 4 pounds,... More

My wife and I graduated from Southwestern at Memphis 40+ years ago. Coletta's was one of our favorite places to go. The BBQ pizza was legendary and is still as good as it was that long ago. It was almost a time warp because nothing had changed. Great service, great food, and a classic Memphis institution. Met the new owner,... More

The food is always delicious. The amount of toppings placed on the piazzas has decreased over the years, probably due to inflation. The employees are friendly and eager to serve.

Wonderful Ravioli. The sauce is authentic, homemade, and the very favorite for our entire family. Over 50 years of quality Italian food for me since coming here on a date as a teenager. We ate all over "The Hill" in St. Louis this past summer and Coletta's is like having a little bit of "The Hill" in Memphis.

We were first a little concerned when we pulled up. The restaurant appears to be in a questionable area but we were so glad we tried it they have wonderfully, authentic, homemade food. Pizza, spaghetti and meatballs and pulled pork sandwich were all delicious. Their homemade Italian salad dressing is a must try.

We were trying to find a place for dinner and two restaurants we had gone to downtown had horrible waits. I found this place via a Google search and saw good reviews. When we pulled up I couldn't help but laugh that I made this recommendation, because it looks like a dump outside. Moving past the exterior, the staff was... More
